HOTSPOT FOR CHUB

Angling Times (UK) - - TIP & TACTICS -

CHUB love to sit just out of the main cur­rent, ready to spot food items car­ried their way by the flow. ‘Crease’ swims, points where fast water meets slow, can be pro­duc­tive – chub will sit in the slow water ready to dart out and grab a meal.

Try a static bait fished to the edge of the crease, us­ing a bomb or small mag­got or cage feeder and a size­able bait that the fish can’t fail to miss. Three or four mag­gots are good if small fish aren’t prob­lem, oth­er­wise a lob­worm, a piece of bread­flake or a 10mm hal­ibut pel­let will do the job. Use the feeder to get some bait down be­fore you be­gin to fish. A wag­gler, stick or Avon float can also work, trot­ting a bait down past the slack.

You can loose­feed, but make sure it goes in well up­stream so it hits bot­tom where the fish are. Mag­gots, cast­ers or pel­lets are good feeds.
