I was watching some carp videos the other day and also spoke to a guy at a lake that was catching alot of carp on a very hard fishing day in tough conditions (post snow and ice), and the thing these had in common was they were using flouro high viz yellow pop ups. So I thought ill try and create some sweet high viz baits to finally catch my first carp of the year. I made them all dumbbell barrel shapes and added some chilli flakes to give me an edge, cant wait to give these bad boys ago.
- Richworth pop up mix
- 1 egg
- Tps of fish sauce
- Tps of Tabasco
- Small hand full of chilli flakes
- Tbps Scopex extract (mainline)
- Tbps Vanilla extract
To follow my results on this bait look out for the tag #fspopups
Update: I have found this bait works best in the winter months on silt/gravel lake beds. Used with either a solid bag or mesh bag with small pellets. Here’s a result I had a couple of weeks ago.
