USING THE “JELLY BEAN” PRINCIPLE TO FISH PRESTON BEACH
The Jelly Bean Principle says that, “Often, fish that aren’t actively feeding will attack a very small lure out of aggression when larger lures or baits won’t work.”
Using this method on a dead calm morning with little to no surface activity, Steve explains how he used berley and a small Raider metal slice to land firstly land this herring.
Because even if you’re full you can also fit a little jelly bean …
Then he uses it to land the only tailor caught in the comp. Sure, it’s not big but it was enough to give him the win when larger baits and lures had failed.
