I was under the illusions that ALL spod mixes are made by yourself :? I mean you dont go to a tackle shop and ask for "5 kilo of spod mix please" do you? :roll:

Don't meant to nit-pick but you can buy buckets of spod mix from your tackle shop-you just add water!!

I've seen spod mix ready to go. It's sold in small tubs & costs a small fortune :lol:

I use hemp, pellets, boilies, tuna (in brine), maize. Works well in summer. It might not be a great idea to be firing out heavy spods of oily particles at this time of year.

Would you still add the extras in winter or just stick with pidgeon conditioner??
Sorry about all the questions, I've just not used particles in winter as yet. This is first year I've started using particles so trying to gather as much info as I can!
Thanks

Pigeon conditioner works well on its own, try and avoid useing any extra oils than you have to in winter, most pigeon condtioners will contain a percentage of hemp as an ingrediant anyway :wink:

And probably pay a bit more for it buying it from your local Tackle Shop as well

Don't forget that Particles often don't work as well in Winter. They rely on the Oils in them for Attraction. Colder water does not allow the oils to flow freely from the bait.

More food for thought! Cheers Nick. Would pellets be better in that case in the winter? If so, I'm guessing ones with a faster breakdown would also be preferable? or am I going along the wrong lines here?!
