      There is an old saying,bigger baits for bigger fish…think along those lines & I recon you will sort it.

      if they are proper bream, 4lb upwards, 2 whole worms on a long hair is worth a go. Other than that boilies will catch you some good fish too, you will have to experiment with boilie sizes, till you find one that the skimmers wont have a go at

      Skimmers tend to stay away from trout pellets as well, prefering the coarse, so you could try an 11mm one.

      If you are using a groundbait feeder, i would use chop worm and caster inside the feeder. Put a few chopped worms in then casters then plug it up with groundbait at each end.
