Carp Fishing Bait Resource

One of the most common questions is, What is the Best Bait for Carp Fishing? It can be quite complicated as carp can be caught on almost anything, from high-end commercial baits to something as simple as a piece of coloured foam. This resource is meant as a starting point by outlining carp anglers’ many options for baits to catch carp.

Homemade Carp Baits vs Commercial Carp Baits

Both have their pros and cons. Homemade baits are easier to come by and cheaper to buy, but commercial carp baits won’t spoil as quickly and offer higher attraction value.

With an environment-first approach, we believe it is best to do what is suitable for the outdoor areas we enjoy rather than sending users off to buy a cheap product to make a buck.
