    Hi Billy and welcome to the site.
    You may not be the only one using a rod, some may change during the match at some point. Now as you dont own a pole your best option is going to be the method fished on the same line the regulars are pole fishing. If that means chucking it to within a foot or so of the island then so be it, clip up and you will be fine. Use a large cage feeder to get a bit of bait down 1st just like the pole anglers will be doing with their cupping kits, then fish the method on top. It may be hard to compete against the pole anglers but you never know it could throw things in your favour.
    Let us know what the lake is and someone on here may be able to help you further.
    Have a good match.
