Up in NY we would use corn to fish for carp most of the time. Always seemed to catch them just did not always stay on the hook.

I am interested in your feedback. Thanks, I wrote this to see about trout fisherman because trout can't digest the kernels and it kills them, carp on the other hand will be just fine. Thanks again.

Corn is totally illegal in my state for the reason that it kills fish who eat it. It kills them because the hull cannot break down and blocks the bowel, causing it and the fish to die.

Get the cheapest Wal-Mart or Kroger brand. The fish won't know the difference. Works well on Trout.

THANK YOU CHARLEY!!! That's my whole point for the "bait slingers" here in East Tenn. It may be o.k. for other species? I don't know, but it kills trout and does damage to the other species as well.
