Whatever works! Look at the groundbait sticky at the top for ideas,only limitation is your imagination and the more imaginative you are the chance is you'll be different to every other angler and it'll pay dividends.
I use a two part mix,consisting of a small amount of my boilie base mix for the hook to pull into and a coarser mix of crumbed boilies,ground 2mm pellets,tuna,crushed hemp,liquidised maggots/worms and various liquid foods/dips which if used through the whole stick could mask the hookpoint. :wink:

The only limits is your imagination.

Even in the summer months the fish will find oils hard to digest. I try to stay away from bait with an excess amount of oil in them and if thats not possible then i try to keep their use very limited to save any damage to the fish.

I use the method-mix powder that matches my boilies, then add some matching glug, some Solar Byt liquid, tuna flakes, dried out corn and hemp (not too much dried hemp though, as it floats), some pellet and broken boilies. This tends to be used in a solid PVA bag though, as opposed to a stick.
