|This 12 lb. common was caught in a spot|
that was prebaited with American chop suey.
Well, it has worked. A couple of days ago I landed a nice size common in a spot prebaited with the American chop suey. Today I landed 5 mirrors in a place that was prebaited with the chop suey.
Carp like any product made from wheat. Stuff like bread and pasta fit the bill. They also like such table fare as rice, potatoes, peas, crackers, nuts and any kind of cake-like dessert. Add to the list dry dog food, dry cat food and bird seed. All of these things can be prebaited to lure carp to a swim.
While I prebaited American chop suey, I did catch the fish on maize. I haven't quite figured out how to hair rig a piece of elbow macaroni.
