No Short Cuts in Carp Fishing. You still have to get off your backside to look for the Fish and the signs.
The most imprtant thing that I have found is find your fish, Location is probably the most Important Part of Carp Fishing. You can't catch Fish that aren't where you are fishing.
Bait, find a bait that the Carp want to feed on. It may be a Boilie, Maggots, sweetcorn, luncheon meat or a number of other things. Grasshoppers, Slugs, Worms, Bread all work in the right situation.
You don't have to spend "silly amounts" on bait.
Rigs, keep them as simple as possible. A simple knotless knotted and/or line aligned hook to whatever hooklength you feel comfortable with. With just a standard rig you can adjust the length of the hair or the rig length, either of which can improve your catches.
That quote comes from this thread:

Dont know how experienced you are but sapphire lakes is pretty hard going at the best of time , it may have changed but it used to recieve a huge amount of pressure mainly due to the fact that a lot of the rules were unsuitable for a lake this small , they used to allow bait boats and even allowed the on site row boat to be used for placing of rigs baiting etc , because of this most fish tended to be caught right under the trees on the out of bounds bank or even amongst the lillies as this is were most of the feed was going , as far as bait went from what i remember most were using nutrabaits bfm boilies.

^if your gna say stuff like that u mite aswell not say n e thin at all
nt a great help is it
Problem is you think its sarcasm, but as much information as you can learn off the internet and Forums, there are times when you do have to get down to the lake and really learn it from Personal Experience.
Every Lake is different, every fish is different. As good as any information is, at some point it gets out of date. So any information you receive now, by tomorrow, it could be useless. Hence why I was a bit cheeky on my answer.
What is sad that people expect every single answer to be written down for them. Unless you do some things for yourself you simply don't learn. In Carp Fishing if you don't learn, then you don't continue to catch. You have to learn and be able to adapt to different circumstances.

yea personal experiance is good, but so is knowing abit about the water before you get there, hence y i ask for advice before i visit. i only asked 4 advice not to know the life story of the lake. cheers 4 the post any way, i know where your coming from
How do you think the people you ask for advice from found the information in the first place?
Did they ask someone else? If so, that information is already out of date. What about the people before that?
The only way to get up to date information on a water is to get out and fish it yourself. Sure there are always a few variants that stay constant but these are bits of information I would want to keep to myself, or tell a select few that I know and trust.
