I,m planning on doing a few over nights for bream , have never really targeted them this late in the season would you go for a heavy feed tactic or sparse feeding with just lots of scent. I'm in two minds will they be active trying to fatten up for winter or whether they'll just be looking to settle down looking for the odd morsel.

everytime i catch a fish i'm lucky when i blank i'm a hopeless angler.

Hi Terry

 

Spring is my favourite time but have had many great sessions in October.

 

They are starting to put on weight for winter and will feed night times really well. However this year everything is a bit behind. The usual carp big hit hasn't happened yet and I reckon bream will be on it well in to November.

 

If you are on ouse valley pits you will not be far from me.

 

Good luck

 

John

Amount of actual food in the baiting should depend on the size of the fish and (mainly) how many there are. Hard to say otherwise. But either way, I would still go for plenty of volume and get a decent bed of groundbait down. It's a good time of year and looking out of the window right now - mild, muggy, drizzly, overcast, low pressure - if I was bream fishing I'd be rubbing my hands together :)

I have never really targeted Bream very late in the year but I have caught plenty in the depths of winter while fishing for other species to suggest they can and do feed well all year. I am sure some one posted a few years back about delibertly fishing for them in late Autumne and Winter in the Lee valley pits. He did not seem to stick around on the forum for long but his posts on the subject where interesting but I can't remeber whether he fed heavy or not.

 

Terry you probably know my default is to feed heavy so my advice will always come with that in mind but if your Bream plans are for the next few weeks and there are plenty of fish in the venue then I would put "a bit" in. The water tempertures seem surprisingly high at the moment (in the south, anyway) so I would expect them to be on the feed. I am almost exclusively fishing for predators at the moment but if fishing for other species then I would still not have gone over in to winter mode as it is just so mild at the moment. So if confident of numbers of fish being present then I would not be scared of feeding them. It does get more tricky with low stock big Bream but you know all that from your Wingham monster a few years back.

 

Good luck Terry.
