Thread: Pre-Baiting!

  1. #1

    Ok you’re on a venue that’s been hammered with all sorts of boilies, you name it and the venue’s seen it, from the latest spicey prawn and egg to fishmeal and chips. Do you consider getting down to venue whilst you are not fishing and pre-bait with your latest and greatest bait or do you not?

    i reckon pre baiting to get the fish used to the specific bait isnt that important these days, they pick up loads of different baits anyway....but getting them used to feeding confidently on a spot is.

    agreed.

    They pick up and eat/inspect most baits on the market, why will yours be any different?
    Getting them confident in the spot and with the amount of bait you're putting on it will produce results

    Having said that, knowing a decent bait or having confidence in your chosedn one is vitally important.

    if it's a home formulated base mix then i'd prebait it, starting off spraying it about all over the place, then tightening up to a concentrated area over a few weeks.
    firstly to introduce them to it then get them used to finding it in one place.

    if it's a commercial bait then i don't bother.

    thanks jason, it's good to be back.

    You're describing the classic baiting pyramid or triangle.

    Bait the lake and then concentrate it down to certain preferable spots.

    It's a good tactic.

    Welcome back lads. Do you agree with creating your own spot by placing a good bed of particles down and allowing the carp to create there own clear feeding spot. Or is it better to find spots they are already visiting and baiting here to get them more confident.

    that tactic has worked for me previously, but only on waters without loads of features.

    I've spotted where the carp have patroled and have baited on their 'flight path' and they have cleared the spots themselves.

    On waters with loads of features, then baiting a known feeding spot seems to work better.

    Thanks Rik. New lake i am going to try this year i will have to see if they move around a lot or stay near to any features when feeding.

    LOVELY TO BE BACK - SMILES ARE BEAMING FROM ME!!!!

    Bryan I'd say depends how much time you have and with a seemingley heavy workload in front of most of us then find the patches and bait them up. Thats what I love, spending a few hours down the lake with just a marker rod. The places of clear you can find in which you wouldn't normally have fished if given the choice is amazing.

    No matter how much bait we put in re boilies and particles, it sometimes not nearly as much as the naturals. If you can find a patch where naturals are in abundance and then stick a bait into that larder and you could be away.
