Distance out was no more than 9', depth of bait to float was no deeper than 6'. Bait used, frozen sandeel.

The advantage of using float techniques is that you can drift a bait close by obstructions and that way tempt a fish out. Believe me whe I sy that. At one session at Marloes, a few of us were fishing within feet of kelp and we kept on getting pollack over 1lb.

Not all fish are at the horizon.

During this type of weather, very rarely I take my Century Carbon Metal out, the heaviest rod I take is a bass rod, I go even light some times when there are very little snags so that I can have fun with fishing.

My biggest bass last year of 5 1/2lb was cuaght under the float at a distance of 6 feet and a depth of 3'. You will be surprised how oftem people overcast fish. I know that they are at a distance sometimes, but not all the time!
