Andrzej he is not fussy both will do...at the same time lol....My mate had a 2lb14oz Perch a couple of weekends back from the bit where we bumped into you on the Canal...fat as butter and not spawned then but guessing this recent warm spell will have changed that Steve
It's probably a good idea to purge them in clean water for 24 hrs before doing anything with them. If you don't, you'll be cooking them with their guts full of dead rats, fish and bacteria. Also If you are going to make a trap make the entrance less than 95mm so Otters can't get in
Please don't mention Otters those and Beavers are going to be the new cormorants We have tons and I mean tons of Cray fish around here and as far as fishing for them goes everyone including the EA turns a blind eye, as long as catching them is carried out discreetley. The red clawed bast**ds have eaten everything in the canal, Colne and Gade.
I am not even that sure that the Chub,Pike and Pike are eating them either.
Just watched an old episode of Thinking Tackle. set out in France with Big Fat horrible looking carp. They were saying loads of Cray Fish in the lake eating their bait Any way that made me think surley carp must eat the bl**dy things, well lets hope.
I have cauht Pikeof SP cray fish patterns but I thought the were just going for a moving target rather than think yummy a crayfish.
I have twiched, crawled, jigged, hopped, jerked and cranked SP Crayfish for years and have never had as much as a follow . I know others do well on them, but I just dont seem to have what it takes . Saying that I had the same problem when I started using Sliders and now they are one of my Banker lures .
