How long in one swim

Post  plumb68 on Thu Feb 02, 2012 8:23 pm

After loads of trips and only 3 pike landed and one lost at the net, 3 of them were hooked while chucking a lure about now and then while dead baiting,

So im gonna just take a lure rod on saturday and see how i do, but how long would you spend in one swim, and how many different lures would you try in that swim before moving on.

What I always do is cover the whole area in a fan pattern first one way then the other with a top water lure. I then change the lure and do the same with a mid water lure. Once ive covered the area twice with two different lures I will move along and try again. I would have at least three top water lures and half a dozen others in my pockets.

How long in One Swim

Post  aaronlee on Thu Feb 16, 2012 8:42 am

I usually spend about 20 mins in each swim, and also fish a selection of lures at different depths depending on time of day i.e if first thing in morning (especially in winter) or if very cold, and will start with sinking lures and work my way up the water column as the day gets brighter but this does depend on depth of water as I fish deep waters the pike in my pits seem to follow the roach up the water column so by mid morning and evening (when you can see the roach topping out or near the surface) I will be trying med divers and surface lures. This seems to give me a good catch rate even if they arenít all big fish. Weather/Brightness of light also helps me take a fair guess what the pike and Perch will be doing.

You have to look ar each swim in 3D and decide which lures will cover all depths, the terrain, snags, weeds, liklihood of holding a said number of fish and so on.

It's not about time. It's about making sure you've covered that swim as best you can for it's given potential and that generally comes with experience.
