On the korda videos they recommend soaking hook baits in goo for weeks before using them. They say to add a bit to cover them and add more when its soaked in

I think the words " soak them for weeks " gives you the answer.

Sorry to butt in but it's Sharon, Pete's other half. Not necessarily, Pete used some at a fishery with @sly. They had been soaking only 2 weeks and he caught a couple of very nice carp.

Hi there, it's Pete's other half , Sharon. The goo will last for months. Pete still has some that were soaked 4 or 5 months ago and he's still catching on them.

Correct and well done. When soaking boilies first contact coats the outside and will leak off quite quickly but continuous soaking over weeks or even months or years will only allow the flavour to penetrate deeper. I have some special baits that l soak for 6 months before I use them, and l soak enough to last the other 6 months. So yes keep soaking, you can add a few after using a few for a constant supply.

A legend?...or is that a leg-end? :giggle:

Some goo's will change the colour of the boilies, just be aware of that. If you're using a bright orange for example, and use the vanilla goo, your boilies will go a very pale orange. Using the Bumbleberry will turn them almost purple. You can also mix 2 or 3 goo's together to mix and match the flavours of the boilies you're using. Goo'd baits will last for months but put them in an air-tight tub, I use those from a Pound-shop that have those click and clip type lids.

Hope this helps you. :upthumb:

If the boilies are to be soaked in Goo for a long time to let the flavour penetrate (and change colour) then does that not mean it's a bit pointless spending more than is needed on the boilie?
It's original flavour and if colour changed is irrelevant if you start altering it. (Which kind of defeats the point of why it was originally made that way)
