I’m a fan of squatts – lit­tle baits for big fish

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

I’VE had suc­cess us­ing all the baits that Dr Paul Gar­ner sug­gested for roach, but there was one he failed to men­tion that has worked won­ders for me time and time again.

Ev­ery­body seems to think that squatts are only use­ful for tiny fish on canals, but I have put them to great use when tar­get­ing big redfins and had sev­eral fish clos­ing in on the 2lb mark on them in the past!

I find that us­ing big bunches of them works well, es­pe­cially on heav­ily pres­sured wa­ters where the fish have been caught plenty of times be­fore.

Give them a try this week – hope­fully you’ll end up with a new per­sonal best go­ing in the net. Grant Sut­ton, email
