How To Make Homemade Carp Baits Defeat Any Readymade Boilies In Summer Or Winter!
You can beat any readymade boilie with unique homemade baits; this is a fact! Do you use bait dips, glugs and soaks with your readymade boilies? If you do add these to any bait then they are not optimised to become super concentrated solution which is the primary format that carp most strongly respond to! If you need to add liquid to your bait then your bait is not genuinely optimised for performance and is in fact pitifully under optimised! Heated baits which are bound and sealed with egg are a great method to actively reduce your potential catches! Read on to discover the truth and catch more fish!
Use of liquid egg in readymade baits is the most common potential danger signal available to carp to be wary of! Also egg inhibits bait digestion in multiple ways. Liquid egg and egg powder and egg albumin also make baits massively less optimised for success as they literally make them insoluble thus defeating the most powerful characteristic of any bait!
On waters where boilies are used first time, the fish often do not realise they are food because they give off such pitiful concentrations of stimulatory solution due to being heated and sealed by egg! On waters new to boilies I and my friends have well confirmed that the massively superior method to achieve instant results is to use paste and other unheated baits and not to use heated sealed baits. This just shows how bad heated baits are as a bait format! Time and again I have found the most instant way to establish new recipes of baits to a water is by using unheated baits; and not by using heated boilies!
The success of this has been so striking to me that when added to every other factor and reason I have discovered in what makes baits truly optimised for success I no longer consider successful bait as a solid at all. I now think of bait purely as a liquid not solid paradigm! When I think of bait I do not think of a solid ball or barrel or anything like these concepts because these are irrelevant. What matters is what reacts with the water, the potency of solution in active reaction. This is what matters; fish swim in solution and are surrounded by solution at all times.
They detect everything in their environment via solution. Water supporting fish is a complex solution of dissolved minerals, micro organisms, suspended algae and zooplankton, suspended decaying vegetative and animal debris, silt in solution and soil and chemical running off the land, acid rain etc; you name it!
Water fish exist in is solution of many things and is never just pure water, yet so many bait tests are carried out in tanks with pure water tainted perhaps with the toxins chlorine and fluorine, and heavy metals and other tap water contaminants. Fish are evolved to detect opportunities and threats in solution and through solution. When fish get feeding hard they are very often either surrounded by clouds of silt or suspended particulate matter stirred up by the movements of fish. How many times do anglers realise that their colourful little hook bait is often covered by silt etc as fish root around the area and stir up bottom silt?
The tone and colour of baits is most often totally irrelevant to success. By contrast it is exactly how a bait actively becomes a concentrated feed triggering solution which is of staggering importance! Solution is what matters most and this is just one reason why concentrated flavours work, because one thing they do is enable many bait substances to become solution easier! (Anyone who says flavours do not work has not figured this out yet!)
On far too many occasions I have observed a fish swim right past a bright colourful readymade bait which has been heated (sealed) in some way, without it even inspecting it. But such fish have responded incredibly well to alternative extra soluble homemade baits which are dark and drab in colour and tone and are notably unheated and made very specifically to produce an especially potent intensely stimulating soluble solution!
For me sight feeding is a very definitely far down the scale of importance when compared to stimulating carp feeding via olfaction, chemoreception and other hormonal and biochemical electrical methods of stimulating fish by leveraging optimally concentrated solution!
One massive advantage making homemade carp fishing baits has over the vast number of readymade baits is they can be optimised for potency and maximised for their capacity to turn into super concentrated feed-triggering solution. Wherever an advert states that such and such a boilie is optimised for performance never believe it. I a bait is heated it cannot easily become solution therefore it is not optimised to become the most highly potent and concentrated solution to trigger fish. For a bait to be truly optimised for performance it has to easily become solution and by this I mean the materials of the bait become solution and do not just leak off a bit of smell or taste, but constant clouds of concentrated solution.
It is easily possible for a person to make totally uncooked hard highly soluble feed-triggering baits which are optimised to become the most potent concentrated solution. Such baits easily out-fish all heated baits. The number of my ebooks readers around the world consistently beating leading readymade boilies by making such baits is proof enough. If I know I am fishing against people fishing whole readymade boilies then the last thing I would consider using is heated readymade boilie baits. I will make unique optimised for potent solution baits and avoid heating them in any way.
Think about it. It is far easier for bait companies to catch your eye with colourful balls and claims of all kinds of features such as the kinds of nutritional ingredients and additives used in their bait. Yet if these baits are heated they are not optimised to become exactly what they need to be in order to work to maximum efficiency as concentrated solution! Simply soaking baits in liquids is not an adequate answer to what is basically a reduced potency bait format. Adding a coating of paste around a boilie is such a joke too as you might as well be using paste all along.
Having to add paste as a covering to heated bait simply proves how much heated baits are not in truth optimised for performance!
All those readymade baits sold with liquid dips to improve their impacts merely demonstrate that heated baits are a drastically under optimised bait format that actually reduce your catches. When you have been using totally unheated baits tested against heated boilies for long enough as I have, then the truth is so crystal clear you will have no wish whatsoever to fish boilies ever again. I view using readymade boilies as a massive waste of time compared to using uniquely potent unheated baits. But when I refer to potency I do mean in regards to unusually high levels of biological activity and other aspects of substances working internally inside fish once consumed or even better still, when solution from them initially makes contact with fish receptors and instantly triggers feeding responses.
When you have had the practice and refinements to make unheated homemade baits that last any chosen timeframe, be it 3 or 6 hours or over 20 hours, you always have the advantage over steamed or boiled baits. I have used unheated hard potently soluble homemade baits on waters packed with crayfish, and had instant results far and away exceeding the catches achieved using boiled and steamed readymade baits.
I do not even like the word boilie now because of the degree that I have found this word by definition to mean an under optimised, time wasting, and catch reducing bait format!
Optimised bait is really not about food and feeding fish, but keeping the most incredibly potent levels of concentrated solution at a maximum in the water most consistently to keep fish coming back for more, while not providing many kilograms of food which may satiate fish before they get hooked.
Personally I find it much more sane to fish using a low volume of optimised homemade baits than sit for hours using a bed of readymade baits waiting for them to become solution. Years ago many of us older anglers would use a pint of bait for a weekend and yet catch as many fish as anglers using 10 or 20 kilograms of boilies today. When your bait is optimised you really can expect to get bites within minutes of casting out. The very first time I used a totally new unique potency optimised for concentrated solubility unheated bait, I had literally just let go of the rod casting and placing it in the rest before it produced a run.
The best manifestation of bait in solution is when you achieve multiple attempts by fish to take your hook baits. This scenario provides the maximum multiple chances of hooking fish no matter how rig shy or experienced fish may be. To achieve this scenario heated baits pale into insignificance compared to the most refined and most potently optimised unheated baits.
It is like the actual additives, extracts and ingredients etc that you use in your baits. Hemp oil sold and used in fishing gives you a predominantly oily experience. By contrast the most stimulating, most biologically potent hemp oil will actually crackle on your tongue. But this is not a form sold for fishing bait use; it is highly expensive and I had to make extra efforts to specially source this and many other substances that bait companies do not sell. When substances such as this especially powerful hemp oil are so incredibly potent, it only requires a small amount to make fish feed where other hemp oils fail! Potency of each and every part of your bait is so incredibly important!
You can design homemade baits exactly tailored to be optimised to deliver the most highly concentrated biologically active potency solution possible. This is exactly where my focus on making my homemade baits to beat all readymade heated baits is and it really needs to be your focus too if you want to stop wasting many hours every time you go fishing.
Remember, if you need to dip or soak a bait to make it work better then your bait is by definition under optimised and under maximised for success so get into making your own truly optimised for performance homemade baits instead; and find out more about how to out fish any heated readymade boilie available!
