When you need some essential inspiration to liven-up your catch rate (or literally stop those blank sessions in their tracks,) really manipulate fish feeding behaviour by exploiting different aspects of your baits; read on to discover how…
For both winter and summer conditions why not try combining high-attract tiger nut pellets, hemp pellets, bloodworm pellets, spicy shrimp pellets, spirulina and betaine pellets and CSL pellets all together. This provides a very wide range of hugely well proven carp feeding nutritional stimuli and attraction…
You might try adding to this combination a mixture of Minamino, salmon protein, L030 fish protein and betaine HCL, to dampen your pellets and seriously boost their performance and speed their effects. Of course adding this and similar mixtures to expander pellets and shelf-life readymade baits for example is awesome too!
When using readymade shelf-life and freezer baits, why not exploit their matching base mixes offered and make ground baits to your own personal taste. You could boost those attractors and liquids etc that are recommended for your base mixes, and use the mixture as ground baits that will release soluble substances far better and far quicker than conventional boilies and many pellets. Upon introduction this will instantly provide excellent levels of carp attraction into your swim.
Try boosting bait attraction with hydrolysed salmon extract from Carpfishingpellets (online,) green lipped mussel extract, liver powder, blood powder, Robin Red, meat meal, CSL meal, ground crushed hemp, brewers yeast, poultry protein meal, carp pellet powder, betaine and lecithins for instance. Or simply add Ccmoore Red Venom or Feedstim XP, dried shrimps, crushed hemp, lecithins and betaine, to your own homemade boilie base mixes. (Perhaps try these and others to produce your own very unique pastes and ground baits too!)
For those who really like to do their own thing, then perhaps use a mixture of carp pellet powder from Carpfishingpellets as an highly nutritious base, with CSL meal, crushed hemp, predigested fish meal, brewers yeast and betaine, and liquid liver for example; this will really work. The real beauty of making homemade bait is you can control the cost and also the levels of the additives and ingredients that have really significant impacts on fishes systems and responses. Add Talin protein sweetener and liquid intense sweeteners (in a combination,) plus butyric acid, and it will do wonders in boilie, paste, and ground baits etc.
The course texture of tiger nut meal is great for both cold water and warmer water conditions allowing carp attraction substances to disperse outwards very effectively. Using poultry protein meal in baits will hit both carp and big catfish in just the right spots!
If you are worried about binding – why use what everyone seems to use,(i.e. Vitalin,) when carp and cats and all too well aware of its potential dangers now; so use something unique like carp pellet powder in boilies, pastes, method and ground bait mixes. Carp pellets are after all formulated for carp (not dogs,) so which product do you think is more effective and more suitably digestible and usable to carp in getting that all important edge!?
In terms of soluble attraction, if you use a cheap 50 percent soya and 50 percent semolina boilie base mix for instance, do yourself a massive favour. When your chosen liquid flavours have leached out there will be far less to initiate carp feeding response. So add some serious extra incentives for your fish to feed, such as bulking it out with a reliable base mix to make it cheaper such as Meteor or Odyssey XXX from Ccmoore. Or simply add liver powder, green lipped mussel extract, brewers yeast and dried blood powders for instance; more goodies please says Mr Carp!
