I find that fishing the bomb and bread for carp, works well when the colour has dropped out of the lake,
would it be worth trying, on the lake if its the colour of chocolate, as it is at the moment
I have a match this weekend, and bites will be few and far between, so I don't want to be on the bread if its a waist of time, when I could be
on pellets or sweetcorn,or using another method etc.
Before you tell me to fish for silvers, the Lake is dominated by carp so they must be the target species as a net of silvers wont get you in the frame. (thanks all)

colour = smell for me so corn, bandem or some other smelly target bait, maybe maggot depending on other species

I don't necessarily go along with the idea that bread is only restricted to clearer water when legered by any method as I use it all year.

Go with what's been winning on your lake but give yourself a few bait options and definitely take a few maggots with you, carp love 'em... .Good luck. (y)

And if you're fishing popped up bread, sit on your hands, don't be reeling it in every 15 minutes.

Thanks all good info ,
Hope the weathers better than today for match.
When fishing popped up you tend to get a lot of drop backs so get ready for those also. But, like what’s been said ... be patient and don’t always throw in the same spot. Find the fish. Think of it like dobbing. Good luck. ?

I find with bomb and bread putting a bit of goo on can have an impact if plain bread struggling, effectively bread but some flavour/attractant.
