    feed pellets-3mm
    corn
    small bits of paste
    4mm expanders
    1/2 red magg
    see which one works best
    then stick to it

    I wouldn’t fish it, I would go to a proper match and venue like the one at the Suffolk Water Park 🙂

    get yourself 4 pints of maggots and just fish your top 3.
    Start an inch off bottom and work your way up in the water, fishing double maggot on the hook and feeding 8/10 maggots every 20 seconds.
    You will be doing a wieght of the smaller carp but you’ll be suprised as to how many bigger carp move in.
    4 pints of maggots will cost you about 7 quid, but compare that to the price of pellets, expanders, corn, paste etc its probably cheaper.
    If the fish are in a feeding mood you’ll have a bite a chuck, if you are struggling on maggots the chances are all other baits wont work either.
    good luck
