Carp Fishing with Corn and Light Gear

Hereís some carp fishing footage from two different days. The first day I had a tough go around and got skunked but my buddy ended up catching a few. Second day I hooked into a bunch and ended up getting two huge carp plus some smaller ones.

I was running an Uglystik with 8# ten year old Spiderwire, fortunately it held up for quite a few fish but I did end up breaking off on one fish.

Light line and gear+huge carp=one heck of a fight! My other set up was a Walmart special $20 combo with 10# test flurocarbon.

I like to run cheaper set ups because Iíve seen rods go flying in the water from carp grabbing them before! Iíd rather lose a $20 set up than see a $180 St. Croix combo disappear in the river.

Thanks for watching,
