Brace of thirties for Jerry

Posted in Catch Reports on 26th May 2014

Jerry Mills from Bridgwater had never been fortunate enough to catch a thirty pound carp until recently, but when he did, he caught two on the trot!! Jerry, decided to fish an overnighter on a local syndicate water where he introduced a kilo of Shellfish B5 frozen boilies to a marginal spot no more than 3-yards from the bank.

Within an hour of fishing Jerry's rod ripped off and after a hectic battle, he banked a lovely 30lb 12oz common. Absolutely elated with his capture Jerry then put the rod back out, but little did he know only a matter of hours would pass before he was doing battle with another big fish! This one turned out to be a 31lb mirror!

Two personal bests in the matter of hours. Top B5 Bombing Jerry and huge congratulations - 'Fat Boys' rule okay....

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.
