BFS – Bait Finesse System for Bream

Baitcasting for bream….The use of BFS (Bait Finesse System) setups is indeed starting to gain traction in the bream fishing scene, particularly among anglers looking to cast larger, heavier, and more specific types of lures when targeting this species. Originally developed in Japan for targeting heavily pressured bass fisheries with ultralight lines and lures, BFS setups offer advantages that are proving beneficial in bream fishing as well.
Baitcaster outfits are particularly well-suited for casting deep crankbaits, jerkbaits, and topwater lures commonly used in bream fishing, such as Atomic Deep Cranks, Daiwa Double Clutch 75mm, and OSP Bent Minnows. They offer superior casting accuracy compared to spinning systems, as well as increased sensitivity, better lure control, and more cranking power to manoeuvre fish out of structure.
While the market for BFS systems is still developing, Daiwa has taken the lead with their bream-specific range, including the Infeet baitcaster rods and ultra-light TWS baitcaster reels. These specialised setups cater specifically to the needs of anglers targeting bream with BFS techniques.
Overall, the adoption of BFS systems in the bream fishing community is growing, with more anglers recognising the benefits they offer in terms of precision casting, sensitivity, and control. Whether you’re a seasoned angler or new to the sport, exploring the potential of BFS setups could enhance your bream fishing experience.
