THIS MONTH: DNA Baits, Sticky Baits, Bait-tech
There’s some interesting developments in this month’s Baitworld, including the news that DNA Baits have released their hugely popular S7 and SLK in new sizes. There’s also several new exciting releases for Sticky Baits and Bait-tech
S7 and SLK Shelfies – New Sizes
DNA pride themselves on doing things a little differently while producing the best product they can, so it comes as little surprise that they have released these two premium baits in a unique manner. Whilst the 12mm shelf-life baits are nothing revolutionary, making 8mm baits available to the masses, is. Available either as the S7, or as the SLK, they are sure to have a multitude of uses and offer something that most carp certainly won’t have seen before. Both baits are only available in 5kg bags, with there being a slight premium for those wishing to purchase the 8mm.
The S7 is a proper fishmeal. Dark red in colour – thanks to a generous helping of Haith’s Robin Red, alongside the unbeatable LT90 and CPSP90 and is crammed full of a superb Krill meal. The S7 also incorporates a uniquely hot, sweet blend of seven spices and salts and is rounded off with a subtle peach and orange flavour package.
Their second offering, the SLK is lighter in colour, almost earthy and has a completely natural make-up. The main attractors are Yeast Extract, Hydrolysed Liver Powder and Fenugreek, along with a unique blend of natural salts and spices. Once more they have used the LT and CPSP90, as well as a little milk powder, some premium CLO and liquidised shrimp, liver liquid and krill hydrolysate.
As the name suggests, this premium grade, cold-pressed oil is derived from one of the finest angling baits of all time. It is also recognised as the principal attractor within hempseed itself. This oil has a wonderful, nutty taste and aroma and a nutritional profile that is rich in omega oils, vitamins and minerals. As with the other products within the range, it is PVA friendly so, alongside being one of the greatest additions to your spod mix or boilies ever, it is also perfect for dampening down a bag/stick mix and/or coating pellets with.
Supplied in their signature 1L jerry cans (pun intended), this top quality, pre-digested Liquid Liver is packed full of amino acids, providing a strong feeding response from carp. The qualities of this meaty liquid have been known for generations. It is a superb additive, boosting the attraction of any bait.
Instead of the usual over-flavoured ‘blanks’ that seem to be prevalent on the shelves of many bait companies, these bespoke hookbaits are full of the best natural attractors that Sticky could lay their hands on. First and foremost, there is an exclusive Norwegian squid hydrolysate, the all-time classic squid and octopus flavour, as well as other fish proteins, powdered palatants and greenlipped mussel powder. They come in a pot of mixed colours, with a soft white and washed out, dull pink and yellow too. And they are available in two sizes, either 12mm or 16mm.
Another recenrt addition to their liquid food range, this oil is loaded with Omega 3 and Omega 6, providing the essential fatty acids that carp need. Sourced direct from Scottish fish farms, it is best used for glugging and glazing boilies and hookbaits. Being Pva-friendly, it can also be used within bags if applied to pellets and other smaller food items.
This totally natural liquid comprises a fermented anchovy extract, salt and sugar, giving it a strong, salty-sweet taste that carp will love. The Sticky version is actually used in Thai cooking and is therefore human-grade, meaning it is of the very highest standard. As well as primarily making a great particle soak, it will also double up nicely as a glaze when poured over boilies and pellets. Once again, as it is a Pva-friendly liquid, its extremely soluble nature means that it would make an ideal addition to a PVA bag, releasing extra attraction within the water column almost immediately once resting on the lakebed.
Designed to replicate the Manilla boilies, these wafters will slowly sink under the weight of a hook, negating the weight of the rig and leaving a counter balanced bait. Rolled in a slightly lighter shade than the boilies themselves, they should blend in perfectly once those have ‘washed out’ after a few hours in the lake. Ideal for those ‘match the hatch’ situations, fishing as singles, or in partnership with any product within the Manilla range.
Bait-tech have listened to their customers and decided to produce these XL pouches of singlecolour pop-ups. Available in both the Poloni and Triple-n, they come in white and pastel shades of pink and yellow. The Poloni are available in 14mm and 18mm, whilst the Triple-n come in either 15mm or 18mm. There is also a limited edition ‘specials’ range for the Triple-n, these being a slightly more vivid shade of pink and yellow, for those that prefer their hookbait to stand out more. With an estimated 110 hookbaits in each pouch and free postage too, they’re certainly good value for money.
With summer looking like it’s not giving up just yet and another predicted heatwave just around the corner, Bait-tech have released this handy 3½kg resealable bag of floating biscuits. Ideal for those long, hot days and/or last minute hour-long sessions when the last rays of sun are dancing across the surface of the pond. Keep them in the boot of the car and you’re ready to go at the drop of a hat!
