Dough Bait for Carp

CarpCarp bait can be made with wheaties, onion salt, and garlic powder. Put wheaties in a handcloth, two handfuls, then pour on onion salt about 3 tablespoons, then 3 tablespoons of garlic powder. Pull up the four corners of the cloth and twist to enclose the mixture.

Dip it in the water to wet it, then knead the wheaties inside the cloth. Use your fingers to squeeze the flakes together and mix the powder to make a consistent dough. If it is too dry and you need more liquid get more water by redipping. To removed excess water squeeze out by tightening the cloth. Dough should hold on hook well and be rubbery and malleable.

Cover the entire hook and knot with a ball of dough.  Carp have a sensitive mouth and you want them to feel as little of your tackle as possible.

Telescopic Fishing Rods

seven footerWe’ve all been there. We’ve been away on vacation or had to go across town and find a place to fish but we don’t want to carry around a six or 7 foot fishing rod on the bus.  Look what we can do with our telescopic fishing rod. It will fit in a backpack quite nicely.  With a minimal amount of effort you can carry around a fishing rod in your backpack.

They are great for taking in a canoe,  along on a backpacking adventure, or keeping under the seat of your car for a quick fishing session when a few dull moments arrive.

Telescopic Travel Fishing Rods

fishermanThe Versatile Telescopic Fishing Rod

Telescopic fishing rods are a great way to take an impromptu side trip.  Pack rods and telescopic rods are a great way to take your fishing rod anywhere.  In fact our fishing rods have been to every continent except Antarctica (that we know of).  Ellis Island, the Great Lakes, India, Central and South America, Africa and all over South East Asia- they’ve been there and more. Canoeing and backpacking are great ways to save space with by carrying a travel rod.  Motorcycles of all sorts have carried Ogeechee Outdoors travel rods across land far and wide. Get your travel fishing rod and get active on the water reeling in fish while others only wish they could.
