    Carp will eat almost anything, but canned sweet corn is the most popular bait. It's customary to chum the area you are going to be fishing with some of the corn an hour or two before actually wetting a line, but if you can see the fish, that's probably not necessary. Just put enough of the corn kernels on a hook to cover it, set a bobber so it's suspended just off the bottom, cast it out above the fish, and let it float down past them. If the corn doesn't work, you can try the tried-and-true method of a big hunk of worm on a hook. Good luck!

      some people fly fish for them. use a fly that looks like a berry, a crayfish, or a bug.

        When I was a child I watched my older Brother fishing for carp. He wasn't haven't any luck so he walked up the hill to a corn field. He took four ears of corn and scraped off all the corn kernels into a bucket. He grabs a handful of kernels and throws them in the water. We could see the carp feeding on the corn. When the carp finish eating he throw another handful of corn but this time he included in his baited hook loaded with corn kernels. He caught a monster carp.

            I like to use zucchini squash cut in half lengthways. I put a hook down into the flesh of the squash and toss it out into the water. The carp will slowly suck the zucchini flesh out of the skin and usually get the hook also.

              I use a nightwalker on a gang hook with a small sliding egg sinker. They are very spooky , so cast upstream and let the worm drift to them
