    October Catch Reports

    I've felt like that for over 2 weeks now. Had my week off at the end of September and only done 3 nights out of the 7. Had no energy to move or nothing and consequently had a nightmare session. Nothing worse than being rough on the bank. Good luck

    Winter flavours

    Fruity flavour combined with an essential oil. That's a winner. An ethyl alcohol based flavour preferably as it's a thin liquid and better for leakage. My current flavour for winter is premier baits tropical fruit. It's very thin and has superb leakage.

    My week off starts tomorrow and if it gets to be half as good as yours sounds I'll be more than happy. Well in mate.

    Flavour of the Week - Bait

    Well my current bait choice is a custom rolled bait by premier baits. I've been using it now for well over 10 yrs , more like 15yrs but I have also rolled a bit of my own in that time. Mainly milk protein for winter fishing when I do it or a nut bait that my mate designed that was and is doing very very well. I've rolled these different baits not because I felt that the premier bait wasn't good enough but because I knew the other baits were being used to good effect on the waters I was fishing so if it ain't broke don't fix it. As for particle, I do use it but only when I feel I need to. This will mainly be after spawning and if I'm on a new water. The particle mix I use had once again been designed by a mate. When I first got told about it he told me to bait up with it in advance as the fish take a while to get on it. I thought he was full of nonsense so started baiting a snag tree on a new water so I could see the reaction. He wasn't wrong. First bucket load took 4 days to be eaten, could clearly see it hadn't been touched until the 4th day. This went on until after a couple of weeks they were smashing it up as soon as it went in. It's a simple mix pretty much with only 3 particles, ooops I meant 4 and the 4th one is the one that does the business. Works extremely well where nuts are banned, and yet you won't find a single nut in the mix. I've had bailiffs root through the bucket before now and they don't find a single nut either and yet over a quarter of the bucket is nut. A very clever mix but sadly can't say what it is or I'll have to k**l you πŸ˜‚

    Topping up at first light?

    Weekends on there are 10 times worse. I feel your pain. I'll have to try and get down and introduce myself when I'm free.

    Marine worms......

    Very interesting. I've been doing a lot of sea fishing over the last couple of months and the one thing I'm noticing is that if I use just ragworm my results are better if I cut the worm in half and it's juices run out, pretty obvious that but the bites are certainly faster in coming than with a whole ragworm. But the last couple of beach sessions has seen an even faster bite response when I've used cocktail baits. Rag' and squid, rag' and sand eel or worm and mackerel, so there are 2 protein/amino sources. Maybe the liquidised rag/lug will be the next new thing. After all we've had the krill, tuna, salmon, green lipped mussel, king crab ( well I've certainly used king crab liquidπŸ˜‰). So who knows what is next. Will be a winner if it is the rag'.

    Fishmeal or birdfood

    One of my mates switched to this in the spring of this year and he's not looked back, banking fish to 49lb. The bait he was on, in my opinion was miles better quality but he couldn't catch on it while others that were on it caught numerous fish but his confidence was gone with that bait so decided to change to hydro k. End of the day it's made by bowers who's knows his bait, it will be good. 9 times out of 10 though it's the angler that's no good and not the bait.

    Spodding

    Personally I would always use a shockleader. 45lb quicksilver is always my chosen shockleader.

    Best all round rods

    How come you've left the dark side and gone on to white? Treb' lites are my next rod, custom built, luvvly jubbly.

    Best all round rods

    How come you got rid of your harrison's? They are in my opinion the best all round rod. I've got their chimeras and they can smack a lead a big distance and yet be a good action under the rod tip. I wouldn't buy any other rod apart from harrison.
  14. Geoff is the brains behind god knows how many baits that are out there, all under different names, urban bait, perfection groundbait and so on. His lot roll most of it as well as his own abs ( activ bait solutions ). I don't know for sure but I think urban baits nutcracker is the same mix as perfection groundbaits chocolate orange albeit different flavours. Chances are any fishmeal baits he does for these companies will be based on his original " aminos" with or without Robin red etc with the odd tweak here and there. I dread to think how much fishmeal that man uses/ sells in a week, it will be in the 10's of tonnes if not more.
  15. His bait is made by Geoff bowers, maybe he wants to go the whole hog and do the lot himself. Must cost a fair few quid to get firstly the premises and then all the machinery etc to make the bait. Hobart mixers, the extruders, the heat sealer for the bags, the sign written bags, pots for this and that, ingredients etc etc etc. The list is endless.
