    Carp are easy to bait , just dump some canned corn in a spot that doesn't have much current and the next day it will be on like a pot of neck bone.Just bait up with some corn on a hook and as little as weight as possible preferbly a small split shot.good luck

    I use crushed wheaties,big red(creme soda) vanilla and some flour,mix all this til it forms a good dough, pinch off enough to make a ball the size of a quarter roll on to a # 4 hook.
    Hope this helps !!

    To consistently catch carp a baiting campaign is priceless to keep carp coming to an area. Carp are grazers much like cattle. Like us all they are pretty much creatures of habit. Bait an area 3 days (consistantly at the same time of day) with prepared maize. Mine is soaked for 24 hours and then boiled for approximately 30 minutes in a water/corn syrup mix. Let it cool overnight and then it is ready to use. I use maize (feed corn) as this keeps the pan fish away due to size and hardness. The first 2 days use at least 1/2 of a 5 gallon bucket of maize to pre-bait. On the 3rd day only use 1/4 of a 5 gallon bucket. Fish on the 4th day and be prepaired to stay busy for awhile. Hope this helps some.

    I just use plain wheaties doughballs.Just be sure to set the box out of sight or they will jump out and take all your bait.

    I read about the strawberry Jello doughballs in a Field and Stream back in the 1960's. This works, it had been 10 or 15 years since I've used it, but tried it again this summer. Carp love this stuff. I use a single doughball hook about size 2, you know, the type with the coiled wires around it. You could also use a size 4 or size 6 treble hook, but I don't, because they'll really tear up a carp's mouth.

    STRAWBERRY DOUGHBALLS

    Ingredients:

    1 quart water
    1 pack strawberry Jell-O
    1/4 cup sugar
    2 tablespoons vanilla extract
    4 cups cornmeal
    2 cups flour

    In a large bowl mix cornmeal and flour well. Set aside.

    Boil a quart of water, reduce heat to lowest setting. Stir in strawberry Jell-O. Add sugar and vanilla extract.

    Sprinkle a small amount of cornmeal-flour mix over the setting Jell-O. When bubbles appear, add more of the dry mix. Keep doing this until all dry mix is used. Stir until mixed well, then dump ingredents on a sheet of aluminum foil. When cooled, knead this into a ball. Wrap this in a ziplock bag or store in a covered plastic bowl.

    This is the GREATEST BAIT I've ever used and I'm a corn guy for the convenience but this stuff is really great and easy:big_smile:
    1 gallon zip lock bag 1/2 filled with WHOLE WHEAT flour
    1 lg pkg strawberry jello
    1 small jar creamy peanut butter

    add the stuff together and mix until the peanut butter disappears. When you get to the water get a scoop of water in your hand and put into the bag in a corner and form a dough ball, it will be stiff and it don't come off very easy.
    I take a ball of the bait and chum the area to get the smell out and wait. 15 min. get ready and I mean don't leave your rods if you value them:crazy:
    I use a regular hook, you don't need a treble and keep the balls small the seem to take them better and leave slack in your line so you can see the fish bite, always use a carolina rig with this bait---slip sinker barrel swivel leader of line--then your hook, leaving slack in your line lets the carp pick it up and feel nothing but you see it, half the time you nail them when they pick it up and the other half the freight train it---JUST TAKE OFF:wink:
