This bait product was a closely kept secret when the underdog South Africa national team used it to win four FIPSed World Championships in a row. The anglers who guarded the secret 'smokes' for years finally allowed Korda to distribute it for a UK launch back in 2012. Since then, the carp-fishing public has fallen in love with Kiana Carp's enigmatic Goo!
How Kiana Carp Goo Works
What’s the secret to its success? The Goo is a soak, glug and spod-mix additive, all in one. When most people first saw it, they assumed the Goo was just another liquid attractant. While the scent is effective, it’s the visuals that really appeal to fish.
The cloud of attraction that comes off bait treated with Goo has to be seen to be believed. This might be the most revolutionary aspect of it. Along with the feeding triggers and flavour combinations, Goo provokes a strong feeding response in carp, wherever they are in the water column. After Loutjie Louwies developed it, South Africa dominated in carp fishing. They even beat England in their own back yard at Liner Fisheries in the 2010 world championship!
Which Goo Bottle Should I Buy?
Flavours labelled ‘Power Smoke’ or just ‘Smoke’ give off an intense cloud. You don’t need to add a lot to send fish into a frenzy. These are better if you want to draw fish from every area of the swim.
Flavours labelled ‘Bait Smoke’ or ‘Supreme’ are slightly softer in colour and more watery than Power Smoke. They tend to have a more natural flavour, so you don’t have to worry about overdoing them. Choose a Bait Smoke if you want a Goo suitable for every situation.
How to Use Kiana Carp Goo
Goo is versatile, so you can let your imagination go wild. A lot of people just like to soak boilies, but you can also soak pellets, tiger nuts or PVA. You can even mix it with water to dampen groundbait and add a unique edge. You can even double up Supreme/Bait Smoke with Smoke/Power Smoke flavours.
Pinkberry: this is a Smoke variety, and although it has a mild fruity smell, it is actually deceptively potent. Like some of the other more recent Goos from Kiana, it has a milky, pastel colour, giving it a marshmallow-pink colouration. 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.
Ali Hamidi commented: “This will get you bites when the chips are down and it has an electric smell and taste to it, and it really is a unique blend.
“The great Rod Hutchinson always said that during the colder months you want something that can almost electrocute the carp into action, and the Pinkberry is definitely like that,” he added
Isotonic: 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!
During testing it has proven to be very effective at getting quick bites, even when fished over large beds of bait, and has also had a knack of picking out the bigger fish.
Ali Hamidi revealed: “Isotonic has been the one that we’ve used most whilst filming Monster Carp, and in my mind it is already one of the best ones ever.
“Even when fishing over big beds of bait, anywhere in the world, this will get you quick bites. Sometimes highly attractive liquids will get a quick bite but often off of the smaller fish on your spot, but using this one we have been catching the biggest fish in some of the lakes that we’ve fished, and it has really been a revelation.
“This really is one Goo that I would use 365 days of the year, absolutely anywhere that I go, and I’ve caught in a very wide range of water temperatures using it.”
Krill: 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 bait 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.
