  1. I dabbled a few times with my Sonik Xtractor and Xtractor GS Reel, didn't feel right when using 12ft rods for so long. Easier to carry and pack down though.
  2. Highy

    Dogs and fishing

    Looks a lively chappy, can see the Beagle shape and the Dalmatian looking head/ears, also colour. 🤞
  3. Mmmmm, long as it floats, drives and hoppers open... Job done. Used mine at weekend, got to 1 or 2 places that I couldn't cast too, with over hanging branches, and close to a floating pontoon.
  4. Yah, got there, had a look about heard 1 or 2, set rods up and chair, then sat back until 1st light... Watched the lake and over all the shows were near were i was... Brew kit was at the side of me. Everything else was on Barrow. Yeh agree, had the AXS with me just incase of any rain, on the Barrow was that, Food Bag, Tackle Bag, Bait Bag, Chair, rod bag. Think I may do this more often now until about March/April when the night fishing will start for me.
  5. Ended in a Blank Bruno for every 1.... But about 1pm found a group of 9 decent fish patrolling up and down the far margin, 3 Ghostie and 1 or 2 lumps in too. Another work mate turned up for a few hours, put a rod out for him (the single stick rod), but no luck.... Practically fished off the Barrow, can't believe how easy this sort of fishing is, 1 mate moved 3 times doing this.
  6. Nothing happened yet for no 1....been up n down trees looking around, in the margins, seen a few bubbles, but not even any liners... Sticking too what I know works on here what I've caught on in the past, just scaled it down abit.
  7. More pics in Daylight now, there's 8 anglers on, myself n Mate up the Snaggy end... Not massive range fishing.... 10 wraps.
  8. Arrived at 5.30am, lights doing its justice.
  9. Sounds good, when is the Elmo test? I'm out in morning for the day with 2 mates to the Park Lake... stuff is already put together, just do the Food later after the Dentist and Football training. Like a Kid at Christmas... 🎣🎣
  10. 12ft SKTek Rod Sleeve for Spod/Marker Rod (bit of a snug fit), ESP Tungsten beads, Back leads, Nash Claw Size 6. Shoukd be about done really on purchasing now.... Until look for a Weigh Tripod for over Cradle.... No rush though.
  11. Agree on both, be a stunner when older. If he's alright at night and no bother of barking at people, birds, ducks etc etc, he should be fine.... Also a Ln extra comfort on the cold nights... Mine lies against my back sometimes and the extra layer does the world of warmth.
  12. Hi Dave, What sort of dog do you have?, obviously you can see mine is a Frenchie, he doesn't even bark at anything, loves the outside and people. I have him on a 10mtr dog cable attached to the bedchair in the bivvy and he can Rome in and out. Loves it on the bedchair. I do take a few toys to keep him entertained, his blanket, coat, food /water bowls.
  13. Let us know how you get on with it Elmo, heard some good things about these beds.
  14. I know it doesn't get light until about 7.30/8 am, but I'll be there for about 6am... Pop Ups will either be Sticky White/Yellow Manilla, Pink Krill in Krill Supreme, Yellow Pineapple in Pineapple Supreme + Isotonic, Sticky Mulbz in Korda Isotonic Goo. ALL my Zig baits are soaking in Hinders Golden Betalin.
  15. Only fishing 2 rods, deffo 1 on a pop up... Just can't wait be out
  16. Right, going to the local park lake Saturday Morning until about 3pm (ish) With this cold weather where would you guys start?... Yellow line is Fishing side only, you do get the odd 1/2 trying luck on other side, not really supposed to fish more than half way, but we do to the tree line, Blue line. Red circle is about 2-3ft in depth, Green circle is about 4ft in depth, Pink circle is 5ft but I know 1 part of it right at back drops to 6ft deep to a 6ft channel gully. ALL the lake is covered in silt all the way across (about 1 1/2ft) I've actually walked across the middle of the lake in my waders. The orange lines are old sunken Jettys that used to be there. They still feed the ducks here EVERYDAY. Anywhere on this lake is decent but the fish do really love the sun when it's out and the depths/snags at night. Heard only about 5/6 fish have been out in last few weeks.... So based on this week's weather, would would you guys start.
  17. Ive taken mine since a pup. This was his 1st outing with me. Practically comes on every session, Loves coming with me.
  18. Only paid for it Friday, was in post Saturday, through door this morning. Can't fault the speed of it.
  19. 12 Month Membership Book arrived 😁😁
  20. That's all I'm doing, 2 waters I fish have overhanging trees/branches, casting to them is a nightmare, but I will use the boat to go to just the edge of them, not all way under, but also even in open water to keep down disturbance.
  21. Like @framey, I've been used to using my mates Actor bait boat, but now the wife has bought me my own ( not actor, but I will use) I will also try and get into as many spots as I can.
