Bait Factory Particles Hemp
Solely a hemp mix, a bait with a huge reputation for the capture of numerous and frequent big fish, but this time with a ‘The Bait Factory' boost.
Using our same six new flavours in the range, we have been able to produce ready to use hemp sourced from only the best suppliers, and then flavoured to maximise attraction. Why use ordinary hemp, when you can maximise its potential with added attractors and stimulants.
Try these superb tips to get the most from Bait Factory particles
Spodding particle is a key tactic for carpers but try adding some Bait Factory groundbait and even a splash of evaporated milk to the mix – it will cloud and hang in the water column pulling cruising fish that are milling around off the deck.
With Bait Factory particles, the flavours perfectly match the boilies and pellets, meaning when you're building a big bed of bait you can encourage fish to feed on tiny morsels that are a precise flavour match to your hookbaits. That's a real edge.
Hempseed is still a quite brilliant attractor for all species. Mix it with pellets for an ultimate carpet bait for carp, tench, bream and even barbel and chub. When fishing for river fish, you must use a bait dropper to lay the carpet down otherwise the particles will wash away and not get concentrated.
A good tip is to keep spodding particles regularly and build up a ‘dinner bell' effect. Match anglers feed little and often as fish become aware of bait entering the swim. The same can happen with bigger fish as they become aware of fresh bait and new food entering the lake or river. Activity prompts activity and far from being scared of spods, on some waters they actually sit underneath the splash waiting for a free meal.
When the fish are really on, use our Bait Factory particle range straight in the feeder and just cap each end with a skim of groundbait. The amount of food – cracked maize, groats, hemp etc – that is contained in one feederful will help you put down a carpet really quickly and satisfy shoal fish that can easily move into the next swim if they're not fed correctly.
It pays to mix and match when fishing multiple rod set ups especially on
new waters or when the weather is changeable. Try one rod on nothing
but particles. Introduce different sizes and blends such as Bait Factory
PartiMix, Spod Mix, Hemp and Micro Spod to the swim and then present a
small natural bait over the top of it – maybe a grain of maize. This
line of attack can often score as it attracts all species and encourages
a feeding frenzy.
Bait Factory Particles reviewed by Richard Lee
Particles make up a very important part of my angling attack every season – whether it's carp fishing, targeting big bream or tench, or even after chub, barbel and roach.
Make no mistake, fish love to browse and feed over particle and it can hold shoals in the swim for long periods. Even when they're a bit nervous, tiny morsels laid down as a carpet can get a fish's confidence up again and that can lead to a mistake being made with the hookbait… even on warm, clear sunny days when conditions are as tricky as it gets.
So, with this bait source crucial to my angling approach, I was absolutely delighted when I was asked to check out the new range from Bait Factory.
This is an innovative collection that is guaranteed to help you catch a stack of fish this season. You know when you look at a bait and realise it's going to score… that's what you get with this little lot. Put simply… it's ‘right!'
For starters, everything is available in the company's six signature flavours.
Apex – Fennel and Hemp.
Reef – Coconut Cream.
Storm – Tropical Fruit.
Arctic – Krill and Crab.
Infuse – Bio Bloodworm.
Aztec – Chilli Chocolate Orange.
I'm sure they'll all catch, but I'll be using Bio Bloodworm and the Tropical Fruit for my first session of the year after gravel pit tench.
There's a wide variety of actual particle styles to choose from. There's classics like hempseed, but also Parti Mix which is a blend of small seeds that are ideal for the fish to pick over.
Moving up in size, you can go for the Spod Particle collection comprising of hemp, whole maize, milky groats and wheat to name but a few. Or if you want a finer grade, choose Micro Spod mix, perfect if you're after smaller species or if you're unsure how heavily the carp are feeding but still want a carpet to stop them in their tracks.
The particles can be spodded, mixed with groundbait, put in a bait boat, or at short range fired out with a catty.
They come in distinctive oval shaped buckets that are ‘spod friendly' thanks to a lip on the container – use two bank sticks and butt rests to support it at waist height when piling the bait in – it certainly helps with the back pain.
Prices start from £9.49 for the 2.2k buckets up to £13.99 for the 3.5 kilo buckets – well worth checking out.
