Redworm, redworm and more redworm legered using a cage feeder filled with chopped redworm. Keep the chopped worm in the feeder with a small groundbait plug at either end.

If you put a 1 to 2ft hooklength on and cast out, let the feeder sink on a loose line (ie don't hold the line tight as it sinks) then wind in until you feel the feeder weight. At this point pull the rod tip back for the length of the hooklength so that the hook sits over the chopped worm.

You may also want to add castors to the choped worm to pad it out a bit and possibly even tip the hook with one.

Let us know how you get on,

hi
dave is right but i would also use lobworm for chopping .
also 1/2 lobworm on a 10 or 12 hook tipped with caster can bring a better specimen

tight lines.

Dont forget to use squatts and pinkies! squatts are a great bait for skimmers and bream, i have caught a lot more bream on pinkies than i have on worm! dont get me wrong worms are brilliant but i would use dendras for chopping and then either half dendra or redworm on the hook but pinkies have caught me a lot of bream and esp at this time of year, squats can be a killer bait at this time of year, hope that helps!
