    I cast 13.5 wraps last time I was fishing and it gave me a nosebleed 😁
    For sensitivity I find my soniks pretty bang on tbh of I can I turn it up to full, it registers most small movements, I think like nick said a lot of sensitivity comes down to lead set up, I think the running rig is much better if you need sensitivity especially if you can get your rod pointed at the spot you are fishing, I found the heli set up gave some weird indications, if I can I use running rigs, but I guess with inlines and bolt rigs they are hopefully helping to get more takes as soon as the bait is picked up,

    Red n Blue 1st set...Sonik...Think I only changed batteries once in about 6month...2nd to lowest sensitivity and no night light at night.

    Red n Blue...ATTs...only used twice and put in new batteries.

    2nd Set....Purple Soniks used twice so far...
    ALL alarms n Receivers I use Energizer Ultimate Batteries.

    I chose peg 6 actually, I thought it would give me the choice of shallow margins with tree cover and other features but also covers the deepest areas of the lake.
    It was flat calm almost all day, no fish showing at all throughout the entire day and when there was an occasional slight breeze it was freezing and in a different direction everytime! 
    Needless to say I blanked, just two liners but I don't think I fished particularly well either, reeled in twice with my braided hooklink in a tangle and the stiff link fished in the margins came in with weed on it twice and a seed on the hookpoint once too! I also struggled with the bivvy pegs on the gravel of the peg and set up over an area that wasn't level, took me about 30mins just to peg in the bivvy. Not a great day all in all but the fishery is brilliant so will definitely go back soon.

    Has anybody considered a black Newfoundland ? .
    No need for a bait boat , your dog can swim out in the dead of night and drop some bait and your rig into tight places ! .

    Out on the local canal with matey boy it’s been a few months since our last session so it was good to have a laff with the big fella. Ended up with 2 jacks that more than made up for the soaking we got 😂😂😬😎🎣

    I fish my Syndicate lake for Pike every winter but I like using plugs , great fun but most are jacks around the 2 to 6 lb bracket ,doubles are few and far between and my biggest is 18:15 from their caught some years ago.
    Great fun on a Drop Shot rod , 
    Low double .

    As my current water is not particularly carp friendly, I've been exploring its pike potential with a few trips this year.
     
    Over 4 trips a mate and I have had some good fish, pike from 2 to 21lbs, normally a couple each trip, although we did manage a blank between us each day.
     
    The mate in question is the friend who managed to catch the twenty I lost last year, really into his fishing now, and enjoying it.
     
    Our first pike trip produced 3 to me, and Colin saved a blank with the small jack last knockings.
     
    My fish were two around 6lb, and a scrappy 16 with a missing pec.


     
    The next trip, Colin managed another couple of jacks, and again I had 3, topped with a 17. The 17 was a bit of a nightmare, not the fish, but the idiot dog walker who as I was unhooking it, got so close to the rod tip, moved it away from his face, and pulled the treble under my nail, more problems unhooking me than the pike.
     
    Unfortunately we both blanked next trip, but hey ho.
     
    A week later we were back at the venue, after a couple of casts I cast a whole joey mackeral, and within minutes, a finicky take with just a few bleeps and a nodding rod tip, no line pulled out the clip I hit into this beauty at 21lb




     
    The smile is very real, only my second ever pike over 20, worthy of a new PB at 21.

    I'll start off this month. 
    Just got back from a 36 hour. 
    Wind was awful, rain was awful. 
    Ground was like a bog but I managed 2 fish. 
    Nothing big but made it worthwhile. 
    Had the pleasure of photographing the best looking mirror ive ever seen on the bank for another angler that went 25lb.
    This was one of mine that luckily came in one of the better 10 minutes of weather on Saturday afternoon.

    couple kilo of pigeon conditioner cooked up, gonna start baiting up a spot on the canal where I can fish from the van. Can’t wait for all this rain to stop my river hasn’t been fishable since November/December time, it’s tidal so I’m hoping all the carp hasn’t been washed out to sea 😂

    I should of been going fishing tomorrow only my second trip to my new club water, I've been so busy at work with this bad weather it's messed all my plans up. So I was really looking forward to tomorrow everything sorted, some new pop ups and glugs to try out and guess what I've only gone and fallen down the stairs this morning top to bottom. blooming stupid dog only went  and left a toy on the stairs in the night and blooming stupid me slipped on it. I'm struggling to walk never mind fish, I'm absolutely gutted. 😭😭.
    Looking on the bright side I'm hopefully doing my first over nighter next weekend Sunday till Monday, maybe till Tuesday if I'm lucky. 😁🤞

    It's dragging the little blighters away from Bookface or Chapsnat thats the hard bit... most kids have their faces buried in a screen these days... whereas a lot of kids (when I were a nipper) were chucked outta the house to give our parents a bit o P&Q... so we went fishing... not for carp, god no.... carp were seen as the pinnacle of ones fishing achievements... nowadays kids get better gear than I had first time out and learn their craft (if one can call it such) at the Altar of The Korda Underwater series or The church of Youtube without understanding the reasoning behind the teachings....
