Sweetcorn is one of my favourite baits for carp, you can hook it, hair rig it, spod it and... even eat it yourself!
What did you catch mate?

That's a beautiful bird...

Oh I assumed you were fishing for F1s (Hybrids of Crucian and Common Carp) because they can't breed they feed all throughout the year, otherwise you may as well fish for predators!

I've been fishing for over 4 year snow and I still haven't netted a Perch! I want one dammit!


BTW hybrids of any kind can't breed, they have defective gametes. They call them F1 carp because they're the first generation, they only cross breed them once. To be honest I'm opposed to the practice myself, I won't name any names but I've fished at some of England's most renowned commercial fisheries and frankly I don't think they could give less of a **** about their fish.

Like every fisherman I enjoy bagging up on a day, but not to the detriment of the fish's welfare - unfortunately bloated, floating doubles are not a rare sight at most of our heavily overstocked commercial fisheries...

what u mean you've never had a perch ????? the'll eat almost anything, almost all the time lol. is you a dedicated Carp / big fish man ?... iv been fishing for around the 30 year mark ish, Carp fishin and commercials where not popular back then and the Perch was one of the first fish all new fishermen caught. Perch disease did destroy their population but they are abundant again now..... tell you what i havent caught for YEARS and thats an eel. They used to be a pain in the ... if you tried fishing maggot on the bottom. Now you just dont see em. Put years in capitals because it has been years since iv caught an eel.
