A couple baits to try

Recommended Posts

Going to try Polenta. It's the size of a tube of sausage, only costs a dollar, and is made with Yellow Corn Meal. As much as Carp like corn, it may be another good bait, and cut up into cubes, it could last for most of a days fishing. It's about the same thing as Mush. Firm enough to put on a hook, and soft enough to break up on the hookset, it probably takes well to flavorings also.

Carp really loves beans where  I fish, so bean curd, ala TOFU, just might get a shot too. Finally! A use for that horrid stuff! Might as well throw those Veggie Weenies in along with them. It's the same stuff, and tastes just as bad, but the fish might just like it.

Polenta is Italian corn meal.

Good idea!  Wonder how cooked beans would do in spod mix?  Cook with a bit of flavor in the water?

beans work great in spod mixes. Polenta, Quinoa, Couscous all work great as well. If it takes good to us, carp will generally root around and find it.

This is the very best part of carp fishing. Grocery stores are everywhere, and there are potential baits in almost every isle.
