The Hook Bait Team.
It was a good start to the 2016 river season for Hook Bait Co. customers and team members.
First up was Grazy with a fin perfect 11lb 10oz river Dove barbel, a new PB taken at 5am on the 16th on a 14mm Spicy Fish Pro dumbell.
Next we have Hook Bait Co, regular Bob Beal who welcomed the new season in on the tidal Trent but events and nearby anglers conspired against him so he headed for a quieter spot and managed his first barbel a 9lb 9oz beauty.
Bobs favorite bait is the Amino Crustacean and it didn’t let him down with this 8lb 1oz bar of Trent gold winning him this months prize of a kilo of the Amino Crustacean and matching glug, well done Bob!!
The chub like the Amino Crustacean too and 15 chub to 4lb 2oz came to the net in the same session!!
Finally we have Hook Bait Co. team member Lewis Gaukrodger who’s working with owner Darren McCann and developing a new bait. Lewis had this tidal Trent barbel in the opening week of the season and is confidently sticking solely with the new bait.

The Hook Bait Team.
The companies new range of pike and predator products are producing the goods during testing with team member Jon Preen banking fish of 28lb 8oz and 25lb 9oz from a Midlands still water, both fish being the largest 2 ‘crocs’ to have come out of the venue in years.
These products offer the predator fishermen something very unique and different to what is currently on the market and will be available to the public in the coming weeks.
The highly anticipated ‘Barbel 5’ range is now available to the public. A bait that has proven to be a tremendous success in testing over the last 12 months putting no fewer then 9 Barbel over 14lb on the bank from rivers up and down the country.
We are now dealing with a new courier service that is still giving us fantastic and reliable deliveries but at a reduced rate, therefore we are passing these saving onto our customer base to enable you to purchase from us online cheaper then ever before.
HOOK BAIT COMPANY NEWS
We are currently developing 2 new flavours that we are very confident in and if tests are as successful as we anticipate them to be then they will be available at some point in 2014.
We are also tweaking and making improvements to our pike and predator range and hope to have this range on general sale as soon as possible.
Darren recently took this photograph of his hook bait glugged in Stimanol that is available from our ‘Naturals Range’
Stimanol is a pure fish extract which is high in amino acids and stimulatory proteins which we have combined together with a natural sweetener to give a really good rounded profile that is easily digestible. We highly recommend this as an additive in any fish meal mix with a suggested inclusion rate of between 20 – 30 ml. per 6 eggs, and it is even better when used as a glug for hook baits which draw in the goodness and removes the water content from your boilie making them harder and impervious to smaller fish. This product is 100% water soluble and is pva friendly.
You can purchase Stimanol and all our other ‘Naturals’ here: https://www.hookbaits.com/?page_id=453
