i have a few quick questions.....im trying to fish with a method lead rig and ive seen some videos on people using a bag of ground bait mix for there methods.....and some using baits like ( oatmeal, corn, vanilla extract ).............which one would be better for carp in the US.......And i guess particle bait like ( bird seed, hemp seeds, millet,  etc.) is for chumming??? or can you use that to for method leads

I am struggling with the terminology buddy, i am in the UK, and the method employs a large groundbait feeder with a short hooklink behind it, the lead id a fixture inside the feeder, a wet groundbait made very sticky is squezzed around the feeder and the rod is at right angles to the water, no strike should be attempted, just wait till the baitrunner indicates a carp has hooked itself, what you are describing is a bolt rig with a bag of loose feed not in the broadsense the method, if you Pm me i will gladly give you a killer method mix but has to be used as i described otherwise your way it will melt the bags before it hits the water.


I'm not paranoid, they really are out to get me :-(

Yes you are correct, in the UK we call them particles, which just refers to any smallish baits put into the swim. Maize is also considered a particle, there is a list of particles as a sticky in the bait section with instructions on how to prepare them before use.
 

or can you use that to for method leads

If the method you are talking about is the same as described by CM (carpmachine) then you have to do something to it to make it stick to the feeder, which usually implies that you have to grind it up.

Best advice I can give is - if what you are doing isn't working, try it somewhere else :twisted: NOT!
