  1. Welcome to the forum Anything you need to no about blanking just ask.
  2. Some nice fish one thing i would suggest that is to keep the carp close to the ground and with a carp matt underneath them when taking photos i have see fish dropped from standing up position and its not a pretty sight ... the last photo of the fully scaled would of made for a much better picture if held in the correct way. But some nice fish sir well done.
  3. As said watch some videos mate im sure we are all doing something wrong weather that be the line ... rod ... line lay on the reel ... leads ... technic etc etc ... i added 20 yards to my cast just by watching some videos and found that just by standing in the correct position was all that was needed. Power has nothing over technic i watched a 14 year old hit 70 yards not a massive range by any standards but he was being taught by his dad and i watched as he showed him the technic to look at him if he was fishing alone you would think he couldnt hit 25 yards.
  4. Some good views and opinions here and taken on board mabey i was abit over zelouse with the test curve thing and i no when to hold my hands up when im wrong. My thinking was with a stiffer top section the action is stiffer when the fish lunges the preassure would be more on the line as the stiffer top section didnt have enuff action in it ... i thort the softer section would soak up the lunges and put less preassure on the line because of the softer action but from the posts i see this is wrong. I agree with big common the heavier gear will give you more control and will get the fish in quicker and that connot be a bad thing and yes there will always be a snag no matter where you fish. The only thing i dnt agree with is calling people sheep this is a forum to dicuss fishing , views and opinoins are shared and some you will and wont agree with them ... slating and name calling is not needed and adds nothing to the topic in question thoe they mabey your view and opinion sometimes they are better kept to yourself if they add nothing constructive.
  5. The 2 biggest things to mouth damage is test curves and uncoated braided hooklinks With a lighter test curve the rod soakes up the lunges all these sea rods i see people using soak up nothing. With my light test curve rod i use a mono mainline that has a much less cheese wire effect than braid the most popular hooklink on the market normally paired with a couple of sea rods for ultimate mouth ripping combo. Hooking them in the scissors is the real danger no matter what you are using the chances of causing damage goes up. And if you are struggling with mouth damage dont forget to follow the fishery rules that where created by the tooth fairy when she last visited.
  6. Trust your instincts.
  7. Many moons ago i had a new pb and the biggest fish from my local whilse float fishing ... epic 25 min battle on 6lb line and a few handshakes later the noddy with the float rod had gained the respect of the bivvy boys.
  8. I had a nice tinker last week on a float fished sinking chum mixer double sweetcorn kept getting picked up by 1lb roach so i stuck the mixer on in hope the roach couldnt eat it ( big baits big fish ) and within 2 mins it was away and this beaut graced the net.
  9. Anysize dosent matter aslong as its quiet and surrounded by trees i cannot stand commercials them days have gone. Probley my most most memorable place that sadly is no longer there after they built houses on it was and old farmers drainage pond .. it was less than half an acre and i first started fishing it in my early teens with permission from the farmer. There where no carp in there but some lovely bars of soap with a 5lb average and a few bigger ones i had done quiet a few sessions on there and had some nice tinkers one day i hooked something i thort was alot bigger turned out to be a near on 3lb crusian. After that capture that little pond held its secrets from me for months after that first capture them crusians did not visit the bank very often but when i did get one it was a good-un the biggest i had was just over 4lb but chaseing them for months and months is what did it for me even if it did get frustrating. You dont have to fish 100 acres to get that buzz do not ignore the little guys.
  10. Its still early bite time at 5 . I have just took my first walk around one of my club waters a 3 acre lake in the middle of the woods ... dunno if i could do a night there its creepy during the day lol. Did see plenty of crusiers thoe suns out ... get on the floaters smurf.
  11. I watched some documentry that suggested animals only see in red weather its true or not i dunno but im sure i read an artical somewhere that matty wrote explaining the subject and the reason why he was using red line.
  12. I was thinking of getting hold of some actual mussels from the lake bed and using them straight on the hook ... i like the sound of the extract where could i buy this and what about getting some mussel boilies of some sort. The only thing i have not tried is using a bottom bait ... ive been using pop ups on really short stiff rigs but not yet fished on the deck. I may give this a try with a mussel boilie soked in extract fished on a basic knotless knot braided rig an old classic and sorta back to basics.
  13. Some really stunning fish chaps well done to all this page will get me throu the blanks and keep me going.
  14. Im using pop ups on tiny stiff hinge rigs the lake has muscles on the bottom ... and they have a leader ban on all the waters the one im fishing has no snags whatsoever im not even a fan of leaders but when common sense prevails.
  15. I have been float fishing the margins since my first session using corn and a single ssg shot and a small clear waggler lift float style and have caught many carp over the years doing this ... not had a sniff accept 1 aborted but i suspect this was more of a line bite than a carp picking up the bait.
