Homemade Boilies - Making Baits With Predigested Protein Ingredients

Predigested ingredients in dough / paste baits 'ground baits' and boilies are awesome!

When used as major ingredients in your homemade baits and free offerings, or even as a 'paste wrap' around your hook and bait, they give off incredibly attractive leak-off signals; catching very impressive numbers of big catfish and carp among many other species.

Here is an example of a predigested ingredients paste recipe I've caught very well on:

* 4 Ounces of predigested liver extract.

* 4 Ounces of predigested fish protein.

* 4 Ounces of fish meal.

* 4 Ounces of sodium caseinate. (You could add semolina for example if more binding effect is required.)

* 15 Milliliters of pure salmon oil.

* 4 Eggs.

Mix up the dough until it is a firm but pliable consistency, split up your dough for various uses. Use some as hook baits boilies or pastes; try rolling many pieces baits into 10 millimeter sized baits and 'air dry' them until they are firm.

Try regularly feeding your swim with these paste offerings, while fishing; they can often work wonders for great results!

You could keep some for use as paste hook baits, some for hook bait paste 'wraps,' and some for free offering bait balls. Paste baits are very productive fed into the swim near your hook baits, inside water soluble poly vinyl alcohol ('PVA') bags attached to your hook rig, or on 'stringers' made from the same soluble substance.

(You can freeze any bait you don't use short-term.)

On a very angling pressured fishery, I've had three 40 pound carp in 3 days using baits made on this principle. I've had fish feeding on them as I catapulted them in at 1, 2 or 3 or 5 baits at a time. (So as to not spook the fish!) I fed baits in every 10 to 20 minutes.

There was never any splashing of the surface as bait was thrown in and no 'bed' of baits on the bottom that might spook the fish. These paste baits were very quickly dissolved, but the smell of bait was constantly in the water, drawing in competing big fish.

Some commercial bait companies also sell baits that dissolve like this. You can soak them in your own attractors thus attracting instant attention to your hook baits. You can alter the time of 'free bait' total breakdown, for example, from 1 to 3 hours.

The aim is to achieve a smell and 'sedimentation' of bait in the water, but offer no 'free baits' to eat except your hook baits. This really forces the fish to eat your stimulated fish into eating your hook baits; it is an extremely effective technique!

You can mix and match using attractor-soaked fish meal pellets with hemp pellets, for example. Or make 'ground bait' pastes using your boilie base mix or in conjunction with various prepared bird foods and proprietary bread crumb based 'ground baits,' with your added attractors.

The other advantage of these methods, are that the fish get used to the specific flavours, smells and tastes of your bait mix and your attractors in the water. And on a very pressured water, no-one can take advantage of your bait after you leave, as someone could do, had you baited up with whole boilies!

Someone could, in effect, be 'blowing' your bait much faster than you realized, if you use conventional whole boilies, by catching fish attracted to your bait, and 'sabotaging' all your hard work by regularly baiting up your swim! (Even if only 'inadvertently.')

The author has many more fishing and bait 'edges' up his sleeve. Every single one can have a huge impact on catches. (Warning: This article is protected by copyright.)
