Catch Reports

Matty on fire!

Posted in Catch Reports on 22nd September 2014

We've had so many catch reports coming in over the past several weeks it's been difficult to keep up with them, but one Essential Bait user who has been on fire in recent months is Matty Gosling, who has been catching lots of good fish, including a number of thirties and a couple of forties up to 46lb!!

Matty swears on the Black Snail freezer boilies when it comes to catching the bigguns and few could argue against him when you consider how many big fish he's caught since switching to our Black Snail a few seasons ago. Matt is a very talented angler and this shows you how effective a combination of good angling coupled with a good food bait can be. Awesome hauling Matty - Black Snail all the way!!


Mike on Bag 'n' Stick Liquids

The main function of liquids is to boost food signals in and around your baited rig and increase the chances of fish being pulled into the area. Stick Mixes, Method Mixes and Ground bait can simply be mixed together with water, but by adding a liquid food as well, you will be increasing the food signals coming from the bait.

On many occasions I’ve witnessed carp being pulled down from the upper layers on to the baited spot, and I have no doubt that this has been due to the liquids sending out attractive food messages through the water column.

Of course these liquids can be used for a number of other useful applications as well. For example, coating pellets with these liquids will disperse quicker/better messages of food than pellets used on their own, and a single Pop-Up launched out into the middle of nowhere will undoubtedly benefit from being soaked in a liquid for a few hours first.

I can honestly say that these Bag ‘n’ Stick Liquids have caught me a number of ‘bonus fish’ when I’ve been pretty much convinced that I would have struggled without using them. There will be a time and a place to use them, but ignore them at your peril!
