Re: Paste pole rigs
Hi mate to add too the good advice thats been given so far. When you plum your depth and you find a good flat spot and have set your depth right try and find the same depth in anther part of your peg, you will give yourself another line to try an be able to rest the swim if it starts to die on you. I think If1sky is spot on with needing a cad pot I make my paste so soft it would be impossible to ship out without one .
One thing I will say is when putting the paste on the hook roll a small ball then use your line like cheese wire to cut through the ball then gently pull the line till the hook rests at the bottom of the paste that way your bait will be in the same place every and your float will be set as you originaly set it. Practice with this method is all it takes watch out for liners and wait till the float shoots under as its very easy to tell the difference between proper bites and liners. Fowl hooking can be common with this method simply because of the soft paste and large hooks employed.
With feeding I put 4-5 pellets with the paste in the pot when shiping out. I like to use my favourte green swim stim as the paste. When I get to my peg my first job is to mix the paste up with lake water added to the groundbait till a wet mix is obtained then leave it while you set up by then it will have absorbed the water and will be ready, I will often put crushed hemp in the paste as well , for me and the venue I fish it makes a BIG difference.
Goodluck with practicing this method mate its great when you suss it out ..............................
