  1. I’m just starting to use zigs . Is it worth spodding out bait over them or to use them in a roving manner ? Cast them around to try and find fish etc . Also is it worth flavouring them or is that just a gimmick ?
  2. I’ve just joined a new water and i want to pre bait a few spots over the autumn then into the winter . I’m thinking corn , maggot and hemp . Has anyone anything else they’d suggest or leave out as it gets colder etc ? Has anyone done this successfully? In this 4 acre lake the carp only show in the very middle but the silt is 3ft deep and it’s very shallow there as well
  3. No they feed it all over . The fish seem to lye by the no fishing area a lot . Maybe no pressure there , no lines and little disturbance. People do catch it's just the feeding windows are so small and so infrequent that I'm puzzled as to how to catch them when they seem to be off so much
  4. Yes that particular lake was stocked two years ago and the year before that and you can see them against the no fishing / no casting to bank
  5. Yeah the top guys are getting 4/5 fish per year and they're on it most weekends . Unfortunately I can't see people working together as everything is cloak and dagger lol . My next outings will be worm and maggot as the boilie & pellet thing hasn't produced for me . Ill try roving different areas and keeping mobile.
  6. Thank for the input lads . So the club are feeding high grade pellets regularly in the margins. The stock is high as you can see them ..... on the no fishing side 😂 . As far as I'm aware boys are fishing over beds of the pellet that the club feed with as we can buy them but also with pellet and boilies of their own choice . The thing with all the lakes that gets me is that they just go dormant for such long periods of time but they're all different types of lakes so it's not as if they're all deep and switch off once it becomes cold . Im leaning towards trying maggots and worm
  7. I've been a member of a club for over two years now . The club has three waters and all are tough going . The lakes will go 3/4/5 weeks not doing a fish then they'll throw a couple up and switch off again . One lake went 7 months last year without doing a fish and another lake went 4 months before producing fish again . How would you approach these lakes ? I realise that's a very general question without you seeing the lake and knowing about them but had anyone any experience of fishing these types of tough waters ? There is a good stock in all lakes . My only theory is over feedin
  8. Cheers lads some good stuff to be keeping in mind so far
  9. After having a change in circumstances my fishing for this next year or so will mostly be limited to short sessions of 2-6 hours . So what tips would you guys say are crucial to short session succes? . I'm planning to make sure all my gear and rigs are well prepared and obviously won't be putting out masses of bait with the intention of fishing for a bite at a time . Has anyone anything else they think is important when your angling is limited to a few hours here and there?
  10. What's the best type / pattern of hook for a kd rig ? Ive been playing about tying them with Nash fang x twisters but any diagrams I've seen online use a more curved hook does it matter ? Thanks 😀
  11. What's the optimal length of a hair on a kd . By the hair I mean the distance from the hook to the start of the pop up . Not the entire length as obviously small pop ups and big pop ups alter this . I've just started tying kds and trying to find what works best cheers
  12. I was reading a story online about a well known sponsored angler ( he wasn't named ). But apparently he rarely if ever used boilies . Basically he seemed to fish over particles , maize mostly and fished maize on the rig . He caught well but would then claim it was caught using X boilie ... kinda got me thinking about my own fishing . I use particle a lot and usually a pop up or boilie on hook ( I do feed some chopped and whole boilies as well) . But I don't know why I use boilies ? I guess it keeps small fish away but it got me thinking at £8-10 a kilo do I really need them ? Is th
  13. Some interesting stuff there lads , cheers. My new water is very silty with tests showing a 1.5oz lead to be sinking in as much as 12 inches in places. I've switched to helicopter set up instead of standard lead clip set up and I've been using 6-8 inch hooklinks but I think I'll try 10 inch plus rigs and vary them over three rods to see if any are more productive than others
  14. Ive been looking at various rigs on line and it seems most anglers vary the length of their rig for various situations . Personaly I tend to use short rigs 4-6 inches . But I'm not sure why . It works (most times) but does any one favour longer ones and if so what determines you to use a longer rig ? The type of bottom ? To catch wary bigger fish? Any thoughts much appreciated
  15. Cheers mate. What rig would you use if fishing a bottom bait ?
