DESCRIBING A BOLT RIG
The Bolt Rig is a term used to describe the way a particular set up is fished.
When using the bolt rig, you use a peice of fishing line 10 – 20 inches which allows the carp the freedom to move away after it has taken the bait into its mouth. When the carp moves away the hook length tightens up to the weight/lead causing the hook to prick the carps mouth, making the carp panic as it feels this prick and bolt off at speed, dragging the weight/lead along with it, consequently this drives the hook home and the carps own power against the weight/lead has caused the carp to hook itself.
The bolt rig is probably the most successful method of fishing a bottom bait, with the self-hooking mechanism decreasing the chance of the carp ejecting the hook, as the more the carp “bolts” away, the firmer the hook hold.
Animal Planet at 8:00pm e/p SUNDAY September 30th, Off The Hook Extreme Catches, Season 1 Episode 10 “Carpocalypse”
Americans are known for their ingenuity and when it comes to fishing we’re no different. Animal Planet’s host of the new series “Off The Hook Extreme Catches” traveled across the USA and dared to seek out the most ingenious ways Americans are putting fish on the hook!
From kayaking for bass down treacherous rapids to fishing from a jet-ski he has uncovered some really productive ways to fish.
This season of “Off The Hook Extreme Catches” comes to and end tonight with the seasons finale that’s sure to get us Carp guys excited! Tonight’s episode reminds me of some old movie called ”Apocalypse Now” this episode is rightly called “Carpocalypse Now”! Why, host Eric Young goes after the invasive species known as the Asian Carp, and when I say invasive I mean these fish have invaded out waters and have become a nuisance to fishermen everywhere. There’s not too many redeeming qualities about these carp except they make good fertilizer, and if you’re starving you’d have no problem catching one.
In this episode Eric meets up with a bunch of Carp Fishermen named The Peoria Carp Hunters and has some down-home fun with these critters! Talk about shooting fish in a barrel watch em water ski down the Illinois River with implements of destruction in hand, as these invasive Carp meet their makers on the end of a spear or tennis racket!
As an added bonus to the finale episode of “Off The Hook” watch as we put remote control boats to the task of catching some fish too!
The show airs on Animal Planet at 8:00pm e/p SUNDAY September 30th, Off The Hook Extreme Catches, Season 1 Episode 10 “Carpocalypse”

Underwater video of carp and a tipped boilie. See more underwater carp video’s at my website www.underwatersecrets.co.uk Please add your comments, I love feedback and new ideas to video. The carp appears to pick out the tipped boilie time after time before being caught.
In fishing there’s so many new things out there for the sake of conversation we’re going to call this one a “Gizmo”. Now although these have been around a while it’s always refreshing to stay up to date with good products. Anyone not familiar with method feeders wouldn’t have a clue what method feeders are. Here’s an introduction to method feeder’s for carp fishing, watch the video’s too, if you’ve never heard of it or never tried it you are going to want to go out a get one today!
Catching Carp with a Handy Gizmo called a Method Feeder
Preston Quick release method mould
Developed to allow perfect loading of groundbait onto the Preston In-line Flat Method Feeder, the Quick Release Method Mould quickly forms a perfect feeder full of groundbait or pellets every time. This ensures more accurate casting due to the constant size of the loaded feeder.
The release button on the bottom ensures that the feeder is ejected consistently, without the frustration of leaving the groundbait in the mould.
Designed to be used in conjunction with the Preston In-line Flat Method Feeder.
How to make your own paste for course/carp fishing in just a few minutes. Extras can be added along the way for extra effect. So how do you choose which ingredients to use, which ratios of these to use and why? The first step is commonly practicality; can you put these things together into a dough or paste, to produce a boilie mix that will bind together and roll well? To produce a boilie from various ingredients without instructions on ratios of each ingredient takes some preliminary testing. So it is wise to start by using one large hen’s egg (or similar), mixed with a small amount of any liquid ingredients, to confirm that your test dry ingredients when mixed actually bind and roll well into balls to make boiled baits. If not, add more egg, a small amount of vegetable oil or ‘binding material’.
Ideally start by putting the carp’s dietary needs first when making bait, and begin with the bulk ‘whole protein food’ content of ingredients at 25 % to 50 % of your preliminary 100 % dry mixture. Such examples used could be combinations of some of the following: caseins, lactalbumin, fish meals, meat meals, whey protein.
Usually you will require a binding material to hold the protein food together in the bait. This may require using dry binding ingredients like semolina, wheat gluten, wheat flour, soya flour etc for up to 50 % of the mix, necessary for many types of coarse bird food meals, shellfish meals, meat and fish meals. Different bait materials will alter this approximate ratio, but use the ratio that rolls first! And increase the protein content from there (Using eggs / egg powder to bind your bait, adds a great nutritional added profile as a complete protein food.)
Some of the most effective attraction of your bait comes from the water soluble fraction of particular ingredients used. Ingredients with this characteristic content could constitute 10 % up to 30 % of the mix. Making a resilient practical boilie mix may require the addition or reduction of only one ingredient. Some of the best baits you will ever discover are made by this trial and error process. The solubility of ingredients is especially recommended if an ingredient has high protein value, such as sodium and calcium caseinates, calf milk replacers, whole milk powder, yeast powder, hydrolyzed fish and shellfish proteins etc…
Some are used at much lower levels, e.g. 0.2 % to 6 % ; e.g., hydrolyzed fish protein, hydrolyzed spirulina extract, squid extract, anchovy extract, green crab / lobster / scallop / shrimp / oyster / baby clam extracts, green lip mussel extract etc. These are also effective as most are extremely quickly and efficiently digested with immediate benefits that the carp can feel.
I prefer to fresh freeze baits, or ‘air dry’ them naturally, or preserve them in a flavor / amino acid / supplement compound, rather than using a chemical preservative in the bait like ascorbic acid.
Carp require oils (essential fatty acids) but only in small amounts e.g., up to 5 % of your total dry mix. Oily fish meals and shellfish meals are already rich in these, as are flax seed, hemp seed, sesame seeds, salmon oil, cod liver oil, crustacean oil, etc. To meet minimum carp dietary requirements try adding perhaps around 1 milliliter to 3 milliliters of a good quality nutritional oil per egg, (maximum,) depending on oil level in the dry mix.
At times of year when water temperatures drop below 55 Fahrenheit / 13 Degrees Celsius, it’s sensible to drop the oil levels used or use emulsified oil. It also pays to reduce some of your ‘whole protein food’ content and substitute it with e.g., 3 ounces of wheat germ; this is a proven method of improving the biological conversion of your bait inside the carp by making your bait more ‘carp digestible’
Carp love to crunch food and in doing so send out all kinds of feeding signals to other carp, allowing attractive food particles to pass out of the gills.
Nutritional ingredients can be used for this effect, e.g. bird foods – ‘Robin Red’, ‘Red Factor’,‘Nectarblend’, Ground ‘Red Band’ pigeon food, prepared ground mixed nuts and seeds; prepared tiger nuts and hempseed, millet, egg – biscuit myna – bird rearing food, niger seeds, ‘RRR’, ground birdseeds ‘Ce De’, ‘PTX’, ground insects, dried larvae, coarse kelp meal etc.
Also used are crushed oyster shell and eggshell. These also allow bait to release attractors faster, putting more out to attract carp quicker and more effectively, especially in lower water temperatures. They also help the fish to eat more bait by helping them pass it through their systems faster.
Test each individually because their properties vary. Use, e.g., 0.5 ounces per pound for shell through to e.g., 2 ounces per pound of course kelp meal, to e.g., 3 ounces per pound of ‘Robin Red’, ground birdseed e.g., 6 ounces per pound, up to 8 ounces per pound of ‘Nectar Blend’.
Here are some examples of recognized ‘nutritional’ bird food ingredients:
Other ingredients are used to change resilience, texture, attractor leak-off, e.g., milk powders, whole milk, ‘Vitamealo’ at, e.g., 4 ounces per pound), or in a very soluble bait to bind it ‘tighter’ e.g., whey gel at 3 ounces per pound, or make it harder, e.g. blood powder at e.g. 4 ounces per pound, egg albumin at e.g., 2 ounces per pound, whole egg powder at, e.g., 3 ounces per pound, or whey gel, e.g., 1 ounce per pound.
To avoid silt / to make baits more buoyant, include ingredients like sodium caseinate, e.g. 5 ounces per pound, or shrimp meal, e.g. 3 ounces per pound or krill meal at e.g., 3 ounces per pound.
Vitamins and minerals are great attractors too, being essential for carp health and growth. Many of the above extracts supply these, but they leach out of bait very fast. Adding black strap molasses, betaine hydrochloride to the mix and as liquid soak really help.
Other ingredients can be added in very low levels to enhance your bait, or give it an ‘extra special attractive note’ e.g., 1 teaspoon per pound, of powdered taste enhancer, sea salt, or sweeteners like sodium saccharin and fishing company proprietary brands liquid and powdered sweeteners with no ‘chemical back taste’.
When you mix new ingredients together always test your mixture first. Try using one egg as a binder, to see if you have your ratios right for practical binding and rolling purposes. Always prepare your wet ingredients first and add dry ingredients to the wet ones gradually as you become accustomed to the ingredients you’re using, this part will become simple!
You can refine your bait’s nutritional content as you become familiar with getting practical bait together that works and catches carp. You will soon find it’s very easy to make all kinds of baits, and your secret bait armory will fill you with confidence and your photograph albums with big carp!
