Boosted Hard Hookers

'New for 2019'

By popular demand, we have now added Hard Hookbaits to compliment our range of freezer and shelf life boilies. Furthermore, these 'high-attract' hookaits come soaked in a dedicated Liquid Food to further boost their pulling power and release a steady diffusion of food signals into the surrounding water column for at least 48 hours. They also contain added hardeners such as egg albumen and whey protein concentrate, which in turn will greatly minimise the attention from nuisance fish, diving birds and crayfish. Super hard, super attractive and an absolute 'must have' in many situations.

Available in Shellfish B5, Black Snail & Salami Cream, each with their own dedicated Liquid Food to match.  

Packed in grip seal bags of 200 grams and available in 12mm, 16mm and 20mm. Price = £5.95 per pack.

Note: These baits have been fully dried before being coated in liquid, which renders them 'shelf life' for 9 months from date of purchase.

Hard Hook Baits (Mike's view)

There are often times throughout the season when I find myself having to use hard hook baits. There’s nothing worse than reeling in after you’ve seen a frenzied amount of fishing activity over your baited area, only to find that your hook baits have been nibbled away by nuisance fish! Some venues are obviously more prone to nuisance fish activity than others, but it’s not just nuisance fish that can be a problem. Diving birds or even pick ups from swans will often result in ‘missing hook baits’!

Hard hook baits will alleviate this problem, in fact, I actually think it’s advantageous when a diving bird picks up my hard hook bait. It gives me confidence that my presentation is good, and as the bird drops the rig, I actually believe it straightens everything out and gives me a better presentation that I can achieve via casting. I can remember fishing at Frampton some years ago, when the only time I could seemingly get a bite, was after a coot had picked up and dropped my hard hook bait!
 

Top Tip

After you’ve made a batch of hard hookers, leave them out on a towel to air dry for at least ten days, preferably in a warm dry place. Once they have sufficiently dried out, put them in a polythene bag and add a small amount of ‘Boilie Glug’ or ‘Liquid Food’ and shake well. For extra convenience transfer them to an empty pop-up jar or similar before placing them in the fridge or the freezer until needed. If keeping in the fridge, make sure you give them a good shake every few days and top up the liquid if and as required.
