    the best bait i have used for carps is wheaties, yep straight wheaties i have been a avid carp fisherman for years and i find that they will hit the wheaties doughball when they will hit nothing else.
    first sneak one of mama's dish towels and lay it out flat and take 3 handfulls of wheaties and crush them in your hand and place in the center of the rag, fold the rag up around the wheaties and simply dip the rag into the water where you are fishing for 5 or 10 seconds to get em good and wet and then wring out the rag with the wheaties in it and then open to rag and start working the dough ball until it sticks together, almost the consistancy of rubber, and happy fishing.
    the reason i said dip it into the water you are fishing in is because i have made my dough ball at home and took it to the river to fish and got very few bites, so then i decided to try another dough ball that i made with the water from the river and started catching alot more fish, i don't know if it is something to do with the smell of the water or the chlorine that is in the home water i have no clue.........Mike

    I dont fish for carp alot but I agree atleast when fishing on the rivers just plain old wheatie ball seems to work just as good as anything else I always keep a box in the back of my truck just in case the cats arent biting.I have caught a few channels on wheatie also before.

    Ok guys here's my bait for carp since I was a kid.
    Store bought corn tortillas make sure you toast em, then cut into strips about 1/2 inch by 2 1/2 inches. Make sure you toast them.
    the rest of the bag jsut use to chum the water.
    Cost of one small bag is $0.99 should not break the bank.

    My dad used to make some that worked.:wink:

    1 cup plain flour
    1 cup cornmeal
    1 cup sugar
    mix in 4oz. vanilla flavoring
    add water to make baseball size balls
    then put in rage tie rage around the mix and drop in boiling water
    We would catch carp and a few cats on it.:wink:
    And it smelled good enough to eat.:big_smile:

    Cottonseed meal and flour mixed up with Big Red works really well. Caught many carp,buffalo and cats on this stuff.:wink::big_smile_2::0a20::0a26:
