Hi I have been doing some research on groundbaits for Carp
I have tried making them on my own .Rescently I tried

(Dog food + brown sugar solution + some vanilla and samolina )
But they dont seem to be much effective .
could any one please suggest me some ground bait formula.
Ofcourse which contains something easily avilable here in Bangalore
and really effective.

Thanks to you all fellow anglers in advance.

Wish you all a happy healthy and prosparous new year with lots of fishing.

Hi fishergomian!!!!!

you can use rice husk(konda) as ground bait. it is easily available in market if u do a little enquiry. just mix konda with water till it absorb the water properly and leave it for a day or two in order to get the smell for attracting fish.


I am using it in nagpur from past two years and ya it works for various carps.

cheers
manish.

I use chickpeas or dried corn softned in water for 24 hours then boiled for 15-60 minuttes depending on how soft i want it, remember too but some sugar or honey in the water.

Are you after a ground bait or an attractor ?
Put another way, are you trying to hold passing fish in an area and get them feeding on your free offerings so that you can present a bait to them or are you trying to disperse a smell into the water that will draw in fish and encourage them to feed.
For groundbaiting, cooked rice or bread with whatever flavourings you fancy will be fine. You can even intruduce some regularly over a few days and then intruduce your baited hooks when you have time to fish. This aclimatises the fish to your offerings and to feeding in a particular spot.
For attractors, there are lots of flavours that will work but the one that was always popular when I used to match fish was aniseed - and it was always sweetened. As star anise is easily available in India, I would be inclined to drop some in the spice grinder and add this and some dark sugar or molases to some bread or buscuit crumb and a little water so that it can easily be thrown into your swim. The trick is little and often so that you create a cloud of flavour that will draw fish in.
Another option is a meaty/fishy flavour. A good handfull of dried prawns/shrimp ground up and added to your crumb mix should do the job.
Obviously species and their habits differ so a little experimentation is called for.

There are many kind of ground baits which you can use to attract Carps and I would love to share some of them here.

1---

2 part soil from the side of Lake.
1 part ground 'oil cake" preferably rosted.
1 part bread crumb
1/2 liter sugar syrup.

2---

Add 1 part cake crumb to the above.

3---

Ghee residue mixed with mud. (The above two are feed based and this one is smell based.)

4---

Beaten rice (Pooha) soaked over night mixed with mud.

5--

Cooked rice (Keep it in a box for two or three days so as it is fermented). You can use it directly or mixed with mud.

You have to identify the place where to ground bait with some care and persist with a mix.

Best of luck.

Ali.


:P
