From what I have found and seen on the odd occasion when the waters clear, with bream they are constantly on the move, seeming to keep to an area. South Walsham board is a good example if mud weighting between the inner and outer broad they appear to use this joining part as a highway between the two. As all ready mentioned pre baiting an area beforehand and keeping this topped up with a swimfeeder holds them in position, using the same baits as mentioned.
This is easier to establish a bed of feed in the broads than on the rivers which tend to flow a bit harder. I guess the bream may head in to the river to feed in the evenings once the traffic subsides, some will graze around the broads, so it’s all a bit of luck and if feeding will attract them.
Tends to be in the winter they seem to hold up in the smaller broads in larger shoals.
