What fish will eat cheese?
Cheese is an effective bait when ledgered, float fished or free lined and cheese is a very effective fishing bait for chub, carp, tench and barbel.
Do fish like cheese for bait?
Whether it’s stilton, parmesan or classic cheddar, cheese paste is a great way to get more attraction from what is likely to be high-quality fish. The best types of cheese to use for your paste are crumbly ones such as Stilton and Danish Blue as these can be kneaded into paste form and then moulded around the hook.
What is the best cheese for fishing?
Mozzarella cheese is the best, as it has a texture a lot like rubber and is more likely to stay on the hook when you cast it out. Tasty cheese certainly catches cod, but often falls off the hook when casting. I cut my mozzarella cheese into small cubes about 1.5cm long and usually put 3 or 4 cubes on the hook.
