Hey all. I've never gone fishing for carp before, and I'm going to try and catch some at kirk pond in Eugene soon. What is everybody's bait of choice?
Thank you very much!HOMEMADE BOILES for carp bait. Carp eat both plant matter and meat. The biggest movement in carp bait is a homemade doughball combined with fish scent and color then boiled to firm it up to help it stay on the hook. Lots of recipes include berry flavored jello. Lots of videos out there on the subject and creative ideas on what to put in them. Some additives I've been wanting to put in the blender to try out in boiles but haven't gotten around to yet are clams, crawdads and goose poop.
That is a huge help! Thank you all very much! It means the world to me. I'm going to try and target them with corn tonight, and I'll try boiles next timeGood lookin' out @Aervax. I just did a quick search of the OFF archives (old threads) regarding boilies. Here is a link to those threads. Reading through those threads will tell you what the local carp clan uses, the "how to's" and what not.
