  24. Hello,all, I live in the Western Suburbs of Chicago and would like to find some good carp fishing in the area. i am a former U.K. angler, and own all the equipment, baits, etc, but I'll be dipped in boilie juice, if I can find any decent carp..... LOL Many thanks in adavance, charles.
  25. You have a point, they are convenient, fermenting large quantities of particle and keeping them fit to use takes a great deal of time and effort thats not priced in, but like some of the boilie home made brigade, i do get a kick out of using my own baits, the night temps at the minute are preventig big batch fermentation, so boilies will have to be deployed temporarily.

  27. Jeez, I've missed a good'n here eh lads? Are expensive boilies a con? Yes. But most expensive boilies (£10+) can be bought for nigh on half that if you know where to look and buy enough. All this talk of effectiveness (which has little to do with price IMO, there's loads of top quality baits at 5 to 7 quid a pop) and no-one's mentioned practicality. Yes bait can be done for much, much cheaper than boilie but it's a bit of a ball ache lets face it. If I had to choose between soaking. prepping (i.e. adding to), boiling, bagging, spodding etc etc., and grabbing a bag of baits out the freezer and sticking them out I know which I'd prefer. Yes liver is a fantastic bait but I don't fancy dealing with several kilos of the stuff over the course of a 3 day session. No-ones mentioned versatility either. A boilie can be chopped or crumbed to suit almost any baiting situation. Nuts or corn cannot be formed into hard round balls and popped accurately on a spot at more than 10 yards from the margin with a catty or stick. You'd need to get the old carp scarer out. It's probs not a fair argument comparing particle with boilie price-wise; you'd have to compare pre-prepared particle (also a rip off) with ready-mades, or home made baits with home prepped particle (which are much cheaper than off-the-shelf). I don't consider 6 quid for a kilo of quality bait to be a rip off. It's expensive, but not a rip off. I use a lot of particle too, but in all honestly I consider the time it takes me to prepare it to be worth more than the few quid extra the boilie costs.
