    Default Bakers meaty Meals for small dogs

    Anyone tried these for surface fishing?

    Tested a lump this morning, soft and sponge like, very beefy smelling and most importantly has floated in my cup of water all day. Same size and shape as a mixer.



    I had fish and chips for dinner.

    They look and sound good so what size hooks would you mount these on? and would they stand up to heavy casting?

    That’s the big question, I’m not sure if a baitband won’t cut through the lump, a quick stop may work better. I’ll try that test tonight. I’d most probably opt for a size 12 hook.

    A hair rig definately and a size 12 hook as a minimum. Our dog liked them but they gave him eczema.

    I have used their bigger brothers for years now, chicken flavour preferably. Even tried them with a fly rod and gave myself both tennis and golf elbow. Pity is, we no longer have a dog to share them with so a packet would last me forever. Hook them how you like, they don't stay in the water too long so don't worry about them coming off the hook, 5 minutes is all you need, but they will stay on for hours.

    I’ve used these for a few years now, just side hook them and they cast quite a way, caught plenty of carp on them, they work as a pop up too, about six inch of the bottom worked ok, caught tench as well this way.

    Used them, the soft ones, as an alternative to Crust when chub fishing. I think my first 6 lb chub was taken on a dark red one. Work well on a 4s hook with biccy shoved right up to the eye of the hook.

    Best dog biscuits I've found are the cheap Morrisons ones, about 2 quid a sack.
