Anyone tried using PVA tubing with a mixture of tuna, sardine mashed with fishmeal base mix bound with halibut oil and used in conjunction with bottom dead baits, do Pike react to this kind of thing similar to the way Cats do. Question

i have used pva bags with pure predator plus in them before - not noticed a massive difference in catch rates etc but like the idea of using oily fish etc in principle. dont see how it would be off putting for a pike on the feed.

fish mash an stuff might melt bag before you cast it out,make sure the halibut oil is pva friendly..if you damp sweetcorn in a strong salt water mix,hemp ect it stops the bait desolveing the bag until it hits the water,not sure if it would work with fish mash/groundbait????might av to try it Very Happy

I have always used tuna, mackeral & sardines in oil with Nutrabaits Big Fish mix bound with Dynamite Halibut oil, mix it on the dry side & "double tube" it , one tube inside the other, Cats seem to like it but they will eat anything Razz
It's good to have my brain back in gear and thinking about my fishing instead of spending long nights in a bivvy at the side of a carp lake Laughing Laughing

i been thinking about selling up with my carp gear. had an ok season but just getting bored of it TBH and not finding enough time to dedicate to it as i would like/need to to get the results i would want to to get a new pb etc. i think after 6 spring/summers of it i have turned into a bit of a lazy angler- not putting thought and effort into my angling like i used to. those few times i have recently been out trotting a float or filling a feeder for a few hours i have really enjoyed it like i used to and it didnt cost me an arm or a leg either...
pike have always been my first choice of specimen fish to have a go at and i dont think thats gonna change anytime soon tho! lol

Good god tootall i thought you were going to throw the towel in for good then, But well happy you going to dedicate your time to the old Pikeing,
As for everything else, Try attatching a cage feeder to your trace about 3" from your bait and put Minced fish into it so it only bring the Pike to your bait,

thing is Paddy i 'I think' about doing a lot of things these days - so i probably won't act on it lol. I'd hate to sell all my gear (probably for less than it's worth) only to regret it next season or something.

I sold all my gear several years ago for far, far, less than it was worth and instantly regretted it Sad Sad I have now bought pretty much everything back new and even though I've not used it for a few years due to a family illness there is no way on this earth that I would ever sell it again!!!!

I haven't used PVA but have used a large cage feeder rammed with goodies.
It hasn't proved its worth yet but then again my season hasn't kicked of yet. I'm still after my 1st Pike! Embarassed
