  5. I have started using 3 rods, I have back leaded all 3 rods, on my local park lake the other day I ended up in a almighty mess as I reeled in 1 rod i managed to bring in the line to the other two rods.

  6. Can anyone tell me is this rig only used for pop up fishing can it be used with a bottom bait? whats the best way to tie a boilke to the rig ring? all info welcome
  7. i was over the lake on tuesday , and fished the 20mm boilies cut the bottom piece off the boilie to make it smaller so it had a flat bottom, to this area i put a bit of fake corn on to pop it up a bit. Beacuse of the flat bottom will the bait sink in the silt which the lake has?
  8. I am a little confused, i have purchased some 20mm boiles they look so much bigger then 18mm will the 20mm still catch fish? Are bigger baits better off in france then uk heard they have bigger mouths? Can you cut the boilie down a bit to a smaller size and will it still be effective once the skin has been chipped off? Will small carp not touch the bigger baits? I fish a local park lake a lot, the carp are mainly doubles to 20lb, will they still take the 20mmm boilies or you think i'd be better off with 18mm. any help here welcomed
  9. I have just purchased some frozen boilies from Quest Baits, (special crab + and also Tigernut crunch. I purchased the boilie dips to go with them both, my question is that I am told that they you only dip the boilies in the dip and not to soak them in the dip? I have soaked the bolies in the dip, hoping that in reality you cant really overdose or can you to extent that the carp will be put off my the overpowering smell and taste? I am wondered ive overdosed beacuse my fridge is stinking of the boilies now and wonderd if Ive wasted my money by soaking them? Does anyone have any
  10. but there's a side gate that is open all the time what ya can walk through with ya stuff, just drive the car into car park when main gate opens. A day ticket takes you upto 9pm, fish the motorway bank for plenty of runs, i had 48 fish out there last season in two days tight lines"

  13. its made by Hinders, they also make boilies now by the same name hope that helps tight lines
  14. on BRASENOSE 2 heres a pic of my effort anyways, I look forward to going again, I am disappointed though in not catching more, as I went by minicab from London to Linear for £90 and £90 back home to London again, add to that £57 for 3 day ticket and food it was bloody expensive, having said that the place can be bang on at times and well worth it tight lines mate 8.12 oz http://s92.photobucket.com/albums/l36/stevefranco/?action=view&current=100_3365.jpg
  15. fished there 48 hrs had 1 mirror 8lb 12oz, 1 run during the night apart from that not even a liner and got soaked as a rat as part of the bargain! Let it be known all the Carp our now spawning on all the lakes at Linear, its really not worth the effort fishing there while they are, most people on Brasenose blanked so i was one of the lucky ones.
  16. Im going to Linear Fishery over the B/holiday heard quite a lot of fish are spawning over there. Is it worth fishing the place if they are or is it still possible to get a few runs while they are or is it the kiss of death and will blank? has anyone fished over there when there been spawning and caught any carp from there> your thoughts observations please
