Record List

B ait, in this section i will cover baits for all our resident species including Carp, Catfish,  Pike, Tench, Bream, Roach, Perch etc :


      Here is a selection of Pike baits
Blast frozen that all good tackle shops stock
such as Trout, Mackeral, Smelt, Eel section also
Pike packs which contain several varieties of fish.
There are hundreds of baits both fresh and salt water
which are ideal for predators and these days can be obtained
from most good tackle shops.


               Lures, Plugs and Spinners
here are a selection of the Fox range which will cover
most situations, their are numerous companys involved in producing
good Lures and the most famous is Rapala,

With the introduction of boilies for carp fishing
all the tried and trusted baits became secondary
but they still catch Carp, this was mainly due to the
boilie being more selective, also the boilie is ideal for
baiting up at range with the aid of a throwing stick,
lets take a look at some of the baits available.


The Boilie, numerous companys make excellent boilies
seed baits, protein baits and thanks to Premier Baits of kent
and the introduction of the Fish meal boilie which has accounted for thousands of specimen carp.


Possibly the best particle for carp than any other is the Tiger Nut,
when using particles it is imperative that they are prepared properly,
nut baits need to be soaked for at least 24 hours then boiled for
30 minutes then left to ferment for several days, Tiger nuts give off a
syrup like consistency which carp love


Hemp seed this has fast become a favourite for the Carp angler,
mainly due to this little seed imitates snails and can cause a preoccupation
of the carp, fishing a boilie over the top of a bed of hemp, due to most fish liking hemp a little and often approach works very well.
Hemp should be soaked for 24 hours and boiled for 15 - 20 minutes or until
the seeds start to split open.


Maize / Sweetcorn
An old favourite and one that has caught countless amounts of
Specimen Carp. Maize should be soaked for a minimum of 24 hours
and boiled for at least 45 minutes.


Chic Peas,Possibly the most versatile of all the particle baits,
these take on both flavour and colour
better than any other particle, and carp love them,
soaked for 24 hours and boiled for 15 - 20 minutes

Tiger, Brazil, Almond, Cashew, Peanut and Pinenuts
are just a few Carp catchers

caught their share of Carp.
Hemp, Rape, Buckwheat, Tares, Maize
Corn, Sunflower, Niger and Millet
brilliant for preoccupation.
Maple peas, Dun peas, Yellow peas, Gunga peas
Lentils and Mini Maples are all good Carp catchers.
Worms, Slugs, Snails and Maggots

Bread, Dog mixers, Dog / Cat Biscuits

and Cork are all proven catchers of Carp.
