Could someone point me in the right direction please, whilst fishing the pole over the weekend I struggled to hit a lot of bites, I was using a 16 hook and the bait was sweet corn or 6mm pellets. I tried leaving plenty of the hook showing, let the float bury for a little longer but nothing seemed to work. I could hit maybe 1 in 5 bites. Its been a while since I fished the pole (maybe 15 years or so) but I've always used to use a 16 hook with corn no problem. Thanks for your help.
