Is there any bait, that tench like and carp might ignore?

Short answer - No.
Thanks Dave, this is what I thought as well ...

Cheers, Chris! Now I've got some idea of tactics that might help me catch a tench.

Thanks, MD, for giving me the confidence to try the shallow backwaters.

I would try as its getting dark until a few hours after. I've had river tench from a small slow moving river, worms and corn worked well. I had success with a tiny block end feeder (maggots) and worm on the hook as well as a light quill float and corn. The main thing is knowing that the river holds them. All the pegs I caught from have reeds/pads and all fish were no more than a rod length out so literally on the shelf as the margin slopes away. I also pre baited with wheat / pigeon conditoner, just half a pint thrown in two days in a row, the fish came out around the same time as I was pre baiting.
