After years of development we are finally ready to go. After trying 100’s of batches with the “normal” way of doing shelflifes we just weren’t happy. We also couldn’t get our baits to not go off after 4-5 months without using very high levels of the normal preserves or drying the baits to death. Neither of which we wanted to do.
We now feel we have the perfect compromise. If kept sealed and looked after (ie not in sunlight and in a cool place), these baits will last 10-12 months before they will start to turn. The packaging is also key as it doesn’t allow the bait to breath. Once opened the bait should be used within 6-8 weeks as oxygen and moisture will have entered the bag and will set the bait off. It’s not an exact science as there are too many variables temperature/moisture etc…
The preserves/stabilisers we have settled on are human grade and water soluble. This meaning once in water, the bait will absorb it and the preserves wash out over time. The baits being soluble, it doesn’t take too long giving you what we believe to be as close to a freezer bait in terms of solubility and activity as possible.
The Freshwater Shrimp has been our biggest seller in recent years and with its incredible track record at all times of year on the most demanding venues around it’s easy to understand why.
When we originally put this mix together it was with the big weedy naturally rich waters at the front of our minds. The type of waters where the fish certainly did not need to eat bait to survive and grow big. We needed a bait with a real natural profile to compete with the abundance of natural foods found in these super rich waters and it was on this basis that the ‘Shrimp’ was born.
Although formulated and tested on some of the UK’s notoriously difficult big pits the shrimp has proven to be equally effective on todays highly pressured smaller venues. The ‘Shrimps’ all round effectiveness has led to it being widely regarded as the ultimate modern Carp boilies.
