Guys a complete crackpot. Boilies work thats the simple fact of the matter. Obviously other baits work too but it comes down to personal preference.

Over two grand!!! Wow, wasn't so long ago I fished it for two or three quid a day. That is a scam now it's so expensive. I suppose the underwater video there put a change to all that, always was a syndicate along one part of the lake but if I remember rightly it was a couple of hundred quid.

Iíd have thought £2200 for a welly tickets got to be up there. I know itís stacked with kippers but the place isnít even secure. I know itís very trendy to fish park lakes/ urban waters, but if Iím spending over 2k on a ticket Iíd want my gear and me to be a bit protected from pikies and crackhead gangsters.

Leon Hoogendijk is a Dutch guy that lives in France, known for catching carp on big rivers. As you may know, fishing on large rivers require heavy duty materials. Hence the big rodpod.

10 minutes on the right place is worm 10 days in the wrong place


So what bait is better than WORM and will catch in 10 minutes as opposed to 10 days using a worm.

There was a guy on my local years ago, turned up same sort of time as I did cos I could only fish days due to the amount of thieving going on and being only 16 at the time the old dear wouldnít let me night fish. Anyway this chap was known as Jesus due to his very long dark hair and beard. He would turn up at 5am quietly wander round bait a few margin spots with pellets and keep checking and then when he had fish feeding simple inline lead, hair rigged two dog biscuits and a shot thatís it and he would catch more in a season than the guys doing a week at a time no problem

Pukka pies. Only followed closed my a pork pie.


Boiles are bit of scam but you pay for the convince of it. We all know that particles catch fish and boiles catch fish just depends on what people what to use and can afford. I'm gonna try and do a season just on particles this year (mostly tiger nuts) because I'm tighter then ducks ****

I agree with him. It is a scam. No angling celeb will tell you this as they probably have a bait deal with some boilie company, and any wannabe celebs or Youtube bloggers trying to get sponsored won't tell you this either.

Thereís a place for particles at certain times of the year and thereís a place for boilies as well. Itís a stupid statement to say that either is a waste of time.

I take issue with his statement that you are wasting time buying a shop bought boilie when a ball of groundbait and eggs will do. Of course a ball of groundbait and pellet will do on certain waters and certain times but heís completely missing the point. The greater number of different attractors you add in to a bait, both powdered and liquid, with different leak off rates at different temps and water PH, the greater chance that one of those attractors will work on a given day. If you make a ball of scolded pellet up, and bugger all else, what good is it if the water temps too low and it locks in the oil content, or protein/aminos and itís next to useless. I tell you what happens, they guy fishing next to you with a balanced bait of milks and carbs and sugars and fish meal and amino liquids makes you look a dick with your oh so clever ball of groundbait. Itís like this guy has absolutely no idea that thousands of big fish from rock hard waters have been caught on quality boilies, he just ignores this cos you can also catch them on corn in the right circumstances. Doh,,

Then letís get onto actually keeping a bait in the water. Letís seehow well you do on a gin clear 6ft deep gravel pit with 200 coots, swans and tuffties using nothing buy bright yellow corn.

Heís clearly got no idea about flavour either. Does he not realise itís the chemical make up of the flavours thatís adding to the attraction? Or does he think the carp actually believes it a pineapple? Etc. He says shop bought baits are a scam cos people catch on snowman rigs, er hello what the **** is a snowman made from then?

Sorry the guys mugged himself off big time.

I know a bloke that goes round catching carp using a float and lumps of white bread !

I have seen him go round at first light while most are tucked up snoring in their bivvys catching 2 or 3 carp around the lake and buggering off while the people in the bivvys were totally unaware

Heís right about the price of some bait companyís. Over £10 a kg is ludicrous in todayís market. Boilies
are a convenient bait for us due to the shape weight and being readily available. Easy to catapult and so on there is a whole list of proís to using them.

Of course the carp like them, and a decent bait will have health benefits also. So while some of itís true itís certainly over the Top.
