Carp Classic in Point was a hot one today. Our bread baits produced equally as the corn baits. No trophies, but was a good time as usual. Daughter and I landed 99.6lbs of carp. Our biggest was 13.3lbs. morning bite was definitely the best for us, but our biggest came around 1pm. Also caught 2 small mouth bass and a channel cat on corn.
Saturday got off early mid day looking for carp spots near oakcreek to just hook into some fish with a buddy from work. We work at industrial bakery so bread n dough will be main bait. Tichigan fox and phantom will hold tournaments that day so trying to stay out there we won't be off till just after noon.
OK catexecuter as for my dough I use couple different things fresh bag of cheap white bread works well with this rig as shown but works with any dough or premade stick type bait for places that are no snags this rig is a snag finder. I was fishing one day with my dad long ago we saw carp rolling n we weren't catching anything so he ran and got bread we've used bread since I can remember hooking up if u pack it to hard can be $#!+ but to loose it goes flying n u get to watch them suck it off top water if it still floats or u know they are eating it n it eats you up inside the whole time. Well the carp were rolling a ways out so I wanted to really pack it I was like 10 so I went inventing a rig with my dads stuff I took a stinger hook n hooked it on just a Aberdeen hook. But it would make hook hang out I thought that would just sit out side their mouth so I cut off treb tied Aberdeen hook on with a long tag end used two loop knots hung over top of Aberdeen hook is secret two times than tighten down right before hook bend than tie on a sm treb on tag end as close to Aberdeen hook as you can using slip known pulling tag end to tighten before you slip knot tight. My old man laughed n said boy you just invented the poormans boilie I could whip it out there a country mile n hook set is awesome just make sure rod is set where they can't take it cause a lot of the time they will inhale on move n set hook themselves n take off. If anyone uses it I'd like feed back how it works for you. As far as dough a good one for me yeah my dough's are a secret. I use this rig for cats too when using hot dogs space between Aberdeen and treb is a lot bigger I push treb thru quarter dog n turn half way n stab back in to dog. It holds well and sets like a gem.

I’ve caught Carp on this lake just under 40” fishing for them on purpose so it has tremendous potential.
This one chomped an 1/8 oz jig with a crawler chunk. Lite action walleye rod, so the Terrova got workout following her around. Was a blast, mid thirties on the bump board.
