A little and often baiting approach produces over fifty fish throughout the winter and spring!
Consistency in your angling through the colder months and into the spring can be very tricky to achieve. It requires an awful lot of effort and perseverance as an angler to gain excellent results. One such angler who managed to achieve this feat was Tom Loraine. He notched up an impressive haul throughout the winter and spring.
He racked up over 50 fish ranging from 20lb up to 37lb with a mixture of very interesting characters from linears to leathers, old gnarly scaly ones to dark golden commons, he had them all!
Tom fished a mixture of Manilla White One pop-ups and homemade Krill cork ball pop-ups to get the bites.
Tom told Sticky:
“I’ve had a great late winter into spring by keeping the bait going in. Using Manilla freezer baits in both 12 and 16mm with lots of Bloodworm pellets to keep them rummaging around.
“I kept the bait going in ever since Autumn over two areas and consistently taken fish off of both spots during this time. Moving between the areas depending on the weather, pressure and sun hours during the day.”
