Took a ride to kankakee yesterday and the carp were jumping all around the creek mouth by rock creek. I have always wondered why they do this and even after several internet searches I never get a clear understanding. Does anyone know why they jump and surface so much and does this improve your chances of catching them on the fly?

it will not increase your chances at all. the carp you want to target are tailing carp, those are feeding fish and will give you the best chance of a hook up. there is a good book called "carp on the fly" check it out , it will give you all the info you want.

I have heard a lot of people call carp the bone fish of the midwest/great lakes. These fish are hard to catch and battle when caught. However, no one keeps them for eating. Just like bonefish. They too are hard to catch and fight like heck.
