    Are Boilies Overrated

    thanks John!..........(always love your videos!!).......I did use the commercial cork balls, but can't any small enough to make it practical I either had to put too much on to hold, or too little and it cracked off ..... hadn't used a commercial pop-up mix.....do you have suggestions? I chopped up some cork stoppers (I don't drink though ) and it Thanksdidn't work...... hadn't tried a cork insert-that may be the best!!!....and yeah, probably not using enough cork...... Thanks!!!...........

    Well, with 1 day to go, and fishing being terrible, I managed my last couple fish to break 1,000lbs for the CAG tournament!-this last 11lbr yesterday came with temps in the mid 90s and no wind!......one hit, one fish on a homemade boilie which made it even more special!!!............91 fish, 1,006 lbs for an average of 11lbs/fish!!!.....my personal bests, as well as about a dozen grass carp with my personal best of 46-13!!......especially after a disastrous week of losing gear, tennis shoe soles, a rod (left unintentionally for the next angler (:)- fortunately not a carp rod, tackle, an isolite from my bobbin, 5 swims in 36 hours, 3 hours apart, etc. etc.....may even try tonight........great tournament!- who else can say that the top ten finishers of a freshwater tournament averaged 25lbs for 4 fish!!!!!!!- no-one- Congrats to all!!!!
  6. Congrats John!......that is a beauty!!!!!, and Congrats to Ron!- that's a nice looker as well!!!.................always love your videos!

    Are Boilies Overrated

    well, because of this topic, I did my own little test the past 3 nights. One pole- home made boilie (wheat, strawberry, egg, flour and creamed corn balls, then boiled) vs 2 poles (identical poles, reels and cast distance- I usually keep my lines pretty close together) pack bait of panko/strawberry/birdseed and sweet corn.........and........ the past two nights EVERY fish (2 grass carp, 3 commons, 5 catfish) all came on the boilie!......try as I might though I cannot get my homemade boilies to float!- I did the microwave trick, but while a couple may float for a bot, they all sink within several minutes....I added cork pieces to some and it doesn't float either- thoughts/suggestions?- I've looked through most videos about making them.................

    *To clarify...this thread does say post your pictures here ...... WOW!!!, what a session, and at a new swim!- Went to a lake about an hour away two nights ago where I heard there are monster carp (I go pretty much on any goose chase ya know!:).....well, no giants, BUT, in 11 hours, I caught 26, yep 26 carp and lost 2. Fish were anywhere from 2lb 3oz to 21lbs! (which gained me a pound in the Big Four.)....Very strong fish- fought to the level of creek fish....Alas, no monsters, or even evidence of such....I had two triples and two doubles!!!!!....the action was so good, I went from 3 poles to 2 -too difficult to manage singly....and through all that, didn't lose one rig!!!!.......what was to be a 4-6 hour session went to a near 12 hour just cause it was so much fun, and not another fisherman!..........., now, to find a larger fish venue.......hmmmmmm.....Good talent all!!.(cause sometimes it is talent and not luck ya know!........so.......8-15, 13-2, 9-0, 10-14, 10-0, 13-8, 11-5, 10-6 (1st triple), 11-4, 13-2, 13-2, 16-0, 2-3, 13-5, 9-7 (second triple), 21-0, 11-9, 11-9, 14-0, 15-8, 12-1, 2-6, 10-3, 13-5, 11-15, and 7-7..............still recovering as had to go to work in the morning!!!

    so....haven't had a s much time to fish, and working all though the holiday, BUT was able to do some night fishin last night, and it was the worst start ever!!!!... EVER!!!-hooked large fish ( likely grass carp) within 10 minutes of starting and LOST IT and the rig!....Ugghhhh, then 3 straight hook-ups, and LOST THREE Straight fish and rigs/parts thereof!!- so....fish 4, MOCarper 0 and 4 lost rigs......when it couldn't get worse, I reeled in to re-bait, and didn't know I had another fish!- it exploded away and broke the hair....I dont swear, but this made it very close! @#$*!!!!.......With 25 minutes left until the park closed.........I doubled!!!- I already packed net, sling, pad, lights, etc......so landed both without snaring the third line, weighed, released, packed up again and left with 4 minutes left til the gates closed!!......8-9, and 11-4.........................woah!!!..........what a night!!!

    So......my average is up this year, but the numbers are lower and just not finding a consistent large fish venue......though I am also not locked into 18mm boilies, tiger nuts, etc. (yet)......Have run a lot of fish recently, topped by this 21-8 yesterday, several teens, but also a 1 and 2lbr-bodes well for the lake in the future-seen more larger fish than smaller!!!...So, 21-8, 12, 11-8, 16-11, 16-11, 16-2, 2-0 10-8, 12-9, 1-0, 14lbs.....lost some rigs and had my first hook pull of the year!.....aghhhh, but always fun!!!!,,,,
