    I caught a carp at Otay yesterday on a Texas rig, but with bread on it with 8lb line. I was pretty surprised. unnamed (1).jpg

    I haven't fished for carp in a good long while, but I have caught them as a bycatch.

    When I used to fish for them at Santee growing up we just used balled up bread on a small treble hook on a Carolina rig or with a lightish sliding sinker with no swivel. Probably 8lb line. We also used corn back then too with the same setup.

    Yo, sorry that I have not replied I have been busy with football and school anyway I use many rigs one of them is on the carp section as well, my preferred baits are in order of best to worst: bread, fruit loops, tortillas, corn, peas. I mainly use light line 2-8lb test in mono sometimes fluro. I drop shot, fly line, c-rig, and that's about it. Bird seed works really well as chum just put some in the water and drop your bait in the middle, I usually chum any time I'm fishing for Carp. Hope this helps, tight lines

    Be careful about that, Chris. Per the DFG inland freshwater regs:

    2.40. CHUMMING. Chumming is permitted only in:
    (a) The Colorado River District, but only the approved bait fishes for this District may be used as chum (see Section 4.15) except in the Salton Sea where corn may also be used.
    (b) Carquinez Strait and Suisun Bay and their tributaries and saltwater tributaries.
    (c) Sacramento River and tidewater of tributaries downstream from Interstate 80 bridge.
    (d) San Joaquin River and tidewater of tributaries downstream from Interstate 5 bridge
