You could try filling your feeders with some of the marine based groundbait mixes we use for carp along with some fish oils in the mix,should give a good scent trail without actually feeding your quarry,just leading them to your baited hooks.If you use essential oils in the mix dont put too much in ...

Glad to hear it DCM-personally think the disabled forum is a valuable addition to the site,its very easy when people are able bodied to forget that everyday activities that they take for granted are not so easy for those with mobility problems for example,keep up the good work mate! :D :D :D Mick

Hi all, As a kid I spent a lot of school holidays with my grandparents who lived at St. Annes-on-Sea, on the Lancashire coast. I remember one particularly cold winter, possibly 1963, when parts of the sea actually froze. I know that many people will not believe me, but I swear I saw it with my own ...

A 44 if I remember rightly ... the writing has all gone as has most of the paint. Too small for anything heavy but I use it for spinning / floating for Mullet. I also have a 55 which has a skirt and is more useful for general spinning. Am I right in thinking the 44 has a blue body/light colour fron...

Very much like a multiplier .. once you get accustomed to it you get the feel of doing things without even being able to see. You drive your car in the dark with just quick glances at the controls to press switches and you generally use your indicators without even having to take your eyes off the ...

Yes I've caught a few off Whitby in past years. It's a salt water Catfish, also known as Wolfish.
