Thanks Laker for the Kudos. I just use cheep Corn Flakes. Crush them up in my hand, add a little water and form a fist size dough ball. I then pinch off enough to form a smaller ball around the hook and that's it. I have used Big Red instead of water like many do but haven't noticed enough difference to warrant taking a can of pop with me. I also found I must make the dough ball as needed as it will dry out, making it more like a rubber ball too hard to set the hook. We normally chum the area by throwing out some can corn to hopefully draw them into the area. wink

Looking at the past post both here and in the Bluegill section I can see your point on both Catyakker and the Wildman of the Navidad!

Congratulations Catyakker on your record carp! Nice fish. Chuck (BAF): You guys are having a great Carp year! How do you adapt from catching small sunfish using ultralight tackle to giant fish like carp?

Thanks Gitter.
"How do you adapt from catching small sunfish using ultralight tackle to giant fish like carp?"

Ah, the love of just fishing. I really like Ultra Light for both spinning and fly fishing. But, when it comes to targeting fish like Carp over 10 lbs, I kind of like uploading my tackle to medium action rods with at least 10 lb line. Of course, I've been known to trot line, limb line, jug line; and even noodling big Flathead Cats in my younger dumber days up in Oklahoma. loco

The best Carp gear I have are two Shakespeare Spinning Reels with 12 Lb. Test line on two Shakespeare rods, 6 and 7 feet long. Small size 6 Eagle Claw Hooks baited with doe bait or corn. Usually use a sliding weight with a leader. I also chum with a can of plane corn. thumb

I figured your carp gear was a minimal considering what you target! Again you guys catch some very nice fish.
