Hi guys I could really do with some help. I am going on a 48 hr session next week and would like some ideas on what would be the best spod mix to use in a weedy lake. Any help would be very much appreciated. I don't really have the option to spend £'s and £'s.
noticing that you say that your on a tight budget, visit your local pet shop and get some hemp seed, read up on how to prepare it safely and properly and it will be useful in two ways:
provided the weed you was talking about is relatively near the bottom, and also if your lake contains roach and other such small fish, find a weedy spot that you want to fish, then spod out a few generous spod fulls of hemp, plain is fine ( extremely cheap making your own), around that weedy area. Provided the silvers are there and feeding, they will clear all the bait, but will take a relatively large amount of the weed with them too. clearing a nice spot to fish/spod over.
Also hemp is probably the best thing to use as a base for a spod mix. Having prepared your own, now you can add other ingredients, ones that i have tryed and that have worked for me are:
boilie - chopped,whole or crumbed
pellets ( have to be added right before use as can make mix stodgy and then harder to digest )
tiger nuts - chopped or whole
tiger nut flower/meal
condensed milk or coconut milk
nesquik banana milkshake powder
chop and change to see what works for you, try and use something different for that edge over other anglers
i hope that helps, good luck
