im annoyed with the all the little rudd and roach "pecking" my bait away.. i am fishing the pellet waggler about 1 foot deep mostly and i use sonubaits new fibre paste, (i know mixed reviews on this product but it has worked well for me) anyway the problem i have is the paste has been nibbled away before the big stuff can get to it any tips on dettering the little fish?[:H]

feed the swim for a while before putting a baited hook in the swim, hopefully the larger fish will have moved in to see what the smaller ones are feeding on and muscle them out, keep the loose feed going in the same when you have cast in to keep them interested[:T]

failing that, use a bait thats bigger than their mouths [:0]

I was using meat on my club water the other day, and using baits that you would have thought were too large, but it's amazing what the little blighters will swallow...tough going[:0]
