Right lads, I', no expert on fishing for cats ( have caught a few in the past )

Now, I'm off to france at the end of may and the lake we are fishing has both cats and carp. I know full well that I'm more than likely to hook cats on me carp gear BUt I will have at least one rod out for the cats.

TBH, I cant be arsed to go down the live bait route - my approach was going to be..

:arrow: Put out a bed of halibut pellet ( mixed size's )

:arrow: Got some BIG pre-drilled halibut pellets coming as hook bait and plan to soak these if fish oil before we go.

Now, this is were I have come unstuck..

Was going to get them fish flavoured cat ( the house cat type ) food and stick it in a PVA sock and attach it to the lead and have it as an attractor as well.

Now I have tried the ones you get in the pouches and it melts the PVA right away - because they have a jelly in them.

Have been looking out for some that would suit going in a PVA sock BUT vant seem to find anything :roll:

So, ideas please :?: :?:

i have used coshida by the bucket load for carp and it is awesome, especially when watered down to a soup

but on the downside it gets over everything and stinks :lol:

if you really must bag it, mix it with g/bait

Didn't want to spod Dom - really wanted it tight to me hook bait.

Did think about mixing with g/bait - will have to do a test bag and see how it works

Minty. what about the Fox Arma Mesh! you can add anything to that, and it wont melt like pva, ideal to use the meat as a hook bait then.

from my short carping experience, adding loads of sugar to liquids (till they go syrupy) makes them pva friendly...

have just re-read your post after waking up a little :lol:

How about washing off the jelly then adding the meet to some ground bait to dry out? then 6hrs later add some oil, do this the night before and it should be fine to use in a pva bag then, make up what you need in advance and if you don't use it all that day, it saves making so much up the next night

Problem being, the gravy/jelly is the best part :(

when i used to fish matches i was covered from head to toe in the stuff but caught loads of ton ups

some of the lads were fussy and washed all the gravy off, they didnt catch so well :?
