Alternative bait for carp fishing

Have you ever heard that raisins can be used for fishing? If not, I tell you that I did not even know about it myself, too. But years ago, during one of my many fishing days, I encountered an older fisherman who used it in his feed for feeding.

Because I was interested, I got involved in a conversation, in which I was trusted that he often fishes with raisins since the pond is full of boilies, corn and fish do not like this boring stuff any longer. He also told me that the night before fishing, raisins are soaked in warm water and left there until morning, then they are mixed in the feeding food with the water from the pond.

Raisins and the feed

The food for feeding that he used was simple. It consisted of a mixture of crushed dry bread, cooked ground wheat, homemade milk corn and little-boiled potatoes. He also added a handful of soaked raisins, which he had already halved before to spread the aroma better. From this, he designed larger balls, which in small quantities were thrown to the fishing area.

And what is your experience with an alternative bait for carp?
