If you could only use one method??????

Post  lowdouble on Tue Dec 04, 2018 5:03 pm

God forbid we were limited to using just one style of fishing Shocked What would your preferred, not necessarily most succesful method be and what tackle would you use? Just trying to liven the forum up a little Wink

Mine is drifter fishing from a boat, 3.5lb TC rod, 70lb floating braid, a big pit reel so 200yds is easy reached and a big fat livebait lol (Illegal over here by the way) Evil or Very Mad

Ledgered dead baits, Billy Backbiters primed and ready, sitting back with a brew in my hand chilling out and enjoying my surroundings and the wonderful wildlife I'm fortunate to see along the way.

Managed a picture of a Kingfisher perched on my rod a couple of years ago when night fishing for Catfish, not the best photo I've ever taken as I was rushing to capture it whilst hiding in my bivvy.

Mine would have to be live bait under a nice fat pike float free roving Very Happy With a up trace of course Wink Very Happy Very Happy  Can't beat seeing the float bob about as the bait swims about and then seeing it bobbing just before it slips away as a pike of unknown size takes it Very Happy  As your heart misses a beat as you grab the rod and pull into it with great expectations well it could be a twenty or even a thirty  lol but more likely about 10lb lol As I seem to catch more smaller pike on live bait Shocked Maybe the bigger one's are a bit more wary Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Float ledger comes close second with a fox pencil float set so there's about 1inch showing Very Happy Very Happy  I love to see the float pop up lay flat and then slip away leaving your heart in your mouth lol Very Happy Very Happy

There is something about watching a float waiting to see it bob and then go under. Magical

Ive done nearly zero top water fishing Mal. But watched lots on youtube lol. I would have a heart attack Wink The closest i have been is trolling 30cm line thru trout along the surface and seeing a 16lb pike become airborn with the lure in its mouth, it just looked like those great whites hitting the seals. Magical Very Happy

Hard to choose but definitely watching a float dip and bob with a live bait underneath during the colder months and nothing beats a jitterbug wobbling along the surface waiting for that explosion!!
