    If you was going to bait up a hole what would be the best thing to use.

    I use chicken scratch fermented for several days. Works great. You can also use dryed dog food in and onion sack.

    I use range cubes. The problem being, it works best 24 hours after you throw it in and I don't often get that choice.

    I use to fish pay lakes years ago. I fished with a friend and he made the bate. Won a good bit of money but that has been about 23 years ago.
    Now i have a pond and would like to put some carp in it.

    And thanks for all the info from everyone.

    I have just thrown in a couple cans of sweet corn---don't know if this is the best thing or not, but its what I use.

    Good luck.

    Why would you want to bait a hole for carp? I know some of you guys target them,But I can catch all I want,dont want them,unless for bait. Here folks are doin thier dead level best bowshooting,catching them for coyote bait,fertilizer,Man I hate them things. They fight good,But I would rather chase ANY other fish than carp. Heck at leat with bass you can eat them without a mouthfull of bones:wink:

    Sorry If I offended anyone,But I just dont get it

    Go buy some cheap can dog food and take aknife and poke hole in it. Throw abot 5 or 6 cans where you fish about 8 hrs before you fish and they will be there. Works every time

    I almost always chum using whatever bait I'm using. Usually wheaty balls, sweet corn, or bread. I've tried some of those store bought carp baits, but haven't had much success with them.
