  • Fishing too deep or too shallow?

    The last couple of times I've fished the Bridgewater canal in Runcorn the wind has been extreme to say the least, and I'm having a problem with bite indication. I've used a plummet and the float is set to the correct depth, however the canal is different depths at just a foot nearer or further. The problem I'm having is that the float is drifting off to one side and dissapearing. All I can think is that im too shallow and the float is being taken by the wind and the bait is being caught on something under the water as its pulled along. Today after seeing the float SLOWLY pull under I pulled out to find a bag on my hook, and that happened 3 times! Any advice would be appreciated.

    Try laying the rig about 3 inches on the bottom, this might help

        try a different float pattern change to one with a shoulder like a small river float or is it you are using to light a float you can also try a back shot if it is to help steady the float
