Munch Baits Pineapple Seed

Munch Baits Pineapple Seed Review

What’s So Great About the Pineapple Seed Range from Munch Baits?

The Pineapple Seed Range from Munch Baits has many different aspects that, when combined, create a powerhouse of attraction that carp can’t seem to resist. Not only is it visually appealing, but the carp also love the flavour. Once they find it, they stick around until it is gone. I like that Munch Baits produces Boilies, Popups, Syrup and Stick Mix in the Pineapple Seed Lineup.

I have used this bait for over a year and watched carp feed for hours on my underwater camera. Below I shall detail how to use this bait effectively and what I’ve observed and learned in hopes of aiding others who wish to test this bait out for themselves.

Pineapple Seed Boilies

I find the boilies from Munch Baits to be some of the best quality carp baits on the market today. I am always impressed just how soft they are straight out of the bag; it’s hard to believe they are a shelf life boilie. They crush between the fingers very easily and almost feel as though they are still moist, a quality which most other shelf-life boilies lack. I believe this is due to the high-quality ingredients Munch Baits uses.

Packaging – The seal on the older bags from Munch Baits used to fail most of the time. I’m happy to report they have come out with new packaging that is thicker and better quality, which keeps baits in excellent condition for a longer duration when resealing.

Pineapple Seed Pop-Ups

With most baits I use from other companies, I find the pop-ups are almost identical to the boilies aside from the fact that they float. This is where the Munch Baits Pop-ups vary slightly from their competitors.

Buoyancy – Super Buoyant – I’ve left these pop-ups in my underwater test tank for 24 days, and they were still as buoyant as they were out of the container.

Overall the Pineapple Seed Pop-Ups perform flawlessly. They have an almost solid spongy texture that holds together when pierced with a baiting needle. I’ve used other pop-ups that have crumbled and cracked in the past, but there is no issue with this range. Another great aspect of this texture is absorbing and holding liquids and flavours very well while remaining super buoyant. For those of you that like to boost your hook baits, you must try these.

Pineapple Seed Stick Mix

As I noted in my Pineapple Seed Bait Review, the stick mix was a little dry but still performed very well out of the bag. The Pineapple Seed Stick Mix is much drier than the Sweet Stim, almost powdery. It packs down very well, and I noted it packed so tightly that it would jam in smaller PVA tubes when plunged. Note: If you plan on using this stick mix, add a little bit at a time before plunging. If a lot is added to the tube, it will clog and be a pain to get out.

  • Packaging – The Pineapple Seed Stick Mix has always come in a high-quality package for as long as I’ve used it. I see now that Munch Baits is now using the same packaging for its boilies.

The Pineapple Seed Stick Mix has two different properties that I find highly appealing. Not only does it provide a yellow plume of attraction around your bait and up into the water column, but it also wafts out onto the bottom substrate around your bait, leaving a trail of attraction in the silt and sand for hours after your bait is gone. Not only does it have the great smelling powder but also hempseed particles mixed in as well.

Pineapple Seed Syrup

This was a product I didn’t intend to use as I’m not usually a big fan of liquids. I ordered some to see how it reacted underwater, and I am glad I did. This is now a staple in my bait bag on the bank. Not only do I use it to boost the pineapple seed range, but I also use it for particles and pack baits as well. It has the same sweet and fruity smell as the rest of the pineapple seed lineup and pairs perfectly when used in unison with the stick mix and boilies. Munch Baits has hit the nail on the head with these lineups.

This is a very dense and oily liquid, perfect for use with PVA products and offerings. I use the syrup to add the pineapple seed flavour to corn and other particles that I pre-bait large areas with. This will get the wild carp we target here in Canada to feed safely on the flavour. Once the fish are confidently feeding, I will begin introducing boilies (both whole and chopped) into the mix. These tactics have produced quick bites once the popup hook baits are introduced on the days I fish these swims.

Pineapple Seed Bait Range – Tank Test Review

If you’re looking for more information on the Pineapple Seed range from Munch Baits and wondering just exactly how it performs underwater, check out this YouTube video where we drop it into the test tank.

Not only will it show you how it reacts underwater but hopefully get your brain working on how you can implement it in your carp fishing sessions.

Tips to Gain the Most Attraction from the Pineapple Seed Range

Don’t be afraid to mix and match with other baits. Pineapple Seed pairs perfectly with the Cream Seed or Sweet Stim ranges from Munch Baits. The scents are quite similar, but visually Pineapple Seed will stand out more than Cream Seed.

  1. Chop Boilies – I like to chop my boilies rather than throw them in whole; I’ve noticed it takes carp a lot longer to clear them off the bottom when prebaiting an area.
  2. Add Stick Mix to Boilies – If you chop the boiles then put them back in the bag, another quick tip to add more attraction is to mix in a few handfuls of the stick mix. The stick mix will add a nice cloud of flavour around your bait as well as sink into the silt and sand to keep fish coming back even when all the free boilies are gone.
  3. Add Stick Mix and Syrup to Boilies – To ensure the stick mix stays on the boilies until it reaches the bottom. A quick trick in deeper water is adding a couple of glugs of Pineapple Seed Syrup to the bag. This will cause the stick mix to adhere to the boilies and not wash off as quickly in the water column as it descends.
  4. Add Bread to the Mix – This was a game-changer for me. I just happened to have a tin of breadcrumbs with me one session. When I added them to the mix, not only did it make my Pineapple Seed mix last longer, but it also added another level of attraction. The breadcrumbs absorb some of the Pineapple Seed syrup and slowly release the attraction into the water column instead of it all leeching out at once.
  5. Add Additional Particles – Aside from just breadcrumbs, don’t be afraid to add corn, hemp, tiger nuts or other particles to your sweet stim mix. The additional particles will absorb the flavour from the stick mix and syrup and quickly change the fish’s feeding habits to become accustomed to eating all sorts of different baits.

Overall the Pineapple Seed Range is a solid year-round bait choice for Canadian waters. Pineapple flavour and colours have always outproduced others for as long as I’ve targeted carp. So I am very pleased to see Munch Baits come out with the Pineapple Seed range for Canadian Anglers.
