When targeting bream on mixed fisheries, knowing what to feed and where to fish for them can be a deal breaker. Here are six tips to give you a head start...
Bank on the long line
The further out you can fish, the better. Pick a comfortable distance where the lake is at its maximum depth.
Pick a suitable float
In good weather I fish a 0.3g PPF Slim with a strung bulk of shot. In a wind, I change to a 0.4g Chimp-style pattern.
Once I’m catching I wet the mix up to make it heavier and more stodgy. I’ll add a little chopped worm and caster too.
Use a small pot
On cold mornings I feed positively with a big pole cup and trickle in pellets or a little groundbait with a Kinder pot.
Mix worm and caster
My worms are chopped quite roughly. The ratio of caster to worm is around 3:1 so the worm acts only as a taster.
Elastic for bream
Preston’s blue Hybrid elastic will land everything except big carp. For silverfish and bream, it works brilliantly.
