Line Change Time


Here’s a thought, when spooling up line, do you spool up two or three spools all the with the same line?  If so, why?  Unless you fish all your baits in the same situation, why would you need all the spools to have the same line?  Unless you fish the same spots with all your rod’s – which I’m sure you don’t.  For example, a distance rod requires a distance line, a margin bait would be better suited by using a fluorocarbon coated line, to enable it to be pinned down to the bottom.

If you look at my photo of my rod’s shots on the bank, you will spot that I don’t always use the same line on both rod’s.

When I spool up my reels and spare spools each time, I try and cover all the fishing situations which I will come across that year (as best as I can).  This year I have gone for.

For distance, this time I am using ASSO Mainline Pro & Mainline Abrasion

And for the margin fishing, I spooled up with Fluorocarbon coated & Sinking Mainline

All done and set for the next few months.

Hope this Helps

All set for a few nights on the bank.


Let’s hope all this rain hasn’t put pay to the carp feeding.

Trip 20 Carp Fishing – 2018


I had a few hours to spare today, clearly, I wasn’t going to be out gardening!

So, I popped down the local lake.  I didn’t fancy being too far away from my kid’s school, these day’s, they close at a drop of a hat.

I had the Deeper with me and I managed to locate some fish.

The water temperature was pretty grim but you never know.  As the morning moved on, so did I, to a few more spots which contained fish.

It was very bleak out there and despite my best efforts with the catalyst boilies.

Spotted Fin Bait – Booster Spray – Catalyst

 

I could only temp a small bream but that could have been what the Deeper found or they just did not fancy feeding this morning.

Until next time

Deeper Pro Plus – Does The Business


The Deeper Pro Plus certainly did the business for me and could for you too.

I was out mapping a few spots for the coming season and found a group of carp in a swim.  After I had finished, I returned to check if they were still about and sure enough they were.  As luck would have it, I also brought my tackle down the lake (for this very reason!).

I got the rods all set up and flicked the Deeper out.  I located the spot they were in and the flicked a 1.5oz lead out and then clipped up.  I baited up the rod with a Masala pop up and did the same with the other rod but put a miracle berry Wafter on this one.  I used small bags on each rod, which were sprayed with Catalyst booster spray.

Within an hour I had my first take and before I even sorted the fish out the other rod was off!  I had one fish in the retaining sling and one in the net!

The Deeper Pro Plus is very easy to use and results like this could come your way.

Tight lines

New NSR Net


My new NSR net arrived today, with super quick delivery from Evolution Carp Tackle.

I would highly recommend that you read the leaflet that comes with the NSR, I know as men, that we don’t like to read instructions, but these are critical to the operation of the net on and out of the water.

I can’t what to get on the bank and try my NSR out and land my first carp in it.

Trip 19 Carp Fishing- 2018


For this trip, I was doing two nights and I was being joined by a friend on the second night.  The conditions when I arrived at the lake is what can only be described as stormy.

The centre of the rain storm was passing right over me.  Like any normal angler, I started to have a look round.  The swim choice was a bit reduced, we were planning on a ‘good old’ social on Saturday night.  This gave me the option of a few good swims and I was hoping that the weather may put other anglers off tonight.  When I arrived, 3 of the swims had already gone.  After speaking to another member who had spotted fish in front of him, this wasn’t too far away from where I had caught my last two fish.  I headed for the corner swim in the hope they may be still about, if this wasn’t the case, they must not be far away.

The night passed with plenty of wind and rain and a few liners (probably due to that).  Saturday morning was a different day completely.  No wind, a tiny bit of rain and a little hope of sunshine to warm the lake up.

My friend turned up before 11 and had to set up in the rain, which was a bit unfortunate.  He did find some nice spots that he was happy with.

I was treated to a Tench around mid-afternoon and as evening fell upon us, the sun came out again.

I had re-baited the right-hand rod which was now the left and flicked a bait into the corner.  This is where I have had a few fish before from and catapulted a load of chopped up Smokey Jack boilies over the top. I was fishing an Fw miracle berry Wafters with a washed yellow maggot cluster, I was sticking to the Masala Pops ups   on the other rod.  I had also topped up the swim with a few spombs of chopped Smokey Jack as well.

The night passed without a bleep and was woken by a cool easterly breeze blowing in my face.

Another nice morning and may be lucky in the last few hours.

It was not to be

Until next time

Deeper Pro Plus Hints & Tips – Mapping Feature – P6


Another great feature of the Deeper is the ability to view your data that you have mapped out, either on your own personal computer or tablet, on the Lakebook map page.

20180225_1740261783721821.jpg

 

You can rename each download, by clicking on the Info button and highlighting the recording you wish to rename.

20180224_17035989558921.jpg

20180224_1701151762411683.jpg

You have the ability to view the full record of your mapping as one big map or the individual recordings you made if each swim.

On the individual recording, you can access the sonar feature of each area you have mapped.

You also have the ability to measure the distance to your favourite spot.  This can be done using map or satellite mode.

I find the satellite mode quite helpful as you can find your horizon markers.

You can access the depths as well.

You will need to set your Deeper to shore mode and create an account on the lake bed page. https://maps.deepersonar.com

I hope you found this very helpful in your Deeper journey.

Until next time
