Q Are any par­tic­u­lar baits bet­ter when fish have fin­ished spawn­ing? I did well in the spring us­ing par­ti­cles so should I keep us­ing these? Damien Cham­bers, via email

DAN WILDBORE: If it has been work­ing, then stick with it but it’s worth ad­ding a few boilies to the mix. The carp will be look­ing to get back to prime weight. Krill is a su­perb sum­mer bait and I wouldn’t be with­out it at this time of year. It has ev­ery­thing that a carp wants, in both taste and nutri­tion. If you want to stick with the par­ti­cle-only ap­proach, then a liq­uid that of­fers high salts and nutri­tion is worth ad­ding to the mix. Pure Krill or Pure Tuna liq­uid are rich in aminos and very salty, some­thing that carp crave at this time of year. If you cook them your­self, wait for the wa­ter to cool down and then add the liq­uids. Don’t add them while the wa­ter is boil­ing as it may dam­age those aminos.

Ad­ding a few boilies or coat­ing par­ti­cles in liq­uid flavour is a good idea
