Anglers see them in most waters they fish but few know how to target these monsters. Carp offer anglers a challenge much different than most other species. Carp species are part of the minnow family, native to Asia, and can grow to well over 20lbs. They are found in deep pools and eddies in large rivers and in brackish bays and coves in lakes. Bottom feeders by trade, carp are mostly opportunistic omnivores that feed on clams, snails and aquatic insects. Commonly groups of carp will feed "cow style" grazing the bottom giving the angler an advantage by being able to spot feeding fish.
