Does artificial sweetcorn work with all types of feed, or only with real sweetcorn?
I forgot the maggots today. My plan was to use hemp in the feeder with maggot hook bait, going on to tares if the fish were biting. Without the maggots I tried a tare for 20 minutes, without a touch. I lacked confidence as I've never caught on tares using ledger, and then I thought 'Aha, artificial sweetcorn!' Again, 20 minutes with nothing, but I had some 8mm pellets and tried them - also nowt!
But for another time, is artificial sweetcorn a useful spare bait on its own, or does it only work with the real stuff as feed, with right smell etc. Without that do the fish consider it a useless bit of yellow plastic?
