Set the rig
You’ve now found the depth you require and it’s time to work out how you want your hookbait to sit on the deck. I always have the hookbait just touching the bottom but the contours will dictate my next move. If I am fishing on a flat bottom I will plumb up so that the bottom of the bristle is showing when the plummet hits the deck. If I am on a slope where the depth is constantly changing I will plumb up to the bottom of the body. This makes sure the hookbait is always on the deck where the bigger fish will lie. As for feeding, little and often by a pot is best. Drop in a few bits of bait after every fish or if bites dry up and you’ll still draw in fish without overfeeding them.
On a slope, plumb to the base of the float so the hookbait is always touching the deck
On a flat bottom, plumb so that you can just see the base of the float bristle
