19 Best Carp Bait Companies

There seems to be hundreds of carp bait companies, but which bait company should you use?

carp bait companies

Most tackle shops stock fishing bait from a handful of the top companies such as Dynamite Baits, CC Moore, Mainline, Nash and Sticky, but there are also some great independent businesses who make really good bait!

These can give you a great edge as most other anglers stick to what they know (which is also fine)

Let’s take a look!

Monster Particles bait Company


Primary Bait: Particles

Best Deal: 100kg Free Shipping Deals

Based in Staffordshire, Monster Particles are the UK’s biggest fishing particle supplier.

They stock everything from tiger nuts to liquids, hemp and spod mixes (which we like to use our bait boat for!)

They have a great stable of consultants which have been involved in bait development to make sure bait is of the highest quality – and that it works!

Nash are known for making great tackle, but their bait is also well received in the carp community.

From ranges such as ‘Scopex Squid’ and ‘Strawberry Crush’ there is a bait for everyone. Each range is usually made up of boilies, pop ups, groundbait, pellets and additives.

Sticky Baits Company

Bait-tech is now over 15 years old, and during that time they produced a constant supply of quality fishing bait.

In particular, they have had huge success in the match scene, especially in the 1990’s.

They also produce some colorful artificial baits, such as pop up corn.

Enterprise Tackle


Primary Bait: Carp & Coarse Fishing

If you fish with imitation baits, the chances that you have used one from Enterprise Tackle is high!

This is because they are leading manufacturer of imitation baits in the UK. If there is a bait that you use on your hook, Imitation Baits will have replicated it!

Baitworks Fishing Bait


Primary Bait: Carp Fishing

Another one of those car bait companies that prefers to sell direct to customers, rather than to the tackle shops, Baitworks is a relatively new business started in 2005 by Mark Bryant.

Because they ‘cut out the middleman’ every bait uses the highest quality ingredients.

If you haven’t used a Baitworks bait before, make sure you give them a try (especially the scent from hell pop ups!)

Kent Particles


Primary Bait: Carp Fishing

Most carp bait companies start off with one type of bait, and in the case of Kent Particles – you guessed it, they started with particles only!

However, after rapid expansion, they now make and sell freshly rolled boilies, pellets, pop ups, paste, liquids and even fishing tackle!

I use this company for their ‘bait in a bucket’ offers which usually work out at great value.

Urban Bait Carp Fishing

Another relatively new business, Urban Baits is one of the leading carp bait companies when it comes to sourcing and using quality ingredients.

The company has been running ‘underground’ for over 25 years, but is now firmly established for producing a range of baits such as boilies, hookbaits, pellets and additives.

DNA Carp Baits


Primary Bait: Carp Fishing

I enjoy using independant carp bait companies because its a change from the usual baits from the usual brands, and it can often give you quite an edge!

Like most carp anglers, quality is the number one factor, and DNA use fresh ingredients to produce a good range of boilies, both fresh and frozen.

They also stock a range of other baits to supplement these, such as liquids, pop ups and boosters.

Carp bait companies come and go, but not Mistral Baits!
