    I think it was Steve who was a member on here had the big Graviers fish at a World Record weight, only to be beaten the same week by a Rainbow fish.

    To be honest the questions might interlink. 
    I know a number of match type waters ban 'successful' baits, be it pellet, boilie because 'such and such' won loads of matches doing his thing with that bait. 
    As also mentioned it does serve to keep carp anglers off the lakes, which may be the biggest advantage of the bait ban, but without outright banning carp anglers.
     
    Most boilies now are nutritionally good, not all, but most. 
    You could quite easily make up a boilie base mix, but use it as paste instead of boiling it. That way you have the nutrition and increased attraction. Mould it around a couple of grains of sweetcorn, Cork ball (use putty to weight it and create a pop-up), or even straight on the hook.

    Always nice to receive thanks for advice and opinions. 
    Something else that may be relevant is the lake bed, if much of it is silty, the fish that feed regularly over silt may possibly have softer mouths than gravel bottom feeders.

    A water I fish for carp to double figures, I still concentrate on fishing the float with sweetcorn and lift float. 
     
    If you put in much groundbait, you get other species more than carp so I use loose fed sweetcorn. 
     
    On occasion I do use pop-ups I don't put any, or very little, feed around them. In fact I almost fish them zig rig style, well off the bottom.

    I must admit I would only be using Specialist or Avon style rods on a water like this, with 8lb line. 
     
    Hook size sounds possibly a bit big, for me it would probably be a 14 or 12.

    Re read this and seeing the fish you are catching I would go down to a method feeder rod or float rod or like Nick has suggested an Avon style if you can find one nowadays 
    Match style route would be better

    Spawn already? 
    Not yet😉
    Carp won't be ready for spawning until the water has been 18 degrees for at least a week, probably late May, early June. 
    As for sacking or retaining fish, just for a few minutes while you sort the camera gear out, an hour at the most if you have someone come and take pics. 
     
    This fish was retained while I ran half a mile to get another angler to do the pics.
    I can do my own self takes, but do prefer someone else to take pics as I think results are better.

    I don’t have a problem with someone coming to wake me if they have a carp need photographing, one lad woke me to take a pic of a low double then apologised afterwards as it was “only a little one” it happened to be the first carp he’s ever had from the lake, after a fair ole wait, so he was over the moon! That’s no drama as far as I’m concerned, I was happy to congratulate him and share the moment. 
     
    I blanked... 🙄

    A water not far from me has always had a boilie and floating bait ban, hence the banks aren’t very crowded and you have free reign to be able to move about. The owners wanted a pleasure water where anglers could come and not see swim after swim packed with little green domes. They are only small venues, quite intimate. Pellets or meat in the margins will produce some lovely carp. I actually don’t mind the fact boilies are banned, it gives me a chance to refine other baits and methods which in many cases, I’ve neglected for years. I mean, I have probably fished luncheon meat maybe 2 or 3 times in the last 15yrs? Yet it was my go to bait as a kid.

    I'm against bait boats for 'normal' angler's. However when it comes to those with a disability to continue to enjoy our pursuit then I have no arguments against it. 
     
    Problem with most things in life is the idiot few, either those who 'mock' disabilities, or those who go to the edge of rules or push their luck. 
    Disabilities or differences are not all visible.

    Not going to turn that down, a few extra pennies in lockdown while I'm on furlough. 
    Meant my fishing trip on 1st night of release was put on hold. 
     
    A lot of archaeological digs have always been territorial, from UK to Egypt and beyond. The head of the site is often writing part of their dissertation on it, or making their name in the field. 
    It was Tony Robinson and Time Team who opened up the story...

    There are some decent braids around for mainline use that aren't mainstream tackle brands😉
    You just have to double check every one first, getting other angler's advice and experiences. I think I paid £15 for 3 spools of the braid I have on my marker rod and pike rods. 
    That has definitely been better than a major tackle brand braid I had been using

    Forward this weekend to BST. 
    Blanking can be a sad sign of winter, even if you know where the carp are getting onto them may be difficult, especially if other angler's are on the lake. 
    I must admit I have not been putting much in recently while fishing, but a number of pike trips have enabled me to prebait a little bit with mostly Vitalin and maize. 
    I know where there were fish on Saturday, let's hope they are still here today... 
    A full day from sunrise until...

    I think I could say in all honesty on Virginia that prebaiting was responsible for almost every fish. 
    On Alton I am not sure, but have a feeling it may have given a couple of fish on first night rather than day 2 or 3.
     
    I wish I could say I had caught carp this year, but on the syndicate I joined in September I really had no idea where they were hiding over winter. Lockdown and no night fishing when we could get out again meant I honestly could not find them. For the past few weeks I have been trickling in a few boilies with Vitalin when I went up for a day's pike fishing. This week I did see carp, so at the moment I know where they are.
