feeding other fish off your swim

Post by craigpix2000 on Tue Aug 04, 2009 8:53 am

for this weekends spod mix ive been thinking down the lines of (vitalin, corn,hemp, tuna, micrro halibuts, crushed boilies)
is there anything else i could add that may help feed the snottys and tench off theres alot of big snottys in the water im doing and im wanting to get past them for the carp i was thinking of adding mini tigers to the list but not sure if they would help or not if it would feed the snottys off leaving room for the carp to grub around scratch

did you spell that right was it a big Stotty scratch

If you can fish a tiger nut over it very rarely get Bream on them also if your brave enough and can sit it out large baits Snow man or a 18mm but I have seen big ones get them in there mouths but can help a lot.

A nice big fresh nut.. either tiger or a peeled Brazil nut..(important to peel it) I would leave out the meaty fishy bits like mini halibuts and the tuna.. just my opinion...

Good luck

In deep water if you going to ball it in you want it to a consistency that it will throw and hold together until it hits the bottom if you fishing the margins I would make it runny and use a bait spoon to feed it in clouds up the water that way.

So many people have been balling mixes in with Tuna that now the big shoals of bream are so switched on to it and your water can go black with them when they are proper on the munch...

I think a good ol partimix with vitalin to bind it as if you are fishing deep water then it needs to hold together.. if it is milky and loose it will suspended in the upper water levels.. ideal if Ziggin but crap if bottom baits..
