  1. Bulk Ring Swivels?

    Obviously spending money on 10 Ring Swivels from Korda is pretty expensive. I noticed on eBay that they sell Ring Swivels in bulk for very cheap. I'm considering buying some, but I have NO way of trusting these products from China or on eBay, and no gaurantee if these Swivels were made in someone's ditch in their back yard, and if they are as strong as they are supposed to be. Just seeing what you guys' thoughts are on those Swivels and what you all use. I greatly appreciate all the help you guys have and continue to provide. I know a lot of guys buy those cheap Chinese braided fishing lines on eBay and swear by them. That's a part of my fishing setup that I just CANNOT COMPRIMISE on. If that line turns out to be crap, and I lose a big fish on it, there is no REAL customer service that can help you out with that. At least I can call Suffix, Power pro, or Cortland if I have problem.

  4. First Unhooking Mat

    I am now proud to say that I am an owner of a Carp Unhooking Mat. Nothing special, not expensive, but a step forward for myself in treating Carp with greater care. It's a Fox Specialist that I bought from BCT for $30.

  10. Solid Budget Bite Alarm?

    I have never owned any Beeper Alarms for my Carp fishing before, but am now looking for some now. These will be my first ones, so I'm not looking to break the bank. What would be a great beginner bite alarm set I could by? Thankyou, Ray

  12. Octopus Circle Hooks

    Great posts guys! I was looking for a thank or like button but didn't see one.
  13. Octopus Circle Hooks

    I use Gamakatsu Octopus Circle hooks all the time when Channel Cat fishing. And each year, I'll accidentally catch a good number of carp and suckers while I'm targeting the Catfish. Im normally using a 3/0 Gama when I do. This still hasn't convinced me to start using circle hooks for carp fishing. I just have more confidence in the rigs Im using now for carp, to even think of changing. This year I may set up two rods with my classic carp rigs, then setup a 3rd rod with a circle hook. It wouldn't hurt. I can just see what happens. My guess though is, that a circle hook wouldnt be able to consistnently hook as many carp as a classic carp rig. But that's just me guessing.?
