  1. Normally with stiff hinge rig, sometimes choddie. I use chod length with aggressive curve and loop knot. Have started using longer booms (14 inches). Straight point hooks.
  2. Not an exact number. Depends on your lake, session length, stock size etc... If you are going to use larger quantities then put them in 1-2 days before you fish if you can. Then start of with 7-10 baits per rod and add a little and often and work your way into your session. In winter use more crumb and liquids. Make the crumb mix damp so its stick together but still easily falls apart. Bit like a crumbly cake.
  3. Does it make a difference and if so, when and what scenario?
  4. What about straight point hooks vs beaked point? I use straight points (chod hooks or muggas a fair bit). Always though hook points was a load of old pony as long as it is sharp.
  5. Hey all, Can anybody give me some feedback on the Trakker Big Snooze + sleeping bag? I have a trakker bed it will fit and need a new bag for all year round use. Thanks.
  6. Hey all, I've lost a lot of fish this year, which I do not have a history for. I normally use Stiff Hinge rig or Chod as my lake has fair bit of weed plus silty bottom. It is also shallow (2-6ft). I have been sharpening hooks up more by taking the point down and definitely pricking fish more often. BUT, when I pick up the rod after a take the fish is lost 5-10 seconds later. So my question is, is it the rig? Soft mouths? Is it the way the fish feed in shallow water whereby they do not tilt as much? Or am I over thinking it?
  7. Any updates on this fishery please? Is it still run by James Cook?
  8. 10 degrees Celsius and above use fish oils and hemp oil when it’s is colder.
  9. Get the 13mm for multi rig with size 4 hook. Works fine for me.
  10. Awesome! You won’t be disappointed. They are most buoyant non cork ball pop ups I’ve ever used. I recommend the coped squid, black pepper plus, choc orange and devils dung.
  11. I used to roll bait and found main line base mixes really easy to use as they really mill them down fine. Baits direct sell them by the bucket 10kg. Then you can customise. I rolled Activ 8 and added garlic.
  12. What about Mistral baits? Their MB1 is a nice milky bait.
  13. Boilie crumb/chops, liquids and pellet. Also gonna try frozen bloodworm soon.
  14. Hi all, Considering finally upgrading my Fox Warrior XT after about 12 years but not sure where to start. I want bigger eyes and 3lb test curve or higher. I did start looking at Century but they may be out of my price range. Would love to hear your thoughts and recommendations. Thanks
