  1. 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!
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Hi mate, I have done Bovi 2, olivers and Lodge farm and layer over previous years. what info are you after?
  6. 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!
  7. 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!
  8. 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?
  9. 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.
  10. have a search mate, I asked this a few months ago. What helped me was fishing deepers water and 7 to 8 " hook lenghs....I was fishing 3/4" solid bags before and it wasnt getting them!
  11. Why has no one mentioned Reel big fish? they done the work for you!
  12. Two weeks left on the ticket and I finally caught a grass carp. 15.6lb on one other in there and that's 27lb. Backed up with a couple 20's from the margin
  13. Well this looks set to be my last "session" before the baby drops, I will get some more work overnighters in but i have Thursday to Saturday to finally get my 2 target fish. Anyway, On this venue i tend to move between 2 or 3 swims on the same side of the bank but at opposite ends, each area doing me well but i have noticed over the last month or so alot of repeat captures. Now at 1 end of the lake theres a big island, from the side i usually fish its about 18 wraps and from the other is about 8 wraps, The short side i havent really liked fishing as it gives no view of the rest of the lake and if the fish are not in front of you your in trouble, its also the deepest part of the lake by a ft or 2. Now i have noticed when the sun gets up the fish tend to get round there and cruise around the top, So over the last week work overnighters i have fished round there. This has led me to catching fish i havent caught before and also consistantly catching (even though not as often as with the otherside). so anyway over the few days that i will be there i plan to set up shop behind the island, Close the the island its inches deep dropping down to 7ft then to 11ft. I had some joy at 11ft this past overnighter....So im thinking that during the night i will fish down on the bottom of the shelf in 11ft of water and during the day i will either zig over the same spot of fish tighter to the island in shallow water depending on what i see. However im thinking if i go shallow i will move the next swim down so to "rest the spot a little".......Do people ever fish past the baited spot into shallower water? Do they have a problem with doing that? I feel that because there is such a difference in depth that my lines will be no where near the bait.....but the lines will still be there so maybe i should just cast left and right of the baited spot of move the rods down a peg..... Any thoughts on this? It must be common to fish shallower during the day over and past baited areas and drop back down into deeper water in the evening?
  14. Mental work overnighter last night!
  15. Hi All, I think its time for me to get some new alarms and move the solaces into the 9ft foot couple of hour kit. Those alarms have done 5 fishing fishing at least 1 night a week through wind, rain and snow and they havent let me down but i did notice this week that on 1 of the alarms the bobbins could move a fair bit before notification. so whats every one using? What do people recommend? Im sure i read there was one where the reciever light up the bivvy if there was a run? Want to avoid Delkims if possible...just because everyone has them!
