WHAT DEPTH?

Angling Times (UK) - - THE COACH -

It’s rare to find more than a few feet of depth around an is­land, so fish­ing shal­low gives me no ad­van­tage. In­stead, I try and set the wag­gler so that the hook­bait just touches the bot­tom, with no shot down the line on the rig for a nat­u­ral fall of the bait.

That way, most of my bites hap­pen within sec­onds of the float hit­ting the wa­ter. Only on windy days will I set the wag­gler slightly deeper to deal with any tow cre­ated. Flick­ing the rod-tip sharply to sink the line also helps on windy days.
