    Here are the two carp I caught. They don't look very big in the pic but then again they are just 11.7 and 12.5lbs.
    My friend caught a 19lb carp this morning. We have tried grits and rice
    with no luck but they love sweet corn in the can.
    Will be fishing a new pond in the morning will let you know how things go.

    God Bless

    Try soaking some dried field corn for about 5 days. Drain it, put it someplace warm and dark for 1.5 to 2 days so it germinates. Soon as you start seeing sprouts, boil it for about 30 minutes.

    When its done it will smell just about like sweet corn boiling, only a bit sweeter, with a touch of malt flavor.

    After it cools you can fish it just like that, small hook through the germ and it should stay on much better than canned or sweet corn.

    Or, you can subdivide it and try flavors.
    Anise
    Molasses
    Maple syrup
    Pineapple
    Strawberry jello

    It will be bigger, firmer, and easier to work with than sweetcorn. Smaller fish won't be able to pick it off the hook, as it has a hard shell. And the carp will love it.

    I use smaller hooks when fishing kernel corn, #6's or #4s.
    I'll go to #4's or #2's for fishing doughballs, boilies or steamies.

    Good luck and tight lines!

    Let it soak in the flavors for a couple of days before fishing it. It will be bigger, firmer, and easier to work with than sweetcorn. Smaller fish won't be able to pick it off the hook, as it has a hard shell. And the carp will love it.
