    March catches

    Lol thanks mate. Felt great to be fishing, the leg didn't feel great, moving the barrow over slippery ground wasn't great but I can deal with a bit of pain if it means I can feel normal again! Just on the hunt to find a ticket for the year now!

    March catches

    One of 3 from my first work overnighter since injury. 22.5 this one went. I had the whole site to myself which was lovely, solid bags as usual.... Also had a small roach on a size 6 Ronnie rig.....
  3. Fishing is what you make of it mate, I have a busy work and family life so when i can fish its all work overnighters so i work hard to catch, if i had 24 hours or more i might fish slightly differently. i have found through fishing winters that regular casting helps, Especially with a solid bags as you can cast around to try and locate the fish. if im set on a spot i will be pelting boilies over the top of the solid bag or even spodding. Once you get into the habit with bags you will be tying them up in seconds.....have a little look on Ebay for bags...you can get them very cheap!
  4. Im pretty aggressive with my fishing so if i dont get anything in 2 hours i would do a rechuck on all rods. if your on the fish and you get 2 or 3 quick bites your suddenly trying to tie more up whilst trying to keep the rods hence why i do so man. i also find if i get a bleep or 2 and it doesnt result in anything i will redo the rod as 9 times out of 10 i have been done...Can usually tell as my lead is up past the leadcore. Good luck buddy!
  5. Ultimate PVA bag for me, 2mm pellet maybe a bit of boilie crumb if im feeling generous and the hook bait. Went through the stage of putting loads of stuff in there, making a mix with oils and liquids but at the end of the day, stuff goes off so i dont use liquids, I dont want to be fart assing around at 3 in the morning making bags and adding various bits and pieces. I catch plenty, its all about speed and getting the rods back out as quickly as possible. 10 tied and ready to go bags, If i dont use them, they can be used next time without fear of them going mouldy or anything.
  6. Hey guys, I need a landing net and staff to go in my 9ft dwarf rod bag. Any recommendations?
  7. I just tie up 10 a night or 2 before the session and keep them topped up as i cant be fiddling around all night after bites doing bags. Great way to fish really fast. i also spod over the bags!
  8. Done alright mate. Had 8 in the endnothing big but had to work for it. My old man only managed 1 but at least he caught in the end. Leg held out pretty well which was more important...now i can start getting back into it again!
  9. Im finished on Bovi 2 now, i dont Lakelands across the road on a separate ticket last year. and with my second born i tend just to do the odd few hours over Layer at the moment. Lovely lake Bovi and worth figuring out mate, lots of features out there so get the marker out and have a proper lead around. pay more attention to learning the features in your first few sessions, it will pay off long term. Feel free to ask any questions you have or what you find if you want to validate info Good luck mate. Post your pics on here.
  10. So Slate is still in there at 42 now i believe, I had it a few years back at 37. Nutty and Apple scale are both over 30 as well i believe. In summer it gets really weedy but there are parts of the lake that remain clear...the lake is pretty angler free when its weedy! Its a good time to fish it. I dont know about weekends as i only done work overnighters. Shed load of tench in there up to double figures. I found Solid bags being the best method over 50 to 100 boilies. Theres a decent stock in there. They put some stockies in a few years ago. Fish dont show much over there, casting over a show done me well.
  11. Hi mate, I have done Bovi 2, olivers and Lodge farm and layer over previous years. what info are you after?
  12. I have never really paid to much attention to oils and glug's outside of the goo really but over the last year i have started to play around a bit more, from urban i tend to add a decent amount of the nutcracker liquid and leave it to soak for a day or 2 then on the day i add some of the red spicy flavouring. On the 2 waters i fished last year i caught really well and consistently, Would i have caught as many with them? Who knows but if i am catching with them iam not going to stop using them....Also the liquid tastes nice and the red spicy flavoring is just mashed up chilli's, Its hot and great on chips!
  13. Still alive mate, Just couldn't do watching or talking about fishing whilst i knew i couldn't go! I have booked Jacobs Creek, havent fished it before but walked around it a few years back, 2 nights with the old man next week so hopefully we both manage to grab 1 or 2. Looks set to rain most of the weekend so glad we have a little cabin to hide in!
  14. Hey guys, I have been pretty quiet for a while as i ruptured my ACL, Broke some bone and tore my menicus whilst playing football about 6/7 months ago which has kept me off my feet and more importantly off the bank. Its a long road to recovery but i think im capable of doing a few nights on the bank. I think doing it in a bivvy might be a bit much so i am looking for somewhere i don't have to bend to get in and out of so does anyone know of any lakes with a cabin on them? The cabins can be completely empty, they just need to be on the lake and big enough to get my bedchair in! Suffolk or Essex. Suggestions?
  15. not read all the messages but im not sold on the whole washed out bait thing, How does a fish know a bait has been in the water longer? Most baits washed out or not are slightly different shades of colour. I also think it would be niave of us on most venues to think we were fishing where there is no other bait around. If a fish is leaving fresh bait and eating the washed out bait....is it because the fish thinks its been in the water longer so safe? or that the food signals are maybe less and now more attractive to that particular fish? or is it the flavour you have added when washing out a bait that has made it more favourable.....We will probably never know. Every angler will have a different opinion, The question is, are you confident in what you are doing? If you washing out your bait and its catching fish...continue, If your not catching, Give it a try and if it doesnt work youve lost nothing. Fishing well if all about confidence.
