THE RIGHT FEEDER SIZE
WITH the water being cold and clear due to the time of year I didn’t feel that boshing a big feeder in with lots of bait was ever going to work.
For me it was all about Nisa mini and micro plastic cage feeders.
As a rule I kicked off with the mini version as the fish tended to feed early. I switched to the micro feeder later in the match as the fish became spooky and bites started to slow up.
In effect this was a very negative approach, but due to the numbers of fish I caught it gave me a positive outcome.
A little word about feeder weights – normally, to catch quickly, I like heavy 44g feeders but with the water being cold and clear I felt this would spook the fish. Instead I dropped down to 28g and 20g feeders to try and minimise the disturbance every time one hit the water.
