Head out for a day trip friends, or a night trip after work to hook into some freshwater freaks of nature, and prepare yourself for a fishing experience unlike anything you've ever seen before! Pound for pound some of the hardest fighting freshwater fish, and giants at that, are waiting for you inside Austin's city limits, and the gentlemen over at Austin Carp Anglers have a unique and incredibly efficient method for getting you hooked up!
“Euro” Carp fishing is a bait fishing technique with European gear that is specifically engineered for catching giant Carp, and can also be used to target Smallmouth Buffalo (in the Fall and Winter months). This gear can’t be purchased anywhere locally. Infact, there is only one retailer in the across the United States, and that's merely an online shop out of Oklahoma!
12 ft rods, big pit reels for playing large fish, and casting up to 100 yards are the first marks of this unique freshwater gear. Each setup also comes with bite alarms that sound when a fish takes, and a reel set to free spool allowing the fish to run until you get to the rod. Then comes the challenge of playing a freshwater giant, on a #6 hook, all the way to the net!
From there the fish is handled very carefully, unhooked, weighed, photographed, and finally released. All of the gear is centered around fish care. They provide landing mats that allow you to unhook the fish without it harming itself from thrashing and a sling that allows us to safely weigh and release the fish.
The guys at Austin Carp Anglers have clearly got you covered with all the gear you didn't even know you needed! So all you need to bring is your Texas Fishing License and your A-Game and the Austin Carp Anglers will take care of the rest!
