I’m not a great fan of snag fishing and certainly would not consider sleeping while the rods are close to them. You can imagine how I felt, when on a recent trip to Alder Lake in France I located most of the lakes population in the heavy snags alongside the point forming a large shallow bay in the lake.
I had to get them out!
I loose fed a line of Surf n Turf boilies into the snags running towards the end of the point, and then laid a line of boilies into the centre of the bay. The plan was to lure the carp into an area where I was happy to hook them.
One rod went onto the end of the point then the other into the open water in the centre of the bay.
I had a few liners in the night and then early next morning the point rod flew off quickly followed by the bay rod. This pattern was repeated for the next three mornings.
All the fish hooked were landed and any damage that the snags could have caused avoided.
Surf n Turf certainly has some pulling power!
