Drop Shotting with a little better idea.

by jethro on 30th January 2016 at 04:18 PM
So after a couple of years I've gone from novice to improver, certainly not expert.
I've fished since I was a lad from the late 50s lure fishing to me was totally alien. Though drop shot fishing is relatively a simple way to put a lure where the fish are it's still been a little hit and miss how I was fishing

The penny dropped for be before Christmas whilst watching the World Predator classic on Sky sports.
The Classic is a lure competition in which the competitors

KJS pond 2 slow sinking bomb.

by jethro on 9th September 2015 at 03:45 PM
I've had a quite enjoyable time at the snake (pond 5) KJS Aston Springs for around five years.
This year however I've had a total change from the snake to pond 2, methods I've used have been; bomb and pellet, method feeder, slider and slow sinking bomb.
I got some good information regarding pegs that may be comfortable for me from Tony the bailiff and a few ideas of what may work, being super cautious and knowing my abilities there's no way I was going to risk my pole so decided to

Drop shot fishing.

by jethro on 18th November 2014 at 05:56 PM
This all started by my pal asking me if I knew anything of drop shot fishing one day in the pub, I was truly stumped but said I'd look into it.

For anyone who doesn't know it's a method of lure fishing for in my case for Perch. The method involves basically fishing a lure with a weight resting on bottom and imparting motion to the lure by twitching the rod tip at the same time moving the rig slowly by a very slow retrieve.

Now me being me I decided after a few trips

One hand behind my back.

by jethro on 24th August 2013 at 05:13 PM
After a couple of years hearing of how matches mostly opens but a few clubs are being won with up to and over a 100 lb, so I've been trying to up the amount of what I normally manage to snatch.
Sometimes my catch rate has took a dive but on most days it's up and with the days when the fish really turn up I get the idea I know what I'm trying to do.
On average I decide what tackle to take and limit myself to either pole or feeder to avoid having my wife carry too much,.

One hand behind my back.

by jethro on 13th September 2012 at 05:50 PM
The last match this year fished at Lindholme on Bonsai went not bad for me, I finished with 36lb 12oz for 3rd from peg two.
I fished my normal mini scoop feeder with micros & a banded 6mm pellet for small carp to 2lb. The match was won with 47lb odd, 39lb odd second.
This has been not a bad summer for me fish wise even if the weather has been nasty at times, especially at Aston.
Since breaking a pole section earlier in the year nearly all my time fishing as been spent on
