Boiled baits based upon birdfoods are usually almost instantly successful with no need for extensive pre-baiting campaigns. Most of the birdfoods feeds used in modern carp baits are in fact blends of various crushed or ground seeds such as hempseed together with ground cereals, pulses, biscuit meal, bran and other goodies. As their name implies, birdfoods were never intended to be used as fish feeds but were originally formulated as feeds that would maintain the condition of show birds such as parakeets, canaries and budgies. However, as luck would have it carp too find them highly palatable, not least because of the high-energy factor.

What everyone ought to know about preparing groats

In my opinion, groats are on a par with hempseed when it comes to pulling down carp onto a bait carpet. It absolutely staggered me to watch them feed and I have never seen preoccupied feeding like it.

I clearly saw hundreds of individual grains spilling from its mouth and gill covers, so much had it crammed in.
