  1. Anyone know any rusty websites that do spare Daiwa spools preferably the crosscast 5000/5500?
  2. I get what you guys are saying with going into the shop but I don’t drive and the tackle shop near me is a joke the owner won’t budge on prices either and can get them at better price online. Luckily my mate has the Daiwa Crosscast reels but the 5500 so I’ve been able to have a good look and feel and anyway thanks for all your help guys
  3. Right I’ve found some I’m happy with but there’s just one thing I’m a little confused about, you see most reels are 5000,10000 and so on but what does this mean as my friend has some that are 14000 which hold 400metres of 15lb line and the 5000s I’m looking at hold 300 metres of 15lb line. Can anyone help??
  4. Still haven't made up my mind lol and a as looking again today and saw some Shimon aerlex 10000 tbs for £53 instead of £80 any good??
  5. Alright mate was wondering if you could help me out a little bit as I'm planning on revisiting the ebro targeting them monsters! And with there being so many different companies offering guided cat fishing I don't know who to choose and am a bit cautious of who to go with after speaking to someone who claimed they had a few bad trips with some companies who had around like 20 people sharing 6 rods all taking it in turns Which isn't really what I'm looking for I want a more private/exclusive trip for two anglers for 7 nights with a guide and tackle and the option to fish for carp.

    If you could help would be much appreciated 

  6. Any recommendations on power packs the only ones I've found that seem any good are the ridge monkeys power packs. So I thought ill ask the pros before getting one. Cheers
  7. Is anyone a member of the wadaa and know how to get a night ticket? As I was thinking of joining but don't drive so was after somewhere that do night tickets as well I read on their website that you can get a night ticket but wasn't sure how and weather or not you have to be fishing there for awhile first??
  8. Guys I’m looking at going back to Spain on the Ebro but didn’t have the best of experiences don’t get me wrong it was good and the guy were really helpful but the area we was in was really low on water so was looking at trying a different area. I hear near Barcelona is quite good BUT I’ve heard the guides themselves aren’t the best and tend to over crowd with like 12 people fishing 6rods taking it in turns which isn’t really a bit of me! So can anyone recommend any company’s that do like a private fishing trip so it will only be my group?? Although I have seen some places offer a villa with swims at the bottom of the garden which could be what I’m after but don’t know if they will be as good. Can anyone help?
  9. Guys I’m looking at getting myself some big pit reels but not sure what ones to get as there are so many to choose from! Now I’m not one to spend big bucks but at the same time don’t want some budget reels that won’t last a season, or some big chunky thangs! I’m not bothered about the colour or anything more looking for a good all rounder with a fast drag, preferably not to heavy either! As I was looking at the sonics x 8000 which are going for £50 but on the reviews they said they were quite heavy. I’m after a set of three max budget of £200 any help would be much appreciated
  10. Any one have any experience with these waverunner shuttle bait boats as my Friend has one and let me borrow it but when I was testing it before I used it I noticed the hopper wouldn't open while it was empty so I put some batteries in to add some weight and they opened is this normal?? also when I tried to get the hoppers to open when it was empty the lights would come on saying it was open when it wasnt. I didn't end up using it in case they i get to where I want to place my bait and it doesn't open where I want it.
  11. Hi guys anyone from Spain or knows how the fishing works out there as my friend has a place out there and was thinking of taking advantage of that n go fishing in Spain. Now I know you can fish the Ebro but don’t think he’s close to that but he is close to some lakes but don’t know how to get licenses and stuff

    Guys I'm thinking of giving the zigs a try keep hearing so much about them but honestly don't really no how to use them. I have tried a few times but failed. I think I know how to make them and have a zig float to make life a bit easier but what size zig would I use with the float I was thinking 3ft but not sure. Also when making them what hooks would you suggest as was thinking mixas. And how would you know where to start depth wise or would it depend on the air pressure say if it was high work your way down if its low work ur way up or always start from the bottom?? Most importantly can u still spod out over the top this time of year?
  13. Typical plan to go fishing for my birthday and the lakes are frozen over! How will it effect fishing? As I’ve herd mixed opinions that when the ice goes it can fish really well and also herd that they shut down
  14. I to be fair we was thinking about farlows but when ever I've gone there before it is always ram jam and with the winter deal going can imagine its still just as busy but will probably head for that area and give it a look and go from there. What other lakes are near farlows?
  15. Hi guys happy new year. Thinking of going down Thorpe lea for a social on my bday due to the stock levels and and it’s winter form but everyone I talk says the same thing you don’t want to go there the fish are in a bad way but is it just their mouths that are bad as I’m not expecting to catch anything special just want a few runs. As my usual lake has slowed right down so thought I’ll try somewhere else
  16. Guy my friends receiver stopped working the other day do any of you know where you can get a fox rx3 receiver either fixed of a new one as I've been looking online and can't find one only find the odd complete set.
  17. Guys I'm looking at getting a new bed chair and was wondering if you guys had any recommendations as there not exactly cheap. But I'm thinking about getting one that will suite someone who's 6ft as I have one now but my feet come over the end also one that you don't really feel the frame on your knees. Cheers
  18. Guys me and a friend are trying to crack a new water and we've been walking the lake talking to people trying to learn what we can but a lot of people claim to not know what works so we're going to have to do it the hard way and run a few tests and possibly blank a few times but when testing a bait to see if it works how long would you test it for before trying a different bait? As my friend caught one the other day on pink fake corn but being this is the only one we've caught I don't know if it was a fluke just in the right place at the right time. But at the same time I don't want to ignore it in case either corn or pink is part of the key so I was thinking of going with a small pink pop up while he uses pink corn. But not sure how long should persevere before changing as you never know when your on the fish as they are quite shy and don't really show themself to much
  19. Guys I've been fishing a easyish commercial and have done really well there before but the last few times ive really struggled even when on the fish all I can think is maybe the bait or I'm just going through one of them bad spells so I was wondering how you would approach a commercial? That way I can compare with what I'm doing and change bits.
  20. Guys has you every thought about surface fishing and how easy it can be to draw the carp in. Now is there anyway we can do this on the bottom? As I've thought about fishing bread on the bottom and soaking some mixers so they sink but the idea of the bread on the bottom not lasting to long getting softer every second make me question the idea and then I think about the time I tried topping my luncheon meat with bead and done quite well on it makes me think hmm maybe there is a way.
  21. Guys how would you go about fishing nights inbetween work as I'm going to be working a month straight so won't have any time for fishing unless I go in between work and fish nights. But I tend to struggle with getting bites through the night so any tips on how you would approach fishing just nights in between work would be great. Also the lakes a commercial with a no good bailiff who just wants your money so can't get away with leaving my stuff there to keep the swim and rest it during the day. So I'm likely to be fishing different swims each time.
  22. Only gone and smashed it in france we got the double peg as planned and managed to land 16 fish with a few lumps as well I had two 50s biggest being a 57lb and my mate had the lake record fish at 62.14lb. Thanks for all your help especially you yonny as I took your advice on how many rods to put out and ended up only fishing two rods and caught the most fish!😀
  23. Guys any basic tips you can share for fishing weedy lakes? Like do I want to fish a tight line, slack line. Back leads/flying back leads? And how to present a bait in a whole in a bed on weed stuff like that.
  24. When a fish jumps out the water what does it mean as I notice sometimes they jump head and shoulders out the water and other times they just poke their head out. Is there a difference between the two as I herd that one is a sign to say their there feeding and another means something different I can't remember.
  25. I personally always struggle with the marker float and second guess everything I find yet I know what the signs are with the tap tap being gravel and and when it plugs in its usually silt but how do you know when your going over a bar or come across a dip in the lake bed without having to bring the float to the surface? Also what things would you look for as everyone says about finding the gravel spots but what if there is no gravel or its a mainly gravel bottom? Or is it just a case of if the lake bed is mainly soft find the harder spots and if its hard/gravel look for the soft spots? Also where would you place your rods on these spots that you've found would you fish somewhere in the middle or stick to the edges of the spot??
