This was the phase that launched the Goo onto an eager carp world. It contains some Goos that have become absolute classic bait enhancers already! Here’s a rundown!
This is one of the most popular and effective Goos. It’s perfect as a hook bait glaze – especially when dried on and reapplied. Keep rolling, coating, rolling, coating and drying. Each layer will give you increased leakage time. Use the Supreme version to cut into the core of the bait and the Power Smoke to coat the outside of the bait, to give you that bonbon effect.
The Pineapple Power Smoke is brilliant when applied directly to PVA sticks. If you’re fishing a runs water and you want to get some attraction into the water quickly then coating sticks works well. You can use it on zigs. The South Africans actually dry this stuff onto their zig foam.
Much of the things that apply to the Pineapple Power Smoke also apply to the Tutti one will do too. The major differences would be things like pH. The Pineapple Power is acidic and has a real impact on various waters. It’s PVA friendly most of the year, but always remember to shake the bottle well to distribute the ingredients evenly. It’s best during the warmer months, when the weather gets up to 15 or 16 degrees, so spring and summer really.
This is an extremely natural, extremely sweet, yet subtle Goo. It’s classified as a Bait Smoke but doesn’t have the intensity of colour of some of the others. It’s not just restricted to use with hook baits, you can add it to ground baits, watered down, roll mixers in it or even glaze freebies with it. It lends itself brilliantly to zig spod mixes, it can be used in combinations on hook baits but I really do like to use it on my loose feed. Don’t put a whole bottle in, add a little bit and make a nice soupy syrup with some water in a bucket and add that to your particle mixture, or glaze your boilies with it, really enhancing what you’re doing, compared to the guy next door.
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…
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!
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.
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.
SPICY SQUID SUPREME
A pink coloured Squid based special blend of liquids with the consistency of our Pineapple supreme. The best use, however not exclusively, for this GOO is for soaking your hook baits in which will penetrate quite deeply into any flavour pop-ups or bottom baits or Particles and totally change your hook bait. A small squirt to coat some hook baits in a small tub and it will be absorbed. The more applications and time the deeper the penetration into the bait. Any hook bait can be used which will take on the Squid pink colour and flavour and “clone” it into a something really special. Very strong and distinctive which has been one of our very best Carp catchers in Europe over the last few years.
SPICY SQUID SMOKE
This is a very sweet and strong like our Almond pink power smoke. It also compliments the Squid supreme bait smoke. It has a much thicker consistency which can be used on PVA bags and also dried onto your hook baits as a two part process with the Squid Supreme bait smoke first. Both of these Squids give a pink cloud which although subtle seems to drive the carp wild. This has been used extensively over the last few years and the outstanding results speak for themselves.
TIGER NUT SMOKE
Now this Goo seems to be the most widely anticipated one of the series. We all know Tigernuts are simply amazing at catching carp. Natural progression dictated that we decided to make a Tigernut Goo. This Goo contains all the natural elements of tiger nuts. It has a middle-of-the-road consistency, just like Corn Twist and Mystic Spice, making a general-purpose and general-use Goo.
I’ve known for decades that berry flavours, mixed with citrus notes can be deadly. So, I was pleased to help Kiana with a scent and a direction for this one! This is based around a blend of berries that give a very rounded, intensely sweet liquid. The colour will colour your bait from dark pink, right through to the orange end of the spectrum, depending on the colour of the original bait.
It gives off a very subtle haze when in the water, which makes it perfect for use with stick mixes, bag mixes or of course, hook baits. Here’s a little edge for you: try it with Mangonana if you want a great combination of attractors!
This is the first white Goo. Just getting the white is a huge achievement – I can’t tell you how difficult this has been, because white dye doesn’t lend to being mixed. The significance of this development is that you get to keep your hook baits white, a vogue colour that is a proven carp catcher! Smell-wise, this is perhaps one of our riskier ones! It’s based on a blend that has been hugely successful in South Africa, the home of the Goo and has a unique medicinal warmth to it that the fish won’t have come across before!
Wonderberry is attractive in all conditions, and has been superb in filedtesting.
This is a special thin Goo with a unique flavour enhancement which again is a proven Carp catcher. Excellent for pre-soaking your hook baits, either tigers, popups or bottom baits. The cloud produced is subtle but distinctive and also great for use in cold water applications.
Kiana have added Buttercorn Supreme, Super Scopex Supreme, and Scopex Cream Smoke versions, offering a variety of flavours, colours and viscosity, and further enhancing the successful existing range.
Ali Hamidi is a massive fan of the Goo and uses it extensively in his own fishing, with some stunning results, and here he takes a look at exactly what is coming, and why he likes them so much!
Ali revealed: “The Buttercorn is one of the finest blends created to date by Kiana, and during testing has been nothing short of extraordinary, with carp, big and small, from across the globe.
“One taste will indicate that this isn’t your usual liquid attractor, as it is delightfully sweet and a potent fish attractor. It has been a wonderful hookbait soak, plus a great addition to stick, Method and bag mixes, and even as a light glaze over loosefeed.
“The colour is another plus for those who favour white hookbaits, or the washed-out look, as it leaves a mild haze around your bait. It is best applied a little at a time when dosing hookbaits, and then leave it to soak in. A great combo is 50:50 with the Tiger Nut Goo.
“The legendary Scopex needs no introduction, and was made famous decades ago by the legendary Rod Hutchinson, and now Kiana have created two new Goos with a twist on the great attractor, that has enhanced it even more.
“The Super Scopex Supreme is a wonderfully vibrant Goo, with a slight orange appearance, and it is perfect for drizzling onto hookbaits and letting it soak right through to the core.
“Scopex Cream Smoke carries the signature green haze that made the Goo world-famous, and is perfect for adding to Method feeders, zig foam, hookbaits, and similar, just before casting out, and once submerged it will leak off over a prolonged period of time, so is great for the short session angler.
This Supreme variety is quite unique in that it actually has very little colour to it, but during testing it has been incredibly effective.
It has a fruity, ester smell to it and is strong enough that it catches the back of your throat when you sniff it, and it is great for soaking into pop-ups and wafters, to basically create an Isotonic Goo ‘sponge’ which can be used in any water temperature!
OUTRAGEOUS ORANGE SMOKE
The viscosity of the Outrageous Orange Smoke makes it ideal for adding to PVA bags before they are cast out, or for painting on to hookbaits, allowing to dry, and then repeating the process, amongst other uses. This one will definitely be popular during the warmer months.
It is already a firm favourite with Monster Carp presenter Neil Spooner, amongst others, and he has been putting it to good use, catching carp both at home and abroad, ever since he first got hold of one of the sample bottles!
This is a name that needs no introduction as krill has been popular in carp fishing for a few years now.
Some anglers like to match attractors with the bTait that they use, and this has got a really fishy smell to it so will match up well with fishmeal baits – but can also be combined with sweet or fruity ones. It is a Supreme, so is perfect for soaking into hookbaits, and will penetrate right to the centre of them over time.
Kiana spend a lot of time developing the blends of ingredients which make up a Goo, and this one has unique smell and taste, which will generate quick bites. It has already proven to be very popular – and successful – for those who have field-tested it.
This is a Smoke variety, and it is a bright yellow colour, As well as being a popular choice with carp anglers, it will also find favour with those who fish matches or for other coarse species.
It is a Smoke, but isn’t a super-thick consistency so it will work well in colder water temperatures, below 16 degrees, as well as it will do in warmer ones.
It will work really well in PVA bags, or smeared onto the outside of your groundbait on a Hybrid feeder, and you won’t need to use a lot of it to make fish home in.
