    nails got a reaction from gagnaccarp in Carp Virus Murray-Darling System...... Australia   
    Thanks guys....some great valid comments that fall in line with the general consensus with the brethren down here....one in particular..from a Victorian carper....
     
    They seem to believe that the killing of 95% of carp will bring their waterways back to a pristine condition, ignoring the fact that most of the damage is done by humans.  Remove the industrial pollution, urban and farming run off, bank erosion from cattle and ski boats, habitat removal, redirection of waterways and reduction of natural flows and then you can blame the carp.

    the autumn equinox and the new moon in november are in my opinion the best times for a whacker, and if your lake is open in the close season then the first week of may. these are my own findings in my angling and people ive fished with. all lakes will vary, but not alot i bet

    nails got a reaction from welder in Air dry boilies and glug   
    Just a little something to think about...I did some tests a couple of years ago to see how much moisture was lost through air drying...I found over a week from freshly made boilies left overnight....I weighed exactly 500grms of bait and air dryed them for exactly one week...after that I weighed them again and they had lost 150grms due to the drying process...so that then gave me a rough guessimate of how much liquid attraction I would need to get them back to their original moisture level so to say...but a quicker and easier way is to freeze them..take them out shake and exsess ice/frost off them and give them a quick coating with the liquid and let them absorb it in....and then repeat the process without freezing the following day....cheers
