Seems very basic but thought I’d put together a bait list, because its easy to turn up at a water and find you have forgotten todays killer bait !
Pellets (Soft bookable, hard on a band or drilled)
Cat Meat (Often outlawed now)
Zig Rig Baits including bugs & foam
Plastics (all of the above 🙂
Lures, Spinners and similar
Live Baits (often against fisher rules)
Don’t forget your Flavours, Spices/ Turmeric and the likes (a Winter favourite for silver fish), Boillie dips, Sweetners and feed triggers etc.
New ideas are coming along all the time, I’ve recently read all about Rock Salt for carp fishing, in particle mixes and on bait, will be writing on this at some point, in the mean time do not use table or road salt, its not the same !! you have been warned.
If you are fishing a commercial water its always best to check whats on the allowed bait list and whats banned in advance, if in doubt ask.
