The original Hybrid bait recipe was formulated as a bait for both carp and cats. We increased the protein level with extra fishmeals and soluble fish proteins, increased the levels of fresh salmon oil and added a secret component that is particularly attractive to catfish: this formulation makes the Oily Hybrid, a bait that is designed specifically for catfish. Not only do catfish go mad for the ‘smell’ of the flavour and attractants in this bait but from a nutritional point of view the Oily Hybrids are perfect for catfish. Once they get a taste for this bait they will actively search them out. Oily Hybrids have a cooked outer (like boilies) and a soft paste centre. The paste centre releases attractants and flavours as soon as it lands in water and the hard, resistant outer protects this highly attractive bait from small fish activity. The exposed ends of the Oily hybrids ensure immediate release of the flavours and attractants in the paste centre.
Of course, carp also love the Oily Hybrids. The higher protein and oil content in the Oily Hybrids make this a fantastic bait for carp once the water temperature rises. They are excellent for carp once the water warms up, especially on short sessions when the strong release of oils and attractants from the Oily Hybrids will draw the carp in from a long way. For the rest of the year the classic Hybrids, the RH Hybrids and the Rapido Hot boilie range are the ideal choice if you are targeting carp.
