Winter particles and groundbaits

Winter particles and groundbaits

Many people think that seeds, particles and groundbaits are less effective in winter. They are making a BIG mistake! I will happily use as much groundbaits, etc. in winter as I do in summer and I have found that a particle-based approach is actually more productive than one based purely on boiled baits.

Though the water temperatures are certainly dropping fast and the nights drawing in, carp can be very active at this time of the year and many experts agree that particle baits, seed blends and even nut baits are very effective during the early winter months of November and December. At this time of year carp are on the lookout for food to build up body fat and overall condition to see them through the coldest part of the winter and that is why particle baits are ideal as they are high in energy-providing fats, backed up with good levels of dietary protein to improve general health and condition.
