  • timing

    does anyone stick to a time when fishing their lines or is it just guesstimation? i try to but always forget to move when i start catching ( if only ha ). i try to have 5 or 10 mins per line and then move, in a match i try to have 3 or 4 and a margin swim,

    Yes I do, I always stick to around 5 mins, While feeding up the other swims, Then switch. This way, Case you are constantly feeding different areas you have much more of a chance hitting on each swim. But all depends on the location you draw at, I been on some pegs where you have not got that much room so shifting is quite hard so your limited.

    As you mentioned though, Yes if you are catching keep at the same point, But keep feeding the others often but little, This way if you have a point where nothing is happening you can always shift to the other. Good places I stick to the margin, Then 8mtr out, then 14mtr out.

            i have watched some masters at feeding...and come to the conclusion (and had it confirmed by masters watching me ) that i dont feed often enough, not talking amounts but a constant falling of Squat or hemp (or any bait for that matter )is the answer.i used to use a timer that beeped every what ever i set it at i used to catch more prolifically then than i do now. So i have actually reverted back to the timer and found that i am catching for longer which is what its about. The timer may seem extreme but for me it works .The last couple of seasons were a big leaning curve for me there are times when i pulled my hair out at my attempts at fishing commercials So my second major change is to fish the peg the way i feel it should be fished and not listen to the so called local/resident experts its not been easy to try and blank my mind from what i hear..but i am back to my old self and believe i can catch from any peg so my conclusion is..if you get the feeding right you will catch fish.The quantity is down to your skill..........wow thats all a bit profound for me

                  the first lesson i got taught as a junior was you never stop feeding and i was told "if you've stopped feeding you've stopped fishing" so regardless of time of year or venue keep it going in . like the oracle says its knowing how much is the hard bit.
