Bait will be crazy: how to make bait for carp at home
Often fishermen call carps trophy fish. They are common in freshwater reservoirs, have a body length of up to one meter, and their live weight can even reach 20 kg. However, this is a very cautious fish, so it is not easy to catch it.
It is better to choose coarse bait, such as corn, peas, potatoes, mashed peas, mixed fodder and other cereals. Carp has an excellent sense of smell, so experienced fishermen advise adding milk powder, fish meal, cream, oilcake or bran. OBOZREVATEL collected the best bait recipes.
