Hello,
I'm coming up for a fishing weekend on the Broads and was hoping someone could tip me off with what baits to use, hook size, line and other general info. I'll be fishing from a cruiser with a float rig probably unless advised otherwise.

thanx

hi

just come back from a 4 day fishing trip, caught nothing on sweetcorn,bread and lunchon meat, with maggots caught loads, no eels but plenty of roach and bream, and a few pikeys on a lure.

Brother caught 2 9lb+ bream on maggots so the biggies are in there.

saw lots of people using worms, but cant say how well they did.

If quiver tipping, use a 1/2-1oz weight, size 10 hook, and sweetcorn as bait - or sweetcorn and bread cocktail. You may have to wait for bites, but they will be from better size roach/bream - or even a good carp - carp go over 40lb on the broads.

If float fishing, use a good size un-weighted float and size 16 hook. Use maggot, small pieces of corn, worm, or bread for bait.

Whip fishing tends to produce better results than rod 'n' line - especially when the fish are very lethargic.

I tried fly fishing once and all I caught was a 5lb Bluebottle.

What ever you fish for - just enjoy it.

Good luck

I don't fish much nowadays but always swore by bronze maggot for bream, feed the swim with bread rusk (the stuff that constitutes the 65% of british sausages which is not meat!) - we used to by it from the butcher in Oulton Broad who made his own very good sausages.


Bread rusk also disintegrates much quicker than most groundbaits and is lower in nutrient so much friendlier to the river
