Excellent natural bait for the vast majority of fish

Preparation:

  1. Soak hemp seed covered with water for 24 hours.
  2. After 24 hours, put the seeds covered with water in a pan and boil
  3. Simmer for approximately 30 minutes.
  4. Hemp seeds are cooked when most of the seeds have split and when little white shoots are seen.
  5. The seeds are now ready for fishing.
Hemp is a great way to attract fish (carp, roach, bream, barbel, tench, chub, …) any time of the year.

Hemp seeds can be kept in the refrigerator for a few days (3 to 5 days maximum) or frozen and taken out of the chest when you need them for fishing.

Natural protein fishing bait.

When the hemp seeds are cooked there is no need to add anything as the seeds are already attractive enough for fish (high in proteins, natural oils, feed stimulators and attractants).

I most often add hemp oil to the warm seeds for even more attraction.



most of the hemp seeds have split

Conclusion

Cooked seeds can be used in spod mix, a great addition to ground bait mix, hook bait, It can be used on its own, etc.

My opinion is that this is one of the very rare baits that you can cook in your wife’s kitchen (talk to your wife first anyway 😉) without stinking up the kitchen with unpleasant aromas, such as cooking chickpeas, corn, fish meal boilies with the aroma of squid, octopus, liver, monster crab and so on.

The smell of cooked seeds is very pleasant, no wonder fish love it.

This time I went river fishing in the afternoon with a minimal amount of fishing gear and used earthworms I dug along the river as bait. Earthworms were very easy to find. I used a very simple attachment (lead for the pencil drop shot technique and a larger hook for the big barbel). I didn’t even expect any special catch, maybe what kind of chub was the day more than successful for me, as I caught 8 chubs and 1 barbel. All the fish are released back into the river.

Enjoying autumn colors by the river, watching the last autumn flowers, bees, listening to birds, breathing fresh air, … and waiting for a fish bite is for me relaxation, calmness, inspiration, meditation in this stressful world.

“The best time to go fishing is when you can get away,” Robert Traver.


I was looking for earthworms for bait first.

I think most fish couldn’t resist this delicious protein snack 😎.

Ready to cast.

After about a few minutes, this beauty was caught. one quick video and then the chub swam back into the river.

A few pieces of basic fishing gear I had in my backpack. Quite enough for successful fishing on the river.

Even this young chub could not resist the delicious (for fish) earthworms. I don’t know how he managed to eat such a bite.

Are you looking for a cheap fishing rod for spinning or are you just a beginner in this fishing technique? I think this is a great rod not only for beginners but also for those who have been fishing for a long time. Despite the fact that a cosmetic defect is found on this fishing rod, I am not sorry about the purchase, as I have already found such cosmetic defects in more expensive fishing rods.

PROS

  • price
  • light in weight
  • sensitive tip
  • guides without inner lining
  • nice design

CONS

  • only available in some fishing shops (Europe); at least I did not find it in other countries outside the Europe
