    ***CARP BAIT!***
    Ben Stankiewicz

    Langhorne, Pennsylvania

    I had been using bagels for channel cats in the Delaware river. Bagels work well on a bobber or at the bottom. One day I decided to try regular white bread instead of bagels, the bread is cheaper, and did not work as well. I knew they were catching 20 lb. carp recently; when I bought the bread I remembered to pick up some cornmeal and gelatin, I intended to make the cornmeal dough-bait the next day. I wasn't catching any fish, but I thought I would make some dough with the whitebread, dry cornmeal, and gelatin.

    I took four slices of bread and dipped them in the river, (I had to lower the bread into the water with my fishing rod, because the tide was low) I stripped the crust off the bread and added dry cornmeal to my bread and kneaded it for a while. With the dough still very moist I then sprinkled on some cherry gelatin mix. I then added cornmeal and kneaded until the dough was sticky and firm . The bait worked for carp and catfish. I got this idea from McClane's Encyclopedia of Fishing in the carp section pg 199!
