Sometimes I use secret baits that I can't share with others. I couldn't remember in a thousand years what I've combined into a paste to catch carp.

Im same as Den I simply no longer have "secret baits" So what ever Im using anyones more than welcome to know.I rely believe (to an extent) that bait isnt that important.
I'm trying to cut back, but I have to agree with Budgie again
Bait matters, but it's usually such a small percentage of why someone is catching. If someone's doing well I won't be able to replicate that success simply by using the same bait as them.

My Gay radar warning system was going off with this Angler. I thought this angler probably sits all day with dellusions of grandeur.

Something tells me he wasn't baiting up unless thats bivvy boy slang for...
while the presenter says 'Some carp anglers hide their secret potions from others and will even mix it up in the bivvy so those with bino's can't see'
OH NO! Overactive imagination overload!!! Glug anyone???!!!

Whitebait are sea fish and so would be very unlikely to be picked up by perch. Indeed, I tried for a whole season without success to get a perch to take whitebait on another similar water. I caught plenty of chub and carp there too!
Neither of these waters contained pike, so they were no problem. They might be elsewhere, although few commercials (for which I particularly recommended whitebait) contain pike.
For more on whitebait for variety of species see this article of mine: http://www.anglersne...._for_chub.html
Interesting article steve. I can see the attraction of whitebait to Chub. I think chub are the cod of sea water that they will eat most food. A trotting white bait downstream is worth it for chub or prtch i think.
