  1. You seem to be catching consistently now , Nick , all your groundwork paying off no doubt . 😃
  2. Those are long commons , Smufter .
  3. Or is it your lucky beard , Smufter ? . 😁
  4. Did you use a boat to get to your swim , Commonly ? . Have you screen captured Nicks' advice based on his Res. experience ? , maybe if you dipped into his posts when your confidence starts to wobble ? . It looks like you're fishing into the wind , and I would think that a lot of natural food , bugs etc is being swept your way ? . 😃
  5. Go get them , Commonly . 😃
  6. Well I headed to the shallows which had been the weediest part of the lake , ( before a lot of the weed was removed ) , after having a bit of a stroll around the rest of the lake - and I caught ! . So thank you very much Framey , and Yonny . Now which one of you gentlemen would like to push my barrow round to my swim for me ? . 😁
  7. Hello everyone . I know Yonny is going to say " fish where the fish are " , but what if I am weak and feeble , and don't want to spend 3 hours like Ginger walking the lake looking for signs of fish ? . I'm thinking of concentrating on the deeper water as I'm thinking it will be more oxygenated ( I've noticed that the last 2 fish I've caught and released in the shallow water near the bank are taking longer to recover than usual . Also at night what is the weed doing ? , i.e. giving or taking oxygen ? . Ta . 😃
  8. If you look at your Bream , Cromiee , and then Highys' Bream what a difference in colours ; any Bream I catch tend to be more a slate grey . grey . The heads of both yours and Highys' Bream look similar , and the bigger the Bream the more " slab" like they are i.e. much flatter than the more rounded body of a Carp . 😃
  9. Will you be posting your results on the banana pls. , Elmo ? . I tried Solar Top Banana Boilies and Pop Ups , and I don't think I caught anything , but then again it wasn't an exhaustive test .
  10. Interesting colouring on that Common , Highy . Looks like you were worrying that Dig was going to have a chew on the camera ? 😁
  11. I've had a 13lb Carp in my Fast Mat , and I thought " when I catch a lump 🙄 , will the mat be big enough " 🤔 . I think I should have kept my Chub Carp Cradle , and just use the Fast Mat for stalking .
  12. Good grief , Commonly , are you Highy in disguise ? 😁
  13. Well that's a bummer , Commonly , having to buy your own outboard ? ; will there at least be a storage facility at the reservoir so you don't have to keep transporting the outboard backwards and forwards ? . 😃
  14. I guess you've been using muscles that you've not been used to using before , Smufter . Do you think you'll be going back to work , Smufter , or are you going to try something else ? - Landscape Gardner ? 😁 . 😃
  15. Exactly as Commonly says , " Effort = Reward " . Do you know yet , Commonly if you will be able to use a boat to look for signs of Carp ? . 😃
  16. Well that didn't take you long to get off the mark , Nick , that must give you confidence for the season ahead of you ? . 😃
  17. Thanks very much for the heads up , Yonny , but I can't get out until Mon. night / Tues . day . Any chance of you " aving a word " , and delaying / extending the feed - up ? . 😁
  18. Are you going to get the Korum Fast Mat , Tree ? . 😃
  19. I don't think Gavlaa posts anymore , Dameo , but you could try sending him a PM , it might just pop up in Gavlaa's emails ? . 😃
  20. Well that sounds marvellous , no towing a boat on a trailer / putting a dingy on your car roof rack , and then having to store everything . Will you be able to do what Elmo has asked , i.e. use a boat to run your rigs out , bait up , and generally search for Carp ? Oh , what about getting a Jolly Roger 😁
  21. Nick is Father Christmas ? 😲 . Don't tell your Girls , Elmo . 😁
  22. " I need to get a life jacket and do my boat safety induction ASAP, as it would appear no one is using a barrow to get to swims.

I need to get a life jacket and do my boat safety induction ASAP, as it would appear no one is using a barrow to get to swims. " The boating does sound exciting , are the boats provided or do you have to bring your own complete with outboard motor ? ; I'm guessing Nick has to barrow all his gear around unless he has Sky pulling an ada
  23. Aah , Keeping It Simple ! . I can't remember if it was Yonny , or Emmcee that said something like " get a bait you are confident in , a rig you are confident in , and then all you have to think about is location . " find the fish and present a bait to them that they want on a rig that resets itself , and bingo ! . So if I know the theory how come I'm not catching ? . 😢
  24. So Elmo what do credit your wonderful session to , the pedicure and manicure that your girls gave you before you left home ? . Or is it because of your deep thinking and inquisitive mind ? . Congratulations ! . ✌️

    May catch reports?

    The Carp were obviously all getting ready to spawn ( secretly , quietly ) , nothing you were doing wrong , Dayvid . 😁
