Ok. So I loooove carp fishing, especially for the fight they put up. I have experimented with MY HOMEMADE bait and I finally got the best ingredients and directions. To make the bait, you will need: Yellow Corn flour, White Flour, water, sugar, peanut butter, and original shredded wheat cereal. 1. Pour 2 cups of yellow corn flour in a large plastic container. 2.Pour 1 cup of white flour. 3. Add half a cup of sugar. 4. Mix together with a wooden spoon, or your hands. 5. Gradually add water until you can roll the mixture into a ball. 6. Put a pan of water on the stove to boil. 7. Make tiny balls from the mixture, or tiny cubes (preferred) and submerge them in the boiling water. 8. After every five minutes, stir, so the cubes or balls don't stick to the bottom of the pan. Careful not to break them into pieces. 9. After 45-60 minutes of boiling on low heat, remove them from the water. DON'T THROW THE WATER OUT! 10. Cut every piece in half and squeeze/crush them together one by one. Add the water you used to boil the mixture to combine while you are crushing them to soften them a bit, and so they would stick together kinda like Powerbait. 11. After you have done that, add about a full spoon, or two, of peanut butter and mix with your hands. 12. It will soften dramatically so that it feels like it won't resist a cast. 13.When you go to the river/lake, bring the shredded wheat and the soft mixture with you. 14. Combine the shredded wheat with the soft, yellow, mixture until it hardens so that it will stay on the hook well. (If you smell it, it will smell great!) 15. Roll a piece into a small ball onto your hook. 16. Cast and catch! -I will post a picture of the 22 pound carp I caught using this bait. --FYI, Carp fishing on the Columbia really fires up between june and December. Get Fishing! P.S., I wear a size 10 in shoes.
