Bill's Top Twenty Products
We managed to get a few minutes of Bill Cottam's time recently and we convinced him that he should come up with his all time top twenty Nutrabaits products. here goes!
The market place is seemingly awash with every type of pellet imaginable, but our Trigga pellets are undoubtedly right up there amongst the best of them!
Available in both "mini" and "standard" sizes, they are absolutely bursting to the seams with the incomparable Trigga attractor package, which is no doubt why carp find them so irresistible.
Pellets simply do not get any better than this!
3D Shelf-life Ready-mades
If you are one of those anglers who thinks a ready-made is a ready-made is a ready-made, can I suggest you have look at our awesome 3D shelf-life Boilies!
Packed with numerous nutritional goodies including salmon protein meal, low fat oceanic proteins, yeast protein, dried seaweed, assorted crushed marine shells and liquid 3D, these baits really do take shelf-life boilies to a whole level, both nutritionally and in terms of their inherent crunch factor.
Specialist Bag Mix
The Specialist Bag Mix is one of the most underrated products in our range, hence the reason it has made it into our top twenty at number 18.
Including, amongst other things, crushed whole seed hemp, marine pellets, CSL pellets, crushed nuts, maize, Sluis CLO, mixed birdseeds and high level Betaine HC1, it represents much more than just a PVA bag filler..its is also ideal as a loose feed ground bait, a spod mix or for stuffing into the hoppers of remote boats.
Seriously special stuff in 1kg bags, 5kg buckets or 20kg bulk sacks.
In at number 17 we find one of the best flavours we have ever come across..the ever consistent and wonderful smelling, Salmon Elite.
This is the flavour we use to such good effect in both our BFM, Salmon, Caviar and Black Pepper ready-mades and the new Smoked Salmon Pro-match hookable pellets.
A true year round classic if ever there was one!
Pineapple & N-Butyric Pop Ups
Available in 12mm, 16mm and 20mm sizes, these perfectly formed alternative hookbait Pop Ups are a huge favourite with Nutrabaits users all over the world and have a habit of producing the goods on those days when all else fails.
For best results use with a few squirts of bait soak spray as either a critically balanced Pop Up or as the buoyant part of a snowman rig.
Our highly rated Caviar Under the Counter Special flavour has broken the British record on two occasions and is one of the most popular flavours in our range..it is ideal for inclusion in virtually any type of mix.
Use with total confidence either on its own at around 6ml per 500g of mix at 4ml with 10-12 drops of Black Pepper essential Oil.
Incidently, if you are looking to tweak either Trigga or Trigga Ice..then look no further. A few ml of Caviar will do the job superbly well!
Once spilt, never forgotten!
The evil smelling N-Butyric Acid has probably been responsible for more divorces than any other product in carp angling, yet it remains one of the most important additives around.
A standard addition to many big fish anglers bait recipes, N-Butyric Acid is best used either on it's own or in conjunction with any Nutrafruit flavour...Pineapple being particularly popular.
G-Force Freezer Baits
Straight in at number 13, we find the recently released G-Force freezer baits.
The G-Force has been put together specifically for today's more pressured venues and the revolutionary recipe represents a genuine step forward interms of attraction and inbuilt attraction...buy a bag today and discover for yourself that there is life after fish meals and birdfoods!
Tecni-Spice fan, Bri Skoyles
Rated by many of our field testers as the most instant of all our ready-mades, our bird food based Tecni-Spice boilies have firmly established themselves as one of the most popular baits in our range both for use at home and abroad.
Flavoured with a Sweet Nutraspice and Spice Cajouser combo, they also make a terrific high attract "change bait" for use alongside something like Trigga, Trigga Ice or 3D.
The ever-consistent Tecni's have also proved to be more than a little bit special for cold weather applications.
Part of many top anglers baits!
2ml Sweet Cajouser per 500g has been a permanent addition to many top anglers baits for more years than we care to remember and it remains one of the best selling Nutrabaits products around.
To get the best results from this stunning little appetite stimulator, use in conjunction with the suggested inclusion rate of any good quality fruit, cream or spice flavour or a low level essential oil.
Black Pepper Oil
Into the top ten now and we start with one of the best big carp pullers around, the awesome Black Pepper Essential Oil.
Distilled from a West Indian climbing plant, this really is amongst the best long term carp bait labels that your money can buy and it plays a big part in many Nutrabaits products including the BFM, Salmon, Caviar and Black Pepper Boilies, Pink Pepper Plus Ready-mades and Pink Pepper Pop Ups. If you are looking for a guaranteed winner of a smell to add to your bait..look no further!
What can we say. flavours simply do not get any better than this!
This is the most popular and nicest smelling of all our Nutrafruit flavours and one that is suited to practically any type of base mix; but having said that, it is its track record in our Big Fish Mix that really established Cranberry Nutrafruit as one of the greatest ever fruit flavours.
Use 4-5ml per 500g of mix and change your life!
Cream Cajouser Ready-mades
The ever-popular Cream Cajousers have been amongst the most popular baits in our ready-made range ever since they were first launched way back in the 90's.
These gorgeous smelling birdfood based baits include the optimum levels of Cream Cajouser, Multimino and Sweet Cajouser and come up with the goods throughout the year..infact they remain many of our fieldtesters number one cold weather choice.
Pink Pepper Pop Ups
If you are trying to be selective interms of the size of fish you are trying to catch, buy a pot of our Pink Pepper Alternative Pop Ups and find out for yourself that everything you have heard about these washed out pink wonder-baits in absolutely true..the number of the worlds biggest fish that have fallen to either Pink Pepper Pop Ups or snowman presentations incorporating them has to be seen to be believed!
Available in 12mm, 16mm or 20mm sizes.
Trigga Ice Freezer Baits
Available in a variety of sizes in 1 kg and 5kg bags, our Trigga Ice freezer baits are produced from pure base mix and 7ml per egg of Trigga Ice liquid...and their popularity is testimony to just how effective they are throughout the year.
If you are looking for aback up feed to use with them, look no further than Trigga Ice Pellets.
Along with the standard Trigga, Trigga Ice freezer baits must rate as one of the carp world's most effective long term food baits.
Ken with his trousers on!
Into the top five now and a naturally occurring product that is found in minute quantities in plants, yeasts, fungi and in the flesh of fish, crustaceans and molluscs..the stunningly effective Betaine HC1.
Betaine is odourless, practically tasteless and yet the difference its inclusion makes to any bait is practically immeasurable.
As long time fieldtester, Ken Townley, once said..."I would rather go fishing without my trousers than with a bait that didn't contain Betaine HC1!
Bill and a Trigga/GLM biggy
Green Lipped Mussel Extract
GLM is usually associated with inclusion in fishmeal based baits, but in truth its distinctive smell and taste can enhance almost any type of bait.
Rich in naturally occurring Betaine, it boasts a superb shell fish smell and one of the most distinctive tastes imaginable..buy carefully though, there are several different versions doing the rounds and effectiveness and purity varies enormously from one to another.
Use anything up to 10g per 500g of the pure stuff!
Dave Moore and Black Eye
Big Fish Mix
Our Big Fish Mix base mix is actually the brainchild of long time Nutrabaits fieldtester and prolific monster carp catcher Dave Moore.
Dave's blend of highly digestible fishmeals, top quality milk and whey proteins, kelp, Sluis CLO and Robin Red absolutely took the market by storm when the bait was first launched and to be perfectly honest little has changed since...BFM remains one of the best fish catchers around.
For best results use in conjunction with Salmon Oil, Nutramino, a hint of GLM and a low level Nutrabaits flavour.
What can we say...if there has ever been a more effective carp bait than Trigga, we have never come across it and with that in mind it is difficult to argue about its position in the top two in the Nutrabaits all time top twenty. Trigga base mix undoubtedly sets previously unobtainable levels of attraction, palatability and nutritional quality and has, we suspect, transformed several average anglers into household names!
A big fish puller extraordinaire!
Widely regarded as the worlds greatest ever ready-made boilies, many Trigga users actually rate these as being even more effective than home rolled versions of the same bait.
For that reason, coupled with the enormous number of kilos that we have sold over the years, they have rightly earned their place at the very top of of our top twenty list.
Available in 10mm, 15mm, 20mm and new 25mm sizes.
