hi, the catmeat i tend to use is one called Rufus duck and chicken. It comes in chunks with jelly surrounding it. I have to dig my way through to get nice hard chunks but you can use the mush and jelly round the sides for loosefeed. i tend to use a size 10 hook to keep it on. ( its a bummer for coming of hook ). They go crazy for it at my lake. The bigger the catmeat the bigger the fish i see it as. Kitekats another good one. it comes in gravy and you dont get jelly all over your hands. You have to wash your hands a million times to get rid of the smell. Anyway i hop this helps m8.
Trevs right the only place i can say for definite is lidl,s get the beef+kidney.Some certain tackle dealers in my area are cashing in on coshida by buying it for 29p and selling it on for a 1.00a tin been banned on a couple of waters round hear somthing to do with too much going in and taking the oxy out of the water and also effecting the fish.Still cant deny hell of a bagging method when they are having a go bag up my freind enjoy but dont lick your fingers when using it
(Meowwww) lol lol.
I have been using pedigree chum puppy chunks (that's chunks for puppies rather than chunks of puppy) in jelly with pretty good effect. Crucians seem to love it; it's a little soft but goes on ok using a hair rig baiting needle.
Last weekend I had a good lot of fish on it. Not quite as good as my roach catching 14 year old son that was with me. He landed a nice 9lb mirror on a size 18 hook with a single maggot with less than 2 lb hook length line. I was proud of him.
