Boilies are the most commonly used carp bait around the world, these small, round boilies are specific developed with nutrients and flavours to attract carp. Freezer boilies are the most commonly used type of boilies amongst carp fisherman - this is due to the ingredients that are used in the making of the boilie. These ingredients are extremely attractive in water and this is the reason why freezer boilies are one of the most popular baits for carp. Shelf-life boilies have been becoming a more popular choice of fishing bait in more recent years; this is because they have similar properties to freeze boilies with the benefit that they do not require to be refrigerated.

Groundbait and Particles
Groundbait is extremely versatile fishing bait that is used across different disciplines of fishing. It is a finely milled substance which can contain a variety of mixture of ingredients and can also differ between brands in terms of consistency. Groundbait is also available in a variety of colours, both natural and pre-dyed bait. Generally the darker coloured groundbaits work better in water and in cloudy water the more natural colours of groundbait are more commonly effective. Particles are extremely important whilst using groundbait to fish, particle bait is mixed with the groundbait to extend the breakdown time of the groundbait and also to add cloudiness or fizz actions.
Pellet bait is also very popular for both carp and coarse fishermen as an alternative to boilies. Pellets are regularly available in a variety of sizes from 3mm to 21mm with an extensive range of flavours. The main difference between pellets and boilies is the rate at which they breakdown, when pellets are saturated they loose their consistency much quicker than boilies. This makes them ideal for use whilst feeder fishing. Fishing Republic: Local Knowledge Nationwide for all fishing tackle and fishing baits
