|This released carp was one of 9 carp landed today on|
sweetcorn or sweetcorn/artificial corn fished on the hair rig.
So, I went back to using sweetcorn today and the results were impressive. I was either using sweetcorn alone or in combination with artificial corn. I did two short sessions today, three hours in the morning and two hours in the evening. In that time I managed to put 9 carp on the bank up to 20 lbs. It was very good fishing, and I credit the sweetcorn for the success.
I will warn fishermen that if you use sweetcorn at this time of year you had better check your bait fairly often like every 20 or 30 minutes. Several times today I found out I had no bait. I'm sure turtles and suckers were taking it off. But, when it stayed on, it was very effective.
If you are looking for some inexpensive but quality sweetcorn try "Double Luck" sweetcorn sold at Walmart. It sells for about 50 cents a can.
