  2. Hope you get one mate good luck, quite chilly today the cabin might be a nice luxury
  3. Can you not turn Down the swear filter Nick? filtering **** is unnecessary as is stinky winky 🤬
  4. You dont have to just use boilies though to create an impact, there are lots of cheaper alternatives You could get 25kg of pellets and 4l of molasses delivered free from blakes baits for just over £40 or sacks of particles also, I don't have loads of disposable income each month but the boilies I use are £6.50 a kg so I sacrifice other stuff to try and have at least 10kg in stock all broken down into 1kg or 1/2kg bags and just take what I think I'll need, for the session and I will bulk it out with a bucket of pellets and particles if the time is right or I am prebaiting, its knowing whe
  5. It really depends on the situation and Conditions a kilo wouldnt last me a session though even in winter it would probably be fed once I've finished if not used before,it's a tough one to gauge though sometimes, I'm more confident fishing over bait tbh, and I use it to get loads of attraction going into the spot, if I don't catch this session normally it helps farther along the line, too many anglers base there success on one trip, mine is based on a season or year these days, I already think its been a successful year for me but I have used quite a lot of bait, for me bait is confidence and c
  6. If you are on Facebook I would recommend the Julian cundiff angling group lots of useful info on there that might help you
  7. Are you putting the lead into the bag or just tying a bag around the hookbait? Also what type of hookbait are you using pop up, wafter, bottom bait? For inlines I use the fox tadpole set up with fox inline leads, then just a 4-5 inch rig with a soft braid and some shrink tube to help the hook turn, doesn't need to be complicated a knot less knot rig will work in a bag fine, don't get too bogged down with rigs, there isn't a wonder rig that will catch them if they aren't in front of you
  8. Hi mate Personally I would use a softish braid in a solid bag with an inline lead rather than a leadclip, If you mean a mesh bag just hooked onto the hook I would probably still use a semi stiff coated braid personally A lot will also depend what type of surface you are fishing over, at this time of year I wouldn't use a stiff material unless I was confident it was a clean bottom, as you may find it lands on a twig or something and just spends the night inches off the bottom not presented that well Would also help to know what sort of rig you are using, hope this helps
  9. Ouch that's harsh 3 weeks of nights on the trot, I don't do nights anymore since march just earlies or lates, I dont miss nights tbh,I think I feel better for it but hate earlies more cos its every other week now 😭
