Oatmeal is one of the best pack baits. Catching carp with oatmeal is cheap, easy, and a classic method for landing more carp. Oatmeal is so popular because it forms a great sticky pack bait. You add water, oatmeal, your favorite carp attractants and hook bait and mix it all up and kneed it into a ball of pack bait. Mold the pack bait around you lead, your hook or a method feeder and you are good to go.
