I was looking at a couple recipes online. Some add jello packets for flavor. I've messed around with making boilies but never had much luck with them.

Do you chum at all, or just toss out the dough balls?

I've added half a cantaloupe melon and the whole box of wheat flakes in a gallon ziplock, smash it all together and let it sit outside for a day or so.  Then throw it in the refrigerator and pull it out when it's time to bait up the treble.  When it's cold, it makes nice balls that I glob on a treble, occasionally with a worm pre-threaded on the treble.  Bullheads and cats also find it scrumptious, but so do the fallfish and rockies. I'm sure there are a billion recipes out there.  Tight lines!

A lot of fun being had right there!!  We always used 1 cup of yellow corn meal, 1 cup of flour, and enough dark Karo syrup to bind it together.  Throw the whole sticky ball in a Zip-Lok and you're ready to go.  Roll it into appropriate size bait balls as you need it.  Keeps well even unrefrigerated (don't leave it in a hot truck for days  ::) ) and carp love it.
Bigger isn't always better but Size definitely Matters!

So, I made up some of the shredded wheat bait and went out Sunday morning. I chummed a bit with corn, peas and pieces of the wheat bait. Got two. Not huge but encouraging. They were porpoising all around me. Getting close to the spawn I'd say. With two rods out and fishing from the boat it was a Chinese fire drill trying to get the other rod out of the water.

Thinking of making some pack bait for chum from that mix. Maybe add some dried milk and corn meal. Some sweetener is probably a good idea too.

Love those carp!

We were covered up with jumping fish but got most bites when they seemed not to be jumping

They're in full spawn around here right now. It'll give me a chance to get some carp stuff organized.

Might take a look at the creek tomorrow morning.
