What size & type hook for small carp?

6 posts in this topic

I saw some small (14-18 inch) carp at a local lake.  If I want to try to catch them, what size & type hook should I use?

Small, say sized 10, circle hooks of any brand. No hookset necessary, just reel until the hook latches on.

depends on what kind of rig and bait. If you are putting canned corn on a hook than a 8 or even 6 baitholder will work. For bread or oatmeal you can use a bigger hook. I don't use circles for carp. A circle kind of goes against the logic of the hair rig that I use now.

just make up some doe add some cotton and vanilla flavoring, the cotton holds the foe together and the flavoring help attract them
