    I tried to make some for catfish, a few times. Mine turned out too hard, couldn't get a needle through them without them breaking apart.

    A boilie is basicly a dumpling.
    They are popular in Europe.

    Boil them for about 1-2 minutes.
    Then air dry for 30 minutes. Package and refrigerate.
    If you want the boilies to be harder, let them air dry longer.

    One of my best cat trips came on fruit flavor boilies.
    I'm going to be making some pop ups this year with fish meal.

    Kutter, when they're hard it helps to use a drill on them.

    I've heard a lot of folks having good luck with tuti-fruiti and pineapple. Not sure why???? I've never seen a pineapple growing here in Oklahoma, much less hanging over the water. But who am I to argue with what works? :big_smile:

    There are no Pineapples in TN either but some of my better carp come on Pineapple Ice Cream boilies. I also purchased a bag of crayfish boilies and they caught a few decent channels and accounted for a friend of mines large carp. His first 5 carp on the crayfish boilie weighed over 20lbs each.

    Seems like you guys that have/do use them are from southern states.
    I've never seen them for sale up here in Iowa.
    I'm wanting to cheese flavor the dough and insert a pellet of catfish bait in the center of the boilie.
    Sound possible?

    They aren't found in just any store. Only carp specialty stores or online. There are a few carp shops near Indy and one out in Oklahoma I think. I order mine from a NC based company nearme made by a guy not far from where I am. They work well both north and south. I have attempted to make my own boilies but have not done to well (or tried real hard) so I cannot give advice on how to make them.
