BAIT AND THE CARP
Baits for carp are numerous. Beside the various forms in which bread can be used (with or without honey), lobworms, boiled potatoes, redworms, maggots, slugs, snails, freshwater mussels, small fish, wasp grubs, boiled beans and nuts, peas, banana, macaroni, shrimps, prawns, cake, caterpillars, congealed blood and of course boilies.
It is clear after fishing many waters, that fish have local preferences, and their preferences can change during the season.
For instance, one lake I used to fish would always produce lots of action on whole new potato. This would only last for the first few weeks of the season, then they would eat boilies or trout pellet paste. Later in the season during the colder months nuts were far more productive.
