All my used pop ups of Marks get crushed up and put into stick mixes. I even use the corkballs to for rolling “match the hatch” ones where I'm allowed to use balls rather than dust…..

Sorry Matt I’m away until Monday. At least you got them mega rapid. To be fair the freebies are a first order thing too… I’ll Chuck you in something next time. Pearbo asked for mixed colours (which we do not do) so he got thrown in a free extra colour on a large order 😊

We can’t do any special orders now for the next few months, as we are far to busy trying to keep waiting times ar rapid.

The GPB2 is now outselling everything else we make by some way. People ovbs like them a lot 😊

Another one of the Dinton A team from white swan, ‘Johns Common’ 43lb6oz. James Pails has been doing the do over there this spring big time. S2 again. If one of them would use the garlics over there, they would clump them. But year after year the big Dinton fish get smashed on S2’s… So literally none of them will even try anything else, not with any confidence.

The GP1 is perhaps the greatest hook bait of modern times. I've caught on the rest of the range but I always revert to the garlic.

Put another order in today mate so I can stock up a bit after having that crazy session this week ended up with 14 out including that new 36lb PB I sent you in the end, definitely going to be my number 1 choice from now on with that sort of result I had, I even tried it against some others and it out fished them easily didn’t get a bite on other Hookbaits put yours back on and started catching again. Reason I stocked up this morning 👍

Often get asked how long the hook baits last and are effective for. I always tell customers they get better with age, even though they will lose a bit of smell to the human nose, they are still deadly effective.

The empty tub below is over 9 years old. Paul purchased these the first year SHB started whilst I was fishing Roach Pit. He found this tub with one S2 hook bait left in it, at the back of his garage. He caught the fish below from RP on that 9 year old S2 the other day… That’s pretty mad 😆

Thanks Nick for the kind words, but work still has to go on, no matter what’s happening in my personal life.

At the moment my aunt is still hanging in there… They told us she only had 24 hours to live a week ago, so she’s fighting.

Don’t want to sound patronising but well done Mark on still banging out the orders despite the hard times you’re going through with a loved one. The bait game isn’t a social one surrounded by friends all the time and can be repetitive and leave us with our thoughts too much. Very professional of you to keep going. No one would of resented you if you’d needed a break but you’ve put others first 👍🏼

Lots of messages asking when people can have the new hook baits. We are far to busy to release them at the moment unfortunately. In approximately three weeks or so, you will be able to order them as a special order. They will not be going onto the website until mid to late summer. But CF members will be able to get them first, just like the GPB2 before. No one will get them until then, so none of you are missing out.

This was my table yesterday morning. That lot is just the GPB1 & GPB2 that would not fit into the two bait storage cupboards, which were already overflowing. An hour after this photo was taken the table was empty. Until our current rush for the GPB2 subsides slightly, we can’t do anything regarding a new hook bait ovbs. We are completely up to date with all orders up until yesterday morning… All orders still going out within a week… And would like to keep it that way this year if possible.

As mentioned a few posts back, I will not be about for the next couple of weeks on here… Please contact us via WhatsApp or text on the work mobile if you need to get hold of us about anything.

The best bait I’ve used in over 30 years of carping was cheesy pepperami. The way it’s outer layer dissolved it was just immense. I almost cried when they stopped making it, in fact I’m still not over it nearly 20 years later

Nice, love a good cheese powder! Incredible for big roach in a ground bait, as you say the fats help. I think big fish know a calorific meal.

The liquids to a new hook bait we are going to release at some point soon.

Following on from what I wrote at Xmas on this thread about our curing process emulsifying fats... This bait will be based around a very moorish dried cheese powder, sourced from the US. Plus a very expensive hickory smoke. The cheese brings oodles of fat into our S2 base mix. Fat which I can then emulsify. I think these are very special indeed.

A couple of people have been given them to play around with so far... And they have been absolutely slaying carp with them. Stupidly so. They absolutely stink of strong cheese. They have not even been named yet

Thanks mate... She was a lump.

She was my first english 50+, and my PB until last year. 2013 that photo was taken, Roach Pit, the first year of SHB, four months after it had started, time flies. I was lucky enough to catch her three times inside 12 months. All on an S2 I think. She was absolutely addicted to them.

She was caught at least another seven or eight times by others on our hook baits as well, probably more... Eight times in total on an S2 alone.

Well said Joss, there are plenty of threads on this forum where you can fight as much as you want, if that is what you want to do.

It's the beginning of May... There are so many big carp coming out all over the place....

Go fishing

I will not be about for the next few weeks. Please do not message me on here... WhatsApp messenger, or text to our work mobile for anything order related.

Try not to argue too much, it's only fishing, it's meant to be relaxing, or so I am reliably told.

Quote Bluebeat... When are you hoping to have these in the TB Mark?

ASAP mate. Keeping our waiting times under seven days, and also trying to give TB & FO tackle shops stock is proving rather tricky right now, we are already so flat out as it is.

Gary Peet is away on holiday, and so is Ricci. I had told them both that they would have the stuff when they return.

Trouble is we are working seven days a week as it is right now. I have terrible family problems going on at the same time with my aunt who I mentioned being in critical care on here last week. They have resuscitated her numerous times in the past week. They are not going to anymore and she is literally going to die today we are being told. She is only 62. This is going to devastate my family very badly.

I am probably going to take a back seat from even looking at the forum for a while, whilst all this gets resolved.

Quote Scozza... Please keep posting them, I like looking at them.

Thanks mate.

I think poor Mozzi is getting a little bit of a rough ride on this forum now from a few people. I remember Nick from the old RMC/Cemex forum twenty years ago. He was just a kid then... But even back then, he openly spoke about his personal issues with autism. I have seen him publicly talk about it on this forum plenty too... So has everyone else. Since back then, he has obviously been doing his home work big style about carp bait.

Could someone please tell me, why certain people are trying to wind him up constantly on this forum? In fact do not bother, I don't really care.

Where I come from... That above, is lower than a snakes belly, you just don't do things like that. He openly admits to having some mental health issues. So leave him alone ffs. It makes you look like an absolute weasel targeting someone with these issues, just for a bite. It is not a good look at all.... For you, or for this forum. Sometimes he can't shut up, and he says random things by his own admission. If you do not agree with him, just ignore it. But deliberately targeting him whilst knowing the above, is not on in my book and needs to stop.

I do not know him from Adam... I've spoken to him a couple of times via Faceache messenger. He
comes across as a nice person to me.

Jeez, every morning before I start work I need to come and ‘clarify’ things… seriously?

Mozzi (Nick), Steve has been a customer of ours for a decade. Now I am having to post his personal messages… To reply to you, because you are ‘implying’ things, whilst trying to win arguments with people who are only trying to wind you up. This is the messages Steve sent me. No where does he mention your bait firm, or the other hook bait firm that you suddenly threw out there. So you are publicly denouncing one of your own customers as lying mate. Lying to me, or lying to you. Your customer just caught a PB, now is not the time to upset him or cause trouble for him.

If you want to keep your customers, please take this advice in the good spirit which it is meant… You need to stop now. Trouble is following you around, but you are fanning the flames constantly mate.

I’ll be telling Steve not to send me anymore photos... Just because I don’t need this grief. It is bank holiday Monday. Yesterday was Sunday. Both days before starting work, I have to come and reply to this stuff.

I like you Nick you seem like a good guy, but please stop this now on my work. They are just trying to get a bite from you...

It's not right to bicker on this thread, I made a positive comment about a friends achievement. I really do not care how it makes you feel that I say it was caught over my bait because it was. lots of it. proper hungry young fish in that lake. it'll be mid fifties in a year or two.

I have always, and will always, speak highly of the products Mark makes, as is well documented on here. they are very decent, and if someone wants to try alternative hookbaits over my feed that don't match it he is one of two companies I recommend. highly as it happens.

I would not have a clue about that, and don't really want to get involved about other bait companies, they have nothing to do with me Mozzi.

John was smashing lakes using our hook baits and particles for years, long before he was offered free boilies by anyone. Don't think he's too fussed. I have enough to deal with for SHB, without worrying about anyone else's business.

We have had a completely new type of hook bait, ready to launch for a while now. But the GPB2 has completely taken up our spring, even though that's not a new hook bait as such, as it's just a heavy fishmeal variant of the GPB1... Demand for it has still meant that we have been far too busy to even contemplate releasing another different hook bait yet. I also have the Tackle Box and Fish-On screaming at me for stock.

These are the things I worry about.

Johns articles are good, I do think going where he has for bait is a step down from where he was, sort of a testament to the hookbaits that results havent changed lol

Ginger Ricci is a God, apart from being ginger ovbs. Yeah he works full time, employs many people and he has a stunning missus too mate. Drives around in a £100k motor. He has one official day off of work a week... The ginger ninja, he's also one of the nicest people you could ever meet in life.

Ricci was a part of a truly exceptional year for my business in 2018/19 results wise, one that I am very personally proud of.

Ricci was top rod on Wingham... He absolutely devastated it.

John Cash was top rod on White Swan... He absolutely devastated it.

James Sherman was top rod on Frimley... He absolutely devastated it.

Three of the very busiest syndicates in the country. All full up with sponsored anglers who can fish when they want. Nothing exceptional about the above for us... Until you consider that ALL THREE of the above anglers work full time and have young families. All three have a successful work and family life.

All three will not go fishing without our hook baits, for jolly good reason. None of them get paid to go fishing. They earn far better money in 'real' life. None of them get paid by us.

In fact John was offered a lot of money, by the biggest bait firm around last year who were already giving him free bait... Just to not mention our hook baits again in public... He left said bait company, told them to poke their cash & free bait and went elsewhere, because he has principles. That is how important our hook baits are to his fishing.

All of that above makes me feel quite proud

Current turnaround is still within 7 days at the moment. All orders up until yesterday at 10am, went yesterday barring two.... We are so incredibly busy now though so not sure how long that will last now the GPB2 are on the website.

Order today, they will go out on our next delivery which will be Tuesday after the bank holiday mate.

And thank you for the kind words...

I’ve used S2’s for a good few years now… Ive had more luck with them than the garlics. It’s all I ever use…. Love them in solid bags or as singles…

Had fish out of the st Lawrence on them cast as singles… these fish probably have never seen a boilie.
before.

It’s funny seeing more and more anglers up in the grim carping waste ground that is the north east!

Fair play to him, his tip on supercharging maize works really well.

I’ve not dared the garlic hemp though.

I knew it wasn’t a criticism just thought I’d put a name to the face, nothing in your post insinuates you did know.

He’s got loads of friends within industry who’d love for them to use his bait so another testament to marks work 👍🏼

I have used them for years and for me the S2 always pulls it out the bag! I have had few on singles in the depths of winter so much so I always have them on one rod now…

I only fish evenings or days generally and s2 have accounted for all my pb over the last 3 years!

Interested in any replies, as I placed an order & received a pot of GPB1 recently after following this thread for a while and although I have caught fish on single hookbaits they have always been the bright visual ones.

Having followed the thread for a while I’ve just placed my first order. I only fish short overnighters, and haven’t generally found single hook baits the one at night (much better in the day) Have people found the s2 or garlic successful when fished as single baits at night, with no other freebies? Thanks, David

The GPB2 have just been added to our website, on the GPB page. No need for special orders for them anymore.

Every hook bait on our website has unfortunately increased by £1. Postage & packing has also increased by £1. It went up 25% alone last week in cost to us, we have been losing over £1 on all postage costs until it was changed.

We are still losing a small amount on postage even after the increase. The cost of cork balls rose by 25% in one fail swoop, without everything else increasing in price too.

I'll let a customer answer that for you. I am sure someone will soon.

The balanced are quite tricky for us. Our curing process adds weight after boiling which does not matter with an ultra buoyant pop up. The balanced are rolled to be just over buoyant, but then they are cured five times decreasing that buoyancy slightly.

They are by far our most popular hook bait now by a long way. We sell absolutely tonnes of them. I personally use a 13mm with a size 4 as I like them held down slightly more for big carp. The 16mm are ever so slightly more buoyant.

As far as I know you have never ordered from us. Any Carpforum member who I know has placed an order with us for the first time has been given a free tub. Order some pop ups and let me know, I'll chuck you in a free tub to try for yourself.

They are now our best selling variety of hook bait, so they must be 'alright'.

Why would he do that mate? His sole intention is to cause trouble with me every day now. They tried to get me banned for being a racist for calling him a 'Euro noddy'.

A racist with a Brazilian missus.

It does not stop. I did not post anything on this forum for two months. I only returned to defend myself from yet another attack from him. I am only EVER replying to what this man writes about me.

I'm meant to be working right now... Not sitting here going through this same rubbish with the same bloke over and over again.

None of this is my choice. I am being stalked online, by someone completely obsessed with me.

You wrote yesterday that I sent you one free tub and then got angry that you were trying to copy it...... This is a blatant lie. You ordered one tub of white S2... I sent you three tubs. You and your black forum enzyme friends then went on a tirade against my business on this forum. Numerous threads on this forum about my business were deleted because of you and your friends.

The final straw was when the free stuff I gave you (brown S2 cork balls), was used in tank tests, of one of my cork balls against your enzyme paste. A boiled/airdried bait v paste. Even the most basic bait maker would understand how unfair that was. These videos of your rigged tank tests were posted on the UCN baits Facebook page and on this forum. You used stuff that I gave you for free, to try your hardest to damage my business.That was truly low.

The only way to stop you lot was to post photo after photo of so many premium UK 40's and 50's. Something you and your enzyme friends could NEVER dream of. Your friends at UCN went out of business for the second time... You and your pal BB's enzyme paste plans seem to have gone nowhere... And EVER SINCE you have STALKED me on this forum. You're a VERY strange bloke.

Everyone saw this above. I know absolutely NO ONE on this forum. NO ONE despite what you think. The ONLY person on this forum I have met personally is Joss. I have not seen Joss in probably 15 years.

You continue to post absolute rubbish about me and my business. It's been pointed out to you by numerous people that you are OBSESSED with me. The people telling you this who you describe as my 'minions'... Are not even customers of mine. Let alone people I even know or have spoken to personally.

Screenshots links and quotes... This one quote shows how obsessed you truly are. This was more than two years ago now. Two years, and STILL you are banging on almost daily trying to get a bite from me. Your life must be so sad, so terribly sad.

Park lake stunner this morning S2….

Flew back from Brazil Friday evening. Ten hour flight to Paris, then a four hour delay onboard my London flight at Paris airport yesterday. Zero sleep on the planes, heavily jet lagged. I got a few hours sleep last night… To wake up and rush to visit my aunt in critical care at Kings College hospital. She died yesterday, they brought her back to life. She’s in a coma on life support and likely not going to ever wake up. Real world problems. Whilst this was going on, my work phone was pinging from customers on here, telling me that my stalker on this forum, had gone into one about me yet again (a lot of blatant lies too).

Exactly how much longer is this going to be allowed to go on for? It’s a ****ing joke now. It may have been deleted, but this freak is being given a free reign to attack me and my business virtually daily now, and no one seems to be interested in stopping it whatsoever.

Hi son. If you order GPB1 16mm from our website to cover what you need in GPB2… Message me back on work mobile with the full name on the order and what you actually require in GPB2. They are available in 13 & 16mm pop ups, and 13 & 16mm balanced. All are the same price as our 16mm GPB1 which you will be ordering from the website. Anything else which you purchase on the same order will come as normal.

That’s how people have been ordering them James. They are going onto the website proper this weekend, I’m back Sunday if the vultures outside my apartment don’t eat me first.

I posted earlier in the thread about the GBP1 wafters i bought being too buoyant...anyway ive managed to sort this by drilling a small hole and adding some putty to balance them out.

Ive fished 2 overnighters this week (7pm - 7am) on a fairly tricky little water where i have a winter ticket. 1 bite every couple of trips is good going this time of year -

Using the GBP1's - 2 nights, 6 bites, 6 landed, biggest 28lb common.

Oh ok don't know what changed then, I just couldn't get it to go gloopy like it did, I just ended up with tigers in what appeared flat cola , where as before I had a thick brown syrup all over the tigers.

I believe Coke made over here never contained Corn syrup. But in the states I believe it's used widely in the drinks industry.

I used to swear by tigers prepared in full fat coke, however around 18 months to maybe two years ago they didn't seem to be the same, they just didn't go as gloopy as they had in the past.

I asked the question on here, and someone suggested that due to pressure over health issues, that the recipe had changed slightly and that high fructose corn syrup had been replaced with another sweetener.

After reading Marks advice in relation to high fructose corn syrup, and how much the carp love it, I tried to source some and found it nigh on impossible in the UK and several posts from the US with health concerns, adding some weight to the theory that it may have been removed from coke cola.

Anyone else found the same ?

Yeah and I’ve finally tracked him down after all these years on the missing list. Wish I could track down his Thames spots

I honestly can’t get my head around how people have the front to earn a living from ripping off peoples ideas in an industry as niche as carp fishing (was).

You have a good memory. This one for cokey tigers, the salt cured boilie thread, and the rotting garlic in hemp threads were all Christmas giveaways. At the time I was recovering from cancer (pheyocromocytoma) and stuck at home for 18 months when I joined that forum. I’d always been a successful plasterer who carp fished before that.

Unfortunately all three Christmas giveaways were ‘robbed’… The salt cured boilies and the fermented hemp both ended up in Carpworld articles written by an absolute northern noddy. Both taken from those threads I wrote… He made himself a nice little niche for a while at shows etc and in mags. The bloke is a total fraud.

The cokey tigers I’ve seen claimed as others idea many times over.

Luckily I kept my mouth shut about those CW articles, started SHB whilst absolutely on my arse… And let our S2 do the talking.

I’ve been in paradise with an absolute sort for the past five weeks… While the northern noddy sells his bum for some free boilie stops and bait at any and every opportunity.

I’d say history proved ‘what was what’ in that little situation many times over. Talk is cheap… Facts are facts and they don’t lie.

Ever since, I have been far far more guarded about what I write or say in public… That is a great shame too because I actually have a lot to say, I also know soooo much more now…. But I cannot speak about most of it.

It was quite strange that I remember years ago deciding to give it a go and being disappointed the thread had disappeared from Cemex. Then forgetting all about it for a good 10-15 years, joining this forum, seeing your name and suddenly remembering that post from all those years ago

As recommend by an ex member cheers for the tip.*As its Christmas.......Tigers are such a lovely bait, go really well with hemp as everyone knows. Been around for a long long time, caught so many carp its untrue. Never normally have the need to add anything to them apart from a bit of sugar. Except maybe....Take some dry unprepared Tigers (i like mini's the best). Place them in a bucket and add enough Coca-Cola to cover them by at least 6 inchs. Proper Coke is best, not the cheap stuff. Leave these to soak for a couple of days. Drain the coke off into something and keep hold of it, put tigers into boiling water and boil for 20mins. (if you do it with the Coke it just gets messy, and the tigers take longer to cook). Soons the tigers are fully cooked drain all the water off and put hot tigers back into bucket with lid on. Tip the Coke you've saved plus a fair bit more bit more into the now empty saucepan and heat up. Then put this hot coke into bucket with the hot tigers. Add a fair bit of sugar, stir it all up and seal the bucket. Normally takes a few days sometimes longer, what your looking for is the liquid to have turned into a VERY sticky spunk like substance lol.What when you drink it makes you want another can straight away? One of the worlds biggest companies uses the most potent stimulators known to man to ensure you do. Bet theres a few bait companies who'd love Cokes budget when it comes to making sure their product is addictive.The spunk that is produced is pure dynamite, and makes the stuff sold in the shops look like muck. It sinks like a brick intact when watched from a boat. Its the ONLY thing ive ever seen that can provoke a responce similar to hemp. Carp will dig the bottom over long after the spunk has gone. Ideal in the margins with a spoon on a pole or best when able to use a boat. 1 mash spoon of mini Coked up tigers (little is more) with 4 spoons of tiger/coke spunk dropped from a boat is a meal that few carp ive seen can resist, and if you add some salted up hemp OMG

this is the carp forum bait section. Literally the most negative and argumentative section of any forum on earth.

Yep, on an s4. Mark doesn’t make freebies, so it would be over another bait wouldn’t it? Want a pic of my bait bag and the rig?

Blimey, you try and be honest what you use - Jays freebies soaked in really good 2 part CSL (Mirage), and Marks hookbaits. What’s the prob with that? Or should I use bags of maggots and say it was caught on a “big” brand like a lot of others do lol.

Thank you for joining and then in your first post dictating to those of us that have made thousands of posts on here what we can and can’t say and suggesting we might want to try another forum.

I’m sure I speak for quite a few long term users on here when I say you might want to try another one yourself. Cos if that’s gonna be the standard of your contributions I can’t see you lasting long with an arrogant attitude like that.

I use these awesome hook baits Mark produces and have caught a lot of fish including my UK PB at 57.8lb on GPB1. I seldom go on forums but did so as this seemed a positive area for catches and tips. Please guys leave the negativity out or go to another forum where arguments are the norm. Well done the guy catching this fish on an S4 and I don't really care what other bait he used or that he posted on their FB pages. Just a polite request guys

I like to support “small” companies. At least I’m honest and not saying it’s all on brand x!

Nice carp. Bit surprised to see the same photo posted on Facebook under Mirage Baits and A Bait. You covered the pop up, dip and freebies well, but I was disappointed that you haven't mentioned any particle or pellet providers, as then you could have had a famous five of bait companies with your pic. Still a hat trick is a decent effort...

If you trim them, make sure you take lumps of cork out, not boile. Otherwise they’ll get more buoyant

I’m not sure even a size 2 would balance them. I must’ve trimmed off more than half the bait and they were still pulling up a size 5 with a micro swivel. I’m wondering if I’ve been sent pop ups by accident

You're right , I don't see a problem with uber buoyant hook baits. It just means you can use a bigger hook. If it's balanced a size 2 shouldn't be a problem. It's only in you're mind where it doesn't work.

Pull out lumps of cork, that’s where the bouyancy is.

Or use it to your advantage to use a bigger, heavier hook……

From my understanding the whole point of the curing process with the crushed cork baits is that it penetrates rather than coats. You should be fine cutting down a bit.

Another option could be low diameter bait drill and poke a bit of lead wire from your leadcore in.

Hi All - i have some of the GPB1's cork dust balanced baits, but theyre much to bouyant to be balanced out by my usual size. Any tips for the best way to balance them out - i dont really like cutting pieces off as all the coating is removed

This is a general question for anyone really. I've gone from using my regular foodbait to a fruity fish meal,

Generally use S3 & S4, would you be all still happy to use these over fishmeal, I'd say absolutely no problem; but I'd like some feedback if possible.

GP.

Just put and order in now. Looking forward to trying the GBP2 as well as the faithful originals.

On another note, I have some really old SSP and SSB I think. I can’t for the life of me remember what that are exactly. Can you shed any light on what they are?

Also will they still effective after 3 years sitting in the shed?

Thanks

As Dave kindly said, they are made using the same base mix and liquids as the GPB1, with the addition of 33% pre-digested fishmeal and GLM being added to the base mix.

Put simply....The GPB1 contains no fishmeal whatsoever, the GPB2 contains lashings of the finest fishmeal.

Rapid Greg. Where we cleared all of our Christmas orders yesterday, anything ordered today/tomorrow will be going out on our next delivery, which is Monday.

As before... Order 16mm GPB1 cc from our website, to cover what you need in GPB2… Text message or WhatsApp me on our work mobile as soon as you have done it, with the full name on the order, and what you actually require in GPB2. Anything else on the same order will come as normal.

We have loads of everything including GPB2 in stock, we have those in 13/16mm pop ups & 13/16mm balanced.

As Jim said a small bit of lead wire from inside lead core, a couple of tuns around the shank and trim to perfectly balance. We have to make them buoyant enough for a range of hook sizes from 2 up.

Also though, the base mix has zero buoyancy, it's food, not pop up mix. Hacking away at that will only make them even more buoyant. Trim visible lumps of cork that you can see from the outside. This will also reduce the buoyancy for you mate.

Well done Greg! That’s a pukka photo in the winter fog. GPB2 as well 🥳

All I told Greg to do was cut the top quarter off of one of our 16mm crushed corks with a serrated sharp knife. To fish them flat side up on a suitable pop up rig. To fish them over half baits. This has always been a proper edge. Carp only see round pop ups. A round pop up in a carp’s mouth, is incredibly easy for them to deal with. Putting a flat edge on a pop up makes the mechanics of any rig work so much better. Pressured carp will often pick up halved baits with gusto, even when they are slightly wary of round balls. When a flat sided bait is on the rig… When they try to spit it out, it flies at weird angles in their mouth, unlike a round ball which flies out of their mouth in a straight line. One will get you far more bites. It’s not the round ball either.

All of our 16/17mm crushed corks are suitable to do this with. They will still hold up a big hook forever. I’d much rather trim a 16mm flat than use a 13mm personally.

Well done Greg 🥳

Yes mate we have loads done in both 13 & 17mm. Add white S2 balanced to your order (same price), and then WhatsApp or text our work mobile number, with exactly what you require in the order.

That is what folks have been doing to order the GPB2 as well, simply ordering GPB1 from our website (same price) and then texting our WhatApping us with the sizes and variant they require the GPB2 in (13 or 16mm pop ups/13 or 16mm balanced).

Anything else on the same order will obviously come as normal.

It's very important to message me as soon as the order is placed, adding the full name on the order too. So I can pull it straight out, and make sure the correct items get sent.

Good to know, thanks Mark.

Do you have any pink balanced S2 at the minute?

Quote… Took delivery of some 12mm S2's yesterday. They have always served me well when it gets cold and bleak.

Lovely PM from Sam (Leeroyjenkins)…. If you can’t read the text it says “No joke, lake has not done a fish since 23rd November. One of those S2’s I just had delivered, flicked out, 10 mins later, 46lb mirror”.

Bloody well done Sam!!!! I just see on another post it’s your new pb too 🥳

Show us a better photo when you get home. Bloody well done mate 🥳

They will be even better than fine mate. They will have lost their smell to your nose. But that has only all been sucked inside.

They will be super effective. I have customers that would pay you double the value for that older tub

Hi Mark, how long would you say the 'shelf life' of the S2 CC would be? I have a couple of pots about 2/3 years old that have started to turn a bit. Sounds like these would actually still be good to use?

Thanks

Part 2


That fat, and the emulsification of it, is one of the greatest reasons our hook baits are so effective in my humble opinion. We are doing lots of things, that no one else in our industry has been doing over the past decade. Many speak of 'curing' or 'culturing', or any other variant of a similar theme since we first started... The truth is though, they have never had the first clue what we are actually doing, or more importantly, why we are doing it. That's the other reason I have to be very wary about what I have always let out in public... It's a dog eat dog world out there, as I have found out so many times along the way.

Our company logo, has always been a hook bait, with whirlwinds surrounding it. I have often spoken over the years of our hook baits getting substantially better, with age... Here is the reason why. We do not add preservatives at the rolling stage of our bait, or any liquids other than fresh egg whatsoever. None of the liquids are harmed/damaged by extremely high temperatures (100c). The shelf life, is added via the outside of the bait, once they are finished being palm rolled. The very centre of the bait, does not ever see this preservation, and this is very important, as in exactly what I am referring to now. They are pure food, made with fresh eggs. The preservation is done using natural products to the very outside of the hook bait. Air is not allowed to get near that food inside, thus keeping the hook bait preserved over long periods. But inside the hook bait itself... Just like our company logo... There is a whirlwind slowly going on, a whirlwind which increases over time. They are actually 'ripening' with age.

I hope that some of our customers found some of that interesting.

Have a wonderful Christmas with your families all of you.

Regards

Mark

I promised you all a while ago that I would write something about fats on here when I got the time. Here it is, I hope some of you bait enthusiasts on here enjoy it and glean something useful from it.

The great attraction of fat to carp, emulsifying those fats.

The fish which we all desire to catch (carp), love fat and are very highly attracted to it. If you think of things, which really attract carp better than anything else, fat is always normally involved very highly indeed in the whole equation. Peanuts are around 50% fat. Hemp seed is between 30-50% fat. Trout/halibut pellets are covered in fish oil, fish oil is virtually purely made up of different fats. 30% omega 3s, the rest is made of other different types of fat. Even maggots, are made up of 25% fat. That's just a few things, that we all know carp love... A few natural things, which attract carp better than anything else. All of them, are very high indeed in fat. Emulsification of fats, is a very important part of our own human bodies workings. Our digestive system relies heavily on naturally produced glycerol, to break those fats down, when they get into our lower intestine and are digested.

A carp has a much simpler gut than a human being. But in a similar vein to humans, also similar to every other living thing on the planet, they rely heavily on salts, sugars & fats to survive. They find these things incredibly attractive for that very reason. I will now let you into a very closely guarded secret of mine, a secret which I have kept to myself for well over a decade. For commercial reasons I had too. I am not a scientist, and do not purport to be. But 1000's of UK anglers personal bests using our hook baits, gives me a small basis, with which to share some of the secrets as too 'why' exactly those 1000's of anglers caught their personal bests using our products.

Our hook baits are made of pure food. Very highly attractive food. We do not use inferior pop up mixes like everyone else does. We use pure food in every single one of our hook baits. That food, is very high in fats. I purposely will use ingredients that are extremely high in fat, in every single one of our base mixes. The reason for this, is because with our curing process, I can drag that fat out of the hook bait, and highly emulsify it. Break it down, and then put it back inside the hook bait again alongside our own liquids. This is incredibly attractive to a carp once these fats are more soluble. These fats do not have a smell; these fats do not even have a taste which I can determine. But carp find them absolutely irresistible. The liquids that go into our hook baits, have always contained glycerine. No big secret there. For over a decade anyone who knows anything about bait, would correctly assume we add glycerol to our cures, to help harden the hook bait, and aid with shelf-life properties. That was always my initial intention too. The glycerine serves a very different extra purpose to that as well though. In exactly the same way our own intestine uses glycerol to emulsify and break down fats... That is the same as what I am trying to replicate with the first go of our curing process which all of the hook baits go through... The high fat base mix, once palm rolled with fresh eggs and cork... Is boiled as normal just as you would imagine. Once boiled, the hook baits are dried, but not dried totally to a bone for this first go. This is important. Our cure is added, in a pressurised, heated situation. Because of the way the glycerine in our cure, reacts with the still damp (h20) hook bait, once heat and pressure are applied, all of the h20 in the hook bait is pulled out immediately. With that h20 from the bait, comes all of the lovely fat from the base mix. The glycerine does this. This reaction, leaves far more liquid in the container than the sum total of the cure which was first added added. Normally around double. As more heat is applied, the fats, h20 and cure, are all mixed up together, and pulled back into the bait. Once the hook bait has absorbed all of this liquid, this time, unlike the first time, the hook bait is dried to a bone to remove all of the h20 completely from the bait. The fats are now back inside, but they are now molecularly different, to how they were before. They have been highly emulsified, and are consequently now far easier for a carp to detect. Think of it, in a similar way to a pre-digested fishmeal. It's now far more soluble. Our hook baits go through our curing process another 3 or 4 times, depending on the hook bait in question. Now though, every time they go through that process, there is no h20 in the bait at all. Now so nothing is dragged out of the bait anymore. This only happens when h20 is part of the equation, it is needed for this reaction to take place.... Liquids are only pumped in to the hook bait now.

If you are waiting for an order of GPB2 from us (or a normal order), everyone will receive their orders over the next few days. We have been so crazily busy this Christmas, mainly because of special orders for these GPB2. This lot went out early this morning, more than this left us on Friday just gone too. Loads more are going early tomorrow & the same Weds. We will be completely up to date with all orders, both special orders for GPB2 & our normal orders from the website, before Xmas delivery finishes for us on Thursday afternoon.

Please be patient, Xmas post always slows things down slightly.

Thank you mate, that's exactly what I done yesterday.

Over the years I've never forgot... This year is the first time... But it has cost me. Two years ago I paid for two years, and this year it completely slipped my mind after not paying last year. Because I was at the very end of my holiday, I did not see the emails.

Put it on auto renewal yesterday, three years was most they let me pay for at a time.
