    Default What Species ?

    It's freezing cold, the river conditions are very low and clear, I don't live in an area where Grayling exist, so what species would you target ?

    Definitely chub, they don't seem to mind frost at all, I've caught them after dark on cheese paste when my landing net has been frozen solid.
    Hopefully going trotting for greyling tomorrow, nearly sure to catch a few chub as well.

    Chub, Roach and predators from moving waters, or in very sheltered areas (if ice free) away from biting cold winds. Or any deeper areas of around 11ft or more where the water temps can be around 4 deg. Or find a water which has underwater springs erupting from its bed which often stay at similar temperatures throughout the whole year.

    Failing any of the above I would just stay home next to the fire; which is where I am right now and likely to stay until the temperatures start to rise. Lol.

    At the moment i've lost the angling mojo again so i'd have no problem targetting the sofa species as it lies infront of the fire .
