Come on then, our mate Newt says you can use Cherry Tomatoes to catch Grass Carp [:0] sounds very logical now he has said it.

What is the strangest bait you regularly use [?]

Here are a few of mine

Hot dog sausages
Marmite on bread
Bovril Paste
Treacle as an additive

I'll stop now, how about you [?]

Carp love Marmite. I have used it spread on the bread before using a large breadpunch. Beat plain bread hands down.

to catch your leeches... when you get to the pond or lake roll your sleeve up lay on the bank & stick your arm in the water and fish round for a brick or stone lift it out and stuck to the brick should be some leeches,[:)]

not done it for a good few years, things you do as a lad to catch a fish! no computer games them days,[:D]

Dave - if you use the white/golden ones and soak them in tepid water with just a tiny pinch of yeast added, they will swell up to nearly original size, get fairly firm, and best of all, ferment so they give off the nicest odors/smells/whatever fish use.

Takes 2-4 days to have them get just right. At that point, drain and rinse well with water then drain again and put in the fridge. They will stay good for nearly a week that way.

There is every chance the water they fermented in would do well for mixing bait as well. Never tried that.

Baby Bell cheese, if nothing is working when I go carp fishing, I usually manage to get one on a baby bell.
