Here at Haith's Baits we have got everything you need to create the very best solutions for catching crafty carp, and one of the best ways to fool them it to use The Method.

Tiger nuts

 
In this little section we will demonstrate how you can make your own customised mix by blending several different baits together. Here’s a step-by-step look at a very effective Method Mix that is almost guaranteed to bring you success!
 
Prepare some well-flavoured and sweetened tiger nuts

Prepare some well-flavoured and sweetened tiger nuts in the usual way then drain them (keep the water) and feed them through a food processor or mincer to crush them into tiny bits before adding some Trigga Ice liquid to the water in which the tigers were prepared and boiled. Now return the crushed tigers to the heavily laced water. At this stage you will note it looks a bit like a curry. Resist the urge to eat it!
 
Prepare some boilie crumb.

Prepare some boilie crumb. This is basically whole boilies turned into particles-sized bits by feeding them through a food processor This is crumbed Nutrabaits Techni Spice Ready-Mades but aim to put as many different flavoured baits in as possible.
 
Add the crumb and mix thoroughly

Add the crumb and mix thoroughly.
 
add some pellets to the mixture

Next add some pellets to the mixture.
 
Leave the pellets to stand overnight

Leave the pellets to stand overnight so that they break down to a soft mush.
 
Now for the piece de resistance

Now for the piece de resistance! Add enough dry SuperRed groundbait to bind the other ingredients together. This will take about an hour while the mixture stiffens.
 
The resulting mix can be moulded around a Method feeder

The resulting mix can be moulded around a Method feeder and will withstand even the fiercest casting. However, once on the lakebed it will start to break down to form an incredible ball of attraction right next to the hookbait.

Supersoft Pellet Range

Dip the ball of feed in the water and give it a light squeeze. This starts the release process and you will see the attractors ooze out of the ball. Lightly lodge the hook in the surface of the ball of feed. On impact with the water the hook and the hookbait will be jerked free on impact.
