Boilies And Dough Baits The straightforward Quick Way!
* Chances are you’ll not have considered making your own successful ‘homemade’ fishing bait, before – but there is a very simple and straightforward ‘short-cut’ that ANYONE can use! * Many fishing bait companies especially here in the UK, supply proprietary bait ‘base mixes.’ These are just a mix of dry powders that by testing and fishing trials have been proven to catch fish very well and consistently. When mixed with simply water or eggs, they’ll bind together and roll into bait balls well, and are designed to make highly productive boilies too. These ‘base mixes’ are absolutely ideal for a beginner to make use of, (with great confidence,) to begin making their own homemade carp and catfishing baits! It is rather easy indeed to use a packet of powders which just need the addition of water (or eggs should you prefer,) to make successful dough and paste baits, (and boilies,) or ‘packbaits.’ This way a bait making beginner need not learn about bait ingredients flavours etc and still make their very own bait that work successfully, but be warned, when you get used to making these and catching using them, you will want to know much more about making very effective baits! These baits will often have recommended flavours and other attractor ingredients listed on the back of the bag, that compliment the taste, smell and effects of the bait mix. This stuff have been tested so you realize you possibly can add these with confidence. When you’ve had a couple of tries in the kitchen mixing these baits and really gone out and caught some good fish on them your confidence will grow fast! These base mixes with often come in a 16 ounce bag or 1 kilogram bag. Firstly, add the recommended amounts of dry added attractor ingredients to your base mix powders by placing these all in a big strong bag. Blow into this bag to fill it with air and tie the highest! Shake the bag until the powders are well distributed. The powders can have a pleasant even colour. The straightforward way to combine these powders is to initially start with cracking four large or medium hen (or other) eggs into a large bowl or container. Then you add the recommended amount of liquid concentrated flavour, or and other additives to the eggs and whisk these well. Always add your DRY powders to the WET liquids. Do that gradually! Will probably be a very great help for future reference if you write down the actual amount of dry powders you actually add to the eggs etc to achieve a mouldable dough. E.g. 5 heaped serving spoons of dry powders may be required for a specific mix. Noting this means you will get very much faster production, because you may then just add your 5 heaped spoonfuls to your 4 eggs, knowing this combination is just right to make your dough. Knowing this from mixing the first bag of 16 ounce or 1 kilogram bag may even let you know what number of pounds or kilograms of actual finished dough or boilie etc bait you may get from each bag, per pound or kilogram of dry mix. Also you may reduce the stickiness by adding more dry powders or for those who run out, ordinary white flour, ground rice, maize meal or semolina will help. If your mix is simply too dry you’ll be able to add another egg with a very small amount of flavour etc to the combination. It’s best to make the mix into a ball of dough and put it into a plastic bag in the fridge and let it ‘soak-up’ the eggs, liquid flavours and attractors for a number of hours, before rolling into bait balls. If you’re making dough balls, just keep the combo in the fridge for just a few days until using, or label the bait’s date, name and attractors and amounts used and freeze your bait. This may occasionally sound like work, but then if your new bait ‘empties’ the lake on your next trip, you definitely need EXACT details of the bait recorded otherwise you might regret it! Chances are you’ll find your dough baits get eaten away by smaller fish than the large carp, catfish, bass or trout etc you’re really fishing and waiting for. ‘Boilies’ are a fast answer although there are certain advantages and disadvantages to truly boiling your dough balls in water or indeed steam, by reducing attraction and other factors. But boilies do last longer on the hook, and ‘free baits’ last longer in water and can be used for ‘pre-baiting’ perhaps feeding the swim the night before actually fishing, for instance. Preparation is the key in making boilies quickly and with ease and the actual practice of making them will speed up immensely and there are a lot of ‘short-cuts’ that can assist you. When you’ve a ready ball of dough and this normally will be about the size of a grapefruit (based on a 4 egg plus dry powder mix,) you possibly can begin pulling off pieces and rolling these into balls. Boilies are sometimes perfectly round but this is not needed. (‘Readymade’ boilies are rolled by machine.) The practice of rolling perfectly round boilies comes from the unique use of catapults within the UK, used to fire round boilies out to ‘free bait’ swims at distance, accurately. A fast approach to make dough baits prior to boiling is to roll the dough ball flat on a cutting board and then cut into small pieces using a sharp bread knife. This makes a lot of small irregular shaped baits and these work Colorful Tape In Human Hair Extensions Malaysian Straight Virgin Hair Pink 100 Human Hair Tape In Extensions very effectively! Another way is to tug of pieces of dough off and roll them into sausages a couple of centimetre in width. Roll 5 sausages, lay them parallel on a cutting board and use a sharp knife to cut through the 5 lengths at centimetre spaces so you finish up with numerous ‘pellet’ shaped baits. These also work very well! When mixing boilies by hand it’s a good idea to place a small amount of vegetable on your hands if the combo is sticking to them. Rolling by hair extensions balmain hand may be very time consuming and labour intensive. It is far better to use the above methods or obtain tools to speed up the process. Obtain an empty mastic sealant application gun, clean it well and cut a hole at the tip of it to about 1 to 2 centimetres in diameter. By making your dough slightly softer and wetter and feeding cylinder shapes of dough into the top of the mastic gun and squeezing the handle, bait sausages in 1 to 2 centimetre widths may be extruded far more quickly than by hand. These can be chopped as above into 1 or 2 centimetre sized ‘pellet’ shaped baits, or hand rolled, or rolled using a specialist ‘rolling table,’ available from leading fishing tackle and bait suppliers. Prepare a big pan half full of boiling water. You should utilize the lake water from where you fish lake water, or use ‘filtered water’ which has removed your mains tap water chlorine, fluorine etc.) As it heats up you can stir in some dry mixture which will ‘flavour’ the water and add some honey, or molasses, or curry powder, or condensed milk, or fructose, or yeast extract, sea salt, or fish oils etc. Whatever you are feeling like experimenting with, at this stage can really boost results by making the boiled congealed ‘skin’ of your boilies far more attractive instead of ‘sealing-in’ the attractive goodies in your baits! The point of boiling is to create a really thin ‘protective skin’ and never to boil all of the attraction out of your bait! Using a chip fryer speeds things up as you can place more baits into the boiling water at once and remove all of them at the same time. This provides you way more control! This is very handy and avoids problems like your pan boiling over or having some baits floating about being boiled for 5 minutes while others get boiled for just seconds. If you’re undecided, it is best to remove you baits the moment they start to float! (‘Protein’ based baits are at their best when not boiled in any respect but they can be boiled for maybe 20 or 30 seconds instead of minutes.) Make certain you might have a number of paper towels or clean towels or paper to put your wet expanded baits onto to dry off your boilie baits. After about 6 to 24 hours depending on how warm it is where they’re being dried, they can be placed into labelled polythene bags and used immediately or frozen for future use. I’ve found that freshly hot boilies kept warm in a preheated flask and hair extensions balmain used straight from boiling do seem more attractive… The author has many more fishing and bait ‘edges’ up his sleeve.
