Baitzone Punch

a few tips and
ideas to get the best from some of the
products sold under the Essex based
Baitzone banner. Along with this I’ll
be covering my use of their products
and sharing with you some of the
captures I’ve experienced when
using the Baitzone gear.
Baitzone have been supplying
anglers with their quality range of
particles and associated products for
the last couple of years and their popularity has grown very quickly. I first

and quickly realised what an excellent range they had available. Ok, so

bread sticks and the use of Baitzone’s

of my local waters and began experimenting with a few bits and pieces.
My usual winter fishing these days
consists of day or short overnight sessions on a number of local day ticket
and club run venues. One of the
things that they all seem to have in
common is the fact that the public

bird feeding families throwing untold
amounts of bread at our lovely feathered friends. Not all of this gets eaten
by the birds, and I’m convinced that
