Carp Bait or Duck Food?
A friend of mine sent me over this pic he took while spending some time at Raystown Lake. Folks were feeding the carp with some pellets bought at the marina store. Seems like these pellets make pretty good carp bait because it started this little fish feeding frenzy and soon a few ducks decided they were going to get in on the action as well. I normally don’t associate carp as being aggressive feeders. I do remember catching them on the Conestoga river, along with catfish when we were kids. We would make up dough balls by wetting some bread and then kneading it for a few minutes until it could be formed into a pasty substance that could be balled around our hook. Or
