    Grass carp

    I recently moved and my new "home" lake is 5 minutes from my house. I have caught 16 grass carp so far ranging from 22lbs to the largest one at 49lbs 3ozs. All have been caught using a hair rig with artificial corn. I use a mix of oats, bread, and sweet corn which I ball up on my lead and then throw out several balls after I cast out. I fish in 2-4 ft of water 25-40 ft from shore. All have been caught between 7 and 10:00 in the morning as my fishing time is unfortunately limited.

    Carp of the Month July 2015 $100 BCT Voucher & CAG Membership

    After getting blanked for about 4 hours and feeding more turtles than I care to remember in my usual spot, I switched to a shallow(1 1/2 - 2 feet) area across the lake where I saw a few carp breaching the surface. I hooked this 18lb 10oz common the old fashion way. I used sweet corn on a #4 wide gape hook over a small area baited with more sweet corn and Nash micro pellets. Free line with a small shot a foot or so up the line.
