has anyone managed to do this? if so how did you go about getting setup.

i fish for carp @ a local lake, & would love to get some shots of them leaving the water. i know i am probably better off waiting for the summer months when they jump more often.

any tips will be a great help.

I used to occasionally catch them that way. And to be honest, I abandoned photographing them thirty years ago. Not because I didn't, but I shoot now for birds, and rarely pay attention.

However, early in the morning and the evening are the best times. Carp often jump in a series of two leaps. But one out of ten times, they will jump three times. All jumps being about five to ten feet apart. If you can set yourself up for that THIRD jump, and have patience, you'll score.
