  1. Austin,Brendan, Carl & Alex, fantastic filming lad,s of four dedicated carp Anglers and a friendship that will last for years to come! Thanks for posting Jerome......
  2. You are in a good place where you are, when I can, I will go to Decatur and fish the TN river or fish at Ditto,s Landing on highway 231 or Guntersville Lake, Weiss Lake, Gadsden, lots of places, you just need to explore the area for a day or two and you should be able to find a good place.
  3. Everybody has there own way of preparing corn! I am just meticulous when it comes to preparing seeds and pulses that fish will eat (safety factor), the reason for soaking and absorbing liquid in my two favorites (corn & chick peas) before the boil is, I want as much flavor to be soaked up as possible in my initial preparation and when they start to take on the re-hydration stage, usually I will leave the corn in a sealed container for maybe a few weeks so it will start the fermenting process and it will get the added flavours, sugars plus the liquor smell, which is also a good carp attractor, then I will do a boil (I will add Rock Salt at this stage), my quantities are maybe 15gal which then will go into the chest freezer until I go fishing, on defrosting from the freezer more fluids will be soaked back into the corn. As you quite rightly said, batch size is totally up to the individual and how much they make and use per session!
  4. Don't bother with frozen corn, most of that stuff will float, go to your local feed store or academy, walmart, get some cleaned deer corn, put it in a 5gal bucket about half way then top up with water, at this stage add flavouring, put the lid on and leave to soak up the water for about 12hr, after the corn has swollen fully take out of the bucket and boil for about 20 to 30minutes, then chum away......
  5. It's a Koi or a gold fish, the gene pool at that particular lake can grow some real insane looking fish, nice fish Dave!
  6. The only time I have seen this happen to a rod spigot, is when an angler was casting from underneath a tree with a 2oz lead and caught his top section on a tree limb, the foward motion force and the arc of the rod under load caused the spigot to snap. I myself have qty-3, 12ft 3lb/tc Fox warrior rods and have had them for more than 5 years and literally have put them through the test of carp fishing and have never let me down whatsoever, I can only say that there may of been an underlying issue, maybe a hairline Crack that was not visible within the material!
  7. The very best of luck to the team......
