  1. The camsite I fish can be really fun for a couple of hours on the surface, which can result in 9 or 10 fish, but Around half of the carp are deformed in there. I fish this water every now and again but when i catch almost half of the fish are deformed. One i had last time had no lips, and a mouth on the side of its head, just a stub where the mouth would be. The others I have caught there bleed really easily in their mouth even though I am playing them in with care. Some carp have deformed mouths about the size of a thumbnail and have finrot. This water is an easy runs water with anyone on the busy campsite fishing it, but does anyone know why these carp are so deformed?
  2. DOes anyone know how to fish elodea, as many of the swims in the lake that I am fishing are full of this weed? Thanks
  3. I was thinking of buying some cell from Angling Direct But do they not defrost in the delivery? or are they delivered specially? Thanks
  4. Hi, looking to start prebaiting my lake and was wandering if i could use my mainline maple ADE and hydra sweet with AA baits superseed base mix?? I have maple ADE and hydra sweet already and I didn't know if these flavours would work for a prebaiting campaing? thanks/!!

    Winter tactics

    living in cornwall there's not much of these tho , the waters i fish are club waters//?
  8. This winter I am going to be fishing low stock pits with large carp, some depths go down to 70ft and there are other shallow regions, should i fish shallow bays that are around 6ft, or should i head to deeper water where it is around 13 ft, or should i cast straight into the 70ft water (can carp go this deep??). Also should I take a mobile approach?/ and finnaly should i stick with the throwing stick/cattie to get boilies out or should I use a solid/mesh bagor both? ( I am not very good with a stick yet tho)
  9. 50/50 is cheap : 0 thats the only reason I am using it!!
  10. Different boilies, pellets and particles always work well. I use Nash instant action monster crab, instant action crab and krill and coconut creme all at the same time, if carp don't want the fishmeals then they will eat the coconut cremes, meaning that they will still feed. I use chickpea, sweetcorn, maize and hemp as well, this, in my opinion, creates the best feeding response as No matter what the carp want, it should be there. I also like to fish a pva into this as I want to make sure my bait is presented well so I use a bag of 2mm pellets. I think that it should confuse pressures carp and they should trip up as it looks like many anglers have just dropped different baits in as they leave, and the different boilies have different breakdown rates and scent trails, making sure that all levels of the lake have attraction drawn to them for a prolonged amount of time. I'm the end it's just down to what your confident with though
  11. I am making mainline fifty fifty boilies and using maple ade and sweet ade, and boiling them sometimes for over 3 minutes and they come out with and odd, smooth consistency and they become really soft in the water, does anyone know how to combat this?? Thanks
  12. Bait vault on youtube is the best place to look. It shows you cheap spod mixes and boilies and how to make them! great baits and cheap prices. Also try decathlon baits, 10kg bags i think are under £15!!
  13. What pellets should you look for, and would the rest just need normal particle preparation (pigeon conditioner)

    Carp n cats

    Hi, I was just wandering what baits i should use on a lake with cat and carp, I would like to catch a catfish but I also would like to be in with a chance.of catching carp (saving a blank), also would my korda ntrap soft coated hooklink with a size 5 curve shank hair rig work?... It will be tied to an inline lead with silicone tubing, thanks! Also any advice on hair length and hooking length would be appreciated. And where catfish like to hide! Many thanks, teo

    how many beeps?

    Thanks, would i still need to recheck my rig if i used a boom section, or a stiff section so that it would be presented well.
  16. Finding the opportunity to do a nighter we took to our club waters, pondering about which lake to go to, one lake stood out above the others with no opportunity to prebait and only 18hrs we chose it was the wheal rashleigh. Following our last nighter on a hard lake, around 20 acres with a low stock and depths to 70ft, we decided to go to one of the clubs 'easier' lakes. with fish to 25lb+ and a slightly bigger stock and a slightly smaller lake, we took to the lake with a van full of gear and on arrival it was clear which spot to fish, a double swim with fish leaping around it- the only downside was the trek- we did not have the barrow. We foolishly thought we would be at a 'car park swim'. What a mistake. After 4 trips between us we managed to trapse our gear up the path and down the steps to the swim. I would be fishing on the right hand side, fishing my two rods to the far margin. After casting a PVA bag of 2mm pellets out on one rod and a sringer of 20mm boilies on the other rod I commenced with setting up my brolly. Once the brolly was setup and my gear was organised, I took to the chair and decided to watch for any signs of activity, annoyingly the only activity that could be seen was a carp repetitively mocking us by jumping out of the water at an unfishable area every ten minutes. Leaving the rods out for an hour it was clear that I was not using the right tactics, winding in both I took a gamble, putting both of my rods on a red dynamite baits wafter with 30-40 boilies pulted loosely around the spot. Another hour passed as biting time drew nearer, I slackened my line off on my rods as I had been fishing tight lines; there was an almost instant postitive reaction as my bobbin dropped and came back up, I instantly struck, but the fish had run into the middle of the lake and lost the hook. I had, almost instantly another repeat of this and as light drew to a close I put out quarter of a kilo spread around my bait. sleeping through the night without a run (but loads of single beeps apparently- I was fast asleep) I was woken up at first light to a run, reeling this in it was clear it was not big but it was a fighter, struggling to keep this away from my other rod I managed to get it within a few foot of the bank only to have the hook pull. The landing net was to stay dry for the moment. Recasting and baiting with 10 freebies I dosed off for an hour, only to be waken up to a ferocious run, dragging the rig along the lake , as i started beggining the fight it was clear that it was bigger than the last, not too big but still a fighter. Reaching the net under the fish it was clear that this was a beautiful carp, a lovely dark mirror, a long and pristine fish was put onto the mat and transferred to the sling to reach a 13lb 14oz. Not a huge fish but a fighter and a good looking natural carp. It was clear that biting time was over in the morning as we started our tedious trips back to the car, sitting there with just a net, a mat, a sling, scales and the rods out, I wound in my first rod to find a stick snagged on it- no wonder that bite alarm had no action. As i put that rod back in the bag, my other rod screamed off at a rate of knots, taking the lead miles away from the peg, I struck- it felt unusual, like nothing I have ever had before, I thought that it was just a small carp with loads of energy - Or the dreaded bream- but it felt better then a bream. Popping it into the net, it was my first ever tench, coming out at 5lb on the dot. Well I was the only one to have any action, and I landed two of the three fish so it was a succesfull session and with one of the best looking fish I have caught so far. It was time to go as we said our goodbyes to the lake and drove home to breakfast and warm shower as we discussed about our next session...

    I am fishing semi slack lines with gardner nano bug bobbins
  19. Hi, following my recent fishing session, i was fishing at about 40m range, and I kept on having my bobbin drop, causing my alarm to go (these were not small drop backs but violent ones, causing the alarm to beep quite a substantial amount) I kept on striking at this to find nothing on the end, should I wait or should I strike at first sign of a dropback or take, and if I strike and nothing is there should I leave it or recast to the same spot as I was fishing. Thanks, Teo
  20. Hi, I have been reading a lot about casting to showing fish, but i am worried castng to them will spook them out of the area, are there any ways of getting around this/ advice on doing it corectly.. thanks Teo><
  21. I have salmon oil by CCmoore, how much would you reccomend using ( i fish short sessions with pva) thanks
  22. it was dynamite baits, marine halibut oil//?
  23. Hi, My question today is, can you use too much oil and does oil work only at certain temperatures. I tried the night at eatser, with it being minus 4 in the night and my boilies and pellets covered in oil, i had no bites all night, but when i used an oil-less mix, i caught almost instantly/: was this a coincidence or was it the oil putting them off.] Thanks
  24. Hi, i was wandering about coloring my boilies with food coloring, just the standard shop bought stuff. Would this work, or would itchange the mix's taste. I am using mainline 50/50 base mix with maple ade. Thanks Teo.
  25. Hi, Does anyone know about using a base mix in a PVA bag raw, would it release the scent or just be bitter. I am using mainline 50 50 base mix. Thanks Teo
