End tackle/ hook baits

Anglers Mail - - Front Page -

Through­out the week­end I stuck with size 14 Ka­masan B560 hooks to 700 mm hook lengths of 0.16 mm Garbo Line.

By far the best hook bait was two float­ing red mag­gots. Most an­glers know that just cov­er­ing a hand­ful of mag­gots with wa­ter in an es­cape-proof lid bait box will give you float­ing hook­ers within 20 min­utes… but few will know that a splash of Coca-Cola or lemon­ade will speed up the process. I hardly ever drink fizzy pop, but al­ways take a can to boost my float­ing mag­gots!

Worms were the best change bait, es­pe­cially for the big­ger bream, with two pieces of den­drobaena bring­ing me sev­eral big skim­mers and a cou­ple of proper ‘slabs’.
