    Most American carp fishermen use sweetcorn to catch carp, but I was told that field corn works much better. Is this true?

    I understand that sweet corn is used straight out of a can that has been cooked. I have not heard of field corn being cooked or canned. I guess it would be possible. Good question.

    Field Corn will work best when allowed to Soak for at least 12hr. and may also be flavored with other sweetners or spices! It can then be used as Pre-Bait or Chum! Additionally, it may also be used as your Hookbait. Baiting an area with it before fishing will get the fish feeding and then use whatever hookbait of choice to catch them. As a Hookbait, it will stay on the hook LONGER than Sweetcorn out of the can!
