I’ve been using an assortment of Quest shelf life and frozen baits since the company began. Despite the success I’ve had with the shelf life baits I still favour frozen baits over all.
However, as we all know one of the main problems with frozen baits is its deterioration during session fishing. When travelling to France you may expect there to be sufficient freezer space made available… but more often than not the freezer space soon fills, leaving bait unfrozen and unpreserved.
Well, I have found the answer…. vacuum packing!
For this I use an Andrew James Vacuum Sealer & it couldn’t be simpler to use.
Put the boilies in a vacuum bag & follow the instructions of the vacuum sealer unit, and voila, you have fully preserved boilies.
These can either then be frozen for an indefinite period or left unfrozen for at least a month plus. Because all the air has been extracted from the bag, the baits remain fully preserved.
I’ve also used the vacuum packing on tiger nuts, hemp, maize, and seed particle mix. The secret to vacuum packing particles is to rinse them thoroughly, drain as much water off as possible then vacuum pack. Any of these particles can be frozen for unlimited time and left unfrozen for at least a week.
Why not give it a try?
