Although it is intended for surface carp fishing, you can also use it for other surface feeding fish such as roach & rudd.
Anywhere surface fishing is permitted. As it relies on the attractant surrounding the float, it is best suited to still waters or slow flowing rivers.
Whenever fish are feeding on the surface; in the UK this means the warmer months, say May-October. Fish will still feed on the surface outside this period but less frequently and in smaller numbers.
Fish safety and welfare has to be your first priority. Whatever method you use ensure that if the line breaks the fish cannot swim free with the Top-Baiter in tow. If you are still unsure consult your local tackle dealer for best advice.
No, you can use it just as a means of delivering attractant to your swim.
Resist the temptation to overfill the cage beyond two thirds full. If the problem persists try using slightly fewer and/or different sized pellets.
With the basket two thirds full, the total weight is approximately 60gms but the actual casting weight will depend on the quantity, size and weight of the attractant used.
In testing, overhead casting produced distances of well over 60 metres. Actual distances achieved will depend on a number of factors including the anglers experience/technique, rod type, line, wind & weight cast.
