The list must be endless, lol! Maples, lupins, chic-peas, brazil nuts, hazel nuts, macadamia nuts, certain floaties(lol), halibut pellet (mounted using bait floss), and offcourse plastic baits.

As input from the other experienced specimen anglers frequenting this forum lacks, I invite all newbies and other anglers to participate in this thread so that we can make it one others can learn from.

Hallo Manne

Ek het all manne gekry wat hengel met gekookde kwartel eiers en sukses daarmee gehad... Moet se ek het ook al gelees oor n seker UK Hengelaar wat ook met gekookde eiers hengel.

Die artappel het ek al hoor van die manne kook dit in n garlic botter en kry vis op die hair. Die cherrys het ek ook al van gehoor.

Dink die mees einaardigste hookbait wat ek al gesien het was Jelly Tots op die hair...lol het nie lank gebly om te sien of hulle vis gekry het nie maar sou graag wou weet.

"Carp are basically greedy pigs that will eat anything that is thrown to them".

Die kwotasie kom van 'n old school' hengelaar wat blykbaar al vir dekades een van die meer suksesvol ouens in die UK is (per Ken Townly). Die klem is natuurlik op die "thrown TO them" en nie net "trown into the water" nie...

Aartappels was boilies se voorgangers en is wyd gebruik. Andre Dicks het 'n 30lb karp gevang met 'n aartappel op die GFG dvd's. Kaas, ham, hondebeskuitjies en gedroogte vrugte is algemene hoekase in die UK... ek self gebruik 'tradisionele' partikels en boilies op die hoek omdat ek voer met dit en in waters hengel wat nie baie druk het nie.

So.... if one arrives at water under pressure and you haul out these "strange" hook baits you might just be "in the pound seats!"?

Sorry for the late reply, been swamped with work.

BT, the nuts are prepared as usual, soaking and then boiling... but some of those nuts have an airbubble inside, so they are actually critically balanced hookbaits...

Interestingly I was watching a program last night where 2 guys had a 2 night "weird baits" competition between them...the rule was they were only allowed to fish with whatever they could buy from the local supermarket, no boilies and usual carp baits allowed. The result, 1 Carp on a piece of pepperami, 2 Carp on roasted peanuts! One guy fed with barley soaked in dessicated coconut, mixed with some peanuts and dog pellets...the other guy fish small pva bags with mushed pepperami mixed with catfood and dog pellets.... I found it really interesting!

lol JF! Most interesting. Reckon I can feed one of my samies as well and be in for a good catch! hahahaha!

Very interresting indeed and food for thought. As I said earlier, the fish are used to the same old, same old. So if one should try one of these "weird" hook baits it might just give you the edge!

Admittedly I have always stuck to the regular hook baits, but will surely try out a different one with my next session. Just for the fun off it and just maybe I am in for a helluva surprise...

Very interesting indeed, I have caught carp on glazed cherries before but that was still using conventional tackle - how about Jelly tots there sweet and soft ?

Howdi
they worked for me at bloemhof Coyote.

When I started using the hair rig , I did not have any boilies etc. so I used sweets , nuts , fruit to give it a go and had mixed results.

Ek het ook al gesien hoe 'n persoon sommer 'n bessie tipe vrug langs die water van 'n boom af pluk aansit en 'n vis vang daarmee...weet nie wat dit was nie.

I have caught carp using 4 - 5 jellytots on a hair. I must be honest they were not big fish but I have caught a few. The other thing that has worked is green peas in a combination with maize.
