The Big Red Carp Fishing Blog
Most anglers will tell you that the autumn period from the start of October until Christmas is by far the best time to fish for carp...And they are right!
I think most carp anglers would agree that summer is by far the most productive time of the year for catching carp. They are at their most active and they seem prepared to eat just about anything.
There are many contradictory opinions about particles in winter, with some pundits saying they are a big no-no and others telling you they are better by far than a boiled-baits approach! In fact both are effective and while boilies may rule the roost on one water, particles may be dominant on another. And of course, there will certainly be waters where BOTH boilies and particles work well in the colder months.
