I like the film canister feeders aswell mate, although some of the commercially available Kamasan and drennan ones ar good too. I use a variety of 'sea' based grounbait mixes, although salmon and tuna catfood is good (especially for doggies!) either dug in trenches and buried or in a feeder. I have also used trout pellets, sweetcorn, bread and groundbait before when fishing for mullet aswell. Never used boiles, but have have often wondered???
