Groundbait in floods?

Just wondered what you guys use in flood and if it works well? I'm going to try the Trent soon (once its down a bit more) with meat and worms, feeder too.

Thanks all.

Down a bit more? We’ve just had nearly 24 hours of continuous rain :( It’s only going in one direction over the weekend.

Vitalin, boosted with chopped old meat, sweetcorn, pigeon conditioner (bostin' gray pays 🤭 ), whatever...plus a bit of hemp maybe, and glug the feeder. Can be balled into slacks too.
