I set up to fish the pole at 13m and 7m for Skimmers and Bream, A feeder rod for the method and when clipping up with a bomb I felt Carp in the upper layers so out came the pellet waggler rod too.
After feeding the 13m line with 2 balls of groundbait with micros and 1 ball of the same plus a few grains of corn at 7m I tried the pellet waggler. On the first chuck I foul hooked and lost a carp, nothing then for a while then "wound into one" which I managed to land and it was a double.
I tried different depths, casting alot, letting it hang for longer, different feeding patterns but although there were fish around they were certainly not feeding.
Onto the pole lines and surprisingly could barely muster a bite on either line, at 1.30pm on the 7m line I had 5 Skimmers in 5 puts on corn but then nothing again.
I only managed to nick an odd further skimmer here and there on the pole despite trying a few tricks like fishing meat off bottom.
My 19lb was 6th best on the match.
