Just getting back into fishing after a ten year lay off.
Here is my problem fished local 1/2 acre pond twice this week. Catching rudd,roach and tench the problem I am getting is the rudd and roach are taking the sweetcorn on the drop if I manage to get the bait on the bottom I can hook a tench.
The swim is about six feet deep and about fifteen feet across to the reed bed ,I am using a loaded waggler with a no four shot just above the hook length 4lb main line 2.5 lb hook length and a size sixteen b611 hook.

Cheers for any advice Gerry

Try making tiny pva bags of corn and put one on your hook. If you fish slightly over depth your hookbait will be sat in the little pile of corn when the pva dissolves and the roach and rudd wont be able to take it on the drop. Never done it but it should work.

try to cast over the shoal or roach and rudd and then reel into the swim.
or have a dropper shot near the hook to get the bait to the bottom.
alternatively try a boilie or something roach proof

double corn on a size 12 hook [:T]

Their have to be good size roach and rudd to take that on the drop, or fish the lift bite method with a big dropper shot just resting on the bottom.
