I have tried just about every carp recipe during just about every seaon of the year and they simply dont work for me. I hear alot of experience fishermen tell me wheaties and strawberry soda. Ive tried it, and it simply doesnt work for me. So last year I went back to the basics and caught several blues and channels and a some nice carp on just plain flour tortillas. A few weeks back I tried again, and caught a 7# carp which was later used for cut bait. I again went with tortillas last friday, and hooked into another carp around 5-7#'s but broke my line. Im planning on getting a few carp to use as cutbait during the winter as these seem to be the best bait for me during the winter. Anyways just thought id let everyone know that sometimes the simpler stuff works better. I watch people catch carp on all these recipes and they just wont work for me. The way I use the tortilla is use a standard J hook. Tear off a section of the tortilla and roll it like you would roll carpet. Then hook the hook 1 time through the tortilla which should go through severla layers. Cast it out and leave it sitting about 10 minutes. Usually after 10 minutes its going to have fallen off or been picked off and you didnt notice.
