Catch Reports

New forty for Rich!

Posted in Catch Reports on 28th October 2013

Fresh off the press today is a catch report from Richard Kelly who has banked yet another forty on the B5, just weeks after his fishing partner Andy 'Whacker catcher' Waller banked a 48lb 2oz mirror from the same venue (see Andy's picture also below).

Andy's '48' has only been out twice this season and both times it fell to the B5! Richard's latest specimen weighed in at 41lbs and is a new forty for the venue. Further proof that the fish have been 'troughing' the B5 this autumn as they prepare for the coming winter.

These two guys really do catch a consistent amount of big carp and the B5 has proved phenomenally successful for them. Well done guys from all the Essential crewe.

Good quality food baits

I can't begin to stress the importance of using a high quality food bait when it comes to catching carp on a regular basis. A bait formulated with nutritional ingredients will be sending out food signals long after the liquid attractors have been dispersed, this due to the fact that the ingredients themselves will be breaking down and sending out messages of food into the surrounding water.

Cheaper baits that have little or no nutritional value might sound more attractive on the pocket, but they will cost you dearly when it comes to producing the goods. Once any liquid attractors have dispersed, the bait will not be sending out any food signals at all, but further to this, will have no nutritional benefit whatsoever.

Carp, like all other fish, soon learn to recognise a food source and will continue to eat it again and again if it provides them with a sense of nutritional satisfaction. They have the ability to detect a nutritional food source prior to consumption (food signals coming from the bait) and after ingestion. With this in mind, we have developed what we believe to be the highest quality range of nutritional food baits available, and the success of the B5 alone has certainly gone some way to proving this.
