    Cut carp is great bait. The blue in my avitar was cut on cut asian carp. I have caught many blues and channles on cut carp. Anything that come from the water you are fishing is good in my opinion.

    What will get 5 to 10 lb blues in the nests? I use cheese and soybean blocks and load up on smaller channels. I can not seem to get the large blues and channel in my nets.

    HELP PLEASE :crazy: :embarassed:

    I find that the smaller carp work a little better, but any of them will catch fish. Good luck if you go Matt.

    Man I just wish I could go. Been working so much at home and at work that I have not had the chance. When the MS river gets right it will be on then.

    Matt, It is still very high. When it drops we are going to be filling the coolers.
