UPDATED: 22/02/10

1. Use any left over bait from your fishing trips to make chum. Chop up and freeze for next time then mix with groundbait.

2. Blast frozen Sardines are cheaper at supermarkets like Sainsburys (£2 for a bag) Found in the freezer section.

3. When reeling in your deadbait to recast; don't do this quickly. Sink and draw on the retrieve. You might get a take!

4. Some baits can be refrozen and used time and time again. e.g. lamprey.

5. To enhance your bait; pour 'Predator Plus' onto the bait and pop it in freezer; the additive will then be drawn into the bait.

6. When deadbaiting for pike ALWAYS try and keep resistance to an absolute minimum; e.g. open bail arms & light clips.

7.Try pushing a alka seltzer tablet down the throat of your deadbait before casting, to create a visual attraction.

8. Short sessions can be just as productive; so have some tackle at the ready for spur of the moment trips.

9. Always make up your landing net before your 1st cast; Just in case you get an immediate run.

10. Try 'fox casting clips' when casting heavy bait. They take the weight off your hooks and allow bait to be softly hooked.

11. When popping up a dead bait keep the length of line on the bomb link longer than the trace to prevent tangles.

12. Don’t forget to stab a few small holes in a lamprey to get those juices flowing!

13. Use paper clips as a weak link for connecting your leads.

14. If you haven't got the weight indicated on your leads, try using different coloured paper clips on a specific weight of lead, e.g: Red = 2.5oz blue = 3oz green = 3.5oz etc

15. Buy some cheap velcro straps to hold your rods together. Stops them banging about in your quiver or holdall.

16. Try out of the ordinary baits to gain the advantage. Foreign fish markets and pet stores are a good place to search.

17. If you use carp rod holdalls, use an old 35mm camera cartridges with a split cut in lid to put your lead and swivel in so your rods are set up all the time.

save yourself some cash and hassle by taking your frozen baits to the bank in a cool bag/box........ the only baits that defrost are the ones you use in cooler weather, and most stay more or less frozen in warmer weather too!!
you dont need to throw entire bait packs away just take the bait you haven't used home with you and put it back in the freezer still frozen.
oh and dont worry trebles will penetrate frozen fish quite easily Very Happy

or keep gunning and running to drop it close to a pike

liek lure fishing only not quite as quick on the recast

depends on what the fish want leaving baits is ok on patrol routes but they wont find a bait if they are not moving a great deal and the bait is nowhere near them

For added attraction use textured weights and dip them in a glug like Dynamite Pike Scent Trail.

18. If you use textured weights then dip them in a Pike glug for added attraction.

19. Take your frozen baits to the bank in an insulated cool bag and only defrost the ones you use. Save the rest to take home and use another day.

20. Try not to recast baits too often as you will move the scent trail that Pike follow.

When making traces/snap tackle and you are using shrink tubing to tidy up. Try looking in your local DIY shop or Ebay..........you get it in bulk meters and it costs less than the branded fishing tackle versions.
whatever coulour and size.....It's Up to you Cool
