  1. There are no carp shops in Forida, you might be able to find a few bits and bobs in the saltwater shops on the coast or at a Bass Pro or Cabelas. However the only three actual carp tackle shops (with real shops that is) in the USA are in Chicago, on the St Lawrence near Waddington and Oklahoma. There are at least 15 online carp tackle stores based in the USA too
  2. Hey Jim - are you the same Jim West who fished the ATC with Baitboat Charlie a few years back?
  3. There are some places to fish for carp around houston, better though to take a drive up to Austin and fish that area as there are much larger carp around there. As for gear I am afraid without it you are pretty stuck, no one rents carp gear here in the USA (it's just not a popular enough sport). If you message me your contact info I will try and get you hooked up with some of the carpers I know down that way, they may be able to lend you gear and show you places too.
  4. And I have been fishing that way since before I left the UK over 10 years ago.
  5. Pete - generally not, and you are also unlikely to find many good carp hooks.
  6. Try the Columbia where it drops down into the USA. If anyone else has infor on B.C. lakes etc I would love to get some as it's one of those places I intend to explore soon.
  7. Simon - there is a likelyhood that the CAG will be having a get together on one of the Northern Washington lakes this summer (venue undecided at the moment). If you PM me your info (email, phone or carrier pigeon) I will try to remember to send you updates as I get them.
  8. Try Wacker Baits - you can PM me for the web site address.
  9. The only big tournament I know of around that time of year is the CAG's Austin Team Championships (in Austin TX). Will check with some of the NC guys to see if they have heard anything. I do know that later in 2007 there will be a fairly big tournament out here in CA - more to come. Keith
  10. Chloraphyll is not a flavour it is a chemical that allows the plant to photosynthesis. Not something that attracts the carp.

  12. It will be around September. PM me the details
  13. Cool - I might be working up that way later this year, will remember to bring my stuff
  14. All Users of this forum - this is a reminder that this site is about Carp Fishing and threads about or containing references to bowhunting (or bowfishing) will not be tolerated - I will delete them without explanation or compunction. Keith Thompson
  15. Plenty of places in Oregon to catch some stunning carp. I will put you in touch with the Carp Anglers Group Chair for Oregon if you PM me your details (telephone and email). keith
  16. Not seen any of those blanks or even heard of the company. Where are they based? Do you have a website for them?
  17. I use the hair and a running rig as my standard rig all the time.
  18. PM me with your email address and we can chat. Keith
  19. If you want Sturgeon just come to San Francisco and fish the bay - I know a few spots That way you can also take in some SF nightlife, attractions etc and catch a few carp too. My biggest sturgeon from the bay is 108 inches (from the charts I use that approximates to 394lb). Guides I know of up north are:- Ken Elsea (360) 653-5924 Salmon, Steelhead, Sturgeon Sturgeon guide
  20. Simon - I know you can only fish one in Sask. If you PM me you email details I will pass them on to another Brit who lives and fishes for carp in Sask. Keith
  21. I have fished the US side 4 times (including during the recent World Championships) and the Canadian side once
  22. The best advice I can give is fish the US side - you can use two rods instead of one on the Canadian side
  23. Plenty of carp up that way - just have to wait for some of the Canadians to log in and let you know where.
  24. Add Blue Marsh to that list as there are some good carp in there too. My grlfriends family are from Rehresburg (sp) so I have visited some of the waters in that area. If you feel like a little further journey try Lake Marburg too.
