    Re: Spinning on a standard rod?

    The rod was heavy, floppy and slow.

    The casting weight of the rod depends upon the size of lure you're casting, I regularly use lures for pike around the 100g mark and they're not heavy on the...

    Re: Spinning on a standard rod?

    Many years ago I started lure fishing with a 11ft 1.75lb TC carp rod, it wasn't ideal but I still caught fish.

    Does it regularly outfish the ned rig or soft baits rigged on a cheb?
  5. Re: I have developed a unique finesse lure rig called “The Thread Rig”

    As there is no weight attached to the hooks and lure is free to rotate will the hooks not just come to rest hook points touching the bottom? Looks like a recipe for blunt hooks at best or a snag a...
  6. Re: Hook Sizes when fishing Fox soft lures...

    Unfortunately hooks of supposedly the same size can be different lengths with different gapes, just as softbaits of the same length can be different shapes and thickness making it difficult to have...
  7. Re: What was your first fish and where did you catch It ?

    I was knee high to a grasshopper and on holiday somewhere up North, I'd made friends with a another boy on the campsite and he took me 'fishing' for bullhead that we caught by lifting stones and then...

    Re: Global warming? Oh no not again!!!

    :omg::omg:

    97% percent of climate scientists agree that the Earth's climate is warming due to man. I can believe them or some random fella that put a video up on youtube.
  10. Re: EU commits to the Water Framework Directive: rejecting attempts by member states

    I was being sarcastic.

    I very much doubt anything will change regarding water quality in the UK but it would have done without Brexit. But then I'm very cynical
  11. Re: EU commits to the Water Framework Directive: rejecting attempts by member states

    Luckily, due to Brexit, the UK will be free to ignore this ruling :)

    I've used all sorts of animal feeds in the past, including horse feed but I honestly can't remember the brands. IMO they're excellent for mass pre-baiting where quantity is needed, particularly if...

    Re: Canal lure fishing-Need some advice.

    I rig them up on a size 6 jig head, I'm using the AGM finesse jig heads.

    The weight is a balancing act as it all depends upon wind, water depth, retrieve speed etc. You NEED to maintain contact...

    Re: Ticks

    The quicker you get them out the less chance of infection. Burning them or suffocating them can cause them to vomit before they drop off increasing your chance of infection. The best and safest way...

    Re: Canal lure fishing-Need some advice.

    2-10g or a 1-7g will handle jacks, I might not choose those weights to target pike but I wouldn't be worried about the odd fish coming along. As an example of what these rods can cope with the below...

    Re: Canal lure fishing-Need some advice.

    I use fluoro, which isn't tooth proof, with single barbless hooks on lures of less than 2" presuming jacks aren't a problem. With trebles, bigger lures or waters with lots of Jacks then I use wire, I...

    re: Do pike really bite through line?

    Nope, a pike's tooth is shaped like a knife blade, the sides are sharp as are the points. A zander's tooth is shaped like a pin, so round sides and a sharp pointy top.



    A pike can't purposely...

    Re: Canal Jigging Setup help
