Boilies. They will eat them given time and if they are hungry.

Maize.
Cheap, easy to prepare, visual, and there is hardly any carp in the world that wont eat it.

Most interesting. Boilies (all sorts) do not seem to be instantly attractive to my local low stock water naive fish. Maybe if I could get Atlantic Heat 😁😁😁........

I fished a non fishing very very low stock lake last year (with permission). Tried sweetcorn, maggots and Brazil nuts. But all the fish came to Atlantic heat topped with a bright pink pop up. Would have put money on the corn, but boilies seemed immediately attractive.

I would take sticky baits krill, or dynamites the source.
Why? Because they will catch anywhere imo.

What have you been using?
Are you confident in it?
Does it catch fish?

If the answer to the above is 'yes my current bait works', that is what I would use on a new water.

'Why?'
Anglers change bait for flimsiest reasons.

They didn't catch, the bait is cr ap. Need a new bait. Not that the angling was cra p and the bait was nowhere near the fish.

Pick your current favourite angling celebrity, the bait they use is the best, must use it. Next month your favourite angler is someone new, so change bait.

Advertising, 'oh, this bait produced 6 40's from this lake, must be the best'.

Get on one bait, get confident in it, stick with it, don't chop and change. The best anglers have used the same bait for years.

Hi Awstwin

I've fished many "green" waters.
My approach has always been sweet corn placed where you can see it, i'e margins or plateau if your boating out.
You'll quickly know how much they are going through.
Start with trying to catch the smallest fish (ie small hooks and single baits) and work your way up to the larger fish, hopefully carp.
That's unless you see them first, then it's straight onto a 16 mill yellow on a size 6 wide gape

Best

Jon
