  1. It would be nice to see a scientific study that proves that unboiled maize is detrimental to carp health. I was under the impression that the crusher teeth deep in a carp's throat could deal effectively with hard food items. Bernie Haines, fishing and guiding on the St Lawrence, used to chum copious amounts of soaked, but not boiled, maize; I was witness to that and Bernie didn't seem to be bothered at all by chumming unboiled maize.

  3. I think Purina庐 AquaMax庐Fingerling Starter 300 is one of the "chows" that work: https://www.purinamills.com/fish-and-aquatics-feed/products/detail/purina-aquamax-fingerling-starter-300
  4. My recollection is that I was fishing about 35-50 yards from shore. My terminal tackle didn't take long to hit bottom.
  5. Ah, the Vincent Swim. Fond memories. On 06-24-2007, I landed a 30-5 common there.
  6. I find that reducing the max dimension to 600 pixels will allow the photo to be accepted by the site.
  7. The Apalachicola River up near Chattahoochie holds some nice specimens of common carp. Here's a 19-8 I landed about 10 years ago.
  8. 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
  9. What result came of this policy proposal? BTW, the above links no longer work.
  10. 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.
