I don’t use man made flavours either Carpmaster, I prefer to use additives that give off food signals, and investigation triggers.

As you probably know fish don’t smell like us, as smell is attributed to scent in the air.

fish use olfaction, the reason most flavours work is because they are either acidic or alkaline and therefore detectable by the fish and are considered investigation triggers.

i like additives like belachan and fish sauce, so not concerned about them staying fresh as they are pretty rotten to start with as they are partially decomposed already.

😀😀I know of some lakes that happen to have crayfish in do you cook em first or kill an scoop out the meat ???

 

 First catch your crayfish.  I usually put some collapsible prawn traps out when I pre bait for several days before fishing (fallen branches in shallow water is favourite location). When I use them in ground bait I just mash them up as they are. For hookbait I use the meat of a freshly killed one. Don't try and use them as livebait. They make a mess of your rig 😀. At all times, check regulations for where you are fishing. The fines in France are quite eye watering if you are caught breaking them.

 

To be honest, these days I much prefer to take them home and cook them. I make a fabulous crayfish bisque.  (recipe available if anyone is interested)
