i think thats an acceptable level-though i,d deffo use a thinner oil and at about 10-12ml per kg, simply as the mix has -heat treated soya within which retains 20% oil in its treatment.

Fairly high oil in that mix, I wouldn't use it but if I had to I would at least tweak it and pop an emulsifier in there.

I asked peter this and he said that hes used it through the winter months an caught more than his fair share of fish so the answerr is yes its ok.

That will be for half a kg then I am guessing? still an issue, especially as alot of it will be denatured by boiling

Lots of reasons why it could have caught more, and lots of other ingredients that could be the reason for it catching well

But well done all the same

Definitely mate, can't wait to give it a try and roll my own baits.

I'll probably have a little play around with attractors etc in small batches.

It looks like a good basemix to get started with there is always scope for the odd tweak with the more I learn I suppose.

Cheers for your help

@SamBarley, Yes mate, you are quite right to point that out. I Should have seen that myself. I agree if you take out the Selenavite E, there is not really anything you can replace that whole Vit/Min content with.

@gav1986, I messed around with BM1 and BM2 at the end of last year/beginning of this year, and settled on using the base mix as it is, but with CSL and Molasses as attractor liquids. I did start to add things like Betaine and Robin Red, but in the end i stopped playing around with them, so i could concentrate on the mixes i was putting together for myself.

I'd have to check but i think i settled on BM1 base mix, With CLO instead of Nectarblend, CSL, Molasses MSG and a few drops of Butyric acid. Don't discount BM2 though. I found it to be a cheaper alternative to BM1, and quite liked it once i sorted out a hardness problem.

Both are very good base mixes. Alot of peope owe Smurf a big

I won't be taking it out now I've realised what it does.

Nellieman - what attractors have you used with the basemix.

Yes i understand that. But if he is swapping it out, why not use something else that may replace some of the vits and mins hes using.

Yes, to take the Selenavite out leaves a big hole in the vit min content, but he asked what he could swap it for.


I wasn't comparing anything.
