I hear that cut up carp is good for laker bait. How do you cut it and what parts do you use? If I don't catch any my self what other options do I have to get some? Any suggestions on takle to go with the sucker meat? Where is a good spot to start looking for the lakers at chambers?Sorry I've been asking so many questions, I'm just so excited to get out there and catch some fish. I've just been reading and learning so much I want to get the basics straight.

Man, back in MN in the Mississippi it was hard to tell the dif. Carp, Redhorse, suckers, Buffalos, and some things that "glowed" near the Nuke power plants that were various types of mutts... :D

I mainly use about a 1in. piece in length, a qt, to half in. wide. The main thing to be sure, is when you bait your jig, make sure there aren't any scales covering the point of the hook. You need to get a good hook set, especially if they're down deep.
