float fishing

  1. Boat Angling / Angling Afloat
    I really enjoy an easy going session on the bass. One of my favourite methods is live prawn on the float or freelined. Simple, effective and a lot of fun.
  2. Bait Discussion
    First time posting on here but looking for advice where i could get live prawns in the tenby area? Not sure if any fishing boats may sell them or are they easy enough to catch? Was thinking a net in the weed around giltar point at low tide? A bait id love to use so any advice would be great.

    Hi, there I've been using fluro on the hook length when using the float and a fluro leader when using the spinning gear and I have had the same phenomena happen. Every time I have had a decent fish on say about 5lb my 15lb fluro breaks just below the leader knot. On the float I'm using 15lb...
