We’re huge fans of plastic imitation baits here at Angling Gazette HQ. I’ve always got a few pouches of plastic casters and corn in my tackle box, regardless of whether I’m fishing lake or river. They’ve especially proved useful when nuisance species are around and if you’re ever fishing a river for barbel or chub and getting plagued by minnows, switch to a plastic hookbait and wait for your rod to bend.
Enterprise Tackle, have recently introduced a new product into their already established range, which has had fantastic results during field testing. Their imitation buoyant Chic Peas look every bit as good as their other plastic baits and they’ve backed up just how good they are with a stunning 45lb common, caught by field tester Ashley Hymus.
Being a buoyant bait, these particle imitations can be fished either as a pop up or on a critically balanced rig and enterprise have a couple of rig suggestions on their website HERE. They come in packs of 10 and retail at around £2.30 from your local retailer or direct from Enterprise themselves.
ET boss Chris Hornsby told us “Carp anglers are constantly looking for that crucial edge to improve catch-rates and here at Enterprise Tackle we always work hard to provide it.”
“We’re delighted with the new chick peas. They not only look great, in trials they proved an immediate success.
“We recommend fishing them either popped-up or critically balanced over a bed of particles.”
As you’d expect from Enterprise, the product is extremely realistic and should fool even the most wary of carp. For those of you that love your particles, these should prove to be a low cost and effective weapon in your carp fishing armoury.
