Smaller lakes may offer you the chance to cast across to the far bank or, if you are on an end peg, down to the end bank. Both places will be much the same in terms of contours and features. It’s effectively like having a far-bank margin, except that this spot will produce fish much earlier than the edge close to your own bank.
Fish will seek this distant area for sanctuary, especially if it’s busy on the bank, and can be caught early in the day before the swim begins to fade.
To reach the distance, the feeder is the only sensible tactic to fish. Generally, on a commercial, that means the pellet or Method variety.
Both will put the hookbait just inches from the pile of feed deposited by the feeder, with the Method being the easier to fish. Dampened micro pellets are wrapped around a lightish 20g flatbed inline feeder (groundbait can be added to the pellets if you wish) with a banded 6mm hard pellet on the hook.
Cast regularly, say every three minutes, to build up some feed. The noise as the feeder hits the water can draw carp into the peg, so cast to the same spot every time for the first couple of hours. As the day wears on, having the odd chuck to the left or right can pick off carp that have begun to back away from the main area.
