Carpe Diem! 10 Videos with Huge Carp

Carp Fishing: Earlier this week, a Game & Fish reader shared a photo on our Camera Corner page showing a large carp he caught on ultralight gear in New Jersey.

Kenny Parkerson wrote the 12-pound carp put up a great fight, and then interjected, "not much people fish for them, but they should."

Game & Fish interjected, "Bet there are lots of online carp fishing videos out there that could generate interest."

With the help of our other family members in the Outdoors Sportsman Group, we put together the video log of carp fishing videos that may show you something you've never seen before, or give you a reason to learn more about catching these brutish fighters.

Seize the day, carp anglers, and enjoy!
