  1. The conditions were perfect, there was only 4 anglers on the lake out of 20, a nice steady southerly wind and overcast. The fish were showing like madball day long. I reckon i could have had another run but i only took a small amount of bait with me, maybe 2.5kilos altogether. Both runs came after spombing and after the fish this morning they moved slightly over half way. Cheers all for your replies and tips!
  2. And another little stocky around the 10lb mark put up a good little scrap
  3. So im 6 hours into my 24hr, the fish were showing alot in a certain area when i got to the lake at 11ish, not many anglers on all blanking, moved into the peg where they were showing, a few hours just casting to showing fish with no results, lightly baited a spot at 22 wraps roughly the distance they were showing, 5-6 medoum spombs and the result so far is a gorgeous 11lb mirror caught on a ronnie with a pink pop up πŸ‘Œ
  4. πŸ˜‚ i have fat thumbs which cover the phone keyboard
  5. Chods are probably the only rig i havent actually tried yet, so will wack one out! Cheers for all the replies lads! Some good pointers to try! Ive got a batch of the bait all the anglers are catching on and its very garlicy so gonna get a pot of diffrent hookbaits together and glug in a garlicy flavour, if anyone has any reccomendations of their faveourite garlic?
  6. Atleast someone/something will πŸ˜‚ ive managed to convince her to let me use the bottom draw and ive got a few kilo coming tonight from a local supplier ibe had an eye on recently, plus alot of the folk use him at the lake im fishing, going to try a diffrent hook pattern on my heli, going for one with an outturned eye to open the gape up a little so 🀞 Might add a few krill to the mix on the next trip πŸ‘Œ
  7. Yeah they do a liquid πŸ˜‚ and its worked on other venues for me πŸ˜‚ ive tried literally everything in the bloodworm range on this lake, unfortunately its shelf life im using, you can come try and convice my pregnant fiancΓ© to let me use the freezer if you like? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  8. See im more than happy to help anyone out in this situation but when it comes to asking myself i feel too cheeky especially when theyve put there own hard work in, plus if i do ever get it right and have a red letter day, it would be my hardwork and not somebody elses πŸ˜‚
  9. Aye got some soaking right now πŸ˜‚ Tried dead maggots, corn, hemp, chilli hemp, boilies absoloutely allsorts mixed together πŸ˜‚ My fave was sticky bloodworm and with it being silty i didnt see any reason to change, its just not produceing πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ Cheers for all your replies lads appreciate it
  10. See at first i thought the same, but i seem to get very stange indications aswell as liners, so ill have my rods out all 3 on a baited spot and ill get the odd bleep on all of them, ive had clear liners to which ill move 2 of the rods back and still get the odd bleep, ive tried lifting after just one bleep and ive also left the bobbin to drop back and rise again before picking up and ive even completely left it to which nothing materialises, tried tight and slack lines which makes me think maybe wrong hook pattern and the hooks not setting. The carp always seem to be on the move, the only other fish in are little chub and on an evening these are VERY active, it can be hard to tell if small fish or carp being very carefull, even when i do see a carp come fully out ill cast the closest rod too it and still nothing. There is regularly bait going in all over the lake from pretty much every peg, ive tried fishing on baited spots and also positioning rods just off of baited spots, with lads next door at the same range still produceing fish. They seem to be everywhere apart from on my hook πŸ˜‚
  11. Hi pal cheers for the reply The park is public however the lake is leased and run by a few lads, since 2019 so youve got to book on etc, cant just turn up to fish which is good. Its very well run tbf they only let 20 anglers on at a time too, obvisouly its usually full at weekends. The lads that consitently catch are the guys that fish it religously and fished it before it was taken over so hats off to them, feel too cheeky to ask exactly what they are doing. the non regulars always mention how hard it is when i walk round and talk to them, alot of people do have a long run of blanks Just wanting to find something that really works before winter kicks in so that i have top confidence on the freezeing nights πŸ˜‚
  12. Hi all, Ive stumbled upon this forum due to scanning the internet for more info so thought i would join up and have a look around and help others if i can! In all honesty im completely stumped atm. I joined a new water at the start of this year as its a massive new challenge me. Its 20 acre park lark with next to no features an average depth of 5-6 feet and a small hole thats roughly 7ft deep, no weed just silt. Average fish size is 17-18lbs and they go up to the 30 mark. Im wondering if any of you have any new ideas or can point me where i am going wrong, this year ive only caught 1 from the lake at 25lb and 2 runs.... its not an easy water even though it isnt exactly low stock. The fish very rarely show them selves and ive spent countless evenings and mornings stareing at the lake. Just when i think i can see a pattern with the wind and the catches it decides to do the opposite πŸ˜‚ So ive tried fishing bags, with dead maggots and pellets, which produced me 2 runs, i belive i could have actually hit these too early as both times when i picked the rod up there was nothing, my go too rig atm is the heli with iq D with a size 6 gardner mugga, either with slow sinking maze or wafters. Which has produced my only fish and i have started tinkering with a ronnie on the lead clip and once the lead has hit the deck i pull it back abit to unplug it, only because ive seen others using this and catching. What would you guys reccomend changing? I was thinking of swapping the iq2 on the heli to a semi stiff coated braid? And haveing the lead clip free running and trying it with a bottom bait? Very long introduction/question so thanks for taking the time to read! Also if anyone is from the leeds area and wants a fishing buddy feel free to message πŸ‘ my mates are more into their golf, which atm seems very tempting!
