our river is over run with carp and when the cats are slow hooking a 10 pound carp with scratch the itch but the problem is when i target them i cant get them. they feed off the top by the hundreds but you can put bait right infront of there nose and they just swim away. the only time i get them is by accident. i dont want to snag em or shoot them, i want the fight on the rod. do the carp specific dough baits really work. is there a good simple homemade recipe i can make? the damn thing feed in a pcb riddin river you think they would long for a good meal? :confused2: also for the top feeders how do i keep the bait on top? ive tried floating jigs but still goes down 4-6 inches??
