How to Make Korda Goo (Updated)
Many bait companies, such as Korda, offer various types of carp fishing glugs or goo.
These products are very effective, but can you make your own homemade version that will catch you carp?
Well, in this tutorial we are going to show you how to produce your own homemade pineapple flavour carp fishing goo glug. It is a simple process and one you must try out! You will get some serious satisfaction catching carp using a bait you produced at home. So let's get started!
What you will need
- Concentrated Pineapple Syrup (we are using a tin of pineapples but the more highly concentrated the better)
- 400ml of water
- 250g / 1 cup of sugar
- Yellow food colouring
- Cornflour or plain flour
- Measuring jug for mixing
- Reusable bottle to store the goo glug
Measure out the 400ml of water in the measuring jug
Measure out 250g / 1 cup of sugar
Drain the syrup from the pineapple tin and set to one side. Ideally, the more concentrated the syrup the better. This tinned stuff was easy to pick up in the supermarket but if I was to make this again, I would get a stronger, more concentrated flavour.
Add the water, sugar and pineapple syrup to the saucepan
Melt the sugar over medium heat until the liquid is clear
In the measuring jug, mix the cornflour and a small amount of water. Do not add the cornflour directly to the hot liquid as it will cook and become stoggy
Add a few drops of yellow food colouring along with the cornflour mix to the saucepan and simmer for 5 minutes
Pour the mix into the measuring jug and allow to cool. When the liquid cools it will become thick and goo like
Once cooled add the goo to the reusable bottle
There you have it, a very cheap and simple homemade carp fishing goo glug. The concentrated pineapply syrup provides a lovely strong smell that the carp will love. As I mentioned, the more highly concentrated syrup, the better results.
Simply coat your rig in the glug goo before casting.
Note - if you plan to use PVA bags, add some salt when adding the sugar to the saucepan to ensure the PVA will not melt.
