Artificial Baits Lighting it Up

A kernel of artificial corn (orange)
and a kernel of regular corn
on the hair rig was a hot combo.
Artificial baits really lit it up this weekend.  I was out on Saturday and Sunday and landed 8 carp from 10-15 lbs.  The hot bait was a kernel of ESP, orange, buoyant, artificial sweetcorn (plastic) and a kernel of regular sweetcorn fished on the hair rig ahead of a method ball.  I also heard news of a phenomenal catch, a 31 lb. common, landed by the RI Dark Carper, Kev Wasliewski.  He was using the same bait to catch that monster.  His story and video are on his blog at
From Europe to the US artificial baits are hot baits right now and more and more of them are being developed.  At Big Carp Tackle ( ), the biggest US online carp store, you can find THREE PAGES of artificial baits that include plastic corn, artificial boilies, plastic nuts, foam pop-ups, plastic bugs, plastic bread,  etc.  Some are in bright colors that are super attractive to carp.  Some float, some sink, and some are even scented.  There is a whole industry out there that is producing this artificial bait because it works with amazing effectiveness.  Artificial baits are best used on a hair rig because they are hard plastic. If you haven't tried these yet, give them a try.  They are hot right now.
This is one of 8 carp from 10-15 lbs. that was landed this weekend on artificial corn.
