  • hooking technique

    sunday was a hard day at times, the fish only switched on properly for a hour n half and the rest of the times you had to have inch perfect presentation to get a bite, first 2 hours i was hooking the corn with abit of point showing, then i thought ill try banded pellet and had bites off small fish so that was out the question, so i decided it had to be the hook so i started burying the hook, had 4-5 carp through this but alot of the time thje corn was to soft and the hook was pulling through, so i had to scale down to a 18 hook from a 16 to try and achieve presentation, but then after having a few carp i started losing them due to the hook hold, so with that in mind as anyone got a method of hooking corn that buries a 16 hook without it pulling back through?

    Have you tried using a baiting needle,insert it from tho open end and out the rounded end,hook it to the bend of the hook and pull all the way back through,remove the needle and twist the hook 45deg and ease back so the bend rests on the open edge with just the point exposed.works for me. Regards Peter.

            im sure i was a carper in another life. lol. i had a similar problem with corn. if i used anything bigger than a 16 hook , my bites almost stopped. i was missing a few bites so changed to a hair rig with 3 bits of corn with a 14 and hardly missed a bite. to be honest i didnt get as many, but the bites were really positive.

              Try it this way if you dont want to use a hair it works well.

                  I have various needles but, a size 0.75 or 1mm crochet hook is perfect.(far more durable and cheaper). Regards Peter.
