bait is pretty simple, corn and dough balls.... tackle well you can either bottom fish with a sliding sinker and size 6-8 hook or float fish along the edge of the grass with small sensitive floats and tiny splitties..again 6-8 hooks... the bite on the float can be tough... lots of little fish will peck at it bobbing your float, dont set on that. wait for the carp to swim away with it.... your float will start to move as it swims... set now.

This prob wont work everywhere, but back home i used to use a floating crust, a bit of bread stuck to my hook with no splitshot between the waggler and the hook, used to be able to see them swim up and suck it off the surface, this was with big 30+ Mirror carp in the south of England so like i say may not work everywhere but give it a shot. Oh yeah, watch out you don't catch any ducks that way.....lol.

There was a cool article about fly fishing for carp I think it was in BC Outdoors last summer but I could be wrong, it sounded like a real art catching them on the fly but a hell of a payoff if you get one! I also heard of guys using smoked oysters as bait back in ontario!

How big are the carp you are hoping to catch

In Ladner there are a couple of sloughs which have easily caught carp but most are under 4 lbs

corn or worms on the bottom work great.

Deer lake in Burnaby also has a few monsters lurking around, there are always a few fisherman near the lilypads there away from the crowds

Which slough as I can't seem to find them. I love fishing carp when there's nothin in the rivers as I live in delta so the sloughs are close.

Chillukthan Slough and Green SLough I believe

lots of people fish there in august and september

but you can catch them anytime of the year

Coming from the Richmond side of the tunnel going south take your first exit into Ladner. Drive along River road and at the first set of traffic lights there is one of the sloughs, theres a pump station there.... thats one good spot to try. If you continue driving along river road you will see another slough with a pump station, thats another okay spot

good luck

Thanks for the fishing tips. I haven't caught a carp since I was a kid and that was by accident; I was trying to hook a trout. Many years back I saw two huge carps in Maria Slough. They must have been over two feet long. May be now I'll be able to catch something like that.

Cheers!

The "carp farms" in Northern France raise fish in private lakes than can top 75 lbs. Just search carp fishing in France and you can see pictures of plenty of carp in the 40-70 lb. range!!........Ortho 8)
