Deadbaiting questions.

Post  Flyfishin on Tue Oct 04, 2016 6:47 pm

Hi lads,

first post on the forum !

Not sure if this is the right place to post my questions sorry Razz

So I've started now going into pike deadbaiting, I started on a really bad 9ft rod, And I recently Bought a few items A Fox Warrior 2.75 12ft rod and It's a really nice rod to cast with I've also got a E.T backbite alarm with a set of Buzz bars. So Im all set basically, Now my question is I'd like to have two setups a Short distance deadbait rod and a long range rod ( the Fox Warrior rod ) And Im looking for suggests for a Rod under 40 ish pounds, And a decent reel around 40 pounds again! Now I Would like to get another alarm I won't be able to get the same alarm as It wouldn't work, So Im looking for a carp style alarm with a dropback indicator any suggestions?

Thanks FF.

You could just buy another fox warrior that would fish long or short. You could pick up a second hand Shinano bait runner

for 40 and the market is a wash with cheap bite alarms. I hope this is the frist post of many.

I will have a look in my shed tomorrow and let you know. Will have to check out the cost of postage.

A 10,000 for 44 I pay more then that to get one of mine repaired.

Chapmans ok I have had no problem with them. As for the alarms I don't know its how water resistant they are.

hi and welcome.
you could save yourself some money by using a float on your close in rod since casting distance won't be a requirement. it's still one of the best forms of indication to be honest. Twisted Evil

never had a problem with chapmans, i only live 16 mile away though and so just pop into shop in person. if the lake you are fishing is weedy i would use mono not braid due to braid being not as abrasion resistant.

Old Fox ES alarms are always for sale cheap enough second hand at 15 ish and nearly bomb proof. i would say definitely use braid on weedy waters as it cuts through stalks and weed where mono bunches up and you lose fish sometimes. save a little longer for the rod and alarm and get some descent unhooking tools and a good Pike handling mat as a priority. a nice pike safe knotless mesh landing net too if you can.
Good luck.

good advice there,, with regard to the net i prefer the rubberised mesh nets as the trebles don't get caught up in them Cool

I find small smelt or perch stay on and cast better but sprats are cheap and Morrisons sell them Smile
