What Do Carp Eat For Food

Published

on

There is no question that the carp is a fascinating type of fish for you to try to catch. They are a very unique species in that they are not only prized throughout the world for their taste, but the koi version of carp has become well-respected as an ornamental fish.

Certain species of carp also have the ability to survive for literally weeks in watery environments without oxygen, simply because they make use of glycogen, turning it into ethanol and carbon dioxide. So it’s definitely a unique fish, but how do you catch it?

Well, one way is to study what the carp eats. Take a look at some interesting facts about the carp’s diet below: 

here is a study about the feeding necessities of carp.

The Natural Diet of the Carp 

First, let’s examine the natural diet of the carp. For starters, this fish breed enjoys eating both plants and animals, and that means they are an omnivore. Interestingly enough, the carp actually has teeth inside their throat, and that can assist them with crushing hard objects such as the shell of a snail, clam nut, leech, crayfish, or mussel. Anglers have found other things that carp will eat as I have described below for your benefit.

Carp will also have an immense preference for the larvae of water borne insects such as water beetles or true flies. You will also often find them eating worms or algae as well. Here are some examples of other specific items that the carp will just love to feast on:

Zebra Mussels 

Much like other types of small crustaceans, the carp will often go after this prey simply because they have the ability to crush their shells with their powerful molars. The edible flesh inside the shell of the zebra mussel is almost considered a delicacy for many different breeds of carp. 

Insects 

Carp will not only feast on insect larvae, but they will often enjoy the insects as well themselves. One tell-tale sign that the carp are beginning to go after insects would have to be when you see them creeping to the surface.

This often means that damselflies, horseflies, dragonflies, and many other insects that dwell near the surface of the pond will be no match for the carp, and you will soon hear a suction-like sound as they inhale another insect victim. 

Invertebrates 

Carp also love to scrape off invertebrate organisms off the watery floor as well. They will often get their fill of such things as corals, sea cucumbers, corals, flatworms, threadworms, earthworms, and leeches. They are bottom feeders, after all. 

Nuts and Berries 

Yes, carp will definitely eat nuts and berries. They will eat the berries because they enjoy the taste. Additionally, part of the reason they enjoy nuts is simply because they can.

Once again, don’t forget that they have those nasty molars in the back of their mouth helping them munch on things like this. Take this to heart: if you are fishing for carp, then chances are you should try for them in an area that has an overhanging tree branch.

Although it depends on the specific point in time, these carp love to congregate around these areas to have a tasty nut or berry snack. 

Leeches 

Indeed, there have been many accounts of fishermen using leeches as a bait and then unintentionally catching carp instead of their intended catch.

This is because carp are always on the lookout for scurrying prey and leeches have a tendency to move around a lot even on the bait hook. However, you can definitely use this to your advantage and include leeches in your carp-catching arsenal. 

Crayfish 

Crayfish will occur naturally in most lakes and rivers throughout North America and Europe. Like carp, they too are a bottom-dwelling type of fish.

They are a tasty delicacy to the carp, and there are some who say that the crayfish are much like candy to the carp.

Moreover, part of the reason that carp love to eat these crayfish is because they are a great source of protein to the carp. Additionally, crayfish are fairly large, so it’s almost akin to a steak dinner for the carp. It’s definitely something that they will regularly want to forage for. 

Crustaceans, Period

Carp just simply have a thing for all kinds of crustaceans of any sort. They really go to town on them simply because of those tough molars they have.

Besides the ones we’ve already mentioned, they also enjoy snails. While it’s not something that they will deliberately search for, if a carp comes upon one of these snails, they will treat them no different than clams or mussels.

These snails might be able to use these protective shells against other predators, but the carp will be able to eat the snail at will. 

What of the baits for carp? 

Of course, now that you know all about the natural foods that a carp prefers, if you are still interested in fishing for them, you should be aware of the bait they are accustomed to as well. Since carp is a fish that enjoys to eat, you should take into consideration what type of bait to use. The good news is that there are plenty to consider. 

Corn or Maize 

Even though it might not have been your favorite vegetable growing up, the fact remains that carp cannot get enough of corn or maize. Additionally, it doesn’t really matter whether the corn is in solid form, canned, frozen, or even in creamed of peached form.

Indeed, corn is actually considered to be a staple in the carp-catching industry. There have actually been numerous individuals who have not only caught their intended catch of carp while using corn, but they have also caught other species such as pike or muskie!

Of course, it might seem very strange to you that corn would be such a wonderful option for catching carp. Granted, while it doesn’t naturally appear in aquatic ecosystems, it has been proven by many people even with video that carp will indeed catch corn.

Part of the reason for corn being so popular with these carp is because it is rich in carbohydrates and the remaining parts of the corn is composed of various parts of fiber.

Thus, part of the reason why the carp love it so much is because it gives them an instant pick-me-up and helps them continue to do what they do best – forage. 

Bread 

Yes – you read that right – bread. This type of bait might seem like an incredibly cheap option, but if you use it right it can be absolute dynamite.

The best thing about using a slice of bread for catching carp is that it consists of at least 75 percent carbohydrates, which yet again is a good way to give the carp some quick energy.

The fact that the bread has a load of protein, fibers and fats within the remaining 25 perfect means that it will not only be easy for the carp to digest, but it will help them about their day in a solid way. This is why it’s good for bait. Carp will seek this out anyway, so they will attack this every time it hits the water. 

Indeed, there are many individuals that have had success with bread in the springtime when the carp are just barely beginning to wake up and want something that won’t roughen up their metabolism.

Obviously, there are some difficulties with bread, such as the fact that they tend not to last long in the water and any surrounding water fowl might go after them too. However, as long as you barb your bread right on the hook this shouldn’t be a problem. 

Boilies 

Of course, these boilies are a bait that has been invented. However, the boilies are a great bait for the carp because of the added ingredients that they have.

Simply put, a boilie is a wad of flours, eggs, and various attractive additives that have been rolled together into a ball. These ingredients are usually mixed into a paste and then after they are fully cooked they are rolled into a ball-like shape.

They are hard-boiled, and after they leave the appliance they are air-dried for a 24-hour period so that they become fully hardened. This process is important because it allows the bait to last a longer time within the water. 

Even though this is simply an invented bait, it has been found to be incredibly effective at catching carp.

Indeed, there have even been fishermen in France that have been pleased to notice that the carp will even abandon their choice of natural food and simply go for one of these boilies! Of course, the goal of the boilie is for the carp to view this addition as a viable food source that is full of nutrition.

Unfortunately, the best way to buy this fish would be in bulk, but that can get expensive. However, sometimes you get what you pay for. Simply put, these boilies will last far longer than bread or corn, and you won’t have to contend with nuisance fish either. 

Conclusion: Carp: An Invasive Species 

Although they had a promising beginning on the North American continent, the carp is unfortunately now viewed as a species that is problematic at best and invasive at the worst.

It all began with immigrants to the United States in the mid-1800s. There were many of them who were surprised that the United States did not have any type of carp population. You see, this fish species had been prized in Asia as a human food choice for 4,000 years and it had also made its way to Europe where it had been held in the same regard for 2,000 years.

Indeed, there were even Austrian princes who had as much as 20,000 acres of carp in their royal ponds. 

So what went wrong? Well, part of the reason is because carp are a very hearty breed of fish. They not only can survive without oxygen, but they are heavily tolerant of polluted waters as well.

They were imported to the United States by several different entrepreneurs, including one Julius Poppe, who began importing the carp from Germany in 1872.

He started off with five, but he eventually ended up with a whole farm of them in California by 1876. As is common with the entrepreneurial spirit, Mr. Poppe truly thought he was on to something:

“There should be at least one person in every U.S. county who will raise this fish and sell it to others so that they can fatten it for their own eating table,” he said. “The carp is cheap but sumptuous and also quite convenient.

Indeed, they literally can be eaten throughout the year.” However, it would only take a few decades before the carp would fall out of favor. Indeed, they were such a hearty breed that they began to take over all parts of the nation’s waterways. 

Another part of the problem is that carp literally breed like rabbits. One female can lay millions of eggs, and if even a small fraction of these survive into adulthood, you can definitely see how pervasive this species can become.

They are also bottom feeders, which can cloud up a river or lake and make it difficult for native predatory species such as walleye or pike to see their prey.

Carp can also disrupt the vegetation in these waterways, which in turn can impact other organisms and eventually can even negatively affect the health of the whole entire water system. 

Why am I saying this? Well, it’s because the species is so pervasive that many government bodies will actually encourage you to fish for this species.

By knowing what they eat, you will have a better chance of landing one of these carps. Plus, you usually will get to keep what you catch! Of course, you will have to properly season what you catch simply because there are some who claim that carp has a very bland taste to it, but still, it’s definitely a very rare occasion when you can keep the fruits of your fishing labor.

Fishing Willow Beach – Catch Fish Near Las Vegas

Can You Fish at Willow Beach?

Willow Beach is a long-time classic fishing destination. It’s a part of Lake Mohave on the Colorado River. The black rock canyons are just below Hoover dam and are part of Lake Mead National Park. Its Cold waters are on the north of Lake Mohave.

I’m going to share stuff here that you won’t find anywhere else.

Back in the day, they used to catch huge
rainbow trout out of that little beach. I remember when I was a kid they had a café in by where the
store is. Other Species we caught were Carp, Catfish, and Bass.

Inside the café, we used to go there to eat breakfast in the mornings before we went
fishing or we would go fishing early and come to the café after a couple of hours of fishing.
Inside the café.

The walls were lined with hundreds of pictures of anglers with their catch. These
were all rainbow trout at the time and you had to have a trout over 5 pounds to get on the wall.

There were also taxidermy trout on the walls along with other wildlife that you can find in the
area. If I remember right there was a bighorn ram mount at the front entrance.

Later on, as I grew up in the 80s and 90s the decor changed a little bit. The trout pictures were still on the wall
but the trophy at the front of the store was in a case and it changed to a striped bass.

Around this time striped bass got out of Lake Mead into the river system. They had a heyday eating up
trout.

Because of that, they grew to enormous sizes. I can’t remember exactly but I seem to
recall a striped bass in the display case that was over 60 pounds if I remember right.

This place is the iconic big fish travel destination. There have been people coming here for decades to
catch big fish whether they be trout or striped bass.

I took a 100 person survey on facebook if people like bass fishing best or trout fishing best. Here’s the results.

Can You Swim at willow beach?

There is no swimming allowed at the marina but if you go outside the buoys you can swim. You should be warned that the water is ice cold year around though.


Do I need an Arizona fishing license to fish at Willow Beach?

There is a lot of confusion unless you already know about whether you need a license to fish at
Willow Beach or not.

First of all yes you do need a license to fish at Willow Beach. However, if
you have a Nevada license that will work as well.

It doesn’t matter if you are on a boat or on
the shore as long as you have a Nevada or an Arizona license you are good to go.

Do I need a stamp for Arizona or Nevada at Willow Beach?

The answer is
no. Some time ago they did away with the stamps. Now when you buy the license it is included
with the license if you get it in Nevada or Arizona does not matter.

Do I need a trout stamp at Willow Beach?

Again the answer is no. Back in the day you
used to have to buy a trout stamp but nowadays that is included with the license as well no
matter which state you come from Arizona or Nevada.

alt Martin McElroy Echo Bay 06/17/2021 More Info

Do I need a stamp for a second pole at Willow Beach?

Once again the answer to that is no. It is
included with the license and you can have up to two poles but a maximum number of three hooks
between the two poles.

So I usually fish one pole with one hook in the other pole with two
hooks.
At the end of this article, I will give you a willow beach fishing Report for 2021


Can I catch striped bass at Willow Beach?

The answer is absolutely yes you can.

What are the
recommendations for catching striped bass?

Well you can do it similar to the way you do it in
Lake Mead- bait fishing with anchovies that are frozen.

Cut them in thirds and put them
on a standard worm hook. Use about 1 ounce of weight and toss them out there about as far as
you can get them.

If you are on a boat you can do the same thing or you can go upstream a ways and float down slowly with an anchovy on the hook slightly above the bottom.

Another
recommended way to catch striped bass is using baits that mimic baitfish. Either a lure that
mimics a shad or one that mimics a trout or even bluegill.

These are terrific to use because
the bass and the striped bass love to eat these smaller fish, especially trout.

In case you did not know trout are stocked at Willow Beach every Friday. When this happens it’s like buffet time for
the striped bass. This would be a good time to throw out a swim bait that looks like a trout.

last but not least you can use live bait which you can get from my buddy mike wigglerarmy.com

Can I catch trout at Willow Beach?

Again the answer to this is an astounding yes.

How do you catch trout at Willow Beach? I would suggest the old standby Berkeley power bait and fish
somewhere around the picnic area by the store or the fishing pier over by the hatchery.

Probably the best place to catch trout. Anywhere in between that is able to be official legally is
good as well. If you have a boat or kayak you can go up or downstream and fish The coves. The
trout like to hang out in there as well and you can catch some real big trout at Willow Beach.

Both of my sons have caught 5-pound trout there. In case you were wondering yes this was
recently it was 2020.

My son Lorin at Willow Beach – This Rainbow Trout was caught on a Berkley Mousetail

I know the best do you eat the trout but the hatchery also put out some
very large ones for the anglers to catch. You can also use lures like spinners for trout and even
jerk baits that are semi-small.

Another popular soft bait or mouse tails made by Berkley. Also,
regular old nightcrawlers are a great option. You can get them from my friend mike
wigglerarmy.com

Marshmallows are a good bait for trout as well. Some people use the garlic-flavored ones made
specifically for fishing but the little colorful marshmallows that you put in your hot cocoa do a
nice job too. (the garlic flavored ones give me bad breath)

Lastly, a super very good option is wax worms or mealworms that you can get at
the store at Willow Beach. Keep in mind Arizona time is different than Nevada time most of the
year and the store closes fairly early.

What are some Willow Beach fishing tips?

The first tip I would give you is to try to fish in the off
hours to beat the crowds.

A lot of people go down to Willow Beach If you try to go during a holiday weekend you are
going to fight for elbow room. I would say if you go in the morning during the week that would be
a terrific time.

Ethan Enns fishing on the pier at Willow Beach during an off time when there are not too many crowds

It doesn’t matter if you are going just to kayak or if you are fishing, the middle of
the week is a good time.

Late in the evening is also a good time. Only the most diehard
fisherman are out there after about 10 PM so getting a spot is not so hard except maybe on the
weekends. They do have a very nice fishing pier at Willow Beach and it’s quite large but in the
late summer, there’s a lot of grass around the pier so it’s kind of difficult to fish.

If you are going to fish the pier in the late summer you are going to want some sort of gear that you can cast out
very far. This will get you out past the grass and give you a better chance of getting a striper.

Mouse tails and wax worms seem to do the best on trout if you can see them. Plop one of these
baits in front of them and you can usually get their attention with it especially the wax worms
and regular worms.

The best piece of advice I can give you if you want to catch trout is to go
there on Friday morning. Prepare for heavy traffic along the shore because a lot of people know
that the department of wildlife stocks Willow Beach at the ramp on Friday mornings at about eight.

Watch out for the no fishing signs. You need to stay in the designated fishing areas which are a
little ways away from the docs. If you are fishing for striped bass this is a good time too.
Because the stripers come in to eat the trout. Putting something out there that looks like a trout
is a good bet during this time.

Willow Beach trout stocking schedule 2021

All I can tell you is that they stock Willow Beach at about 8:00 AM every Friday morning. There
are occasions when that schedule is changed for example during Covid lockdowns they did not
stock for quite a long time.

There may be other reasons why they don’t stock for example if it is
a holiday. Other than that they are pretty regular about it.

The Top 5 Bass Fishing Guides for Lake Kissimmee

Published

on

The Best

Florida Bass Charter–407-821-6101 Captain Tim and his fantastic team specializes in live bait and artificial bait trips. They know every technique that will catch you largemouth bass in Florida. This is not just a job for Captain Tim; this is his life and his passion. He is the best bass Fishing Guide for Lake Kissimmee. He lives to fish, and he enjoys taking vacationers out and sharing his expertise. The crew at Florida Bass Charter are United States Coast Guard certified. They follow all safety measures, and they are ready and willing to teach you all the techniques you need to know to catch largemouth bass in Florida. Give him a call and book your trip now. 

Florida Bass Charter Gettin-er Done

If you are looking to catch trophy bass, you need to visit Kissimmee, Florida. Kissimmee Lake is the third-largest in Florida, offering 35,000+ acres of fantastic angling and stunning scenery. Lake Kissimmee is the largest with the Kissimmee chain of lakes, located 15 miles away from Lake Wales and approximately 40 miles from Orlando, Florida. Forget the amusement parks, museums, and other attractions and book a fishing guide for a day. Go out and have an adventure. Explore the beautiful Florida waters, learn how to fish for the first time, or try to catch a huge trophy bass. 

Lake Kissimmee has slightly warmer water temperatures than some other lakes in this area. Because of this, you can see many largemouth basses. There are many anglers in this area that will fish Kissimmee during summer. With a combination of heat and warmer water temperature, you will find an abundance of largemouth bass. If you can schedule your vacation/fishing trip during the complete moon phase, you can catch bass closer to the shore.  

Fishing on Lake Kissimmee

If you are an experienced angler, a pro, or use a guide, make sure you take advantage of the thick vegetation. All the guides will know this and know where the hot spots are going to be. Kissimmee doesn’t become as crowded as some of the more transparent lakes in Florida because of the heavier vegetation. An ideal hiding place for the Bass in this area; eelgrass, bulrush, and knotgrass. These vegetation types help protect bass, allowing them to grow to Lake Kissimmee’s large sizes. 

One of many highlights for fishing on Lake Kissimmee is catching Bass between 5-8 pounds. Now and then, some anglers can wrangle in a 10+ pound largemouth bass. While out on Lake Kissimmee, keep your eye out for large sections of reed or eelgrass. This is where you can find larger schools hiding out. 

Tips for Fishing on Lake Kissimmee

Fishing on the upper area of the chain of Kissimmee lakes can be a little more challenging. This area is more acidic and has tannin-stained waters. The lower Kissimmee chain has more shallow water and is sensitive to changing weather fronts during colder months. A lot of anglers choose to wade fish. Many boat ramps and fishing camps will grant access to wade fishing. In the Florida lakes, watch out for hydrilla. Hydrilla can make navigating these waters complex, so it is recommended to use a fishing guide if you have never been on Florida’s water.

When fishing on Lake Kissimmee during spring and winter, for best results, use flipping plastic baits or a slow-trolling golden shiner. If you search for largemouth bass during the fall or summer months, your go-to lures will be plastic worms, rattling crankbaits, and jerk baits. You will want to have a good arsenal of lures and other equipment no matter what time of year you go out fishing for largemouth bass. 

Popular lures for Lake Kissimmee 

The type of lure you use will depend on the area you are planning to fish and the kind of fish you plan to catch. I am providing a shortlist below some of the most popular lures for catching Largemouth Bass in Florida, specifically Lake Kissimmee and the surrounding area. 

JerkBait

This type of bait is perfect when fishing around hydrilla or eelgrass that are abundant in Florida lakes. Using your rod tip, you need to perform a complex jerking motion to get through the thick vegetation. Using jerk baits, you want to mimic shad and shiner colors, as this is the type of prey that bass is attracted to. 

jerk bait

Speed Worm

Speed worms are the most popular and most versatile lure that you can use to catch Bass in Florida. You can use the speed worm; use it along with a heavyweight in cover, choose to worm it on the bottom of the lake, swim it back to you, or use it as a top-water lure. 

Swim Bait

This type of bit works exceptionally well around grass and lily pads on Lake Kissimmee. It is effortless to use; rig it up on a lightly weighted swimbait hook, throw it out, & reel it in slow and steady. The fish will go crazy! Make sure you are in or around some vegetation. 

Spinnerbait

With spinnerbait, you can catch trophy-sized bass. All you need to do is find an abundance of baitfish swimming around and toss in a white spinnerbait. Spinnerbait may not catch you the most fish, but it could snag you the biggest Bass of The trip if used correctly on Lake Kissimmee.

Rattletrap

This style of bait is best in the same areas and situations as your jerk bait. The thickness of vegetation will determine how you use a rattletrap; if hydrilla is thick, then you want to throw your rattletrap out and steadily reel it back in. If you are in sparse vegetation, you can do the Yo-Yo technique; bounce your line up and down. 

Lakes in The Kissimmee Chain

The lakes within the Kissimmee chain of lakes range in size from about 200 acres to 44,000 acres. The smaller lakes will, of course, have more limited fishing opportunities. I have included three of the most popular Bass Fishing lakes in the Kissimmee chain below. 

Lake Tohopekaliga

Twenty-two thousand seven hundred acres make up the most famous lake in Florida and the entire country. It is well known for producing more trophy Bass consistently than any other lake. According to Florida Wildlife Commissions’ biologist, for every 10-acres of land, there is one Bass over 10-pounds. Bassmaster Magazine has named Lake Toho “the most consistent lake for both numbers and trophy-sized bass.”

Lake Hatchineha

A top-class bass area, Lake Hatchineha offers gorgeous scenery. This lake is smaller and less known than other lakes in the Kissimmee chain. At only approximately seven thousand acres, Lake Hatchineha is a favorite spot for local anglers. The average depth is only 3-feet, and the deepest area comes in at 8-feet, making it one of the shallowest. Fishing on Lake Hatchineha is best done during the early mornings, evenings, late at night during summer, or in winter months.

Cypress Lake

At Cypress, you cannot only catch your share of largemouth bass, but you also see a variety of wildlife. Alligators, Osprey, and Eagles, among many others. All are living in their natural habitat. Cypress Lake has a record of 18-pound largemouth bass. This part of lake Kissimmee is best fished during the fall months but produces largemouth bass all year round. The locals prefer to slow-troll small jigs, which helps them locate the schools of baitfish.
