THE EXPERT’S VIEW
THIS year I’ve been using solid PVA bags and getting great results. These small, highly-attractive parcels of bait are perfect for short session fishing, and I like to add a few little liquid ‘extras’ to mine to give them a bit of extra pulling power.
People have been adding liquid attractors to solid bags for years, but those I like best have contrasting make-ups and consistencies. But before the liquids are added, I like to add a small amount of CCMoore Milk and Nut Crush to the bottom of my bag.
This is a blend of nut particles and fine water-soluble powders.
Next I add my lead and hookbait, and the bag is now ready for the liquid element. First I add a thick, dense liquid called Roasted Nut Extract. This hugs the lakebed when the bag breaks down. On top of this I pour a slug of CCMoore Hemp Oil. This liquid is much thinner and releases attraction up into the water layers.
By combining the two, you can create a spread of attraction across the lakebed and up into the water column, and the combination of the two is a big edge, especially going into the cooler months of the year.
This pretty mirror fell to solid PVA bag tactics.
LIQUID ATTRACTORS Using liquids of different densities helps to spread the attraction from the lakebed up through the water layers. THE PERFECT PACKAGE Using powdered bait additives in a solid bag helps to keep the carp grubbing about for ages.
