Another great day fishing yesterday. Still have not solved the foul hooking problem had a mare in truth. Landed 11 decent fish in the margins, but hooked and lost 4 foul hooked fish. I took advice and feed little just size 4 pellets and 8mm on the hook for extra weight. When a fish was caught another 10x4mm and 3 x8mm really small amounts. I did have the lake almost to myself that may have made a difference. Float took 5 number 8s 4'' from the hook and finally I fish ultra short between the pole tip and float maybe 4/5'' that did help a bit, as fish hooked themselves or spooked off. Just to make it worse I lost 2 floats and rig. Mainline was 2lb tiger than hook-link. Must have the float around a fin or tail? Does this happen to other people? Do you lose floats too?
