Buy Fishing Hemp in Bulk

If you haven’t tested your local waters with hempseed then you really should. Hemp is a fabulous particle bait which is appealing to most species of fish. This inexpensive bait can be utilised as groundbait and also as hookbait to catch smaller fish. Carp, in particular, find it hard to resist hemp. This could be because the seeds are reminiscent of water snails which feature in the carp’s natural diet. Alternatively it could be because this rich and oily particle bait has such an irresistible flavour.

Hempseed Particle Fishing Bait

Hempseed is a highly effective particle fishing bait that is a powerful attractant to most species of fish. It’s rich and oily, inexpensive and versatile meaning that it should shoot straight to the top of your shopping list if you’re yet to try it.

A Little History

Hempseed is the seed of the hemp plant. This is an environmentally friendly crop as it requires no chemical pesticides or fertilisers to grow and it is good for the soil too. Hemp fibres were originally used to make rope and paper but are now also utilised in fashion fabrics. It is a versatile crop but is prohibited in some countries because it is a close relative of cannabis.

Hemp was introduced to the UK as fishing bait by European refugees in World War I. First used for catching roach, this enticing seed is now favoured by anglers to use in their groundbait when fishing for any species. It can also be used as hookbait for catching smaller fish. Hempseed was only available uncooked until the 1990s but then many bait suppliers began to sell pre-prepared hempseed. These ready to use tins are always useful to have on hand but it is far cheaper to prepare your own seed. Batches can be frozen for future use if you wish to minimise the amount of time you spend prepping your fishing bait.

Preparing Hempseed

It is best to soak your hempseed overnight before cooking it. Once soaked it should be simmered for around 15 minutes. The seeds will start to split to reveal the white hearts. Take care not to overcook the bait, especially if you wish to use it as hookbait. You need to keep an eye on your pan and stop cooking when the seeds are just beginning to split. When the hempseed is cooked, strain off your seeds but retain the oily water as this is excellent for mixing with groundbait. Rinse the seeds in cold water and pack in a sealed container.

Hookbait Tricks

Hempseed is rarely used as hookbait for larger fish as the seeds are so small. However there is a method for fishing with these tiny seeds on a big enough hook. You can use a sticky substance, which is amusingly called ‘bogey’, tied to a hair rig with hempseed pushed into it. This creates a grainy ball which will enable you to land some impressive specimens.

Ramping up the Flavour

This particle fishing bait is naturally oily and flavoursome but you can pimp your bait with a variety of attractants if you wish. Add your chosen flavours to the cooking water to create your unique take on hemp.

Top Hempseed Tips

Hempseed floats if it dries out so keep it moist whilst you are fishing. Don’t use too much at once when you are fishing because you’ll find that little and often is the way forward when it comes to hemp. If you arrange a fishing trip at short notice and haven’t prepared any hempseed then you can do a little impromptu prep-work using a vacuum flask. Put some seeds in the flask and cover them with boiling water, allowing room for the seeds to swell. Seal the flask and leave overnight. The next morning you will have usable hemp.

How to prepare hemp seed for fishing?

Take care to properly prepare your hempseed otherwise it can prove harmful to fish. Tip the hempseed into a container. Cover with cold water and seal the container. Make sure that there is plenty of room in your container as the hempseed will swell. Once it has been soaked you can then place the seed and the water into a saucepan. Bring the water to the boil and simmer for 15 minutes. The bait will soften but should not break up unless you simmer it for too long.

If you don’t have the time to prepare your bait then you can also invest in Dynamite Frenzied Cooked Hempseed which is prepared using Dynamite’s unique process to lock in all of the flavour.

Hemp Seed is the number one best selling seed bait in our catalogue, and with good reason: there’s simply not a freshwater fish that swims that can resist it! However, believe it or not it is possible to boost the immense attraction given off by hemp seed still further… During the preparation stage, add dried crushed chillies (flakes) to the hempseed prior to adding the water. Add a heaped teaspoonful for every kilo – dry weight – of seed. Cover with water and soak for 12-24 hours, then bring the seed to the boil in the water in which it has been soaking. Simmer until the seed starts to split then drain off the water and use straight away. Smelly Hemp: Prepare the hempseed as normal by simmering until the husks split open showing their white insides (this takes between 40-45 minutes). Once it is ready drain off all the water and turn the still-hot seed into a large bucket. Quickly add 24 drops of Black Pepper Essential Oil and 12 drops of N-Butyric acid. Immediately seal the bucket and shake it well so that each seed receives a coating of the two attractors. NB. Hold the lid on tight while you do this! When the hemp has cooled it is ready to be used or stored. Easy Hemp: ¾ fill a good quality freezer box with hempseed. Add boiling water so that the seeds are just covered and replace the lid, ensuring that it is a good seal. Leave the hempseed to steep in the boiled water for 24 hours and it will be ready to use. Just prior to use, add two tablespoons of salt. . Blended Hemp: Mix together equal amounts of Red Band, Hemp seed and Mini-Maize. Add boiling water and soak the blend for 24 hours. Then place in a suitable saucepan or boiler and bring to the boil. Simmer until the hempseed is ready, by which time the Red Band and mini-maize will have become very soft as they will absorb much of the boiling water. The blend is now ready to use.
