At this time of year feeding is key, corn is a great bait for this time of year as it is visual and does not fill the fish up too quickly. I like to start out by feeding a handful of hemp and about 30 grains of corn through a pole pot, this will give me a target area to try and get a few fish from.
The most important thing is to keep the corn going in as the visual attraction falling through the water will attract any fish that are moving. I feed the corn every few minutes via a catapult but only feed 5 grains at a time, each time I feed I will lift the rig and drop it so it mimics the corn which has been catapulted out. Keep feeding through your session, even if there are little indications of fish being in your swim as the regular noise and falling baits will attract the carp even in the coldest of conditions.
