If you follow Carp Marathon on social media be it on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram? you will know doubt of seen various posts regards the stodged boilie approach
after a host of various comments and messages below is the full lowdown on how to prepare your own stodged boilies from which ever bait manufacturers products you decide to use?
get yourself a round bucket square buckets are not good for this approach when it comes to mixing all of the ingredients together
the size of the bucket is up to you depending on how much bait you wish to prepare?
choose the boilie of your choice, just to make things clear we are preparing shelf life bottom baits here and not pop ups
depending on the amount of bottom baits you wish to prepare? fill your bucket up with the amount required
all good bait manufacturers these days do a complementary range of products to complement the boilie of your choice
in this example I'm using Scopex Squid from Nashbait, for the stodging process I also use their bait soak and matching stick mix
the final stage and this bit does get a bit messy is to glaze the bottom baits using the bait soak and then coat with the stick mix
get your hands right in their making sure all of your baits get a generous coating of both the bait soak and stick mix
and their you have it the finished result, it's by no means a cheap way of preparing bottom baits
but is without a doubt a very effective method, very high attract which keeps the carp in your swim for longer and if your a short session angler this method is a big edge!
