We are very exited about the release of this natural squid-based additive and knew it was something very special a couple of years ago when we first dropped it into the B5 with outstanding results. Unfortunately it was very difficult to source an on-going supply, but that has now changed. This product has been used in ‘hushed circles’ within the aquaculture industry to induce fish into feeding, and those fortunate enough to have used it in the past will now be extremely happy that we have secured a constant supply! This is the product we use in our new Natural Squid Pellets and is a superb addition within the B5 for anyone wishing to have their baits custom rolled with a different attractor profile.

Powdered Additives and Extracts

Long time Essential Baits consultant Rick Golder with a stunning '48' from a mega difficult venue. Rick knows the importance of a good food bait combined with the correct ingredients to trigger a feeding response. His results prove this year after year. 

The inclusion of powdered additives and extracts within a boilie recipe will undoubtedly make a massive difference in terms of attraction and palatability. Used at the correct inclusion levels, they will trigger a feeding response and lead to prolonged feeding. They can also be hugely beneficial at repelling nasty sediment odours from 'tainting' the bait. The FF6 found within the B5 is a classic example of this and will always make sure your baits smell 'sweet', even when fishing amongst horrible black silt. 

Many of these products are used extensively within the aquaculture industry to promote feeding, so it goes to show that these ingredients will play a huge part within the inclusion of a successful bait recipe, both short and long term.

Top tip

Betaine is an excellent ingredient for triggering the carp's receptors. If you want an 'instant' feeding response for short session fishing, just pour 20ml Boilie Glug or Liquid Food over 1 kilo of boilies and sprinkle one level tsp of betaine over the top before shaking vigourously.
