    A good standard approach for bream fishing is to start by putting in around ten big feeders of your ground bait mix, remember to clip up so you hit the same spot. you can then drop down to a smaller feeder to which I would add some chopped worm and caster, I would start with maggot on the hook, worm is worth trying when the bream move in, corn is another bait that bream love and well worth a try, cocktail baits will also attract fish and combinations are always worth trying.
    Feeder fishing is an active method and you should keep the feeder going in all the time, leaving it no more than 5 minutes at a time between casts I would start fishing with around a 3 foot tail, but be prepared to either lengthen it to allow the bait to have a longer time to drop through the water, or shorten it if you are getting smashed baits and not seeing a bite.

    I've just fished a match on the river huntspill and had a few bream. I find braid the best reel line, I use some Preston titanic which must be 8 seasons old, so it sinks really well now. I always use a 20ft length of 4 of 5 lb mono as a shock leader. This week I used a 0.12mm hooklength, with a 16 drennan super carbon maggot hook. I use a large or medium drennan groundbait feeder. Red worms and red maggots as bait with chopped worm and squatts in the groundbait. My favorite groundbait is VDE gold pro and brown crumb or Sensas Bream 3000 and brown crumb. Always clip up to get to the same spot. And because that braid is so direct pick the rod up and set the hook rather than a sweeping strike otherwise you'll come back without a hooklength. Another tip when playing the fish with braid is just to hold the rod handle at the reel and not with your forearm along the handle as the rod will be more forgiving and you wont get any hook pulls. good luck

    Never been able to get my head round using braid with a 20' mono leader. I know you need a shocker but adding mono seems to defeat the object. A simple bungie on approx 15" works for me no bumped fish and casts further than with leader. If you want added security add a 6" 8lb leader above hook link. No tangles no bumped fish

    if it is a commercial water that is carp fished on a regular basis as well,then fishmeal,or sweetfishmeal groundbaits will be a good groundbait for the feeder,with whatever the main catching baits are mixed in with it.or the method/pellet feeder is a great method alternative to the normal feeder approach.with pellets,mini boilies etc as hookbaits.
