Don't know if Pete still comes on here. If he does I hope he does not mind me posting this for the previous poster:

OK after so many requests here are a couple of simple base mixes to base your own baits around. There is nothing clever here just simple balanced nutrition and if you take any of these as a base and then add your chosen attractors you won’t be going far wrong.

BM1 (basic HNV mix)
30% LT94 fishmeal
15% Maize Protein Meal 60% (supergold 60)
13% Egg based bird food like CeDe
10% Semolina
10% Soya flour (heat treated)
8.5% pre-digested fishmeal
8.5% Calf or lambs milk powder such as Vitamelo
5% Equivite

Depending on the exact brand of milk powder and bird food you use this will give you a bait with over 50% crude protein and about 10% oil content. Although they sound a little high it will come down if you add a few attractors to it yourself. If you really want to know the FLAA is Phenylaline, the 2nd is Methionine and the 3rd is Threonine……but all are plenty high enough to allow the carp maximum utilisation of the protein in the bait.

I have deliberately left the solubles a little on the low side so that you can add your own soluble attractors such as Betaine, MSG, liver powder etc without the bait falling to pieces in the water after 10 minutes!

Now another mix I have played with and had some promising result on before I stopped bait development was slightly different. Lower fish meal due to increased costs and slightly higher energy was the initial goal.

BM2
22% Poultry protein meal
20% LT94
10% Maize Protien Meal 60% (supergold 60)
10% pre-digested fishmeal
10% Calf or lambs milk powder such as Vitamelo
7% Micronized Soya meal
6% Semolina
2.5% Micronised crushed hemp
2.5% Equivite

Again the crude protein level is above 50% but the lipids levels are higher. The 1st, 2nd and 3rd LAA are the same as the above mix although the balance is not quite as good. As with BM1 you can add your attractors to this. If you find it too soft (I like it that way and the attractors can just pour out) then try adding 2 or 3% egg albumin.

For a simple bait take any of these and add 20ml per Kg of good quality oil such as Cod liver or Salmon, a few ml of flavour if you want some and 8-10 eggs per Kg of base mix.


Two of the best recipes you will ever encounter...Nothing more needs saying

boilies-v2-0
molecular weight of aluminium hydroxide


well i've done another table with your suggestions smurf

the final price per kg looks very appealing no factoring the eggs in which i can imagine will drop the price per kg abit also?

The corn steep liquor is a few pounds cheaper from BAF than CC Moore, they both say there active is there any difference between them or im i fine going with BAF?

Not sure that level of GLM is worth the effort (some use up to 10%) and I never tried with a level lower than 2.5% and at that level it was really tailing off in any noticeable affect.

Personally I still quite like this mix but swap half the Maize Protein meal for Vanilla Extract meal (which some hate but the carp love it) and then add 2% Spirulina and 1% Betaine and a little (10-20ml per kg of dry mix) CSL liquid when mixing

However, for those who can afford to create the ultimate bait, how would we change it?

Simple.
Just take any time proven bait recipe and just apply it better, more often & to more areas in your venue, give the fish more free food without hooks, to get them really wanting it.

The mix has all you need, why change for the sake of it? They are only fish, not gourmets in some high class restaurant. The only thing I would add to this mix is a good dollop of hydrolyzed fish liquid in with the eggs. Anything else is superfluous. In fact, I would take some things out rather than add them.

Hi all,

First post. Please be gentle...

Fascinating thread. Thanks to all who have contributed.

How would we change this mix if money was no issue? I know there is already a cheap bait thread and this appears to be a very good value HNV mix (and I note that smurf already clarified that it was a good value HNV, not a cheap HNV mix).

With limitless money, what would we change? Would we up the GLME/ RR/ Pre- dig?

I appreciate that not everyone can afford such changes and some would regard them as "buying your fish". However, for those who can afford to create the ultimate bait, how would we change it? Also, I know that the ultimate bait can be out fished off the next swim by a pack of shelf life tuttis....

BM1 - Why change it ? it works, and you know it works

Personally I think Pea protein is the latest bait fad, snapping at the heels of the other carp Tax buzzwords containing ...Krill, Tuna, and anything that is Nut based

Hey.

I joined up just for this thread.

I'm going to be making baits for the first time and have some questions of you don't mind answering them for me please fella's ?

I can't find anywhere that sells hydrolysed poultry meal in the uk. Would it be ok just to use a a fish mean in its place like salmon or krill for example or can someone point me in its direction.

And when it's says the liquid element 10 eggs use 50ml of CSL and 5ml of your chosen attractors

Is that ten eggs per Kg ? Then 55ml per kg of base mix of liquids ??



Cheers

Callam

Yeah I used it at 10% consistency of the mix the same as normal eggs but when I did a tank test they went really soft after 15 hours. That is fine for me as I made my hookbaits up with normal eggs plus I glug them in glycerine and the shellfish liquid which hardens them right up.

Also I boil them so they still have a soft centre to keep as much nutrition and pulling power as possible

They look good, ive never used the megablend red and have usually used the megablend sweet.

Did you use egg powder or eggs? and how did you find it?

I have found when using it at 10% in a similar but more soluble mix that it doesnt quite bind as well and the baits breakdown a little quicker than using eggs which is fine for most of my fishing, but if i up the level to nearer 15% it gives a bait with very similar breakdown to the one made with eggs

Made my first batch of BM1 this morning..they came out great! I cant wait to get home from work to see how they have dried out !!

Thanks for the recipe and thanks for all the advice, looking forward to getting back to the rolling table...wife permitting!

Just another quick question I cant seem to find the Poultry protein meal for the BM2 anywhere on the CC Moore website, is this called something else? I apologise if it mentions this elsewhere in the thread but i havent seen it asked anywhere else

I dont use the bm1 mix but a similar mix along the same lines and i use the ratio you mention of one kilo of whole egg powder per 10kilo of base.

For roughly one 1.1 kilo of mix i use 100mil of my liquid additives to 1/2 pint of water, it may not be exactly the same for your mix but will give you a starting point to work from

Not used it with this mix but as a starting point I use 250g of egg powder to a litre of water. This works out at (very) roughly 3kg of base mix. Liquids then added to that.

One question mate. I have always used real eggs in my mix, but going to be using Whole Egg Powder instead this time.

I have been reading on here to start at 1kg per 10kg base mix, so that is what I was going to start with but wondered if you or anyone else has used Whole Egg Powder in the BM1 before and if so what quantities did you use it in, per KG base mix & also how much water added?

Much appreciated, saves wasting bait in a trial and error....

Just put an order in with CCMoores for a French trip that came today. First time I have bought in higher quantities, works out much cheaper :

This is what I ordered (in kgs)
lt94 25
maize protein 25
megablend 12.5
semolina 12.5
soya flour 12.5
pre digested fishmeal 12.5
vitamealo 10
betaine 1
liquid shellfish Concentrate 2 litres
salmon oil 5 litres
Whole Egg Powder 10

Total 371.4
With 7% discount 345.402
Delivery charge 41
Total Delivered 386.66

I already have the Selenavite and 7 of the items will make much more than the 80kgs dry mix the LT94 & Shellfish will make

Top Bait - TOP TOP Prize - and a big for a 1 stop shop in the name of CCMoores.

Just got to roll this lot now!

Here you go Selenevite E, use at 2.5% and add something else you fancy to make up the other 2.5%. I used GLM powder on my latest batch.

yeah i suppose it would save on postage too!

Im sure it has been said on this thread but im unable to find it now....could something else be used as a substitute for Equivite? as its very expensive and CC Moore dont have it.

Cheers!

I just put an offer in on a new home so not very rich at all at the moment.

Ill have a play with spirulina through the summer, as its an ingredient I've never used before and keep wanting to try it.

Thanks

I have used it in this bait at 2% and it made a difference (not as good if I left it out) BUT that's all I tried as I had little time to test like I used too. No idea as to a maximum, how rich are you feeling

What is a good inclusion level in any bait for Spirulina in your opinion? Also what would you suggest is a maximum level for its inclusion?

To answer a couple of questions this mix can be used all year without any worries, many have done and still do and it has stood the test of time

I have used it as a basis for many baits including sweet, savory, meaty and fishy 'flavours'.....but not all at once

I only fish a few hours a year now, work, family and other hobbies get in the way. Last year I managed about 3 or 4 nights and that was twice as many as the year before! However every now and then I get the bait books out, scratch my head and come up with a new mix (I say new but they are always a tweak of an existing mix). If you take BM1 and tweak it then you may end up with this.

20% LT94
20% Vanilla Extract Meal
17.8% Megablend
8% Crunchy Kelp Meal
8% Pre-digested fishmeal
10% Semolina
4% Supergold 60
4% Blood plasma
4% Hydrolysied Poultry Protein
2% Spirulina
1% Selenavite E
1% Betaine
0.3% (yes 0.3%!) Candy Sweet
per 10 eggs, 50ml CSL and 5ml Karpi

This mix has out-fished any other bait I have tried it against on various waters from club to day ticket to private lakes. Unfortunately the Poultry protein is no longer available and I have run out of Karpi and I am not about to order another production batch at crica £100 a go....so that's the end of that mix

Later this year I might see what i can do to the above mix and take it to the next level, but it was so good I am not sure it will be easy to tweak it again

Yeah, it smells quite fishy even with no flavour in it. 1ml per kilo of John Bakers crab flavour can really help improve this naturally built in smell if you wanted a fishy bait.

JB crab is expensive to buy, but at 1ml/kg it goes a long way, making up to 100kg for the price.

I've used it with nothing but salmon oil and L030 and it's worked a treat, also used Squid and Octopus/Esterblend 12, also worked a treat. Basically just add any flavour you feel confident with. The basemix is quite distinct without adding anything and you have to add quite a bit of flavour to notice it really. I tend to add a small amount to the mixes then make some special hookbaits with more flavour and then put them in pots with a bit of glug.

Thanks for the info bud. Does the BM1 Mix smell of anything if no flavouring is added? I'm assuming it's going to smell fishy because of the fish meal base?

Its an all year round mix IMO, and yes you can add any flavour you like to it if you wanted to put one in. I liked it when i used it on a lake with strawberry flavour believe it or not. I used other flavours in it depending on which lake i rolled it for, but it seemed to take fruit or savory flavours really well.

I'm thinking of trying the BM1 mix. I've never done it before and never even heard of half the ingredients. Are we able to use this mix in winter time? Also do we just add our own flavourings to the mix?

Well I've just made a batch of BM1 and this time used CLO instead of Meggablend and all the stickiness problems I had last time had gone. In fact it rolled like a dream once I'd sorted out my liquid to basemix ratio. Whether it was just the change to CLO that made the difference I'm not sure as i got all my ingredients from a different source this time.
Just thought I'd mention it though as a few people were saying how sticky the mix was.

Yes it is cheaper, however the vitamealo/milk replacer offers binding and skinning properties, a creamy taste, some fats and a good oil content with some vitamins and minerals.

Excellent thanks. I'm assuming Vitamelo is used to keep the cost down but WPC would be the preference if cost was not an issue?

nope.
WPC is a higher quality binding ( but still soluble ) milk powder with a lot less oil content than the vitamealo.

With the remaining 25g you could add kelp powder/seaweed meal or a little liver powder ( or both) to add more B vitamins and keep more built in attraction in the bait.

what they sell that is equivalent to Equivate

Nothing really. Just add the attractor of your choice. Concentrated yeast or CSL powder would be good choices if your after something to replace Equivite.

Or find a source of Selenevite E and use at 25g per kilo leaving you 25g/kg to play around with. Betaine and Garlic powder?

Thank you for your answer.


Dmpt is:
considered as the best feed lure, for both fresh water and sea water aquatic animals. In several lab- and field tests DMPT comes out as the best feed inducing stimulant ever tested. DMPT not only improves feed intake, but also acts as a water soluble hormone-like substance. DMPT is the most effective methyl donor available, it enhances the ability to cope with stress associated with catch / transportation of fish and other aquatic animals.

It is revert to as the fourth generation attractant for aquatic animals. In several studies it is showed that the attractant effect of DMPT is around 1.25 times better than choline chloride, 2.56 times betaine, 1.42 times methyl-methionine and 1.56 times better than glutamine.

Feed palatability is an important factor for fish growth rate, feed conversion, health status and water quality. Feed with good flavor will enhance feed intake, shorten eating time, reduce loss of nutrients and water pollution, and eventually improve efficiency of feed utilization.

High stability supports high temperatures during pellet feed processing. The melting point is about 121ËšC, therefore it can decrease the losses of nutrients in feeds during high temperature pellet, cooking or steaming processing. It is very hygroscopic, do not leave in open air.

This substance is silently being used by many bait companies.

Take a look at the reviews on the next tab.

Dosage direction, per kg dry mix:

Especially for use with aquatic animals including fish like common carp, koi carp, catfish, gold fish, shrimp, crab, terrapin etc.

In fish bait as an instant attractor, use up to a maximum of about 3 gr, in a long term bait use around 0.7 - 1.5 gr per kg dry mix.

With groundbait, stickmixes, particles, etc use up to around 1 - 3 gr per kg ready bait for creating a massive bait response.
Very good results can also be obtained adding this to your soak. In a soak use 0,3 - 1gr dmpt per kg bait.

DMPT can be used as an extra attractor alongside other additives. This is a very concentrated ingredient, using less is often better. If used too much the bait will not be eaten!

Because this powder has the tendency to clot it is best applied mixing it direct with your liquids in which it will dissolve completely to get an even spread, or smash it first with a spoon.


It costs about 3 £ for 25 gr

Can anyone tell me if it makes sense to use all of the following additives in 1 mix?
Butyric acid (5 gr / 1000gr)
Dmpt (2 gr / 1000gr)
Mainline activator (15ml / 1000gr)

They seem to be great additives in any mix, but i was wondering if the activator doesnt cover the other 2 ?
since they are very strong, i dont want to over-do it...

Get a kilo of semolina and mix it with a kilo of Nectarblend, Red factor or EMP, and roll that with eggs. 2 ingredients. Hows that?

And you'll catch loads with it too.

If you wanted really simple, leave out the semo, and roll the other half on its own. Don't get much simpler than that.

Yes you could do. Change it for anything you like really. Sardine and Anchovy is my favourite fish meal too.

On the second mix would it be suitable to change the poultry meal for sardine and anchovy??

I mixed up this base mix today and found the mix very sticky, sticking to the rolling table a lot
I tried leaving the mix for 10 20 and 30 minutes before rolling it was either to sticky or to dry that the gunned out sausages fell to bits when I tried putting them on the rolling table, any help would be great?

Think I see what you mean. The additives all do slightly different things within the bait. To be honest if the base is good like the recipe above then you shouldn't need to add much. I tend to add 1 powder attractor like nash squid extract or robin red, krill etc, a bulk liquid food (molasses and anchovy sauce being two of my favourites) and a flavour/sweetener. The cajousers are good and sweeten/flavour the bait at the same time.

For example: 500g base mix +7.5g of squid powder+25mil of anchovy sauce+2.5mil of sweet cajouser and 12 drops black pepper oil.

No reason why you cant mix fishy with cream or fruit flavours.

Cheers smirker, I'll take a look for that, I guess what I'm looking for are the reasons behind the different additives as there are similar flavours in different styles.
ie. cajousers,elites, oils
Do you need to add the other ingredients like liquid foods or natural attractors and what are there purpose are they required ?
Really just to get a handle on it to give me confidence when I make it.
Like I say I know a lot of its trial and error to which I'm perpared to do.

Jay Riders E-books on his site (books on carp) well worth a look. Cheaper than buying a hard copy. What do you want to know exactly? Inclusion levels of attractors are on the bottles?

Do any of you experienced home made boillie makers know of any decent books on the subject ?

I have used nutrabaits base mixes to some success but now I have more time I would like to start experimenting a bit more, what I find most difficult is knowing what size quantities I need to be using of the various oils, cajousers, and elites, none of this info seems that available other than a few recipes on various portals to which I don't want to do the same as.

I know a lot of this is trial and error which I accept but being in the same ball park would be handy.

cheers for any help

If you are having trouble with the bm1 being too soft for your particular application, I would recommend swapping the soya flour for rice flour or maize flour. This made the necessary difference in a basemix I have used for quite a few years to good effect. 2-3% blood powder seriously firms up the bait (I would think whey gel or blood plasma is comparable). Another simple trick is to sieve the mix for the hookbaits and boil those 30 secs longer than normal. Usually makes them a bit firmer for bit longer.

so do 25g of GLM powder
how much CSL liquid should i put in?
and same with cod liver oil how much should i put in



with glm it depends on the depth of your pocket but i generally use 10 gms per kg
when i have used CSL i use it at 50 ml per kg
CLO i use at between 20 and 30 ml per kg

and.. would you suggest using flavoring or leave it with out?

peach and black pepper is a time honoured flavour combo
cranberry
tutti frutti
salmon
caviar
salmon / caviar
cranberry/ caviar
strawberry
cream
maple

the only flavours i use these days are nutrabaits and when it comes to flavour combos the worlds your oyster what ever flavour you go with stick with it . Its no good making a batch of bait 1 week with say strawberry and then next week make a batch with tutti

You can get Selenavite E from VetUK and if you use this code ORDER10 you get 10% off your first order.

They are the cheapest I have found.

Lars28 links to some places to buy selenavite e in post 161. To be honest I've not brought any in a while. You may be able to get it cheaper if you shop around now.

I would use GLM or garlic powder and betaine or csl powder. I would also include CSL liquid, and some cod liver oil.

As for flavours, you could use any you fancy. Even some flavours you may not think about will go in this recipe. Try some of the Elites from Nutrabaits. If you don't fancy experimenting with flavours on this base mix, just choose a good fishy one, or even an essential oil. Orange oil or Clove being two of my favourites.

Supergold 60 is maize protein. If you scroll through this thread you will find a mix I have posted. Try that as it rolls a dream and very nutritious etc. It is a fish meal but will blend with a fruit flavour such as Essential baits shellfish plum and fruit factor 6 combo. If you decide to include per digested then whatever weight you include then remove that weight from the lt94.

Hi mate,
Ok + would I have to replace anything to add in Pre-digested?
The lake I'm fishing they love maize!
I'm not too sure what the best base mix would be but they love yellow/white and maize sweet things (pineapple ect.) ! Do you have any suggestions for a good base mix?

No need for maize flour and supergold 60. Just use supergold 60 for the whole weight of the two combined. Not sure about the pepper. Have you thought about Robin Red or combining some soluble pre-digested fishmeal?

Fair point mate. Although the level maybe a little on the low side I am trying to make a long term bait for a campaign on a new water that I started in January. I was hoping that even low levels would increase attraction and the 'want it' factor due to the overall effectiveness of the inclusion of GLM. Increased nutrient profile etc.

too little to come to the fore.I'd rather put 2% squid nash.

Seeing as I am only talking hookbaits maybe that's what I should do also. The albumin/whey seems to make the baits harder yes, but it doesn't seem to stop them going soft once in the water.

I am ashamed to say it but I had to resort to using some readymades on the hair over the weekend so they were still there in the morning!

I am still having a problem with harder hookbaits. I have made some up with 5% and 10% Whey Gel and they are like bullets. The only problem is that once in the water they are still softening up too quickly for my liking and am never confident that the bait is still there in the morning.
Is there anything else I can try as it is only the hookbaits I'm having a problem with?

cheers smurf will do! its a great mix, easy to roll and when you delve into the FLAA side, its better than 90% than some of the bait being sold out there!! my fishing buddy is using a bait made by one of the most popular who sell for £5-6 per kilo, and makes for untold online bait companies, when we compared , his had hardly any birdfood in it, very oily and seemed to be mainly semo, not being a bait buff im not sure 100% but the BM 1 looked so much better!!

As of interest, did you have any birdfoody type recipies to share? would love to tinker about with one of those too!

Try making some harder hookbaits with blood plasma, wpc or whey gel. 5% of any one of these will make them harder :-)

cheers nellie, one thing i have found , i made a batch before which was great , but adding seaweed really brings out a fishy salty taste that is tops! its a very coarse mix which i love and i added only a half a ml of monster crab and half a mil of cranberry per egg, so 6 ml per 6 eggs. no sweetener. could i harden the bait slighlty by reducing the clo and adding semo ?

used it last night, had a few bream, but no carp caught on the lake.
left to dry for 12 hours.

does get very soft, baits were gone in the morning? probably bream!!

I've been reading this thread with interest, and it has got my mind racing with combinations and levels.

Peter(Smurf) deserves a commission from the ingredient suppliers, and from the rest of us for abusing his kind gesture!

I have been battling (albeit on paper), with some of the variations to BM1 listed in this thread. Specifically the inclusion of both GLME and betaine.

Can anyone clarify if additional betaine levels should be lowered/omitted altogether, given the levels that GLME already contains?

Would say 50g GLME provide enough betaine to negate its inclusion separately?

Perhaps adding a half dose of betaine to the hookbaits for added atttraction?

Obviously, I am trying to avoid the repellent effects that too much betaine can cause.

Yes you can take the Poultry protein out and either adjust the other ingredients or like you say a 50/50 mix of fishmeal and bird food could work.

I never carried on with the development of the BM2, it was always an experiment to move away from fishmeal for commercial reasons....but the bait I make now I guess you could call the BM5 (3 and 4 soon got replaced in my bait own recipe book!) but only me and a couple of mates use it and it works very well

Having said that my BM5 is not that different to BM1....just tweaked here and there plus two other key ingredients I wanted to try

i too dont like using the poulty meal, ive used it in the past, but when it comes down to it I just like fishy baits not meaty baits o its a confidence thing with me.

I don't want to turn up on this thread and turn it into a bait company war, however just to add in response to AA baits I may look there but CCMoores have a loyalty scheme too even with the first order over £100 it goes to 5% off and goes up the more you spend plus freebies thrown in here and there so I personally may be swayed to look elsewhere but if it aint broke and all that

Ill have a good trawl through that website later. Thanks. With regards BM2 could the poulty protein be swapped for something esle? As to be honest ive used it before and hate the stuff. Maybe split the 220g 50/50 between another fish meal and a birdfood?

Also while your here why do you think everyone is all about the BM1? Also any idea if there will be a trilogy or quadrilogy to the BM saga?

i worked it out at 1ml of liquid is 1 gram is that not correct then?

the weight of water is 1ml per gram....

and no i didnt take air drying into consideration suppose to get the exact cost I should weigh 1 mix after they have dried to my liking ....

you will be lucky to get 1.5kg of boilies from 1kg of base mix. The liquid weight in normally approx 0.2kg to 0.35kg depending on liquids used.

Depending on air dry time (shelf life vs freezer) i multi ply by 1.2 or 1.25 this should also cover you for a little wastage and spillage

I have put my mix into a table and carried out some basic calculations for anyone that is interested in a rough cost of the BM1 + a basic additives.

 photo Capture_zps1190d8e1.png


Price per kg mix including eggs & liquids = £5.51
5.51/ 1.5 (finished bait) £3.67

If you replace the ingredients in larger quantities when they run out the cost of the bait will come down, just in case you dont know how to do this, you can use the following equation.

Ingredient cost / ingredient amount(in grams) x amount per kg base mix

As I am just starting to make my own bait again (after relocating all my stuff to the shed after a few years break from stinking out the spare room) I have to get going on a minimum budget, so will be buying the ingredients all from CC Moores in quantities listed with the exception of Selenavite - that will at least get 11kgs of finished bait from the initial outlay, which is £118.24.

Each ingredient for me will then be topped up with 1 scale up of the quantity, i.e 5kgs will be 25kgs, 1kg will be 5kgs etc..

This will bring down the cost massively, for example just on LT94 in a 25kg sack will reduce the cost from 95p per kg to 65p , I have not worked it out yet, but no doubt you can bring it down to under £2.50 per kg of finished bait

Hope that helps people that have not started to make boilies before on how to calculate the costs

Yeah the megablends work fine. I use the red, one thing i will say is that because its quite course i would advise grinding it and the super gold down in a blender as it can cause the bait to break up to easily.

Would any of the Meggablends be ok in BM1? CCMoores have the normal, red and sweet. I was thinking of going along the lines of a mild plum & scopex flavour and thought that the sweet Meggablend might compliment it well?

the only downside of the smurf's recipe is that if you don't use any oil, it's very sticky when you roll it, you need to let it dry a little during 15 to 30 min. before rolling it .

You're not wrong

maize gluten meal is a very dense ingrediant and at 15% it make the bait a good way to sink at the bottom

this recipe won't float and will be eaten by fish

also 17% of soluble ingrediant is not high ! i have also used 20% milk replacer with 10% pre-digested fishmeal and if you balance the recipe, it's not too sticky at the rolling stage and stay on hair for long enough .

the only downside of the smurf's recipe is that if you don't use any oil, it's very sticky when you roll it, you need to let it dry a little during 15 to 30 min. before rolling it .

spoke to a very well respected custom bait roller recently about BM 1. They seemed to think that the solubles were too high and that the bait would float. I mentioned my dismay at their findings and also that the recipe was a long standing one from another well respected (no names were mentioned) bait maker. They didn't reply to that bit but did suggest something lower in solubles.

Thoughts?

that well respected bait maker aint got a clue then, cos 8.5% milk and 8.5% pre digested wont float anything
ive used 15% milks and 10% pre dig along with shrimp and krill and it sank ok.

Taking out your semolina and replacing it with 20% predigested fm I would not recommend. Your taking out your bulk binder and replacing it with a high level soluble ingredient. Even with the other binders in your mix this wont last long in the water.

If you want to make a good fish meal bait I would completely scrap your mix and start off with smurfs recipe!

If you want a fish meal bait but don't want to scrap your other base mix why not fish with bm1 along side your birdynut mix you have?



P.s. STOP SHOUTING!

Absolutely agree, its how it performs that matters, and that's another reason I am not a fan!
My point is that imo it is pointless balancing your amino level with prairie meal as I believe that a lot of those aminos will not be assimilated by the carp. That's just what I think, you obviously think that most of the aminos are usable and that's fine by me.
We will have to agree to disagree! But thanks for the chat

I am not disputing that, I am just saying it will never be as good as a high quality fishmeal or similar!
Unsure why people have such a hard time understanding that




i understand really well what you mean Sam. For you, corn gluten meal will never be as good as a high quality fishmeal or milk protein etc... and i agree ! when it's used alone ...

in this thread, we talk about it combined with fishmeal and both together give a good AA profile, and give a cheaper finished bait, so why using more expensive stuff ? because they are better ?

technical values on a paper are great, but i'm more convinced by my result on the bank and my own experience have proved me that it is not always the most expensive bait or ingrediant that work better

i dont have a hard time-i looked at the bio value of prarie meal against fishmeal years ago-theyres no contest, but as some have mentioned-added with a few other ingredients-amino acid balance up.

then again so does poultry meal-and thats papp imo also .

There could be several reasons its used in aquaculture feeds, it doesn't mean its the best product going

yes and thats essentially as a replacement for the ever increasing cost of fishmeal, prarie meal is a damn sight cheaper !

That is neither here nor there, I am not saying they will not benefit from it, I am saying that in my strong opinion it is not the best product to cover the amino requirements.
The whole point I was trying to make earlier is that I would rather spend extra on the best ingredients. Thats just me, nothing wrong with doing it another way. Smurf put this mix together as a wallet friendly mix I believe, I am sure he will agree that prairie meal is not the best source of protein for carp, having said that maybe he wont agree, Im not sure!
All I know is that it is certainly not for me, not for use of covering aminos anyway. It does have its uses though.

Sam, it's not me that i think 90% of it is available, it's a couple of studies i have read that say it is !!!

yes carp don't have stomach, but it as been found that they can digest the same source of protein as pike or salmonids (that have stomach) and benefit from it .

more than one studies have stated that, it's not new ! why soybean meal or corn gluten meal is used in a lot of commercial pellets for Koï ? if they were less digestible, or the koï will not benefit from those protein source like fishmeal, i think most of the producer will let this meal for ruminant or other food sector and will continue with full of fishmeal pellet.

let see this link: corn gluten meal: 96% digeastible nitrogen for salmonids, i think for carp is not far from that !

You think 90% of it is biologically available????
Why do you think that? The stated 90% is based on animals with complex acidic stomachs, not a simple alkaline tract that is found in carp!
Carp are not equipped to deal with such a source of protein with any efficiency.
Just because it is used in aqua culture feeds does not mean it has a high BV

OK what I meant was I would rather get my protein content from high BV ingredients apposed to things like soya flour and supergold 60.
Supergold 60/ prairie meal is supposed to have a high bv, and maybe it has for cattle etc, but for carp?


Sam, have you ever search after the nutritionnal data of Maize Gluten meal, i don't think ...

it is not a well balanced protein alone, but if you put it with a bit of fishmeal, you will have a very good AA profile.

the fact are that the AA digestibility of maize gluten in fish is high for all AA: from 90 to 94% digestibility ! not a poor biological value ingrediant in my opignion ...

it's used a lot in aquaculture as part of a fishmeal replacer, aquaculture need to grow fish fast and well, so if maize gluten was so poor, it will not be used, result proved that replacing a part of the fishmeal content with maize gluten ended up with the same result on the grow and health of fish.

it's high in methionine, that is often the limiting amino in many mixes.

maize gluten is also really cheap (here in france) compared to fishmeal, so using it can cut the cost down of our bait

OK what I meant was I would rather get my protein content from high BV ingredients apposed to things like soya flour and supergold 60.
Supergold 60/ prairie meal is supposed to have a high bv, and maybe it has for cattle etc, but for carp? I just don't agree with it.
I would rather balance aa profile with things such as higher levels of cpsp90, krill, wpc80, other refined milks, spirulina, high grade liver powder etc etc. No doubt someone will claim that refined milks are not digestible but it is my opinion that they are.
Just my opinion of coarse

You originally said- .....I'm asking for an example of the type of ingredients
But you then said you weren't asking for the ingredients
You also said- I'm not asking you to post up details of your mixes

I am confused but maybe that's the festive drinks! Hopefully I have told you all you needed to know

Don't be so defensive Sam - Im sure nobody thinks you are knocking Peter's mix. I understand what biological value is thanks so can give google a miss on that.

I'm not asking what ingredients have a high biological value. You said in your earlier post that you would prefer a bait with lower crude protein levels but a higher biological value..... I'm simply asking you for an example of such a bait, as it's your stated preference.....can you give one?

I would favour a lower protein bait that has high BV where non of the protein is wasted and amply meets the carps aa requirement. Such a mix would obviously cost more money

Give us an example Sam

Hi Smurf
I have a terrible habit of rubbing people up the wrong way, so I shall tread very carefully with this one!

That is what I meant to say, this is a cheapER mix, I should have said (I was basically saying I am sure you can come up with better)

It is high protein and yes not all of it is available- not quite what I would go for in winter.

Imo in winter it is even more important to not drain the carps system and to get it bob on.
I would favour a lower protein bait that has high BV where non of the protein is wasted and amply meets the carps aa requirement. Such a mix would obviously cost more money

It is very good of you to put a mix up, so please don't think I am slating you.
Would I put a lower protein/ high bv mix up? NO! So I guess that is all I have to say!

Not been carping since the summer so I will answer this from my armchair

the protein content as it is very high in this mix, far too high imo especially considering the amino requirements are not quite met.

I don't quite get this statement....are you sure that says what you meant it to say?

As to 50% crude protein being high...If you take into account the limiting amino acids and if we assume that 80% of the crude protein is digestible (a figure I have used as an 'average', not based on hard facts for this mix) then we have a digestible content of circa 30-35% protein Thats a very good basis for an HNV bait to me

The BM1 is a basis for so many other things i.e. add some liver powder, yeast and shell fish extract for a 'natural' flavoured bait or bulk it out with bird food in the late spring for a high energy bait. You can do lots with this as a base....it doesn't cost much to mix up but that makes it good value not budget

sits back in to armchair again

I prefer lower protein in winter.
Just my opinion and I am not knocking smurf or his mix, he suggested it as a budget mix anyway I think?

My thoughts on it would be, if you are winter fishing with say a hook bait and a two or three bait stringer, i.e. fishing for a bite, and if you are lucky catching A fish, it shouldn't be a problem, but if you are hoofing it in and they are hoovering it up, then I would say lower the oil content.
What are the chances of that though??

reverse psychology on that for me as far as im concerned-i do hoof it in during winter-and ive done pretty well as a result over the last few seasons, i just dont hoof it in whilst fishing-prefer to do it to a regime / frequency if you like around my fishing sessions, but equally you have to respect conditions beeing poorer than better -so you must fish when you feel theyres a chance-milder air temps,periods of lower pressure like the last few days for instance, afternoon sunshine, warmer wind direction-that sorta thing....i hoof it in to keep the fish in certain areas, and to keep them feeding-even if its very limited, those lipids get converted to energy-so i wouldnt take them out of the equation.

im going by smurfs recepie listed, but tweaks(if any) would be small-im not sure it would need an emulsifier, but i cannot see how it would hurt either sam, if to just keep the lipids from clotting.

So you would tweek it then.

Also depends what ingredient options people are using.
If people have chosen sluis clo equivilant and lamlac the oil content would be much higher than other options

i think thats an acceptable level-though i,d deffo use a thinner oil and at about 10-12ml per kg, simply as the mix has -heat treated soya within which retains 20% oil in its treatment.

Fairly high oil in that mix, I wouldn't use it but if I had to I would at least tweak it and pop an emulsifier in there.

That will be for half a kg then I am guessing? still an issue, especially as alot of it will be denatured by boiling

Lots of reasons why it could have caught more, and lots of other ingredients that could be the reason for it catching well

But well done all the same

Definitely mate, can't wait to give it a try and roll my own baits.

I'll probably have a little play around with attractors etc in small batches.

It looks like a good basemix to get started with there is always scope for the odd tweak with the more I learn I suppose.

Cheers for your help

@SamBarley, Yes mate, you are quite right to point that out. I Should have seen that myself. I agree if you take out the Selenavite E, there is not really anything you can replace that whole Vit/Min content with.

@gav1986, I messed around with BM1 and BM2 at the end of last year/beginning of this year, and settled on using the base mix as it is, but with CSL and Molasses as attractor liquids. I did start to add things like Betaine and Robin Red, but in the end i stopped playing around with them, so i could concentrate on the mixes i was putting together for myself.

I'd have to check but i think i settled on BM1 base mix, With CLO instead of Nectarblend, CSL, Molasses MSG and a few drops of Butyric acid. Don't discount BM2 though. I found it to be a cheaper alternative to BM1, and quite liked it once i sorted out a hardness problem.

Both are very good base mixes. Alot of peope owe Smurf a big

Yes i understand that. But if he is swapping it out, why not use something else that may replace some of the vits and mins hes using.

Yes, to take the Selenavite out leaves a big hole in the vit min content, but he asked what he could swap it for.


I wasn't comparing anything.

I understand now, to remove it would remove a high amount of vitamin and minerals. So it's probably better to keep in.

What attractor pack have you added to bm1?

All do completely different things.

Selenavite is used solely for vits and mins, the other ingredients can not come close to the vit/min content that selenavite contains

The other ingredients have other reasons for use, pointless comparing them, its like comparing sprouts to beef

If i was to swap the Selenavite E out, i would probably swap it for another additive that is also high in vitamins and minerals, such as a seaweed product or brewers yeast or something similar. You could also swap it for a spice or herb additive such Fenugreek or Garlic. or even Paprika or Chilli Powder.

Its a vitamin and mineral supplement made for horses. Some would say it makes a difference (me) some would say don't waste your time with it. Either way it is one of the better vit/min supplements to use in base mixes, so either use selenavite, or drop it altogether in favour of another additive/attractor.

Search for Selenavite E instead, but use half as much. A 500g tub is enough to do 20kg of BM1.

It depends how dense/heavy the other ingredients are- w germ is buoyant.
I'm gussing start with 3% with this bm1 mix and work from there.

Talin is my sweetener of choice

Yes mix the flavour with the egg before adding the base mix

First of all, I would certainly get a digestive aid in there, wheat germ is a cheap one with plenty of info available on it.
Even more important at this time of year.

Flavour wise it is worth using a sweetener with one, inclusion rates are on bottles.
Better still forget a flavour and add some garlic or chili instead- cheap and very effective

Sorry to bring up an old thread.

I'm looking to roll my own, using smurfs bm1, at this stage I won't tweak it at all.

My question is about flavour/attractor. Do I only need to add my flavour, such as scopex or a fruit like nutrabsits wonderfruit? Or do I need to add anything with it?

Never rolled before so just need pointing in the right direction and ill try and work things out myself.

Can you give inclusion rates in a 1kg base mix?

2.5% betaine = 25 grams

That much betaine Chop it down to 0.5% ... 5g is sufficient, MAX 10g.

I divided the mix that smurf posted and divided it by 9 (9eggs) to get the 1 egg mix - i used 1 large egg and it was perfect , not sticky at all . I used nectarblend instead of megablend , that was the only difference to original recipe

15% (supergold 60) = 150 grams
13% megablend= 130 grams
10% Semolina = 100 grams
10% Soya flour (heat treated) = 100 grams
8.5% pre-digested fishmeal = 85 grams
8.5% lamlac = 85 grams
2.5% Selenavite E = 25 grams
1 % betaine = 10 grams (EDIT...it was 10g,i just checked and smurf said drop it to 10g)
10% rred = 100 grams

3 mil of monster crab liquid
10 mil of hemp oil to help with rolling

this is my mix and something is making the mix really sticky after gunning it out,

You will get mixed advice RE betaine levels, my advice is do not go over 50 grams per ten kg of base mix.

What betaine will you be using?

Made my 1st batch of BM1 today . A 1egg mix as I have never made boilies before. They turned out amazing , gunned out and rolled really easily.

So a big thank you to everyone who has contributed to this very informative thread

I did not add any other ingredients but will probably add a couple of attractor powders to my next "big" batch, thinking of betaine and L030 powder . Can anyone recommend how much of these would go into the base mix ?

Whey gel for me everytime where hard hookers needed, drives out moisture and gives a harder finished bait throughout than standard wpc80.

Between 5 and 10% egg albumin and/or WPC should be fine. Otherwise as he says....hookbaits only

You can make hardened hookbaits by adding 10% Egg albumin.
Do this only on the hookbaits.
Soft baits are more attractive in my mind the rock solid ones.

In reply to Post #248
Just done a session with the BM1 that was slower than the previous one shall we say and one thing I have noticed is that they go too soft for my liking as hookbaits and invariably I was winding in an empty rig in the morning. Currently I am boiling for 90 seconds then drying for 24. I now realise the situation may have been made worse because I had then put them in an airdry bag when I got to he lake. From what I have read on here it appears that the drier the bait the quicker it takes on water and goes soft quicker?? Thoughts??

Also from my searching on here it looks like you can add Egg Albumin or Whey Protein Concentrate to toughen them up a bit.

What would you recommend for inclusion rates in the BM1 mix to get the desired effect? Also, would it be best to make up separate batches of hookbaits for the purpose or make the whole mix tougher, if you see what I mean?

If you want the optimal dosage of MSG for a nutritional bait it would be zero% but in almost every bait I have made I use a heaped teaspoon in 1kg.

Nice baits there. My first attempts at bait making (admittedly over 20 years ago) looked nothing like that. Misshapen sticky balls would be more accurate!

Must get round to knocking some of this up. Did you follow Smurf's exact recipe?

I think I"ve read that right . If you want to use minamino at 30mill, red venon at 30mill and hempoil at 20mill thats a hell of a lot liquids if its for a 1kg mix. You will get a very soft bait that wont last very long in the water.

thanks for the advice. i will definatly grate some belachan in with the eggs and will use the good oil and minamino. i think i will leave out any spice for the moment as with the reviews this bait has had so far i dont think it needs it (sorry to mess you about).

i will order the bits friday and whip up a batch

Ive always seen bait making as a feel good factor for not being able to get out fishing as much as you'd like to. Put it like this, i never made my own bait before missus's, kids, mortgages, full time working so on and so on. At least your doing something fishing related right......??

i might be over complicating things.

If you wanted to grate some Balachan into the eggs when your making your bait, thats fine. I do something similar in some high attract singles i make. Then just use the minamino at the reccomended level, and 20-25ml/kg of Good Oil.

I can't remember if the minamino is multi nutra fosfor syrup, ppc or whatever else it might be So cant really remeber if its the one you can really whack in.

As for the 'kick' as you put it, i don't know. I don't think such things matter underwater and think if carp do like that sort of thing, its for some other reason than taste, maybe vitamins, PH changes?? I'd just use some chilli powder or crushed chilli seeds out the supermarket for that sort of thing if you really needed to.

instead of using red venom as the kick could i use a chilli powder or robin red at all and just up the minamino to around 50ml.

i was also considering adding a bit of grated belachan paste although i think i might be over complicating things.

Can't help with the Red Venom, i've never used it.

30ml of Minamino sounds like a good start. Got a feeling you may be able to up that a bit. I dont think i'd go any lower with it TBH.

I like the 'Good Oil' at 20ml per kilo. It is the best hemp oil going IMO.

i worked it out at about 5 quid a kilo if i use 30 ml of both minamino and red venom. the hemp oil is the good oil stuff from tesco.

was just wondering really if 30ml of each would be enough. i have used minamino in baits before and its fantastic stuff. the red venom is down to the fact i prefer having a good kick of chilli in there aswell

minamino and red venom from cc moores

Not looking for a cheap bait then?

Why not keep the Hemp oil at 20-25ml/kg, and add some CSL again 20-25ml/kg from AA Baits

£10 for liquids that will do 20kg of basemix, and it'll still be as good as it can be.

Horrible stuff that brown blood powder. I think i may have some of that in the shed. Its all a little irrelevent at the min, as i have lost my base mix mixer. I was mixing base 10 or 20kg a time in a brand new concrete mixer my mate (builder) had in his shed as a spare. But his old one broke, so now hes using the one i was using.

Its gonna be hard mixing base in a big bucket after using that mixer. Nothing mixes base mix ingredients like a concrete mixer.

No I mean the standard blood powder, it will sort out your flaa as well, not sure how much of a problem you are having but looking at your mix you shouldn't be having lots of trouble

Are you using lots of liquids?

Maybe try wpc80 too, bare in mind both of these products are very solubole

Why, do you think blood powder alone will be enough to bind the mix im already struggling with plus the extra limestone flour? The white plasma powder i assume you mean? Does it bind that well? Ill see if i can get hold of some. Cheers.

Use some blood powder, pop some lime stone flour in to gain distance in a stick

Am i doing something wrong with BM2? It seems dry and splits easily between light finger pressure when its rolled and boilied. Must admit it rolls like a champ. For the distance im fishing at the moment it needs to be harder and bound tighter. Would either egg albumen, whey gel, blood plasma do the trick without compromising the nutrional value to much? Which one would you use?

Are you trying to make 2/20kg with them levels your using?

Are you going to be using 25g (2.5%) per kilo? that seems a little low to me for the GLM. The more the better IMHO.

I always found 5%+ to be a good level to start at. I think in this quite strong smelling mix, 5% would be better to get the smell to come through.

Thats how I used to roll it but you would be amazed how different people have slightly different technics that mean some use 9 eggs when others would squeeze in another

As Ken says start with 9 eggs, add any liquids and weigh your base mix before and after to find out how much you actually use....if you like the end baits keep making them the same way

And GLM goes very well with this mix....as do many fruit or sweet (cream, chocolate etc) flavors
