  1. Looking at spending abit of time on the back lake (faraway) this year not much in search on here ... the website has some info and pictures but cannot find anything on the actual lake itself. Hotspots if any ... depths etc etc I have google earthed the place and its surrounded by trees so its gonna be choddy come early spring ... whats it like in summer weedy ?? ... did a youtube search and see they had weed cutters in there 4/5 years ago. Also any recent info on the place how did it fish this past year ... fish numbers etc etc Just collecting all the info i can get to gi
  2. My last time out i had 2 double takes ... i had 4 runs that day 😑😑
  3. After fishing for near on 20 years and living 25 mins away from par fisheries i have never fished it mainly due to having to pre-book on and with the limited time i had on the bank it just wasn't an option when i find the lake fully booked on the odd day/night i had free. This year i have loads of free time on my hands and so ... The Par Campaign begins Gonna fish the Back lake so any tips will be nice i have my google earth map printed and ready ;D Break my pb 28lb 7 A thirty ??
  4. Where do i start ... Spring is just around the corner and the last time i posted was 2017 i was just getting back into my fishing after an extended period of time away from my one true passion in life fishing ... To say alot has happened in the last few years would be an understatement both within my fishing and within my personal life i will leave the latter out and get down to what you guys wanna here about, where have i been, what did i catch well ... Well the 2017 season for me was a right off it was my first year back and to had my fair share of blanks and only had a handfu
  5. Reports of Carp spawning at most of my club waters today so thats the rods away for a few weeks.
  6. Catching 63 carp in a 24 hour session does not prove the bait is good just sounds like a very overstocked water with a fish a chuck not my kind of water but each to his own in these kind of waters anybait will work ... tbh i think you are wasting money with the key £10-12 a kilo at most tackle shops. There are many small bait companys out there that produce bait just as good but half the price.
  7. Welcome to the forum Anything you need to no about blanking just ask.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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 for
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
