Don’t throw away the water in which you have boiled boilie

In the water in which we boiled the boilies there are a few traces and flavours of the ingredients from which the boilies are made. Most anglers use different types of seeds (corn/maize, hemp, tiger nuts, wheat, barley, buckwheat, chickpeas, lentils, bird seed mix and many more) for fishing, so this is a great opportunity to soak seeds in the water after boiling boilies.

The process of soaking and cooking the seeds is very easy:

First put the desired amount of seeds into the water but make sure that the seeds are covered with water (ratio 1 : 2, seeds : water). It may happen that the seeds absorb all the water in a few hours. Depending on the type of seed, as some absorb more water than others. In this case just add water and mix the seeds with spoon for better water absorption. It is very important not to cover the container in which we soak the seeds (various gases come from seeds). The time of soaking the seeds is very different (from 0 to 48 hours), it depends on the type of seed. We can also add various additives to the water, but I don’t think that’s even necessary.



One example: a tiger nut is soaked for at least 24 hours (best 48 hours), lentils are soaked for 1-3 hours.

Once the seeds are soaked it is time to cook. Also the cooking time of seeds is very different. Some seeds are cooked after just a few minutes (wheatbuck), and some take more than 40 minutes (tiger nuts) to cook.



How do we know if the seeds are cooked? Very easy to check by taking one or two seeds out of the water and trying to cut it in half with your fingernails or fork. If it goes very easily apart it is cooked. There are some exceptions such as the tiger nut, which is also cooked with a fingernail or fingers quite difficult to halve.

When the seeds are cooked, leave them in hot water and cover with a lid. When the seeds have cooled, they usually absorb additional liquid, so it is important that the seeds are covered with water. When the seeds cool, remove the lid on the container.

If you do not go fishing in the next few days (of course we need to store them in a cool place or refrigerator), store the seeds in the freezer until the next fishing. Before use, just put them out of the freezer about 12 hours before.

In this way we can prepare excellent fishing bait in an easy and cheap way. Now that we have boilies and partickles we are ready to go fishing.

Tight lines!

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, …).

The Fishing Religion restaurant is open 😋😋😋😎.



Fishing rods waiting for action. I hope the swans have left me some fishing luck 🤞🍀.

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 👎👎👎.

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

Additional fishing pleasure 🤩😊😋😋😋.



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.
