Post by THOMMO on Mon Oct 08, 2012 6:20 pm

Are they a viable bait in the colder months?

very viable,with clearer waters,less weed,they are far more difficult for the wild fowl to find.

would not agree - clarity of water should not affect any baits effectiveness?

if the water is 'clearer' then logic suggests any 'offering' should be more visible?

and any wildfowl will pick up an 'item' to see if it is edible?

now peanuts are another matter (and brazils)

it does if the pesky birds struggle to find them!

as above

and again

'agree' the birds will find and destroy them easier,as they are lighter and softer if prepared properly.

I would have thought that the sugary syrup they exude would make them a brilliant winter bait. After all, sugars dissolve easily in cold water unlike oils.

I would,like to give it a try but tigers are banned on all the waters I can fish at present due to the idiot factor prevalent in most clubs.

I know tigers catch fish but I just have no confidence in them. Do fish regard them as food straight away? I have used them quite a bit fished alongside boilie but only caught on the boilie.

They will catch straight away on any water where they have been used before. If using on a water for the very first time it can take several weeks to get the fish on them. However, such waters are rare. Even in rivers they will take tigers straight away, although many river carp started out in lakes where they probably eat tigers.
