carrots

Recommended Posts

This reply is slightly related to carrots.

 

Where i live, there is a carrots processing plant, and during the washing phase, water is discharged from the plant into a nearby dyke.

 

The water is clean, but occasionally bits of mud and carrot used to be flushed through this pipe.

 

I noticed and fished this dyke and found bream, mostly double figure swim around this pipe.

 

Why ??

 

The typical answer would be oxygenated water, but i have seen them take the tiny pieces of carrot, and hence me using small pieces on a hook.

 

I have taken bream up to 14lbs from the dyke that is only 2 metres across.

 

So if it works for bream, it should work for carp.

 

I would love to see if anybody catches using carrots.

 

It could well be the new bait... :wink::wink::wink::wink:

I had been wondering this today looking at cheap unusual baits. Have a look at this video, the guy is off his head but his videos are brilliant to get tips off and this one will answer your question plus give a few other ideas to try https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRV96u146PI#t=348

To be fair mate you could catch on a bare hook in a lake like that.

Thats true, I've even managed to catch with a bare hook on a similar style fishery lol. I am gonna try it next week with carrot using pulp of carrot & apples in a ground bait with carrot as hook bait and see what happens (my wife has a juicer which creates tonnes of pulp going to experiment on flavors lol)

So did anybody try carrot and did anyone get any results from it if so

An old school teacher of mine that is known to use "alternative" baits have caught carp in France on marinated carrots and also berries in sessions when nothing happened earlier.
