i use a small treble hook just as u would for pike fishing because using pike bait chances r u will eventually hook one.Lamprey is the only bait i have had any success with i think its because its so potent and oily but give it a go and see

Palmer, a word of warning using trebles can be dangerous if used for any species but pike. If theres a breakage the treble can stitch the throat up causing slow starvation and death. I would recommend singles and using a baiting needle to thread the line thru the lamprey section. Alternatively a pennel rig could be used just as effectively.
Small sections of sardine have been used on still waters for years to target the big chub.

chill out go fishing

Ican vouch for lamprey for Chub ,We used to go down to Lincombe Weir below Stourport on Severn .A mate used get to whole lamrey's we used to wade out to the island in the middle of the River had some lovely bag's of Chub virtually a fish a chuck.But this 35yrs ago don't know wether it would work today or if the Chub are still there.
