Typical common carp landed at Trow Pool (there're also mirror, ghost and leather carp). Carp like Trow because of its mud-bottom, quiet and heavily weeded still water. It is also a small water and so the carp will eventually come across your bait, but the 64 dollar question is will they take it?

Carp feed mainly at night, but will take bait in the daytime if it looks appetising. Use barbless hooks and line greater than 8 lb. See a short carp video.
