Default Bread + Vanilla = Carp Attractor?



Advertise Here

Before you laugh, carp are completely edible when prepared properly. Just de bone, mince the meat, combine it with corn flour and a binder like an egg and make hush puppies. That said, in a SHTF situation with a low food supply, I will be more concerned with calories and nutrition than taste.

I read an article archived online by the local newspaper about a father/son team that fish off the docks at a local lake. They claim that spearing a piece of an old roll or hoagie bun on a hook and then dousing it with imitation vanilla flavoring creates an irresistible bait for carp.

Has anyone else heard of this sort of bait? Do you think it would work with a plastic gummy worm? I would try it out but the water is too cold this time of year for the fish to hang out at the docks.

We used a can of kernel corn with a packet of grape kool aid mixed in. It worked very well.

As a child I fished for carp all the time. It was the easiest way to practice your fish fighting technique with a big fish.


I used whatever cheap bread that we had on hand to make carp bait. The added vanilla extract did make a better bread dough bait. You would take a couple slices of bread, peel the crusts off, add a few drops of vanilla extract to the bread and a few drops of water. Then crush the bread into a ball. If you've done it right your new dough-ball is still a little dry and you add a little more water and continue squishing the dough-ball until you get and evenly damp dough- ball that is still fairly rigid.



You can pull chunks off of the dough-ball and form the piece of dough around your hook, hiding the entire hook. You don't want the ball around your hook to be larger than the mouth of the carp that you're fishing for. If the dough is too wet, it will fly off the hook on the cast or fall off after it's been in the water for a while.


It's best to make your dough several hours before using it so that the moisture and vanilla scent can equalize throughout the dough.



Brings back great memories.

Yep, corn kernels on the hook and a bit of bread berley. Carp are so easy to catch, I can't imagine putting any more effort or money into the bait.
