I was fishin for some carp today when I stumbled upon a part of the canal that had a little waterfall leading into it, and it made the water by it crystal clear :shock: . It was prolly around 4-5 feet deep and I could see the carp just lurking the bottom. I had a slip bobber set about3 feet down with a peice of hot dog. Couldnt catch nothin. Any advice?????
Thanks Nick

Nick--Try somethin other than a hot dog. I'm pretty sure there is a Carp Section in the Forum Dept. Check it out, should be some advice on bait there.

jdisci is right, corn is a great carp bait. Worms and mullberries also work well this time of year.

I use bread balls, corn ,and whole nightcrawlers on the bottom of the lake and they have all produced fish but the bigger ones are on corn and the nightcrawlers. I fish in gages lake alot. I pulled a 5 pounder out of there one time on corn that covered my hook. The best part about using live worms are that you can catch catfish :D .
