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.

I caught a couple using squid one time. I wanted to try something different because where I was fishing had lots of little fish that would steal the shrimp we had been using.

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)

Where is Riverside CC? Dont think I have ever heard of that. But that does sound good.

I'm sorry, I dont think that is correct. The old golf course is now a church.

Shows you how long it's been since I lived down there. Thanks for the correction. Guess all the old DOW retirees got too old to play golf and the millenials would rather do other things than join a course. We just went there to eat because at the time that was the best place in LJ. Probably even easier to get access to shoot carp being a church now , heck and maybe run some pig traps. Good luck.

My brother went there last year. Said it was kinda overgrown and the "ponds" were full of grass. He was trying to bass fish and didnt mention carp so I don't know what the status is.

Buffalo Camp Bayou, there are some smallmouth buffalo in there. You would probably have to bowfish for them at night though.

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.

Or go bait up around the bank and sight cast them with a cast net if that is even legal?
