      Julliens Golden Price Carp

      I saw some pics of Julliens Golden Price Carp online. I'd like to catch one while I'm fishing in Thailand; I particularly like that they are native to Thailand as opposed to introduced. I read that they are a rare catch, though. Any tips on upping my odds?

      In the wild they are rarer than rocking horse shit, this to me is the holy grail of fishing in Thailand. I know where two wild stocks possibly are, but it could take me years.

      Most importantly find a venue that has a good stock of these and talk to the owner & staff.

      Put out a tight bed of groundbait out (bread crumbs/rice flour/small trout pellets/sweetcorn) and fish 3-4 bits of sweetcorn on a hair-rig over the top of this bed. They are shoal fish, so put enough bait in to get the shoal feeding and one will have your bait. This would be my standard plan of attack for any of the carp species in Thailand.

      I'm intrigued... Any fish that presents a challenge piques my interest! Why are they so rare in the wild, Tony? Have they been overfished? Are they easy to catch in a well-stocked lake or still a challenge?

      Three main problems have effected this and most of Thailands fish.

      1 Over fishing

      2 Change in habitat by the building of hydro electric dams. Thailand's fish species breeding cycle is based around the monsoon. They move out of the rivers into feeder streams and flood plains (rice paddies) around the rainy seaseon to breed.

      3 Pollution of the river system due to fertilizers used in farming, in the run off water.

      These are big easilly spooked fish that are certainly a challange where ever they are.

      That is one good-looking fish! Too bad these beauties are so scarce. Tony, it's great to have experts to explain the ecology side - thanks.

      I bet every fishing resort advertises that they might have a Golden Price Carp hiding somewhere in their lagoons.
