    I'm going float fishing for roach tomorrow afternoon/evening to a local pond it's muddy and it's about 3-4ft deep, and there's alot of roach in there.
    At this time of year now the weathers warmed back up a bit how much hemp should you use and how often should you introduce it to keep a large shoal of roach feeding

    Well it has been freezing for the last two weeks hard frosts, snow, artic winds, now it's back to cloudy rainy weather, it's hardly the sub zero temperatures we have been experiencing, I should imagine the fish are a little bit more active

    Nick, can I call you Nick?

    Go easy with it, a small pinch every cast.

    A dozen grains with six casters, casters will get the roach sorted.

    Every cast, increase slightly if the fish start responding positively.

    Yeah everyone calls me nick, thanks for the advice

    I was thinking something along those lines, in the summer if i'm using groundbait I use a grape sized ball each cast, and normally introduce about 10 balls of the same size to start the swim off, would you put a light bed down to start the swim off or not bother?

    Nick,

    This time of year I would avoid groundbait, unless the water is coloured.
    If clear, I would use casters with a small amount of hemp or liquidised bread, with punch on the hook.
    You would be amazed at the fish that will take punch, it aint just the small uns!

    I'd fish a punch line fairly close in at say 8M, start off with a walnut size ball of liquidised and if you get bites straight away dont feed again until they tail off.If you don't get any signs give it 1/2 hour or so before feeding again.

    I'd have a hemp/caster line further out at say 11M, no more than a egg cup of hemp with a few casters at first and have a go over the top with caster every now and then to rest the punch line.And keep flicking in 4or5 casters and a few grains of hemp fairly regularly.

    As its quite shallow I would have the 11m line to one side at 10 or 2 oclock, this way you dont disturb the punch swim as much when you bring fish in.

    Nick,

    Beecy's advise above is about as good as it gets.
    Try that approach it really should be successful.







    Scholars have long known that fishing eventually turns men into philosophers.

    Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to buy decent tackle on a philosopher's salary. ~
