CEN­TRAL TRACK

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

THE deep­est water in the lake is bang down the mid­dle, 4ft-7ft on av­er­age. Un­for­tu­nately, the flat bot­tom here is of­ten soft and silty.

You can catch here us­ing a few sec­tions of pole with meat and paste, but the cen­tral track is gen­er­ally best left for win­ter if you in­tend fish­ing a full depth rig.

In warm weather, you can tempt fish to feed shal­low, usu­ally be­tween half­way and two-thirds across. This line works well with big heads of fish such as F1s and ide, and one of the finest baits is loosefed casters. It’s worth set­ting up rigs at sev­eral depths from 6ins to 3ft to find where the fish feed best – this of­ten changes through­out the day.
