In terms of fishing I am a guy who likes different things but, for example, I do not like the 2-3 day ‘long weekend’ sessions, because then most of the precious time is spent on packing. When I am packing the car and leaving home with the ‘Gang’ for a week, then the carp rods and the big pit reels are starring. For these days I switch my brain to a different channel, and I follow the ‘one fish makes my day’ principle.
It happens often that I have just half a day for a quick fishing session. In this case, I will be using either feeder or picker rods and I am not dreaming of ‘big-eyed’ carp, or screaming alarms, I just want to see the rod tip moving, to enjoy the continual play of the fish and have a day of fun and action.
We were planning a short session like this with my Dad, for a long time, so I sent a mail to the guys asking if anybody wanted to join us. Gaben wanted to do so, but unfortunately something came up for him and in the end he could not make it.
I was preparing for a busy day with a method feeder, so I decided to try something new. Of course, not something entirely new, just ‘new’ for me. I thought that I would give a method a try that I read about several times in the fishing magazines. It is all about putting small, pressurized pellets into the method feeder, and I wanted to do this with SBS products. It is not a secret that I like to watch the videos of Steve Ringer, the British pole angling guru and I was using his tips also to make my baits.
I will show you how, through the following pictures.
I have prepared two different pellets (I was using two maggot boxes). I put Robin Red in the first one and Robin Gold in the second one (approx. one full spoon from each). These additives are not just giving a spicy flavour to the bait, but some colour too! On this spicy-fishy mix goes approximately 1 dl Cranberry flavoured CSL based Flumino Groundbait Mixer. You could use also Betain, Edge, or essential oils to produce a unique bait-combination for your session! Sometimes this is the only thing that is missing to be successful…
It seems that the carp liked the prepared pellets and the soluble hook baits a lot, because the rod tip was bending once every 15 minutes during the entire session. My next plan is to use bigger pellets (6-8 mm) with the same method. I think that if we would put this into a PVA mesh or a PVA bag, then this could be the key to success, also when we are targeting big fish.
