I live in lake jackson and I have been looking to find some common carp for bait on future fishing trips. I have been trying to rod-n-reel them with no luck at all. Any tips are greatly appreciated.
Where is Riverside CC? Dont think I have ever heard of that. But that does sound good.Riverside CC has huge buffalo carp. Is that place even open anymore? Heck they may let you kill them out there. You could see them right on the bank so they may be more inclined to let you scout the area on non-busy midweek if you aren't pulling a yak in there. That's where I would get in on if you can. They had a problem with those ponds (and hogs)
Or go bait up around the bank and sight cast them with a cast net if that is even legal?You might do a little research on bait. I remember years ago trying to catch them using homemade dough baits. Something like big red soda and corn flakes. Also peanut butter, syrup, and oatmeal. I'm sure somebody here has some recipes.
