It would be useful if you were able to specifiy what the different kind of carp are as different species of carp eat different things & are caught in different ways.

Asian/silver carp are filter feeders & are difficult to catch on rod & line, but a successful method being a doughball fished above a nest of tiny hooks underneath a bobber. the idea that the fish bumps the doughball to dislodge particals of the ball & eventually end up hooking themselves as they filter the pieces.

Grass carp are predomantly vegetarians feeding on aquatic plants & detritus & can also be difficult to catch, although successful methods include sweetcorn, small tomatoes & sometimes boilies. Worms & other insect type baits have been known to take grassies too.

Other than these 2 different types of carp, fishing baits for the other types of carp are prety much the same.
Boilies are one of the most used baits for carp & there are many different types that can be used. without going into the sometimes complicated boilie making process, i would advise you buy readymade shelf life or frozen baits. Canned sweetcorn is also a popular method. Other baits to consider would be canned meats, bread or worms. Partical baits are another consideration but you have to prepare these properly or you can cause major harm to the fish if prepared incorrectly.

Other than baits themselves, baiting techniques are of consideration too. I dont know what tornament rules are like for the competitions you fish, but prebaiting could be a consideration for more successful angling & maybe catching bigger fish.
Whatever you choose i wish you good luck & tight lines.
