Carp is a common name for several freshwater fish species in the Cyprinid family. All species of carp are native to either Europe or Asia. They can be found in across North America but are considered an invasive species. While consider an invasive species, many anglers in North America love to target carp. Even some states' departments in the United States see carp as a gamefish.
The three most popular species of carp sought out by anglers in North America are the black carp (Mylopharyngodon piceus), the common carp (Cyprinus carpio) and the grass carp (Ctenopharyngodon idella). Carp are bottom feeders, so you'll want to use a fishing rig that puts your bait on or near the bottom. Many anglers swear by canned corn and dough balls for bait.
