Bowkil, I always used the cheapest canned corn I could find and fill a hook up with it. You can also bait the spot you want to catch him by dumping 4-5 cans there and coming back in about 30-60 minutes. This is how I got all three of my kids interested in fishing when they were young. It works.:)

It may be a grass carp, which would mean the bugger will be hard to catch.

Corn's the way to go for common carp.

by the way...I bet it is a grass carp so catching him may be really hard. You might try a long handled net or a throw net...assuming that's legal

You could always find a female carp and doll her up in a real provocative carp sexy suit. Throw it in the spot with the corn, come back three days later and he'll JUMP OUT OF THE WATER into your arms wanting rescued cause he's sick of listening to how he never cleans up the nest. How He needs to stay home and not go to the Krusty Krab with the guys, and how she feels he's just not committed to a real relationship.................

Oh! I'm sorry was that outloud?:whip:

Maybe just the corn and bread dough balls. :bangin:
