For more information on making beginner homemade carp baits and more advanced far more potent baits of the kind that excel very many commercial baits in design and function, read on now and take advantage of this free information. Semolina is used in winter and summer baits and is possibly the most used carp bait ingredient world wide; so find out finer details of its benefits and drawbacks too and improve your bait performance and your catches now!
White soft wheat flour differs from durum wheat semolina in that semolina is low in gluten which gives white wheat flour its stickiness and gluey binding abilities. Semolina is a hard grade and form of wheat which is coarser ground in general compared to fine white flour. It is very commonly used to bind and firm and harden boilie and paste recipes cheaply. Semolina is around 84 to 86 percent carbohydrate, 1 to 2 percent fat, and about 12 percent protein.
Durum in Latin means hard and durum wheat is the hardest of wheat species so is useful for this functional property alongside its binding properties. In mixing durum wheat and soft wheats higher in gluten, with yeast, water, sugar, salt, and oil, breads are made which in many ways (and in paste and ground bait forms) have proven to be effective stimulants and attractors of carp through the centuries.
Many more serious carp bait enthusiasts want to know what nutritional value semolina has too, but over all semolina is a functional element far more than a nutritionally helpful one in terms of delivering those all important vital feeding triggers etc! Many beginners in homemade bait making come across the carbohydrate-rich 50:50 semolina and soya flour recipe and start with that.
But actually looking back knowing what I know today I would not use this at all as it is a massive waste of time compared to far more bioactively potent approaches that even beginner can start out with! I particularly aim this statement at intensely pressured carp waters. Few big carp fisheries are not under continuously intensive angling pressure these days!
Carp are extremely selective, not just from nutritional needs and supplies within baits, but in terms of actual bait taste specifities and many other factors including being very vary when confronted with too familiar sensations. This is one reason that on many wary carp waters fish will actively avoid feeding on newly-introduced readymade boilies! I avoid heated conventional readymade boilies; having to wait for baits to wash out before getting bites is a sure sign these baits are very seriously flawed! Why start out with a seriously under-optimised bait when you can start out with very alternative Rolls Royce homemade baits immediately?
If economy is your goal consider this point; sure carp can be seen as requiring carbohydrates, for one thing to prevent expensive proteins in baits from being catabolised from body tissues for instance. There is great evidence to show that humans are designed to feed, and then self-catabolise. All the evidence shows that this is just the same as with carp and that this is normal, and not simply a matter of breaking down body tissues for basic vital cellular, metabolism etc energy in times of food scarcity as seasonal and environmental conditions change.
Far from making the cheapest baits possible for instance using semolina and soya flour truly massively under-optimised bait I’d far rather make homemade baits as optimised as possible for triggering actual feeding response. I totally recommend totally avoiding bulking out bait recipes with carbohydrates which will drastically reduce bait potency and intensity of impacts upon fish receptors vital to triggering maximised feeding responses on multiple levels!
Heat-coagulated egg albumins drastically minimize water entry inside boilies. Yet optimised water ingress and potent solution flow outwards into the water column is the vital process which turns bait substances to solution so they can be carried outside of baits in a concentration gradient that carp home in on in a maximum pre-stimulated bio-physical state! Having created ways to make resilient baits without eggs I can truly state they are redundant to me!
There are lakes where the majority of anglers are still using semolina-based very carbohydrate-rich baits where fish are dependant on these as their main food source. But carbohydrates will predominantly be turned to sugars within the body. Just question how healthy this; carp are evolved to best utilise protein-rich diets for balanced health and not high carbohydrate diets!
It will do you and in fact literally anyone lots of great benefits in terms of ongoing personal health to do some research. Look into glutens, lectins, triploid modern wheat, artificial selection of Emmer wheat, wheat nutritional deficiency increases, and agglutination of blood etc on the negative health impacts of high wheat carbohydrate diets!
Semolina is best fresh as possible as the bioactive potency of its nutritional components will be of optimum value to fish and will ensure bait palatability is not reduced. Semolina in baits designed for different fishing conditions and temperatures during the changing seasons is significant.
For instance you might suggest that full fat more yellow semolina is best for periods such as the autumn when fish have a high demand for carbohydrates and highly energy-efficient lipids etc. Also fish will have more carbohydrate and lipid demands in the periods before, during and post-spawning. When designing a recipe whether simple or complex, semolina has very useful features, characteristic properties and features that make it hard to ignore!
For colder water baits particularly very low temperatures anything which reduces energy demand during digestion is essential to keeping fish feeding so you get more bites so lower protein baits are fine! Semolina is useful in winter baits in terms of being a carrier for substances delivering stimulants (in baits preferably optimised for digestion.) Semolina is useful for giving carp less protein in baits to digest so they actually feed more before possibly being satiated!
There is so much more to this however, especially when designing your own homemade baits purposely designed to be maximised in nutritional stimulation and truly optimised for practical function to out fish even the most popular readymade boilies. In fact out fishing popular readymade boilies with such bait is very easy indeed and an aspect of bait making I really want to help people to be confident in. Hundreds and hundreds of my ebooks series readers are beating the dominant readymade baits on their lakes and I know their recipes are not necessarily complex, but are truly maximised and optimised using my information giving them characteristics and features, modes of action and other vital aspects that make them outstanding!
I much prefer using soft whole meal wheat flour which is very water soluble compared to semolina, and superior in my experience for cold water bait recipes particularly. Protein digestion takes a heavy toll on energy in cold weather especially. This can seriously reduce feeding repetitiveness, duration and frequency so consider this, after all the primary purpose of your baits is to maximise numbers of opportunities for bites to occur!
Just like eggs, semolina is one of the most commonly used bait ingredients that can act as a danger reference point, which is why personally I avoid both these in making my homemade baits! Other options work far better especially for big old very wary rarely caught carp of the kind most anglers dream of catching!
