I really liked the Dunns River Caribbean BBQ seasoning personally Stephen for warm water use, which I mentioned in that post. It's very high in salt (37%) plus a load of herbs & spices, which give it a nice tasting kick. It worked very well for me straight off the bat too at Burghfield. It also made a nice coating in practical terms, one that lasted well when immersed. The rough outside of one of our crushed cork pop ups, holds the coating exceptionally well, better than a cork ball does I found with these BBQ S2.

In cold water, I'd personally be wanting a milks/betaine/fruit enhancer mix of powders myself. The world is literally your oyster though. The more the merrier! Milkshakes, powdered desserts, loads of stuff in the supermarket you can incorporate into a coating.

You could try mixing some BBQ seasoning, with powdered betaine... That will work mate.

Hi mark if you was to coat your s2 baits what would be the one powder you would use if you was only going to do it once and wanted to make sure it was 100% bang on?

Sounds great! will definitely be giving it a good go with a few different mixes. Will take some pics and get them up once done.

I think I am mixing up what you do to get the goodness into your hookbaits with the coating stage

If others are going down the coating route - we should get a thread specific for that setup, exchange coating recipes, successes and failures

Hi Neil. You could try mate, all you could mess up is a few hook baits if it did not work. I've never tried that myself, I have always just coated them the once. Doing them once does not affect the buoyancy to much, the coating also lasts a long time when placed into water anyway.

They pick up an incredible amount of powder just doing them once. (You'll be surprised just how much powder you actually use.) They pick up the bulk of it obviously when first placed into the bowl of powders... But they will pick up a lot more when on the baking tray before and after the oven treatment, and even more for the first hour which they are drying on the radiator.

I only just noticed, that the copy and pasted post I put onto here, was to many words for one post... Consequently the last couple of paragraphs of text were missing from the original post. I've added those paragraphs, to the top of the following post, which contains the photographs.

Hi Mark,

Very keen to give this a go, rolling some hookbaits this weekend to coat in Liver Powder.

1 question - can this process be repeated 2,3,4 times to build up layers of coating?

I am sure I have read from you before about doing this several times to get the best effect?

Oh and some lucky bugger on a Shefford water has a free pot of Garlic popups, where i left them there first time out with them


Thanks,
Neil.
