The old stuff, it is believed that they are known by heart, then come the questions! We forget too quickly that new fishermen appear each year. hemp oil is a base for almost all white fish fisheries, especially those of good size. Some people think it’s over, worn out, outdated, but you can always trust hemp oil fishing in its different forms.
The seeds should always be cooked to be easily digested by the fish and not be potentially harmful. Refer to my article on hemp cooking for more information.
Remember that the hemp seeds are a true magnet with large fish, especially in the river, both in the agrainage, incorporated in the primer or mixed with casters in a feeder or a bait dropper.
Hemp can also be used ground, as part of a primer or bait (boilies, pellets), … It replaces or supplements the seeds.
Grinding hemp is not an easy task: it is a greasy seed that tends to clog the mill. I advise you to grind in small quantities or mixed with baby corn or coarse breadcrumbs.
Raw ground hemp is fat and makes a primer work well. I advise you not to do it too thin, but to remove the large particles on a sieve of 3mm, particles that may float and take the fish too far, but are full of oil. Iron them for a few seconds and they will be perfect.

I advise you to grill your hemp seeds in a little hemp oil, toast them without burning them so that they turn brown (7 minutes in a hot frying pan (medium to high heat), then 3 minutes without the fire, with a lid on the pan, it pops almost like popcorn!), let them cool, then pass them to the oven. The quality will be top!

Hemp oil Fishing
use hemp oil to boost seed mixes containing hemp, pellets or primers. I think it’s a good thing to call the fish from a distance, without feeding it naturally. If you put it in a primer or moistened pellets, make sure to moderate the quantities, because it makes the mixture less sticky when you exaggerate!
I hope all this tips on hemp oil fishing will help you and always remember that hemp is fishermen’s old friend .
