    Ok I went out to gardner lake today and tried only one and got good bites. I think i was just in too many weeds. I also had my catfish hook on so it may have been too big. I think they are gonna work great!

    8oz semolina flour
    4oz soya flour
    4oz rice flour
    1 packet of strawberry koolaid
    mix dry ingredients

    4 eggs
    red food color
    1/2 tsp vanilla extract

    mix into a dough ball and break off and roll into dime size balls.
    Place them in boiling water for about 3-4 min and place on a towel to dry.
    Bag em up and store in the fridge.
    You can try other flavorings too like flower oils, anise, jello and other flavors of koolaid.
    the longer they are boiled the harder they get. make up some small ones too for bluegill

    How do you cook carp after you catch them?

    Common's right ? If they were asians (which I highly doubt) , then we have a serious problem.

    Not unless someone puts them there. There is no way naturally they could get there.

    Do these bait balls sink or float?

    Sink, I havent really tried them though. I dont think there are too many carp in Gardner Lake. I need to go try at Olathe spillway.
