    A 2LB bream will require heavy tackle and a stout hook, at that weight he will probably eat what get close.

    make them get aggressive like pitching a tube jig with a bobber behind them then pulling it in, in front of them.

    #12 white popper worked the other day but my gills sure aren't close to 2 pounds.

    I use popping bugs, woolly buggers, etc most of the time. These will catch all sizes so accurate delicate casting is helpful to put it on biggest fishes' bed. But my biggest brim though have come from a little deeper water on crickets and red worms hooked on a tiny jighead just big enough to sink a cricket. These were females that had not moved up to spawn yet.

    I have used a small black artificial ant and tossed it in the bed. As it fell,the race was on to see who could get it first ...

    Del's suggestion is right on,although if the beds are near deeper water,I sometimes use a bobber.

    Del has the ticket, if the fish can't see you and a worm is in their bed, they will pick it up.

    Big wadd of red worms on a small gold wire brim hook. If the bed is in very shallow water drop them in the bed and back off so the fish can't see you and sit very still.
