        Never heard of it!!

        Ok, bottom lake is very much edge fishing... fished it 3 weeks ago and caught 1 fish pellet wag then margins

        i fished groundbait and 6/7 maggots on the hook but the fish are fed on bread

        also a 'have a look' line is 5-7 mtrs out on corn

          Cheers for that

          What was your set up mate?

          Dead reds?

          Did you feed much

          Is it worth taking any bread

            I pulled peg 5 on grebe.. behind the van (left) over hanging tree to left and long rush bed right

            I chucked pellet method half way (its tight with other side close) but very small skimmers then chucked waggler 2ft deep had 1 first chuck. 8lb

            left i had 2ft of water right a bit deeper in front its 8ft @ 7mtrs the fish are a very good stamp average

            I fished same rig left right changing depth 7lb guru.. 4x12 float.. size 14 guru mwg but i would go 16 now as colder

            black hydro.

            cupped level pot of groudbait every 20mins both sides.. the gaffer actually came noticed i was on the wag.. called me a numpty and said down the edge.. after 1hr !!! i did think a bit early ... first put in had 7lber 2nd 5lb cupped in looked the other side had 7lber then kept swapping as i hooked.. netted or lost fish. possibly lost 40lb dead reds yes

            Bread. the only reason i say this is i know the buy chucks loafs in to feed the fish when he knows anglers have not been on it ... i did see the odd fish trying to take leafs which shown they are looking but i dont know how you would go about using this info .. possibly a big punch on the bottom due to weather change!?

            hope this helps
