  1. What do you class as a short session if I’m doing a day trip I will just buy a meal deal from a shop πŸ‘ maybe a flask of tea or coffee too. Are you putting your bread in a cool bag with ice blocks or something? I usually put half a loaf for bacon sandwiches in my fishing rucksack and never had any problems, will keep for a good 48 hours πŸ‘πŸ‘ Easy foods for me are pot noodles, super noodle now do pot noodles you just add water lol. Tea and biscuits, big soup, all day breakfast in a tin, it tastes rubbish but it will do for fishing πŸ˜‚ I can’t be bothered with the cleaning up anymore so just try to cook everything with a kettle or the 1 saucepan or frying pan πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    August Catch Reports

    Not a carp, but an awesome looking fish πŸ˜† Tom pot blenny I believe. Caught it dropshotting off a rock mark πŸ‘ also had some nice wrasse too.
  5. I’ll be wearing the spf 50 today πŸ˜† was driving yesterday and burnt my arm from just having it on the edge of the window. Now have to go into work with a white arm and a red arm πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    July Catch Reports

    had 3 carp, only a couple lbs each, lost one as well. Dad had a carp as well. We also had probably 50 or so roach, Rudd, gudgeon, perch and skimmers between us. Not to sound like a miserable prick but the pond has gone down hill. It used to be a nice coarse lake, where people would set up with light gear, single rod like a quiver or float rod or pole and bag up on silvers etc, but went there today and it was full of bivvies, all the gear no idea springs to mind, bite alarms ripping off full volume constantly all morning, up to 3 rods out each bagging up on 3 - 4lb carp. I just don’t see the fun in it it seems well overkill and also the state of the carp have got worse since I went there about 10 year ago. Mouths all battered and deformed, we put some carp clinic on the ones we caught but I doubt it will help them lol. We packed up at 10.30 and won’t be going back again lol.
  7. Pint of maggots, ground bait, corn and a new spoon net. Me and the old man are having a match for a few hours tomorrow morning, see who can catch the biggest and also the most πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚ Might get some lobs later and try for a decent perch too πŸ‘
  8. Hmm strawberry goo doing the doo or something like that I’ve heard on a few fishing videos recently lol. I swear people watch these videos and then start saying it themselves lol. β€œThis place is mega” wtf does that even mean πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈπŸ˜‚ I still struggle to take people seriously when they call the carp everything but a carp. Donkey, cod, dolphin etc πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈπŸ˜‚ not carp fishing but some lad I was speaking to said he was wreck fishing and caught a conger eel, referred to it as a big old angry Alsatian on the end of his line πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚
  9. I get what you are saying mate I don’t fish snags anyway, a lot of the waters I fish you ain’t allowed to use them, I guess like you say people using them to put baits where they shouldn’t be. I want one for a little pond I fish, the island has overgrown and you can’t get a lead to it without hitting the trees that are over hanging (not into the water) and if you start doing several casts to get it right you will spook the fish out of the swim and they won’t return for ages lol. a 11m baiting pole might do it from a couple swims but might as well spend the extra and get a boat, I think I will enjoy using it too πŸ˜† but yeah it’s not for all my fishing, just for the tricky pond I sometimes fish πŸ‘
  10. Whatever floats your boat mate. I won’t lose any sleep over using one or the merit of capture. I enjoy catching carp and will use anything I can to help me catch more πŸ˜€
  11. Been doing 12 hour shifts from 4.30am each day this week, feeling it pretty bad since I’ve been out of work since January πŸ˜­πŸ˜‚ will have enough wedge to buy a nice bait boat and some bait when I get paid πŸ˜† πŸ˜‚
  12. I’ll admit mine is spoilt rotten and has the run of the house, I’m glad I’m not alone πŸ‘πŸ˜‚. I’m for ever buying new treats and toys πŸ˜‚ Fair play mate I wish you the best of luck they look so cute πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚, I doubt I will get a puppy again they are too much for me πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ mine was the spawn of Satan when it was a puppy, it would give you a nip, you say ouch and it would get even more excited and nip even more/harder πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ thankfully it’s mellowed out now but the first 6 months were pure chaos πŸ˜‚ it had all the toys, I spent ages playing with her but she would still wreck stuff, steal shoes or socks when you weren’t looking and chew holes in them πŸ˜‚ has yours started the puppy nipping/ biting yet? πŸ˜†
  13. Not sure what they are selling these days, but check out cyprinus, they do some awesome stuff at really good prices. I got a cyprinus fast and light system from them which is actually the Aqua fast and light, even turned up in the Aqua box lol. Amazing system, it’s all I use these days. If you can get your hands on one I would highly recommend it πŸ‘
  14. Good luck with 2 puppies at once mate one is a handful πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I remember someone speaking about litter mate syndrome, apparently it’s quite common when you get two from the same litter lol might be worth reading in to πŸ‘ I can still remember the first night, I was told to let the puppy cry it out, by midnight I couldn’t take it anymore and went to see to her only to find her to have crapped in the crate and get covered in it. I had to give her a bath in the middle of the night πŸ˜‚ since then she just stays on the end of the bed πŸ˜‚
  15. Do you prefer to fish a matching pop up to the free fed boilies or do you go for something different?
  16. Kind of wish I did now πŸ˜‚ the hangover ain’t too bad but deffo should of went fishing instead πŸ˜‚
  17. Had a walk around my local pond, seen these beauties and no one fishing. Might grab the rods and listen to the football on the radio instead of pub πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚
  18. I think you get two types of anglers on the water. Ones that do laps of the lake, constantly watching the water, willing to move onto fish in the middle of the night because they’ve heard them crashing on the other side of the lake. Then you get the ones who want to bivvy up, put a bed of bait out and wait for the fish to move onto the bait then sit in the bivvy for the day, playing on the phones/reading books etc. I find the ones who are watching the water all day, putting in the hard work usually do a lot better πŸ‘
  19. So this morning I set my Fox Royale Classic bivvy up to take some pictures of it to list on gumtree. Upon packing away I instantly remembered why I never use it πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ its bordering on impossible to fold up πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈNot sure if it’s because it’s a pram hood design but it’s a pain in the ass πŸ˜‚ managed to get packed away, good luck to the new ownerπŸ˜‚ anyone else used one before or have this trouble??
  20. Cracking fish mate I know right, some of the places they fish is amazing. sane, I think it will be interesting to see what happens in the future πŸ‘
  21. Their enthusiasm always puts me in the mood to go fishing πŸ‘πŸ˜‚ the guy jumping up and down when he netted the carp for Ali was spot on πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  22. Its very annoying mate πŸ˜‚ when I had the take I was using the less is more approach, I was fishing the bottom bait with 4 boilies around it. I’m gonna try singles next time πŸ‘
  23. It’s making me question everything mate. Same bait and the day before when I had a take, sticky krill. I know it works. I had the fish in front of me last night I seen several carp, just don’t understand why they didn’t get their heads down. my baits are going on some hard spots, about a foot off the island. I’m wondering if it’s because I’m not getting it close enough.. bait boat would help πŸ‘πŸ˜‚ Then in questioning the rigs I’m using, I’ve recently made a change. I’ve been trying out a slip D rig with a bait screw. It was nailing the bream every time on res. If it’s hooking them well enough, shouldn’t be a problem hooking the carp? Might have to go back to the basic knotless knot rig for bottom baits and try that again lol
  24. Fished until 11 last night...blank 😭 thinking about buying one of them bait boats with sonar on it πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ COVID jab has made me feel well rough today, headache, whole body is stiff/aching, feels like a got a bad cold πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈπŸ˜‚
  25. I was watching the Korda lads the other day and they were crimping the swivel to have a running lead clip setup with the spinner rig, watching your video has now made me wonder if they’ve had any swivels break on them because of crimping πŸ€”πŸ€”
