The body of a crucian carp is rounded with a uniform pattern of small scales that cover.
Color may vary gold bronze. With rounded wings and a cheeky face this species is a favorite among young fishing, although many adults enjoy catching them.
For its size, half of 2 pounds in the UK,(In my opinion) are not hard fighters, and a copy of 5 pounds, It is not uncommon.
The location of these fish can be a problem, but once it found it will provide an excellent sports.

Fish very thick body with a hump, coated fairly large round scales. One dorsal fin with three spiny rays, the third slightly jagged. Usually brown or greenish with lighter golden flanks. It is a close relative of the carp, which closely resembles and with which it is often confused. However, differences between the two species are quite evident: crucian carp has completely devoid lips barbels, and they are also thinner than carp. The body is arcuate and stubby, with the dorsal fin shorter than the other cyprinidae.
Size: With the full development, its length is about 25 cm for an average weight of about 200 g.
Originating in Asia and Central Europe, It appears today in the waters of some thirty countries from all continents. Europe seems to be expanding, and in some areas it is not known whether a native or introduced species, presenting a wide distribution today. Its introduction in peninsular waters must coincide in time with carp, by the seventeenth century.
Currently in Spain, It is widely distributed similarly to the tent, except in the rivers that flow into northwestern-Cantabrian (Galicia, Asturias, Cantabria, Basque Country), and on the southern slopes of Sierra Nevada and Ronda mountains.
In the Community of Madrid it is in the reservoirs of Valmayor, Pedrezuela, Navalmedio, in the pool of El Retiro, and lower reaches of the river Henares, Manzanares, Jarama and Guadarrama.
Because of its exotic character, it seems advisable to limit at least its expansion, favored by the use made of this fish live bait.
Crucian carp populates the same environments that carp, but it is stronger and tougher than these. He prefers shallow water lagoons, and slow-flowing rivers, funds rich in vegetation and soft bottom (although it is also present in mixed funds of sand and fine record, provided they are very herbaceous), generally being in the banks. You can survive under very unfavorable conditions such as water pollution, lack of oxygen and cold winter, that would be lethal to other species.
In the winter, like tents, They remain almost completely buried in mud, limiting their activity long before spring arrives.
Because of its exotic character, it seems advisable to limit at least its expansion.
The crucian carp is omnivorous, and benthic (eats everything and background). It feeds on planktonic organisms (small crustaceans and molluscs), worms, insect larvae, as well as aquatic plants (mainly algae) They found in the mud at the bottom. But his feeding method creates and has created imbalances in the environment, by its high competitiveness for space and food.
Spawning occurs in waters with dense submerged vegetation between the months of May and June, this reference is for guidance as this depends on the conditions of water temperature. Depending on the size of the female can spawn reach a total of between 200.000 Y 400.000 eggs, to deposit attached to aquatic plants shore and also soon be opened depending on the water temperature between 3 Y 8 days. They are peaceful, except during spawning season. Sometimes playback is a bit weird because sometimes they are all females, in this case the play is performed by gimnogénesis, eggs need for development stimulation of sperm from a male of another species. Individuals born are clones of the mother. This information is taken to the letter of the book "Atlas and Red Book of inland fish Spain" Ignacio Doadrio, edited by the Ministry of Environment and CSIC.
Their growth is usually faster, but it is determined by the amount of food that can be extracted from their habitat. Under normal conditions where their food is abundant, You can completely developed in three years.
Herbal funds covered, branches and trunks provide extra protection for the eggs and hatchlings.
7. FISHING METHODS.
Will be found in calm waters, Slow progress or stagnant (ponds, lagoons, streams, canals and rivers). I must say that capture all year, although their catch is most likely from the first warm days of spring until held last autumn to start. The most effective bait for statistic is the famous mass, more specifically used for carp, but also very effective crucian carp: a pellet of wheat flour and / or corn boiled to which is added coloring and flavoring. It can be cocoa, animal fat, Orange juice, bacon, oregano, anise, cinnamon, paté, thyme, garlic clove (the latter very effective). Also beans canned corn or bread crumbs soaked in syrup and earthworms placed in clusters also give very good results.
Fishing gear should be as light and balanced as possible. Medium action rod 2 a 3 m, nylon 0.35 and lead in line (average 50 g), Sliding because the bait must remain static on the merits. Has a small mouth so we will use bait and small food, hooks very small very small (n° 2 O 3). It is embodied in the mass covering all the bait in the most "small” possible, ie the mass being at least bulky possible.
8. Piscicola INTEREST.
In the field of sport fishing It has any interest, apparently the greatest interest is their use as live bait for other species. Then the species "Goldfish” commonly called "goldfish” It is widespread as garden pond fish, Apart from this nothing more
