    I have a small pond near my home. Have caught two carp out of it. Used
    corn out of the can. But the last two times i have fished it i have not got a bite. I have used Wheaties and strawberry pop with no luck. Will try the
    grits and corn. Should i use a heavy weight or as little as i can get by with.

    Thanks and God bless

    If you dont have any luck, try a nightcrawler. Ive caught alot of big carp on nightcrawlers.

    A lot of different factors go into what rigging will work for you. I usually use a fixed rig with grits, meaning the weight does not move freely, or I use a sliding bolt rig, which lets the weight move a few inches before stopping, which scares the fish causing it to bolt and setting the hook into the lip. If all else fails turn to bread, it is my go to if all else fails, and I have yet to see a carp in a pond reject bred presented properly.

    Try giving some free bait every day if you can.It doesn,t matter what it is,as long as you use the same thing when you go fish for them.If theres not that many in the pond,they,ll probaly avoid what they get hooked on after a couple times.Try switching up on them.Also ,I agree with the advice on using a crawler sometimes,it,s one of their natural foods.Hope this helps.I,d use as little weight as possible in a pond.Congrats on your carp-nice picture.
