Niger seed (Guizotia abyssinica) is a tiny, oil-rich seed native to Ethiopia and commonly used as bird feed due to its high nutritional value. However, its potential as a carp bait ingredient has been gaining recognition among anglers looking to diversify their bait arsenal. What makes niger seed stand out is its unique texture and high oil content, which can create a cloud of attractive and enticing oils in the water. Carp are naturally attracted to the scent and taste of oils, making niger seed a powerful attractor for these finicky feeders. Its small size also means it can be easily dispersed throughout the water, making it an excellent option for both bottom and surface feeding carp. When used in carp bait mixes, niger seed adds a new dimension to the overall attractiveness of the bait. It can complement traditional ingredients like boilies, pellets, and corn, enhancing the bait's visual appeal and scent profile. The seeds' natural buoyancy can also be utilized to create buoyant hook baits that hover above the lakebed, mimicking a natural food source. As with any bait, proper preparation is crucial to maximize its effectiveness. Soaking niger seeds overnight can help soften them and release their oils, making them more attractive to carp. Additionally, adding complementary flavours and attractors can enhance the overall appeal of the bait.
