How do you prepare chick peas to use them as a carp bait? Thanks :)

Simple! :)

1.) Put dried Chick Peas in saucepan and cover with Spring Water (not tap water).
2.) Add whatever kind of flavoring you like....usually just a little bit will do it. I will normally add about 2 TBS of vanilla when I'm using vanilla.
3.) Bring to a boil and boil for 4 mins. Turn off.....take off heat.....and let sit in that "brine" for 24 hrs. They will be ready to use then. :)

Try boiling for 5 mins in tomato soup with a bunch of hot sauce- the hottest you can find. Let sit overnight. Rig on a hair.

Chick peas are a fantastic bait. Very versatile Pick your flavor- boil for just a bit and let sit overnight.

You can also freeze the left overs. Got this info from cwcarper. Anyways, I made some killer chick peas. I soaked mine in nothing but banana extract. I believe it was for a couple days. Just soft enough to poke a needle through them. They are VERY potent. Mixed a little pianapple oil with them the last day. THE CATKING !!!

Now wouldn't the "Country" name be chick pea? I know what a Garbanzo bean is and I'm about as country as they come. Never heard of a chick pea though. Jeeze crapking, I mean catking, cut a brother some slack ;) ;) :p :D
