right lads, got a couple of bags of 3-B base mix and was wondering how you find it works best for Chub...... rolled and boiled or paste on a hook? - I have used a paste wrapped bollie approach for barbel and was alway surprised I never got any numbers of chub.... (chub arn't stupid like barbel clown )

Personally, it is a natural progression to use a bollie mix as paste and instinctively know what to do with bites...

what works best for you???

Hi Chris
Interesting topic, there is no difinitive answer as water habitat dictates what is right way to fish with paste. Personally I like to fish a boilie, either whole or split in half and hair rigged back to back. I then like to cover the lot up, hook as well with a bit of matching paste.. If the fish are feeding then I just fish the boilie without any paste

Christian
I find boilies better in the summer months then switch to paste around autumn time, it seems to give me some extra bite's.

Talking of Bait Boss? And as you know I have been after some black bait for some time. Very Happy

I try to keep it as simple as possible, I thought of hair-rigging a small batch of home boiled bollies... but then there is a hook link to attach to the main-line, hairs, needles, stops. I put on a cube of luncheon meat straight on the hook and moulded 3-B paste around this (frifty!) - easier to manipulate in darkness not requiring any light.

Had my first Chub of the season 4lb9oz at 00:38am on 3-B... its a high quality bait that fish on my river have not yet been introduced to...... who knows, may trip up one of those big girls later this season.

You didn't need help after all then, you also didn't need to attach a hook-length to your main line, and no boilie stops are needed, to hair rig baits if you fish it my way, but you seem to have it sorted so I won't elaborate. Shocked

On the contrary, sounds an interesting method you have.... my experience of bollies stems from dabbling in carp fishing. please elaborate... sounds good!

Yorkshire supremo Steve Frost has been putting his 3-B paste to good use by snaring this magnificent 12lb 8oz barbel from a Yorkshire river. Pellet wrapped in 3-B paste did the trick after Steve spied it early in the morning.

Just started to use the 3B bait im rolling 12millers with a paste wrap...I must say that the baits fruity edge is not my usual kind of label but time will tell......I also think that some of the other boilies would be good for barbel...If only the Baitboss would get that website sorted out affraid

Sam has been among the barbel on a Southern water and was rewarded with a lovely 12 pounder on the ever faithful 3-B. Nice one Sam, cracking looking fish mate well done!

I take it you whip a dacron hair to the hook a la Terry Lampard style which negates the need for a separate hook-length, but means you can still fish the bait hair rigged tight to the shank of the hook? Cool

That's exactly the way I do it when I don't wont to use a hook-length, a large knot on the loop does the same job as a boilie stop, hope this helps Christian, sorry the reply has not come sooner, and Mic sorry about that, but I have gone into stealth mode again due to unforeseen cicumstances. Mad
