Generally speaking peole have the impression that carp don’t take of the surface in France. This is of course rubbish. However this idea means that very few people try…. those that do may give it a go but soon get discouraged and give up.
On most waters it takes time for the fish to get switched on to a floating bait and recognise it as food. It will therefore take some perseverance from your part at Hideaway to get them going on floaters…. To my knowledge no one has taken fish off the top there, but this doesn’t mean it can’t be done.
I would suggest that you take some floating pellets (to my mind far better than dog biscuits) and when you find some fish on the surface you feed continually until they start to take them…I’d use a small pop up as the hook bait as it is far easier to put on a hook than either pellets or biscuits
If you persist I reackon on this type of water it will work….most people will site happily all week with a boilie out, but how many continue all week with a floater out…
