What do people think is the best Hemp or Pellet as a bed of bait? Using a few boilies scattered as well.

Both - with a smattering of maize, maples, etc...

depends on a lot of general factors such as the stock density, species present, etc, but as a general rule hemp wont fill the fish up like pellet can. If you're talking about fishing at this time of the year, then personally I'd use a fair bit more hemp than pellet in your bed of bait.

I personally thing there both good, as well as together, but cos of price and effectiveness i do think hemp is slightly better. Specially in waters where there are only carp.

Talking about hemp pellets-
Anyone really rate them anywhere near the proper stuff, and had decent results on them?, played about with a few different ones but never really felt that impressed with em http://www.rmcangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/confused.gif

I've hooked (and lost) carp more than once on a single grain of hemp when fishing for roach 'on the drop'.

Mr carp has come up to within 3 ft of the surface in a 10 ft swim to take hemp which had been drip fed into the swim continually for 3 - 4 hours.

Need any more convincing?

I don't. http://www.rmcangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif http://www.rmcangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/smirk.gif
