What baits are good for catching grass carp? the olnly hting of cought them on is bread balls.
I've heard that green beans will work but i've never tried.
Try cherry tomatoes they work very well.
bread bread bread bread.... use bread:wink:
chum the water with it, ball it up on your hook and when they start eating bread off the top... cast your bread ball right in front of them.... none fail method.
some folks I know are very good at catching grass carp... They use spinach
my father in law has caught some big ones 30+ pounds on shrimp.
Great thread with great info. I was wondering the same thing. The local sportsmans club has alot of huge grass carp in it. Would love to catch some for the fun of it, then release them. Im going to try the bread and the spinach.
How do you hook a cherry tomato?
man those things fight like a nut.... I have a dozen in my 3 acre pond and when I mistakenly hook into one OMG what a fight!!!!:crazy:.... and I've tangled with 40lb+ flatheads in river current so I KNOW how to measure a battle... those bad boyz don't play! LOL.... but they will wear themself out nearly to the death if you play them out and don't "horse" them quickly to the bank..... here they have to be hi breds and they're expensive, so I don't catch them on purpose
through the lips:wink:
I use broccoli, corn, & spinach. Never caught a big grass carp, none over 10lbs
I threw some bread in a pond with lots of grass carp and they completely ignored it.
really? thats odd, maybe bad timing? in my lake they'll tear bread up... maybe they want alittle peanut butter and jelly on it:confused2:
I've heard bread most commonly works.Also I knew a guy who used fresh cut grass clippings to catch them.I'm guessing the smell of cut grass makes it easy for them to hone in on.Never caught a grass carp myself but I usually just use sweet corn for regular carp.So I'd say you can rule out using corn for grass carp.
Bread was what we used too. I think the key is chumming the area first, Then use small hooks and an fluorocarbon leader. I know the leader is a over kill for carp( unless carp is your thing) but carp are actually very skittish
I'd use bread, but some dude told me cherries work well.
We use to put some flour, corn meal, and oats in a baggy then use Big Red Soda for the liquid to make a dough bait. It worked good for us. I'd keep the baggy's of dry stuff in my tackle bag and the Big Red in the cooler till needed, Grand kids like Big Red too!
