Flavour is a very confusing issue Ed

Fish are not going to taste flavours as we do they have never seen a strawberry for eg. In my opinion the best bait has little in the way of added flavours instead of flavours think of natural substances which the fish can sense is foodstuff. This and ph of baits is what attracts fish to our baits.

For eg I use a pineapple and n butyric acid mix on my pop ups and I believe these work because of a signal - or ph change that the fish can sense and are attracted to go and investigate not because of the pineapple per se.

You will not get the best deals from shops etc - I ring up the bait company direct . Here is a bait and company of long standing that I can highly recommend and I have caught a lot of carp on this stuff - ring premier baits in KEnt and ask for a price for their Matrix boilie - ask for Tony. I used to pay about 6 quid a kilo. Or look at ccmoore who will give some discount.

Got to dash -

Bait and feed do the Premier Matrix:
5kg of Boilies
2 x matching Glugged Bottom Baits
2 x Tubs Pop-Ups
5kg Crustacean Pellets
1 x 250ml Crustacean XS Liquid Boost
£60

This is getting tres confusing...

Bet I'm not alone either! But 5kg boilies, 5kg pellets, 2 tubs of pre glugged and 2 tubs of pop ups and a "liquid boost pot" for £60 sounds great value.
It's any mainline bait too...
Might mix and match mainline with the matrix and see what happens...

I think I need to sleep on all this and make a brave decision!

Its so true, there is so much to choose from, but its a question of experimentation I think.

So whens the next session for everyone?

It's only as confusing as you let it be. It's simple really they are only fish - they need and want to feed if they feed on your bait you will catch them LOL

It's not like you will be fishing rock hard massive waters with very few fish . Even then it's just the same but you have to find the fish.

On the runs waters you will or should be fishing just go down one of the proven routes; get them feeding on your bait - use a food bait bags or stringers supplemented with pellet or the like. Or go for high attracts flouro pop ups and the like or you could always use particles LOL

Keep it simple - like I said they are only fish Question

Spot If Iím fishing a super hard water I tend to use my own bait as I know it has a good track record and I can sit there on my hands and think yes thatís fishing OK.

I am lucky I get a lot of cheap bait I feed my pond fish on it and I use it for my baiting up. Get them feeding on it and it works. As with my block the other night in 24hrs I had put over 7k of bait in but the only two swims on the lake catching were the two with the bait in. On the other hand I have seen big beds of bait kill a swim. Its trial and error Edd. If it was simple we would all have UK PBs of 40 lb and it would be called catching

Rulez Rules of Stotty, eh?

Well, looks like my ideas of a crushed stick mix and 10 around the hookbait will do for my 1st attempt.

Better to try and then try harder then try harder than to try too hard and fail instantly!

Going over for a look tonight, been told it's a deep water (to about 12ft) so taking a rod with my braid reel and a 3oz lead to check out what the bottom's like... I'll also have small tub of boilies in case I see a spot I like to bait up for Saturday.
Also, after reading the rehydration article, taking a big empty bottle to collect some lake water for a trial. leaving some shelfies out to go hard then pop them in the water on friday night.

I want to catch me a carp.

Thanks to everyone for their assistance on this, got a shed load of thinking to do regarding baits and I know I'll do better with this info in my head.

i'd maybe chip in on some bloodworm from erics mate but i doubt we'll get it for less than 8quid a kg. 5kg each would be about 45quid and i'm pretty sure they'll be one or two boilies in there that'll fool a 20
