Carp are bottom feeders and they like a variety of bait. However, if they don’t like the bait, they’ll spit it back out. It’s best to put out pellets, biscuits, corn, etc. in the water. The carp will come to the surface and begin feeding and become comforatble. Then bait your hook and throw it a bit away from the carp and slowly drag it over to where the carp are feeding. Continue throwing the food into the water and before they realize it, they will go for the bait on your hook.
