How To Do The Fishing For Carp

Running node-Follow step by step how to set up your equipment on fishing of carp cabeçudas.

Hello guys

Many anglers and friends ask much as do the run, mostly in fishing of carp cabeçudas. I will try to explain the details of this equipment with illustrations of the fishingtur, pictures, video and material collected on the net.

Bighead Carp

The carp is a freshwater fish of Chinese origin, sired by laboratories fish farmers.

Feed on Phyto-plankton (micro algae), where in fishing grounds is hooked on the surface with buoys and specific equipment such as shower and a good sweet mass.

The specimens caught in fisheries vary in size, where there are reports of a’ Scrip even.

The interesting carp fisheries loggerhead is patience, a virtue that the fisherman has to have, because there are days when you didn’t Slingshot no copy, even with all your experience. And that’s what makes this even more fishing fascinate because you never know the result of your pescria. As there are days when you hit the mass, the height of the shower, and ends up biting 12. … 15 copies. That’s it, carp fishery is a fishery of patience and quality.


You should use a 2 Poles the 4mts, depending on the fishery and the size of the Lake, be of mid-class to heavy depending on the pitches with heavy baits.

Reels or reels entailing line 0, 40 mm because for that fight is not carp because they never picked up a nervous g when a POPs easily finer lines.

We can’t compare the CARP with tambas and pirararas. …

Another very important fact in loggerhead fishing is the cramp that cannot be overstated, because the mouth of the carp is very fragile, so we must not USE the pliers in carp.

Small hooks and sharp maruseigo of type number 12 to 18 or 1/0 the 2/0 are the most employees.

The best baits are the masses, the famous can be homemade, secret recipes of fisherman or the industrialized as the masses Duck that has great results.

Fishing tips

You don’t want to lose a big head? So have patience to get her out of the water, work well the fish and let loose, because friction in a race she could easily blow the line or tear your mouth dropping the hook.

Mounting of the equipment

The set of Bighead carp is composed of the following items:

-2 stick the 4mts
-Reel or spool with line 0, 40 mm
-Lead moored
-Showerhead (spring with 5 hooks)

Below is the sequential scheme of assembling the equipment.

Mount for carp

So, first we put the lead loose in line of the reel. The first beads serves to stop the run. The loggerhead buoy. The second bead and finally the showerhead.
Note: Taking the showerhead, the rest is all loose on the line.

Running Node

It serves for us that we change the depth to which we make our dough in the water. We did it with him moves him to leave more mass on the surface or deeper.

To make the node, you will have to use another line to your clothing.

-Take a piece of about 15 cm of another line and allow parallel line of the reel.
-With the piece of loose thread make a ring holding the line on the reel in your base.
-Now you will pass within this ring one end of the loose thread, involving the reel together.
Pull both ends of the loose thread and close the node.
-Cut the excess thread and your knot is ready.

Running node

I especially use early snap, so I can change it easier the showerhead. The beads 2 serves to stop the run, the beads 1 beads 2 and hangs on the buoy stand on 2 beads, so when the fish take the bait, he leads the float down.

Set for carp

Below is a diagram of how it is assembled this set under water.

When the fish get the hook, bead 1 run, run, the buoy 2 beads run to beat on the node where this crashes the set and Oh yeah, everything sinks.

There is only hook and pose for the photo.

  1. John on May 25th, 2010

I would like to know if the process for carp fishing in pond is the same made in rivers.

  1. Henry on August 9th, 2010

Hello, Guys! Congratulations for the articles! Well, I wonder if there is some way to use the node running on smart buoys, those that lie when mass ends; Yes, they have a steel cable that passes through the middle of it, showing a tip that goes to stick and the other end (opposite) the showerhead. It would be a lot easier to adjust the depth of the mass. Oh, as a general rule, how deep do carp loggerhead are reeled in? 15 cm?Waiting, very grateful!

  1. Antonio marcos subtle zanella in August 23rd, 2010

I pulled out my already cabesuda of 27 kg carp and this winter I don’t get any more normal at that time and they do not eat?

  1. José on October 15th, 2010

Very good, but I would like to know if after I put everything (misangas, node, lead, ball and shower) on line I could still take all this so I could keep my equipment (reel, Rod) without having to make any cuts in line or break up any node.
VLW, best site about fishing I know!!

  1. Leandro on May 25th, 2011

I talk about my fishing of loggerhead held on 22.05.11 in pesk ville …
I did exactly as the explanations of vcs, the knot, the equipment, the dough was branded q Mouth peanut with fruit (good?), the time the owner of pesq. said two feet would be fine, anyway, can’t say q was a fishery bad pq vcs knows until a fishery is good … lol, I arrived in the pesq. around 10:00, I set up the equipment and threw not far away from the other buoys of other fishermen, next to me were a Mr and your grandson, they hurled 6 buoys with fried small one near the other, +-15 MTS. of the ravine closer q my, they they more than 10 carp throughout the day, but didn’t leave a shoemaker because I had a some 3 kg, I like it, but they’re the questions:
Because you and your grandson they several and I only one? q is it’s because of the amount of fried in the same place so sevando. My dough was not good? the height of two feet was wrong? (it was the time q snagged) then moved to 0.80 cm and nothing.
await response and in advance thank you! Hug.
