TAR­GET SMALL SPOTS

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

RATHER than us­ing a throw­ing stick or a large Spomb to bait large ar­eas, be­fore cast­ing two or three rods over the top of it, try bait­ing small spots and hav­ing just one rod on each.

Carp are used to find­ing lit­tle pock­ets of nat­u­ral food on the lakebed, of­ten among light weed and other de­tri­tus, and will be far less likely to spook away from such spots than they would a ten­nis court-sized area of colour­ful boilies!

Bait tightly and ac­cu­rately with a small spod or, if it’s close-in, by hand. It’s a tac­tic that works on every venue in the land. And, if your spot is in the mar­gins and you’re wor­ried about carp bump­ing into your line, use a small back­lead to keep ev­ery­thing pinned firmly to the deck.
