It's been many decades since I fished these same lakes, so I am curious, Bassmaster.
Are doughballs still the preferred bait for Carp?
Yes it is but I like to float bread on the surface.The only problem is If there is a lot of turtles and sunfish you can go though a loaf of wonder bread in a half hour

I recall the sunfish but don't remember the turtles being much of a problem way back when.

If I am correct, we also used to put kernel corn on the hooks for Carp which was relatively effective. Perhaps not as good as the doughballs but definitely more cost effective!

I went fishing at kissena park and it was an amazing day. Caught 7 catfish one was over a pound was huge and a sunnie. I tried a buzzbait for bass at the end nothing. Will upload video later. Fished from 1:30 to 4pm
