    What is the best kind of bait to use for common carp in illinois creeks and streams

    worms work best in my opinion. you can also use bread, cheese, and small jigs. if they are close to the bank you could use a fly that imitates a crayfish or a berry. also if you fish in a spot where people feed the fish and ducks a lot, definitely go with the bread. also there is this stuff they sell at farm and fleet that is labeled "carp bait" so I am guessing that would work.

      Corn is what I found to be the best bait for carp.

        I have always used corn. But having said that, I have never been able to get one.

          Bread or corn is what I use and worms work well too. If their biting they will bite anything.

              small game sportsman,
              You better switch to a bread ball or hot dog to improve your luck.
