This week we take a closer look at the extensive range of carp baits by DT Bait Developments.
DT have been producing baits for over 30 years and have an incredible track record for big fish captures.
Their current boilie ranges include Berry Bubble, Fish, Blood and Fresh Orange, Pukka Fish Mix Peach and Sour Cream, just to name a few.
All their current boilie ranges include matching pop ups, wafter hookbaits, hard hookbaits, pellets, stickmixes, bait sprays, dips and liquids.
In this review, we will be looking at the N-Blend, Supa Fruit and Cold Water Green Beast boilies and the complementing Cold Water Green Beast Pellets and DNA Liquid Food.
Cold Water Green Beast Boilies
I’ve heard of certain baits working well in the winter months but the Cold Water Green Beast boilies have been designed and tested to work all year round, but more specifically the colder winter months.
The Cold Water Green Beast boilies smell amazing with a combination of berries, creamy and milky favours and a slight hint of menthol.
In terms of ingredients, DT Baits have put together a set of key food sources which are highly soluble and digestible in cold water giving the bait a super effective edge.
If you take a regular boilie and a Cold Water Green Beast and put them in cold water you will see that the Cold Water Green Beast will break down significantly faster over 24 hours, giving off all the natural attraction and food signals for the carp to start feeding.
Like all the DT boilies I’ve used so far, the shelf lifes are hard enough to use with a throwing stick and soft enough to crumb up by hand which is what I look for in a boilie.

On first inspection you can strongly smell the various tiger nut blends, making it ideal for those waters with a ban on tigernuts.
The N-Blend Boilies work well with of course it’s matching DNA liquids but would be also super effective with a tiger nut extract liquid or even condensed milk.

Supa Fruit Boilies
On first inspection you get hints of fruits and sweet dairy flavours. The Supa Fruit boilies include high levels of milk proteins, and tiger nut meal.
The Supa Fruit boilies are designed to be super effective all year round but especially in the spring and autumn months.

Cold Water Green Beast Pellets
Including the awesome flavour combinations as the boilies, the Cold Water Green Beast Pellets have been specifically designed to break down over 12/24 hours in cold water.
As an angler that doesn’t use a lot of pellets in the winter due to there high oil levels I’m completely sold when it comes to these Cold Water Green Beast Pellets.
These pellets come in 4.5mm which are perfect for PVA mesh/solid bags and priced at a reasonable £3.99.

DNA Cold Water Green Beast Liquid
The DNA liquids are one of the most interesting products to the DT bait range and offer something a little different compared to a conventional carp liquid.
DNA is essentially a two part active liquid which means you will need to shake and combine the two different liquids together on use.
Whats the two liquids you ask, well the liquid includes a lighter floating component and a heavier sinking component.
When it’s used in a fishing situation you are creating a liquid attraction in all the water columns.
The DNA Cold Water Green Beast Liquid is perfect as a boilie glug, great for PVA bags as its 100% PVA friendly and super effective on any loose feed.
DT Baits have created a DNA liquid that matches every boilie they produce.
As you may of guessed it, this liquid includes the matching Green Beast Boilie flavour and a blend of several ultra-refined nut oils.

Due to time and weather restraints I have only used these baits on a few occasions but I will make sure to update this review throughout the year.
So far I’ve had carp up to 21lb in hard winter conditions so I can highly recommend you give DT baits a go if your looking for a new bait to use all year round.
We would like to thank DT Bait Developments for getting in contact and sending over some samples for this review.
