Catch them at Canyon as you would anywhere else. Back in the early 90's we would catch some big one on the crappie doc at cranes mill. We used wheaties and big red.

take a look at this , use the oatmeal recipe(method mix) on the weight and you can start catching . if you dont have hook baits just cut a piece of plastic worm in a bright color , some canned corn etc and put it on a single, small hook . that should get their attention and make them bite .... its here on the pinned thread at the top http://texasfishingforum.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/3797276/Carp-fishing_FAQ_&_Links_(#Post3797276

I fish Canyon occasionally. your best bet is to try and find water in the 12' deep range. Chum it with sweet corn( maybe a can or two) and fish your chum pile. Use a small # 6 circle hook, on a carolina rig and add 2-3 kernels of corn to the hook. Loosen your drag and hold on.
