Ok, so I usually fish for catfish, but about a month ago I saw a HUGE fish swimming along the top of the water along the bank. At first I didn't know what it could be, I knew it couldn't be a catfish because it looked like a grass carp, I also fish in a small pond so there could only be a few other species. I know now that is a grass carp just by observing it. So I looked up tips on catching carp, and I headed out to the pond. At first I tried night crawlers, no bites. Then I tried this prepared strawberry bait I found at walmart, no bites. Then i tried bread balls, no bites. I even tried small tomatoes, cut bait (bluegill) celery, broccoli, and still, NOTHING! What am I doing wrong? I walk quiet on the bank, I don't talk loudly, and yet I still get nothing!? This is the carp forum, so i'm hoping for some reliable answers. Thanks.
