The Big Red Carp Fishing Blog
Our SuperSoft Pellets are designed to breakdown quickly; in fact it is one of their principle benefits. However there are times when a slower breakdown rate is preferred and this can be achieved by using a food oil.
I had a PM from a Carp Forum member the other day as follows:
"Hi Ken, Would a recipe of 50/50 Haith's CLO & SuperRed work as a boiled bait? I want a simple but immediate bait as due tomorrow to work/family I only get out 2-3 times a year.Also what attractors would you recommend?
Even though it is colder than it should be at this time of the year (in most of the UK) by now the water temperatures will be climbing slowly but steadily enough to keep the fish on their toes.
For a great many years I have taken a keen interest in what carp can physically detect, what draws them to investigate an item - not necessarily a food item - and what signals certain ingredients may emit that tells a carp that food is present, namely (hopefully) your bait.
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.
