Description: Fishing shallow can be one of the most productive ways of fishing on any commercial water. The depth you fish will depend on how warm the water is or even how much the fish are feeding. The best depth to start with this method is just over a foot deep and then it is just a matter of trial and error, you may have to go a few inches deeper or a few inches shallower its just a matter of finding what depth the fish are at. the best rig to use for this method is a small dibba float or a blob on the pole, its also possible to fish with no float this is then called a free line but you must hold the bait steady to present it correctly. you will need to be fishing a minumum of 11 metres out to get the fish feeding on the top as they get more weary the closer to the bank you fish. a good bait for this method is a 4mm banded pellet or a hooked caster. the secret to this killer method is to keep a constant flow of feed going in over your bait, e.g about 20- 30 pellets every minute or so, this will get the fish off the bottom and get them feeding closer to the surface, you will get more of a feel of the feeding pattern when you get started as it will just depend on how many fish are in your swim at the time, but the more practice you get with this method the better you will get and when you get it right you will get them greedy carp nearly jumping out the water to take your bait. This is an absolute killer method especially during the summer months, anyway, try it, i think youll like it. Thanks Lee
