I use a size 4 or size 6 treble hook when I use corn.

 

You can make a nice corn ball that way. Otherwise, a regular size 4 j-hook.

Crazy...  I see them in the creek toss corn worms any kind of bait meaning the entire table box too and nothing,,, My kid catches a monster on a #6 hook w/a single kernel of corn on his Iron Man fishing rod!

Gotta chum them up with a handful of corn. Toss yours in the mix and watch it with polarized sunglasses.  It's pretty exciting watching a big, fat Carp mozey his way slowly up to your bait.

+1 to ridenfish.  
 

My son just caught a few carp with #6 single hook, a kernel of corn and split shot to get it on the bottom.  They chum with a handful of corn and eventually they suck up your  bait.  Him and his friend were fishing two rods.  The rod with the 10lb line caught 6 carp.  Rod with 14lb line had zero.  Maybe they’re a little line shy?

A carp's vision and intelligence is nearly unmatched.

 

I have watched carp on a feed spread (chummed bait like corn) working their way towards my baited hook eating every kernel of corn they saw. My hook was concealed in sweet corn with no metal exposed. The minute the carp reached my baited hook they would come to a dead stop, hover over the baited hook while staring at it, then turn away, and resume eating the chummed corn in the spread.

 

I was using something like 10lb test mono.

And best way to catch it is to feed it day by day, ( or every few days ) for months, in the same, deep place with some obstacles.
