No Boilies is not necessarily a handicap.
For Some reason some Carp in Winter often seem to have a preference for sweetcorn. Maggots, peperami, luncheon meat all work well.
Areas to place Baits: Bloodworm beds if you can find them , the remains of Old Weed Beds, other features, any area near a snag.
Carp aren't necessarily in the deeper water. They may find a temperature band that they are more comfortable with, not always at the Bottom, hence why Courtz has recommended his favourite Zig Rig Method
Way to get round Boilie Ban, if Peperami is allowed, make your Boilie Mix into sausages and then boil them. Stick them in a Peperami packet and then cut the Sausage when you put them on the hook. Better if the Base Mix is a Red/Brown colour
Not that I ever recommend Breaking Rules of Course

thanks thats a brilliant idea, what pepperami flavour is better
The Hot one is supposed to be better in Winter, but I haven't found much difference. I seem to eat almost all of them anyway
I always thought the attractant in meat baits for carp (particularly in spring when they begin to switch on) is the fat content.
But I could be talking rubbish
