1kg Live System Hard Hookbait Mix
Step 1: Pour required amount of Hemp Oil into bowl
Note 1: 5ml is normally mixed with. 2 medium eggs + 250g of mix but can increase Hemp Oil to 10ml if required.
Step 2: Add liquid egg into bowl
Note 2: To make shelf life baits, replace 30% of liquid egg with Liquid Bait Preservative.
Step 3: Mix liquids thoroughly
Step 4: Add hard hookbait mix to achieve desired consistency of paste
Step 5: Roll baits as required and allow to ‘skin’
Step 6: Boil or steam baits
Note 3: Boiling guidelines: 15mm = 90 secs, 18mm = 120 secs.
Step 7: Leave baits to dry for 12-24 hours, spread out in a dry environment.
Step 8: Either freeze and treat as frozen baits or leave to dry for a further 72hrs+ to fully air dry.
Note 4: Baits can be boosted by coating in liquid attractors. We recommend adding a thin coating before allowing to dry; this process can be repeated.
Buoyant & Semi Buoyant Hard Hookbaits:
- To make cork ball pop ups, mould paste around cork balls typically allowing a paste skin of >1m around the circumference of the cork ball (e.g. 12mm cork ball = 14mm pop up)
- To make cork dust wafters, add 3-5% cork dust to your powder mix before adding it to the liquid mix. You will need to trial the amount of cork dust to achieve the desired buoyancy.
Note 5: The more cork dust you add, the less efficiently your mix will bind.
