  1. ^thanks all, looks like im in for a bit of practice!!
  2. Hi, I only just bought a korda eazi stick for my 20mm baits for long range baiting. But...I can't get my head around how to use it. Every time I try the bait simply shatters on the ground infront of me. How do I use it and are there any pointers to get bait further with it? Thankyou
  3. hinders have only just begun stocking this bait range. Before that I had hardly heard of them. But the range its self is massive. Does anybody have any experience with this bait range and...how on earth have I never seen it before when it seems to be a really popular. I mean, for imagination they came up with liquorish flavour boilies, and that seems mad but it works. thankyou
  4. Go on nathan get a bait boat you know you want to it's CHEATING!!But that for another thread!
  5. you lot REALLY like boilies, but that's a bit hypicrytical, because I would choose boilies , hinders of course!
  6. big question, which is your preference, if you had to use ONE OF THEM for the rest of your days, which one would you choose? thankyou
  7. It is a question often asked nower days in carp fishing: how best to deliver bait. Personally I hate spods because I think that carp must flea like hell the second a spod foams up the water. I use a korda easy stick for boilies (20mm) and a big catapult for particles. If I MUST use a spod because its a long way off then I use a spomb. But what in your opinion is the best way of getting bait out there, thinking about disturbance, accurancy and range (if nessesary), one for boilies and one for particles thankyou
  8. I use the little fox rage ultron, its really for pike spinning, but does a fab job for stalking.
  9. for Christmas I got a set of okuma distance surf big pit reels. The first thing that struck me was that they are a sea fishing reel. But I must say, the white and silver colours actually look nice on the bank. The spool is massive and casts really nicely. they will (supposedly) last longer because they are salt water resistant and dont corrode. At the moment I can't tell. But has anybody heard of using beach reels for carp? thankyou
  10. just use car keys to set of their receiver in the night, or just use good old fationed line to set the alarms off. You could take the pegs out of their bivvy, or tie their boot laces together whilst they sleep, thensound their alarm.
  11. Why is it that every season I fall in at least once? And see two more people fall in too. And almost always on the cast! Why is it that once per year I make a fool of myself by hooking a big stick and thinking it was a PB carp, getting the net set up and all to see a massive rotten log covered in black mud surface! And why is it that every year I hook a chair or bivvy on the cast, then end up falling flat on my face! what other angling accidents do you encounter?
  12. Good evening Of all the baits pinched from the kitchen to end up in your tackle bag: which is your favourite? thankyou
  13. I normally use chick peas in the spodmix, would carp like mushy peas too? thankyou
  14. yes, but it don't sink as well as subline, however casts batter. Fair swap?
  15. Doesn't everybody wonder, why in the last 30 years the life span of british carp has declined by over 30% Common carp are supposedly capable of living 40 years, but the average of a fish which reached adulthood in 1980 (carp from fisheries) was about 22 years. Almost all those which died under the age of 16 years died from disease or injury (fisheries tagged fish and tested life span/cause of death). Most of those which lived over 18 years died from old age (nackered organs/weak immune system). In more recent times, since carp angling went industrial and expanded rapidly, the death rate has gone down rapidly until now, where it lies at just over 14 years! Many carp may live longer, but something must have caused it. Remember that carp now, are massively obese with loads of unnatural oils and salt levels, not to mention saturates and the liver constantly dealing with poisons in bait. Another thing which is VERY bad is alcohol in bait. Carp are filter feeders and their liver is used to dealing with minor acids and other natural poisons which occur in silt. The effects of alcohol on the liver of a carp is catastrophic. Have you any other factors leading to the early deaths of UK carp? thankyou
