  • I've been fishing for carp the past few days using corn for bait. I heard that put vanilla extract on the corn helps attract fis

    I've been fishing for carp the past few days using corn for bait. I heard that put vanilla extract on the corn helps attract fish. Is there any other "home made" recipes that you know of?

    When making your own bait, consider using one base, one liquid, and up to three attractants...The best approach is to take from each category...
    Bases-This is the stuff that adds volume to the bait.
    1) Cereal. Popular cereals include sugar corn puffs, wheat flakes, corn flakes.
    2) Corn Meal-A great base. Actually the corn is a form of attractant.
    3) Flour-the powder form or bread products
    4) Instant mashed potatoes - This is found in dry form in a box.
    Attractants - There are many to choose from...
    1) Flavored gelatin powder - popular flavors are cherry and strawberry.
    2) Canned corn or canned cream corn - It seems that carp like corn or any corn products.
    3) Frozen or fresh corn kernels-same as canned corn. Sometimes just using the kernels on the hook is all you need to catch the big one.
    4) Sugar-Carp likes the sweet stuff.
    5) Vanilla extract -smells good to humans. Carp must like the smell also.
    6) Marshmallows - found in store bought bait, must be good.-can add a little buoyancy to the bait.
    Liquids -not many but essential to keeping all the ingredients together.
    1) Water. This is the most popular liquid.
    2) Juices from canned corn.
    3) Sodas!!Strawberry or grape soda. Carp must have a sweet tooth.
    Remember to write down every measurement and ingredients because a depressing realization is that you are catching your limit of carp and dont know how to remake the bait!!!

                    To answer Rock Rat's question, I would say that Joe Biden would be the least objectionable candidate of the Democratic group.
