Where do you buy trout chow? Local feed stores? Thanks for your help.

Yeah it's used by people who own ponds to feed their fish. You can buy it at most ponds by the pound but it will more than likely already be ground up it varies from pond to pond. You can get whole trout chow pellets at Southern States but you will have to buy 50 lbs, but I think they might just carry one size but you would probably be able to order whatever size you prefer. Around here (Caldwell County NC area) most people go to Johnson's Milling & Feed. If you're coming from Lenoir it's on highway 90 after you pass the Alexander County line on the left. If you are on 90 you can't miss it.

Try this. 1 box of minute maid rice (28oz), 2 eggs (just yokes), 2 room temp 12oz can Mtn Dews, 5 caps of Banananut, 3 caps of vanilla butternut, and one cap of peach. I go to the ABC store and buy a small bottle of Banana 99 sometimes to add but only like a teaspoon full. First put in flavoring a in the bucket, then banana 99 if using, then the 2 egg yokes, then the 2 12oz cans of Mountain Dew. Pour the rice in last and let set a couple of hours before using. Good luck!

These men will NOT tell you jack. This is a very competitive sport. I have seen fights and even pistols pulled at some.

Heard of a guy who illegally gets SNAP benefits and uses them to buy bait to go carp fishing for money.

Thanks

I'll give you a good rice bait since I don't fish your area and you aren't fishing mine. Instant rice (not the premium) 28 oz box of rice 52 oz catsup a tablespoon of salt then add your flavoring banana nut is what they are hitting now strawberry/ black cherry a little later on after the water heats up. mix it together and let it sit 12 hours before you throw it. you can throw all of it as it won't dry out on you. Lets hear that chow recipe.

Larry I don't know if anyone is still watching this thread , but I will tell you that there is a science to making bait . The best carp bait I have ever seen is a simple cow terd ....believe it or not ! When it breaks down it's nothing more than grains and such , but pond owners will kick you out because it's not good for the pond/lake .
In the hot summers in SC here's the bait I've had really good luck with at 8 different tournament /pay lakes .
1 -28oz box of instant rice (make sure instant)
2 -24 oz bottles of cheap ketchup .
1 box strawberry jello
1 cup of kosher salt
4-5 cap fulls of strawberry butternut flavoring .(R&W Brand)

Mix all these together thouroughly 24 hours before use .
When it is mixed up it will look like soup and you will never believe it will pack .
But 24 hours later the ketchup will soak in and the rice will expand .
The jello will give it a semi rubbery texture .

Don't use sugar pops ! Use an unsweetened corn pop cereal .
Put the pop on a #1 red mustad and dip it in hot cinnamon flavor .

The rice resembles maggots (carps favorite food )

This is step by step what I fish at the lakes I will not name (lol)
Take the advice if you want , but over the past 3-4 years I've won approximately $10,000 with this recipe .

Lefty’s Carp Balls:
From what little I know,Lefty used this on the upper Potomac river primarily,not in ponds. Carp are not heavily fished there. I was out there last Saturday (with no carp bait) and there were at least 25 5# to 20# fat river carp swimming around (plus 50 14" smaller carp).
They would not bite what I was throwing (2" plastic curly tail bait.
I hope to try the bait out next weekend....

Used this bait back in the 1960s -- in the upper Potomac, mostly across from Harpers Ferry WV. Caught a ton back then (from 2 pounds to near 40 pounds), but it's probably worthless for use in a pay lake today.
I first read about it in Sports Afield in an article by Lefty Kreh, way back in 1965 or 66.

some carp ponds wont let you use the #6 or #4 chow cause it has a tendency to float but most of them will let you use #2 or #3 also some pond owners will not let you use it at all or just certain times of year just depends on where your fishing at
