We class the K5 as a ‘sister bait’ to the incredible Shellfish B5, simply because it’s built upon the same high quality food values as the B5, but with a number of subtle differences. It is still contains all the nutritional values of a high quality fishmeal formulation and is a classic all season food bait. Among the changes, the Robin Red has been removed and replaced with a higher level of krill meal (hence the ‘K’) and the sweet/fruity attractors of the B5 have been replaced with our Antarctic Krill concentrate and squid powder to give the finished bait a lovely ‘krill/fish’ aromatic profile that spells FOOD!

As with the B5, the K5 has a high level of crustacean extracts to retain its crunchy-like texture, which greatly imitates much of the carp's natural food and makes it different to so many other baits – remember, carp love to crunch!

The bait needs no introduction whatsoever and will catch straight from the off. In a nutshell, the K5 is extremely attractive, highly digestible and is an absolute winner on any venue. After all, what else would you expect from the Essential stable after 37 years of cutting-edge bait development.

Good quality food baits

Ben Thompson with a stunning 47lb 5oz pb mirror caught on B5 freezer boilies when the fish seemed totally pre-occupied with naturals!
I can't begin to stress the importance of using a high quality food bait when it comes to catching carp on a regular basis. A bait formulated with nutritional ingredients will be sending out food signals long after the liquid attractors have been dispersed, this due to the fact that the ingredients themselves will be breaking down and sending out messages of food into the surrounding water.

Cheaper baits that have little or no nutritional value might sound more attractive on the pocket, but they will cost you dearly when it comes to producing the goods. Once any liquid attractors have dispersed, the bait will not be sending out any food signals at all, but further to this, will have no nutritional benefit whatsoever.

Carp, like all other fish, soon learn to recognise a food source and will continue to eat it again and again if it provides them with a sense of nutritional satisfaction. They have the ability to detect a nutritional food source prior to consumption (food signals coming from the bait) and after ingestion. With this in mind, we have developed what we believe to be the highest quality range of nutritional food baits available, and the success of the B5 alone has certainly gone some way to proving this.
