I know when i fish for wild carp baiting is the key. I use to bait heavy with canned sweet corn but the cost of a 6 to 8 hour trip of baiting sweet corn was to high. So i tried the "Euro" method with baiting heavy with boilies and that was even more costly.
Even though I have used Field Corn ( as i will never call it maize ) before i got away from it due to the fact of the semi long walks to the places i fish and the fact you have to tote in everything you need. yeah i thoguht about the wheel barrows or some sort of wheeled caring device but the sheer fact it would just take away from the enjoyment of Just Goin Fishin'
. so this year ( back in November and december i started soaking field corn in 5 gallon buckets.
I searched the net and used my noodle trying to find the best way to infuse the corn with flavoring and to make the corn more soft for hook bait as well as easier for the carp and other fish to digest once they feed. Well so far i found that some good ole fashion booze was the ticket to help in my quest.
I have added to one bucket ( 5 gallon sized ) about a fifth of Good Ole jack Daniels , about two cups of Sugar , a cup of plain ole sea salt. So far they are fermenting well and are soft enough to use on the hook. I even tried my cryovac machine to Quickly do this method and it worked but not as well as just Soaking and waiting.
So i ask , any of yall ever try soaking Field corn and if so whats your method?
