  1. Hi everyone ive got the JRC Radar CX alarms in blue but the reciever is playing up a bit, when you turn it on it doesnt always turn on and i have to fiddle with the button a bit to get it to connect, i think the problem is a loose connection or maybe a dry solder somewhere. Does anyone know if they can be taken apart so repairable? Ive looked for a new reciever and the multi coloured one is available but cant find the blue one. I did contact jrc but they weren't very helpful. Thanks.
  2. Hi im thinking of joining layfields next year could anyone tell me what its like please? Thanks.
  3. Hi everyone, I'm thinking of getting a winter ticket for this lake could anyone tell me how it fishes and stock level and obviously any tips please? Thanks.
  4. Hi guys, my mate and I are both on a syndicate lake but want to do a baiting campaign on a few areas which aren't fished too much this year. We plan on going a couple of times a week after work to spod in a load of boilies, bird seed etc in our chosen areas ready for our regular Friday night sessions. Anyway just wondered if anyone else did this or has done this and got any tips? Thanks
  5. I wouldn't mind info on this lake too as its not far from me.
  6. Hi everyone has anyone got any tips for keeping the gas bottle warmer during these cold winter nights?. I've got a cover for it but its usually got so cold overnight that the gas trickles out in the morning which is a pain when you're gagging for that first brew in the morning. Thanks.
  7. Hi everyone just a quick question, do some boilies not work on some waters?. The reason I ask is that me and my mate have bought some new nut based boilies from a local supplier, now I know big carp have been caught on them at other local lakes and they are a quality bait but don't know if anyone on our syndicate waters use them. We used them on a 48hr session on our hard, low stock water a couple of weeks ago and didn't even get a run, to be fair I don't think much was caught by anyone else either. My mate has gone to our runs water today just for the day, one rod on the krill and one rod on the new bait, he's had so far 4 carp all to the krill but nothing on the new bait this is why I was just wondering if maybe the new bait doesn't suite our waters or if that's possible. Thanks.
  8. Hi guys just a quick question, what are your thoughts about using different freebie boilies to your main hook bait ones? I've heard several different views from people I fish with, some saying they will only use the same and others who say its all food and will get the carp munching in your hook bait area so will use different ones with no problems. Just wondered what you all think? Thanks.
  9. Hi everyone, I've always used shelf life boilies but want to give frozen a go. There's a company near me which do their own baits, you get them fresh in 5kg bags and you have to freeze them yourself so was going to break them down into say 5 x 1kg bags. Anyway to my questions, how long before fishing do you have to take them out of the freezer and how do you 'look after them' during a trip and can you refreeze any unused boilies? Also I've heard of 'air-drying' freezer baits but don't know what that is so if anyone can explain then that would be great. Thanks.
  10. Yes mate. I use fox black label bobbins, they are there but you cant see them very well in the photo.
  11. Hi guys, what is the best way to prepare pigeon conditioner please? Some people tell me to soak for 24hrs then boil but others say they use the cool box trick for 24hrs. Also i've been told to add molasses, how much would you put say for every kg of conditioner and at what point? Thanks.
  12. Yes they come with covers and haven't used them in the rain yet to be honest
  13. Yeah ive got a set and absolutely love them. A mate of mine who is far more experienced than me was so impressed after seeing mine that he sold his wychwood ones and bought himself a set.
  14. Hi everyone just wondered if anyone has ever fished here or know what its like? Thanks.
  15. Hi everyone, just wondered what everyone's opinions were of buzz bars or pods and which do you use?. I usually use a pod but most people I know use buzz bars and poo poo pods. Just wondered if there are reasons where one may be better than the other or is it just a personal thing? Thanks.
  16. Hi guys I'm thinking of getting some snag ears but don't know which to get for my set up. I use a Nash H-Gun 3 Rod Pod, JRC Radar CX Alarms and Fox Black Label Slik Bobbins. Don't want to pay huge amounts of money but have heard the NGT ones are no good so you get what you pay for I suppose. Thanks.
  17. Sorry guys yet another boilie question. Just been reading one of the angling weeklies and this company was advertising their boilies. They look good to me but wondered if anyone has tried them or know anything about them? 5kg of krill for £30 delivered!! Thanks.
  18. My boy got me one for xmas and I love it, 2 white light settings and 2 red.
  19. Hi everyone, just got back from the Carpin on show and Terry Hearn did a very interesting talk and said that he likes using maize. Firstly I haven't a clue how to prepare maize but he also said it is very good at taking in a flavour so would you add a flavour to maize before cooking or after? He said that his fav flavour could be bought from a supermarket and was sweet and salty but wouldn't say what it was, me and my mate spend the journey home trying to work it out but couldn't so hope you guys have some ideas. Thanks.
  20. Hi guys just a quick question, if I bought say a 5kg bag of shelf life boilies and wanted to open the bag and repack them in 1kg lots would they be ok if I got as much air out of the bags as possible or is it a case of once they are exposed to air they will start to deteriate? Thanks.
  21. Hi everyone, my mate and I are planning a 72hr mid week trip in early may away from our normal syndicate water but would like suggestions on a venue please. We don't want it too big 10-15 acres if poss and with a few features to fish too, a good head of mid double and upwards carp and as we live in Norwich, Norfolk somewhere within a 2-3hr drive would be good. We also want to be able to book it so we know weve got swims when we arrive. This is what we would like but our criteria is a bit flexible for the right water. Thank you.
  22. Hi everyone and happy new year. Have seen the baitology boilies advert in a lot of the magazines and they look quite good and cheap boilies but just wondered if anyone has used them and knows what they are like?. Thanks.
  23. Went down my syndicate lake yesterday afternoon with a couple of mates looking forward to a 24hr session but the lake was frozen over and the ice was around 1cm thick so we all went home again
