  1. YOU use worms and a grain of corn do you? (Yeah RIGHT).
  2. Oh right so halibut pellets have gone from being ''low quality fish oils'' to ''50% protein baits'' have they? My old school high protein bait was 80% protein Look each to their own, just use what you like My point was that there are too many popular myths around carp bait If you want to spend all your money on fish food then do it mate
  3. No less an authority than Jim Gibbinson said that HP (As in high protein.. HNV are altogether seperate) baits are only really good in winter, but pretty pointless in warmer temps as carp will prefer low protein baits such as bog standard readymade boilies, tigernuts, particles etc. in summer IMO far too many people believe far too many myths in carp fishing and for me the king of them all is the holy grail mega high protein bait that like I said is, I think, an utter waste of time and money I did my own testing on the lake I fish and an extremely expensive old school high protein mix was time and time again blown out of the water by a handful of my favourite brand of pre drilled halibut pellets, in winter as well as in summer Tossing frozen boilies in dry coarse pellet is like I have now said about four times a very quick and simple way of drying the skin of a bait and thus allowing the baits to continue drying naturally without any hassles at all Like I said it is a good method and you should try it, be careful though because you might like the sheer convenience of it and the fact that it works brilliantly Feel free to carry on air drying baits though, but please don't even imagine that an air dried bait will 'last indefinitely' as that is absolutely not the case and is dangerous thinking as their have been many reported problems of carp deaths due to mouldy old boilies mate
  4. What possible new developments do you see in carp fishing?
  5. anyway over and out, this is hardly the world's most fascinating thread ever anyway.
  6. Did I say halibut pellet? NO I use good quality coarse pellet. Another myth: NO they will NOT last indefinitely air dried, and thinking like that is a sure fire way of poisoning carp with dodgy bacteria. Another myth: NO halibut pellets are NOT a bad winter bait anyway, IF USED IN SMALL DOSES, the oils are so massively high pressure pressed into pellets, that they will 'thin out' way beyond what any oil in a boilie is capable of and disperse in water near freezing easily Yet another myth: NO to milk protein baits. They are an absolute waste of money and carp prefer a bait with about a 20% protein content and a good flavour profile rather than 60-80% protein rip off mixes My method does work, maybe you should try it. It is up to you if you want to waste your time and money, but I am sticking to my guns so don't rubbish what I am saying with rubbish born of reading too many magazines please.
  7. No room to put it? Then get a lead going outside, tape it up, and put a tarp over it securely taped all over it
  8. I was just gonna say keep a lookout for a free freezer or fridge I just got a fridge free from the local pub that was on the blink and runs permanently at -2, lol perfect for temporarily storing large quantities of all sorts of bait
  9. amazing river quite possibly best coarse fishing river in England too, massive perch, great pike, amazing barbel, all sorts
  10. Look I am not being big headed here guys but the sheer simplicity of shaking thawed out boilies for a couple of minutes in a load of dry mini pellets is an idea that shouldn't have been totally overlooked and glossed over so easily, lol What is the point of buying yet another tackle item an air dry bag and hanging them in a tree for two days for the pigeons and squirrels to muller when you can just throw em around in some pellet for 20 seconds, riddle the pellet out again, and have a perfect dry skin on the boilies for a couple of weeks of happy storage (plus a little dusting of extra flavour)?
  11. I wasn't crticising you mate, I was just making the general point that there are good alternatives to both digis and fashionable expensive (and very bulky) dial scales, and if they are that expensive then I would expect them also to be highly accurate, which isn't always the case! I
  12. No but please let us know what it's like as I have a feeling it will be better than the handful of high profile carp books I read that I thought were all rubbish and have put me off carp literature quite a bit to be honest
