Welcome to Carp.com.

 

That is very basic, with the nuts will likely break down very quickly as water gets in, and is pretty much just attraction.

The halibut oil level is too high.

 

Drop the nuts, add 100g liver powder or fishmeal, maybe 100g Robin red reduce by 100g the semolina and soya flour and you will create a far better bait.

Thanks for the advice.. and I have taken it.. 

Ordered fishmeal and robin red.. (Only cos the liver powder is so expensive!!)

How much halibut oil should I add per KG?

So the new mix looks like this

Soya 350

Semo 350

Tigernut meal 100

Robin red 100

Fishmeal 100

Halibut oil ??

Minamino 30ml

 

Any advice on the halibut oil level muchly appreciated..

 

thanks

Oh and 1 other thing...

I will be mixing around 7.5kg of the dry basemix in the above ratios.. so my questions is..

whats the best way to make the dough? all in one go? that sounds difficult to judge the volume of egg.. of in 1KG batches? that sounds like hard work..

Or somewhere inbetween?

But how do you know haw many eggs to use?

thanks

I would only use around 5-10ml of Halibut oil per 4 eggs.

 

What I tend to do when making bait is work in 4 egg batches. Mix the eggs and liquids together, then add basemix until the dough consistency is right to roll. Going through a bait gun you want a softer mix than rolling with a bait table.

Thanks so much for your help here, really appreciate it..

Im still concerned Ill get the liquid volumes wrong tho..

 

If I do as you say, 4 egg batches, how do I know how much liquid to put in each set of 4 eggs? as I dont know haw many 4 egg batches im going to make?U

Unless Im trying to be too accurate and it doesnt really matter? can I overuse the minamino? will it be a turn off if theres too much in the mix?

thanks

For each 4 eggs put in say 10ml of Halibut Oil, and 20ml of Minamino.

That way you don't have to worry about how much liquids to base mix, it comes right automatically
