    I keep thinking this is the one this weekend, every weekend I think that lol, when is one of those bigguns going to get netted? . surely I havent used up all my lives and they have slipped my grasp, I'm getting proper addicted at the moment, I want to be there all the time, I am buzzing like an old fridge, because I am going today to try and tempt one, I have an overnighter locked and loaded, just the usual anxiety that the swim is available now, just need the green light from Mrs P and I'm away they saw bait Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday this week, cos I am letting my foot off the gas,

    Run out of time on the end, had to settle for a Consolation breakfast from mcdonalds I think I am done in that swim for now its been nice while it lasted but I feel like I know it too well lol, I thought that this morning when grabbing my rod and lead in the standard way to avoid the over hanging tree after wrapping up the rod, I've become too comfortable and have stopped looking elsewhere, it's good to know but I need to delve deeper to find the bigguns, I can always revisit at times but I don't want to end up just going through the motions, I've had a nice run and had 11 carp to

    Well I managed to land one in the night, few scary moments really tried every trick to dispatch the hook into something, I thought for a moment it had snagged me up but a little pressure with the rod down low seemed to get it moving luckily,it went completely the wrong direction to usual really threw me off kilter they usually head straight for the pads , it was caught on a ronnie rig from a spot that usually produces but I don't always fish for some reason so quite pleased I moved it there last night πŸ€”πŸ˜ 23lb12oz mirror which I thought was much bigger, looked big I though lt, pics to foll

  12. No fishing now until weekend 10th/11th October, Due to Working and wife having an operation, so now doing abit of pimping though. Few Manilla bags being made up, Manilla Boilies being glazed in Manilla Liquid then coated in Manilla Stik Mix (repeat a few times). Rods are stripped and cleaned, gonna go to lake whan get chance to Spin Doctor lines and spare spools... Do all this ready for just before winter.

    September Catch Reports

    On Thursday I popped over to the res on one of my weekly baiting trips, with a day sesh due on the Friday. As soon as I arrived I just knew I'd struggle to sleep that night (due to excitement for the next day). It looked absolutely BANGING, there is just no other word for it. I saw a couple of carp show, and there was fizzing on my spot. It was almost a shame to ruin it by chucking spombs all over the place but that's what I was there for so that's what I did. At home afterwards the Mrs got a right earful about how confident I was, what I was going to catch, etc etc. Poor girl lol. I did

    Yes it does but what I’ve been noticing Elmo is it’s like the sand dissolves into the silt I’ve noticed that if it’s disturbed up to an hr afterwards you get a flat spot it’s only observation I’m going on mind not camera footage etc

    How often are you recasting these bags of attraction? Surely an oil will disperse after a little while?

  28. I've been watching through the crypography back issues when I get a chance, I happened to chance upon one with elliot grey showing his rig off, so I made one as its not dissimilar to the one I made but using a knot less knot hair and a proper line aligner (as suggested by framey) this is both of them in a jug, I quite like the hair it just looks less blatent and it doesn't rattle, just a bit more delicate and tuneable if required

    Well it's been a funny old night, I got here had shows on both my spots, couldn't have been much more confident, messed up getting a fairly simple cast on the money too often but they were right in the end, nothing til this morning, when my right hand rod tore off and yet another hookpull, then just as was writing this my left hand rod rips off, massive scrap but I got it in but as it drew closer I knew something wasn't right somehow I have managed to foul hook another one in the belly, must have just been grazing on the spot swam into my rig, I know I can't really moan I've had some rea

  42. I had put my middle rod on a ronnie rig with a curve shank absolutely nailed the bottom lip one 20+ mirror in the retainer from a little spot I've often ignored but seem to catch from when I don't πŸ˜‚ Now I just have 2 wafters out there till sunrise 😬 I think they need a longer hair next tbh

  43. Depends on the test curve of the rods you are using, if your rods are 3lb TC a lead between 2-4 oz would be ideal anything more would bottom the rod out, anything less will not load the correct tension in the rod leading to more violent jolting takes and pulled hooks if the rods are on the stiff side.

    1st 15lb one looked a lot darker in real life This one was a real scaly one, I had an occurance on my rods 😁 2 hook pulls though need some fine tuning I think this week, especially as I've had a few lately and lost a couple of real good uns 😒

    This is the 11lbers tail 20lb4oz both sides The 15lber I regret not getting a proper photo with And the stunning 17lb blank saver Not a bad weekends work, shame about the other 3 nil pointers though, but a lot happier than before the 17lber this morning, I am convinced that first one I lost last night was one of the bigger ones, we will never know though so I will just have to try and catch it again sometime πŸ˜‰

    Sounds like you need to get a handle on the woman, drop a few hints that you and a few work mates are thinking of doing a lads weekend in Amsterdam next year, she will have no problems with you spending up your spare time on fishing. I take it most of you guy's ladies don't read the carp forum either? Great stuff on the catch, it's an eye opener on the regular baiting approach, i daren't try, if i was to turn up and the swim wasn't free i can't be sure of my reaction, could be one of those bad decision in an instant moments. plus it's a 100 mile round trip not what i call local, h

  49. That hats now on my wanted list! Proper toasty! Knew I shouldn't have let you have a try if you me n guy fish together we'll look like triplets( I'm the good looking one of course ) Of course We'd probably be the most funny shaped and sized triplets ever seen! I'd have to meet the parents. Just the once, of course............ Carl is of average/stocky build and height and is great company despite being a damn fool Yam Yam. Guy resembles a pie. You are what you eat...he's as high as he is wide and is another damn fool Yam Yam. Andy is slim, six foot twelve

    Losing the lead!?

    That's some balancing act your looking for there. Think you need to look at from the direction that if you do get snagged whilst playing a fish would you want it to be stuck dragging a lump of lead around if and when it frees itself Personally I think that losing a few quid is better than the fish it's life
