    I have modified the traditional grits pack by adding some hemp as follows: 18 oz Instant Grits 9 oz Quick Grits 1 ‘Handful’ of Raw Shelled Hemp Seeds 3 oz Strawberry Gelatin Dessert 14.75 oz Creamed Corn To be honest, I have not quantified any improvement provided by the hemp. Carp like the grits pack with & without the hemp.
  2. Sweet corn out of the can is generally pretty weak stuff and is pretty easy to rip off of a hook or a hair. Once, I was fishing next to a Japanese guy who used sweet corn, raw, plucked right off of an ear of corn. Seemed to work for him. I imagine the raw sweet corn is a lot tougher than the canned corn.
  3. Oftentimes, when I prebait, I'll chuck dry corn directly out of the 50 lb bag. Seems to work as well as soaked/boiled corn.
  4. They get big. World record is 232 lbs. http://www.ladbible.com/news/animals-brit-catches-worlds-biggest-carp-in-thailand-weighing-232lbs-20190704
  5. If still available, I'll take the Fox Micron M+ Alarms.

  6. Some folks know how to prepare carp for the table: https://www.joetessplace.com/go/home/ "It's as simple as that. Joe Tess Place began as a neighborhood tavern in the 1930s. The main attraction became the Famous Fish Sandwich itself. Cut carp portions were fried in a skillet, placed in a cookie jar and sold for 15 cents. Ever since, the humble carp has been the driving force behind Joe Tess Place. From its simple beginnings, Joe Tess Place is now a successful family restaurant in the tradition of friendly service and high quality fresh fish products. "
  7. Which is worse? I would vote for shooting the fish with an arrow and throwing it on the bank. That poor fish will die, whereas the hooked & released carp will probably survive just fine. Is there a link to the study referenced? I found a study that's interesting: "Fish cannot feel pain say scientists" https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/science/science-news/9797948/Fish-cannot-feel-pain-say-scientists.html
  8. Some questions/answers re a similar device on Amazon.com: https://www.amazon.com/SAMSFX-Plastic-Environmental-Release-Fishing/dp/B00XHQTOQA Question: 1how are you supposed to put line thru tube with a swival on one end? Answer: The swivel and tube pull out from the feeder body. Pass your main line through the feeder body, through the tube and then tie the swivel at one end. Pull it all tight and the feeder is set. Tie your hook line to the other eye of the swivel and your done By Customer on July 26, 2017 The swivel detaches. You just have to pull hard enough and it will pop out of the plastic tube.
