    try feeding them on something and try to observe them feeding early morning or dusk, see if anyone else on the lake has caught any, if so from where and what on?

    If they are recent introductions its possible they will have a taste for fishmeal type baits, if others aren't using them try the Dynamite Marine Halibut pellets or boilies. Maybe a criticaly balanced bait or a pop up would work as most koi are fed on floating pellets.

    Nishi Koi floating pellets. 52 per tub. Kois can't resist them.

    Getting them on a hook's a ****** though.

    can always use em to make a paste woody but at 52 a tub my missus might make me eat it if I bought it!

    What gets me is if I come home with a bag of boilies, say 10, that's bad. Come home with a tub of Nishi Koi for the fat sods outside and she says that's fine.

    Women? There's no winning with them.

    That's a huge tub mind and you can get smaller toffe jar sizes. Getting them out any distance is difficult also, but you can pre-soak them for added weight. I don;t know what it is about them, but my fish clear those before they'll touch the cheaper stuff.

    Could it be because thats what they were reared on?

    Have you tried them on carp baits ie boilies?

    What is in them could you get hold of some of the ingridiants to include in boilies and have you tried them on our normal carp rather than just kois?

    chum mixers we have over here Kiwi and they've always been a good bait for carp. Do the Kiwis like carp or are they considered a pest like they are in Aus? Not a pointed question by the way just interested.
