    More specificly has anyone fished elphicks in kent?


    Also what baits and rigs are you having success with this year (on any lake)

    What is elphicks anyway??... google for that term and i found some football player..

    Carps are overrated as game fish... but i will love to go to USA and then catch Carps with bow and arows... i bet its pure adrenaline...

    Here we made smoked Carps in Winter time and thats a maybe only way you can use this fish for some nice meal.

    We catch on boillies those examples from 15-20-25 kg... bigger a better Carp it is important for final product,then kill him and clean gutt,scales,head and fins,

    after that some huge filet knife and made 2 fillets but dont pull bones out,
    in big plastic pot i put then a bit salt and its rubbed inside meat,

    then comes drying a bit before smoking and then again some drying time,

    after 2 weeks you have smoked Carp that is best to prepare inside owen but wraped in aluminium folium with some olive oil and cooked potato on side with butter and spices and herbs...

    That is a way how i like those Carps... cause in this way they are comparable with best fish there... but like i says you need big examples for this sport..

    he is after salting,smoking and drying for some time very good fish.

    There is also recipe for Carp cobasse but i didnt made this... i love smoked Carp from
    deep gravel lakes...

      Carp Zoom from Hungary have best boillies,first they work good and are very cheap
      in comparision to other brands.

      Their Carp Zoom Pop-Up Crab aroma 16 mm catched huge amount of very spooked fish
      here on one very difficult water,they are reusable as one boillie you can have for few fishing trips.

      If you have chance try those brand.. you can be suprised what this boillie can catch..

      And from rigs i use flourocarbon as tieing material cause this lakes are very clear,fish is spooked and dont come much on hooks,very hard lake for fishing...

          Most fun way I catch carp in UK is on a bread float. 1/4 slice of sliced bread pressed onto your hook , dip your hook for 1-2 seconds to gain a bit of casting weight . Cast out and wait . Bit like float fishing , difference is you are watching your bait , not the float . Make sure it's got a mouth full before you strike . Tight lines

                  We definitely dont eat them, we try and catch specimens
                  Like 50-60lbs fish

                  And yeah bro i use boileys aswell (depending on what lake im at) also we fish for catfish aswell but not like you nutters over there, we use rods and reels not fingers and thumbs YEE-HAW

                    On my first evening on the Ebro here my friend hooked a 158 pounder, even with all the proper kit it took a 45 minute battle to land, a totally unforgettable experience, especially for the guys smoking mature outdoor sativas for the first time ever....

                    The river carp there are equally special, long sleek torpedoes, totally unlike the fat blubbery boilie fed blobs in UK lakes, likewise Dorada in the sea there, you would not believe the monster monster fight a little 200g tiddler puts up.

                          We caught an awful lot of carp on kernel corn when we were kids. Wow 60lb carp that must be fun to land, ours don't get that big
