    Leroy,it works here,I just use a #6 matzuo syckle hook and one whole kernal on it. I usually use a slipcork and a tiny splitshot [BB] size.

    the way i usually catch em is on a lil chunk of worm on a small hook. i have also used jigs. but worm works the best for me. i usually catch em in creeks.

    MOST LIKLEY ILL MAKE A FEW DIFFERENT TYPES OF CORN.... THE REASON FOR CORN IS IM ON A BUDGET WITH BAIT AND SUCH.. DONT REALLY LIKE PAYING $4 FOR WORMS..... AND THE G-F DONT LIKE WORMS:cowboy:

    ILL MOST LIKLEY ADD SOME SUGAR WITH THE CORN.... IM SURE THEY WILL EAT THEM BUT I WAS WONDERING IF THEY WOULD GO CRAZY OVER THEM :)

    I dig most of my own worms and sometimes will buy a little tub of wax worms and use a small hook with slipcork....works great! Never tried corn except for carp years ago.

    I have used corn a lot and caught a lot of bluegill on it. My boy even caught a channel on corn with a cars fishing pole.

    They'll hit piece's of hot dog's, bologna, pea's, carrots, etc. Where I fish they tend to bunch up and get real competitive with each other. They're fun to catch on ultra lite tackle.

    when using corn thats how i do it.

    however i have better luck on wax worms (NOT meal worms). they work the best out of anything i have used. i catch a lot of chubs, gills, sunfish, crappie, suckers, trout, bass, etc. etc. that way. i even have caught a few small cats while fishing for bait that way.

    oh yeah, if you are using corn. throw a little out there or at least drain the juice in the water and chum a little bit. thats a good way to get on a big carp on light gear. its a blast hooking into a 5lb or bigger fish on 4lb test.

    I've caught 8 1/2" pumpkinseeds with corn, along with around a hundred other small bass and bluegills. Bluegill love the stuff.

    Small piecies of worms, waxis, jigs, flys, anything small basically. LOL. I like fishing them with a slip bobber so i can mess around with different depths. But heck their the easiest thing to catch, ive evn caught them on a bare hook a couple times. LOL Light rod and line with small split shot and a small bobber and u should kill um.
