  • shotting pattern at 16ft help

    I am fishing My local club water and am doing ok at present but just wondering if anyone has got any advise on a decent shotting pattern to fish a 1.25g 0r a 2gr pole float at 16 ft and over as that is how deep my local water is. cheers.

    Depends what sort of fish you are targetting! If its carp, keep it simple,a 1.5grm should be fine,most of it bulked 18inches from the hook with a couple of 10 droppers below!

        Same rig then bud but put the bulk a litttle further away!
        All the best!

          it's fairly deep here where i fish on the ouse, which is mainly skimmers an odd decent bream. the flow is practically stationary to slow so my set up may suffice with you too except for size of float. ( presume ur on a stillwater)
          Basically in that depth of water the key is to keep it simple. Use an olivette and 2 or 3 dropper shot like abbo has mentioned above.
          If it's windy or towing dont be affraid to up the size of the float 3 or even 4 grm to keep it nailed to the deck.

              use an olivet couple no.8 droppers but if it was me how far out is that depth? cause you cud fish a simple 6 whip to hand and at that depth its a lovely slider job for me mate cant beat it, its that depth at patshull 6m out 5 and half meters deep fish the slider further out

                agree with the above, much better to use bigger droppers in that much water and as for the size of float that depends on the depth of water. always best to use an olivette with floats that size though

                    There's always the option of fishing a smaller olivette but adding more droppers which you group up under the olivette if not needed. This helps stop tangles immediately round the olivette itself but also gives you the option of fishing a double bulk rig but using the same shotting pattern as you normally would. Just by moving the droppers round it can create an even more positive rig which will amplify lift bites tenfold. If you use a float shaped like a drennan carbo with a decent body then the float literally 'pops' out of the water when a bream or skimmer picks up the bait.
