The recipe for success
Tim had been an angler all his life but in the last two years he had set himself a mission to catch a 20lb+ carp. However, he had been struggling to reach his goal and had always been a few pounds under that target weight. With that in mind I decided to try and help Tim reach that target weight and we put together a plan. After discussing the different types of ingredients and flavours he could use Tim set off to Merrington Carp Fishery in Shropshire for a three night session in September in anticipation of landing his target weight. Just 6 hours later I got the phone call I had been waiting for…. Tim managed to slip a 22lb mirror over the net cord! This was a massive achievement to happen so early on in the session and gave Tim the confidence boost he needed. The hook bait was AS1 rolled by CBS who source a number of raw ingredients from Target Baits. To prepare the hook bait I used a glug with a Sweet Almond taste to cover the baits with first, before covering the boilie with Active Boost - AVT24. This takes about a week to process and the end result is a boilie coated with a thick layer of Active Boost - AVT24 which is a ticking time bomb of goodness. From personal experience I have used this successfully and have smashed waters apart by using single hook baits with no free offerings. This just goes to show the pulling power of these hook baits.
