  1. Re-freezing doesn’t give them any life but it keeps them going. Perfectly fine as long as you understand that every day thawed is a day off it’s life. Ask any bait maker and they will tell you this.
  2. Normally overnight delivery. Boilies are fine to be re-frozen.
  3. people will be swimming out to retrieve downed drones in the middle of the lakes because of their value which has huge H&S implications flying them around too low and crashing them being an idiot with it to annoy others drone wars in the sky between anglers using them to fish out of you swim and unsafe areas as people do with bait boats privacy issues noise its illegal to do without the proper permissions (leaseholders dont cut it I dont think, has to be the landowner) looks like there is a few reasons..
  4. Agree with Yonny. Do what you are confident in and fish well and catch the fish. Someone has done well on particle, everyone else has fished particle ever since. no fish come out on boilies because no-one fishes on them! "you wont get them to eat sweetcorn or maize in here mate, they dont like yellow baits" I chucked a handful maize in the margin under a snag and watched 5 carp demolish it about 10 minutes after I heard that.
  5. Echo this. Sometimes I do just drop in a swim on my instincts and knowledge because I think it’ll give me the best chance at some point. Whether a change in wind overnight means it may come good in the morning as I pack up or something. A pre-planned attack.
  6. For me I am confident in my bait and my approach (multi rigs or chods). Really the only part of the puzzle left for me is location, and that's where it's all down to me. I sometimes make the wrong decisions but as long as I act on it by moving or keeping a note of it for next time I am happy. I think the biggest downfall in an angler is stubbornness, I've fallen foul of it a couple of times, determined to get a bite from an area or a swim when I know i'm p*ssing in the wind and should be elsewhere. I am confident that I know what I'm doing though and I know how to find the fish. Sometimes you just cant though and you have to make you're best judgement on previous knowledge and the conditions, if that is the case and I blank then I dont worry too much about it.
  7. Anything will work as long as the levels are right.
  8. When you say as large as possible have you tried making the loop 12mm size so the knot sits inside the boilie. This helps keep it in place on the hair. Something I used to do in my youth. I don’t use hair rigs anymore so haven’t done it for ages but it used to be a good little tip
  9. let me know how it is, I'm tempted to get the semi-stiff instead of the usual Atomic Jel-E-Wyre. Also just picked up a few mushroom trays so I can dry out bait better in the garage.
  10. I’ve got the green but likely I’ll get a Brown if I’m happy with it and mix them together
  11. oddly ive had loads of fish on pop-ups over particle. tench, bream, carp, pike 😂 From real low pop ups to blatant 3 inchers
  12. Some ESP rig putty. Since my original kryston has now ran out. They all seem really poor quality compared so I went for the one I'd heard the best about. Havent got it out the tub yet though.
  13. You're right, they find the most comfortable depth, which is the most stable temperature-wise. Normally the middle layers as cold water is denser and sinks.
  14. not sure what you are trying to achieve with that rig tbh. As elmo says its way too close to the lead and the hook angle is too severe. It is also a running rig which doesnt suit the short hooklength thing you are likely looking to achieve. I have seen people do well straight off the lead with 2/3 inch pop ups using inline or COG leads and a running kit set up does not act in any way the same. How are you expecting the rig to act underwater?
  15. Shocking that the police are at it as well!
