As I’m new to all fishing please can you tell me when float fishing for carp in ponds do you always make sure your bait reaches the bottom or is it possible to catch them at any depth?
Thanks for your query. It’s normal to present the bait on the bottom unless you are prepared to constantly trickle feed in over the float to get the fish taking on the drop – it is then possible to catch at different depths. If you fish this way then a very slow sinking bait is best such as pellet etc.
Have a look at the Quest Baits web site and you can get some very good hints and tips from Shaun Harrison.
