Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

A GREAT tip when bomb fish­ing is one I picked up off my mate Adam Rooney, and that is to feed be­fore cast­ing!

I put the rod be­tween my legs, feed some pel­lets and cast the bomb right on top of them. This way I know my hook­bait is sit­ting right amid my loose feed.

It’s a sim­ple tip, but in my ex­pe­ri­ence a very ef­fec­tive one that makes a mas­sive dif­fer­ence when fish­ing bomb and pel­let.

If you start to get lots of line bites and the fish won’t set­tle, try feed­ing two pouch­fuls of pel­lets and cast­ing right into the mid­dle of the sec­ond pouch­ful. Then just sit and wait. A large amount of bait go­ing into the swim in one hit seems to set­tle the fish down.
