You can make your own carp fishing boilies easily and making carp boilies and paste is very much like making bread dough or cake mix! The traditional method is to have two parts namely your liquid and your powdered boilie or paste base mixture.
The dry powder and liquid mixtures you create to form dough and paste and boilies can be very simple, or as complex as you like but must be as potent as you can create them! This bait article is just a snippet from a 7 year study on how to make homemade baits of many formats that defeat top readymade carp baits!
Your bait liquid mix can be anything that stimulates feeding, including for example liquid foods, sweeteners, enhancers, flavours and more plus traditionally you would include liquid eggs in your mix at for example 6 eggs per kilogram of dry powder mixture. Your dry powder mix should be as potent as possible and personally I avoid any carbohydrates as these are low in true feed triggering substances; I choose the most potent substances possible including soluble protein additives!
The potency of your bait liquids and powders is absolutely critical and makes all the difference to success or failure in triggering feeding responses; it is a hidden aspect of bait many homemade bait makers do not focus upon enough but ultimately the amount of internal impacts your bait elements have upon fish the better your results will be! In a suitable container gradually mix your liquids mixture to your powders to form a dough that can be formed into individual baits of any shape or size desired, and the more unique and different to rolled baits they are the better your results will be!
The name boilies is a word summing up the fact that these are bait baits formed by boiling of dough or paste baits to make them firmer or more resilient and longer lasting. Originally paste or dough baits were made using water or other liquids and then it was discovered that including eggs made paste last longer as egg is not very soluble and then of course the idea of boiling egg baits created more resilient baits.
Truly attractive boilies attract the attentions of pest species whether they are hard or soft or boiled or are dough paste baits by the profile they are composed of. There are great benefits to attracting pest species whichever bait format you use because they attract attention to your baits and create a beneficial competitive feeding scenario that produces more hooked fish!
Usually anglers think that having a resilient boilie is best but after years of testing in many situations I concluded that the best results come on baits which only last a few hours intact which actively break down! Boilies which last 24 hours or longer are actually less effective in most situations because the principle soluble and water reactive substances which stimulate and attract have already been lost!
Winter and cold water boilies must by definition be very soluble in order to react with water to form a concentration gradient for fish to home in on and this is one aspect of homemade bait making we can seriously exploit in beating readymade baits at any time of year! Many anglers add a flavour or flavours to their baits often for their own confidence, but a well designed bait requires zero flavour as it ionizes water so supremely effectively anyway, however flavours and their individual components have an important place especially in pre-conditioning fish to hook baits, but see Baitbigfish or my biography for more information!
