Hi Guys and Girls,

I am doing a session on sandy the weekend. I have never fished it before.

Can anyone offer any advice or suggestions about this water with regards to baits, methods, swims etc...

hi carpgirl

do a search ,plenty of info about the Hurst. swims 1-10 fishing well. most of the fish comming out on boilies, good frozen fishmeals are best . hope this helps

Cheers Dave,

Is there any particular boilie that seems to be doing well at the moment. Does the method work well on Sandhurst?

carpgirl, would defo give the method a try, had some success with it on sandy a while back, especially with the weed in there at the mo, using the method you can cast straight into it http://www.rmcangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif
Best of luck!

going baits are essential b5, mainline fusion and mainline maple 8.....method can be a winner, but probably no more effective than bags or single hookbaits....if the weather holds, which it looks like it is going to and swim 1 is free when you arrive....get in there....shallowest area of the lake and the fish get right in alongside the adjacent non-fishing bank. fish for one fish at a time - no real success off spodded areas in recent months...though particle far more effective than pellet if that's an approach you favour. look for the gullies.....when all else fails a glugged single hookbait placed in one of these had me more than a few this spring....

no probs , mainline m8 and fusion are doin well also YAC 's own baits(asap & squirrel) are used quite a lot (by me! http://www.rmcangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/smirk.gif). method can work well at the hurst but you might pull in the bream which can be murder http://www.rmcangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/frown.gif .unless you like getting up every hour to unhook a snotty!! http://www.rmcangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Single hookbaits work quite well too.... Seem to sort out the better fish.
