Let's assume each scenario is fishing the exact same area, and you have a limited amount of chum, pack bait, etc, which is important for this discussion. Also, I realize this discussion isn't about producing the largest fish, there are other tactics for that, but I was just wondering if you are looking for the most action, which scenario produces more fish? Thanks for any comments.

Scenario A: 3 Rods. Each line is about 50ft or so from each other. You're covering more area, but each area has less chum.

Scenario B: 1 Rod. You're covering less area, but you can afford to throw more chum, pack bait directly near or around your line.

I would go with B. I would rather have a larger area of chum to attract and hold more fish.

I like to fish carp in richland chambers off my dock. I usually tie a bucket of dog food (with holes) down the side of a pole and fish with 2 or 3 rods within 4 feet of each other. I get tangled sometimes, but overall seem to work. I used home made boilies on a hair rig or calf feed pellets on a rubber band. works well for me

Scenario C: 2 rods is my preference. Throw one line in the chum and one just outside. If you have any current (wind) throw the second just down from the chum area.

Loc: southwest more west than south...
Scenario A the more lines in the water the better the chances of a hookup

I would try to implement kind of A) looking wide enough (searching)
And if I spot it, I would immediately switch to C), PLUS my former rod #3 rested close with a loaded feeder, and ready to replace the one of two active rods (the one which just caught a fish smile )

Id fish 3 rods closer together. That way you concentrate the chum, and can put more in the water.

Thx for the comments. I am going to start placing the rods closer together, that does make sense. I just don't like messing with the other lines if an over active fish decides he doesn't want to cooperate. lol..

A. you cover wider area you can try more than 1 bait so you can see what attracts them. some place fish get spooked once you catch one so they'll move on for a little bit. by having another pile of bait you can catch a different school of fish or the same ones that just moved from the previous pile. just my opinion at the end of the day I spent many hours on a river with clear water and watched how fish react to different scenarios.


thats why C. also works as you fish out the baited area
