  1. The Apalachicola River up near Chattahoochie holds some nice specimens of common carp. Here's a 19-8 I landed about 10 years ago.
  2. I find field corn (soaked in pond water for 24 hours) to be effective and inexpensive, $12.49 for 50 lb of whole corn at Tractor Supply. https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/product/producers-pride-whole-corn-50-lb?cm_vc=-10005
  3. What result came of this policy proposal? BTW, the above links no longer work.
  4. When I first started using pack, I used soy pack a lot. It does work. I find it more convenient to put any flavor into the corn can while it holds about half of the cream corn, stir it up and then dump it all into the mix.
  5. Could you disclose the brand name for the Panko? A photo of the 8 oz container would help.

    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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. They get big. World record is 232 lbs. http://www.ladbible.com/news/animals-brit-catches-worlds-biggest-carp-in-thailand-weighing-232lbs-20190704
