Keep freezing it in plastic bags or bait boxes. And don't discard it even when it starts to smell a bit (but not too much). Fish, especially barbel, like it even better when it's begun to go off a little.
Seed baits that have fermented a bit are extremely attratcive to fish. In fact fish love alcohol. We used to get a sack of dryed maize and throw it into a large plastic container. Fill up with water, add some sugar and brewers yeast and away you go. In about 10 days you will a magnificent smelling bubbling gunge that really attracts carp. Try it and see.
He wouldn't know!!!......the only reason he knows he has had a barbie is cos he comes round three days later.....still in the Garden!!!
David......sorry your serious question got steamrollered by a bunch of maniacs!!!!! LOL
Yes, sorry David. You keep the hempseed mate, and as others have said - it is a good idea to freeze them in small or rather usuable amounts after you have prepared it.
The idea of soaking it and boiling is to start a kind of fermentation process off anyway, so even if you have taken a load fishing and it has been very hot, it will more than likely have simply fermented a bit more.
Crushed hemp really creates activity and movement in the swim, you can see the swim working, it does just lay inert on the bottom like some groundbaits.
It's best used as a percentage of your total mix (about 30%)
Fred, I find if you try to cook crushed hemp, you end up with a sloppy mess. It's also much easier to crush after the cooking has softened it. Never tried grilling it so can't comment - I'm lazy and buy it ready grilled.
