I am about to go on a week long boat vacation with my wife and our 36' boat on the upper Cheasapeake bay. I have never fished for carp in the US. I immigrated to the US 11 years ago and have not fished a lot in America. Fishing in the US is diferent than how I used to fish in Holland. Mainly fixed rod and using floats. (Bobbers)

Anyway, I am going to give carp fishing a try since I am able to spend some hours fishing on the Sassafras, Failry creek and still pond rivers while we are anchored out. I have a fishing license for the boat so I am covered. Sealed

To be honest I have never successfully fished for carp before, so this will be a completely new experience. I have all the necessary tackle, rig, rod and instructions and I am looking forward to come back with a detailed report on my findings.

It would be great if I catch some carp.

Fishing starts on Friday evening June 23rd, assuming I have time and will not be side tracked by Mojitos, Margaritas or any other drink when we arrive at a new anchorage on the sassafras.(Can't wait to do nothing) Smile

If anyone has any tips before I leave on this Friday you can post them here or e-mail me @ This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

I'll update the blog after we return on the 29th.
