The hot bait in this May bonanza has been a combo bait of chick peas with a kernel of floating artificial corn. This is all placed on the hair rig with a method ball around the sinker. Chick peas or garbanzo beans are a hot bait here in RI. I buy mine dry. To prepare them, boil water then add a handful of them. Boil for exactly 20 minutes. I then let them sit and swell for a while and then transfer them to a container that I refrigerate.
In past years May has been one of my hottest months of carp fishing. This is a month in which the carp hit real well even in the middle of the daytime. For instance, in the last three days the hot action has occurred from noon to 3:00 PM. May is one of those months that produce a lot of fish as well as big fish. In the last five years I have landed 9 carp OVER 30 lbs. in the month of May and generally average about 100 carp this month.
If you can put in a lot of time fishing for carp, this is the month to do it!
