Home / Fishing Videos / Carp / CARP FISHING ON THE SURFACE – BIG CARP!


Carp fishing with standard ledgering tactics can often be the best method to catch big carp, but when the weather is hot and the fish are on the surface it’s time to get the floaters out and catch them off the top.

    • Carl and Alex Fishing

      +Matt Hodges 9ft 1.75lb scope rod. :) for so thing a bit tougher for fishing further out a 10ft 2.75 would be better though!

  35. great video as usual lads. a quick question, I also use Vaseline when surface fishing but I'm not sure how often to put it on? at the moment I add it every 4-5 casts.

    • Carl and Alex Fishing

      We normally add it at the beginning of the session and then maybe top it up after a fish if we catch one. If your line is sinking it may be due to the line being a sinking variety rather than a floating monofilament like ZigFlo.

    • cheers lads I do always use mono hooklength for surface fishing was just curious as to how often you add Vaseline to the line as I sometimes fish large distances and find it hard to see the lone presentation. thankyou for your advice, tight lines fellas !!

  36. Love the vids guys keep it up

  37. Well done for 40k πŸ‘πŸ‘

  38. can you do a setup video

  39. When i put line on ma daiwa ss 2600 it cones from the bottom up and when i see yours it doesn't look like it dose it Dose yours do the same and i just cant see it ? Plz could you reply and let me no thanks big fan of you both keep up the good work

  40. Interested in starting my own channel totally inspired what camera should I buy ?

    • Carl and Alex Fishing

      A GoPro is quite a good place to start, quite reliable and have alot of uses, underwater, chest mount, head mount, even put it on your rod whilst you fish… If you have more budget take a look at something like the Canon 650D :)

    • Carl and Alex Fishing

      +Ruben Olinga Nash Scope rods for most of our carp fishing, in this particular video we were using the 9ft 1.75lb which are lovely for floater fishing. We use the 3lb ones for standard ledger fishing though. :) hope that helps!

  49. Awesome vid! Those carp are impressive! Gonna borrow your techniques here in the USA.

    • Carl and Alex Fishing

      YES! So happy to hear someone is trying it in the USA! You have lots of incredible water to fish for carp in! I think most people use Pac Bait and corn over in the US. Best of luck to you!!!

    • Thanks mate. Just watched your fishing across the pond video from back in 2015. Pretty interesting how UK carp don't seem to like pack bait as much. Our fish go crazy for it! :-)

    • Carl and Alex Fishing

      Yeah, strange! Hope you do good!!! :)

  50. great video,I stopped fishing static and only fish at the surface ore with a little float and corn,you see much more and learn a hole lot more!keep up the enthusiasm!!

  51. Can someone tell me the name of the reels they use plz

  52. BedworthFisherman

    I normally use dish soap/washing up liquid on my line to make it float
