HIT THE RIVER WITH THE BIG BROTHER JAMES IN THE HOPES OF CATCHING SOME COLD WATER CARP. WE BOTH SETUP AND FISHED THE SAME AREA TRYING EVERYTHING FROM WHOLE KERNAL CORN, TO BREAD, TO VANILLLA CARP BAIT WITH MINIMAL SUCCESS. AFTER ALITTLE WHILE WE SWITCHED TO A FRESH BATCH OF SPECIAL PREPERATION BAIT THAT MY BROTHER JAMES HAD MADE. JAMES AND I BOTH ENDED THE AFTERNOON WITH ONE A PIECE. THE FISH WERE THERE BUT VERY PICKY,15-20 FEET OUT FROM SHORE IN 5-7 FEET OF WATER HOLDING REALLY TIGHT TO THE BOTTOM.

DUDE! you were out again man you trully are a fishin machine! my bait for carp is a dough made out of wheaties & coke, they love it! it's hard to keep on the hook though so you'll need a catfish style dough hook & try throwing a handful in as chum they really love this stuff, oh yeah tightline it with a crappie rig or drop-shot rig. I kill em on the Fox & Rock with this method.
