Washing flavour back into your boilies can be a massive edge. If you’ve got a stack of old boilies you want to rejuvenate then here’s how to rehydrate them with hemp juice.
Got a load of boilies left over from last season. Wincing at the financial implications of throwing them away?
Worry no more, because it’s easy to make them even better than they were the day you bought them. The trick is to ‘wash in’ attraction.
If they are freezer baits, air dry them thoroughly for at least a week to ensure all the moisture has gone from the middle. If they are shelf-life, there’s no need to air dry them first.
Boil up a big pan of hemp, a brilliant attractor for carp in spring, but don’t throw the water away. Place your boilies in the pan of hemp juice, and leave them to become fully hydrated.
By filling the baits with liquid, it reduces the amount of silt smell they can take on.
If the baits are full and swollen before being used, then they will not only be heavier for easier catapulting but will also start pumping their attraction straightaway rather than taking on the surrounding smell and then eventually leaking out a subtle silty/bait signal.
