Yep, no different from any other colour - make my own pop ups and hook baits, always have. A nice bright blue work just fine, was using that colour 25 years ago and still do - seems (he says) more effective in colder water, no idea why.

Iíve used the mullberry ones and they are very good and also heard good things about the peanut and strawberry ones. A few people on my local lakes have been doing well on them so would use any with confidence

Caught on some "smurf blue" colour baits, however going either side of that, washed out, ala "man city blue" or more dark like "chelsea blue" got not a sniff. (not trying to be funny, just don't know the technical names for the colours ) - using insoluble pigments was necessary as once washed out again the results dropped. having said that, red, orange, pink, yellow, white and black all outperformed it, to my eyes. same recipe too kept very simple to test colours

Really weird.


And yes sticky baits did produce a blue cheese and onion pop up, I believe it was onion oil and butyiric acid plus a cheese flavour? also it's still owned by the Andersons of erics angling, Sam sold it to his brother Tom who grew it massively into the company it is now.

We used to dye chick peas blue and used to do well on it.

I did try some home made NS1 blues a few years back and compared to white NS1's it didn't do well.

I was.told blue is more effective in deeper water, but I don't know if this is true.

🤣🤣 I stopped the experiment when my dog ate a large amount of freshly rolled baits and was crapping blue for a week

Blue is the one that has the highest contrast underwater due to the short wavelengths penetrating deeper into the water. In general, the other side of the spectrum is more visual for the carp since their eyesight is the most sensitive for wavelengths at the range of 600 - 650nm (orange-red)

I remember Frank warrick said something similar. They are just difficult to sell because they don't look carpy, people are never convinced.

Iím sure there was a test done years ago in CW that showed Blue was the most attractive colour to carp .....

Yep!

I made some blue boilies using standard food colouring. Interesting result in that I could see the fish were crapping it out on the mat when others using the same uncoloured version weren't catching as much.

The old Richworth Blue Cheese was a yellow bait if I remember rightly.
Used to love that bait. Blue Cheese 18mm with a snowman with Richworth Birdfood Blend as the topper. Happy days those were!
