    one can cheapest brand whole kernel corn..lol..

    nice video, thanks for sharing

    man ive seen more carp bait recepies than i have seen for all other species combined.. some hard core carp guys out there! i did see a guy use something like yours once, only thing he did different was used some corn puffs cereal in the middle, on the hook.. then put a splitshot sinker about 3-4 inches up the line. when the pack bait broke up, the cereal would try to float, but only go up a few inches.. he was catching alot of big carp that night, only 20yds or so from where we were fishing for flatheads..

    PS a 25# flathead WILL bite on a 3# carp head.. lol..

    Just remembered another way i seem to catch ALOT OF CARP!

    all you do is go out and buy a brand new cast net. the more expensive, the better.. everytime you throw it, there will be a carp trying to shred that thing to pieces.. or so it seems.. lol

    yea i fish the same rig.... its a 3 way swivel with a slip sinker before and 2 number 4 hooks with corn pops, you pack the millet around it, cast out and it breaks up as you said. i posted another video on how to make grits for bait aswell!

    INGREDIENTS
    -1 cup of cornmeal
    - 1/4 cup of flour dry mixed
    -1 tablespoon sugar
    -2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    -1 small box of strawberry jello mix
    -1 to 1-1/4 cups of water, more or less, depending how thick you prefer it.


    First boil the water and add the jello mix. Add everything, else, stir until until it meets a doughball consistency and everything is mixed. Let it cool on waxed paper or aluminum foil Refrigerate in a sealed container. Will work well on a #6 or #4 treble doughball hook. I prefer not to use the trebles because it will really tear up a carp's mouth. One of those single hook doughball hooks with the spirally wires on the shank is much better.

    Bream, buffalo, suckers, buffalos, and catfish will also hit this bait.

    I have caught some real big buffalo on cotton seed meal mixed with flour and strawberry soda. I'm sure carp would be attracted to cotton seed meal also. I don't think there a big difference in a carp and a buffalo?

    Heres one I've used for years:

    1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
    1/2 cup all purpose flour
    1 T garlic salt
    1/4 cup maple syrup
    enough water to mix well

    Bring mixture to a simmer and stir well until it forms a big "Ball"
    remove from heat and place ball of bait on a rack to cool till at room temp.
    Knead to get the dry outer crust mixxed well with the rest,Then just pinch of a small amount and form on to hook to use. Keep in a ziplock to prevent drying out,It keeps for quite a while in the fridge.

    I always run some form of pack or method, usually grits or oats for the pack and cracked corn method.

    Usually run a boilie or pop up boilie on a hair, unless the fish are strung out on flavored corn.

    This really catches fish!! 1 gallon zip lock bag--fill 1/2 full with WHOLE WHEAT flour, 1 large pkg. strawberry jello, 1 small jar creamy peanut butter, add all stuff together and mix the peanut butter in from the outside the bag until it it gone, the mix is just heavy no lumps. When you are ready to fish get your hand full of water and add to a corner of the bag and mix together to form a ball keep rolling around until it sets up, this stuff won't come off unless ya beat it off you hook and the carp love ti and so do catties.And it smells wonderful. I also chum with the stuff, throw out small balls all over the place, it seems to always take 20 min., then DO NOT leave your rod unattended!!

    I burn em up by chumming the water with bread.Alot of smaller ponds have people feeding ducks bread ,the bread settles and fish frenzy..When i see the carp surface or all the bread is gone chuck a solitary piece of white bread compacted on a 1/0 hook and hold on...lol so my recipe is enriched white bread..tried potato bread a few times no luck..

    This is a video I made that demonstrates how to make a pack bait in under a minute. I also catch a 25 pound carp in the video

    This is another recipe that is simple to make and I've found to be effective.
