So you are looking to keep ahead of anglers just as much as the fish. This means you ideally have to be utilizing a slightly alternative approach at all times to keep maximising your catch rates.
This is not difficult, actually very easy as long as you think fish not angler. It is surprising just what a big carp will eat when it is not really scared of it! Yes all baits are found in cycles, as one catches and fades another gets picked-up on by the majority. (Especially with various kinds of boilies and pellets.)
I do not mean to rock your boat but...What is your favourite bait flavour? This opinion is generally predicated on personal past successful catch experiences or recommendations. But is it possible to improve on simply this, to redouble your catches hugely, in an increasingly competitive environment? Perhaps therefore:
Many fishermen get fixated on flavours, mistakenly thinking that if they can smell them and they smell good to them, then carp will like them too. But there are plenty of variables (some unknowns) involved here and no-one actually knows what flavours really smell and taste prefer to a carp.
The scientists can trigger carp meals receptors in tests and tell us numerous substances that will activate a carp to feed, or alter its behaviour in some way that makes it better to catch them, (change human brain chemistry and switch them on etc,) but this data does not translate evenly into making and exploiting carp baits. What does a carp think?!
Well now perhaps its time to get further into a carps human brain and body, by exploiting particular ingredients, in order for you to compete and catch them more effectively but benefit them too you will notice what I mean in an instant....
Would most carp anglers use algae flavour or a flavour that would make you feel sick like something well fermented would? I doubt it!
When fishing, many anglers fish the same flavour in all their boilie baits in a swim and do not vary their bait flavour amounts for different hook baits, on different rods, in various areas of a water. Flavours work better in different levels at different temperatures and in different waters; and even in different parts of different waters.
How and just why these flavours actually achieve carp takes is so irrelevant to many fishermen that they miss an enormous area of know-how that would net them loads more seafood at different times of the entire year. [Here are clues to great bait features and most could be made basically from batik keris online larder substances with a couple of commercial carp fishing products added!]
I have to add here that so lots of the carp bait substances have acid-forming characteristics, including: milk, butter, cheese, casein, whey, malted milk products, all pectin preserved or sugared fruits, dried sulphured glazed fruits, white beans, soy coffee beans, mushrooms, all meats, gelatin, fowl and fish, shellfish. Exploiting for example the cinnamic acid in cinnamon and (coumarate - an enzyme in turmeric.) (Megaspice and Bunspice B are good.) Significant levels of salicylic acid can be in yeast extract; a great carp attractor!
