Allthough the carp have slowley worked thier way throught the broads system, I recon your best bet would be the Yare. As was mentioned earlier, over the years during flood conditions, the stocked gravel pits from the Wensum valley have had "esapees" which in turn have found their way into the Yare.
I had a 20 puonder on a worm, on a bream session a few years ago from the Yare.
Thought I had broken the bream record whilst trying to get it in!!!!! until I saw what it was in my head torch. Only just fitted in my landing net.
I dought very much that you will get any one on here who has had any success with them to give you any specific places to target them. With out this knowledge I am afraid its going to be more blanks than catches.

Good luck anyway

Well good luck then. Let us know how you get on.
No need to be specific, just a general area e.g. the Yare or the Bure is enough.
I have learnt the hard way over the years trying to help people. Give advice on exactly where to fish etc and before long you can't get in yourself or other peoples discracfull behaviour have got areas closed off etc. Thats without the pressure put on the fish themselves as we are now seeing with the poor old pike situation.

Nice to see Jenny Morgan back on here.
A couple of years ago, a guy at Broadlands Holiday Village was telling me he'd been bream fishing from a rowing boat at the top end of Oulton Broad, when he had a 24lb carp.
Over the years I've been smashed by some very fast & powerful fish in the Holiday Village marina which behaved similar to carp I've had in a local pond that is only about 4ft. deep where they can't dive.

Don't forget there are some amazingly large eels in the Broads. If you hook them and you are fishing for carp you may think you have a big 'un on. Eels will take any bait and from personal experience as a carp fisherman of many years ago they fight very similarly. Usually, when you get snapped up by an eel the end of your line is frayed by their teeth. Just check before claiming it was a carp that snapped you up.

Hopefully I will have a dabble this year in an unspecified location for some carp but a big bream or two or three would be appreciated too.

Tight lines everybody.   Smile

He isn't. If you look at his post you'll see it's dated 2011.
