Here’s his comments;
“I varied my tactics throughout the week. I started off on a single quality baits 18mil hg42 cast onto a bed of bait around 100 yards in open water. The carp became wise to this so i spread a bed of quality baits hg42 18mil boilies with a throwing stick over quite a large area and pva bagged 6 crumbed boilies with a bottom baits in the middle of the area. This method produced most fish. I used around 18 kilo of boilies to keep the fish interested.
At the beginning of the week the crayfish were very active and it was a case of fishing the deeper waters in the middle of the lake to avoid them. As the week went on they seemed to become less active and i was able to explore some of the margins and pick up the extra fish.
Boux will become one of angling lines premier waters and i am sure it will be fully booked in the near future. If you are planning on fishing boux i would book early as there will be a lot of disappointed anglers that miss the opportunity to get onto this magnificent big fish water.”
