HOW MUCH BAIT TO USE
HOW often do we hear the phrase ‘feed little and often’? But what does this really mean?
Fish are easiest to catch when they are competing for food – introduce too much and they can become very choosy and often ignore the hookbait. Get it right, though, and they will race to the next bait before their shoal-mates can get it.
Even a single spodful of bait is quite a lot of food when it is sitting on the bottom, so think carefully before you decide to fill it in. You can always add more but you can’t take it out.
