A Old timer that got me into Carp fishing used french fries or cherry tomatoes. Both worked well.I liked the fries because the carp will rise up to them like a plug. Hang on and keep your drag set lite. They are like a fresh water marlin when you hook a big one. They will come up out of the water and fly like they had wings.

I'd also heard cherry tomatoes work.

They do! As a kid my grandma's pond had grass carp in it and tommie toes worked GREAT!

I've only fished for them in one privite pond.We would cut the grass and blow it into the pond.They would school up eating the cut grass.You could throw anything into the feeding frenzy and hook one.

I didn't know there was such a thing. Is that the same as the "Cherry Tomotoes" mentioned above?

If grass carp are actively feeding, they will hit a fly, small plastic crawfish imitation, dough ball, or even occasionally grass on a hook. The trick is to find one actively feeding and get the bait in front of its nose. The hard part is that 90% of the time grass carp are just hanging out suspended, as if they're asleep or something, and they won't eat anything no matter what it is.

No cherry tomatoes are a fruit. I would make doe balls with white bread. I peel off the edges and wad it up into a compact ball on a hook. Then put vanilla extract on the ball. Works good for common carp but not so much for the grass carp. Good info fellas looking forward to trying the french fries and cherry toms at the pond.

These fish were in very shallow, clear water, so I imagine that the presentation would have to be very stealthy also, regardless of the bait used. But I'm gonna try them. A twenty pounder roaring off,might be more fun than you would want. lol

I know a 20 pounder on a arrow and string will turn a 1648 welded boat in circles.
