14 fished.  Commons, mirrors and F1s caught on pole and pellet and maggot feeder.

  • Peg 4
  • 34lb
  • 4th
  • 2nd in section

Still haven't got this pellet fishing sorted, I’m missing a couple of vital fish in order to more me into a frame place!   Last couple of matches I have struggled to maintain a steady stream of fish.........

  • I'm unsure if to feed one line, gets exhausted more start another fresh line, then move onto another.
  • Rotating between two lines, feed one and then fish other and rotate, this gives the fish time to settle (have been doing this and feel this isn't 100% correct)
  • How much to feed?  To each bite or fish? 
  • Do you feed ten, fifteen, twenty, etc 4mm pellets? 
  • Is micro’s better for these new stocky fish? 
  • "Pinging pellets on top" (fish coming to noise, but can bring them up-in-the-water and you can over do it i.e. feed too much)
Generally speaking more positive feeding will result in more carp, Manor has a large head of carp, but today I only had one.  Also speaking to other anglers not many carp fed today.  Micro’s did result in a few missed bites once the carp was feeding on Middle's match on Saturday, but I felt that the micro bought more small F1's into the peg or encouraged them to feed, but when the carp feed I missed a couple of bites, and therefore only fed 4mm's and began to connect with the bites.  But them missed bites maybe have cost me section win.
