Hmmmmm!

 

So, carp swim around and may find your offerings, or someone elses.

 

Now if you but a buzzer in with your offerings, and carp begin to associate the buzz with freebies, they may make a beeline to where your baits are.

Leon,

 

I 100% agree with your link with this execption.  The LONGEST I was able to show retention in a natural setting was 4 days which predictably dimminished to 7 days back to stupid.  It also took about a week (plus or minus many variables) to train them.  BTW I believe - just me - they are naturally conditioned and reinforced to grass carp munching on hydrilla or lilly.  Also works with a blinking light however combining the two did not improve results.

 

In my case I never knew if I had the same carp so my results were not nearly as impressive.

 

Phone.

Maybe something more than a simple buzzer is needed.

Leon,

 

That's what we used - music rather than a buzzer.
