    Went out to a 2-3 acre pond located in park about 30 miles from where I live. The pond has grass carp in it, some large fish too. Nothing caught, but nice to get out.

    Getting around the bait rules

    Saw these: https://dynamitebaits.com/product/pop-up-nuggets-3/ They are suppose to pop-up, but I don't know if their pellets, or a boilie type of deal, or how big they are, so I don't know if their something you're looking for, or if you could use them on the water you're talking about... but I thought I'd mention them as a possible option, so I hope it helps.

    Getting around the bait rules

    Checked their site, and it looks like they only do the floating fluro pellets in 22 & 30mm. Also I couldn't find the pink squid and octopus pellets on the site, just the yellow plain halibut pellets, so they may have been discontinued....

    Getting around the bait rules

    Might be worth trying these. Their pellets, but they pop-up, so they may be a bait to consider.

    Help with chum

    There is a varity of things that works very well that you can get from farm stores and supermarkets. Sweetcorn, field and deer corn, chickpeas, lentils, different beans, peas, hempseeds, different birdfoods, and etc. Just make sure to prepare any dried particles, such as field corn, correctly before using.

    No, Its a marina/park in a reservior, and a nice, pretty place to fish for a varity of things. There is a bbq place on the water just about 80-100yrds away on the water, and people often throw bread to the ducks and fish from the outside eating area. This attracts carp, and the place is known to have alot of 30Ib+ carp around it, but the area around the resturant is awkward to fish, so I got as close as I could and hoped to attract a few of those my way. Didn't hook or catch any that size, but caught a decent one, had the hook pull on another, and the one that got cut off, which felt like it was a pretty good size.

    Line keeps looping up

    Sounds to me like line twist. Try a Gardner Spin Doctor, as its made to eliminate twist in the line, or at very least reduce it. It has helped me out.

    Poseidon Ground Tester

    It weighs 150 grams if I recall, so it should cast like a rocket. But if you use it in water with alot of snags, the chances of having it lost is too great. And its extremely expensive, around 32£/$45 I think.

    Berkley or sensor

    I can't speak for the sensor, as I haven't tried it, but the big game is a fairly decent line. Its fairly strong and has decent abrasion resistance, but while fairly OK on a fixed spool/spinning reel, its far, far better on a multiplier reel, which the line was more designed for, I think.

    Poseidon Ground Tester

    Finding things such as bloodworms instantly came to mind when I saw it. Its expensive though, wouldn't want snag up on something, or it crack off on the cast and lose one.
