Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

I’M a big be­liever in try­ing to give my bait a boost in the cold and the best way I have found to do this is by us­ing a bait ad­di­tive called ‘Goo’.

This ad­di­tive at­tracts by mak­ing a cloud and by putting flavour into the wa­ter, but it does come with a warn­ing from me – don’t use too much!

Less re­ally is more with this pow­er­ful at­trac­tor and a blob the size of a pea added to the loaded Method or Hy­brid feeder is all you need.

I use the noz­zle on the bot­tle to spread it about a lit­tle so that it doesn’t come off on the cast.

Flavour-wise I pre­fer Tutti Frutti or Pineap­ple. It’s im­por­tant to make sure you get the Power Smoke ver­sions be­cause they are thicker and stick to pel­lets a lot bet­ter.

For deep wa­ter, where I may want a slower re­lease of the ad­di­tive, I seal it in with a layer of pel­lets. I do this by adding my hook­bait and a few pel­lets to the mould, then plac­ing a small Goo blob on them and cov­er­ing with more pel­lets be­fore press­ing the feeder into the mould.

You only need a small blob of Goo.
