  1. This is the kind of rig I mean, helicopter with long boom section I believe it does have a pop up on
  2. Hey everyone, long time no post! I’m going to France in September to fish a lake called Val D’or. I’ve heard it’s clay with patches of silt and gravel but also that there’s weedy areas so a bit of a mixed bag. For the last few years I’ve had quite a lot of success using inline leads catching me my PB 34lb in a gravel pit. Ive recently started experimenting with new setups using helicopter rigs and have had a bit of success. Fishing a new water I’m looking for some advise on your experiences using helicopter rigs, I was conisderIng Korda Kable chod leader with heli set up, tied boom section and a stiff hinged rig with a bottom bait/pop up snowman set up. Are there any situations where this wouldn’t work or have you got any other suggestions? Thanks Jason
  3. Hey guys, Me and my mates are looking to go to France next year, it’s our 4th annual trip and we’ve always gone to the same lake but we want to try somewhere new this year. I’m looking for suggestions based on - Friendly staff - Potential for large carp and maybe sturgeon/cats - Don’t want a really hard water though where we’re going to blank or catch 1-2 fish in a week Any help would be really appreciated Thanks Jason
  4. Haha thanks mate! I thought I'd create a new account for fishing only people on there that appreciate what it's like catching a big carp!
  5. Alright guys Im just starting an instagram blog where I can post some of my best catches and wanted to mention it on here incase anyone wanted to follow it to see some of my catches its @JaseCarpFishing, happy to follow back
  6. Hi guys, long time since I've posted on here, I've been doing a lot of work on improving my fishing and have been to France a few times. im going again in September, it's a big gravel pit with some reallly deep areas (25ft) and I plan to bring my Spod/marker to find some decent spots to fish. When watching carp fishing on TV (monster carp) I notice that they will use the Spod to put out a lot of bait then fish all 3 rods on that spot. Do you guys think that's the best tactic? Or would you suggest two on the largely baited area and then one cast to a feature in the lake with a few freebies? What do you guys tend to do on a large venue (it has up to 70lb carp in there so I want to get this right) just for those that are interested I've decided to bring some of my own tied rigs - 25lb braided hooklinks with size 4 barbed Kurv shank hooks tied in to blowback rigs should be perfect fingers crossed, I'll also be using a heavy inline lead setup on fox camo soft steel mainline (absolutely brilliant line) even better than GT80 Cheers Jason
  7. Worked perfectly thanks lads! Managed to roll 3.5kg of my own bait testing it next weekend!
  8. Thanks for your reply! I just got a new nozzle cut it to 14ml which rolled perfect dumbells (I changed the recipe as advised and they stuck much better) I then slowly made the nossle bigger with a Stanley knife until it rolled almost perfect boilies I haven't tried gunning out all the mix yet though so that's the next plan thanks
  9. Hey again, I rolled my first kilo of boilies this week using my own base mix, working hard on the recipe with the help from another one of my posts here my next job is to figure out an easier way to roll the baits - I have one of the large boilie rolling tables that does 30 boilies at once, but it needs to be screwed down. Even with the rubber stoppers it's still a nightmare to use - does anyone have any tips for how I could build a little frame without spending a fortune? I've seen a few pics where people have them screwed down at and angle and the boilies are dropping in to a little drawer etc but my wood work skills aren't great! Any ways you guys have got around this would be greatly appreciated before I spend a whole day or two trying to build a box for it to screw down to! Thanks
  10. Good shout I'll make sure I spend more time kneeding the mix it didn't break much when making the sausages it was more when trying to roll it I used a 16ml nossle though so it was all squashed when trying to roll, then found it difficult to get it all to stick, I did in the end when I added some more mix and another egg. all trial and error I guess!
  11. Perfect thanks, how much brewers yeast would you say? The peanuts were liquified in my mini blender so like powder. Ive taken the Nijer seed off and reduced oils to 10ml hopefully that will help. Should I increase semolina or is that not necessary? Thanks
  12. So I made my first kilo, learned a few things: Next time I deffo need to screw my boilie table down as that was a nightmare Secondly I need to order a new nozzle for my boilie gun as 16ml is too big for 16ml boilie table from googling it ahoild be 1-2ml smaller sausage than then boilie you want to roll finally my boilie recipe needs so amending, I had to roll the whole kilo by hand as it kept breaking apart - does this mean I neee more semolina/soya flour in the mix? Here's the recipe, next time I'm adding brewers yeast and swapping milk powder for lamlac: 200g semolina 200g soya flour 100g megablend red (egg biscuit) 200g tiger nut meal 100g CLO 100g milk powder 50g crushed hemp seed 20ml hemp oil 20ml Corn Steep Liquor Peanuts ground 30g Nijer seed 50g Strawberry essence Red powdered dye (preference) 6 Eggs
  13. Thanks for your replies guys, I'm looking at lamlac but can only find 5kg minimum lol if I find anywhere that only does 1kg I'll go get some looks good though as I'm not putting much in it should last ages like you said
  14. Hey everyone, Bit of a random one, what are your thoughts on using baby formula as a replacement to milk protein in a boilie recipe to 50g/kg? im going to use normal milk powder anyway rather than any of the fancy stuff, and thought e.g. Hill organic baby milk at £8 for 800g would have increased protein/vitamins and iron in right? HiPP are the world's experts in organic baby food and nutrition with over 50 years experience Organic sourceContains Praebiotik® (Galacto-oligosaccharides/GOS)Oligosaccharides obtained from lactoseOmega 3 & 6 LCPs (DHA & AA)Contains added Omega 3 (DHA) and Omega 6 (AA) LCPs Am I crazy or would that be better than normal milk powder?
  15. Thanks for all your advise I'll post a pic of the end result
