Derick and Mark making boilies
As the carp season and the summer mounts are approaching fast I asked my dad could I and mark take over the boilies making and the bait sales for carp and coarse fishing. He went through the cost of buying in the base mix from the top carp base mix company’s the cost of eggs, gas and electric to run the compressor and bait gun. After looking at the figures there is not much of a profit when you take all the above out of the price of the bait. myself and mark had a good chat and we are deciding to give it a go as it better to make something than nothing.
We decided to make a batch of boilies just encase it would take longer than we taught. With €20 of eggs bought gas bottle full and machines powered up and my dad watching and advising us on how to tell when the base mix was right for the bait gun, to dry it will take forever to come out of the gun to wet it will stick to the rolling tables. He gave us the notes on how many eggs is needed on all the different base mix he made. With the eggs cracked and the base mix in you could see the texture of the mix starting to bind up. with the 7.5kg of base mix and in the gun it was now time to see was my dad’s notes right,
It was coming out of the gun spot on, it pays to take notes
With some of the sausage cut at the right size for the table it was time to see how they roll.
With the table working as fast as we could and the sausages coming out of the gun like a dream it was not long before we had the 7.5kg of mix rolled.
We hope to have a hundred kg of sticky bait made and ready for sale in the next week or so
