  1. What about Cudmore for a venue. On Tara Lake? Loads of silvers/tench, specimen Carp/Perch and specimen Cats/Pike all in one water?!
  2. A much as I agree with this, a lot of people in the NW have no Carp available naturally, which is why so many mud puddles pop up. My local river produces loads of silvers throughout the whole year, and big bream/barbel/chub are a regular catch. Carp are present but due to being highly nomadic you can find you only catch one of every 1 of several sessions making it frustrating. Also Pike/Perch are present and go to good sizes in the local River. I think unless a commercial has good stocks of Carp in around here you would find very few people on the bank.... The only exception would probably be
  3. I have set myself a tough year ahead. My Primary goals are to catch a few species I have never caught, including a couple of ornamentals. 1. Wells Catish 2. Grass Carp 3. Grayling 4. Golden Tench 5. Koi Carp Also I have set myself a few secondary targets. 1. A river Dee Carp 2. A Pike Over 15lb 3. A Carp Over 25lb 4. A Tench Over 6lb 5. A Perch Over 3lb 6. Bream over 6lb I have plenty of waters which hold these fish, so as long as I put the time in I should be fine. I think the hardest will be the 3lb+ Perch, 6lb+ Tench, and also catching a Golden Tench. Carp shoul
  4. Ok so after a whole season of Carp fishing and the occasional float/maggot feeder session I have decided to head for some Pike tommorow. My venue.... The local River Dee of course! Water is slightly up due to the rainfall but that shouldn't be a problem. Although a very experienced angler, the Pike are where my experience runs out big time. I have done Lure fishing in the past and banked a Pike around 5lb, but the River which I have never caught a Pike from hold monsters of 20+!!! Plenty of jacks also of course. I am going with a friend and I have ensured I have all the correct gea
  5. Ok, I am familiar with Pike fishing in stillwaters/canals but rivers is something I am relatively new to. Even more so with my river which is a little different to most. The area I fish has a weir. Daily the tide comes up on the lower side of the weir which stands at 3.2m but on the odd occasion it spills over the weir and into the main part with tides of up to 5.2m! As you can imagine during these times the river is immensely affected and its not uncommon to see logs the size of cars travelling at about 20+mph upstream. With this tide comes a fair bit of saltwater, from experience when th
  6. Hey! We are off to Hampton Springs tommorow to hit the specimen lake (Folly) Although I have been to Hampton before I have only fished Alice Springs and Rock Pool, both of which produced me some nice Carp to 10lb 6oz. My personal best stands at 16lb so I am really eager to try and beat this tommorow. My normal tactics are a Preston flat in-line method feeder pressed with soaked expander pellets. Hookbait is normally a single grain of corn on a short 3-4 inch hooklength. This seems to pull out plenty of Carp, but as we all know every water is different. Does anyone have any recommen
  7. I spotted these in the tackle shop a couple of days ago, even had a good sniff in the tub! The look absolutely awesome, but I chose the 50/50's instead

  9. I have witnessed inexperienced anglers purchasing shop made hair rigs, then purchasing boilies which are too big for the hook on the rig. As they don't know how to make their own hair rigs they pretty much bend the hook point out slightly making it more exposed rather than being hid underneath the boilie.
  10. You were not by any chance sitting in a swim blanking while watching the Carpy next to you pulling out good Carp using a chod rig and rig putty were you???
  11. A local tackle shopwould normally get you going on closest places, and species ect: possibly even top methods/baits. I often just telephone a tackle shop in the area and go from there
  12. Do you have any local canals you could visit? I have quite a few different free waters such as the canal/river and various ponds which I can fish, all of which are only a £2 return bus journey away. I just take minimal gear, and often my 3 kids who are 8months old, 2 years old and 4 years old with me.... Its a bit of a handful at times, but a nice cheap day out.
  13. Fantastic, thanks for the response! We have found that most often the bites seem to slow right down to a near stop after 11pm (Except for the eels!). This confused me as the section of river is extremely busy with boats during the day, I always felt the boats would scare the fish off and when it goes quiet at night (It goes silent) the Carp would emerge from the shadows and feed heavily... Maybe the Carp are using the boats to their advantage and prefer the silt and disturbance in the water? Nevertheless the Bream and Hybrids are about in the evening so the Carp certainly cant be f
  14. I am currently making my own boilies. I purchased various flavours from Tesco's home baking aisle.... Orange, Strawberry.... and one of them was ''Peppermint!'' I will make some of them tonight and let you know how I get on, the orange worked well so lets see if the Peppermint out-catches it
  15. Ok, so recently I have been targeting the River Dee for its magical Carp. Its not like most places where its stuffed to the brim with the buggers, in fact its quite the opposite! Although these Carp may not be common as such, they are generally pretty big (up to 33lb fish have been pulled out this year alone) A few questions I have are: Do Bream and Carp generally feed together, because we have come across some 6-7lb Bream. I was always led to believe that if the Bream feed there, Carp would certainly patrol also, and possibly around the same times.... Also what baits would you rec
