I'd say forget about looking for a magic bait, concentrate your efforts on finding where the fish are. Do that and there probably aren't many commercially made baits that they would turn their noses at - as long as you resist the urge to dip them into one of those chemical cocktails sold as boile dips.

Carp tend not feed as much in the colder seasons so fish mor eor less the same but for longer and use less bait and when the weather starts to get hotter start feeding up properly again and depending on the lake your fishing depends on the bait you should use. if im fishing a small pond which is mainly a match fishing then i use my little rod and float bread/dog buiscuits where as if i was fishing a large lake for the day and the night id perhaps use boilies dipped in some glug

 

hope this help

One of my best sessions during the month of May was when I was using bog-standard, plain, uncoloured, unflavoured, un-anythinged chick peas.

Next week, the best carp bait is going to be the one on the end of my rig...I hope :D

 

I'm going to take a selection of baits, but I'm hedging my bets that the last dozen or so Snail and Shell boilies that I have from M B Baits will do the trick, along with the kilo or so I have left of Rahja Spice from Quest Baits. I've also got a few shelf life Liver B8 from Quest. I'll take a small amount of back up baits, too.

 

What's the betting that if I do catch, it will be on a seed from my home made particle mix? :D

Elton, do yourself a real favour and take some Fox feeders, a pint of red maggots and a fairly plain method mix. Mix some maggots in the method mix, 8/10 maggots on a no 4 (no hair) short hooklink.

 

"Doing the business" down here at the moment...got the boily men really puzzled :)
