Artificial Additives

Synthetic additives made to reproduce the taste of foods like strawberries and bananas are used in some additives. However, these are highly potent, so you must be careful with dosing as if you use too much, they may have the opposite of the desired effect, and the pungent smell could repel the fish.

It is best to take extra care if adding artificial flavours to ground bait and dilute the additive to spread the flavour evenly throughout the feed.

Natural additives

If you prefer natural, you’ll find a good selection of natural additives available, made with actual food infusions produced by processing fruit, fish, nuts, and other foodstuffs.

You can add natural additives to ground bait or drizzle it onto boilies, corn, or pellets. The liquid quickly soaks into the bait and releases plenty of attraction into the water to entice fish. Natural additives are not as intense as artificial flavourings, but it is still best to stick to the suggested dosage.

Many natural additives include high amounts of amino acids. These send a signal to a fish that edible supplies are present. Natural extracts are exceptional carp attractors.

Oil additives

Oil additives are sold in two types. The type you pick depends on how you intend to use it. You can buy a regular oil additive made from natural products such as seeds, nuts, fish, in the form of hemp oil, nutcracker oil. or salmon oil, for example. These contain substantial amounts of fatty acids and proteins. These oily flavourings are perfect for adding to ground baits. You can also inject them into dead baits or use them with a method mix, a dense, syrupy mix made of pellets, fishmeal, and maize or hemp mashed together.

The other type of oily additive is essential oils. These are very concentrated tinctures made with herbs and spices. These are most suitable for adding to homemade boilies or pastes, and due to their high concentration, should only be used drop by drop.
