While practing good "social distancing etiquette" recently, I moved away from bass fishing a pond that was getting a bit crowded, to the adjacent S. Platte river that no one was fishing. I haven't fished rivers for years so I was ill prepared but spent some quality time there anyway. I noticed large carp, much larger than in the ponds that I usually catch, much more active and not "spooked" by my presence or by the lure hitting the water. Same species, common carp, totally different behavior from the pond 50ft away. Any tips for fishing for these river beasts not related to fly fishing? Will corn on a hook on a heavy weight work like it does in the pond where I usually catch them? I assume I would need to use higher test braid with the size and pull of current, plus they just might be stronger fish? I'd like to go back and target them a little better prepared. Might be my first MA carp catch since I seem to be stuck on the 16" - 24" size in the ponds lately. Any carp positive suggestions are welcome and appreciated!
