carp fishing bait

When the fish are not active for feeding it is always worth trying home-made boilies. I very rarely use ready made boilies.

I think carp won’t be able to resist this sweet treat.

Combination of boilie and pop up boilie both homemade (snowman rig), soaked in CC Moore liquid molasses for a few minutes. One of my favorite fishing attractants is liquid molasses. Fish just love molasses, especially when the water is cold.



Waiting …


Fish on 😎…..
… just a little bit.

Beautiful common carp (at least for me, because carp with big bellies don’t impress me too much, regardless of his weight).

Goodbye beauty, see you someday.

I will have to make boilies because stocks have run out πŸ‘©.

Till next time …

This recipe came up in my head and I basically didn’t even know if I could make pop up boilies out of it. I wanted to make pop up boilies that will be very concentrated with strawberry flavor. However, since the recipe was successful, I will share it with you. I only advise you to make pop up boilies with your hands and not with a boilie roller because of the composition of the mix itself.

Dry corn / maize

First, the corn / maize had to be peeled the old-fashioned way, by hand.



The corn / maize is now peeled and ready to soak in water.

Soaking dry corn / maize

To soak the corn / maize, it is necessary to cover the corn with a few inches of water (tap water or lake water) . Corn / maize should be soaked for at least 24 hours to 30 hours or more.



I soaked the corn for 24 hours in a warm place. I strained the corn before cooking and drained the water (I will not use this water anymore).



Cooking soaked corn / maize

In my case, I poured water on the corn / maize in which I cooked the boilies. If you do not have this water, pour clean water from a tap or lake.

Now the corn / maize is ready for cooking.

Stir several times during cooking.

When the corn / maize started to cook I added one packet of instant hot chocolate powder and mixed everything together.

For an extra chocolate flavor I added 2 small bars of chocolate.

About an hour of cooking (on low heat)



If the corn / maize is cooked, check it by squeezing it between two fingers. it is cooked when you can squeeze it very easily.

Now the corn is cooked. Turn off the stove and cover the pot. It is best to leave the corn / maize in the pot for at least a few hours or better until the next day.



Corn / maize is ready for fishing

in this post I write how I prepare my base mix for boilies and recipe. I always mix boilie base mix at least one week (usually one month) before making boilies. I do this to give the mix a special scent from all the ingredients. But of course this is not absolutely necessary and you can skip this step. This is my method of preparation, but of course you can upgrade it to your own, as this is also the charm of making your own boilie base mixes.

You can use different flours and other ingredients in boilie base mixes. At the beginning of making your own boilie base mixes, it is important not to buy expensive ingredients (at least not in quantity) and I recommend that you focus on making simple recipes. Simple recipes mean that base mix consist of 3 to 5 ingredients that are more or less available at the grocery store and of course they catch fish.

Boilie base mix described in this post does not fall into the category of simple mixes, but you can try using some of the ingredients in your mixes or use my recipe described below. Because I make boilies by hand I do not use a boilie sausage gun (i had it and i sold it) and I also very rarely use boilie roller. So I don’t know how this mix works with these tools for making boilies.

Boilie base mix recipe

Recipe for one kilogram (1000 gram/gm/g) boilie base mix.

  1. Polenta: 38% or 380g or 13.4 ounce or 0.84 pound
  2. Buckwheat flour: 20% or 200g or 7.1 ounce or 0.44 pound
  3. Supergold 60 (60% maize protein): 20% or 200g or 7.1 ounce or 0.44 pound
  4. Bird seeds mix (: 7% or 70g or 2.5 ounce or 0.15 pound
  5. Krill meal (antartic): 5% or 50g or 1.8 ounce or 0.11 pound
  6. Herring meal: 5% or 50g or 1.8 ounce or 0.11 pound
  7. Blood powder (purified): 3% or 30g or 1.1 ounce or 0.07 pound
  8. Brewer’s yeast: 2% or 20g or 0.7 ounce or 0.04 pound

Conclusion

The combinations of ingredients to make a boilie base mix are enormous. All you have to do is research and test different ingredients to make the bait stand out from the competition. Most importantly, keep the ingredients in a cool, dark place and I recommend buying the ingredients as much as you need. Old, moldy, rotten and expired flour and other ingredients are not suitable for fish and aquatic life (you probably wouldn’t eat it yourself).

As usual, when I get to the fishing swim, I first mix the groundbait (meanwhile, the groundbait is slowly moisturizing) and then throw in a fishing spot small amount of bait (corn, boilie, pellet,…) with a spod, fishing catapult or throwing stick. In the meantime, when I am assembling a fishing rod, rigs, bait, rig system…, free bait attracts fish without unnecessary danger to them (monofilament, fishing lead, fishing hook, rig tube, hooklink, …).

Someone was looking for food on this rotting trunk, probably a woodpecker. For someone waste for someone important for survival. Nature took care of everything.

I know it doesn’t look like a super perfect tied carp rig from some famous fishing magazine or video from internet but the rig works and that’s enough for me.

FIrst mirror carp and…….

…… very soon another a little bigger mirror carp 🐟😎.

Some don’t have any feel with fish or they don’t care about our water friends. Please take your time and fight the fish slowly and not at all power to pull the fish out of the water. Because we go fishing to enjoy nature, catch fish, be they big or small, they all deserve the same fish care respect. We need to look to the future for fish to be healthy and in best shape. I’m just wondering who wants to catch a crippled carp, even if it’s 40 kg or 80 pound or more. I definitely don’t πŸ‘ŽπŸ‘ŽπŸ‘Ž.

Proper carp care is important for carp as well as for the future of fishing.

On the carpy menu today: a little amount of tigernuts, corn, can of sweet corn, groundbait mix, crushed boilies, sweet pellets and liquid csl .

Any kind of garbage does not belong to nature (these also include monofilament or braid pieces that fishermen cut), so everyone who brings with them should also take with them and throw away in the dedicated trash can!

I picked up that trash (and other trash I found) and took it home and dumped it in the trash can (just a reminder, I don’t need any medals and compliments, anyone who appreciates nature and hopes for a better future would do it).

The last hour to finish fishing today. Fingers crossed 🀞🐟 .

The buckets and other fishing accessories are empty and partially cleared (finally is cleaned under running water at home, not to transfer any fish diseases to other lake, pond, river,…), which means that the fishing day is over for today..

The last rays of the day are still trying to illuminate the sky through some clouds. The singing of the birds slowly slows down and the lake slowly goes into its nightly rhythm. For a few moments I still admire this beauty of nature and then go home hoping to visit this beautiful lake soon.


For the record I have no deal with anyone or any company. I buy what I want with my own money.
