  1. Bought a 5kg bag of tangerine dream for 30 quid was pre baiting with it and had a good result, they were a bit hard for my liking though took me 24 hours too wash them out so they were soft during a session but the water they were in looked good plenty of leakage I'd buy them again for pre baiting .

    Mallet

    Mallet

    If your fishing alone it's your choice if you want too use a mallet but if their are other anglers around it's bad etiquette and makes you look like a pleb too any one with good Bankside etiquette. I personally just wanna go home if someone turns up and starts using a mallet get loads of morons at linear that do it, they automatically get labelled as bell ends and Il move away from them asap if I can.
  4. I was fishing on St johns at linear a while back and decided too get my head down for an early night I was led on my bed dozing off when I had a single bleep on bite alarm I flew up off my bed but both my legs had gone totally dead for some reason and I just fell out of the Bivvy and almost rolled into the lake lol I must say I even started laughing, quite embarrassing though as their were a few other anglers on the opposite side and I heard one of them say "what a show up" haha I had too crawl back into my bivvy??
  5. Try a peice of a crushed boilie just hooked on and fished on a waggler rig over depth (if the bottom suits),and feed crushed boilie,it singles out the bigger roach youl probably have too wait a while for the bite but it will be a big roach when the float disappears,had a big one using this tactic at my local park lake last week I used manilla boilie soaked in Nash the key liquid food,give it a try.
  6. Im not spilling finding your own spot is all part of the challenge
  7. Chillfactor you can tell people the spots you advise i doubt their gonna put a bait in the exact spot i was fishing although it was quite an obvious spot and a few lads fish it anyway. I had one from stanchards as well on a choddy too the back of the boats. But all others from a different spot on the tidal stretch.
  8. Alright chillfactor ye i bagged some in the end my pb as well 26.5 a big common. A couple of lads from cirencester bagged some biggies too up too 29 lb.
  9. Ive had some good carp from lower severn last october had 13 bites in 2 day sessions in a row landed 11 carp too 26.5 pound, epic fight from the biggie i felt like Jeremy wade most of the bites came on high tide as the water was right up no prebaiting all caught on bottom baits with no freebies i think i just hit the jackpot with the spot i was fishing, i don't want too say exactly where it was but i will say it was fishing close too marginal snags. Don't fish without a leader on lower severn.
  10. Any tips for drifting weed, maybe a backlead ?? Because it really is annoying and the tension the weed puts on the line must move the rig ?? Has anyone had a take and landed a fish when their mainline is covered in weed and it all gets clogged in the rod tip because that cant be good.
  11. I say gravel pits specifically because the bottom is rarely uniform and i was just thinking if i fish a tight line theirs a chance of damage from gravel bars and the line wont be travelling in a straight line if u no what i mean. And i have tried putting the rods up high but the lines still pick up weed further out. Sorry if the question is a bit vauge.
  12. When fishing on a gravel pit how tight would you have your lines for say a chod rig, pva bag, zig and a more standard bottom bait rig also does anyone have any tips on what too do when your lines are getting covered in drifting weed. Cheers
  13. I try and get a few 48 hour trips too linear each year and have been checked a few times their, ive also been checked on the river severn ive got no problem buying a license 27 quid for a year is a bargain and if you havent got one ul be looking over your sholder all day wich is no good, the people who dont buy them are the morons who arent real anglers just scum who want everything for free.
  14. Its good because you can whip up a mix in minuites and just hand roll a small amount for hookbaits, i made about sixteen baits, also their not like pop ups you buy from the shop that are just rock hard baits, when they defrost they are basically a fresh freezer bait but a pop up and i reckon they could be a massive edge as you can put any fresh food ingredients in that you want.

  16. I decided too make some pop up hookbaits with cork balls, i made some paste using 1 egg, and for the base mix basically used some groundbait and soya flour wich helped them roll nicely. I also added a couple of other ingredients wich were all from the supermarket for the flavour and smell,adding too the smell from the groundbait in the mix. I boiled these for 1 minuite each and put them on the rack from my grill too dry out slightly, i then transferred them too a pop up tub and froze them so all the ingerdients i used would stay fresh, the end result was 3 takes out of 5 on my bait and the biggest fish i caught that day was on my homemade baits, ill definetly be making more so i can test them on other waters, i was well chuffed (excuse the boring explenation)
  17. Hi i uploaded a photo of a carp i caught and it hasent appeared on the gallery in the forum, unfortunately ive lost the file of the photo and as it was my biggest fish from my local venue i really want too try and get hold of it again somehow, was just wondering if a moderator or someone on here could see if the file is in the hands of the forum and let me no so i may be able too retreive it ? cheers in advance
  18. Excuse me mate is their any chance u could bombard our area of the lake with your spod and spomb for another hour i love seeing it cruise through the air and smashing the water too smitherines its such a stealthy approach. cheers
  19. Thousands of roach,perch and pike died on my local lake apparently because of a massive thunderstorm that we had wich caused major low pressure and apparently starved the water of alot of oxygen and stirred up alot of silt?, only a coupel of small carp died out of a good couple of hundred wich was good but they seem too be acting very strangely since then (a couple of weeks ago) and seem alot harder too catch, i doubt the heatwave has helped though roll on the autumn, way better for fishing imo
  20. That is sad news RIP, carp crew is one of the few decent fishing programmes ive watched, he seemed like hed be quality too go fishing with.
  21. I always take a few photos and get some footage of my trips on my mobile phone wich r great too look back on wether they have fish in or not (hardly any of them do) also learning small amounts of watercraft every now and then is brilliant especially if you fish the same lake regularly as i think the behaviour of every lake is different.

  24. Cheers mate ill give that a go i know their are a few pastes at my local tackle shop that you cant get in boilie flavours if you no what i mean so i should be able too make something a bit different, what about mixing two different pastes or even three ?? For a unique bait
