6 A BRIL­LIANT bait combo at this time of the year, worm and caster will catch just about any fish that swims. Most an­glers would fish these baits on the pole, but they work equally well fished on a light wand of a rod and a tiny feeder cast tight to is­lands and down the edge.

Don’t chop your worms too finely. Leave the pieces about three-quar­ters of an inch long for a more sub­stan­tial feed. You can use a small block­end feeder, but I pre­fer to use a small cage and block off each end with a small quan­tity of red ground­bait.

Try a half-worm and caster cock­tail on the hook.

CHOPPED WORM Don’t chop the worms too fine. Pieces around three-quar­ters of an inch long are about right.

HOOK­BAIT Half a worm on the hair and a caster on the hook is a com­bi­na­tion hook­bait few fish species can re­sist.
