How do I catch carp set up and bait
Make a mixture of one cup crushed Wheaties, one cup flour and one cup of Magic Bait Chum (available from Walmart). Mix well dry. Then add Big Red soda a few spoonfuls at a time, mixing well, until a firm dough is formed.
Spool a braided 30 pound test line on your favorite rod and reel. Use a Palomar knot to tie a #8 treble hook to the end of the line. Do not use a weight or swivel - just the hook.
Mold a 3/4 inch diameter ball of the bait on the hook. Work it a few times to make it firm. Cast the bait to a likely spot carefully to avoid slinging the bait off.
Hold on to your rod. Laying the rod down is a good way to spend money. The carp will take the bait and run. Don't horse him. Their mouths are tender and you will pull the hook if you do. Use a net to land your fish. Most carp are lost trying to lift them out of the water.
