Flouro yellow scopex pop up recipe

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.IMG_8208

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.

New coconut sweet boilies

image

Hi guys I had an boilie idea over the weekend and poped in to my local supermarket and found some interesting things to add to my recipe. I also went down my local tackle shop and bought so boilie making ingredients. I think these boilies could be a right winner and can’t wait to test them out and start tweaking it.

After 24hours of air-drying these baits the smell really comes out of them but not to overpowering.

Here the recipe so far:

  • 6oz semolina
  • 4oz soya flour
  • 2oz vitalin (blended finely)
  • 4oz cream coconut (find it in the Asian section of any supermarket and tastes great as well)
  • 2oz dry milk
  • mainline scopex
  • yellow dye

Follow the progress of this bait by the SC1 tag.
