If you want to catch many more big fish then there are some exciting bait substances, fish senses, and vital energy and metabolism clues to help you attract more big fish to your hook baits! Far too many anglers ask themselves the wrong questions about fishing and baits that really are not that important! So begin by thinking more like a fish instead of an angler and get much better at asking yourself the most productive questions that bring success – and read on now!
So in the beginning when considering bait at all, why start of with bait itself at all when it is far more productive by starting off with taking a much better look at the fish?! Relatively very few anglers understand carp in detail so it is no surprise they have little idea how their baits might possibly work to attract fish to take baited hooks inside their mouths, but if you understood this imagine the power this provides you with over anglers with little or no knowledge or insight regarding this incredibly vital aspect of fishing.
Why be dependant on readymade boilies and pellets and exorbitantly-priced paste when there is no need whatever to blow your money away when you can make baits in the vast majority of cases as good if not much better?! It is in the interests of bait companies to make you dependant on their products and they use all kinds of sophisticated mans to achieve this but when you wake up and get better well-informed and make your own potently productive baits (of all forms,) you can seriously save yourself a fortune!
When it is you deciding your budget and costs of your bait, and deciding how they will work, how potent they will be, how different to normal they will be and how successful they will be and in what volumes at your own chosen price, then you really are a winner in so many ways, plus no-one will ever compete against you using the same baits as you ever again!
So set your own bait budget, cut your costs in advance and not let someone else decide your spending for you and save yourself a genuine fortune! Readymade baits cost so much each year or even per fishing session that undercutting these costs by making your own potent baits is very easy. Of course knowing significant details of things like how and why fish behave in the presence of substances they are sensitive to and so on, and how to exploit such things to get fish hooked on your own unique bait recipes repeatedly again and again is extremely productive!
Bait-making beginners can take many short-cuts by learning and avoiding the kinds of commonest mistakes that other bait-making anglers have made and then avoided themselves over the years through their own experience! Over the last 34 years of carp fishing I have had well over 80 percent of my own homemade baits work on many waters even from the first cast. Sure some waters demand bait changes and adjustments to be successful and these days this often is in regards to out-competing other baits as opposed to simply attracting fish!
Probably the commonest mistake bait-making beginners make is formulating a bait based on their personal opinions and own human perceptions of bait substances aromas, smells, tastes etc. The best way to avoid limiting success of your baits is to start with the fish and what they are most sensitive. Basing your baits on fish sensitivities is the most powerful starting point and this encourages you to think like a carp and not like an angler merely choosing a readymade bait flavour that thousands of others may have previously already exploited so massively reducing any competitive advantages.
Certain bait substances do necessarily not work on their own in water and need a bait carrier substance with which they can work synergistically to bring forth their most potent impacts on fish senses. However, many bait substances can be said to be very habit-forming and I include the essential amino acids and particular non-essential amino acids found in protein ingredients additives and liquids in this group too.
I am amazed at how many anglers feel they lack confidence in a bait if it has no strong discernible flavours or smell. Think about it; carp can sense substances down to a few parts in a billion and it will be very hard for the average carp angler to incorporate any substance in their bait that has no smell, taste or aroma or effect some sort of subtle electrical impact or difference on carp senses when in water for that matter that they will detect the presence of!
Carp can adapt all the time and sense new substances that are completely foreign to them and their environment and this is no surprise as this is how they have been able to evolve and exploit completely new potential food sources and monopolise them to supply their basic diet and vital energy needs in order to survive. Training carp to feed on your baits is just like training dogs using the rewards your baits offer that come in many forms in instant and more longer-lasting ways and these can be leveraged in creating more competitive baits with unique advantages over competing baits that my lack these benefits and rewards.
Your choices of baits substances will directly impact upon carp hormones released when being sensed and eaten, and the behaviours resulting from these releases – so you can have incredible power over carp and even manipulate if they will feed in frantic excited modes or in more leisurely and relaxed ways; but there is much more power in making baits than this!
