WELCOME TO THE MAD MDs
ill say the same basicly it the same as normal carp fishing, if they have never been fished for you could try prebaiting a spot out of way somewhere for a couple of weeks to get them used to the bait/feed your going to use,
if youwant more detailed advice please feel free to post on here it would be a great help if you could let us know more details for examples, size/depth of lake ,size of fish,what tackle you have available to use as we understand that in the different countries/continents these can change.
it would also help if you could just give us a rough idea of the type of fishing you have done & we could then try our best to help
A piece of bagel (floats nicely) has taken more than a few grassies.
And would you believe - they can be caught with pieces of weed tied on the hook and fished mid-water under a bobber.
Oh - and welcome to you. What part of New Orleans? I lived in Gretna a few years (well, quite a few LOL) years back.
Your state is getting to be sorta famous among some US carpers too. A couple from the Western US have set out to catch carp from all 50 states. They just added #47 when they found a pond in Hawaii with Koi. Now only Alaska (haven't been there yet) and Louisianna (3 trips over a couple of years and all blanks so far) are left.
