It’s January and if like me you’re skint but want to still catch carp this recipe is for you.
This year I’ve been playing around with pop ups and with my favourite favours such as the indian spice so I had plenty of it laying around that’s why I decided on the indian spice flavours.
Making boilie sticks are the quickest and often cheapest way to make boilies. Although they won’t be your average rounded shape, these baits are high leakage and small, which is ideal for any time of the year.
Another reason why I love boilie sticks is that you can make the baits any size you need, by simply boiling them as whole sticks then snapping off the size you need on the bank.
Making boilies sticks are ideal if you like crushing up you boilies for PVA bags.
Here’s my recipe for the Indian Spice Boilie Sticks:
– 6 eggs
– 10ml Mainline Indian spice
– 5ml Mainline Mediterranean shellfish
– Black food colouring
– Mainline brown dye
– Semolina – 250g
– Fishmeal – 55g
– Soya – 50g
– EMP Bird Feed – 50g
– Maize Meal – 65g
– Milk powder – 30g
Mix to recipe together to make a doughy mix and roll a sausage shapes making sure each stick is around 5/6cm.
Boilie the stick for around 1 – 2 minutes and dry them for at least 24 hours before use.
Thanks for reading my quick boilie sticks guide.
I will be updating the blog very soon with some special homemade hookbaits that have landed me plenty of carp including 2 PB’s last year.
