After several years of absence we are excited to be able to say that the legendary ‘L030’ fish protein is reborn…..
Made famous in the early 2000s by top anglers and bait companies who recognised and capitalised on its incredible fish-attracting powers as a boilie ingredient, liquid food and bait soak, L030 (Marine Paste/Marine Amino Compound) quickly earned a reputation as one of the most successful liquids ever used in the production of carp and coarse fish baits.
Following EU-driven food industry legislation, this universally revered bait liquid had to be discontinued by the producer, after which the producers of L030 strived to supply its customers with a comparable alternative which could be processed within the rules laid down- an exercise which resulted in several false dawns that saw CC Moore receive and evaluate samples of liquids that just didn’t match up to the original product in terms of taste, aroma, solubility, viscosity or nutrient profile….. But in early 2015, that all changed and the huge void was filled by this outstanding new product.
Supplied by the producer of the original L030, this highly attractive, nutrient-rich liquid food is a soluble fish protein extract that is derived wholly from pure Tuna meat meaning it is not only comparable to the original L030 product in terms of salts, protein, amino acids etc. but it also boasts the phenomenal taste, aroma and omega oils associated with Tuna products that makes them so attractive.
Being hydrolysed and of pure fish origin, Tuna L030 has a deep, yeasty, fishy taste and aroma and a high salt content that represents another effective source of year round attraction for appetite-satisfying and nutrient-seeking fish (e.g. pre and post spawning and during periods of natural food depletion).
Tuna L030 has a protein content in excess of 50%, which, due to natural water content is extremely rare for liquid products, and supplies an abundance of all the essential amino acids required by carp and coarse fish.
Tuna L030 is made from pure tuna protein that is hydrolysed to increase its digestibility ensuring it’s highly soluble and easily utilised by fish in all water temperatures- a vital attribute which makes it so potent as a year round feeding stimulant.
Tuna L030 does not contain any added water, thinners, preservatives or other products that may reduce its concentration and potency; it is thick, dense, naturally preserved in its own salt content and, as you can tell by its protein content is 100% pure.
Moore means more….. Don’t settle for anything less!
Tuna L030 is 100% natural so cannot be overused in boilie mixes. In tests, we have actually used it with just a small amount of water (to reduce stickiness) as the sole liquid ingredients in hookbaits- replacing liquid egg with some binders in the dry mix to ensure sufficient binding and hardness. In boilie mixes we would suggest including as much as you can afford – the more you use, he greater the attraction.
Tuna L030 will of course work extremely well with fish meal baits and mixes but will also give bird food, nut and attractor baits an essential boost of protein and amino acids which they are so often lacking which will make them less desirable to the largest, most nutrient-requiring fish.
Due to its soluble content, Tuna L030 will soak into the outer layers of baits to which it is applied, and the longer you soak them, the more they will suck in. It is also superb as a rehydration liquid for soaking and boosting air dried or shelf life baits on foreign trips and using as the base for dips/soaks.
Tuna L030 blends perfectly with Feedstim XP at 50:50 to create an outstanding hookbait moistener that can then be over coated by dusting the baits with GLM, chilli powder, liver, betaine and other powdered additives.
Loose Feed Additive;
Being such a soluble attractant Tuna L030 doesn’t need to be ingested to significantly increase your catch rate and so makes an ideal loose feed additive. Adding it to stick mixes, bag mixes, pellets, particles and spod mixes will also help you attract more fish to your baited and the longer you apply it to your loose feed before using it, the longer it will leak out when you use it.
Tuna L030 is also very dense so will remain evident on the lake/river bed for a prolonged period, attracting feeding fish to investigate the area long after it may appear to have gone.
The thicker, drier and stodgier you make your loose feed mix, the closer to the baited area and lakebed the attractors will stay. For zig rig fishing and to attract fish down onto your bait from the mid and upper layers of the water, we recommend you mix Tuna L030 with Liquid Tuna Extract, Pure Salmon Oil, water or Feedstim XP. (Do not mix it with water when using in PVA bags/sticks.
Tuna L030 is a superb liquid for using in PVA bags and sticks as it is highly soluble so disperses quickly and easily in water but also has a relatively low oil content and high dry matter so still won’t melt PVA. Using straight Tuna L030 in PVA bags is a great edge for creating lots of attraction and no hard food around your hookbait (meaning fish are stimulated to feed quickly and will automatically home in on your hookbait in search of food) and combining it with Salmon Oil, Hemp Oil, Liquid Robin Red or Trout/Halibut Pellet Oil is a great way to carry the soluble food signals up through the layers of the water dragging fish down onto the taste/aroma source and your waiting hookbait.
We are quite certain that history is going to repeat itself; the original L030 was a simply outstanding fish attractant that was successfully used in many ways to increase the catch rates of specimen anglers everywhere …. But when seeing the results anglers achieved during the testing period of this liquid combined with the opinions of our bait and animal food experts, we are confident that Tuna L030 is going to be even more successful and become a huge edge for those using it.
