hi andy  was that anchored up and bait float fished on the bottom or trolled behind the boat  Very Happy the reason I ask this Andy is because I have found large numbers of bait fish at 50ft plus in nice looking areas , would you fish these static under a float..... even at these depths or would it be better to troll a bait through these areas , never really fished a float set up over 30ft with a dead bait hard on the bottom , what's your thoughts on this ........ Very Happy

I was anchored at the top of the shelf in about 35ft. A float legered deadbait set at about 45ft was casted into the deeper 60ft depths and allowed to drop back onto the ledge / shelf. I set the other rod on a drifter set at 35ft and just let a few yards of line out so i guess the bait was suspended 5 to 10ft off the bottom. The Shoal of bait was huge!!!!! maybe 50yds long and 25ft deep in places, all sat at 40ft down Wink 2 fish to each method mate if that helps at all Wink

these bait fish shoals were also huge andy , I was in to minds to suspend the baits or fish hard on the bottom but I think suspended would be the better option and yes a drifter that moves the bait through the zone makes sense, only fished this water twice and mapping out the water on every visit found some cracking drop off and ledges but this water has some horrendous snaggy areas , but looks promising santa rendeer santa

it makes sense the bait fish are in deeper water in the cooler months ,so that's should be where the pike are , another point I have been bothered about is the anchoring , do you use 2 anchors Andy and what type to you recommend, having problems with the boat drifting about causing tangling if you don't watch out , think it would involve faffing about but well worth it don't you think. What a Face

anchoring is an art form lol, Ive tried, and own about 12 of the sodding things, but now i have the best setup I think. for soft silty limestone bottoms i use a 7.5kg bruce/plough type anchor off the front of the boat. Lower it down from the bow and as it touches bottom, reverse back slowly and let out 3 times the length of rope as the water the anchor is in. When tied off, leave the engine in gear and lower the back mudweight at the stern. I use 36lb lead weight for the Orkney, and a 28lb butchers weight for the lough boat. drop it so it plugs into the silt and tie off to the stern. you obviously sway a little bit but its as stable as i can get a boat anyway Wink
