    Even though carp isn't consider as a game fish, it is also illegal to snag them believe it or not.

    Zig rig, google that and see what you come up with. Check out bigcarptackle.com for the necessary tackle and bait.

    Re: How to catch suspended carp

    Peanut butter, bread, flour, and 2 eggs......Wet the bread but don't soak it, add pb flour and eggs and mix together. If the dough is too soft, add more flour until the consistency is right and its also a good idea to place the dough in a cooler with an ice pack, if not......the dough tends to become soft in the heat because of the oil in the pb. If there's no current then try what whofish suggested about no weight.....suspended carp will also hit under a float with the bait suspended as well. Good luck and let us know how you do.

    line, hook and no sinker.

    Use peanut butter with a bread and mold it onto your hook and into a ball.

    The bread will keep the hook float and the peanut oil will releases its crap attractant enzymes for a nice catch.

    good luck
