The second batch of Goo included some variants that have become the most famous of them all. The two Almond Goos shot to prominence after the Underwater DVDs shot on St Johns and we all know how they've been getting on since! Here's a rundown of the rest of the range...
ALMOND SUPREME Nothing penetrates better than the Almond Supreme. It will cut into skinned tigers and is good on PVA sticks, but we’ve not found a better way than to use it on hook baits. When used in tandem with the thicker Almond Power Smoke, the two combine to create an attractor package that's unrivalled!
ALMOND POWER SMOKE The thicker of the two Almond Goos is perfect for coating hook baits. For best results, repeatedly coat and dry the hook baits to produce hook baits that pump out attraction for hours. Not only is the combination packed with potent attractors, it also produces baits that are a vivid pink colour.
MYSTIC SPICE This was one that Danny wanted to bring out. He’d been testing it on a farm lake in Cambridgeshire in the colder months and he found that the Mystic Spice would out-catch the Almond, proving once again that venue-to-venue, things can differ greatly. If you use it on PVA, then use it in really small amounts, say just on the knot of the stick; that’s how the South Africans have been using it. Ultimately, use it as a hook bait soak. It’s very thick and syrupy, so it will only cut into the hook bait by a few millimetres and leaving it in the sun will help with this process. If you’re looking for something a bit different, then this bunspice-type Goo might be just the thing.
STRAWBERRY KICK This is a really unique smelling one; it’s got a fruity taste, with a garlic twist and gives off a rusty colour once it’s in the water. It’s a great one to add to your zig foam just before casting out. Those of you who like a red hook bait will appreciate this one.
CARAMEL CLOUD This is a firm favourite of Tom Dove’s. It’s a great fish catcher on lakes with a large stock of fish but also really good for pressured, big carp. It dries really well onto the surface of hook baits, hence why we brought the Caramel Supreme out; we wanted the two to complement each other. It’s good on solid bags and it’s really sweet, so carp absolutely love this one. My main recommendation would be to get it dried onto your hook baits.
HALIBUT HAZE Halibut is just an awesome fish-catching attractor and the Halibut Haze Goo is no different. It’s a fishy flavour with a slight fruity twist. Some of the flavours included give it that slight angle, that slight difference. It’s very thick, so it sticks brilliantly to the outside of baits. By the summer months you really will kick arse on it and it’s one that both carp and barbel anglers will love. It’s great dried onto hook baits and on bags, and don’t be afraid to combine it with a fruity flavour or something else.
