Illner tempts giant common carp in testing with Rastafari Boilies

Illner devised the boilie with us back in 2016, with a mix including real hemp and Scopex aroma in the form of butyric acid. Other ingredients include high-quality proteins in the form of egg albumen, which is easily digested by fish. Illner has had the opportunity to test and improve the bait on many waters in Germany as well as in Austria, Slovenia and...

Monster catfish defeated at a water temperature of 8 degrees

Tostedt. At the beginning of March, angling guide and Black Cat brand manager Stefan Seuß headed to the Po along with tour guests Ludwig and Max Heller.

At this time, Stefan Seuß likes to use small sub floats (10-gram Black Cat underwater float), which he mounts directly behind the baitfish on the leader. This causes the bait to hover just off the bottom, precisely where most of the prey of catfish...

With the Rhine at high tide, the pair sought out a tributary with a steady current. The objective was to target the catfish in open water. This means impatiently watching the...
