    Re: dead carp reported all over delta system

    I see them all the time when I fish the delta and by walking the shoreline, flipping for bass on rocky points with crank baits. This one I saw was gigantic, body all dried up and stomach filled up with eggs. It looks like a fish that got bloated for not being able to spawn. Location = Port of Stockton

    Dead fish makes good scavenger for vultures and condors with red head and black body.

    What makes carp wants to jump out of the water during changing tides, that I do not yet understand.

    Try a 10 to 15 lb carp using steelhead gear first, then try a really big one. They'll tear you a new one most times.

    ChristJake: That is a huge carp. I have never been there, but I heard that in England carp are considered a great sportfish. That fish would be a trophy!
