View Full Version : Liquids to cover bait

24-01-2007, 21:28
Evenin' all,
Im thinking of using a flavouring over my bait which isnt the same as that of the boilie or pellets or anything, but so that it will be a good sign of that bait being mine if you see what i mean?!
I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on how much liquid would be needed to not overpower the bait but to give a subtle punch, per kilo of particle, pellet boilie mix??
Also any advice on a liquid would be good as if the inclusion rate of liquid needs to be quite high, a fairly cheap liquid would be needed.

Cheers alot

an amino based liquid would be ideal cant really over do that, personally wouldnt go with an artifical flavour

Marmite etc is good as a boilie dip a bit viscus to cover baits etc I personaly use the new knorr stock cubes try drinking on really salty and moreish i use 2/3 cubes to a litre of water and i mix my groundbait with it etc.

im with goodey....why flavour your particles/pellet/boilies...?????

Labelling is all very well, but its not nutritional, is it? Thats the important thing. Flavour labels are just pH or alcohol-oxidation by-products at best. And although they may make your bait stand-out in the short-term, carp will soon differentiate the label danger.

So...natural soaks that at least offer something that they need. Molasses is a good one....CSL, and hemp oil....salmon oil....

Personally, I would just use the very cheap option of salt and/or sweetener and/or spicy.

Try adding cayenne pepper (or chilli) to your particles...wth some salt...or just use a sweetener. And a bit of oil.

Experimentation is the key - but just adding amino liquid is the expensive option for particles/pellets.

remember too much oil in a mix with hemp for too long will make it float
