Some­thing dif­fer­ent does the trick


It’s an old say­ing now that we all have ac­cess to the best tackle and baits, but it’s how we use those things, which makes the dif­fer­ence. Of course, there is no right or wrong way to ap­proach any sit­u­a­tion and ev­ery week and ev­ery day can be dif­fer­ent, but, if you are pre­pared to try some­thing out of the or­di­nary, it can pay div­i­dends. At the start of the week Di­eter Men­ten had firm plans in his head when he vis­ited the Cu­bic Iles venue in France. His idea was to cre­ate a large baited area in the cen­tral part of his swim and just wait for the fish to move in and have a feed. How­ever, not all plans work out and af­ter a few days had passed, it was be­com­ing ob­vi­ous that the orig­i­nal plan wasn’t quite as good as it first looked. To change things up, he placed one rod well off the baited area, with just a few Krill boilies around it. And guess what, the next morn­ing at 6.30am that rod rat­tled off with this 52lb 7oz mir­ror on the end.
