          It certainly depends on the water your fishing but the key to any method in winter is the feeding. If you just slightly adapt your feeding pattern so that you are putting in a smaller feed content then there is no reason why it wouldnt work if it has been in the summer. You may also need to be slightly more patient for bites as the weather cools down. Another tip could be try this method also abit further down the shelf in the deeper water as it gets abit colder.

              I am sure Henry has used this to great effect at Packington, choking his donkey

                LOL. Also a couple of tips i have forgot to mention that you could try is to pop a small bright coloured boilie off the deck a couple of inches which can sometimes get you bites when all else fails. One that i tried with a some success last winter was to use a small pva bag in the height of winter with a few loose offerings which keeps all your feed together without thrashing feed on top of the fish when they just dont want it.
