I wasn't trying to catch them but I think if it's close to the bottom and looks like something to eat they will eat it. My daughter caught one the last time she went with me.

Search the forum for carp, there's answers to this question in a few threads. I just typed up a short answer for what has lately worked for me in another thread yesterday. Very short answer though: try a yellow globug.
