Baiting Approaches - How Fish React Differently To Different Methods of Baiting
In angling, there is multiple baiting strategies used commonly which have different effect on your fishing depending on the angling scenario. Here is a small run down.
Fishing over Large Quantities of Boilie.
Fishing over a large amount of boilie is a common baiting approach for a lot of anglers. Essentially doing this will keep the carp coming back to your spot as they know bait is there and they will get confident after having a small feed due to the amount of bait there. With this fish are less likely to be shy of rigs if they're confident whilst feeding on your spot.
This method is great if you're fishing in your swim for a long period of time (2/3 nights or more) as with the amount of bait on the spot you are less likely to achieve a quick bite. This method tends to start slow but slowly picks up and hooking more fish as your session continues. Just remember to get 3 spombs on your spot everytime you catch
Fishing over Large Quantities of Particle / Maggot
This method really gets the fish on the feed and you can achieve big hits of fish with this method. The particle gives the carp something to grub around in and with it being based on smaller food particles, it's super easy for the carp to feed on. They will happily keep feeding on particles until it is completely gone as it is a lot less filling than a boilie and doesn't contain the same amount of protein levels.
Baiting With Just a Handful
This is perfect for securing a quick bite. There are some situations where this is the best baiting option like if you're setting a trap close in on the margin then this works best. A hookbait and one handful of baits will guarantee a quick bite when fishing in an edge spot, just be sure to keep your baiting super tight! A bushwhacker is perfect for this!
