Bait for bream do it yourself hands
Cooking bait for bream is not particularly complex. It can be used in summer on open water and in winter under ice. The effectiveness of self-made bait is quite difficult to confirm, as it is difficult to confirm the effectiveness of bait mixes that are offered to us by companies producing expensive bait like Sensas. This is a purely subjective factor. And to check whether bait works or not, you will only have to go fishing. Worse self-made, hand-made or not, than the store mix, but at least it is much cheaper, which is important if you regularly stay on the pond, for example, on vacation. Constantly acquire ready bait expensive. Yes, and it is not known, more practical value in store bait or more advertising moves of famous experts, which we see in the videos? Hard to say. It is likely that the demand for branded bait is simply artificially maintained by manufacturers of fishing products with the help of experts working for these companies. But everyone, probably, the fisherman felt quite familiar smells in the most super-duper bait from well-known companies. This is usually sweet biscuit smells with the feeling that there is also anise, vanilla, dill, oilcake, and sometimes chocolate in the bait. Yes, it just often smells like ground cookies or gingerbread. Confectionery factory, in a word. Therefore, there is room for creativity and ordinary fisherman. Why not make a bait with your own hands, and then again and again to check its effectiveness in fishing, adding something new and determining the effectiveness of self-made bait? Suddenly get what you want?
But at the same time, seasonality is important for your bait. This must be taken into account. In winter, in cold water, fish, including bream, feed much less and less. This means that the bait should be small fractional and more crumbly than in the summer. In addition, large particles of the bait, floating downstream, can simply scare the inactive and cautious fish. Therefore, the same bait need to do different grinding. In addition, in the winter, it does not hurt to add various syrups like “Cancer”, “Fish in cannabis” and others in homemade bait.
Now let’s get down to making our homemade, in fact, budgetary bait
Ground baits will serve as the basis of bait. Bread loves every “white” fish. You can use crackers from wheat and rye bread. But it is better if the wheat crackers will be more. Grind crackers in that quantity, so that they are enough and in reserve. What is it for? To fine-tune your bait already in place fishing. Suddenly bait get too liquid? When adding crackers, it will become more dense and at the same time more crumbly. In this case, it will be possible to sculpt from it balls. In addition, it does not hurt to have in stock and dry cereals, for example, barley, corn, semolina. Dried grains are well “dusty” on the current, creating a food cloud, especially semolina.
Another important ingredient of the bait will be pea porridge
If for the summer it can be made in the form of well-cooked peas, in the winter it is better to turn the peas into a real pea puree. Peas are also a favorite delicacy for “white” fish, including for bream. A pea puree will create a strong smell, while not saturating the fish. But it is important to boil the peas in an aluminum pan and over a low fire, stirring and making sure that the pea porridge does not burn, otherwise, instead of attracting fish, your homemade bait will scare it away with a burning smell. Pea porridge is better to take with you separately from the total mass of bait and mix the bait already in place, adding water.
Another important ingredient is ground sunflower seeds, lightly roasted, only slightly, otherwise the effect will also be the opposite, as with burnt peas. Instead of seeds, you can use the cake in bulk. The main thing is that it is not old and not rancid.
In the summer, in the homemade bait, you can add those same biscuit smells that are felt in the branded bait. For this you need to grind inexpensive cookies and gingerbread.
