THE EX­PERT’S VIEW

Angling Times (UK) - - NEW FOR 2017 -

RE­CENTLY I’ve had suc­cess with a cou­ple of tricks to en­hance and ac­ti­vate my free of­fer­ings be­fore fish­ing. Any ex­tra edge dur­ing the sum­mer will help to put a few more fish on the bank.

I’ve al­ways been a big fan of get­ting my freezer baits out of the freezer a cou­ple of days be­fore a ses­sion. That way, all the ac­tive in­gre­di­ents in the bait are work­ing fully by the time I reach the lake. As the baits are thaw­ing out, I like to use that old-time favourite ‘LO30’. How­ever, now I use the bril­liant Tuna LO30 from CC Moore.

This com­ple­ments my Pa­cific Tuna freezer bait per­fectly and builds on the al­ready pow­er­ful food sig­nals the bait gives off.

I keep the fish guess­ing by us­ing lots of dif­fer­ent size boilies (10mm, 15mm and 18mm) as I feel this can cause enough con­fu­sion to get you a bite. Pick­ing up the dif­fer­ent shapes and sizes means that the fish don’t be­come ac­cus­tomed to the weight and feel of any par­tic­u­lar free of­fer­ing.

Give it a try, I’m a big be­liever!

AD­DI­TIVE

While the freezer baits are thaw­ing out I add some of the new CC Moore Tuna LO30 for added at­trac­tion.

DIF­FER­ENT-SIZED BOILIES

Mix­ing up 10mm, 15mm and 18mm boilies means the fish don’t as­so­ci­ate any one size with dan­ger, and will hap­pily browse over them all.
