I have already started my baiting campaign on new syndi water. It's going to ba a tough nut to crack I think, but the rewards should be well worth it hopefully.

Cool

I've just spooled up with some 15lb PowerPro specifically for floater fishing as I'm really gonna give it a go this year. I've done it before when the fish have been up in the water and cast out some bread or some other floating bait. My biggest is a 10lb carp. Other times when it is in the height of summer with plenty of flies buzzing around, I've grabbed one and hooked it then cast that out. That really can turn a frustrating day around.

I'd like to ask a couple of questions to you lads that do more carping than I do.

What rod will be best for floater fishing for carp? Is my Fox Warrior Z 2.75lb going to be too heavy for this type of fishing and would I be better off using a lighter waggler type rod for more comfort?

Also I want to give more time to stalking and was thinking of buying a dedicated stalking rod such as the Wychwood Extricator but can't decide whether to go for a 6ft or 9ft one. 6ft would be better for getting through the undergrowth and bushes but would I have more control over a hooked fish with a 9ft one?

Cheers chaps.

I'll be starting my tench campaign soon but I'll have to get some carp fishing in as well. I'll probably hit the commercial until the local water warms a bit. It's well shallow and very open to boot, so I'll wait till the sun gets to it. Nobody really fishes it, or not seriously at least, so me and my mate should hopefully come up with something.

I'd opt for something a bit lighter myself, like a 2-2.25 but it also depends on the size of the fish and the action of the rod really.
I often use a 1.25 avon rod on a local pit that has carp to the 18-20 mark,had them to 12 out of there with no bother.

As for the stalker i'd say the 9ft, as you said a bit more control over the fish and better line pick up on the strike.

More on topic with the particles, hemp maize and pidgeon conditioner with a good splash of mollasses is a good mix.

It's a seed mix, for feeding pidgeons that has a twang of aniseed to it, pick up up from annimal supply places, same as the mollasses, hemp and maize, far far cheaper than the tackle shop, though some have twigged and upped the price it seems but still cheaper.

I've always bought my mollasses from the local pet shop. £5 for a 5lt tub or take a small pop bottle in and she will fill it for a quid Rolling Eyes

And yes, she does know what I use it for and not upped the price Smile

I also get my carp/bream 'groundbait' from her too. Vitalin.

Ah right Mike. As soon as I read aniseed, I thought I've heard mention of it somewhere. Cheers mate.
