Hey Joe,

As far as what bodies of water, if I've read correctly you live near the Connecticut river which is loaded with em, and chances are most other tributaries and/or water bodies close by. Best thing to do on that is ask local fisherman when you see them, or maybe local tackle shops and of course google "carp in whatever".

Carp like to feed in water 2- 10 feet in depth usually. This is typically in slower moving water, along brush covered shorelines, around debris piles, along weed beds, or where currents swirl back in on them selves. In other words where food would typically collect.

Tackle wise I would suggest a minimum of 15 pound test if you can manage it. Braid is nice since it is a slimmer diameter so you can get it onto smaller reels ( make sure you use about 15 yards of mono backing first though, otherwise the braid will spin on the reel. The Albright knot is very useful for combining two lines together). Weight is dependent on the current and your style. I prefer using weight and fishing the bottom, some like to drift the bait along, yet others like to float. All are great methods, it all comes down to your preference.

The easiest method when first starting in my opinion, is to find slower current, use a sliding 3/8 or 1/2 ounce weight, a swivel with a 5 inch length of line to the hook, a few pieces of particle like corn/chick peas/maple peas or a small ball of bread on your hook. You will want to keep your drag really loose, or your bail open. When carp grab food, most times they panic and run once they realize they are hooked. These are very strong runs and they will pull your pole into the water, or snap your line in the blink of an eye. Of course always check to make sure all baits are legal in your waters.

Hopefully that will help get you started. As you go we can talk more about methods and baits and such. I do not want to overwhelm you with too much info to fast heh.

On a final note, let the fish run when it wants, stop reeling and gently guide them. When they slow then you can try to gain some line on them. You can do this by keeping pressure on the fish, slowly lowering the rod while reeling, then gently pulling the rod back up to move the fish toward you. If they run you into snags, relax and be patient. Give the fish time and chances are they will move through the snag and back out. If you try to pry them to fast you run the risk and snapping off. Carp fishing is all about patience.

Hi Joe,
You asked where QOUNNIE is. It is one of the salt ponds in Charestown, Rhode Island. "Qounnie" is a short for Qounochontaug. I have had some great striper fishing & clamming there over the years. You can fish the surf or the salt pond from the state launch/parking area. (free parking)

You do not need a boat to fish there. I ussually take the kayaks to hit all the best fishing spots though. Then wade fish.

I hope this helps.

Hey, saw your blog and maybe I can help with the carp questions. Hit me up with any and I'll see what I can do. I'm a pretty avid carp fisherman and while not an expert I do have workshops, host a derby as well as volunteer in the national park service.
