    Alot of the areas I fish are loaded with carp, but I have only caught one when I was fishing catawba worms one day. Does anyone have a suggestion on what to use for carp bait? I figure I might as well try and catch some.

    If I was you and there are alot of carp around, even if they aint alot of carp around the best bait that I have used here, was getting them canned biscuits and taking the dough and making little balls, and putting them on the hook and they work really good on catching carp good luck to you keep us posted on how you do. Good luck.

    well bo i make my own carp dough out of vanilla, cinnamin, or cherry coke. it works great. oh can corn works great to. i always bait a spot up two or three days before with whole corn iv socked in water for three days. the only problem i have is the right hook size. good luck:smile2:
