I am a unexperienced carp fisherman who wants to get better. i fish at belmont lake in long island, its on exit 38 on the southern state parkway. I use egg bagel as bait. I set up 2 rods with 2 hook rigs and a 2-3 oz weight on the end on the rig. I cast out and wait. Some days I would catch 4 to 6 fish and some days i catch nothing. I want to be more consistent and catch bigger fish. The biggest fish I caught at belmount lake was 8 pounds.
