Default When to stop using paste

I've fished paste a lot this summer , made from a stiff mix of ground bait and talking to a match angler this week and he was saying that he'd not fishing paste as the weather turned cooler

So when is the right time to stop using paste

When it stops catching fish or when you run out.

I've never had much success with paste till this year

Absolutely. Though it's generally considered a summer bait, but there's no particular date you should start or stop using it. When it starts and stops being effective will depend on the fishery concerned and the climatic conditions.

I believe one of the reasons paste is so successful is that its more soluble and has high leak off compared to other baits.
Its presented in various ways but it doesnt stay on the hook for long periods so in winter for example you might be fishing for bites that simply arnt there or are far and few between, by which time you might unknowingly be fishing with bare hooks.
Using paste for chub and barbel on a single trot down is the only real (sensible) option in my opinion; halibut cheese paste, halibut paste, or a home-made paste concoction on the hook or wrapped around a pellet... along with bread mash balled in or a feeder will always work in any conditions.

That's interesting. I have never thought to stop using paste. For goodness sake
please don't tell the roach to stop liking it in the winter.

How many baits "always" work? I always take bread but it doesn't always catch, probably why the bait bag is heavier than the tackle box😄

I don't stop using paste when the weather gets colder - just add some vodka to the mix to ensure a good leakage.............

Chris is spot-on about the 'leak-off' - Cold weather reduces this - but the main problem is the lack of maleability in the cold so you can end up with a rock-hard lump on the hook preventing penetration of the point.
The local 'paste-man' up here reckons if he adds olive oil to his mix it stays 'plastic' for longer in colder water and he gets more 'hook-ups' later in the season if using a smaller pinch - mind you he uses tiny pinches on a 22!
I just can't get over the fact that it looks like a bright green tiny mushy pea!

Spot on Sam

I would always consider it, what do you do when the bites stop, try something else. It is good to have a selection of baits, what works in one place may not work in another and fish get wise to the baits we use.
