Default making liquidised bread and fishing with bread on a canal

Hi I am going fishing this weekend on my local canal and want to fish bread punch, its full of roach, chub, bream, perch and small tench, I would like to know how to make liquidised bread, do I cut the crust off and bang it in a blender or leave crust on? How do I feed it to, do I use it like groundbait and feed large balls of it in or little and often? What size hooklength and hook do I use? What size punch do I need? Iv3 never fished with bread so I am unsure how to prepare and fish with it, how do I store it? Or am I just as well buying bread crumb groundbait and using that? I intend on fishing with the pole, I also have so hemp seed to but can it be used effectively with bread? I will be taking maggots to. Do I fish on the bottom with bread? Will any loaf do? And will 1 loaf be enough for an 8 hour session?
Sorry about all the questions but I've not been fishing long and I am a total novice when it comes to fishing with bread.

Regards Keith

whilst not an exhaustive guide - (I feel there is much to be gained by experimnting with brown bread) this may be of use....

I just break slices of bread in to smaller pieces and them shove them in the blender and blend it until it becomes very fine Crumb (i know others who prefer to cut the Crust off) personally i don't bother. I then feed it as Little and Often and when i say little i mean a Thumb Nail size piece, bread can quickly over feed the smaller fish and it's bites your after. if you are using the Pole i was use a small kinder pot or similar pot to feed depending on how many bites i was getting. Start with no feed and if you get bites put some feed in.
Believe me unless you are having a blinder of a day you will not be using a whole loaf as hook bait. Take some very fresh slices of a Quality Bread and cut the crust off them, now roll each slice with a roller so as to thin them slightly, and then place them in a Plastic Food Bag or something similar, repeat this process for as many slices as you think you will need. You can feed Hemp if you like but you may find that the fish become preoccupied on it.

I prefer to fish mine on the Bottom, but you may have to string the shot out so that if the fish do come up in the water you can still hit in to them.

If you are fishing the Pole a Hooklength of around 6 inches will be ample. A fine wire hook, something like a size 20 Kamasan B511 and perhaps 1.5lb - 2lb Hook Length to a Number 3 or 4 elastic.

As per all the above replies but on stillwaters, it can also be fished on the waggler, bulk shot around float with dropper about 9" below, 6mm piece of punched bread (I just compress it between my fingers and punch it out) on a size 16 hook. The above set up will allow the bread to drop slowly so you can attract bites through the differing depths. If the smaller fish are up in the water, then change the shot to get the bait down quicker.

If I try to use too small a hook, I find it difficult to attach to the bread so have to use a smaller punch. If using a piece of flake for larger fish I would go to a 14 or even 12 hook. Don't be afraid to squeeze the bread tightly around the hook shank, it will expand in the water and if not compressed tends to float (not a problem if carp are on the top). If necessary reel in and just gently squeeze, it should sink when recast.

During warm weather I only take about a quarter of a slice out of the bag at a time, once the bread starts to feel dry you will find it comes off the hook very easily, this makes the bait last longer.

This: Fishing the bread punch, Talk angling feature
is one of the best web articles on punch.
Apologies to FM for quoting another site.
London-speak alert - "boundary" means a fishery or "beat"- old LAA stewards would be responsible for a match section between two boundaries and the term gradually shifted its meaning.
A bit like "Specimen".

How do you get the liquidised bread to the bottom ? Is that the way to fish it or as a cloud ?
I tried it with pva bags , but of course they floated , will try next time with pebbles in the bags.

its horses for courses of course, but on a slow flowing river - (maybe a canal too????) take a handful of crumb and squeeze it. the harder you sqeeze it the denser it is and it should sink quicker - but it still breaks down when it takes on water on the river bed.

If you experiment with the amount you squeeze the crumb, you can effectively have a bit of control over when and where it breaks down....

I always put a bit of crumb in, and there are some water where the whole loaf gets mixed in together. I cut the crumb off the loaf, liquidise the crumb and bread on their own first, then mix them together to the mix i require.

I have also found that if you add a little water at the bankside, it helps get the mix down quicker.
