I have no problem with catching carp at my local commercial. It's just there is supposed to be chubb, barbel, tench, bream, roach, rudd and crucians. All I seem to be catching is common carp. What cahnges do I have to make in order to catch some of the fish on that list? (I especially like catching bream and have never caught a tench!)

Have you tried maggot?

Feeding in a different manner will also make a difference. Instead of doing what we all tend to start doing, and putting large amounts of feed in, try trickling a few maggots at a time on a regular basis.

Hemp would be a good alternative to pellets too. Barbel, and bream love it. And if the fish are used to pellets being thrown in, something different may make the carp a little slower on the uptake.
