    I have caught quite a few nice blues on asian carp. I think asian carp is a good bait for blues.

    They easy to get and its tough so it stays on a hook. I just chunk em in 2 inch cubes or 2X8 inch strips. I catch alot of nice ones on fresh bloody bighead chunks. Mo has a kill reg on em, one jumps in the boat put it to death lol. If you can get small ones 10 inches and under they make great whole baits just slash and fish. Most states have a regulation you cant use em as live bait, to much of a chanch of spreaden em.

    I bowfish for them quite a bit and when we shoot the first one we cut him and put him on the hooks. Usually run a couple rods off the back of the boat while drifting downriver shooting carp. Almost always catch a nice mess of blues without hardly trying
