    Grandpa's Frosted Beer Balls:
    Dumped the box of Frosted Flakes in the bowl and poured some beer in the bowl. Mix and start to make them in to little dough balls. I remember Grandpa consistantly caught big carp using this bait years ago when I was a kid.

    Don't waste the juice from a can of corn or tuna. Pour in freezer bag and add pipe cleaners. Then when you want to use them wrap around hook. Good luck.

    Have you tested those beer balls? Sounds easy enough.

    Never tried the frosted flakes, sounds like it would work though. I have to put in on my list of things to try. Thanks.

    It's always good to catch carp on a homemade bait ... I agree.
    I catch my channels on homemades ..... :smile2:
    But in all honesty, unless they have been fished 'hard' a can, or 2, or 3 !!
    of sweetcorn can't be beat.
    Simple as it sounds ...... as long as the carp are in your swim .... you'll catch 'em
    BUT .... if you really want to see what homemade carp baits are all about, just go to google and type in "boilie recipies" ...... now that will give you some food (sorry) for thought .....
