Hard mouthed bream!!

Post by sweetbreams on Tue Oct 02, 2012 10:43 pm

Hi fella's I'm after large bream on the method feeder and been picking up a few but I've noticed that a few of these fish are barely hooked I'm using a size 10 wide gape hook to a 4-6" coated braid link simple knotless knot stripped back to leave a bit of movement around the hook. I'm fishing at longe range 120yrds or so worried about losing a big fish with these light hook holds! Wondered if you've got any rig tweaks that may help improve the hook holds ..

What bait are you using? Is there enough room between bait and hook for it to get sucked in properly

I've tried longer links 9/12 " Same hook holds bait wise boilies, pellets corn etc . I've gone up to size 8 hook and as small as a 14 same results. These large bream have hard mouths lips are carp like think they feed over hard gravel alot..

Forgot mention I've also messed about with the length of the hair and bait sizes all my hooks are sticky sharp . Also using fast taper rods so line pick up on take is not an issue!

Try using a mag aligner or some tubing, it might help.
