Re: Carp Fishing

Apparently, I was mis-informed by the DOW officer. Time to grab a bottle of Jaeger and a can of corn..

Well, not going to drag this out past this comment.

By DOW's own definition "human food" is bait.

By the definition you were given, one would not be allowed to use marshmallows, hotdogs, chicken livers, etc... That would leave a whole bunch of pissed off trout, kokanee, and cat fishermen/women

Re: Carp Fishing

@Fowl_Hooked: I was given a warning at Boyd in 2006 or 2007 by a ranger for using corn in CO waterways. I don't have a copy of the 2012 regs at hand, but the warning was baded on the rule against use of food as bait. I'll find the exact wording when I can dig up the regulation I'm reffering to.

Careful with corn guys, and the same reg, if still in use, would also ban breaddough for bait as well...

Re: Carp Fishing

Corn is absolutely legal to use for bait in Colorado- show me the regs. that state it's not. Chumming however is not legal, so you will have to rely on a few kernels on a hook. I prefer green giant extra sweet niblets or steam crisp super sweet yellow & white. Try & target areas with high carp populations, trout really love corn as well & tend to swallow the hook. I have seen bass, bluegill, crappie, bullhead, sheephead, trout, & pike (yes pike- my friend caught a 16" & 18" pike- wouldn't have believed it if I wasn't there)caught on canned corn. I have a theory every living thing likes corn, especially after my wife videos our 3 month old kitten eating corn right off the cob, no salt or butter or seasoning of any kind. Dough- baits with strawberry jello work as well, but again, expect to slaughter mucho trout. Crayfish work well at times too, I insert the hook (# 4 or 6 baitholder) through the thorax or tail and smash the head with a rock to get a little scent in the water. Good luck, hope you get into some!

Ummm.....huh? No it doesn't

Which brings up my next point -- canned corn soaked in dole pineapple juice works very well for carp.
thread 4 or 5 kernels on a #4 octopus hook and put 2 split shot about 10" above the hook. Cast out and wait. If they are in the area they will usually bite.

Sloan lake - take some dough (bread) and you will be in action in no time.

Re: Carp Fishing

Crayfish meat also works well for carp. Too bad this state has the regulation against use of corn, its hands down the best bait for carp...
