  1. Hi everyone has anyone got any tips for keeping the gas bottle warmer during these cold winter nights?. I've got a cover for it but its usually got so cold overnight that the gas trickles out in the morning which is a pain when you're gagging for that first brew in the morning. Thanks.
  2. New Boilie

    Hi everyone just a quick question, do some boilies not work on some waters?. The reason I ask is that me and my mate have bought some new nut based boilies from a local supplier, now I know big carp have been caught on them at other local lakes and they are a quality bait but don't know if anyone on our syndicate waters use them. We used them on a 48hr session on our hard, low stock water a couple of weeks ago and didn't even get a run, to be fair I don't think much was caught by anyone else either. My mate has gone to our runs water today just for the day, one rod on the krill and one rod on the new bait, he's had so far 4 carp all to the krill but nothing on the new bait this is why I was just wondering if maybe the new bait doesn't suite our waters or if that's possible. Thanks.
  3. Freebies

    Hi guys just a quick question, what are your thoughts about using different freebie boilies to your main hook bait ones? I've heard several different views from people I fish with, some saying they will only use the same and others who say its all food and will get the carp munching in your hook bait area so will use different ones with no problems. Just wondered what you all think? Thanks.
  4. Frozen Boilies

    Hi everyone, I've always used shelf life boilies but want to give frozen a go. There's a company near me which do their own baits, you get them fresh in 5kg bags and you have to freeze them yourself so was going to break them down into say 5 x 1kg bags. Anyway to my questions, how long before fishing do you have to take them out of the freezer and how do you 'look after them' during a trip and can you refreeze any unused boilies? Also I've heard of 'air-drying' freezer baits but don't know what that is so if anyone can explain then that would be great. Thanks.
  5. View from your bivvy door.

    Yes mate. I use fox black label bobbins, they are there but you cant see them very well in the photo.

  7. Hi guys, what is the best way to prepare pigeon conditioner please? Some people tell me to soak for 24hrs then boil but others say they use the cool box trick for 24hrs. Also i've been told to add molasses, how much would you put say for every kg of conditioner and at what point? Thanks.
  8. JRC CX Alarms reviews

    Yes they come with covers and haven't used them in the rain yet to be honest
  9. JRC CX Alarms reviews

    Yeah ive got a set and absolutely love them. A mate of mine who is far more experienced than me was so impressed after seeing mine that he sold his wychwood ones and bought himself a set.
  10. Hi everyone just wondered if anyone has ever fished here or know what its like? Thanks.
  11. Hi everyone, just wondered what everyone's opinions were of buzz bars or pods and which do you use?. I usually use a pod but most people I know use buzz bars and poo poo pods. Just wondered if there are reasons where one may be better than the other or is it just a personal thing? Thanks.
  12. Hi guys I'm thinking of getting some snag ears but don't know which to get for my set up. I use a Nash H-Gun 3 Rod Pod, JRC Radar CX Alarms and Fox Black Label Slik Bobbins. Don't want to pay huge amounts of money but have heard the NGT ones are no good so you get what you pay for I suppose. Thanks.
  13. Sorry guys yet another boilie question. Just been reading one of the angling weeklies and this company was advertising their boilies. They look good to me but wondered if anyone has tried them or know anything about them? 5kg of krill for £30 delivered!! Thanks.

  15. Maize

    Hi everyone, just got back from the Carpin on show and Terry Hearn did a very interesting talk and said that he likes using maize. Firstly I haven't a clue how to prepare maize but he also said it is very good at taking in a flavour so would you add a flavour to maize before cooking or after? He said that his fav flavour could be bought from a supermarket and was sweet and salty but wouldn't say what it was, me and my mate spend the journey home trying to work it out but couldn't so hope you guys have some ideas. Thanks.
