  1. I know on my lake the best catches are always on the lake baits, I dont think its down to what bait is best but what the fish are use to, so on this basis I would always say buy the lakes baits where ever you go, even as far as pellet use the lake pellet because you may think they are the same but the carp can tell they are not. If guy start fishing with there bait and then change to our bait if they are fishing the same spot it still takes a little bit of time as the fish shy away because of a differant bait on the spot where if they try a new spot they catch quickly. Ofcourse you will catch on other baits but I feel it tends to be less fish and the smaller ones. May I also add I am not just saying this from a money making side of things I have had many anglers that have been fixed on using there own bait and having a hard time of things and in the end I have said try our bait and I will only charge you if it works. From my point of view I am more interested in my clients doing well and having a good time rather than just taking a few extra euros from them
  2. It maybe worth you looking at Carpquarry, 3 acre lake and house for exclusive use perfect for 4 anglers, The ave fish is about 32lb but its not a runs water but the rewards are big. www.carpquarry.co.uk
  3. You are going to a very nice place so you should have a good time
  4. Mine is Carpquarry have put the link below www.carpquarry.co.uk
  5. Thats no problem, I know every lake is different naturals etc and you could catch on boilies from day one but it took the carp in my lake a year before they were very confident in taking boilies
  6. I would say whatever lake you go to buy the bait at that lake as that is what they have been fed the most and will take with no problems, Not sure what lake you are talking about maybe Les Rivets. If this is the case and its a new stock of carp get the pellet that the fish were fed on from the lake , not another pellet that you think is the same. The carp may not be hard on the boilies so take arma mesh or something like that so that you can put pellets into and fish like a boilie and who knows you may have it off this way. I would keep one swim/rod just pellet and do NOT put anything else in that swim.
  7. This week we had Tony Higgins and Mark from Hemel Hempstead. Tony had alot of his family staying in the house while Tony and Mark done abit of fishing. Mark was fishing swim 4 and Tony was fishing swim 5. Mark in swim 4 had 5 fish out and lost 3. The fish were mirrors of 34lb,35lb,34lb,31lb and then a baby original at 22lb. Tony in swim 5 only fished half the week as to keep his family happy but still had 15 runs and got fish from 23lb to 33lb. Tony did say that he had lost a couple of very big carp with one being massive and this is coming from an angler who has caught many 50s and also was one of the first anglers to catch Benson from Bluebell, But in 40 years of carp fishing has never felt anything like the one he lost. Dont worry Tony I am sure you will be back for another go at landing one of the big girls from Carpquarry.
  8. Read your comments with interest as we all like to keep a eye on the other lakes, but I did think that if they said they had 100 fish and your group got 30 thats 30% of the stock in a week I think you done well. I know with my lake again small at only 3 acres but deep no group has landed 30% of the stock.
