Candy Floss Up & Down Mix



Add to Basket

  • Candy Floss Up & Down Mix


The Up & Down Mix is made from a carefully-developed blend of active ingredients creating a column of attraction from lakebed to surface as tiny particles, flavour and attraction rise and fall throughout the entire water column. This enables you to attract the carps' attention and entice them to your hook bait no matter what level they're sitiing at (click on the link below to watch this unique bait in action).

Suitable for use in PVA bags or for balling in as a groundbait, the Up & Down Mix is extremely popular for zig rig fishing, creating a column of attraction directly around your hook bait in mid water without the need for repeated casting - a scenario that no other carp bait can create.

Containing the same flavour/attractor profile as the Candy Floss boilies, each bag is also supplied with 75ml of Big Shot liquid to further enhance the 'pulling power'. Mixed with this Big Shot liquid the mix will sink, but mix it with water and it'll float. Not only does this give you the ability to fine-tune the bait's buoyancy to suit any situation, but it's the closest thing you can get to fishing on the top, mid water and on the lakebed all at the same time.

What A Haul


In three and a half hours at Thorpe Lea fishery Darren Pearse and Dennis Roe landed 23 carp, 13 of them over 20lb.
Fishing with just one rod each, while other on the lake struggled, Darren and Dennis spodded our Up & Down Mix over the top of over-depth zig rigs with trimmed, 11mm Top Banana hook baits as well as spotting mixers soaked in our Hot Scottish Salmon Oil. Putting a few spoonful out after each fish kept the bites coming in what was a truly hectic few hours.
The biggest fish of the quick-hit, hauling session was a 26lb mirror.
Short On Time, Big On Results


Solar Tackle team member Thomas Mascha has landed a 33lb 8oz mirror and a 49lb 14oz common in just a few hours on a local water.
Having pre-baited an area with glugged Candy Floss boilies, Thomas set up for a day-only session during shifts at work.

Presenting a Candy Floss snowman hook bait over a scattering of glugged freebies, the French-based, big-carp expert landed the big mirror, followed less than two hours later by this impressive low forty common.

Just 2 Hours On The Bank


Fishing for just 2 hours before sunset before a night shift at work, team member Thomas Mascha has landed this 48lb mirror... yet another 40lb+ carp to add to his incredible big-fish tally so far this year.
Thomas fished a Candy Floss snowman hook bait on a local gravel pit over a handful of Candy Floss freebies in an area that he had prebated using the same baits.
Huge Brace For Thomas Mascha


While out fishing for a day-only session with his son, just before the end of the school holidays, Solar Tackle team member Thomas Mascha has landed a common of 44lb 8oz and a mirror of 33lb 4oz.
Tiger nuts and Candy Floss boilies soaked in Candy Floss Mega Big Shot liquid produced both fish.
Second Forty In Less Than A Month


Targeting a low-stock Danish pit, field tester Soren Poulsen has just landed his second 40lb+ mirror in under a month, a big fish by anyone’s standards, but even more so in Denmark.
Fishing an area of the lake he knows well, Soren baited an area with tiger nuts and 18mm Candy Floss boilies, and presented a matching Candy Floss snowman hook bait over the top.
During the first night a 21lb common graced his net, followed in the morning by a second common of 27lb 2oz. At around noon, he was in again, and this fish put up a huge fight. Finally, a big mirror slid into Soren’s waiting net and tipped the scales at 42lb.
The capture marks the end of a great season on this particular venue as he moves on to pastures new for the autumn.
Two Forties And A Big Grassy


A two-day session for Solar Tackle team member Thomas Mascha has seen him catch two 40lb+ mirrors, tipping the scales at 42lb 12oz and 48lb 2oz, shortly followed by a 37lb 10oz grass carp.

Despite cold conditions, Thomas pre-baited an area on a local target water in the weeks leading up to the session using Candy Floss boilies and a Candy Floss hook bait fished over a tight bed of freebies brought all three bites.

A Thirty, Two Forties And A Fifty In One Day!


Solar Tackle team member Thomas Mascha has rounded off his 2016 season in true style. The French-based angler who fishing predominantly short, day-only sessions has landed a low thirty, two forties and a fifty... all in one day!

Targeting a local gravel pit that he has pre-baited Thomas spend an hour spotting crushed and whole Candy Floss boilies out to the clear pre-baited area. All of the baits had been soaking overnight in Candy Floss Mega Big Shot Liquid.

Fishing a Candy Floss snowman hook bait over the area he landed mirrors of 33lb, 42lb, 48lb 6oz and 50lb all between dawn and dusk!

Dawn 'Til Dusk


It's cold out there, but team member Thomas Mascha is still enjoying action. Fishing on an area he'd probated with Candy Floss boilies and corn, Thomas presented two Candy Floss hook baits coupled with little PVA sticks.
Fishing from dawn 'til dusk, the day passed without so much as a touch until an hour before the French-based angler was due to pack up.
This 45lb 8oz common turned an unproductive day trip into a memorable one, but incredibly was followed 30 minutes later by this 49lb 4oz mirror as well!!
A Mid Forty In Mid Winter


This 45lb mirror has been landed by team member Thomas Mascha while using his favourite, Candy Floss baits. Thomas says:
"I flicked a Candy Floss pop-up presented with a size 4 Stronghold 101 hook to a clear area that I've caught from before on this venue. 
"I put a couple of spots of Candy Floss boilies over the top, which I'd soaked in matching Big Shot liquid and coated in Candy Floss Up & Down Mix. In the warmest part of this very cold day, the rod rattled off and this was the result."
Just Rewards For 'Braving' -8ÂșC!


"The temperatures were very cold, -8ºC, but I got the result I was after," says team member Thomas Mascha.

Despite the freezing conditions, French-based Solar Tackle team member hit the banks of a local venue for a day session. Fishing a spot he knows well using a 14mm Candy Floss pop-up and small PVA bag of crushed Candy Floss baits, this 47lb 14oz common rolled into our man's landing let in the early afternoon.

Frost on the ground, but a carp in the hands!


With frost on the ground and ice in the margins team member Thomas Mascha braved the cold and headed to a local gravel pit in northeast France.

In tough conditions, Thomas decided to present a Candy Floss pop-up coupled with a stock of matching Up & Down Mix and crushed Candy Floss boilies to a clear area in a deep part of the lake.
His efforts were rewarded with this 33lb 6oz common, which was (perhaps unsurprisingly) the only carp caught from the lake that day!

12 Months On Solar Baits


Young-gun Harry Bontoft says: “It’s been one year since I started using Solar baits, and I’m so happy with the results that I wanted to share them with you. Truth be told, most of my fishing was actually done from February to August last year, as my alarms and pod were stolen in late August, which stopped me from going for a little while. Also, going to university in September stopped me from fishing as often as I would have liked, but this makes the results I enjoyed even more special.
“During the past 12 months I’ve had a play around with different Solar products on many different venues and enjoyed great success, landing plenty of carp including a few over 30lb.
“In particular the Up & Down Mixes fished with zig rigs as well as mixers soaked in Hot Scottish Salmon Oil have both produced extremely well during the warmer weather.
“The plan is to get out on the bank more this year and, fingers crossed, the carp will come my way.”
Day Tripper


Team member Thomas Mascha hit the bank for a day session over the weekend and was rewarded with this 35lb mirror.
Targeting a public water near his home in northeast France, Thomas fished a Candy Floss snowman hook bait on a stiff rig with a size 4 Stronghold 101 hook over a bed of Candy Floss boilies and mico pellets, all soaked in Candy Floss Mega Big Shot liquid.
