    Nash and dynamite bait for sale

    I doubt if the fish read the expiration dates. Looks like you have a big stock of baits. You should go fishing more often to use them up. Wish I had known this in mid-June. Was in Lancaster, PA for vacation. Good luck on the relocation. FWIW, counted where I have lived in 71 years including military. Had 25 addresses. People ask why I moved so much. "Cheaper than paying rent!"

    CanAm 2018 - CANCELLED

    That's to bad. Was looking forward to it. See everyone next year I hope.
  6. Two weeks before the tournament and no registrations from our American friends, in this situation, the tournament is CANCELLED .
  7. Viper storm 2 with echo and 6 batteries with charger Make me a sensible offer. I paid $800 about three years ago for this boat, and since purchased four extra batteries as I was using it (with success) on some long sessions. Only got used about a dozen times, as the place I needed it for was 900 miles away so only visited a few times a year. Definitely a great bit of kit, that helped me bag an upper 40 pb when i could not cast 200 yards I still have the original box and foam for safe shipping Let me know if have questions, not all my pics are loading so ill try to get more on later or tomorrow Craig
  8. Apologies for the new profile, could not get into my old one as not been on here for a while. Due to relocation I am looking to shift a lot of bait I still have left so I don't have to move it. Some has 2014-2016 expiration date, but the bait is fine. I have opened a few tins, and even used some myself the past year. Bait an pics attached. Boilies are $8 a kilo, pop ups, particles, and liquids $5 a pot/tin, pellets are $5 a bag. I am happy to negotiate on shipping depending on amount purchased. Or welcome to come to my place in central PA if near enough to collect. PM me any questions you may have, or if want more picsas not all pics uploaded Cheers Craig All unused and unopened Nash Nash coconut crème 2.5 kg x2 bags Nash Tangerine dream 2.5kg x2 bags Nash Tandori Spice 2.5kg x 3 bags Dynamite 24x 1kg bags of spicy peanut 20mm 4x 1kg bags of spicy peanut 26mm 4x 1kg bags of spicy peanut 15mm 3x boosted hookbait dip spicy peanut 4x 15 mm pop ups spicy peanut 5 x liquid attractant spicy peanut Dynamite Coconut cream, prob the best bait I ever used 4x 1kg 26mm coconut crème 1 x 1kg 20mm bag coconut crème 10 x 1kg bags 15mm coconut creme 4 x hookbait dip coconut crème 3 x liquid attractant coconut crème Tigers and hemp, expiration date says 2014, but opened one of each tin and content looks and smells same an normal (see pic) 2x tins of tiger nuts 9x tigers in chilli 4x hemp 10x chilli hemp 10x garlic hemp Dynamite pop ups Robin red 1x 15mm Robin red 1x 10mm Robin red fluro 1x 15mm Robin red /tutti 50/50 wafters 20mm x 1 Strawberry and scopex fluro 15mm x4 Strawberry and scopex fluro 10mm x1 Frank warwick high attract pineapple 15mm x1 Squid and octopus fluro 15mm x 2 Mulberry Florentine fluro 15mm x1 Tutti frutti fluro 15mm x1 Pineapple and banana 15mm fluro x2 Two tone fluro strawberry and coconut crème 15mm x 1 Two tone fluro pineapple plum 15mm x 2 Two tone 20mm squid scopex x1 Two tone tutti pineapple 15mm x1 Two tone tutti pineapple 20mmx 1 Carptech plum 15mm pop ups x 1 Liquids and dips Marine halibut liquid attractant x4 Robin red liquid x 1 Robin red bait dip x 1 Carptech bait dip plum x 1 Carptech bait dip tutti x 2 Carptech liquid plum x 2 Carptech liquid tutti x 3 Betain liquid x 1 XL liquids Liquid tutti x 5 Liquid halibut x 1 Liquid pineapple x 5 Liquid strawberry x 2 Liquid scopex x 7 Pellets Robin red drilled 20mm x 8 Robin red drilled 15mm x 4 6mm krill pellets x 4 8mm krill pellets x 5

    B.A.S.S. Industry's reaction to carping

    Bass fishing brings in a ton of $$$$$ to the local economy. Consider that a tournament participant will require: licenses, motel, meals, gas for boat and tow vehicle, tackle (some furnished by sponsor or bought locally). Plus, there is the $$$$ spent by the people who attend the weigh-in or hang out during the tournament before the weigh-in. Dayton, TN is touting itself as the bass capital of the South. They have had several tournaments there on Lake Chickamauga. One tourney had about 500 boats. The boats had to be launched at Dayton and Harrison Bay State Park. FWIW, my son works in Dayton and said the tournaments cause traffic problems and the restaurants are packed. Edit- Lake Chickamauga has been pounded ever since the state record largemouth bass was caught there.

    Nope. I spelled it correctly. I wasn't referring to the well known Latin phrase but rather my own loose interpretation of Latin for 'argument of the day'. Admittedly, I just wanted an eye catching title to gain interest. Sue me. I digress. Here in Pacific NW like other regions, there has been a growing number of of fellow carp fisherman over the last decade, my self included. To wit, a claim supported by this seemingly obscure web forum, in contrast to the numerous other forums of those who pursue finned quarry. I've fished in Oregon, Alaska, and Washington most of my life. Until of recent, I only ever had a vague awareness of carp(as game) aside from my brother's pragmatic objective. We used to operate a small commercial crayfish operation that started in Western Oregon and ultimately found our way to The Snake River in the eastern part of the state. It was there he began using a bow and arrow to harvest them as bait for our traps which we found to be superior to everything else we had experimented with. I am most curious why fishing for them has been so slow to gain interest with the general population here and began to suspect that finacial interests had influence, as it does in many conundrums. Here in the northwest, when one hears "fishing" it's salmon, steelhead, or trout that comes to mind. Unsurprisingly, our local fish and wildlife agencies invest a corresponding amount of their funds to support those interests. Are those decisions merely following public demand? I'm suspiciously wondering if more is at play. Bass fishing here has been relatively slow to develop in contrast to the rest of the nation. This year our state agency made an unprecedented decision to plant a sizable number of smallmouth bass in the lakes of western washington and possibly elswhere in the state. I was surprised by this because I hadn't been aware of any deficiencies in the bass population and was curious why the agency spent millions on the project and promotion. They even went so far as tagging over a thousand of them. The tag of which may be redeemed for small prize from local sporting goods vendors. Casual observation reveals the relatively new practice of private marketing found within many federal agency publications and state fish and wildlife regulation publications are no exception. Advertising more often comes with obvious and sometimes not so obvious bias and perhaps hidden agendas. Am I reading to far to this? Perhaps, but even so a little research reveals some astonishing facts about the game fishing industry that may support my speculation. Many are probably aware of these statistics but I'm certain there are at last a few that will share my surprise. I discovered some interesting figures with regard to the annual revenues earned from the sports and recreation industry. I'll summarize an article by James Hall published in the online publication of Bassmaster and reference he made to a study performed by Southwick Associates. Below are are some annual revenue figures quoted in that article: NFL- $13 billion MLB- $9.5 billion NBA- $5.2 billion ... drum roll please... BASS Fishing- $16 billion ?!!! Mind you, that figure does not correspond to all game fishing, just Bass Fishing revenue most of which(77%) are from artificial lures purchased for fishing Bass! I myself spent at least $20 on lures for bass this year and I only made about 5 casts before hearing the commotion from rod behind me, my first carp. Staggering is it not? The figures that is, not the fact I was multitasking. Here is the link to that article in addition to another that may be of pertinent interest: https://www.bassmaster.com/james-hall/proudly-showing-our-age https://www.bassmaster.com/news/anglers-spend-16-billion-year-fishing Upon learning more about this, an observation plaguing thought entered my mind. Our state fish and wildlife agency, associated publications, and regulations revealed some interesting findings. The publication for fishing regulations has all but buried information related to carp fishing. The word "carp" appears only 3 times, which I estimate is less than one half of a percent in contrast to all other species combined. Of particular interest to me was the fact that Common Carp are THE only species that are completely unregulated in the state. That is, there is no limit to the amount an individual may catch, residents, and non-residents alike are NOT even required to obtain a fishing license for them. I take that back. There is but one regulation that I found in the publication- Common Carp retained, must be dead prior to leaving the riparian area. Why is this? They are not considered an invasive species by the agency and can be found in almost every lake and river in the nation. A little more digging(I mean digging) on the agency's website found "We encourage fishing for them." I hardly see an effort there. Why is their 'encouragement' so profoundly obscure? Several residents and sporting goods retailers were amazed at my findings. They questioned my claim regarding the unnecessary fishing license, catch limits, etc. A typical reaction from my reply to "What are you fishing for?" ranges between surprise and disgust, usually more in direction of the latter. This is typically followed by the common comments and misperceptions that I too once shared. My questions for members are these: What are your own local regulations regarding the Common Carp in particular? As we probably know that species was purposely introduced as a food source to serve an ever growing population, circa 1877 I believe. What share of encouragement do your local agencies publicize regarding fishing for carp? And of pertinence, what amount if any do your local agencies publish advertising for private interests related to Bass fishing? What other incongruous observations have you made related to local wildlife agency regulations, spending, programs, promotions, and public awareness campaigns? What are local opinions regarding the Common Carp? Finally, what are your own findings, insights, and opinions regarding these issues. Please pardon any errors, oversights, or transgressions made herein. I shall humbly make corrections and edit this post where necessary. Disclaimer- I know this may appear to be the rantings of another conspiracy theorist. Still one cant deny the correlations are of interest or at least moderately perplexing. Besides its been said that paranoia is not always an irrational fear. Just saying... 😉

    Thank you sir! I will look into the show. I'd love to see the show. Perhaps its available for viewing on the web. It was quite likely Spokane Lake but it is quite polluted in those waters and I prefer to eat my catch. I can't imagine what it would be like to hook one of these on a flyrod, even a sufficiently sized rod. I was really impressed how strong a 7 lb. carp could be. I can certainly see why carping has developed a following here. ...way behind east, south, and midwest as usual.

    Interesting. Looks like a quality build and a great price for a custom rod. A couple of years ago, I contacted Harrison about building on their blanks and never heard from them.

    Welcome! Jim and Kelly Watt had a TV show, Fly Fishing Video several years ago. They were fly fishing for carp in the shallows like fishing for bonefish. The lake was somewhere in eastern Washington state but they didn't say where.
