Boilies & Pop Ups
You will discover a fabulous range of boilies from the excellent Kai X Baits range here at Fishing Boat World. If you are new to angling then you may be wondering exactly what boilies are?
Boilies were invented by Fred Wilton in the 1970s in order to create a bait with a hard skin that would appeal to carp but which other species were less able to tackle. They were also formulated so as not to break down quickly in the water.
Named for the process with which they are made, boilies are a hard fishing bait made from a boiled paste. They combine flavoursome ingredients including fish meal, milk proteins and grains which are mixed with binding agents. Boilies can be in the water a considerable time before they start to break down and their shape means that they can be cast with accuracy when required. Boilies are available in a variety of sizes, colours and flavours to suit your needs. They are most often used on the hair rather than as hook baits and will quickly attract fish to your swim and keep them there.
The Kai X Baits range features highly effective boilies enhanced with coconut, pineapple or strawberry flavourings to provide an irresistible proposition for your target catch. If you are looking to land a record breaking carp then you need the best boilies to help you and that is exactly what you will find here at Fishing Bait World.
Boilies are hard fishing baits which are made using a combination of flavoursome ingredients mixed with binding agents. This bait is highly effective when carp fishing and is available in a wide variety of sizes, colours and flavours. Boilies which float and so do not rest on the bottom are called pop-ups and we have excellent choices from Kai X Baits here at Fishing Bait World.
Why Use Pop-Ups?
Pop-ups are generally brightly coloured and should be used when you require bait which stands out from bait on the bottom. You might think that fish would be wary of baits which stand out from other bait but they will actually take pop-ups readily. Pop-ups are also a wise choice when fishing lakes with weedy bottoms as the weeds can obscure other baits from the fish’s view. Pup-ups should also be used when you are fishing where there are a lot of fish close to the edge of the water. You are less likely to suffer a foul hook and the movement of the floating bait will attract fish’s attention, especially when the water has a strong colour.
Pop Ups are useful when your rig could be likely to get caught up as the buoyancy of the pop up should ensure that your hook stays clear of trouble.
Of course every carp is different and whilst some will shy away from brightly coloured baits, others will be drawn to baits that stand out. Through experimenting with different boilies and pop-ups and perfecting your rigs you will find the set-up that yields the best results for you.
