The only one Iíve used is the wonderberry one and itís been brilliant in winter, just a light coating on some ib or diamond white pop ups and left to soak for a week, they have caught me a lot of fish in winter, donít know if it makes a difference but definitely gives me confidence when I have a single hookbait out

If want goo popups use proper job pop ups donít matter how much you soak they still pop up even the 11mms and they donít go soft.

I've gooed 2 different mainline pop ups pink squid and hybrid both fluro with the mangonana. The pink ones took on a lot of the goo and literally made them more of a wafter and the hybrid ones seem to take on less and stayed hard and buoyant. Had success on both. 7 fish in 9 nights on a water I fished regular with the odd bite, but since a little goo infused my catch rate was better. But again I've found the fish and fished for them. But So far so good I've ordered the almond supreme.

I don't think you can overdo it unless it stops soaking the liquid in. The ideal is to keep going until it has penetrated all the way through. I've used goo in the past and the thing I like is that you can take a standard basic pop up (or make your own) and change it into something completely different and unique in terms of colour and flavour.

I havenít noticed a difference on bottom baits, but I have seen the difference with floaters when applied to the hookbait. It didnít seem to attract any more fish to the floater, but it seemed to reduce the number that turned away at the last minute.

I've recently been using Cell Wafters, and find I have a job getting them to actually "waft".... they want to pop up even with a size 4 attached lol!
Been using a coconut spray (its really thick so more of a glug) give em a few squirts and a shake, let 'em dry out, and then spray some more.
They now waft.
And the smell is awesome.

I think that may be the thing Yonny. On certain waters if you happen to stumble upon the right flavour mix and something maybe they haven't seen much of then it could well be the edge. However I guess like all baits, on some waters it will make no difference at all.

I would have agreed with you a few years ago mate but on one water my mate was absolutely destroying it on goo'd up baits. I shamelessly copied him (who wouldn't lol) and had similar results. Catch rate went through the roof. Not sure what it was that did it - colour or pH change I suspect. There was something in it on that water 100% without doubt.

I have never actually used the stuff and don't know anyone who does so can't really comment apart from i personally think it is one of the things in modern carp fishing that catches more anglers than fish.

Thanks very much guys, appreciate the comments. Yes I can see that it won't be a big miracle bait but having watched some underwater vids it did seem to make a difference on occasion. I suspect like most lakes it may better on some but poor on others do to fish preferences. The way I'm looking at it is if it helps to add extra flavour into the water then it can't ever be a bad thing I guess..especially on high pressure waters

Will let you know how I get on!

In all honesty it depends on the pop up I am starting with and how I intend to use it.

When I experimented with the goos I was using essential b5 pop ups. They are not very buoyant even before they are glugged. So for heavy rigs I always cork inserted them. For this reason I wasnít too worried about over doing the goo and making them lose buoyancy. So I gave them several coats and when I cut the bait in half it had penetrated almost right through.

One negative of this was that I found weirdly it made b5 pop ups go soft. So I was then paranoid about giving them a big chuck, so I gooíd up another batch only giving them three light coats. I put these in a separate tub for big chucks.

Having used them for a couple of seasons I concluded in the end it made no noticeable difference in my winter catch rates, so I wonít be buying anymore.

I use a couple of them on certain baits (not all my baits are gooíed)

I do it once leave it till itís dried and then do it again, thatís it for me you can always break a bait in half in a couple of weeks and see how fair itís soaked in. Tbh donít expect miracles tho yes goo is good and I use it to make up my own flavours which is some of my favourite hookbaits but I donít get no more bites on my bait with goo on than non goo.

Hi all, hope you're well.

I have punted for some Goo having been pulled into it by the Korda team.😄

I have the Supremes and have just this moment covered them (not too much) and wanted to see how long you tend to wait until you re-cover again and leave to dry once again. Also how many times you tend to do this before stopping.

I have heard certain YouTube users who repeat the cycle 3 times but interested to see if anyone will agree or disagree with this.

I have covered the Manilla Sticky, Strawberry mainline & Bloodworm Sticky.

Thanks for your advice all!
