  1. o sorry thought u said you was from the swadlincote area haha
  2. have you ever been to the ponds in donisthorpe, theres couple on the main road, then theres two behind the pond on the road (1s called jacks pool) which was run by a club but not anymore???
  3. LOL - is that me? Unfortunately I gave up (temporarily) on this. It's fair to say I used to have more time than I do now and my fishing has had to rely on the waters that are out there already. I did the rounds, but couldn't find a suitable water- they are out there- but I just started to get busy and wanted to spend more time fishing than water hunting. There is a 50 acre lake I drive past every so often that looks right- but its next to a busy road- and I just don't like fishing waters where you have that loud traffic drone from 05:00 till 23:00 every day. Will keep you posted if I ever stumble on the 'right water'. Worth noting that I have purchased 50 carp that are already growing on...just in case... yea it was for you forgot ya name haha I am from the swadlincote area which ponds/lakes do you fish at?
  4. well at the min ive peeled and split aload and now soaking them in water and changing the water every 12 hours as it does turn yellow/brown which must be the acid coming out of them then when they stop turn the water a different colour il boil them for 15 mins and see if the water changes again if not soak them in my choosen colour/flavour and see what happens?? whos knows could land my new PB on them???
  5. i think i am gonna just try the acorns and split them out of the shells and soak them and boil then soak/flavour and colour like said on here because humans can eat acorns when prepared properly and the way i see it is if its ok for a human to eat it then it shouldnt harm a carp when it eats it....
  6. haha cheers for the help, whats the best way the flavour and put some colour in these same as flavouring other seeds and nuts maybe??
  7. ive just had a walk around my local lake and theres a couple of acorn trees and conker trees on the bank side over hanging the lake and i thought to my self peel the skin of both of these and they look like a boilie (conker) and and the acorns could be good to throw in a partical mix maybe? thinking how could we flavour and put some colour in them or would we cook them both like a maise or tiger nuts?? what do you think??? free natural baits???

  9. I went back down tonight and seen a few chaps carp fishing and they had only been a few times this year but got some info from them, theres a margin where one of the boats used to come in and out off which left the area clean of weed weather its still like that now I dont know and they aim for that, one had a 8lb tench when I was there looked perfect it did, Ive also seen clear spots 35/40ft from the bank which I think is people wading out and clearing the weed as its only 3/4 foot deep in most areas of the pond, thinking about doing this my self with a rake. The lake has got a 2 swans on and about 10 coots if not more which is anoying as they do go round diving for the baits so it would be hard to tell weather it was the carp taking the bait or the bloody birds....
  10. theres a few deep spots ive been told but i dont think i could cast out far enough to find them but the lake ranges from 2 foot to 4 foot deep in the margens and upto 30 foot from the banks but the deeper spots are 8/9 foot.
  11. ive spoked to the baylif or owns a gun shop where i can get a day ticket and he says theres a good stock of fish in it and its not easy at the min because of the weed but there been some big fish pulled out recently, he says its busy at the week end so il go down and see if i can speak to a few anglers... and get some better pics of the lake...
  12. Hi people at the min ive just found a really nice lake and there is some big carp in and big bream and big tench but its full of weed al over the pond. pics below....... but there is a few open spots along the margins like below. the water is really clear all across the pond as you can see and its quite a sandy bottom not gravel or silt type. is it possible to drop a heavey weight with my bait in a pva bag with freebies to get through the weed or do i fish the margins and drop my baits on the door steps of the tunnels the fish go in and out of?? what sort of rig would you use to get through the weed?
  13. I know this thread is a year old but as i live in the area just wanted to know if anythink is happening??
