Simon has asked me to try out a new boilie that he has put together, this being based on the HG42 base mix. This new boilie has a savoury fragrance to it and is to be called HG47. The bait that I was trying was the shelf life version.
It is early days but the first signs look good. I have tried the HG47 on the carp in my garden pond and they have gauged themselves on it despite the cold weather. The HG47 boilie has a dark red colouring and is well textured giving the appearance of a frozen boilie rather than shelf life.
I went down to my local lake where the last fish caught was in late November last year. Despite a number of anglers trying their luck the carp remained inconspicuous with not a single fish caught.
With a slight rise in temperature I decided to try a 24 hour session fishing 2 rods on the new HG47 and one on the HG42.
It was not until 1.30am that I had a single bleep on my indicators then a screaming run eventually landing the first fish for the lake in 2012, a 23lb 12oz leather.
The fish was caught on a 16mil HG47 bottom bait on the blowback rig.
