Because we had such a good day here last time we decided to fish this venue again after our day off.
This time the wind seemed a bit stronger, and as we had seen Phil's good feeder weight, I opted for a feeder only day today.
I only set up one feeder rod, my Preston Competition Pro 12' medium feeder rod, with a Preston Centris NT420 reel loaded with 4lb Dave Harrell feeder mono.
Hook-length was the pre-tied Preston N30 to 0.13 mm Reflo Power line. The line was shortened from 1 m down to 60 cm and I was ready to go. I get all my hook-lengths ready-tied from Hengelsport Kruidenier in Haaksbergen. I highly recommend that you try these ready-tied hooks.
VDE Black Earth and Zammataro Roach & Skimmers Cloud Natur was my groundbait - the same as every day.
Casters, chopped-worm and dead maggots went into the groundbait and through the feeder.
Bites came fairly quickly and after about 20 minutes I had my first Bream. As long as there were chopped worms going through the feeder I would catch Bream - but you could put anything on the hook. Most of the day I used double white maggot to catch the fish.
If there wasn't enough chopped-worm in the feeder I would start catching the smaller Skimmers and Gusta.
This was without doubt a good days feeder fishing for me - one of the biggest feeder weights I've had in recent years. In fact, it was on the Voorne Canal in 2019 that I last fished a feeder rod. I love pole fishing just too much :-)
I now have a lead of 18 lb 2 oz going into the last day on the Veen Canal. Fingers crossed.
