It’s getting colder now, and I’ve been looking for something to boost my boilies, so I thought I’d give this product from Dynamite Baits a try....
I use quite a few of the ‘Frenzied’ range from the same stable and have caught plenty of fish with them, so I was fairly confident that this would produce similar results.
The paste itself is supplied in a snap shut clear plastic container, which helps keep the bait in tiptop condition, even if it’s been sitting in the bottom of your rucksack for a week or two. One of the main problems I’ve had with paste in the past is that it has a tendency to dry out if left too long; not so with this one, so plus points straight away.
Dynamite Baits Halibut Paste
Based on the supremely successful halibut range, this paste is the perfect complement to the already available ground bait, pellets, stick mixes and liquids which have all the ingredients you need to attract fish to your swim. The consistency of the product is uniform throughout, with no lumps or sloppy bits. It feels slightly oily to the touch and is a subtle brown in colour.
When kneaded between the fingers, the paste gives off the typical smell associated with the range, and quickly becomes easily malleable to allow the angler to mould it around the hook or chosen bait.
Scraping a good sized lump from the top of the container, I used it to enhance the scent of the hair rigged baits I was using by covering my boilies to make an enticing lump. It is simple to work around your chosen bait and, once it’s on, there is little chance of the paste flying off the hook on the cast, as it maintains its grip very well. If you need a softer paste for close in work, then the addition of a little water will allow the hook to pull straight through on the strike. I managed to lob a cast 50-60 yards without losing the paste.
I’ve been using Dynamite Baits Halibut Paste throughout October as temperatures continue to fall. I tested it in lake water to find out how long the paste took to breakdown and fall off the hook. As soon as it hit the water, tiny particles, scent and an oily slick were released into the water, which formed a highly visible slick in the immediate area of the hook. It took 45 minutes to breakdown completely, leaving the hook exposed, so you can be confident it will be there long enough for fish to find it!
Retailing from £3.50-£4.00, Dynamite Baits Halibut Paste is available from all good stockists and more information can be found at www.dynamitebaits.com
