Common Carp (Cyprinus carpio) is an extremely popular freshwater gamefish in many parts of Europe, and its popularity is rapidly growing in the USA as well. This species prefers large bodies of slow or standing water and soft, vegetative sediments. As carp are schooling fish, they usually stay in groups of five or more. Carp can grow to a maximum length of 120 centimetres (47 in), a maximum weight of over 40 kilograms (88 lb). But on average are about 40-80 cm (15-30 in) and 2-14 kg (4-30 lbs). Best bait for carp is semolina balls, dough balls, corn and peas, among others.

Preferred baits:

Semolina Balls

Marshmallows

Crickets

Peas

Try fishing around the car wreck area, I've had luck with the slightly bigger ones there before.
