WHAT are the best and cheapest particles to use for prebaiting?
John Worrall, Maidstone
IF A shoal of hungry bream, tench or carp is present the fish won’t mind what you throw in! Start off with baits that can be brought in bulk sacks – pellets, hemp and particles that need cooking and stewing beforehand are all winners.
To this, frozen sweetcorn is a super addition and it may also be worth visiting your local animal feed merchant and seeking out Layers Mash chicken feed and Pigeon Conditioner, which is a mix of small seeds for feeding the birds. Add these to a cheap groundbait such as plain brown crumb and you’re on a winner.
