carp bait???

Recommended Posts

Corn man. My buddies and I used to buy one can of corn and catch em like crazy in the mississippi. Put 2 or 3 kernels on a hook, let it sit on the bottom, and you will catch em.

whats a good bait for carp??? :o

Dog crap.  I'm not kidding.  Hell putting on the hook, though.

I've always used corn. But I've seen a lot of carp caught on cereal, such as Wheaties or Bran Flakes. Grab a handful, immerse and squeeze out the excess water until it's the consistency you want.

When I was in highschool we would go catfishing on the cape fear river. We would also pick up some ( what I called ) orange goop. They sell it in white containers with blue lettering at Wal-Mart. I won't say that it worked any better than what the gentleman above listed, but we had some good luck with it. I don't know of any freshwater fish that will ruin a drag better than a 20 some odd  # carp.  They seem like a freshwater tarpon to me.

Shredded wheat, corn, or hot dog buns.

With the shredded wheat and bread, dunk it in water (not too wet) and squeeze out the excess water to form a ball.  If it is too wet, it won't form a ball.  Too dry and it won't stay on the hook.
