The Big Red Carp Fishing Blog
I caught her today weighing 65lb 8oz...A new personal best. Baiting strategy, as always, comprised SuperSoft Pellets, SuperNut paste and Liquid Robin Red-laced hemp seed (among other bits and pieces). She was a big old girl...
A few small tweaks to try and get the edge needed to unlock what has been a very difficult water producing no more than a handful of carp since the last week in October. This needs to be small but effective as I didn't want the carp getting preoccupied from over baiting the swim.
The SuperSoft Pellets have now been out for about 18 months and in that time they have attracted a strong fan base of dedicated carpers.
I have been using micro seeds and particles since Noah was a lad. The main reason is because of the preoccupation these tiny seeds can promote.
'Up the line' or 'Up-country' is a term some of you may be familiar with, especially if you have a connection with Cornwall, and to some, especially the proper Cornish, it literally means travelling over the border, which is the river Tamar. In fact, when I was younger there were a few old villagers who`d never been very far - certainly not over the Tamar river!
Way back in the mists of time I wrote an article for the Nutrabaits magazine/catalogue outlining how I go about making my hookbaits stand out from the crowd. Much water has flowed under the bridge since then so I thought I would update the original with my current thinking on boosted hookers!
