    Please post your favorite (not personal if you don't wish) recipes for doughballs for carp fishing here.
     
  2. Here's one of my favorites...an easy and very productive doughbait...

    Combine crushed Wheaties with enough Superior flavoring to make a dough. Use immediately...or if you prefer a texture similar to boilies (like I do)...roll the dough into bait-sized balls and let them air dry to the desired hardness. They'll last at least a year if dried properly...or if you prefer them a bit softer refrigerate. Great for carp and channel catfish...

  4. It's a flavoring used in baked goods, etc. that a lot of carpers use to flavor their baits. It can be purchased online from a few places...mine comes from www.wackerbaits.com. It comes in several different varieties and is fairly cheap compared to many other flavorings/extracts. If you prefer, many other liquids can be used to make the dough...various flavors of pop, corn juice, milk, etc. will all make similar types of baits...just don't add too much liquid.

    One very easy and very effective bait on some waters that I have fished is very very simple.

    White Bread
    Extract (Vanilla, Maple, Anizs etc.)

    Simple open a bottle of extract and place a slice of white bread over the top of it. Flip it upside down really quickly to get just a dab of the extract on the bread. A little is all you need, start mushing the bread slice around for a minute or two until you get a nice firm dough ball. place a little on the hook, make sure the tip of the hook is a little exposed (I normally puch my thumb in there to put an indent into the dough and expose the hooktip) and throw it out there. If that flavor doesn't work try another that is the great thing about this recipe, it is quick to change.

    DaKing,

    I leave the crust on, I started using this recipe while camping up at Pyma. I could see the carp in there but they didn't take any of my other doughbaits. One morning while making French Toast I decided to try it with vanilla, put the bait in the water went back to working on breakfast and the rod went shooting towards the water. This bait has worked well for me when nothing else is working, I find if you use too much extract, the dough won't bind as well and may fall off the hook too little you will get the same results.

    I dont suppose bread will stay on the hook long before coming apart in the water? If so how often do you rebait?

    If you make a nice dough out of it, it will stay on just as long as any other dough baits I have fished with. I just listed that recipe as a nice quick doughbait that anyone can use without having to buy anything special for it. Most of us have the ingredients sitting around the house, carping doesn't have to be all complicated, that is kind of what I like about it.

    Im going to have to do more Carpin this year, had a blast last year in the few times I went out.

    How many guys use chicken livers for carp? I caught 4 in the span of 15-20 minute @ CJ last year. Of corse I was cat fishing, but hey it was still fish. Now if I had been trying to catch Carp I would ahve been skunked. We were fishing just off the parking lots by the dam.

    I've never actually fished chicken livers for them, but have heard of others doing well on them.

  18. Someone, no name or return email, sent me this so I made a batch tonight. I'll let you know how it works after this coming weekend :D

    Bring a 2 cups of water to a boil, reduce the heat to low and stir in a pack of strawberry Jell-O. Add 3 tablespoons of sugar and 3 tablespoon of vanilla extract. Seperatly miix 2 cups of cornmeal and 1 cup of flour. Sprinkle some of the dry mix over the Jell-O. Slowly add more dry-mix. Keep doing that until all the dry-mix is used, stir for 1/2 a minute. When cool, knead it into a ball. Wrap the ball in foil or a big Ziploc bag and store it in the refrigerator, where it’ll keep for a week or so. On the water, simply break off in bait-sizes, knead into little balls and thread them onto the hook

    Hamburger and Wheaties...Mix together until a good ball is formed. Cats love it also. It's a little messy but it works.
