maize cooking for fishing


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

Till next time …

…… tight lines and wet nets!
