  1. Dynamite "Source " liquid additive

    Smells like soy sauce to me. Things like Bragg amimos or feedstim xp smell very similar.
  2. Blue Seal course 14...... My oat method mix/ pack bait 1 large tub old fashioned oatmeal Equal part Sweet feed I medium tub panko bread crumbs 3 cans creamed corn 4 handfuls cooked hemp seed or birdseed Flavor of choice (jello pack, vanilla extract, anise extract, maybe a can of crushed pineapple, ...added to creamed corn) Maybe a tablespoon of chili powder or two. Use maize juice for added moisture or lakewater
  3. Chum and boilies

    Hey there fellow Yank Invest in a spomb and a decent bait throwing spoon. Makes life soooo much easier! Definitely prebait your areas once or twice the week before a session!
  4. Hello all Managed to get my hands on 5kg of source base mix, hard to come by here across the pond. ASSUMED the liquid additive was in the bag....... no joy. Virtually impossible to get here........ anyone know the recipe secrets for at least a reasonable facsimile? Arrrgh!!!!!!! Much thanks in advance Gregg

    like most have said any decent boilie used effectively i e in the right spot will catch.

    Plus..... otter fur makes a great hat!
  7. Yankee boilie suggestions

    Yes, thank you. Trying to get away from buying boilies..... Can bang them out for roughly 1/3 the cost including shipping

    Thriving. Occasionally in wintering areas they get a few but no real issue.....part of nature

    Can't agree more..... gotta love Yankee ingenuity.... he's the kind of guy that can look at something online and knock it together! A few tweaks and it works!! Been rolling some hook baits by hand, around 25mm. That with a 15 or 18mm pop up snowman does the business. Gotta love the molasses!!!!!! Made a goopy attractant with molasses, Bragg liquid amimos and marmite (luckily the market carries it) can't say it makes a difference but it can't hurt. Always use molasses in the particles along with salt and maybe some chili flakes or even chopped up chili peppers from the garden. Maybe some Anise seed in the pigeon conditioner.

    I totally agree with you about the maize...... we use lots of it as well as pigeon conditioner to add some small bits for them to Grub around after. Pellets are not easy to come by here or cheap. But yes they do work. We use flavored maize as a hook bait with a piece of Pop up corn to add some color and buoyancy. We do catch Plenty of Fish on it but a trend seems to be forming that most of the fish are the smaller ones. Mind you we do catch some of the bigger fish on maize as well. occasionally we use tiger nuts frugally in our pre baiting bucket as well. Definitely a great hook bait. I agree with you about them probably not getting conditioned to boilies, but without a doubt they love them. They're usually Emptying them out on the mat in vast quantities so we know they're eating them with gusto. I'm fortunate to fish with a couple of Partners that all do their share in procuring ingredients and we get together frequently over the winter and share a few pints and do some rolling. One of them is quite handy with gizmos and made an electric motor powered roller which saves us tons of effort. Definitely agree to keeping it simple with a decent boilie recipe yet not overly complex.

    Thanks for the reply. I worked one out recently with roughly the same ratios of the same dry ingredients. Use a large amount of menhaden meal which is very similar to herring or sardine meal. Then I use various liquid attraction such as feed stim XP and sweet chili sauce from the market. Done another fish meal bird food bait. Kind of my reverse engineering Dynamite baits Robin Red boilies which I've had pretty good luck with almost everywhere I used. My supply of them dried up and they're difficult to get here in America. We do get a bit of a bycatch of catfish especially using fish meal stuff. But... It keeps the night interesting. Definitely agree a reasonably decent boilie will work here. Had not get caught up in all the hype of beat making in the UK and abroad. For what it's worth I have absolutely knock them dead on CC Moore Odyssey XXX. The glm is quite potent stuff I've noticed.
  12. Yankee boilie suggestions

    Yes it was. And absolutely stunning mirror. For the record that was a friend of mine's fish. He had such a stellar session with if memory serves me correctly 5 over 40 lb. And roughly 20 30s over the course of a three-day session.

    That fish was post-spawn. I'm guessing she would have gone 5 or 8 pounds more pre-spawn. Most of the river fish a longer in leaner. Some of the Commons are true athletes with a serious torpedo shape and big fins. Not only do they love to eat boilies. They also love to absolutely shred terminal tackle on the various snags and who-knows-what on the bottom of that River. Occasionally we get a true chubby mirror. But the fish usually don't resemble the big fat European fish. These fish have huge mouths and they're hard as rocks. Sharp hooks are a must thanks for the replies.

    Hello all. New here love the sight! Highly informative. Looking for advice on a good solid boilie recipe for the wild river monsters here across the pond. Been rolling my own for a while, got the basics down, both with premade base mixes as well as my own concoctions . Reasonable economy, yet decent ingredients for a not overly complex medium flavor hnv style bait is my goal. However, my access to some of the higher end specialty ingredients, squid powder for example pretty much impossible to source here. Other items like the high end milk proteins damn blooming expensive! Fish in the river (Connecticut) are proper boilie munching machines! Heavy prebaiting , such as 20ltr bucket of maize and pigeon conditioner,along with another 20ltr (5 gallon) bucket of boilies twice a week before a session is about right as the fish tend to shoal up in large numbers and can eat vast amounts of baits rather quickly. A fishmeal/dairy protein/birdfood combo, and maybe a colder water birdfood/dairy bait (coconut?) Would be great. Thanks in advance! Here's an example of the "wild beasts" we attempt to tame @ 48lbs
