The Big Red Carp Fishing Blog
We all know how much carp love tiger nuts so I thought I'd share a quick tip on how to cook them very effectively using a pressure cooker.
I have always tended to use boilies in my fishing as a whole and only really dabbled occasionally with particle hook baits; that was until a couple of seasons ago.
I have recently returned from a somewhat chastening experience at Carp Quarry's lake in France, where I blanked (lost three but that doesn't count!). I say 'chastening' as I was quietly confident about my chances prior to the trip due to my prior experience of fishing deep lakes.
We have seen all manner of trends come and (sometimes) go in the bait business and the latest fad – or is it much more than that? – is boiled bait based on nut products.
I hope everybody had a good Christmas and New Year. This time around I’m going to go through my preparation and use of Tiger Nuts.
Ever since Dynamite Baits brought out their preserved tigers in jars people have been looking for different ways of preparing long life tiger nuts at home. A fella on Carp Forum (Zack) put me onto his method, which involves using plastic bottles and this has always been reasonably effective for me.
