hello everyone, i know i have asked this question before, more than once, but can anyone figure out what im doing wrong when trying to pump lug at greatstone/littlestone. its not that im not getting any but just that i seem to be going backwards in my progress. the first time i tried pumping lug with my matchmans pump was last winter when i managed to pump 70+ lug at my first attempt which i was told was pretty good. since then i have only managed about 60 at best which was a few weeks ago on the very high tides we had then. i have just got back from greatstone with only 40 lug for my efforts in three hours pumping. the thing is that im getting lots of tails and sometimes just guts coming up which isnt good i know but i have tried everything ive been advised which includes slacking off the pumps pressure and trying different depths that i push the pump in but cant get any consistency. ive tried going into the hole at an angle but have not yet had a single worm this way. i normally go straight down the cast between 2 and 6 inches and push the pump at the same time as pulling the handle and have been lubricating with wd40. i can sometimes go 20 minutes without a single worm then might get 4 or 5 in ten pumps. whats going on there? i have never expected to get good at this quickly but i also didnt expect to get worse as i went on either. because i cant find any consistency in my pumping, i also cant figure out what im doing wrong. can anyone help. im even willing to pay someone for a lesson if anyone is interested as its going to cost me a few quid for a syrup otherwise. cheers people!
