EASY HOMEMADE FISHING BAITS -- Reasons Why Baits Really Work
By Tim Richardson
+ It is extremely valuable to discover as many true reasons why baits and all their ingredients work; and how to maximize their effects for the most unbelievable catches. +
If you regularly use, pellets, or boilies, or dough baits etc, how much do you really know about how these really attract fish to take your hook?
I think it's sad that most anglers don't give their bait the thought it really deserves and most often, the 'average angler' just copies what his friend or the most successful angler along the bank is using. Or he uses whatever 'favourite' fashionable shop-bought bait happens to be 'en vogue' at the time.
To me this is completely missing the point about 'effective bait!'
Its role has changed since fishing became so commercially and the thinking of anglers became conditioned and 'warped' by the power of powerful advertising - telling us "Our new pellet or boilie bait, or this new 'packbait' is the best - it has caught 50 lake records!" Then the following month a completely different bait, a new addition to their products range is introduced, and forcefully marketed!
It is no surprise that many anglers feel confused, and spend their hard earned money on 'the next best thing' whatever it is; the amount of 'manipulation' is staggering!
Obviously there are multitudes of reasons why baits work - one of the strongest is the availability of 'easy energy'. In this case bait merely supplements the carp's natural diet; it's for this reason that any 'non–nutritional' bait will dominate a water if it is fed in masses of kilograms, perhaps by the majority of anglers that fish the water.
Surely the whole point of 'bait' as a concept is to create a 'safe hook delivery mechanism.' So many people forget the difference in quantities of baits fed by anglers, especially in the UK and European waters now far exceed that in fed into fishing waters in the past.
The great increase in anglers and the practice of actively 'baiting-up' their swims as part of the 'modern' carp fishing method has massively multiplied and exaggerated the effects of fishermens' baits. ('Mass baiting' a swim with far more than just half a pint of boilies, or pellets as 'free offerings' is simply another 'method' is it not?)
In the case of overstocked waters, hopefully baits with no harmful side effects, (and preferably health promoting effects,) are eaten with confidence. But are they?
Even with the balanced food baits or old concept of high nutritional baits ('HNV') style baits; it's the same mission; to deliver a hook into a fish's mouth. (And not to give the fish various expensive baits with 'optimum nutrition values' for the sake of their 'health.') Are not anglers' baits specifically meant to hook fish, and only incidentally supplement the carps' natural diet so promoting fish growth gains?
Only on 'unbalanced waters' like those that are well overstocked for the volume of water available, that perhaps some 'bait dependence' sets in and natural growth and weight gains are exaggerated. (Obviously, anglers' like this 'artificial produced' situation on heavily fished waters, because the fish they catch just keep getting bigger, artificially faster, which is certainly a continuing egos boost for the captors!
Any bait you use could hook a fish immediately, if it stimulates a confident feeding or even 'curiosity' response, and there are thousands of permutations of baits and lures all round the world for doing this!
Your bait does not necessarily need any particular individual ingredient to be successful. A bait that has been given no flavour, no protein, no oil source, no additives etc, will still produce 'bites' in the right fishing situation. For example, the use of plastic sweetcorn!
The author has many more fishing and bait 'edges' up his sleeve. Every single one can have a huge impact on catches. (Warning: This article is protected by copyright.)
