  1. You will have to wait until someone really in the know comes along to explain the scientific bit cos i dont know. All i do know is that they are both different from one another, they have different properties and flouro is a lot more expensive than mono. Just look at your ESP Ghost spool, it actually says 'Flourocarbon' on the label After all, would you pay £5 for a 20m spool of monofilament?
  2. Conditions look spot on as well
  3. Im off in about a hour (well when the F1 finishes) for 2 nights.
  4. What do you mean by 'bulking agents'? The Trigga Ice isnt a 'rubbish bait' mate. Its not like its bulked out with the usual semo/soya combo which far inferior baits usually do as you can see from the ingredient list below..... At the moment i dont use the liquid food with it, but i will do once autumn approaches and i ditch the fish oil that i use with it now.
  5. I like the Trigga Ice. I use that in a 50/50 ratio of another base mix for my summer bait. But during the autumn, the Trigga Ice will be my full blown bait in the run up to the winter where its all change again.
  6. I dont want to split hairs but ESP Ghost is a flourocarbon
  7. Get on it then mate. I would love to do Rookley for a week.
  8. I think the place is called Rookley Country Park Some decent fish in there as well so ive seen in the media etc
  9. You can use the n-butyric acid upto 1ml (24 drops) per 500g of dry mix if you wanted though. But i would only do that if the acid was the only smell/label in your bait.
  10. Well done for "sticking to your guns". It makes such a refreshing change to read posts on here about someone who has actually thought their fishing through by experimenting and comparing results (in other words..... 'Getting off their own backside to do it for themselves') instead of expecting all the answers on a plate for them. Keep hauling!
  11. What do you expect from fishing a commercial lake? I wouldnt touch one with a barge pole cos catching 'X' amount of fish in a hour is not fishing to me. Its all about money for the owner and unfortunately fish welfare is definately not at the top of the list.
  12. It is a pretty fish, slightly stunted but it is definately one for the photo album all the same Im not sure if you use one cos i cant see it in the photo, but an unhooking mat would be an idea
