People will want different things from their baits depending on circumstances.

If you’re sticking them out 100 yards then a firmer bait is definitely better but if you’re fishing short sessions and are fishing within catapult range it’s perfectly normal to want a softer bait that is instantly pumping off attraction, and if pre-soaked/washed out can give the fish the impression they have been in the water longer.

Different strokes for different folks. He isn’t ‘incorrect’ as you so bluntly put it.

I do in the main that's why i use a freezer bait, but i did have a couple of very good sessions using some very very firm shelf life baits i was given, the things were like marbles and i know the fish were feeding on them well before they broke down.

Be different.

Incorrect, if you're putting bait out with a stick you need firm baits. Secondly a firm bait doesn't always mean breakdown times are overly long. If you want to speed them up then chop's is an option.

Hard/firm baits can also trip fish up if everyone else is doing the standard soft freebees, carp love a good crunch.

Ok for hookbaits but free offering you want them soft or to slow breakdown.

No freezer space at home sadly. I like the bait but it's too hard in shelf-life form. I've used the bait booster without much help. Any ideas please on something that will really soften Live System please?
