Too Easy Grits

This is a really simple grits base bait that I would highly recommend in hot weather for catching carp.

The simplicity and quick setup time makes it an ideal choice when you need a fast but effective bait for carp. It works well for both common and buffalo carp. I have used this bait several times with great success. It breaks down in water in about 1 to 2 minutes and for some reason the orange flavor in this example is a terrific choice for some big fish. The family size instant grits that are used in this example can be a little hard to find unless you get the box with packets and have to tear them individually but if you can find it, it works well. Grits based baits tend to work best in 80 degrees or higher temperatures.

This is a very easy and effective grits recipe.  
I used this recipe on 7/7/2020 and caught about 10 carp at Fosters paylake.  I used 2 packs of orange cool aid to flavor it.  For my pickup i used corn puffs with karo syrup and 1 pack of orange cool aid. It was mostly sunny and 90 degrees.  Three of the carp(buffalo) weighed 35, 28.9 and 20 pounds.  I also caught several teen yellow carp and lost a few runs.
