Sat 27th went to Shardlow Marina from 2-6 with 2 pike rods.
1) Ledgered 1/2 roach and 2inch lamprey sections
2) Float fished dead float then livebait.
Results: No bites on the float, 3 definite bites on the ledgered roach, but just knocks, no solid runs
Sun 28th 2-5 Stke Bardolph started in the same spot Glynn had all the action, last time we went.
Then leap frogged up towards the outflow every 20-30 mins.
1) Ledgered 1/2 roach and 2-3inch lamprey sections with lighter Barbel rod
2) Float fished paternostered small lamprey section and roach.
Results: No bites on the float, 1 or 2 possible bites on the ledgered roach/lamprey, but just knocks, no solid runs again :-(
Tactics next time: Touch ledger at shardlow with very light setup and fresh dead bait with 1 rod.
May have to use very low resistance rigs on both rods.
