  4. I caught > 5,000 carp in NJ, USA, since the 1990s with my homemade corn meal bait or whole kernel corn on a #8 short shank single hook. My biggest common carp weighed 47.5 lbs on a certified scale. Caught 775 carp in my best year. Landed my limit of 25 carp per day several times. I throw out a can of whole kernel corn whenever I go carping. Bought > 200 cans of corn this year. Easy way to catch carp is to throw out a can of corn in the same spot every day, then use corn bait on light line with no weight.
  5. I tagged > 8,100 fish in NJ with American Littoral Society tags and 248 of my tagged fish were recaptured in 11 different states from NH to NC. Check out //littoral society.org.
  6. 4/4/2022 I caught and released an Eastern Creek Chubsucker with a 1/8 oz twister tail leadhead jig on 4 lb test line in Colliers Mills WMA, NJ, USA, that was bigger than the all tackle world record. Foul hooked fish are disqualified from world record consideration. If I hook it in the mouth next time, I may apply for the record. I know where it lives.
  7. Salem canal and Delaware River. I caught a 42.5 lb common in the Delaware.
  8. In NJ bowfishermen shoot carp with a bow and arrow and never catch and release. Here is a pic of 100 carp that 4 bowfishermen shot in one night. Pic removed by Buzzbomb
  9. I release most fish except carp because they are a nonnative invasive species. In NJ it is illegal to release certain species of fish. I found the dog by the Delaware River and reported it to animal control which took it away. There are dog fighting rings nearby.

  11. If you try it, let me know how you do. I like soft, rubbery bait, but it doesn't always come out that way when I cook it.
  12. I completely cover the hook with a corn meal ball, then check my bait frequently. I use a #8 treble hook on the end of 12 lb test fluorocarbon line with no weight for big fish and a #14 gold treble hook on the end of 2 lb test fluorocarbon line with no weight for small fish. Occasionally a big carp will pick up the bait, swim away and pull my rod into the water in a few seconds. I have been very fortunate to not have lost a rod yet, but I had to wade out into a river to retrieve some. If the action is fast, I hold my rod and watch the slack line. I caught 265 carp last year. Longest was 35".
