3 AERATOR SWIM
IF I drew this peg in a match my banker would be the aerator.
These offer cover, and if they have been used during the summer, chances are the bottom will have been scoured out below to create a deeper hole for the carp to sit in.
However, even though I know there will be carp under the aerator I won’t ever start there. I’ll spend the first hour catching what I can elsewhere before making the switch. Any carp hiding under the aerator aren’t likely to move until I start fishing for them. When I do, I dob a piece of corn or bread just to see what I can catch. When I have worked out how many fish are down there I’ll feed a very small amount of bait tight to the cover to gauge the response.
Once I start feeding I will do so using a small Kinder pot, dripping in four to six grains of corn and a few pellets and then sitting and waiting for results.
