Boilies

Carp fishing boilies are one of the best and most popular carp fishing baits. Boilies are made by boiling a ball-shaped mix of ingredients to make a hard-boiled bait. Boilies were the brainchild of carp anglers in the late 70s who came up with the idea of using a hard bait to keep unwanted small fry fish like bream and trench from eating the bait intended for the carp.

Carp Boilies

Carp boilies are typically made with dairy proteins, semolina, and fish meal. The blend is then combined with eggs for binding. Boilie manufacturers often add attractors to the mix to make it more appealing to carp. As a hard bait, boilies last well without disintegrating in the water.

Carp boilies are ball-shaped because the cylindrical shape makes it easy for fishers to catapult the bait into the desired spot in the water.

Another advantage of boilies is they can be infused with bright colours to attract carp from further away and make it easy for the fish to see the bait in murky waters.

Pop-up Boilies

Pop-ups are floating boilies, which hover above the lakebed. This makes it simple for the fish to find and eat the bait.

Anglers use pop-ups boilies in various situations, one being when there are weeds on the lakebed. One recommended strategy is to use pop-ups together with a regular boilie in a ‘snowman’ rig. The pop-up should be smaller than the standard boilie to make a “critically balanced bait”, easy for carp to bite.

Freezer vs. Shelf-Life Boilies

There are two types of boilies to choose from, freezer or shelf life. Shelf-life boilies contain preservatives so that they can be stored at room temperature for long periods.

Boilies without preservatives are known as freezer boilies, as these must be stored short-term in a fridge or long-term in a freezer. Otherwise, they will quickly go off.

Both frozen and shelf-life boilies have their pros and cons. Many carp fishers believe shelf-life boilies are less nutritious than freezer boilies and less useful.

The downside of freezer boilies is they must be kept frozen to conserve freshness. This can be problematic on a long fishing trip. Despite this disadvantage, freezer boilies are the preferred type for many seasoned anglers.

However, shelf-life boilies are gaining popularity. Due to advancements in food technology, shelf-life boilies now have almost the same nutritional content as freezer boilies. Their main advantage is they do not need special storage requirements.

Because of the additional nourishment, freezer boilies usually are more expensive than their shelf-life counterparts.

Boilie Sizes

Boilies come in many sizes, from 6mm micro boilies to 40 mm boilies. The best size to use depends on the size of fish you want to bait. If you are a beginner going for small carp, boilies up to 10 mm in diameter are a good bet. Medium boilies, measuring around 14-18 mm, are the most favoured for catching medium-sized fish, weighing between 5 and 10 kilograms. It would be best if you only used the bigger boilies for baiting big carp.

Boilie Flavours

Boilies are available in many flavours, both sweet and savoury. The flavour of savoury boilies is more familiar to fish, making them less likely to suspect the bait, but sweet boilies also have their advantages.

During warm months, a strong-smelling savoury bait is a good choice. But during cold months, a sweet flavour may be preferred because fish eat much less in the winter, and a savoury oily bait will leave them feeling full faster and unlikely to take further bait.

Our boilies contain an excellent blend of attractors and nutrition to fatten carp and entice them to your hook.
