End tackle/ hook baits
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’.
