Hey. Ive seen these grass carp along the edge of a pond near my house.  I hear they're fun to catch.  Ive tried regular carp bait with no luck.  Any suggestions on what kind of bait to use?

I've caught alot with bread balls when they are schooled up feeding on the bottom.

i don't know where you are located, but here in florida the BEST carpbait is a ficus berry. they are very difficult to cast, but carp can't resist them.

You can't go wrong with bread.  Throw a bunch out first to chum and just include in that bunch of bread your piece with a hook in it.

Sweet corn works just as well.

Just don't chum it beacuse it doesn't digest and smaller fish can't pass it.  A fish with a stomach full of corn will starve to death.

my personal favorite is taking my hoyt compound bow out with a fish outrig on it and shoot them.  Its always a fight, but that probably won't go over well since it sounds like a community pond

The bow and arrow thing seems pretty cool.  I read an article about it, great way to get rid of a nuisance fish.

I think you gotta use different baits other than bread and corn to catch grass carp.

I use bread and corn all the time but the carp i catch are either common carp or koi carp.

I don't know how well this stuff works on Carp because i have yet to go carp fishing. But I bought Berkley Powerbait carp doughballs in a Natural scent, (which is green) I know the blue gill love it because i tried a small piece of it on a hook and chummed with it a ltitle, and the gills come up and blast it. So fish like it...is it a productive carp bait...I dunno

I have always heard that carp will feed on mulberrys, and if you can keep a berry on your hook you can catch good ones.

Grass carp are an entirely different animal and require different baits than the common carp.

What types of vegetation are around the pond?  Trees, fruit-bearing plants, etc?

By far the best bait that I have found for grass carp that you can see is a Jitterbug. Grass carp love cicadas which is what a jitterbug looks like.
