Bream Fishing : Big Bream Underwater
Recently, I set out on an ambitious project to try and film double-figure bream underwater. The results turned out pretty well and led to this film – Bream Fishing : Big Bream Underwater, that you can watch below.
My venue was a weedy gravel pit, best known for its small head of carp, and less well known, or perhaps infamous, for its big head of bream! The lake is often very clear, making it ideal for filming, although this does promote weed growth. Weed though is a common problem on many gravel pits throughout the summer, so this was a good opportunity to talk about the tactics that I have used to good effect on this type of venue in the past.
Fortunately, over the course of a 48-hour session, everything came right. Not only did I manage to catch some nice bream without having to try too hard, but I also achieved my ambition of filming the fish in my swim on an underwater camera. The filming techniques used were a little unusual, and I explain exactly what I was up to and why I approached the underwater filming in this way.
I certainly learnt a lot about how bream feed and move around the swim during daylight. It was also interesting to see how the bream reacted to bumping into the line – not as I would of expected. The fish also appeared a lot more active in daylight than I had imagined and arrived on the bait quite soon after it was introduced.
