Winning recipes shown below for each of our mixes
“These are my own personal recipes and those of the Team Big Carp and my friends. . These are proven recipes using the very best mixes, additives, flavours and attractors and I am totally confident recommending these recipes to you.”…John Llewellyn
Note 1: The flavour levels shown are for 5 large eggs, which will take approximately 600g of mix, depending on the size of the eggs. Always add your mix to the eggs little by little, until you achieve the correct consistency for rolling.
Note 2: You can increase the attraction and nutritional value of your boilies by including various additives to your recipe, such as: BHA, Bioextract, CSL, Krill Extract, Rasta oil….
Note 3: These recipes have proven their effectiveness and have caught carp from a wide variety of waters. However, it’s worth experimenting with your own combinations. Stick to the advised dosage levels and experiment, you may well find your own personal winning recipe.
Note 4: L’Alourdisseur (Heavy bait additive) can be included in any of these recipes at 10-15%. This makes your boilies heavy and dense which is ideal for ground baiting at long range and for river fishing
Note 5: Preserving your boilies: I prefer to leave my boilies to dry for 24h and then either use them immediately, or seal in plastic bags and put them in the freezer. In warm weather conditions, when I want to ensure the freshness of my boilies for a week , I leave them to dry for 72h. Be careful to keep them in either a paper bag, a cardboard box, or a drying mesh open to the air. Avoid plastic bags which make the boilies sweat, causing them to deteriorate quickly
When I need to preserve my baits for longer periods, I still dry them for 72h and I add Conservabait to the eggs. For a sessionn of 1 to 2 weeks I add 3ml Conservabait per egg. To keep them for a month or two, I use 5ml per egg. Remember that it is essential to dry the baits properly in a clean, dry environment and preferably in the dark.
Here are some tips and advice about using CONSERVABAIT
