As the autumn draws on and the fishing gets a little harder, I have just realised that I have not used Bread as a bait at all this year.
Do you guys still use it for anything other than your sandwiches, and if so, for what species/conditions?
Thanks,
Hunter

it's one of my fave baits on rivers for chub, flake on the hook and mashed/liquidised for feed or punched on the canal for roach.

Hunter, breads a good bait to use all year, even in the very depths of winter.
My favorite way of using it at this time of year is a big flake, freelined if possable so it sinks very slowly and just rests on the bottom, i've found this deadly for carp and bream when a regular trickle of groundbait or maggots is going in.

Heres a good tip, to gain confidence in using bread, go to your local pond, river, canal, and look for signs of people feedig ducks, its easy to find somewhere, near houses, or parks or dog walks, and all you do is go along with your tackle and a couple of loaves and feed the expectent ducks.
when the ducks have had enough (ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!) stop feeding, let it all settle down, then flick out a large flake.
worked for me.
still does.

Hi Hunter, as winter kicks in and the rivers loose their colour, bred punch and white crumb really come into their own as a great roach bait. feed small balls of crumb on a little and often basis and fish a pellet of bread over the top and the fish will soon get going. hope this helps mate

Hi Martin, the end bits are called

hi
i dont know about anyone else but ive found that white bread crumb is very tacky when mixed hovever you try to mix it.
ive found the best is liquidised bread just a gentle squeeze &
it just clouds up as soon as it hits the water , a tighter squeeze & it will sink before clouding up.
the only time ill use white crumb is as a binder on faster waters or to slow the breakup of balls of g/bait when im pre baiting

I use bread all the time for chub summer and winter. In the winter i will use flake along with a feeder full of liquidised bread. [;)] and in the summer for tench on the bottom, carp on the bottom and surface and chub on the bottom and the surface. All these fish i hav found will take bread [:)]

Tight lines [:D]
