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!!

Nutritional Base Mixes

Rob Fielding knows the importance of using a high quality food bait and as soon as he switched over to using Essential Baits, it completely transformed his fishing.

It almost goes without saying just how important I believe a good quality nutritional base mix is when it comes to catching carp on a consistent basis. You’ve only got to look at the success of the B5, year after year, to understand that a good quality food source will completely out-fish baits with lower nutritional values.

One of the most important things to remember is that carp have the ability to search out and recognise food signals prior to consumption. In other words, a good quality food source will spell the word FOOD as it releases ‘attractor signals’ into the surrounding water.

Baits constructed with little or no food value are unable to do this, and once any added attractors have been dispersed into the surrounding water, there will be no more food signals coming from the bait. In short, a good quality food bait will continue to send messages of food long after other baits have stopped working, and will continue to prove more successful, both short term and long term.
