Big Carp Boilie Bait Recipes And Secret Keys To Addictive Baits!
by: Tim Richardson

Why do humans eating meat and suffer diseases while vegetarians avoid such protein-related diseases? Why in contrast do carp naturally thrive on protein foods and why are they so sensitive to substances such natural foods release and how do we go about seriously exploiting these things in our baits so we can catch many more big fish in reality? All is revealed - so read on!

Ultimately we are the product of the vital energy sources we have evolved alongside and have predominantly been dependant upon; and carp are just the same. Just remember for a second that by constant evolution over millions of years, we only see a miniscule number of all the creatures that have ever lived. Most will never show up in fossil records and the chances of finding a so-called human missing link are next to zero.

The creatures that died out due to non-disaster causes will most frequently have died out because their modifications and adaptations to their environment and gathering of vital energy in whatever forms they took, simply failed to enable them to survive to pass on their particular genome. All creatures are subject to predation or diseases and if the mechanisms for survival are not evolved and refined sufficiently it is very probable such creatures will not pass on their genes in future generations and will go extinct.

Most people do not realise that man as a species is a work in progress - and so are carp. For example anyone will have noticed the increase in height in the last 20 years of humans in well fed western countries. In some people vestiges of previous adaptations such as sixth fingers or extra rows of teeth are manifest at birth and we all have spine vertebrae extensions that shows we used to have tails for example.

The growth rates and sizes of carp in the UK and in other countries has skyrocketed in response to many multiple factors. Whereas in the 1970’s and early 1980’s the average UK carp angler would very often have been overjoyed to catch 20 twenty pound carp in a year or even 5; because such big fish waters were few and anyway the carp in them mostly did not exceed the low thirty pounds and most only held a few twenties at best and only the odd far rarer thirty.

In fact during this period most average carp anglers never even saw a thirty pound carp or even visited a carp holding more than 2 or three thirty pound fish, let alone caught one. On one syndicate water I fished it took me 8 years of consistent very regular fishing to catch my first thirties from there simply because they did not grow to that weight until that time - and this has been the case all around the country. Such fish are now in the forties and above and it is taken for granted, but those fish average 25 to 30 years of age or more. In fact my results went from zero twenties from there in a year circa 1983 when the biggest fish in there was 19 pounds, to catching 20 fish averaging 19.12 pounds caught in just one incredible 5 day session that included the biggest in the lake (at around 35 pounds back in 1992), that rightly was my last ever session there. (This was at Shotgate reservoir in Essex.)

Of course all sounds crazy to newer carp anglers today. A complete beginner can go to any of the new brand of commercial instant carp angler fisheries armed with readymade baits and all the fancy over-priced rods and reels and bivvies and alarms etc and hook thirties, forties and even fifties and above. Such fisheries really were not a great part of the scene not that long ago.

I cannot complain about the huge numbers foreign fish now in the UK; it has allowed far more anglers access to big fish without having to fish for over thirty years as I have, but it does totally belittle catches of smaller fish which may in the past have been some of the mostly highly regarded, most significant and difficult fish to catch in the countries best known carp waters from the past. I vividly remember the season I first caught 2 English thirties in a season; I’m not so sure of the year I first caught over ten thirties from a commercial water although I do certainly remember the year I caught ten forties from a certain well-known commercial water.

But frankly the 20 forties I have banked to date from UK commercial waters do not compare with the achievement of my first thirty because of how many years it took to catch it, even though captures of some of my forties were the result of some of the most intelligent fishing and bait designing I have ever done.

Probably one of the biggest most dangerous problems imported foreign fish is the mixing of slightly differently adapted carp immune systems and carp bloodlines etc in response to various conditions, diseases and parasites etc. And we all already know about the koi herpes viruses and spring veremia which have tragically killed many carp both imported and already in lakes here.

Also very much comes down to opinions in regard to when exactly does a carp count as an English carp – perhaps if it is imported as a fingerling as were many of the countries biggest carp, or maybe when their next generation are adults perhaps? As we have no indigenous carp and they are all imported ultimately maybe the only true English ones might be considered the original wild carp. The irony is that these are notoriously slow-growing compared to other strains and to catch even a double-figure truly wild carp would be a fantastic feat – if you could find any that is!

Anyway, the arguments continue, but clean inspected and legal carp are in the modern carp fishing system and here to stay – not many angler realise how much corruption of fisheries has taken place over the decades and just a few of the big carp most of us know of by name are not necessarily fully English; if you get my meaning. It is a fact that even clean certificated foreign fish can still pass on factors which can kill our indigenous fish because the scientists do not know everything about them yet in order to identify them!

Considering it can take a carp over 30 years to realise its potential as a sport fish and such a fish can be lost in an instant is something every carp angler has great reason to be concerned about, but having said that, carp are an incredibly adaptive species and beneficial often seemingly minor genetic changes and mutations occur in humans and carp all the time; after all what are koi carp, ghost carp, goldfish and mirror and leather carp (and all king carp) after all?

Having strayed so far from the original path of this piece, as you may have surmised, carp have been an all-consuming passion of mine for most of my 46 years and noticing that carp are on a development and learning curve just like us humans is extremely interesting. We are adapted to be able to sense the most energy-efficient foods that keep us alive and carp are just the same.

But in the case of us humans, our physical limbs, bodies, and digestive systems have evolved to utilise carbohydrates to a predominant degree. Carp in contrast are incredibly highly adapted to get the most out of protein foods. When you think about it the logic is simple.

Here are just a few obvious but vital differences to appreciate between humans and carp: Here we are inefficiently air-breathing into big energy-sapping lungs in a body walking on land, with a huge requirement for energy because we have gravity to content with and we are warm-blooded so we are always expending energy just to keep our body temperature stable enough to stay alive. Fish do not waste energy maintaining a constant body temperature that is different to the water surrounding them, and they have a swim bladder to automatically their depth against water pressure and not gravity.

Carp gills are highly energy-efficient; their rate of respiration, metabolism, movements, feeding and digestion are all directly linked to water temperatures which govern their entire existence through the changing seasons. You could say carp are a direct reflection of their surroundings, whilst we constantly keep trying to adapt and control our surroundings to make us more energy efficient – and in doing so end up poisoning the land, the air we breathe and the water we drink – not so clever eh?! Its time to use that secret free energy technology certain parties are hiding and for electricity, gas, and oil companies to give up their strangle hold on us before prices really do become insane and precipitate a new (last) world war!

I used to study climatology as part of my years of professional horticultural studies. I plotted all the average winter temperatures for the past 100 years to compare them, because I was trying to forecast which plants there would most be a market for in the future and also see how fishing conditions differed from the Eighties going back decades and decades ago.

What I discovered seriously alarmed me because I realise of course that strange anomalous changes can occur and temperature fluctuations have often happened over periods of thousands of years in the past, and ice-ages can suddenly appear following sustained much warmer periods, but these can be analysed and the causes can be strongly justified. However, the temperature rises I saw from the 1970s to the early Eighties were nothing short of shocking - this was 10 years before I ever heard of any scientists whispering about global warming! I have experienced growing seasons and animal and bird and insect behaviours changing immensely and foreign bird and even the dangerous false widow spider are thriving and over-wintering in the UK now.

Its things like this that tell me it is time we changed our behaviour too! Anyway, part of the adaptation to such climate change has been more frequent and more consistent feeding from earlier and later in many recent years than previously; often right through some winters (such as the recent warmest ones on record!)

Any experienced carp angler who has fished regularly enough for the last couple of decades and longer has observed the changing in timings of traditional carp binge feeding. In fact look at the amount of persistent weed growth in many lakes in recent years, even through the winters. Considering this imagine just how much natural food is spared by the vast number of anglers baits introduced each year and the intricate relationship between so many carp food organisms and weed growth just for starters, and you see part of the bigger picture of why carp are growing so big today and how they are changing right now!

Along with all this though is the question of how carp actually detect their food. I am not going to go into this very much because my bait secrets ebooks cover this kind detail in many ways. But consider the implications of this; carp can detect chilli bioactives using specialised sensory pits along their lateral line and use special senses in the same region to actually detect the most energy-efficient concentration of extremely nutrient-rich extremely digestible plankton and even the most suitable bloodworm concentrations in certain situations for the most energy-efficient feeding.

Carp senses of taste and smell are incredibly adapted and far better than even a bloodhounds, detecting some substances down to a few parts per billion. Carp see partly into the ultraviolet and infrared ranges of the light spectrum and use a kind of echo-sounding system to orient themselves in the water and further detect their location, objects, prey and predators; yes carp definitely are carnivorous at times and not simply omnivores.

Anyway, lots more can be said, but the point is that they are the product of countless adaptations refined and re-refined over and over again over generations and generations and as such are the supreme version to date of their form as reflections of their environment. But they are not ever static even today and it is actually possible to make carp more sensitive to certain food components and substances so they even more readily detect them and even alter their behaviours and modes of feeding to feed on baits designed by man rather than just feeding on natural foods that carp have fed on naturally for generations.

This is a big point; both we and carp have the ability to detect and sample foods and suggestions of potential food sources even though they may not represent food we have experienced before. This means that we and carp can not only detect betaine, an amine that is naturally a part of us and critical to our survival, but we can also detect completely new substances because our sensory proteins in our sensory cells can adapt to a degree. We do not know the full story either and marine biologists and fish scientists etc are learning more about fish behaviours and adaptations all the time.

By constantly baiting a fishing bait containing certain substances it is possible to change many carp taste preferences and taste is far more important in many ways than smell in water compared to air. It has been shown over and over again that bait palatability is a vital component of successful baits that carp are extremely willing to consume repeatedly – so giving you best chances of takes and more fish as a result.

Taste adaptation is just one ability carp have that is also common with us humans. Think about it because this is one huge edge and one I use in literally all my baits today in whatever forms!

This is whether it is topping popular readymade baits, or more usually designing and making my own homemade boilies, pellets, ground baits, particle preparations, and unique bioactive nutritionally-stimulating bait dips, complexes and flavour preparations and so on.

I will stop here with this thought; try eating foods for 2 weeks that contain no sugar, no salt, no yeast extract, no spices or spice or herb extracts, no milk and no wheat (that is just for starters.) Or simply avoid all caffeine or alcohol for 2 weeks; notice how you feel and you will find your body, brain chemistry and consequent behaviours had become addicted to an unexpected degree.

Now do you see how addictive carp baits can really be beyond simple taste, smell, biological convertibility of proteins, first to third amino acids etc! (For more see my big carp and catfish bait secrets bibles at Baitbigfish.)
