Best Boilies? The Casual Carper Boilies Review

This week we take a closer look at the brand new boilie range by Casual Carper.

A relatively new bait range to hit the market, the Casual Carper baits are made by anglers for anglers which have been extensively tested on short and long carp fishing sessions.

In this review, we will be looking at the Casual Carper Spicy Krill boilies, White Chocolate & Orange boilies and both their matching pop up hookbaits.

Let’s get started…

Spiced Krill Boilies

These boilies have a strong spicy fish smell and after use they don’t seem to lose too much of the flavour after being out in the water for a few hours (and even over night).

The Spiced Krill boilies are an excellent balance of soft and hard. Soft enough to chop or crush up by hand but hard enough to use with a boilie stick and stay on the hair for a long period of time. The boilies are first-rate for catching carp but are also perfect as a catfish bait.

The Spiced Krill boilies work well in conjunction with most fish oils and other natural bait soaks. They are available in 12mm, 15mm and 18mm and come in a variety of different quantities depending on your needs. The come in handy resealable packaging, keeping the bait fresh smelling and doesn’t lose any attractants over time.

White Chocolate & Orange boilies

These boilies are a strong sweet fruity bait without having an artificial smell. The White Chocolate & Orange boilies are an ideal all year round bait.

Like the Spicy Krill boilies they are available in 12mm, 15mm and 18mm and come in a variety of different quantities depending on your needs. Like all the Casual Carper baits they come in handy resealable packaging, keeping in the flavours and attractants.

Pop ups

The Casual Carper matching pop ups are super buoyant as you would expect. The 12mm pops up I used work great in conjunction with a 15mm boilies to create a snowman presentation.

The matching pop ups come in 12mm, 15mm and also matching wafter hookbaits are available.

How I used the baits

I’ve used the Casual Carper boilie range for a few sessions now and I’ve had some great results. Mainly sticking to 2 combinations of hook baits; snowman rigs and boilie plastic corn rigs and caught on both.

For my lose feed I created a 50/50 mix of the spicy krill and white chocolate & orange 15mm boilies, soaking them in salmon oil and giving them a light dusting of a fishmeal groundbait to make them stand out. The pop ups were also presoaked in salmon oil for a few weeks.

The results

For the past few sessions I’ve had plenty of carp to 18lb and catfish to 22lb on the two hook bait combinations so I can confidently recommend you give these baits by Casual Carper a go on your next session.

Looking forward to trying out some of their other baits such as the Black Beetle Dumbbells and the Beta Stim Liquid in the future.

Best Boilie Range? The DT Baits Boilie Range Review

DT baits boilie rangeThis week we take a closer look at the extensive range of carp baits by DT Bait Developments.

DT have been producing baits for over 30 years and have an incredible track record for big fish captures.

Their current boilie ranges include Berry Bubble, Fish, Blood and Fresh Orange, Pukka Fish Mix Peach and Sour Cream, just to name a few.

All their current boilie ranges include matching pop ups, wafter hookbaits, hard hookbaits, pellets, stickmixes, bait sprays, dips and liquids.

In this review, we will be looking at the N-Blend, Supa Fruit and Cold Water Green Beast boilies and the complementing Cold Water Green Beast Pellets and DNA Liquid Food.

Cold Water Green Beast Boilies

I’ve heard of certain baits working well in the winter months but the Cold Water Green Beast boilies have been designed and tested to work all year round, but more specifically the colder winter months.

Cold Water Green Beast Boilies

The Cold Water Green Beast boilies smell amazing with a combination of berries, creamy and milky favours and a slight hint of menthol.

In terms of ingredients, DT Baits have put together a set of key food sources which are highly soluble and digestible in cold water giving the bait a super effective edge.

If you take a regular boilie and a Cold Water Green Beast and put them in cold water you will see that the Cold Water Green Beast will break down significantly faster over 24 hours, giving off all the natural attraction and food signals for the carp to start feeding.

cold water green beast boilies

Like all the DT boilies I’ve used so far, the shelf lifes are hard enough to use with a throwing stick and soft enough to crumb up by hand which is what I look for in a boilie.

You can buy the Cold Water Green Beast Boilies here.

N-Blend Boilies

On first inspection you can strongly smell the various tiger nut blends, making it ideal for those waters with a ban on tigernuts.

The N-Blend Boilies work well with of course it’s matching DNA liquids but would be also super effective with a tiger nut extract liquid or even condensed milk.

You can buy the N-Blend Boilies here.

Supa Fruit Boilies

Supa Fruit Boilies

On first inspection you get hints of fruits and sweet dairy flavours. The Supa Fruit boilies include high levels of milk proteins, and tiger nut meal.

The Supa Fruit boilies are designed to be super effective all year round but especially in the spring and autumn months.

You can buy the Supa Fruit Boilies here.

Cold Water Green Beast Pellets

Including the awesome flavour combinations as the boilies, the Cold Water Green Beast Pellets have been specifically designed to break down over 12/24 hours in cold water.

Cold Water Green Beast Pellets

As an angler that doesn’t use a lot of pellets in the winter due to there high oil levels I’m completely sold when it comes to these Cold Water Green Beast Pellets.

These pellets come in 4.5mm which are perfect for PVA mesh/solid bags and priced at a reasonable £3.99.

You can buy the Cold Water Green Beast Pellets here.

DNA Cold Water Green Beast Liquid

The DNA liquids are one of the most interesting products to the DT bait range and offer something a little different compared to a conventional carp liquid.

DNA is essentially a two part active liquid which means you will need to shake and combine the two different liquids together on use.

DNA Cold Water Green Beast Liquid

Whats the two liquids you ask, well the liquid includes a lighter floating component and a heavier sinking component.

When it’s used in a fishing situation you are creating a liquid attraction in all the water columns.

DNA Cold Water Green Beast Liquid on pellets

The DNA Cold Water Green Beast Liquid is perfect as a boilie glug, great for PVA bags as its 100% PVA friendly and super effective on any loose feed.

DT Baits have created a DNA liquid that matches every boilie they produce.

As you may of guessed it, this liquid includes the matching Green Beast Boilie flavour and a blend of several ultra-refined nut oils.

You can buy the DNA Cold Water Green Beast Liquid here.

Conclusion

Due to time and weather restraints I have only used these baits on a few occasions but I will make sure to update this review throughout the year.

So far I’ve had carp up to 21lb in hard winter conditions so I can highly recommend you give DT baits a go if your looking for a new bait to use all year round.
