    Here is a tip i saw posted. Good luck, let us know what works. A speeding boat will get them jumping, then i was thinking a 12ga would knock them down.

    Big head and silver carp are filter feeders so it is nearly impossible to legitly catch them via lure or bait offering. Snagging tends to be the ticket with "asian carp". If you really want to catch these fish bait fishing you have to go native.

    Get the largest catfish bobber you can find (those ones that look like a stick of dynamite). Under your bobber thread your line through the holes of the smalled whiffle ball you can find and attatch a three way swivel beneath the ball (it needs to be big enough to not pass through the hole or use a large rubber bead). Buy a pack of snelled bait holder hooks (size 2 or 4) and attach one (via a loop knot) to each of the open rings of the three-way swivel.

    Make a mixture of bread crumbs, oats (put through the blender), and a sweetened liquid of your choice. It should be firm enough to pack it to a ball but break up slowly. Mold this into and around the whiffle ball. Once this is complete lightly secure the snelled hooks into the ball of bait and cast out.

    The fish will be attracted to the breaking up particles of food and start to bat the ball around, dont set the hook yet. There will be no question once the fish is hooked.

      I've heard of guys using green acorns for Grass carp (a type of Asian carp), but other than that I haven't heard of anyone fishing for them with a rod-and-reel.

        They can be caught below dams in flowing water with twistertail jigs. Chartreuse green, motor oil, white, & black seem to be the preferred colors.
