Making pop-ups

Recommended Posts

Making pop-ups.

 

I do make my own special pop-up hookbaits with a special flavour combination that has worked well for me.

 

 I work on a 1 egg mix with the flavours, oils and attractors as a 6 egg quantity.

For pop-ups I do use Mainline Polaris or Richworths Pop-up mix, dependant on which is easily available. A 1 egg mix lasts me usually a whole year.

 

So added to 1 egg is 5ml of Ultraspice Flavour, 2.5ml Verselle Laga Garlic Oil, 20ml Marine 17 liquid and 10ml Tunamino liquid, and the whole lot is whisked together and the base mix gradually added until it is stiff enough to roll. 

 

As I said a 1 egg mix produces enough pop-ups for a whole year, this year I rolled a load of 20mm and some 14mm baits.

 

I boil the baits in boiling water for 1minute and then leave to dry overnight, before adding a bit of extra liquid.

The 20mm I added a touch of red dye in with the extra liquids.

I like the blue/black ones...... only five red one's? next year's catch reports are going to be far between but hopefully some mega fish.....

A 1 egg mix makes around 80 baits, so I actually have 160 in total, half of each.

Of each mix I have done a few in 20mm compared to the other 15mm😉

 

If the crays  are active I will use most of them.

I promised I would do an article type write up on making my pop-ups so here it is:

I mix 25% of each semolina, full fat soya flour, ground rice and cork dust, or use a ready prepared pop-up mix.
If you mix the ingredients, you do need that much cork dust to get them to popup.

For 1 egg I add 2.5ml of Garlic Oil, 2.5ml of RH Megaspice, 2.5ml of Glycerine and 15ml of Solar Marine 17 liquid, along with 2.5ml of Dr. Oetker food colouring, and give it a good whisk. I add the powder and mix well until I have a very stiff mix for rolling. 

I roll it using a rolling table into sausages and long table into balls. I drop the balls into a bucket with a little of the powder to stop them sticking together.

Once my pan of water is boiling I put the pop-ups in for 1minute and 30seconds. It makes no difference boiling for any  longer and you actually boil out the flavour. I then sieve them out onto a tea towel to dry for 24 hours before putting into bait tubs.

Is it cause they are cheaper or that they are better you make them instead of buying?

Because no one makes a Garlic Spice pop-up. I found it a very effective combination on a lot of waters. I have used them on supposed runs waters to my season ticket lake, and for me they outfish other bought pop-ups. I still have various bought flavours and try them, but the Garlic Spice catch more.
