    kevtaylor got a reaction from emmcee in Need a new bait company   
    I was looking at changing baits completely after 15+ years on a custom Aminos bait (you read all the BS about other baits being the ultimate) but spoke to Toni - he suggested the T&G version to combat the silt and weed.
    I caught from the off, no surprise there, absolutely love the bait - it smells brilliant and being the Aminos base you know its gonna do the business, tried and tested for many many years.
    Tony is very helpful and doesn't push anything on you, just good advice!

    I've noticed exactly the same on the 2 stalking waters I've spent a lot of time on, fish hang around, travel, spawn and feed in year groups.
    No doubt whatsoever on that.

    Can't beat a few extra bits and bobs,  got a few in mine. Infact I've been piling the bait in my current lake and my mate who is on the bait with me has had 2 40's in the last 2 weekend's. Both fish at their highest recorded weights.  Well chuffed for him. They certainly know there stuff at prem '

    IMO you don't want really buoyant pop-ups for the multi rig, having huge blobs of putty makes a definite tangle point.  I prefer a reliable medium buoyancy pop-up with a small amount of putty.
    Just my findings for what its worth. 👍

    I've fished a number of waters on which I swear fish travel and feed in year groups.

    The first fish 23lb taken on a decent camera, and the 28 from the other side.
    Both fish fell to my Garlic and Megaspice pop-ups on helicopter rigs with a 4 bait stringer. The 28 was excreting Vitalin heavily where I had tipped a bucket of sloppy Vitalin 'liquid' in over the spot. The 23 I really didn't get a chance to look.
     
    I think the 23 had me made up, my largest fish from this year, but the 28 really blew me away, I'm still buzzing.
     
    Andy (@crusian), I think the fish colour up to the water over time. I don't know whether the 28lb is a VS fish or not, if it is that is a heck of a growth rate! I think the fish mix as I know the area has produced originals in the past.

    Same as mate. Been using them about 20yrs myself and not a single negative against them. I know when I'm on the lake if I'm not catching then the chances are it's my fault and the bait will be the last reason I'm not catching.

    I've been using the aminos basemixes for longer than I can care to remember, I used to buy robin red separately and add it myself, then Tony pointed out that I could just buy aminos RR with the red already added... Hmmmm... Felt a bit silly at that point! Spending more money to make a base they already sold! Just knocked up another load of bait this afternoon, aminos RR, with their awesome salmon oil and cream stimulant additive, plus a few extra bits and bobs, betaine, shellfish sense appeals, smoked ham flavour, egg albumin, and salt. With a dash of red dye to really make the bait a nice bold red. I use the same bait all year round and it keeps catching wherever I take it, what more could you ask? 
    I do sometimes think I should update it, but then again, why? It's been going into my venues for years, the catches haven't dropped off and when I feed them, they will demolish it, so why fix what isn't broken?

    Not with my casting technique mate - that's all I know.  Don't forget that with the Multi your talking about an extremely low pop-up, maybe if it were higher it wouldn't be able to turn and catch under the putty, but it can.  Granted it's quite rare that it happens but occasionally it does.
    A lot of this will depend on how stiff the hooklink is, I know that with the materials I use, big blobs of putty are a no no
    Urban baits pop-ups stay up for days, hold up a size 4 and only require a small amount of putty, I've tested a lot and these work perfectly for me 👍

    I'm just making the most of limited time mate:
    Twice a week in the evening when the mrs puts the little'n to bed I'm driving like a madman to the lake, baiting up like a lunatic, and scooting back home before she's finished. I'm fishing Friday mornings. I only work half days on Fridays anyway so I can get the day off for a half day holiday. Getting there at first light, few hours fishing, job done🐋

    This is the kind of lighting you can expect with the rhino beam plus built in flash buddy. Not perfect, but very good for the low price.

    Whenever I have ordered freezer baits, if they turn up frozen I'll say "Good" and whack 'em in the freezer.
    On the other hand, if they turn up thawed out, or "fresh" I'll say "Good" and whack 'em in the freezer.
    I've never noticed a reduction in catch rates. or longevity of the bait.

    That's it right there.
    Confidence comes from experience; knowing what you are doing in a given situation will catch them.
    That is a hallmark of inexperience imo.
    A confident and experienced angler will determine why the chosen method isn't working as intended and fix it. I have no time for doubt. I am not prepared to sit behind rods that I'm not 100% happy with.
    Of course we all blank, it is part of carp fishing, but as long as you learn from it you confidence levels can continue to elevate. If you know why you blanked then you know how to adapt for next time.

    First trip out with the Gripz beak points:
    Unfortunately no weed to contend with on this trip so the interesting part wasn't tried, however six takes six landed, no slippage or damage caused, 3 fish on a single hook, before changed.
    The successful rig was the KD with a wafter hookbait taking 5 of the fish, the relevance of this I'm not sure of because those 5 came from the left side of the baited spot for whatever reason.
    All good so far, the trail continues...
