Feed Boilies For Fisheries
We produce our feed boilies to allow fishery owners to feed their larger fish without wasting feed on the smaller nuisance fish, if your feeding pellets and have a good head of nuisance fish you could be loosing a large % if not all to of the feed to them, by feeding boilies you can be pretty sure most if not all the feed will be consumed by the larger carp. Although boilies are more expensive than pellets at least you know the carp have a good chance of getting the nutrition they need to thrive.
The machinery we have developed over the years is huge, this allows us to produce over 1000kg per day with ease, in fact if we ran our machinery flat out we could produce over 5000kg in just 8 hours, its not practical for us to run the machinery at this speed as it would be difficult to keep up with, but it shows how efficient our production process has become, the manufacturing process is almost fully automated this helps to minimise production costs keeping the overall cost of our feed boilies down, normally a large portion of the production cost of boiles is labour, by automating the entire process we’ve cut the labour cost dramatically. Our boilies have been formulated to be a complete balanced diet and have a balanced nutritional value containing a full vitamin and mineral supplement.
To produce our boilies we first mill Aqua Aller Classic or Classic Vitamax carp pellets to a fine powder, this is ideal as our main ingredient as its already a complete balanced diet with a proven track record and excellent feed to weight conversion rate, The Vitamax version contains formula proven to improve the carps immune response and help them fight of parasites, infections or to better handle stress, this does come at an extra cost but is well worth it to improve your stocks health. We don’t use any cheap bulking ingredients at all, its all pure goodness.
We steered away from using too much eggs in our boilies, this is because the lipid or fat content of eggs is way too high, instead of relying solely on eggs as the binding agent within our mixes we developed our own protein based binder or egg replacer, this has a lipid or fat content of just 0.5%, compared to over 40% in eggs, carp use the lipid or fat content as an energy source so it is essential but it must be at the correct level, during the colder months they require less as they are less active, as the water warms up they require more as their activity level increases, too much fat in their diet can have disastrous consequences on their internal organs, their liver becomes enlarged and generally leads to premature death, so its vitally important to be in the 8% to 10% range in winter and 12% to 14% range in summer.
The carps ability to utilise protein increases as the water warms up in summer, so we produce boilies with a increased protein and lipid content ideally suited for summer use and a lower protein and lipid content boilie for autumn, winter and spring use, its important that the feed is as digestible as possible, we also need to ensure the carps 10 essential amino acid requirements are met, this is vitally important as they will have difficulty digesting and extracting the nutrients from the feed if there’s an imbalance of the essential amino acids
Over 90% of the boilies we produce are fresh/frozen, we use no chemical preservatives in these at all, so customers require adequate freezer space to store them, to give you an idea of how much space is required a 6 foot chest freezer generally holds around 250kg of boilies.
We can and do produce a fish friendly extended shelf life version of our feed boiles for customers without adequate freezer space, achieving this without the use of nasty chemical preservatives isn’t easy and has taken many years of trials and testing to get just right, unfortunately this does increase the cost quite significantly, a 6 months shelf life costs an extra £1 per kg, the additional cost can be offset against the cost to run a freezer, these shelf life boilies need to be stored in a cool dark room away from high humidity or moisture. In my opinion fresh/frozen is the best and the most cost effective way of storing boilies, second hand freezers are cheap and easily obtained and some times given away for free on the likes of Facebook market place, Gumtree or eBay.

Boilies are available in various shapes and sizes, also various protein and fat contents, please see below. We can also include additives such as Super G, this is super strong garlic which can be fed to fish that are suffering with parasite problems, if fish are fed regularly with this herbal remedy it can seriously reduce and even eliminate in certain cases common parasites such as argulus, whitespot and flukes etc. Super G costs just 30p per kg extra, its also very attractive to carp and increases the uptake of feed.
As mentioned above we can produce the boilies from Classic Vitamax that includes powerful immune system stimulants, these help the carps immune system fight back and should be fed to fish that are suffering from stress, bacterial infections, parasite infestations etc, the extra cost is just 25p per kg and well worth the extra, for more details phone Chris on 07789304942.
