Crab anD oYs­ter boilie

Anglers Mail - - Front Page -

I wanted to give the crab boilie an ex­tra boost, to give it more of an edge. Af­ter lots of ex­per­i­men­ta­tion, I came up with a recipe whereby I in­creased the amount of crab meat and added some oys­ter sauce, whilst still re­tain­ing the orig­i­nal base mix. This lat­est ver­sion has worked ex­cep­tion­ally well for carp and cat­fish, and it just goes to show that a bait can al­ways be en­hanced.

My wife and I both pre­fer us­ing paste to boilies, as we tend to fish fairly short ses­sions, and be­lieve that cook­ing a paste can de­na­ture it, low­er­ing the pro­tein con­tent dur­ing the boil­ing process.

When fish­ing us­ing hair-rigged boilies, we wrap them with the paste, and we also like to fish a hair-rigged cork ball wrapped in paste, for ef­fec­tive re­sults.

■ The ad­di­tion of oys­ter sauce gave the recipe an ex­tra di­men­sion, prov­ing ir­re­sistible to cat­fish and carp.
