How many eggs are needed for 1kg of Carptrack Mix?
Normally you need 8 – 9 eggs per kg. But you should take care, that the Carptrack Mixes are seasoning pretty fast due to the high percentage of palatants (water soluble material) and should be treated as fast as possible.
Flavour, a MUSTHAVE for Carptrack Mixes?
Each Carptrack Mix can also be rolled without any flavour or additives. The effect of the different ingredients of high quality is enormous. Our flavours and additives cap it all of when they give more attraction, drawing power and recall value to the Boilie.
Which flavour for which Carptrack Mix?
In the combination of flavour and mix imagination knows no limits. Be creative and discover the different stimuli of a combination for example of Fishmix with Banana Flavour and Cream Aroma.
NHDC in addition to the Carptrack Mix?
In some of the Carptrack Mixes a very special sweet blend is contained in which NHDC in dry form is used. This is denoted on the package. This kind of NHDC is not water soluble and only serves to a sweet taste. That is why you always should add NHDC liquid! Through a special treatment we achieved to make a strongly stimulating carp magnet water soluble.
Advantages of BPS (Boilie Protector Spray)
To simplify the Boilie producing, I can recommend you the so-called BPS (Boilie Protector Spray). It has the advantage that after the rolling of the Boilies the used tools can be cleaned much easier. When you spray some on your Boilieroller, your Boilies are much easier to be produced and they do not stick together anymore. The Boilies are also protected while boiling, which means that important water soluble ingredients are barely washed out. If you boil Boilies without BPS, the cooking water is very turbid, which means that a part of the water soluble ingredients have been washed out and swim in the cooking water now. But if you use BPS while boiling your Boilies, you will observe, that the cooking water will not be murky at all. The Boilie does not absorb much water and due to this it is dry and hard pretty fast. That is why it will not get mouldy so fast.
Advantages of BPS also while steaming
We realized that without the use of BPS the cooking water was a bit murky. A direct comparison with a new portion sprayed with BPS. And lo and behold the water was as clear as it had been before. The BPS Spray always does a good job, no matter if you use it for cooking or steaming of the Boilies, and does not destroy so many ingredients.
STEAMING, how long with which Boilie size?
16mm Boilie: ca. 5min
20mm Boilie: ca. 9min
24mm Boilie: ca. 13min
30mm Boilie: ca. 18min
35mm Boilie: ca. 24min
How do I catch the best grass carp (Amur)?
A very successful variation is cooked tiger nuts pickled in Carptrack NHDC or in the Amino Dip Osmotic Spice. To pre-feed the best are wheat, hemp and 30% of tiger nuts. Well mixed and qualified with NHDC it is a grass carp magnet.
You have to take care to use a very sharp hook for fishing, as grass carp have a very firm lip. 2-3 tiger nuts as bait, 2-5cm above the soil and pimped are a perfect trap.
Grass carp do not always eat where they spring and the very big ones are often on the move on their own or with two others from the same size. Good chance!
Advantages of Carptrack Amino Gels
At the one hand they procure an optical stimulation (for example Explosive Stickmix Gel= bright yellow, Fish Gel= red or Monster´s Paradise= green). On the other hand Amino Gels pulse continuously a very strong attractant. Does a carp nudge the gelled hook bait, it literally explodes under water and the different aromas fly apart.
Advantages of Carptrack Additives Powder/Liquid and inP/inL
These Carptrack Additives are used by all Imperial Fishing team fisher in whole Europe to moisture Boilies, pellets or particles. Liquid as well as Powder provide a long lasting stimulation and inP and inL are responsible for a fast instant impact, as both components are very water soluble. Already during the sinking on the soil inP and inL leave a trace of attractants through the different water strata.
The 4 additives are absolute binge-eating trigger and can not be thought away at the fishing!!!!
Boilies wrecking – how does it work?
1.) You tell us how many kg old Boilies (quality and condition are not important as they are disposed of) you have and what kind of new Carptrack Boilies you want to order (at least the same amount).
2.) We subtract 3, 50 € per KG old Boilies and inform you about the new full amount.
3.) Then you transfer the full amount and we send you the new Boilies and GLS picks up the old ones at your home. They should be packed in a solid carton.
No suitable carton at home?
Delivery and collection can not be connected by GLS. But if it helps you we can pick up the wrecked Boilies later, so you can use the carton from our delivery.
How do I stock my Carptrack Boilies and how does the stabilisation find place?
Imperial Baits Products are always freshly produced. To guarantee the quality until the fishing trip the following points have to be considered:
· Do not expose the products to direct sunlight.
· Stock the products cool and dry.
· Do not expose the vehicle in which you transport the products needlessly to direct sunlight, as the interior of the vehicle can become very hot.
· Take care that the welded bags are closed again by wrapping down after the first opening.
· The products are loved by gnawers too! Ensure that the products are secured of them.
The question about durability and the kind of stabilisation is very common.
The durability of the Carptrack Boilies turns around one year. Our elaborated, very gentle stabilisation, that is underlying a moisture-keeping principle, so the Boilies always stay juicy, makes this possible. The taste is not restricted. But, the less air or temperature fluctuation affects the Boilies the best it is for the stabilisation of the freshness.
Our bags are ideal for this, as you can mostly exclude the air by “wrapping it down”. A bucket offers much more air space (especially when it is mostly empty), that „attacks“the Boilies and makes them oxidize.
Why Carptrack Flying Hookbaits?
Imperial Baits Carptrack Flying Hookbaits contain up to 65% exactly the respective Carptrack Boiliemix of which the soil baits are produced. Also the appropriate flavours as well as other highly attractive additives, like Liquid, Liquid Amino etc are contained.
Here is the greatest advantage in comparison to the conventional Fluo Pop Ups on the market. The hook bait is floating or is balanced and does taste the same as the surrounding feeding Boilies.
At water bodies where it is extremely often fished with Pop Ups in bright and striking colours, some fishes develop a fright of this hook baits. In this case Carptrack Flying Hookbaits are the right decision!
Also fish with Flying Hookbaits in difficult situations, for example above the cabbage or in very muddy water bodies!
Visible Touch colour yellow – shoo effect?
“Could be, should be, does not have to be….” In case of doubt use the grey Invisible Touch.
On the other hand: The yellow one can be seen by the carp and it can pass it by consciously, but with an “invisible” one it possibly would be frightened.
In the most times we suggest 10-30m, just as needed, of the brown monofile SHOCK IT Shock leader. This one has the quality to lay down on the soil and is nearly invisible due to its special colour.
Eggshell in the Boiliemix?
This is a question of taste and of confidence! A theory says: Broken eggshells handled in a Boilie, will while the Boilie is squashed by the carp with its gorge-teeth, provoke a certain „crunch effect“and entice other fishes. During the producing just crunch the eggshells with your hand and use it in the mix.
How long can I stock the Carptrack Paste?
Forever! After some time it becomes harder and harder and you can not form it anymore. But it smells for ever and a day and is activated as soon as it is brought into contact with water. TIP: Finish you baits at home and let the, with Carptrack paste coated, Boilies dry in a net. So you can use them anytime, even months later…!
Do Half’n Half Baits have to float, to be balanced or even to sink?
Also if we would like to imagine a well-balanced bait due to the term “Half’n Half”, it is technically (and physically!) not possible to produce a hook bait that is floating weightlessly on the water!
Depending on Water temperature and especially water deepness the influence on the Boilie varies so much, that the balance changes a lot. You eventually know that highly floating Pop Ups do not float very much when they are 10m under water, due to the influence of the water pressure.
A product that is dry due to the stocking is another cause for less floating. Moisture also has an impact on the balance etc.
If it does not float at all or if it floats way to much, help yourself with a lead shot.
In each case the advantages of a visual stimulation of a V-Pop white such as the taste attractant of the luring original Carptrack Sinker Mix united in this one hook bait will assist you to great successes.
In 2007 our team member Andreas Scherf developed it.
Half`n Half, The original in ten different sorts- only at Imperial Baits!
Do you always have to freeze Boilies?
Provided that you bought finished Carptrack Boilies, you do not need to. But it does not cause any damage and it gives a little supplementary effect, if you freeze Boilies- no matter where they come from!
After being frozen, they smell a bit more intensive, as the flavour in the centre of the Boilie is shifted to the external deposit due to the crystallizing of the water. The more often you freeze and thaw Boilies, the more intensive they smell on the outside. So the impact in the water is more intensive but at the same time also shorter! It depends on what you want to achieve.
PS: Good bags secure of freezer burn.
Simple and fast– produce Boilies in pillow form?
Boilies do not necessarily have to be round! You can produce squarish Boilie boards fast and easily. At the water they are broken and especially at these breakages the aroma and the attractant emission are the strongest! Look at the pictures in the following update:
Thorsten Feil – pillow production
Does the iBoat 160 also fit in the car trunk when it is inflated?
A customer asked the following question:
Hello, I am interested in the iBoat 160, but on no website I can find the width of the iBoat in its inflated condition. This is very important for me, as I want to know if it would fit in my car trunk when it is inflated. Many thanks for the information!
Answer by Max Nollert:
Exactly here is the difference between us and other small boats on the market. Most time they are much to wide- off target!
OK, in a car trunk there are mostly just 95cm available and that is the size that we gave the boat in its inflated condition!
Perfect, the boat fits in my car trunk in contrast to other boats from other providers.
Thanks a lot for the fast information!
Liver and Monster Boilies are not available anymore?
Liver and Monster Boilies yielded Monster’s Paradise, Explosiv Stickmix, Worm Up such as Uncle Bait. Liver such as Monster Boilies are sold much less than for example Monster-Liver Boilies, that are a blend of 50% of the two sorts.
Therefore now it exists a Cold Water version of the much more requested Monster-Liver Boilie, as many customers asked for this.
Good news for all Liver and Monster Boilies fans. We still have a good portion of these two sorts on stock that we propose to a special sell-out price.
How can I imagine the production at Imperial Baits?
The most important about the production of a high-class and successful Boilie are attractive and fresh INGREDIENTS and their formula based composition!
Max Nollert and his creative team around Imperial Baits choose and furnish right from the beginning each component of the recipe, which means every pulverized flour, each liquid flavour of which the Carptrack Boilies are produced. Some of the liquid ingredients as for example NHDC or liquid Amino are even manufactured from our own production. An appropriate blender of a certain size provides the optimal mixture of the ingredients for our fine Carptrack Mixes. The permanent stocking of several dozen tons of different flours, Carptrack Mixes and Carptrack Boilies is a logistic strenuous effort that we master thanks to our building extension of a new hall. With the final shaping we do not encumber ourselves anymore since 2004 for placement, time and economic aspects.
What does this mean and what advantages does it have?
IB mixes from plenty of flours in an own baiching plant the wonderful Carptrack Mixes and uses an existing very efficient Boilie rolling complex and a friendly team to unroll the dry and liquid ingredients to Boilies in different diameters.
Distribution and delivery in 19 European countries, such as plenty of trade shows, a customer driven marketing and not to forget the lots of intensive iBlog updates and diverse other online activities, such as the creative and scientific work on the Boilies, constitute the main part of the company Imperial Baits.
And IB is reaping fruits of this. The award “best manufacturer” has now been awarded two times, in 2007/2008 and also in 2011/2012, by the readers of CM to Imperial Baits. Carptrack Boilies are fished with great success by thousands of carp anglers in Europe.
We are very pleased about the wonderful feedback of our work and are always motivated to carry on exactly the same way.

Which Half’n Half sort should I use from March till September and which colours do they have then?
By and large we can say that each Half´n Half Hookbait is a whole year bait. Because of the visual stimulation of the white or pink Pop Up Half, it always is an attractive bite in every season. The pink Pop Up half exists just for the new Worm Up Half´n Half, in the other way it is always white for all other sorts!
Through the combination of 50% Sinker (from the original Carptrack Sinker Mix/Boilie) and 50% V-Pop Up (Fluo colours) it is a nearly balanced bait that disappears immediately in the carp mouth as soon as it sucks softly. Lazy carp, especially in winter time, move and eat very slowly. Of course, when the light bait lands in their mouth also the eating behaviour is much slower.
Depending on the hook size or rather the hook weight, we use additionally to balance the bait a little lead shot on the hair, directly underneath the Half’n Half bait.
So it is possible to fish with absolutely weightless bait that is always an advantage to the heavier Boilies on the hair!
The little Federmann GEL-TIP
1. Wet the hook bait
2. Put the hook bait into the Carptrack GEL-tin and shake it lightly
3. Wet the hook bait again
4. Put the hook bait a second time into the GEL-tin
5. Wet the hook bait to fix the gel- THROWING-PROOF!
Extra Tip: Instead of wet the hook bait with water, I like to use the Carptrack Liquid Amino.
This gives a strong taste BOOST to my hook bait and the contained amino acid profile makes the hook bait even more attractive!
