    I caught a Golden Carp last year at Lake Hodges. Just a big gold fish. The carp are big at Lake Hodges. I see Koreans and Chinese fishing using extremely long fishing rods with no reals on them. I put some posts on youtube. Just search for Lake Hodges Carp Korean Style and you can watch how they walk the fish in using only the long pole. What is your best bait for Carp? Are you getting Golden Carp or Asian Carp (greenish). What is the weight of your biggest carp?

    Oh yeah, that's the way that they do it back in Korea when they fish the ponds, it's pretty cool actually.

    Pretty.. There are some big ones at Hodges, El Capitan too.. Back in the day there were huge ones in the Imperial Valley, they don't get that big any more out there though. Biggest one I ever caught and weighed was 42-9.. There are still some 20-30# class carp out there though

    There used to be some real big ones in the Santee camping lakes back in the 90's from what I remember as well, haven't fished 6 and 7 in a real long time though.
