Carp Fishing in Wild Wonderful West Virginia USA


Oatmeal Jack's Shenandoah and Potomac River Swim




Even if you break your arm you can hold up a trophy carp, even if you are a blonde you can catch a big carp, even if you play soccer you can still catch a carp, even if you have a pretty red jacket or you fish with your hairy old uncle you can still catch lots of carp!


There are Many Ways to Enjoy Carping. A New Way to Fish for Carp - Called the European Method Involves Chumming to Attract the Carp - Yes its Legal in West Virginia - and Attaching the Bait to the Hook with a Hair (Thread) so the Hook is Bare and NOT Covered by Bait. Doughballs have always caught carp, and work well if just wrapped around the sinker with some corn on a hair rig too. Sometimes All You Need is a Simple Can of Sweet Corn to Catch a BFC!



This Carp Fishing Website is Dedicated to Having FUN Fishing for Carp. It Does Not Matter How Big the Carp is, if You Caught it that is ALL FUN. We are Also Dedicated to Carrying on the Traditions of Carp Fishing in the USA and Teaching Yound and New Anglers How to Carp Fish. We Also Follow the Traditons in the US that Once You Catch a Fish its Fate is in Your Hands, Keep it or Release it, its up to You. The ONLY Thing that Matters Here is Having FUN Fishing for Carp.
