    I have tried several dough ball mixtures for carp and very seldom find the carp hitting the dough bait more than good old reliable CORN. Best carp bait I have found.

    I have used it a little. What I have found to work best is Rice and Ketchup.

    I actually make a sour corn for carp, and have also used the canned corn. Both really brings them calling.

    I've seen where people boil corn in water, vanilla extract, sugar, and kool-aid (strawberry flavor I beleive) and used that to catch carp. I prefer to cut open a can, chum a little, bait my hook, and hang on!

    I've always used kernel corn doused heavily with garlic salt & then "marinated" over night.

    Wow, I loved fishing for carp in the spring when I lived in Ohio. The carp would be in the small creeks and I would sight-fish for them. Cast out a couple Niblets on a short-shanked hook and watch the fish move up to them. The carp could get within 8-10 inches of the corn and then just suck the corn in without moving. I would always use a light spinning rod and a couple teeny split shot. The water would be so clear, I could see the gold of the corn and when it disappeared, I knew it was time to set the hook.

    SOmetimes we would use McDonald's french fries too.

    OK shhhhhh. heres my secret carp bait lol. Take wheaties and ground em up to powder, mix with strawberry pop until you get a dough bait, and ball it up on a small treble hook...Works pretty good...Its not really my secret, and corn is cheaper. lol:lol: I also use Ol Roy Lean dogfood, it is a loop, just put several pieces on a small hook.

    I have never been able to get them to bite corn but I take a peice of bread and put a few kernals of corn in it and mash it up real tight around the hook.

    corn is great as a bait and if you get hungry it does not taste too bad cold

    I have had good success using corn. Especially if you can drop a couple burlap sacks into the water the day before. It takes about five second to catch one then. I have heard that even using the larger carp as cut bait works will for blues and flatheads.

    Corn works great!!
