  1. Yes I think you are right, some of them I did have the feeling I was too eager to set. Thanks for the input Crucian I will give that a go next time I'm at the spot!
  2. [SORRY ABOUT THE MUSIC, PLEASE MUTE THE CLIP] I can't edit my post for some reason so here is a more organised list of clips: Sinking strikes: sinking strike success sinking strike success sinking strike success sinking strike failure sinking strike failure sinking strike failure sinking strike failure sinking strike failure sinking strike failure sinking strike failure sinking strike failure sinking strike, wait, failure. mid sinking strike failure Rising strikes: rising strike success rising strike failure Popup strikes: popup strike failure popup strike failure Laying flat strikes: laying flat failure
  3. So I've recently got the bug for float fishing after starting as a bottom feeder. I understand the basics of using CTRL + right click to hard set the hook. and also to make sure there is not too much slack in the water. I started around 30% and leveled my way up to 70% with white broadfish at tunguska. They are simple. Set the depth to whatever you like they do not care, 1.5m in 4m depth no problem. They nibble, the float plummets and you strike. 90% of the time you will hook. simple and easy (not suggesting everything should be like that.) Having gotten a little bored of that I tried experimenting with bream who seemed to be more effected by depth, this time the depth needs to be at the bottom. Not so difficult to balance the float so it sits just right above the surface. I found these way more difficult and finding myself struggling to know when to hookset. I gave up after a few hours and catching only a handful and missing many many many hooksets. Moving on a few days I tried my luck at trophy hunting roach at ladoga/sura. same situation as bream. They nibble for longer and it's hard to tell when is the right time to set the hook. The problem here is that it seems to be completely random. I tried many different times to set the hook. and each time with different results. 1. fish nibbles. wait. the float sinks. Strike. no hookset. 2. fish nibbles. wait. the float sinks. wait. strike. no hookset. 3. fish nibbles. wait. fish nibbles faster/stronger. Strike. no hookset. 4. fish sinks the float fast and immediately. Strike. no hookset. 5. fish nibbles. float sways away in a direction. strike. no hookset. 6. fish nibbles. float rises. strike. no hookset. 7. fish nibbles. float rises. float lays flat. strike. no hookset. and all of these seemingly working in the opposite and working other times. so from that it became confusing and I don't know where I'm going wrong at this point. So I think maybe all I can do is post some clips of my failures/successes that also contradict each other and maybe you can tell me what I am doing wrong. https://streamable.com/2aetdr https://streamable.com/807sob https://streamable.com/q9i90w https://streamable.com/9nffq7 https://streamable.com/7g2sgz https://streamable.com/k24bpl https://streamable.com/txpi2s https://streamable.com/w7y5qd https://streamable.com/ikihrl https://streamable.com/87mpta https://streamable.com/wc43rd https://streamable.com/vsln7i https://streamable.com/c3t00f https://streamable.com/3wgfrb https://streamable.com/ldsrv2 https://streamable.com/k89apb https://streamable.com/smyj8u https://streamable.com/jaxxut
