Many bait companies, such as Korda, offer various types of carp fishing glugs or goo.

These products are very effective, but can you make your own homemade version that will catch you carp?

Well, in this tutorial we are going to show you how to produce your own homemade pineapple flavour carp fishing goo glug. It is a simple process and one you must try out! You will get some serious satisfaction catching carp using a bait you produced at home. So let's get started!

What you will need

Step 1

Measure out the 400ml of water in the measuring jug

Step 2

Measure out 250g / 1 cup of sugar

Step 3

Drain the syrup from the pineapple tin and set to one side. Ideally, the more concentrated the syrup the better. This tinned stuff was easy to pick up in the supermarket but if I was to make this again, I would get a stronger, more concentrated flavour. 

 

 

 

Step 4

Add the water, sugar and pineapple syrup to the saucepan

Melt the sugar over medium heat until the liquid is clear

Step 6

In the measuring jug, mix the cornflour and a small amount of water. Do not add the cornflour directly to the hot liquid as it will cook and become stoggy

Step 7

Add a few drops of yellow food colouring along with the cornflour mix to the saucepan and simmer for 5 minutes

Step 8

Pour the mix into the measuring jug and allow to cool. When the liquid cools it will become thick and goo like

There you have it, a very cheap and simple homemade carp fishing goo glug. The concentrated pineapply syrup provides a lovely strong smell that the carp will love. As I mentioned, the more highly concentrated syrup, the better results.

Simply coat your rig in the glug goo before casting.

Note - if you plan to use PVA bags, add some salt when adding the sugar to the saucepan to ensure the PVA will not melt.

      Hi Andy, I would only use a tablespoon initially which should be enough to thicken the mixture. You can always add more if you want to thicken the mix further. Hope this helps?

      Hi Stacy, I would start with a teaspoon and then test this inside a PVA bag to see how long it takes to dissolve. Make small adjustments to get the PVA to dissolve in the time you desire. Hope that helps

      Hi Peter, adding more cornflour will thicken this up. It a bit of trial and error to get it right. Hope that helps
