  • what use could bi carbonate of soda be to make fishing bait

    my mate died last year and before he passed away he gave me a lot of his tackle a few days ago his widow called round and left a carrier bag full of bait she had found in her garage amongst other things were 4 tubs of bi carbonate of soda i am not as clued up as he was when it comes to mixing bait but i just wondered if any forum members knew anything about using bi carb for g/bait or anything else fishing related thank you for any replies john

    Used to put bi-carb in with hemp when cooking it, supposed to help the seeds go black. Sugar supposed to do the same thing

        If you're not bothered about putting it in with your hemp you can use it to whiten your teeth, that's my dental hygiene tip of the day.

            Added to a dryish mix it would make it more active and would presume the salty taste would be liked by Roach especially!
            I will give it a go and report back!

                As a few have said using for hemp, it also helps soaking other pulses over night and makes them quicker to cook.
