    Default What type of fishing are you really bad at?

    Be honest, what have you tried that you really haven't got yet, or are trying to learn, or feel that you will never have....and why?

    I'll kick it off with Legering - I just haven't got the patience, sad really as I used to like sitting there with a feeder when bream were the sought after fish back in the day, wasn't good at it just saw the appeal. Also lure fishing I just feel I'm bad at it despite getting the odd pike and perch over the years I just don't think I've got it takes to be like somoene like Neil1970 who smashes it

    What's your nemesis?

    Lures for me too.

    And lures for me, too. More than once I've thought how great to wander the banks footloose and fancy free, and bought little rods and a stock of weird metal, plastic or rubber baits. I've been to bits of the Trent full of pike and perch, but I can pretty well guarantee any lure I cast into this river I never see again. I might as well cut out the trip to the tackle shop and just throw the money in the river. I was 15 when I last caught a fish on a spinner.

    Dropshotting with worms is a different matter, and I catch loads. All around 4 oz.

    Never tried fly fishing , I inherited some gear from my cousin but have never really given it a go . I enjoy lure fishing but wouldn't claim any to be any good at , I made the mistake of catching a nice perch put of my local cut and thought this is easy , how wrong was I . Not the best at casting in general which is why I like fishing the pin.

    It’s taken me a while to realise, but more or less any form of fishing that has long inactive periods, (long being twenty minutes or more), so this will include most forms of legering and sitting back waiting for a bite. Only just a few moments ago a pal on Facebook was pulling my leg about the fact I won’t chuck a lead into the sea and wait an eternity for my rod tip to move. This is why I love trotting, lure fishing, and fishing the whip pellet waggler style, all constant action.

    There is just the odd occasion on a hot summer day, turn the alarm on, get comfy and.......zzzzzzz.

    Lures, I’ve caught on them but never to any great success. I had one day when I caught 10 or so little perch and then one around 2 1/2lb and thought I’d got it. Since then it’s been a fast downward slope.
    Feeder fishing is still a bit of an ongoing experiment, I’m not very good at it and tend to favour float fishing

    I was the same with the lures, I used to fish a mere near me that was like tap water , I'd regularly catch 20 or 30 perch and a few pike , colour in the water and I really struggle.

    I have only been fishing regularly for about a year. Plenty of carp on various methods and plenty of other species to.

    Every time I've tried to catch a pike on a lure it's been a failure!

    Can't be bothered with carp fishing. One time I did and had my share but not any more now just too many of them.
