Fellow Carpfishermen, As you all know, I will be returning back to Ohio in 10 days. I am looking forward to fishing for carp again in Ohio waters and hoping to meet some fellow anglers who share the passion of great fishing and great times. I was camping one weekend down in Austin, TX one weekend, and saw a fisherman catching some carp. As a fisherman, I watched curiously as I did for the next few weeks. Finally after seeing this guy catch so many carp and so many carp with size to them, I just had to stop and talk. As the guy and I got to talking, I noticed his bait and asked him what he was using. To my surprise it's three common ingredients that I would have never guess would be used to catch carp. Honestly, I wasn't going to share this recipe until after I checked to see if it worked up there (didn't wanna make a fool of myself) but I thought i'd share it with ya to see if maybe you guys could test it for me before I get home. CarpMan, my fishing buddy will probably be pissed that I shared it but hopefully he'll get over it....haha. (1) Box of Wheaties (1) 2 Liter Bottle of Big Red (1) Bottle Vanilla Extract Mix these three ingredients until they form into one big nice doughball. If it gets too dry, add either more vanilla or more Big Red and if it gets too soggy, just add more wheaties. After watching that guy catch carp on this bait and after catching a 30 lb carp on this bait myself, I cannot complain about it. It should be enough to last 2 or 3 fishing trips unless you use some to chum. But if it doesn't work, I am sorry. It has worked many times for me in Texas and I know i'll use it in Ohio as well. This is my little secret I am sharing with you guys. Hopefully it brings results and if not, I apologize but if it brings good things - you can thank me later. I hope you all take it easy and I hope to catch you all on the lakes as soon as I make it home. Carp - The other white meat!!!
