Sounds like the kind of place where maggots could work. Used with hemp and corn or similar to keep the fish grubbing around?Yeah that's the things. Venue I have in mind is Bells Mill Specimen Pool - has 100 big Carp over 20lb and that's it. And then there's always Himley Hall and Kingsnordley nearby.... at Himley I wouldn't mind if hook a few Tench. I find a similar thing with Barbel fishing, people highly recommend maggots or casters as bait but I have tried Worm for example, and it just gets smashed with rattles on the tip by small fish with no Barbel.
Even if you catch Tench all day that's not a bad thing. My favourite species
