    Re: Floating baits on a feeder rig

    A lot of people swear by stinky cheese for chub. Maybe try that instead of a buoyant bait if you think they aren't noticing it in the coloured water.

    Re: How local is local

    Everywhere is so shallow and/or weedy, despite the rains. Chub averaging 1.5 - 2lbs are still plentiful, lots more perch these days (average 12oz), not heard of any decent sized pike for ages. Dace...

    Re: Double hook drop shot rig

    I don't think the worm on the top hook got touched mate. I had them just over a foot apart although this got a little shorter when i bit the jig off and tied a hook on. Fishing in about 6 feet of...

    Re: Double hook drop shot rig

    Had a crack at this today. I did get a decent take although we will never know if the fish went for the lure or the worm. Here's the swim:

    I sometimes see roach with the occasional tiny 'goldfish' dot on them, but never a patch that large.

    Re: Double hook drop shot rig

    If you're not fussed about varying the depth of the lure you could just replace the dropshot weight with a jighead and stick half a lobworm on that.

  10. Re: Drop shotting - am I missing something?

    Perch of all sizes are absolute sods for swallowing the hook, dropshotting would seem to be a way of avoiding this almost completely.

    Couple of years ago one of the kids had a handsome trout...
  11. Re: Drop shotting - am I missing something?

    I've got a swim that i'm confident has resident perch and i'm keen to give the old dropshotting another go. I have all the right gear apart from the special hooks but if that youtube is anything to...

    What I like to do on my small river is put half a lobworm on a size 4 or 6 jighead, 3g weight. I can ledger this close in with the line just tight enough to put the slightest bend in the tip, and the...

    Re: Canal Jigging Setup help

    I was bitten off twice in a session when using 5lb fluro, after which i started using traces. I'm surprised the upgrade to 8lb makes enough of a difference.

    Re: Canal Jigging Setup help

    Size 8 jighead is for tiny lures. These can be great fun but for just trying to catch something I wouldn't go less than 3 gram size 4.

    Took my youngest down to the weeping willow swim described in my last post here. Target species perch, bait was lobworms. She only had one fish but it was a nice one that had the clutch whirring.

    Take a few live worms so you have something to stick on the hook when you fancy a sit down or start to suffer from a devastating loss of faith in lures.
