This simple basic recipe works well in rivers or lakes and is simple and easy to make. It is easy to add more or less flavor. I like strawberry or almost any sweet fruti flavor, the flavors can be Koolaide, cake flavors or even specially made European style carp bait flavors.
Equal parts corn meal, semolina and soy flour
Enough eggs to make it into a dough
Any bait flavor including Koolaide, cake flavors or carp bait flavors, just enough to be able to smell it in the dough
A little artificial sweetner like Equal
A few drops of food coloring
1/4 tablespoon of vegetable oil for each egg
Mix eggs, flavor, sweetner and food coloring.
Add premixed flour to make a stiff dough and wrap in saran wrap.
Let set up for 10 - 15 minutes at room temperature.
Roll into sausages and roll into balls or flatten to about 1/2 inch thick and cut into cubes.
Boil for about 1 - 2 minutes depending on how big the balls are, about 2 minutes for 20mm boilies, less for smaller ones.
Let cool on a cloth dish towel a couple of hours or overnight.
Boilies can then be used or even frozen.
A little tip, put a handfull of dried white rice in with the boilies you are taking fishing with you to keep them drier
Remember to write down everything in your recipe!! If you catch a BFC you will want to be able to recreate your bait again!!
