  • Canal help?

    I ve got a match coming up on Kenneth and Avon canal I usually only fish commercials so I'm really out of my league on the canal and usually spend 5 hrs sat around scratching for the odd bite.
    Any advice on approaches, baits and amounts to feed would be a massive help

    Cheers in advance
    Tony

    Keep an eye on weather. If its wet approaching the match then a squatt and chopped worm approach, but if its cold and frosty then breadpunch and caster will be good. Thats the way i would fish it. Having said that i would start on a punch line whatever the conditions. Take some Big red maggots as well and afew flouro pinkies. Try and get some practice in on a good stretch to get your confidence up. Oh and if there is colour in the water you want a dark groundbait for your squatt line.

      with regaurds to swims try one just off the bottom of the nearside slope, and 2 (10 and 2 o-clock positions) just at the top of the far side slope
      and 1 right upto the farbank (if within pole distance) as a bonus fish line perhaps fed with choppy and caster,
      i wouldn't like to say what baits to use for the other lines as i dont really know the place!
      maybe a thread in venue advice could help too!!

          like i said pal i aint never even seen the place thats why i didnt reccomend any baits but chopp n caster tight over as a bonus fish line use to be the norm!
          aint fished canals in years but these are the lines i remember being most affective!

          used to fish the sheffield and tinsley canal quite alot and the average session would be to start off feeding 4 orange sided balls of vde supercup-supermatch and bown crumb laced with pinkies and a few mags over the top of the far shelf and re-feed when bites started to tail off,,
          loose feeding the near slope with mags every other ship out to the long line!!!
          used to get some good nets of skimmers from some pegs and some propper donkey roach from others,,
          happy days, but i cant really give the lad this advice for a canal ive never seen can i ????

                The only advice I will give is listen to Chavey...He is GOD on the Kennet and Avon.

                        Quite abit of the Kennet & Avon Canal is now responding to a micro pellet/fishmeal groundbait approach with expander pellets fished over the top now. Lots of skimmers in some stretches. I've also had success with chopped worm and caster on one line and with breadpunch on another.
