Like @Casting Call said corn works well. I also make doughball from either cornmeal and boiling water (keep dumping cornmeal in and stirring until it forms a dough) or milk and wheat germ (gently bring milk to a boil and add wheat germ until it is a dough. You can add whatever extra flavorings you would like to either. I always add salt, sometimes jello, anise, vanilla, etc.

The dough is extra work but it makes you feel like you are doing something special :) Some days plain old corn will out fish the fanciest doughball.

If you want to catch them on the surface then often a piece of bread will work but you don't get much distance with it. Don't mush the bread if you want it to float. I have caught carp on topwater (fishing for bass) from places where folks feed bread to ducks. Always disappointing when it is not a 15lb bass ripping drag :)

I've had good luck with pieces of hotdogs.
