What is your newest purchase


Recommended Posts

Following my Spod/Marker thread earlier in the week i've been monitoring the 'bay'.


Ended up buying a Mitchell Avocarp 700 reel loaded with floating braid used once £32 .


Also , an Xplode Bait Delivery System and an Avid Marker Float kit including 2 feature finding leads.


Well pleased :)

Small fox bolt bubbles, zig/floater hook length and floating mainline.

As I am either going to be using bait bands or glue to hold the hook bait, would you still tie the hook on with a knotless knot or would a palomar be ok, as I don't know what to do with the hair end of the knotless knot as I won't be using it.

Went with the palomar, worked ok had two small fish on and lost both  :oops: not bad though for a few hours in the evening

Unlucky, bet it set the pulse racing when they slurped the bait down, make sure the bait is keeping the hook straight and is as tight to the shank as possible might get a better hook hold

Yep they are quite impressive considering they are not small .

My first thought were that they might be a bit close to the hookbait and would spook the fish but that doesnt happen im pleased to say .











Just dont use the Leadcore with it :) :) :)
