    Default Best Boilies Of All Time

    These are my personal favourites and boilies I'm confident in having tried a vast amount over a long angling career:

    Dynamite Baits Robin Red
    Dynamite Baits The Crave
    Sticky Baits Bloodworm (I don't like The Krill at all)
    Rod Hutchinson Red Salmon and Krill
    Richworth Bioplex (sadly no longer available)
    Richworth Multiplex (ditto)
    Not a boilie but Bait Tech Super Halibut Marines were outstanding. Crying shame they no longer produce those 'red devils'.

    There is simply no such thing as best, only better IMO.
    Better on the day and better overall.

    But what do all the 'better' baits have in common?

    Answers on a post card please.

    As above. There isnt one.
    What works well on one water, might not work elsewhere.

    There IS such a thing as a better bait, it's called Dynamite Baits and the reason is very simple and very robust:
    THEY PUT BEST BEFORE DATES ON THEIR BAIT
    It is an absolute racket that others do not and I refuse to buy any more cr*p that is unlabelled and could for all I know be 20 years old
    The situation is not good enough
    Old protein, particle flours and eggs can be very toxic indeed and there have already been huge problems (which for obvious reasons you don't hear about in the angling press).
    nash now label apparently but Dynamite have taken the lead ages ago.
    They make great bait anyway, apparently their factory is phenomenal.

    I agree with your view on sell by dates.

    I'm not a boilie user but I was far from impressed with the latest batch of Dynamite Baits Marine pre-drilled hali pellets, as you can see they have been drilled so far off centre that they barely hold out for five minutes before splitting in a strong flow.

    I thought they were far drier than all my previous batches too and far less oily, they were a recent batch as they came in the new re-sealable bag which was intact when I bought them and no way imo that they could have dried out due to air getting in the packaging...

    They look ok to me except for the misaligned holes like you say
    Sometimes the surface of the pellet is dry, sometimes not, depends on the weather in my experience

    I've never had the slightest issue with any of their products anyway

    Take the time to send them back to Dynamite with a cover note is my advice,
    you may get a nice surprise

    Yes I agree, there is such a thing as a better bait as I said, but NOT best even with a best before date.

    The better baits are made with natural and real food ingredients, totally devoid of anything artificial. A little predigestion doesn't harm either, its a natural enzymatic process. Fresh and sterile isn't really what I look for.

    Limited shelf life?
    Well yeah, that's the downside to producing bait without freezing or artificial additives. Laguna also sell some bait that has a best before - 20 years from now!
    (and proud to say so)

    The probable cause of a misaligned hole is that of over heating and/or excessive pressure which causes the 'pin' that creates the hole in the hammer mill to move and distort out of alignment.

    Another way it can happen is if the 'mix' was too fluid and sagged as it was extruded.

    76 tons and a few days later, somebody might have noticed it Steve?

    I think I'll pass on your bait plug Laguna, as well as your sly digs at a large and very successful bait company
    It's not actually a good look to say you sell bait that's 20 years old either
    But at least you're honest
    I never trusted small firms and you only help to give them a bad name frankly

    As a very sceptical but dabbling angler in the respect of bait additives and who's used Laguna's products and who has absolutely nothing to gain by stating so...

    I can confirm that they have been excellent in as far as we all can tell and with a service to match.

    I couldn't see any sly dig, just an explanation as to what might have happened to cause the problem which I experienced with Dynamite Baits Marine Pellets.

    I always find that kind of information enlightening.
