Where to find carp?

Carp is one of nature's chosen ones, who gave him as a dowry "five p”. It is characterized by fertility, adapts easily, it is also beautiful, greedy, and is characterized by rapid weight gain. Its consumption values ​​are also valuable.

To, that carp is so widespread is not solely due to its ability to adapt to changing, worse and worse, conditions. The role of generations of fish farmers should also be appreciated here, who, having just selected carps from among the remaining species of fish, appreciating the outstanding features of their nature, they provided them with conditions for unprecedented development. This is also favorable for carp, that in connection with solving the problem of water scarcity, an extensive system of various water reservoirs is created; in this way, the prospect of the rest stretches before this genre, hopeful development.

Where to find carp?

When trying to answer this question, one must refer to theoretical information about the way of life, foraging and the general behavior of the carp at particular time of the year and day. Let's remember, that each organism has its own environmental requirements, in which he is to live and, therefore, choose the positions that best meet his needs. Our knowledge of the carp lifestyle is rich and we all know it, that the calmer ones suit him best, warm, spacious water, providing opportunities for a rich development of natural food.

From an ecological point of view, carp is usually characterized as a fish that is definitely thermophilic, which means, that the intensity of his life activities is greatly influenced by heat relations. Temperature may be considered as the lower limit of carp foraging activity 7-8 °C, beyond the upper boundary - depending on environmental conditions – even 26-28 °C. Below the first and above the second, the carp becomes passive. The concept of a lower limit is valid only in the spring period, when the carp begins to activate after the period of winter lethargy.

However, at the end of autumn, when the water is slowly cooling down, carp are adaptable and need not always stop eating. It is quite common, that the carp takes even at the beginning of winter, under the ice cap. In terms of nutritional requirements, carp is a foodie, and the main ingredient of his food are - under natural conditions – small animal organisms living in the water (zooplankton) and at the bottom (zoobenthos). Its weakness is only the uncompromising requirements as to the conditions, in which it spawns; they come down to the optimal water temperature 18-20 ° C and not silted up, grassy ground. In many waters, these stringent conditions cannot be met. Carp can only be kept there by stocking.

The thermophilic nature of carp can be a valuable clue in its angling activities – starting with searching for fish positions, ending with optimal fishing methods and the most effective lures.
