I don't know the lake city marina, but in any carp fishing all I use is either whole kernel sweet corn or nightcrawlers.

I use a sinker w/bead above a barrel swivel, 6-8 inches of fluorocarbon leader, and a bait hook. Fish right on the bottom, cast to where the fish are if you can see 'em, sit and wait.

2) You can only have corn on your hook. Any loose kernels in the water is not legal. It is considered chumming. If the DFG agent wanted to give you a hard time, he/she could write you a ticket for both chumming the water AND feeding ducks and geese with corn.

That's what I just pulled up

BUT ILLEGAL after trout stocking has begun in the lake or body of water that you are fishing.

I might believe it is on some (have not fished every lake) but not all lakes and rivers. People use corn all the time for sunfish and carp.

    • Update   I was able to get an extension kit from Tim's Outboard! Couldn't believe it, I checked all over the internet and local shops and NOBODY had the right one for my motor, but Tim's was able to dig one up. It was a great price too, much less than I expected to pay. They shipped it out to me and I'll be installing it on Sunday. Thanks to swamptiger for the suggestion!
    •    Whether, for examples, it's the Trumper's silence, and sometimes support of, his proposed stimulus spending after opposing BHO's, or war protesters largely absent while BHO intervenes in the Middle East after 6 years of massive protest marches when GWB did, or this story, I guess it's up to the observer to decide how much of this so called outrage you've seen in the last several decades has been really based on true principles or just party politics. The press has promised to scrutinize Trump. Great. I expect that. The problem is they've lost their credibility with the rabble so the rabble are left with trying to figure out which institution is telling the truth or pulling our legs   I suppose the one positive to come from the Trump presidency is the left will now become concerned with things like fiscal responsibility, Executive Branch overreach, and interventionism in the Middle East. Not that I wouldn't welcome their  conversions once again to the aforementioned issues after taking a hiatus the last 8 years. But, better late than never, I guess

    • *snicker*   CPAC scrambles to control damage after attendees wave Russian flags during Trump speech Brad Reed
      24 Feb 2017 at 10:44 ET                        CPAC attendees wave Russian flags with the word "TRUMP" written on the front.   Staffers at CPAC quickly scrambled to confiscate Russian flags with the word “TRUMP” on the front that were being waved by attendees during President Donald Trump’s speech on Friday. The trouble began when some attendees took out pro-Trump flags to wave during the president’s speech that also happened to have the same white-blue-and-red striped pattern as Russian’s official flag.    
    • If you take it in just put a new carb on it.  Save money on cleaning, just did mine 80 bucks for a new carb installed runs like it used to
    • The more the merrier. Funny how I always make picks, second guess and change and should've stayed with original picks. Still fun to do though. Should be interesting year with some of the big changes.
