Tell me more about Magnum White

I received a message last night asking why Magnum White has been such a great cold water catcher. So here is my answer...

Changing Seasons

The seasons are well and truly changing and as we move into March, here is a late catch up from my angling over these past 3 months.

Snow Carp and consistent festive action

Well, it was a rather mixed period for me whilst away from the office for the annual festive break. I started off fishing for the barbel in the mild conditions leading to Christmas day and was fortunate enough to net myself a couple of nice fish but these faded into insignificance by Ron Key’s 14.06 as reported in the last of the 2014 reports. It truly was a pleasure to see and photograph this fish, which fell to the Questrami.

So you want to catch a carp over the Christmas period?

With the festive holiday looming and many of us with a few days away from work commitments the thought of escaping to the great outdoors with the carp rods to unwind after possibly over indulging on the food and drink is somehow rather appealing.

Sorting the Bait as we Approach Winter

As the cooler weather is now starting to set in it is time for my annual Autumn sort out of my tackle and bait but particularly the bait. From past experience I know that some of the baits that catch me a lot of summer fish will now stop working as effectively with the lowering of the water temperature. Yes, the carp will still eat them but certainly not with the same gusto as they did a month back. There are many reasons for this but on the whole they won’t be seeping out anything like same sort of attraction or stimulation to the fish that they did before the drop in temperature.

It isn't just small tiny baits you will catch on during the cold winter months. During a time when many scale their baits down, it can be a lovely little edge going the opposite way.

Winter Bait Choice is Critical

There was a comment on facebook the other day that I responded to and thought I should add it here too.

Someone asked how important I think bait is.
