Carp chum?

    Is it legal to chum corn for carp? My son caught one the other day (on a night crawler) and now he’s hooked. I’ve read corn is a pretty good bait for carp and thought chumming would be a good idea if legal. We caught our fish in a current area between two lakes. Would a spot like this produce all summer?

    I highly doubt anyone would give two rips about throwing out corn for carp. Give the kids a good time IMO

    The regulations are the law. What kind of thinking are you teaching young sportspeople by saying you only need to follow the regulations you want to because no one cares if you break the law or not? Lots of young people look at IDO and we want them to learn good sportsmanship. Please think before you comment. Thanks!

    I’m sorry, I thought we were talking about carp here. You know, those garbage fish that maybe 3% of fisherman that actually know what a good fight is that purposely fish for them.

    Most everywhere else chumming is legal. I’m not gonna go and say it’s another one of those dumb MN laws bc I rarely rag on the MN dnr, and certainly don’t flex the rules for my liking. But it’s freaking throwing out corn for carp for goodness sake.

    I am not condoning bending a law, but for carp, I would be tossing out 2-3 cans of Sweet corn in an area and then laying your hook with 5-6 kernels in the same area. This will produce action. Get one of those big cans like restaurants buy, and let ‘er rip…. Not that I would approve of it, but from what I May have heard, it is a GREAT time! They fight like crazy. And when they find your chum, the action can be incredible!

    Is that a rhetorical question?

    I explained my line of thinking that he had asked for.

    Not to long ago we had a stay at home order. There were plenty of people that were clearly breaking the order on different levels, where was your outcry then? Rules are rules no? Why nitpick on carp chumming?

    Young people reading over IDO and seeing a bunch of curmudgeons being butthurt over throwing out corn will hurt them alot more of losing out on a fishing community that they don’t visit than breaking some outdated silly laws. But that’s just beads opinion.

    You “don’t bend the rules to your liking” ? Yet in the same breath you condone doing just that.

    I do honestly want thank you for your compliment, I’m pleased that you feel I have achieved curmudgeon status. No, I’m not being sarcastic, the following link explains the important role we play in society.

    Maybe just maybe, you also may be a curmudgeon.

    I’m called a curmudgeon quite a bit Dave at the ripe old age of 36. I let people know of the realities of life more than most want and that’s fine with me. I completely get what you are saying without reading that link.

    With that said, getting all grumpy on a dad wanting to up his chances on having his kids have a good time pulling in carp is about the most curmudgeon thing ever, thinking of the big picture crap we are all going thru right now.

    Works better to put that corn in a gunny sack keep it wet for a few days and let it ferment. Anchor it out a few days before going in your spot.

    Check out method leads. Use pack bait and form it into a ball on the method lead. Chuck it out there and it breaks up when it hits the water and falls around your hook on the bottom. Not quite as effective as chumming but probably the closest you can get to it legally.

    This guy’s a goof but it’s a good video explaining how to use it. He also has videos on how he makes his pack bait using bread crumbs and canned corn.
