Me and my good friend spend hours trying to get that elusive big bream at night. While we normally get quite a few in the 4-5lb mark from various places on our route in the holiday boat in all the years we've been fishing the broads we just can not get that one big fish of 7-8lb  .Are there actually any fish of that sort of size to be had in the broads or do they top out at around the 5lb mark on average and if so where might we have the best chance of getting such a fish. We had thought of stopping in the middle of a broad at night but have no real idea of which broad to do it in or even if that would be the right tactic ? Any help would very much appriciated

Hi, the simple answer to your question is yes, there are plenty of bigger bream if you target them, night fishing is certainly the preferred method with sweetcorn and worm over a bed of a rich ground bait of crumb dosed with Belgium Brasem flavouring mixed with sweetcorn, chopped worm etc use a large hook with big baits. My favourite places are Brundall, Brammerton and Oulton Broad. If you want to try in the daytime, try Hickling outside the boat channel, not easy fishing but if you find them there are some very good sized fish there.

Thanks Terry will give it a go we normally use Sweetcorn but have used smaller single pieces as we seem to miss quite a few bites. Would you mix hemp and pellets in the groundbait or give them a miss. Sometimes seem top get a few fish them they are gone. Do you think you can over feed them or is it best just to pile it in ?

I normnally mix in whatever Ive got but always a liberal amount of what ever the hook bait is obviously, Hemp, tares even maggots. We usually put a bed down early doors in the area we are going to fish, If the tides running strong you need to take account of this and bait well up stream and put it in very sticky large balls then feeder fish over the top, Bang a few loosish feeders in at the beggining of the session to make sure you have bait in the swim then  more heavily packed ones while fishing but keep retrieving every 20 mins or so to top up unles your catching regularly. I understand you putting small baits on as you will catch more fish but the smaller fish are taking the baits before the bigger les common fish can get to it. Using a big hook and big bait will deter a lot of the smaller fish and give you more chance of catching the bigger ones. I use a large piece of sweetcorn on the shankthen a worm double or triple hooked followed by another piece of corn to lock it in place.
Good luck

Dave

Thanks Dave we will give it a go with bigger hooks and bait etc and see how we get on. Have you ever fished in  Salhouse Broad at night for the Bream . We've always fished at either end on the river but never into the Broad itself?. I know the fish head to the broads at night but we've only ever managed to get them in the rivers not the broads ?

Never heard that one about the bream heading for the Broads at night! Makes you wonder how far the ones in the rivers will go to find a Broad!!! Given that I have had a few slabs in the Broads during daylight hours, believes me to think this may be a fishermans tale methinks!!!

Certainly caught some in Black Horse in the daytime!

I agree with MM I don't believe that the bream head to Broads at night time.
Also be aware that you need two mudweights if you are fishing in the middle of a Broad or you may find that the wind has changed and you are no longer over your groundbait bed..

The EA have proven quite conclusively that where Hoveton Great Broad is concerned that bream head into the Broad at night and into the river during the day. I don't see why this should be any different on other Broads.

I’m beginning to doubt the reading and understanding iability of certain members, where has anyone said that Bream move to the Broads at night? I suggest certain members read the thread again.
