Timar mix Mango and Melon method pellet box

The method pellet box contains high-quality micropellets, which, due to their high content, serve as a real treat for fish. The box also contains the liquid aroma needed for pellets and spreads extremely fast, even in cold waters, and certainly attracts the attention of fish that feed in the area. The box contains + 50 ml of liquid and pellets 7-9 mm.

When I opened the box it smelled nicely of the fruity aroma of mango and melon. I have never used this product before and i think it will be interesting for fish.

I poured the pellets with liquid and left them to soak for about 20 minutes. My camera recorded a blurry video unfortunately I couldn’t post photos with the whole feeder system. So I will present my feeder fishing system in the next blog (with a different pellet flavor).

For bait I used sweet corn (tortilia mix can in which I added a pinch of salt befor fishing). With the hook pellets added in the box I had no success so I preferred to fish with sweet corn. I will use pellets on my next fishing.



The biggest carp of the day









Evening is approaching

Towards the end of the fishing there were some pellets left in the box. For the next fishing I will store them in the fridge.

The end of today’s fishing.

Till next time …

…… tight lines and wet nets!

Conclusion

You may be wondering why I would buy a bucket, since the bucket we have left when we buy various merchandise (wall paints, rice, sugar, etc.) also serves its purpose. Of course it serves its purpose – at home, but when I go fishing I want to blend in with the surroundings as much as possible. This is impossible to achieve with white, yellow, red or similar bright colors of the bucket. The tastes for the colors are of course different.

Ridge Monkey Compact Bucket System is very practical in my opinion, as you can carry a small amount of different baits with you on a short fishing trip and of course the possibility of using this bucket also depends on your way of fishing.

I recommend the bucket especially to those who use pva products when fishing, mainly because of the three sections in which you can put different bait for pva.

My first fishing reel of Penn was Spinfisher V 4500. I used it for different types of fishing (carp fishing, spinning, float fishing, winter fishing, …). This reel was great for all techniques, never disappointed me (strong, reliable, smooth running).

Unfortunately, an unlucky event happened one night when I went to the night carp fishing with my Penn Spinnfisher V 4500…………………………… 🙁 .

………………………… my older carp bite alarm broke down that night and no longer emitted sound when fish took my bait. So unfortunately i lost my carp fishing rod and my Penn Spinnfisher V 4500 that night when I slept in the tent. With the other fishing rod I just found out of water a lost monofilament (left over from the escaped fish) with fishing hook from my Penn, . Both are probably now in the depths of this lake or maybe some lucky angler caught my lost fishing gear on the hook. Who would know?

After that unlucky event it was necessary to buy another reel. I bought a cheaper reel as my previous Penn from another brand because of mine small budged. However, I was not satisfied whit it, so I finally saved up for a new one Penn Spinnfisher.

A new generation of Penn Spinfisher came on the market this year, and so I decided to buy Penn Spinnfisher VI 4500.

Which rig to use to make fishing successful? My personal opinion is the rig I confidencet the most. I know this is quite challenging for beginners, as we need experience to get that feeling and knowledge.

Today there are quite a lot of different rigs that can be learned through the Internet, fishing magazines, fishing friends, fishing shops, … We can also buy ready tied rigs if we do not want to make our own.

With photos I will show below the step by step tying simple carp rig. This is my way of tying rig that I use successfully.



Step 1: Rig Components

We just need to get started tying our own carp rigs: hook (barbed or barbless), swivel, anti tangle sleeve, hook link (braid, fluorocarbon or mono), hair boilie stopper, bait (boilie, corn, tiger nuts, …) and boilie baiting needle.

Step 2: Put Boilie on a Hair

Make a loop of suitable length (longer loop for larger boilies) for the boilies.

Insert boilies with a needle.



We add boilie stoppers.

The knot on the loop also serves as a stopper to prevent the boilies from approaching the hook.

Step 3: The Knotless Knot rig

4x to 8x around the hook (depending on the hook size).



Step 4: The last step

Before I make the last knot I add anti tangle sleeve.



The knot on the swivel I use is Grinner knot (2x around the ear). A very strong knot that has never disappointed me. But of course you can use any knot you want.

5x to 8x around the link (depending on the thickness).

Always moisten the link before completing the knot.

Final we add to the swivel anti tangle sleeve ………

……….and we’re ready to go fishing

Where to go for a one-day afternoon trip?

We decided to go to Logar Valley. We went to see the Savinja river, which has long been on my wishlist. This time without fishing gear. We took our camera as part of the mandatory equipment.

We visited the part of Savinja that is managed by Fishing Family Ljubno.

I am attaching a link to their website: http://www.rd-ljubno.si/en

We visited their fishing district Savinja 3 + Catch and Release. I am attaching a link to this district (unfortunately only in Slovenian language) : http://www.rd-ljubno.si/revirji/savinja_3

  • The path leads to the river Savinja.

Video Savinja RIver (Fishing Club Ljubno) – Fly fishing paradise on my YouTube channel, to watch the video click below 👇👇👇👇👇👇👇👇👇👇:


  • Even without fishing gear, it was a pleasure to watch trophy trout.


  • Beautiful nature.
  • They enjoy duck life.


  • Large number of trout.


  • Clean river and big trout. The true beauty of nature.
  • A huge shadow of a large trout.


  • I found these fly between the stone. How a fly angler lost it is probably the fault of one of the giants in this river.
  • Waiting for lunch…
  • Amazing how many trophy trout are in one place.


They have a very nice fly fishing pond, designed especially for beginner fishermen to train their fly casting.

In the pond, we can mainly catch brown trout and rainbow trout. We can also catch danube salmon, chub, carp, common nase, grayling and pike during fly fishing.

Larger fish are also stocking in the pond, therefore, trophy specimens are also found in the pond.

Next to the pond is a fishing lodge with great food.

  • A pier where we can observe nature and aquatic life.
  • The nature around the pond is wonderful….
  • They are hiding under the pier.
  • The pike is waiting for its prey.

Final words

Clean river, big trout, unspoiled nature, mountains, friendly locals and much more that Logar Valley has to offer. I made many pleasant impressions during the short time that I have been here.

The only thing I really want to do is fly on this beautiful river. This wish will be fulfilled once in the future (maybe next year) when I will be financially able enough to visit this river with a fly rod in my hand. Until then, with the camera in my hand, I will be photographing and filming this beautiful river with big fish in it.

I have often read the topic on the internet if it is possible to catch a carp with a waggler on a hair rig for carp fishing. In fact, it is very similar to carp fishing, except that they are much easier to use instead of heavy lead and that a waggler serves as the bite indicator.

We can use the same carp rigs as for heavy lead bottom carp fishing. I use hooks from size 6 up for this fishing technique, depending on the average size of the carp in the lake.

For bait I use smaller diameters of boilies (8mm to 14 mm), pop up, corn (maize, sweetcorn), artificial – fake bait or hook pellets.


  • Ceady for the first cast.
  • Average catch on this lake.

You can also watch a short movie bellow:



Most often I use particles mix for baiting my fishing spot. I feed with a small amount of particles every 20 minutes with small baiting spoon. When I catch a fish I increase the 3x amount of particle for baiting fishing spot.

  • With the right tactics and some fishing luck :), bigger carp can be caught.


  • See you sometime in the future.

On the old gravel pit where I usually fish for carp I decided to try my luck at catching a tench. sSunny weather was forecast that day with possible afternoon thunderstorms Maybe I catch one 🙏?

I chose my fishing spot in front of the water lilies, where I noticed fish activity.

Tactics

I used mixed fish (corn, tigernuts, wheat, hemp), boilies, pellets and ground bait to attract tench.

I bait regular the fishing spot every 20-30minutes, but in smaller quantities. I did not want to use too much bait for day fishing because the fish would be overeating and probably would not be successful.

I used two smaller sized boilies (10mm) for the bait and the hook number 8.



Fish on…..

I noticed a tench jump from the water near my fishing spot. About 15 minutes later my bite alarm started to scream. I quickly went to the fishing rod and already felt that there was probably tench on the hook. Shortly after, the tench was already on the unhooking mat.

After a quick photo and use of antiseptic I release it back into the lake.

After a long time, i finally caught the tench. I was very happy.

Water from the lake to keep the fish wet.

Just a little bit…………..

………and tench was already swimming back in the lake.

Bye bye beauty :).

Successful day for me 🙂

But there may still be some bite……………..

……………….black clouds were coming from far away and the forecast was not promising. I barely managed to put fishing gear in the car when it started to rain very heavily.

Despite the storm, a very great day was spent by the lake with my darling.

Hmmmmmm… Which fishing cradle to buy was a big question for me. I was looking for one that would be low and long for bigger fish like grass carp and carp.

I’ve only used a unhooking mat in recent years, but since the rules at the lakes are changing (which I really like) it was time to buy a cradle.

And finally…. I found a Fox Carpmaster Cradle XL on the internet that came on the market this year. There are two sizes available: standard and XL.

After some thought, I decided to buy one. My choice was the Fox Carpmaster Cradle XL version.

Big care for Bigger fish

On the first fishing trip with this cradle I took a picture of it.

So far, I am very excited about it and it has proven to be more than excellent and worth buying despite its high price (around 170€).

Supplied in large, heavy-duty 500Denier carry bag .

Leg-lock mechanism.
Four adjustable legs to level use on uneven ground.

Happy days 🙂

Always carrying a lot of heavy equipment with me, even on short fishing trips, I decided to buy a lighter and smaller rod below the one I have. I know the easiest choice is banstick, but it is very difficult to get stuck on hard ground (rocks, concrete,…).

I was looking for a black colored rod pod, low height of any mark that would fall into my eyes. After some searching time, I was shortlisted under Fox Stalker A + (Amazon affiliate link), which I eventually bought.

2. Finally i have it

The first impression was very good. Even when opening the box, I was very surprised by his appearance.



3. Rod pod size

Rod pod is very easy and quick to assemble when it becomes routine in about 2-4 minutes. Rod pod is the lowest at 23 cm in height and can be increased to 42.5 cm. Rod pod has the lowest at 23 cm in height and can be increased to 42.5 cm. The minimum length is only 69 cm long and can be extended to a maximum length of 106 cm.



4. A small toy for the big ones

The only doubt I had with this rod pod was that it could be carried away by smaller fish or a little stronger wind. But to me it never happened even though I was fishing very close range or with a much tighter reel.

For greater stability, you can purchase specially made anchors for this rod pod.
