Are bobbers for beginners fishing?
Your recipe to a fun day on the dock: live bait, a hook, split shot sinker, and a bobber. This combination is the go to for beginner fishing tackle. Live bait is recommended for quantity of fish and diversity in fish species while on a quick lake fishing trip.
Do you need float for carp fishing?
I have recently spent several trips trying to work out why, and I have come to a number of conclusions. Firstly, it is defiantly possible to catch Carp with a float. Fishing with float tackle heavy enough to control even a small Carp, means using stronger line which the Carp are more likely to detect and avoid.

A fishing float (or bobber in the US) is an item of angling equipment. Usually attached to a fishing line, it can serve several purposes. Fishing with a float is sometimes called float fishing.

They can be caught in all depths of water from a foot to 30 feet or more. Carp usually patrol the margin areas early morning and late evening in rivers and lakes foraging for food and can be caught near reed beds, lilies and most structure relatively easily at these times of day.
What size hook should I use for carp?
Use hooks in sizes 4 to 8, with shanks long enough to hold the bait of your choice. The size of the sinker that you choose depends on your desired casting distance and any current in the water that you are fishing. For finicky carp, you may want to use smaller hooks and lighter line.
How do you rig a line for carp?
To make your own carp rig, start by forming the “hair” by creating a loop knot on the end of a length of fishing line. Then, attach the bait to your rig by threading the hair through it and holding it in place with a bait stop. Slide a hook onto the rig and tie a knotless knot to secure to the line.
Where do carp like to hang out?
Carp tend to stay in murky water, and they’re likely to spook easily when the water is clear. These fish also prefer warmer waters, so look along the shoreline, backwaters, and side channels for muddy water with dense vegetation. Carp spend most of their time feeding on insects among aquatic vegetation.
Why do carp jump out of the water?
When a carp travels from deep down up towards the surface, the pressure on their swim bladder increases and so by jumping out of the water and expelling air from their swim bladder, the pressure is relieved, and the carp can then swim properly nearer the surface.
What smells are carp attracted to?
Carp likes smelly baits, especially in summertime, so garlic is a great option during warmer seasons. Some anglers use it in winter too, mixed with other, usually sweet, ingredients. Sulfides in garlic are actually those molecules perceived as smell by fish (and people).
