  • bread punch

    its that time again ........im normaly a out and out carp match angler but this year im thinking about concerntrating on the bread punch on the canal for a change. i have fished it lots of times in the past and always caught well but i find that after a while i loose the fish i dont know if i over feed them or not. i tend to put in about a thumb nail size amount at the start and then i do the same again when my bites slow down i will then catch for a while then i lose them totaly. i know that some match canal anglers add dry milk powder to the punch to get a better cloud in the water can you canal lads put me right so i can start haveing ago on the canals around my home as i live by some of the best canals in the country around pelsall and brownhills and down th the cannock extention so i think it would be rude not to give it ago this year.if you could put me right on hooks , line , depths, and shotting patterns and also feeding i would be most greatfull thanks for your time........

    Try putting in a reasonable amount of likky and try fishing it out, before thinking of re feeding, and also try searching your swim anything up to a metre away from your baited area, you should catch a few fish again before they seem to dissapear, its then back over your baited area where again you should pick up a few fish before they seem to dissapear,so its back to searching for them, I watched Marko MBC doing exactly that on a feature we done on the cut at Walsall he was convinced that had he refeed when the bites initially dropped of it would have possibly killed his swim.
    Mark prepared his likky by drying the bread out before putting it through a blender this resulted in a nice fine mix , and added water to make a slop which he then cupped in.

      i always feed hemp as well as either licky or crumb, its suprising what roach you can catch on hemp when they have gone off the bread, even on the coldest of days

        I don't profess to be the best punch angler.But it is my favorite winter method, Punch fishing is an art and you have to perfect your own style i have put the links on here from some brilliant articles from anglers who know how to fish it.And i make no apologies to the sites i copied links from thats what forums are about sharing info.All these guys are right in there way of fishing you just have to take out the million and one tips they have given us and add you own little bit of magic .Mine is to add garlic salt i don't know if it works but it gives me confidence and i feel i have an edge over anglers that don't use it.I also try different grades of liquidized the lot crusts as well for warmer days .Pure white just liquidized once on the morning i go,And dust where i have liquidized the white and frozen it and the liquidized it again and then a 3rd time.It really is dust then.Then have a look at your punches big ,small .minute they all work finding which one is part of the art .Floats well im not even gonna suggest a pattern i use any with a long bristle and find if i don't dot them down i see more of the sudden quarter inch dip as i call them.Thats a bread phenomenon bite if you don't know what i am on about there just watch your float and you will see what i mean.But to the guys below many many thanks cus without there articles my punch fishing would still be just another method,instead i now think its a weapon in my armory

          i have tried this a few times,and ive had a modicum of success.liquidize a half of braces thick white loaf,then do the same to a own brand supermarket brown loaf.i then add the two together,and use a maggot riddle,then a pinkie riddle.you get a fine,fine cloud,and for some reason,i have caught some far better roach over it.dont ask me why,for i honestly do not know.

              When fishing over sloppy liqy, the fish usually drop down with the flow of the cut.
              All canals have a flow.
              Start over your feed an inch, sometimes 2 inches off bottom, vary untill you get bites.
              Feed with a kinder no more than a pea sized amount as bites tail off.
              Too much feed will kill it stone dead.
              Then start deepening off half inch at a time and a few feet off the feed in the direction of the pull.
              You will find them again.
              I have caught up to 3-4 meters off my origional feed spot and the aim is to end up dead bottom picking up fish.
              PS. You must keep the feed going in over the origional feed area.
              PPS. Don't ignore a flouro pinkie as a change bait now and again. I find this will pick up any skimmers in the area.

                We had some success on the Exeter canal years back using brown bread likky. It seems kind of oily when likkied and helped us to catch roach where others could only scrape a couple of perch out.

                Also, if fishing for skimmers, some Brasem powder added to the likky can help. About one teaspoon for one loaf of likky.

                    Ta, haven't seen it yet. It was proper cold when I shot it but the fish still wanted it as long as you fed.

                          daz i always put some cornflour in with my bread when i blend it as it makes it go finer then sieve and freeze it. when u come to use it the bread will be really fine with no lumps and u wont need to add water to it. but remeber the harder u squeeze the likky bread it will float on the surface
                          On really hard days when it is really cold i use sloppy likky bread. makes more of a cloud.
