    Anyone else noticed that any ornamentals or ghosties tend to be leaders of a decent size shoal? Where they go others follow .

    I have noticed when the ghostie in vermuyden is around there are usually a good few other fish present and actually maybe even being followed when I think about it, it disappeared on my spot fairly recently after circling round it with a couple of mates for a while,I thought for a moment I was going to catch it but not that time the ghostie must've spooked
     
    Get it ghostie , spooked 😳
    Felt like a right kick in the ghoulies that day 😁

    Only time on the lake watching will tell you the answer to that.  You could catch the bigger fish on the same spots and same methods as the smaller fish or you might have to leave the smaller fish and look elsewhere.
    If you manage to see the fish enough you start knowing which ones hang around together, what routes do they take, maybe learn where were they caught from previously - you want to end up feeling like you know where they will be in different conditions and then it comes together, you spot one of the big uns in an area and know that his mates will be there too and its game on - pay back time for the work you've put in.
    There really is no substitute for observation- the effort of watching and listening.
    You could find that different rigs catch the bigger fish, or that a particular one only ever gets caught on zigs for instance - just food for thought, you could just do a pub chuck like me 👍😂

    @Emmcee mentioned something recently.... can't remember which way round it was , but Em or the other guy  was banking more fish than others & it was down to lead size,  5 oz leads were being used but instead of copying each other one went the other way & fished really light leads & low & behold better than average results were also the result . Backs up what Kev mentions above .

    All this info your gathering will all fall into place over time , just make mental notes on what's  going on . Personally I would of moved as you could of always moved back.  Over the years I reckon the moves that of paid of the most are the worst weather conditions to do so 😅 & we all sit there thinking do I really want to up sticks in this 😁

    Spot on.
    When (or IF) the weed dies down they'll have a period when they go mental on that naturals that are revealed (bloodworm etc). Sometimes only naturals can compete with this - maggots, worms etc.
    Once they've passed this period boilies can indeed be the one, but not always.
    In that case do exactly what caught your fish but increase the baiting levels significantly.
