Hi,  At the rear of our house is a beautiful small lake which apparently is packed with fish of all sizes. It is rarely fished.  I wish to take up this fantastic sport. I did it when I was a kid.
I will use the float and tackle method. My question is:
What baits can be used?

Live baiting best if you can stomach it. You got access to earthworms?  If so, use hooks with a barb on the shank.  Insert the point of a hook into the worm just in front of its saddle (the raised thick band about one-third along the worm) and carefully thread as much of the worm as you can onto the hook  and over the barb before the point emerges - not for the squeamish - the worm will wriggle furiously.
Good fishing

Thanks Arfur, maybe Top spin will write some further input here on the forum, I will be down in Khon Kaen next weekend, so I'll make it in my way to see Paul.

I generally used a basic bread mix that I used to buy from the bait shops around the lake,however any meat/prawn etc on a hook will attract the big boys.

Hooked a 17kg Carp down here in Hua Hin using a bread mix and float.

Happy hunting.
If you have to tell the world how good you are,you're probably not that good!!!!

Thanks Steve for your valid info:  I have just been there an hour or so earlier, and seen a young Thai boy fishing with bread mix and banana Shocked  I didn't stay around too long. The float that he was using, perched like a main-sail from a schooner above the water. It was blowing around like a piece of paper in a gusty wind, yet there wasn't any wind!LOL
