3 rods were placed on the ledge of the island in around 4 ft of water. These were baited with a new greengage boilie we are currently field testing. This was placed into a PVA bag of mixed pellets. The other two rods were placed just the other side of a weed section about 25 yards out and featured a hi viz snowman pop up on a long shank size 6 hook to 360 rig on one rod and a bottom fished Tiger nut bait on the other. 4-5 kg of my own spod mix was trickled in to this spot over the whole day.
