    ya, i've used cut carp quite a bit but haven't since i've relocated back to TN. It's easier for me to get shad or skipjack in TN, so i stick with them. Have had very good success with carp in other places.

    What about silver or common carp. What about the guts? Am very curious as there are an abundance behind Carlyle lake in Ill. Lots of shad too but after cutting up forty shad it gets old quick.

    That stuff is great if you can get your hands on it. I can't catch them around my place but when I used to live up north that was what we used along with bullheads

    steven, i know your question was for blues...the biggest channel i caught was on a filet side of a carp. i have caught some flats on fresh cuts as well. seems to be good bait...and slimy too:lol:

    carp is a very oily meat it should work good.

    carp does work for good bait for channels too. there are some recipes that people use for preparing carp too. i don't know exactly what they are but one that i sort of remember goes like...cut the carp into chunks and put it in a jar full of water. put it aside for a week or so in order to let it sour then use it. its probably not going to smell good but it might catch you some fish!
