Strawberry Carp Bait

Strawberry Carp Bait created by Tyler S.

My grandfather loved fishing and used to make a fish bait called Doughballs that was similar to this recipe, but not strawberry. I found this recipe online and it brought back lots of wonderful fishing memories!

    I followed the direction and couldn't get any firmness to hold onto hook. I used something similar to this years ago that worked so much better.

    I caught my 2 carp the next day after making this bait and I had never even caught a carp before and caught 2 in one day only rating 4 stars because how sticky and messy this stuff is
