Question by psychoninja911: Carp fishing bait, secret and not so secret recipes?
Asking again, in serious desperation. I’m at Lake Lavon in Texas… The carp are everywhere and you can see them. I’ve so far had no luck…
Anyway, I’ve tried:
-Strawberry jello with corn soaking in it, use the jello’d corn for bait.
-another mixture I found online with dog food, molasses, wheaties, flour, and more…
These 4 haven’t worked yet at all. I had a turtle take one of the baits… Prying the hook out of his poor little mouth was a blast (sarcasm for real)…
Before I fish, I lightly chum the area with whatever I’m fishing with.
Carp are there, I see them, just not getting any attention after hours and hours of waiting.
–Any bait advice?
–What is pickled corn? Anyone know if this works on Texas common carp (I think that’s what we have, with the orangish fins and all).
–Is there a wrong way to be fishing for them? I’ve tried bottom fishing and with a bobber.
