  1. Hi has anyone fished the sand pit lake?

    I was looking for information on stock and condition of the fish.

    The website says there’s fish up to 30lb and other sources suggest the main stock is doubles.

    I am mainly interested in the condition of the fish I don’t mind fishing for doubles if they are healthy and in good condition.


  2. Do you guys  somehow calculate of guess the trajectory of your boilies fired with a catapult?

    I have been fishing a spot in the deeper part of the lake around 12-15ft at 40yards using 15mm boilies .

    I have been having success with a small mesh bag and a handful of catapulted boilies over the top but I often wonder how the trajectory of the bait changes when it hits the water .

  3. Hi i was a after some on spodding advice.

    I am fairly new to carp fishing and have been using 3lb 9ft Nash dwarfs .

    theres a spot I want to get bait to at 40yards and was wondering if I put a shock leader on on of said Nash dwarfs and a small spod would it be capable of reaching the target ?

    Ideally I would like to leave the fluorocarbon mainline on as I would need to set the rod back up with a rig after .

    This will only be for a couple of sessions until funds are available for a suitable rod and reel.



  4. I have searched this forum but didn’t really find anything.

    i am off to Newquay tomorrow for a week and was wondering if anyone could point me towards a lake for carp fishing , i have just blanked 2 days at bluebell so a lake with a good chance of a bite would be preferable.

    fist things first though , how do  I pack my fishing tackle without her seeing or smelling it lol

  5. I have only been fishing 6months now and I have mainly been carp fishing on mostly runs waters , this weekend I wanted to try a night somewhere where there’s a chance of a 20lb plus fish but without  visiting the harder venues that take more experience and skill.

    I was thinking stanwick mallard lake as it a medium difficulty according to the website .

    Any advice on places to fish and tips for the venues would be greatly appreciated.



  6. Hi , 

    I have only been fishing 2 month now.

    I try to read lots of articles and watch the you tube videos and at present I am mainly fishing at biggin in oundle.


    i have been using the method feeder mainly but was wondering if the feeder is likely to sink in silt?


    i have only just started feeling the lead down so hopefully I can find a good spot to fish next time out.
