Method feeder approach results in double figure bream

Stuart Jessop returned to a venue that he hadn’t fished for five years and smashed his bream personal best with this impressive 14lb 10oz specimen.

His only bite of a session at a local Lincolnshire stillwater came after he laid a bed of pellets at 60 yards range and then put his faith in a Method feeder approach.

Scolded pellets around the feeder and then the same bait hair-rigged on a size 10 hook was the winning combination or Stuart, who’s personal best for the species previously stood at 12lb 7oz.

“Carp anglers have started fishing this venue for the last few years and the high-protein bait that’s been going in has really seen the bream start to pile on weight,” said Stuart.
