Spotlight On….. Bait-Tech Max Feeder and Karma

For the first part of my new series, I thought I’d have a look at the Max Feeder and Karma groundbaits which I’ve started using this year as my edge/margin mix. Max Feeder is new for 2019 and Bait-Tech say it’s quite possibly the best feeder groundbait they have ever developed! It’s a gorgeous olive colour and has elements of Special G

Perry St Pond – Spring League 7 – 30th June 2019

As we reach the business end of the league, the only thing separating the Tart and Bushy at the top of the table is weight as they stand toe to toe trading blows like a couple of duelling piscators! Who would be the first to concede ground? Perry High was the destination for our section today and I was hoping to avoid

MD Floats Review

After recently reviewing the Selfie Fish, Paul from Peejay Tackle has also now added MD Floats to the website, MD Floats is the brain child of keen match angler Mark Davis, so he knows what works! There are four popular patterns available on the website and I’ve listed them below along with the descriptions, Open Water Chimps – This pattern is very

Lakeview – 23rd June 2019

I’ve been really enjoying revisiting some venues I haven’t fished for a long time and also going to some new ones so when the Tart invited me to a match at Lakeview near Crediton, I said I’d be up for it, especially when he told me you’d need 150lb to win with loads of carp averaging 2-3lb apiece. Now regular readers of

Perry St Pond – Spring League 6 – 16th June 2019

For round six our destination was Perry Low and most of us met at Millfield cafe for another fantastic breakfast before heading out the pond to do the draw. Once again it looked like the British Summer was on hold as while we were unloading the cars, it chucked it down! Smithy took shelter in the back of his van but more

Spotlight On….. Bait

Bait is obviously an essential part of what we do and if you walk into any tackle shop you will be confronted by a wall of colourful packaging with a multitude of different aromas from the heavenly and gorgeous to the downright disgusting! It’s a massive industry with new firms seemingly popping up all the time and with each new groundbait and

Trinity Waters – 9th June 2019

The next Stoke AA match was at Trinity Waters, a venue I’ve only ever fished once before, way back in 2014, re-reading that blog post, I’d really enjoyed it and said I’d be back soon but it’s actually taken me five years! With it being quite a while since I last visited, I tried to get some up to date info and

New Bait-Tech products for 2019

When Bait-Tech started publicising their new product range for 2019 earlier this year, it was a fairly modest release compared to previous years but there were some right crackers amongst them with several complimenting existing ranges perfectly. Pro Natural Bream Dark – I love the Pro Nat range of groundbaits and use them for nearly all of my fishing on lakes and

Sadborow – Spring League 5 – 2nd June 2019

We were back at Sadborow for round five and after a gorgeous hot and sunny day on Saturday, I was hoping for more of the same but as I loaded the car, it was overcast and looking like we’d be in for some rain. We met at Millfield cafe for breakfast and after everybody was fed and watered, it was time to

Summerhayes – Open – 27th May 2019

Another Bank Holiday means another days fishing so I booked into Summerhayes but this time the match was on Longs. I stopped at the Toby for breakfast but was a little early (yes you read that right, early!) and as I parked up, Alvin, Debs and Jess (Zooner) were already outside waiting for it to open. With our bellies full, it was
