First and foremost, it’s a bait that we are incredibly proud of and has exceeded all of our expectations in every possible way…….. A bait that had our small team of testers literally wetting themselves with excitement and begging for more, as their catch results went off the scale whilst testing it! For us, it’s a bait that could give you that all important edge we believe you look for when fished along side similar baits …….It’s a bait with ‘poke’ that’s for sure! We developed a mix that contains a variety of different sized food particles and textures, whilst remaining firm but retaining a moist feel. Add to this our specially sourced coconut and peanut flavours, sweeteners, palatants and powdered attractors and we were half way there.
We can’t put enough emphasis on what this bait offers in the way of attraction. We had been testing a liquid feed stimulant within a prototype high attract/hook bait over the winter and spring period prior to the PokerNut launch. Its performance when matched against baits not containing the additive was truly remarkable. When adding a small amount to a dip or bait soak the results were mental! This additive combined with the other liquid and powdered attractors has for us, produced the ‘DREAM-TEAM’ of attraction we had been looking for.
We also have given careful consideration to the nutritional profiling, ensuring exceptional digestibility and food value. Taking a slightly different approach, we have used a variety of other products that gives us, what we believe to be a perfectly balanced all year round H.N.V food source.
Here is a brief technical insight into some of the ingredients that make the PokerNut ‘Stand Out’ from the crowd….
An ingredient that has been long coveted by the bait industry and kept under wraps for that very reason. Much talked about within the forums and chats by the independent and respected bait buffs out there, you will find it included in some of the most devastatingly successful base mixes ever released.
It is a highly concentrated yeast culture made exclusively by the supplier we source it from, and is put through several special processes to give its own unique properties. These processes create a product that consists of complete amino acid groups and the maximum amount of metabolic products, iso acids and enzymes. It is designed to boost the immune system, promote growth and gives exceptional digestion. Widely used as the number one yeast feedstuff supplement in the aquatic, livestock and pet food industry to promote a high food intake.
With a protein content of over 46% and being 80% to 90% water soluble, its strong natural attraction properties are second to none. We have included this at the maximum recommended inclusion rate, such is our confidence in this additive.
‘Sense Stim’ (liquid stimulant):
We cannot praise this ingredient enough! A concentrated high strength liquid feeding trigger, from the stable of ‘next generation’ appetite stimulants within the fish farming industry. Designed to promote increased food in-take, so as to give better growth rates for fish breeders. Being a liquid it gives excellent dispersion and leak off from within the bait. As mentioned in the previous text, we have secretly used this to HUGE success whilst developing a prototype hook bait.
‘M.R.P’ (The Real Poke in PokerNut):
Last, but not least, the ingredient that gives this bait the “welly”. We shall affectionately refer to it as M.R.P ….Well what can we say about this one? It’s blown our minds in how affective this product seems to make the liquids and bait we have put it into. Its history traces back to ancient times and has been used to give both animals and humans increased energy and vitality, stimulating nerve cells and metabolism, giving an overall sense of well-being.
And it’s not difficult to see why! It offers a unique nutritional profile as a complete protein that provides 19 amino acids, bursting with the carp attracting L aminos such as L lysine and L glutamine, whilst containing 4 different stimulatory alkaloids and 20 different essential fatty acids. Add to this an abundance of calcium and vitamins including B2, B3, B6 and C.
‘The POKERNUT’ is a bait that stands shoulder to shoulder with the best of what the bait industry has to offer and has become the ‘Number One’ bait choice for thousands of our customers.
