  1. Just checked for the week, doesn't hit the dizzy heights required does it, and there was me thinking the Bermuda shorts might be coming out soon 😭 Gives me a bit of time to spot find though πŸ‘ The wind changes about Thursday, all them Wigan kebab eaters fault 😁
  2. Take your time it needs to be perfectly level to store all those items correctly πŸ‘
  3. I am just going on what he said but I did take it as a sign, could do with no rain for a while it was still very flooded, I would've needed waders to get right round it, I guess where we had such a sustained cold spell before it seems to have made this warmer spell very noticable, lletd just hope it doesn't get too cold again
  4. I spoke to someone who has been keeping an eye on the lake I fish yesterday, he said it seems to be going up a degree a week at the moment, he said up to 10 degrees in places, I said thanks and vowed to start trickling some bait in πŸ˜‚
  5. A chod rig will help you be able to fish over, rougher bottoms like weed,chod debris effectively, its designed as a chuck anywhere rig, so as long as you have your top bead set up correctly in theory it should present anywhere Personally in my opinion the longer the hooklink on a helicopter set up the more you take away the leads effectiveness to aid with hooking , I would rather use an inline or lead clip if possible, and I would work towards making holes in the weed with prebaiting then you can fish simple lead clip set ups or Pva bags on your cleaned spots and you will start to
  6. I've just seen this on fb thought you might be interested https://boatmanuk.com/product-category/boats/actor/
  7. I had a tape measure out a little while ago, I think it was a bad idea πŸ˜¬πŸ˜‚ Due to an incoming trampoline it looks like it may need to be half paved or something 😳so that will need digging, levelling and all sorts 😭 I think I am joining your chain gang
  8. If you are the only one fishing at present you can afford to put a little bit in I would say, I heard today the 25 acre lake I fish is 10 degrees in places at the moment, so find the bit where the sun hits most and bait that, if it doesn't go cold again its not a bad time to start pre baiting a bit I don't think, I will be as soon as i form a plan πŸ™„ if it isn't going far you just need to be gentle with it, think finesse lol delicate, smooth and easy like a Sunday morning πŸ˜ŽπŸŒžπŸ˜πŸ˜‚
  9. We are getting people in to quote on a new fence this week, this may mean I have to finish the bit of no man's land between the fence and the astroturf 😬 Still don't know what to do with it it's 4m x 1m if you have any ideas πŸ˜‚
  10. Does anyone else fish it? How big is it? If not keep it simple keep the bait going in and make the spots yourself, they will come if you bait it often enough, then just cast bags into the area when you are fishing it will soon firm up a bit Are using using your line clip when you cast? It does make being accurate a lot easier
  11. Has your hookbait been coming back stinking of rotting silt? If you are leading about try and find silt that doesn't stink, takes some practice at first but once you have done it a bit you can soon spot the difference, imo ignore the spot if it stinks πŸ‘
  12. Unless the old drag system bothers you I still wouldn't, if you want to upgrade I would have a look at the shimano aerlex, having had the sonik vader spod reel and now the aerlex spod, it's a much better reel,
  13. Whilst having a stroll around my syndicate today, I walked down to this lake to have a nosey, it is looking lovely I have to say, I will try and redouble my efforts load of little islands and features looks splendid
  14. Is this to change your current reels? I personally don't think there will be much difference between the ones you use allready just a bit of rebranding,
  15. Will keep you busy 😁 I've just been reacquainting myself with the place, quite a lot of water everywhere still, was lovely to be out though
  16. What are you using now ? If it's 8000 I doubt there would be a lot of difference tbh
  17. Well the results are in from week one weigh in, 😬😬😬😬😜😜😜😜 -5lb down to 21st 9lb 😁😁😁😁 I'll take that for week 1, still a long weigh 😳 to go but a solid start Cheers all πŸ‘
  18. Just a shame that's all they could've done it decently, not like scammers, don't think I'll rush out to get one either πŸ‘
  19. They are pretty big, grey imports though, it's like the Holme Fen of squirrel fishing πŸ˜‚
  20. I think it is pretty scandalous tbh, they should at least make it worth more than Β£50, they are getting those items at trade, and just throwing them in is just an insult really, just a way of getting rid of stuff they can't shift in the shop
  21. And any freebies that get put out on the astroturf cannot be reclaimed, much like a driving range, you can't cross the patio line
  22. Β£30 Dawn til dusk, no nuts or particles , boilies Β£15 a kilo
  23. I could give this a crack I regularly get the little blighters all over the bird feeders
  24. Well it's Friday and I've done pretty well so far this week,today I've managed to refuse point blank a kebab from the best kebab van in the world and I didn't go to the canteen for fish and chip Friday 😲😬😬😬 Willpower mode on 😣
  25. He's a bit like Glenn hoddle this one Lots of ball control but a bit of a dribbler ⚽ πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
