Hey Zimbo,

As you can see the carp fishermen are secretive chaps :lol: Ingrideients that go into their bait are often closely guarded secrets, rightly so, as most of them catch big fish in water where one wouldn't even catch a chilwa.

Hey Zimbo,

Search through the site and you'll find a lot of recipes. I am sure I have read many. I think the only problem you'll face is figuring out the English names of the ingredients and where to buy them. For example it took me a long time to figure out where I could get the residue of rape/mustard seeds once the oil had been squeezed out.
Other popular ingredients are - vanilla, bajara seeds, hemp seeds, sweet rusk soaked in rum, mustard oil, dried rice, wheat bran, etc. The trick is to get the fish used to any of these mixes first and that takes time.

cheers

Hi Zimbo, most tackle shops carry ready to use berley at about $5 per pkt but the quantity won't fill the fishes grinder! So go to your local farm produce shop and buy a bulk bag of chook pellets and while you are there get some oil cake[normally called cattle food.Put half a bucket of chicken pellets in a 20 litre plastic container[old paint bucket] and add about 1/4 bucket of water and leave overnight and you will find that this will swell to twice it's volume as the pellets soften. Don't put too much water otherwise you will get a soupy mix. Add some Tuna oil, say about 1/2 a cup full and knead in about a kg of atta[wheat flour],enough to make the whole mix into a heavy, doughy consistency. There you have it! Make up some tennis ball or golf ball size balls and throw into the area of the lake you are fishing at regular intervals, with the original or start of the day amount being a good, generous supply. Don't forget to concentrate in and around your fishing spot.If you are fishing running water then throw in closer to the bank and cast in downstream. Maybe your balls of berley can be squeezed around a small stone or pebble so they will readily sink and take the berley down. The oil cake can be prepared in similar recipe except use warm water to soak overnight.By the way, you can add left over food scraps to your berley as well. Stuff like stale Cooked rice, etc.
Happy fishing Zimbo!
Glenn.
PS.
Why are you targetting carp when the best trout fishing can be had in NZ? Or snapper off the beaches?

Try mixing a spoonful of Peanut paste and cheese spread in your dough baits. Also honey is good.Don't put too much otherwise the bait will get too soft and the fish will be laughing. A tiny pinch of asafoetida[perangaium] will also serve as an attractant. But watch your hands as it is difficult to get rid of the odour and scented baits may be considered illegal in NZ, especially in a fishing comp. Anniseed oil also comes to mind.Just a drop or two is required.
Cheers and happy fishing hours in beautiful NZ.
