Rigging Corn Kernels

Believe it or not corn kernels are a great bait for a number of freshwater fish species. I have caught trout, carp, mullet and bass on them. Buy the cheapest sweet corn kernels straight from the can and don't forget to throw some into the water as burley.

I don't have a specific hook size, only that it is has to be small enough to slide a few corn kernels onto the shaft of the hook. I've successfully used size 10 to size 2 hooks for carp. The size 10 short shank hooks are my preferred choice for float fishing. The float should be set to suspend the hook just above the bottom.

You could also try the paternoster, running ball sinker down onto the hook, a running sinker down onto a swivel and a leader of about a metre, a small split shot or just unweighted. You can check these rigs out in Gary Brown's Essential Bait Fishing Rigs.
