If you could only use three baits for the rest of your life, which would you choose?
For me it would be, bread, caster and worm.
I`m sure this question will have been asked before but members come and go and times change, so what`s your choice folks? [:D]

hi

Maggot - As it catches anything that swims, is cheap, and is more consistent than worm I feel through all seasons so it has edged worm out for me.....

Corn - highly visual bait, bagging bait for summer plus picks up bonus fish even in winter and you can liquidise it into a mush type groundbait

4mm Expander Pellet - Superb bait for commies plus the smaller size covers all options even for roach and skimmers plus is a good loose feed bait to get better fish!

Lastly if oversoaked could also even be made into a paste.

Caster - I catch as much on caster as on maggot, but with a better stamp of fish.

Corn - Very versatile will work on most waters for most species and works most of the year.

Pellet - Absolute must for fishing these days.

Mine would be in order:

Corn
Pellet
Maggot

Slightly off topic,

We all know there can be a lot of "tackle snobbery" these days, but I came across a case of "bait" snobbery last week![:0]

Fishing a small knock up, a chap there kept banging on about how no one else would be in the running without worms.

Ok, so Ive only fished the place a few times, so gave him the benefit of the doubt at first, but al through the match it was "I ll bet that bloke over there s using worm"

"If you dont use worm, youre mad"

"Fancy not bringing worms with you, you ll do no good without them"

"If he s using worms, he ll win it from there!"


By the end of the match I had worms on the brain!!! alcoholic2.gif


Come the end of the day, and through the weigh in, I asked everyone what they had caught on.........

Guess what they used???????



Corn

Pellet

Maggot

Meat........


Not one of the top 5 used worms[:p][:p]



We all have our favourite baits, mine being corn, but sometimes you have to try something different[;)]

Caster

Close one between maggot and caster but the later singles out the bigger fish.

Luncheon meat, corn and maggots.

(If you select maggots you will naturally get casters as well, so a sneaky bonus!) [:T]

Bread, maggot and worm.



Bread you can use as a hookbait or turn into paste, pellet and groundbait.


Magott you can turn into caster



And worm? Every fish will take a worm or a bit of one.
