Want to supercharge your hookbait? These Active Gels are built to leech real Carp-catching ingredients and attractors for over 30 minutes with just one quick dip. You can cast your hookbait to the horizon and the gel will stay on and get down to depth without coming off, whilst creating a huge disc of attraction and particles rising and falling in the water column. Each Active Gel is loaded with real ingredients too; they are not just a gimmick.

Zig fishing will take on new meaning with the Active Gels but they can be used on ANY hookbait to make it active. With just a small coating, each pot can give you well over 100 casts, as you dont need a lot on the hookbait for the effect!

Catalyst – Yeasts, Natural Sugars, Betaines – Matching boilies, hookbaits, liquids available here

125ml Pot.

    Look amazing,smell as expected, tested the products on a clean pebble in a bowl of cold out of the fridge water, and could instantly see the product working and continued to do so for over half and hour and was pleasantly surprised with how strong the fragrance was that was have off while it was working ( obviously you wouldn’t have the same strength of smell out in the open)

    great product and easy to use

    Used the smokey jack gel to glug the smokey jack wafters coupled with method feeder baited with…you guessed it, smokey jack method ready pellets to devastating effect on a local stillwater catching around 60lbs of chub, carp and bream in just 2 and a half hours in quite tricky weather conditions.
    Quite simply an awesome addition to an already fantastic and unique bait range. Keep up the good work Spotted Fin 🎣🎣👍👍

    The gels smell good, but when you wipe it on your bait it seems to just slip off it, so not confident it’s sticking to hookbait when in the water
