Hi Italo I live on Balsam Lake, and I was wondering how to catch Carp, and if you can catch them during the spawn. Thanks Matthew

Hi Matthew…You can catch carp all year long. I have even caught them them ice fishing. Spawning time is not the best time to fish for them since they are concentrating more on spawning than feeding. If you do plan on fishing for them at that time, I would suggest you don\’t fish for them where they are obviously spawning (splashing on the surface, groups swimming around with dorsal fins/tails out of the water), instead, go to areas that look like feeding areas with no carps comotion (around cattails, mud-bottom bays, etc.), and fish either kernels of sweet corn, or a prepared bait on the bottom….God bless you, Italo
