  1. Re: What GB fish specie wise up the quickest--

    Big old carp in low stocked big gravel pits can be very hard to catch, I have watched them and they can be soooo not interested in bait.

    I had the same 14lb+ bream 4 times last summer so that...

    Re: My Carp lake

    If you’ve a good chance of having the place to yourself and fish it regularly then put in bait whenever you leave ready for next time.

    Re: Chub and the future

    Just to add that I think of all the species on the Great Ouse the chub is probably best equipped to adapt and survive.

    Big young fish coming through aswell as older dogs hanging on in there.

    Re: Here we go again!!!!

    The Drennan Method feeder line is good for the barbelling on the Great Ouse, Whitty.

    I use the 10lb straight through and have never been let down by it.

    Re: Does flavouring work

    Sorry guys but these are indisputable facts:

    Oil does not diffuse in water.

    Water is denser than oil so oil floats on top of water.

    Re: Does flavouring work

    I don’t want to divert this thread, but this is semantics.

    It is the fishmeal in the trout pellets that fish can detect and are attracted to.

    I am not saying fish do not like oil in bait, they...

    No, oils are not an attractor, oils are not soluble: cannot be made soluble and are therefore not a soluble attractor.

    Re: Does flavouring work

    No it isn’t a brand name, lol.

    What I meant was, you want something that is soluble and actually attractive to the carp.

    When people add flavours to their pellets etc they are upping the...

    Re: Does flavouring work

    Soluble attraction is what you want, Carp basically forage and feed in mud and silt so flavour/taste is not really an issue for them

    Re: Fox Warrior XT

    Most rods will struggle to cast 3 pound leads

    With those rods you should be able to cast 80 yards with 2 to 3 OUNCE leads.

    Simple lead clip set up or helicopter rigs is all you need.

    I’ve got the last few days off and I’m hoping for there to be a nice bit of extra water in the rivers so I can go after a big barbel.

    I love codding in a flooded Great Ouse :)

    I think the whole barbel ‘scene’ became saturated and even for the most hardcore there is only so many ways to write about bait and waiting or fishing 6 foot hook-lengths on the Trent etc.
