  1. As some of you may know i fish some big lakes in Japan. Until now i`ve been casting from the bank but my fishing friend recently bought an inflatable dingy, electric motor and sonar/GPS unit to step things up a bit. We kitted ourselves out with some safety gear like life jackets (my friend went for a pull cord gas cylinder type that isn`t restrictive, i went for a restrictive foam type as i figured this would be safer if i went in unconscious), whistles and flashing head lights and we`ve been on 2 sessions with the boat. I thought i would share my initial experiences as it wasn`t all plain
  2. Here is part 7. I`m part way through editing Part 8 so that won`t be long now either.....
  3. Mouths were all good. A couple had torn dorsal fins but i don`t think they see the bank very often, if ever. Part 6 is up now. This has lots of fish including the fish from thumb nail picture at 20kg. It is a bit longer than the others as well as i got a lot of the carnage on the video glasses / camera. There are a couple of screaming takes in there as well. http://youtu.be/gNs-zs4Q26A
  4. Part 5 is up now with a couple of big fish in it......
  5. We used a long spoon in Chris` peg as there was nothing in his mix to bind it but chucking in mini-football sized balls was much faster for me. I think i`m going to Yogo next weekend, not sure if it will be the Friday night after work or on Saturday morning yet. Guess i`ll see you there.
  6. Part 4 is up now, there are some fish in this one! It will take me longer to get the next parts up as I was editting the first parts whilst i was fishing and the next parts are still raw footage.
  7. Carpy James, i used peanuts for the last 2 years but didn`t use them this year as they are another thing to prepare, are quite expensive to buy and don`t bind the mix like pellets can. Later in this session I was letting the pellets break down so that i could just ball up the mix. Whilst there are some sea bass, these lakes don`t have a bass bass / blue gill problem like other lakes do (yet!). And i`m not worried about getting cleaned out by those fish; the hera-buna are more of a problem to be honest but must be helping to keep the peg clean. I thought that bass were an invasive spe
  8. Thanks for the feedback. I`ve just uploaded part 3, this has a whole section on the pre-baiting.
  9. When I matched fished I would often target carp on the pole using boilies; it was very effective on venues like canals where you needed to drop in right next to trees or rushes. There are some very strong cheap poles available now and you can use very strong gear which is more than a match for double figure carp. That said, if there is open water, you will struggle with very big carp as they will bottom out your elastic and then something will let go; usually this will be the hook or line but I once pulled the bung that the elastic is attached to through the pole section! If they are close e
  10. .......not sure what happened to the end of that post. I'm going to guess that Apple's incompatibility with anything none Apple has thwarted me again (I'm finding I-movie painful if you can't guess). I'd welcome any constructive feedback on the films before I get too far into editting the remaining footage. I can't do much about the wind noise, car noise or footage itself but I can edit it differently .
  11. OK, here are the first 2 parts: I`d appreciate any feedback on these as, whilst there is
  12. I`ve just got back from a 10 day session which was the end of around 1 month`s activity on the Mikata 5 Lakes area in Japan. It was a fantastic campaign with a new weight PB (20kg), 2 x 40s and 10 x 30s caught. As the fishing deteriorated for the last few days I moved around the big lake and then finally to Lake Yogo for 1 night and managed 5 bites from there for another 3 x 30s! I`ve moved from a written style of blog to a The-Carp-Catcher/Jim Shelley/Kevin Ellis video format and I`m uploading the first 2 parts to You Tube now. These 2 parts are me basically fishing around the Mikata
  13. My wife bought me a Sony Cybershot digital camera for my birthday (can't remember the model number and it is the car but I think it is DSC-WX170). It is a fairly standard point and press camera and doesn't have a flip out screen that you can see when holding the fish. It does have good features, namely 'smile shutter' and wifi connectivity. Firstly the wifi......this is good as you can connect the camera to your smart phone or tablet and very quickly copy photos from your camera to your device. Also your device can become a camera remote where the result apprears on your phone so you c
