Here is the link to the topic mentioned by thebugbassman

I would not use it again. Tried once and was a waste of time. I could not get fresh rag worm at the time so I thought I would try it but not even a single bite.

It's certainly made my mind up. the only thing it's good for is flushing down the toilet

Read this post with interest as i purchased some of their products just before xmas as its sometimes hard to get the bait i want at short notice.
I must agree that their crab and shrimp baits haven't worked yet, did have a result with the black lug though. At present i couldn't say whether or not it works as i haven't given it a real good try yet, only time will tell!

THROW IT AWAY !!!

Believe me I have tested it out as my tackle shop gave me some for nothing (tells a story).
One evening when me and a mate were getting into a lot of fish I made the point of baiting up with the stuff (black lug) on one rod. Well guess what - nothing !! not even a crab nibble.
This stuff and similar other products are just a gimmick designed to take your dosh. Most new anglers sadly take the bait so to speak and learn the hard way. Experienced anglers wont even give it a second look.
If you cant buy fresh bait easily then stock up on frozen squid, macky, herring, blueys, sandeels and black lug. All handy last minute alternatives to fresh stuff.

You lads must know by now that a lot of stuff is designed to catch the angler and not fish, this applies to tackle as well as immitation bait.
