Using a Brazil hookbait tomorrow- uncooked On the hair. I have blitzed half the bag through the blender for a Small stick -
it still has very small bits of nut init, is it okay as I have not cooked or soaked them? Not putting any free offerings out!

As a hookbait I just use half a bit straight from the bag. You only have to drill one out to see the amount of oil that oozes out, fish on the bottom over hemp with confidence!

Sounds like a good plan, thanks. I was going to do crushed brazils mixed with some crumb boilie in a mesh bag, slid down the hook link to mask the hook and keep it all straight on the cast....but I like the sound of something that has worked well for you so I'll give that a whirl

little tip for you

when fishing with half a brazil on the hook

use a ground bait, slice up a few cooked brazils like garlic slices

and don't forget....you don't need many brazils at all to be successful

Thanks both. Just bought some from Asda (£1.80 for 150g) which I think will be more than enough for my next session. I'm going to prep them the day before so they're nice and fresh and I don't think I'm going to use anything to flavour them as I want the natural oil to do the business.

Thanks again for your help

Use for all three . Brazilís have differing buoyancy so pick the one that suits your rig

ive only ever fished them as a pop up mate.

I don't see any reason why you wouldn't/couldn't fish them as a bottom bait, but like you, the places ive used them have been rather silty

Ah makes sense, thanks mate. Stupid question, but can you fish a Brazil nut as a pop up, bottom bait or wafter? I'm assuming you can, but want to understand if it best used as one type of set up over the other.

The place I fish is a bit silty with patches of gravel here and there, and a few bits of low lying weed. I tend to cast an empty rig out onto my chosen spot and then I reel it in to see if the hook comes back with any crap attached. If it does, I fish Ronnie rig, but if its nice and clean I go for a bottom rig (combi or blowback)

Assuming I will cast into both areas, would I be OK to use half a Brazil nut on any of those rigs? I wondered if they always always floated (hence the daft questions)

the Korda wrap is what I use mate

I wrap mine to save them splitting and the cork popping out.

Thanks for the tips gents, that's great.

Why shrink wrap them? I've got some korda bait wrap which I could use, but just wondering why. Is it because they start breaking down?
