of two kernels of maize along
with a pink artificial pop-up corn.
Most carp fishermen prepare their own maize. A fifty pound bag can be bought at Tractor Supply for about $9. It is sold as "whole corn". It then has to be prepared. This is done by putting it into a large pot and adding water. Let it sit overnight or for about 6 hours. I then boil it for exactly 35 minutes. After boiling, let it sit and soak up the water. I then pack it into containers and refrigerate it until I am ready to fish with it. I will use the maize for both chum as well as bait.
