  13. Better than a bait boat for it's range, seen a few guys do well with those nice neat baiting and rig placement without the waders or oil tanker wiring across a small lake, being super cheeky with one a guy would cast a bare lead over to the far margins nip round with a baiting pole, bait and rig, that works.

    Tiger nut advice

    I think you could say the same of sweetcorn, as for tigers, because if you examine your stools after eating sweet corn, it's often often evident that corn is almost completely intact, yet it's universally accepted that sweetcorn is good for us. Also the fine flour or meal of tigers, may be coming out in a similar state it went in, but as the particles are finer, they're probably not as identifiable when they come out the other end, but if tiger nut flour is part of a boilie, alongside other ingredients used together they create a more valuable and complete food source, and are then suitable fo

  23. Tigers go through the gut in humans, dogs and fish exactly as they were swallowed. If the tiger nut was crushed, chewed in the teeth, pieces come out. If they were swallowed whole, that is how they come out in the excrement. It may be fibre, but the actual legume itself is pretty much indigestible; hence why you do not want or need very many. In fact exactly the same as peanuts. The 'by-product' of tiger nut or peanut flour provides more useable nutrition.

    Spinner rig

    Iโ€™ve used both quick change and spinner swivels pal, without any issues, but nowadays I just use the korda spinner swivels as theyโ€™ve been designed for the job, no bending open the QC swivel to get the hook eye in! I use size 11 swivels for all my rigs, the smaller and less obtrusive the better!

    Maybe worth investing in some of the actual Spinner Swivels, stops the hassle of bending open/close the swivel what would may cause a weak spot? Just a thought.

    Here my attempt , looks about right. Threading the QC ring through the hook eye was really tight and required bending the QC part out and back in.

    I use Korda Boom and Krimp a loop in each end, if I need a softer section I use ESP Tungsten Loaded, Palamor knot to Ronnie side, Figure 8 for quick change swivel.

    Spinner rig

    Iโ€™ve used both hooklinks with the spinner rig without any problem mate, I tend to attach it to the spinner swivel with a figure of eight loop and another loop at the other end of the boom for the quick change swivel. A grinner knot to the spinner swivel will be fine, but I personally prefer loops either end.

    Thanks for the reply, I have some soft ghost fluro would that do for the boom? Or I have some stuff braid ( suffix sheath skin). Would you just use a grinner knot onto the ring to attach,

    Spinner rig

    The spinner rig is my go to pop up rig, Iโ€™ve used ESP cryogen curve shanks and korda kurves in size 6 and 4s with no issues. In fact i prefer the size 4 to be honest. Whilst I use it with a helicopter set up, it can be used with a lead clip arrangement, but I probably wouldnโ€™t use it with an inline lead personally, I find inline leads lend themselves to short soft braided hooklinks and pva bag work, I would be worried that the nose of the lead would dig in taking the hooklink with it. As I use fluro or at least a semi stiff hooklink of between 8-10 inches (to suit the lake bed Iโ€™m fishing over

    Tiger nut advice

    this article also says roasting or germinating tigers, increases the antioxidant levels, i think sprouted nuts, seeds and pulses can be a good edge for any bait, if your willing to do the extra prep, i've got some sprouted chick peas in the freezer i'm yet to use, but make sure you research prepare them properly, in some cases they can be dangerous.

    Tiger nut advice

    I have not used tiger nuts for bait yet - but I have eaten them myself! There is a good amount of vegetable fat in tiger nuts, as well as the fibre most seem to think is the main point of eating them. They are a bit tough but can be chewed, the flavour reminds me of hazlenuts. Lately I have blitzed a few hand fulls in a heavy duty blender to produce a flour. It's best to push the resulting coarse flour through a sieve and then blitz the rougher particles in the blender again, then the sieve a final time. Any larger particles left I chuck in my groundbait mix - nothing wasted! My

  40. Not really fill a carp up, it goes in one end, and straight through while continuing to eat. Tigers are also not particularly good for the carp, the only nutrition they can get from them is the surface, once they are eaten, either chewed, crunched or whole, swallowed, they come out exactly as they go in. Obviously most tigers are crunched and broken in the pharyngeal teeth. Tigers can be an addictive food, carp will eat almost nothing else if they are baited in large quantities, hence mixing up with hemp. For one litre tub of hemp, I have a handful of tigers in there.

    Your answer in a nutshell (pardon the pun) all I would add is to ensure they are well prepared correctly or use ready prepared nuts, use sparingly and use simple rigs that you already have confidence in.

    They'll work all year mate. Don't use too many. They're best bulked out with something imo (hemp is a good option). I tend to use them with boilie to avoid nuisance species. I don't do anything fancy when it comes to rigs. Keep it simple.

Well things could be going better, I heard today that the ambulance company I work for is letting us all go... ...on the plus side, Iโ€™ve been offered a nursing job on bank with the NHS and Iโ€™ve been offered a job with the probation service but no start dates as yet, praying the ambulance job ends after the new jobs begin or Iโ€™m gonna struggle to pay the mortgage!
