TAR­GET SILT AND LIGHT WEED

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

IF ALL the an­glers on your lake are tar­get­ing the clear, grav­elly ar­eas, the fish will soon wise up to this and as­so­ci­ate such spots with dan­ger.

So, try tar­get­ing the slightly silty, weedy ar­eas with a rig made to suit, such as a pop-up or a chod rig. Carp are used to grub­bing about for their food, so don’t be fooled into think­ing that your bait needs to be on a hard, clean area for the fish to find it.

If the weed is a lit­tle too thick for fish­ing a pop-up or bot­tom bait, try us­ing a solid PVA bag, which en­sures per­fect pre­sen­ta­tion.
