    The biggest this year and witnessed by someone I know is 4lb 3oz, so hopefully I'll be back there very soon to try and catch a bigger one 😀 I was there for first light but they only started biting at 1:30 and i caught my last fish on my last worm at 5:00. So next time I will be taking more bait. Don't think I'll even bother with the prawns next time they weren't interested in them at all. 🤔

    It's a local lake, about 10 minutes from home. 👍

    I had five perch nothing massive but a positive start to my new quest. 1lb 2oz, 1lb 4oz, 1lb 9oz and 2 = 1lb 10oz. I used my molehill groud bait whether it made any difference to my catching I don't know. ALL the fish came to lob worm not a touch on the prawns, 3 on the float rod 2 to the ledger, my front indicator that I made got converted to a rear drop off indicator and worked very well.

    Yep that's the way I'm going low resistant rigs, nothing fixed or semi fixed just basic run ring and I've actually made my own front indicator very light vertically no weight at all open bailarm and a line clip, I might have to make some twicks to it on the bank but all part of the learning process for me. 👍

    I've also seen some guys using potting compost I suppose it works the same way but if I remember rightly the mole Hill soil has amino acids in from the worms that the moles feed on. 👍 I'm fishing two rods tomorrow one ledgering on the buzzer and the other float fishing, it's the first time I've actually targeted perch. 🤞

    Mole Hill soil, not used it before but seen quite a few on YouTube using it. Just collect it from a fresh mole Hill run it through a riddle to remove all the stones and hard lumps and then mix all your chopped worm maggots and chopped prawn and the liquid of your choice and use as a ground bait. Supposedly it clouds up in the water with all your freebies and attracts the perch. I don't know if it works but worth a try, I'll let you know how I get on. 😀👍

    King prawns. Red maggots. Lob worms. Baittech predator adative. I've also collected some smaller worms for chopping up with some of the prawns and red maggots and adative. Just need to get some mole Hill soil now for my ground bait and then tomorrow a days perch fishing, something different I can't wait. 😀

    I think if all angler's are honest we all have a fetish for fishing gear I certainly do especially rods and reels, I must have at least 15 of each, covering all aspects of the sport apart from fly that just doesn't do it for me. 😂 😂 😂
  9. Could you not just crush the barb on your normal hook pattern. 👍

    Well at the moment I do day sessions only usually dawn to dusk. This year I'm hoping to do my first 24hr session and once I've done that I sure more will follow. 😀

    First trip of the year

    I went today to one of my local waters it was a blank for me, I got a few liners so they were about just not interested in my bait. 🤔 I was talking to the bailiff seems like there's been some good perch coming out so I think I'll have a go for them next trip out. 😀

    My lo Pro arrived today, I thought it was damaged when I seen the box some dummy some were had stood on the box and it looked bent, anyway opened it up and it was fine. 👍 I must say first impressions it looks really good the quality looks spot on. 😀 I'm fishing tomorrow but I won't get to use it it's a prezzie from the wife so only officially get it on Sunday. 😀

    I've been toying with the idea of getting a new brolly for a while now. I've been watching YouTube videos and reading lots of reviews and reading all the old threads on here which were most useful. Took me a while to make my mind up but anyway the wife's treated me to a esp lopro she's a good'n 😘 It arrives on Wednesday well made up. 😀
