    Thought of the Day pt.2

    On the rare occasion me and my friends get together for a beer we always have a little debate at some point about a football match, the year a song or film came out etc etc. And Google will end that debate.

    I agree with this one, dug all my old gear out after 20 years and just went fishing on a new lake, caught straight away and dont think I blanked. Then started getting new everything, bivvy, sleeping bag, chair, line, bedchair, landing net, cradle, Been a mare ever since

    bait boat

    I have the Procat, had it for years and it's never let me down. I bought it 2nd hand and it came with a hopper extension which simply sits inside the existing hopper. Without the extension the boat holds around three quarters of a kilo. With extension I can double that. It's all the boat I'll ever need, quite fast, steers and handles well. Here's a tip. I bought a large plastic-coated hook and welded onto it a 3/8ths BSF set pin (bolt). I can screw this into a spare landing net pole to lift the boat into or out of the water if the bank has a bit of a drop to the water. Another tip. When first using the boat to take out your terminal tackle, lead, hook etc DON'T make the mistake I made. I didn't open the bail arm on the reel, relying on a loosened clutch to allow line off. Massive line twist was the result!!! I learned my lesson, trust me...……... Ian

    Just Googled it. The Walleye is also known as the Yellow Pike and is a close relative to the European Zander. Ian.

    bait boat

    I can use a boat on my estate waters & this year I'm going to put a bit of time in there. Having been there the other day, I reckon a bait boat will give me an edge. Plus it gets all overgrown and left to nature, so some of the spots that look carpy are impossible to cast to. So looking online I've found this at around the £100 mark. Reviews I've read seem OK & the nearest one up is around the £300 mark. Any thoughts or comments please

    January catch reports

    Went out for a few hours this morning. The lake hasn’t done a bite since September 13th so was up against it with the little time I had available. The trip was really just to scratch the itch and get out the house for a bit and take advantage of these double figure temps. Looks like I’ve found their new Winter holding spot after the last area I was catching from had dried up!

    Targeting bigger carp

    Target the deeper areas a rod length or two out, (spend a day or two with just a marker rod finding depths) or if the sun is on the water, I would drop a bait in the areas where the sun is on the water for the longest, as it'll warm up quicker...

    Rod advice required

    Hi mick, If you want or have to fish, at any sort of distance, yes get longer rods. If there's a few swims where you don't need to cast as far as possible, then stick with what your confident with for the time being. I believe that you need to feel comfortable and confident in approaching a new venue. Good luck, 🤞

    Targeting bigger carp

    I actually used a Method Groundbait ball wrapped around the lead on Ardleigh, the majority of the carp I caught were over 20lb. It depends on the water. I can go back to Bromeswell, and for some reason the Method does not work very well, possibly the thick silt lakebed. Loosefed pellets, sweetcorn and particles work a lot better, quite probably because they don't sink into the silt. At Thwaite The method over plenty of groundbait did produce loads of fish, if fished over the gravel, but so did loosefeeding. The loosefeeding however produced lots of smaller silver fish. The Method was more carp orientated on the hook. The moral of the story? Learn as much as you can about the water, and remember waters change over time, so you will need to adapt.

    Cork Handle Butt Grips

    I was snag fishing locked up in Italy with these butt rests - no issue whatsoever, although I expected the rods to be pulled in they never moved.

    why not keep your rods (better for actually playing fish) and buy a cheap bait boat and take your bait out with that only when you need to
