    Recently on the Forum, somebody started a thread titled " flavors" that had me thinking a lot about it.  The member started the post by asking what were some of the flavors that people preferred at certain times of the year.  it didn't take long for members from all over the country to list their top choices. I wont bore you with all the responses but there were manyyyyyyy.  My point is that everything catches carp at some point. By everything, I mean reasonable flavors .... peach, pineapple, fruity, halibut, vanilla etc... And.... hook baits are the same.  Maize, Sweetcorn, boilies, imitations, chickpeas, puffs.  I know this is nothing new here but  in my opinion... use what works for you at that given time.  Use what you have.  Don't go chasing the belief that Crayfish Boilies made by XYZ Bait Co. is the best in summer or whiskey flavored maize out fishes everything in the Fall.  It just aint so....   Confidence is the key and presentation for sure.   Carp fishing can be as hard or as easy as you wish to make it. 


  2. Brian,

    Thanks for sharing that link.  Great tips for sure.  I have always felt that just knowing a few basic tips regarding photography greatly enhances most shots.  I started paying better attention to sunlight and backgrounds a few years back and I believe my photos have gotten much better.  Something so simple as having your subject remove their baseball cap before posing with a fish makes all the difference.   Good Stuff..   Thanks again.



  3. Dear CF,

    Ive missed so much in the last two weeks.  I have been thinking about you a lot.  I have been checking online everyday and night since you left, wondering if you were ever going to come back.  I realize now,that I may not have been the best member at times and I'm sorry that I may have taken you for granted.  But now that you are back,  things are going to change!    I promise!   Please! don't ever leave me again.


    P.S.  You may hear some rumors about me visiting something called Facebook and YouTube a lot while you were gone, but I promise that is over now .  Welcome Back! 

    P.S.S.   You look really good too!

  4. Kudos to Iain Sorrell and Co.with the great job they did hosting the On The Water TV crew on the CT. river.   Great Job!  I thoroughly enjoyed the show.     Its really nice to see the On The Water program doing these carp shows.  Last year it was Dave Pickering hosting them in Rhode Island for some Mirror carp and now Iain doing it in Conn.   Way to go guys!! 

  5. I had an interesting experience with boats this past season that really surprised me. A friend and I were fishing a popular urban river here in New England that hardly sees any motor boat activity. A few kayaks now and then but rarely a motor. Long story short....

    The local Fire Dept, was conducting training this summer evening and every 15 mins or so , they were quickly buzzing right through the middle of the river directly over our baits with a small 14ft. V-Hull. The river is not big (wide or deep) by any means and we could see and smell the bottom of the river churning up every time they came by. The funny part was that we caught 3 fish that evening and all were runs that happened within one minute of the boat going over the baits. This happened 3 times in a row. If I was not there to witness this , I would not have believed it. It was to the point that we were waiting / wanting the boat to go by so we could get more runs..

    Full Disclosure: My friend Tom had all 3 runs and all 3 catches. My rods were silent. We were fishing side by side and using the same bait.

  6. Boiled field corn will keep reasonably well for a few weeks. (3-4 weeks). keeping cool/cold is better. Outside in the fall is good. Even when it starts to get a little mold on it , I just rinse it in the bucket and pour out the nasty water and your good to go again. It really takes a good long while before its really unusable. IMO. Just start with smaller batches at first. Good luck

  7. I just thought of another positive of using these products....... If you're a hunter, there is a decent chance that while you are waiting for carp to bite in your swim, an 8point might pay you a visit. lol Now wouldn't that be funny.....?
