Here's an idea that I saw in a French hunting & fishing magazine that apparently works very well, and no it's not April 1st icon_smile.gif

When fishing a live or dead bait, an accepted method is to also use a large swimfeeder full of groundbait - breadcrumb, maize, maggots, etc at the same time, on the same rig in the same way that we would use one for normal feeder fishing.

The idea being that the groundbait attracts other fish such as roach & skimmmers which in turn attracts the pike.

Has anyone used it over here or could this be the start of methods new?

Thanks John,

It was certainly a well praised method and one that had resulted in a lot of good fish.
