Hopefully I will add to that list over the next few days. Done well on the hookbaits this year, but tomorrow night will be the 1st time with the herb, so fingers crossed. Will send you pics if I'm fortunate enough to catch

Yep I have never known a boilie turn peoples results around quite like the herb.
I wish I could share all of the images and emails from people who use it but you all get to see plenty of bigguns on our media. God knows how many U.K. 40s I have to post at the moment!

Nutriplex as the main bait in the winter but I'll mix in some herb to keep it going in all year round then when it warms up Herb as the main bait but continue to use nutriplex. Im guessi g herb and tricknut by the looks of things are more popular than the plex but believe me I've seen it take some water apart it's a top top bait

Thatís a hard call isnít it
Herb is totally dominant in summer and everyone thinks that nut baits are better in the winter but I donít believe that.
Nuts, oils, fats etc are better in summer
But Tricknut is a mixed bag like all of our baits, and contain birdfoods, milks, yeasts, soy etc to aid there digestible elements.
I think they all work well in cold if you use them in moderation!
Piling lots of protein rich boilies in during January donít really work for me!

I have one pop up, made with basemix, that Iíd take anywhere. Itís the Nutriplex matching 12mm pop up.
I then coat it in extra minamino (itís rolled into the pop up mix) and I leave them to soak for a week. Those little 12mm boring looking dull pop ups have caught me many big carp when bright hi viz fails.
But my lads rate the squids (fishmeal)
Or the deep c with real tuna fish inside (Iím doing well on these)

I change from lake to lake once I work out wether bright is best or match the hatch.
I do find it hard not to cast out sting yellow 12mm as they always seem to produce for me from late autumn through to late spring.

Is everyone planning on staying on her for the winter or switch to the nut?

Looking at the nut and herb with great interest. For a very long time I've used a Banoffee and a seafood. For the 1st time I'm thinking if moving from a seafood (DNA S7) to the Herb. Just wish I could get some of the original Sectet Agent as a dip. The nut..hmm..think I may have to take the plunge even though not my pref flavour. I've rolled my own on a old CC Moore nut base, like this one its coarse and can be awkward to roll at home, yes I could have ground some if the ingredients finer I suppose. Wondering if my days of home rolling are over and tbh there are a lot of good baits about now.

Will be keeping a eye on this thread.

Edit, think I got confused with the Nutriplex, not moving from a fishmeal then...I'm blaming the codeine

If i want a hookbait to use in December which one would you suggest? The water I'm fishing responds best to fishmeal based baits..Tia.

They will work fine buddy!
Real pepperami is only one ingredient of many and we all used to use pepperami in the colder months to good effect
They are proving really popular already and Iíll be sending them out from midweek onwards.
A tad excited about these and the other new one 😉

How do you think the p-rami wil fair in the colder months? I know next to nothing about bait but with real salami in it, wondered if the hard days would stay harder and leak out less when it's cold?

The most popular would be what you suggested
Sting pink, squids, deep c white.
Sometimes you have to be brave and try something far out like a p rami 😉😉
