The Target Baits Active Boost – AVT24 comes under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.


THERE’S a theory that if species such as carp or barbel eat something, they recognise if it is good for them and come back and eat it again.

Target Baits Active Boost – AVT24 adds real nutritional performance to your base mix.

Coming with a high nutritional value, it’s recommended that you add 20 g per kilo of base mix when making baits.

And in doing so you will help support the fish’s immune system, heal any wounds and repair any tissue for stronger, healthier fish.

It has been reported that on pressured waters, carp will actively seek out nutritional baits that offer a complete balanced, nutritional profile in their diet.

And long-term, the larger fish in a water will monopolise a bait that they recognize is benefiting them, pushing out the smaller fish.

Recently updated and rebranded, AVT24 is now available in resealable, black bags to help retain freshness.

You’ll find 5 and 15 kg tubs available, too, if you’re planning on making a lot of bait.
