POP UPS AND SILLY CARP.

Post by HAPPYANGLERALEX on Fri Jan 11, 2013 8:13 pm

HI,

one of the best ways of knowing carps feeding ways ie. boilie into mouth and then self hooked, is to study underwater vids of carp feeding. [YouTube]

After a while it will be come apparently obvious that for every bleep at rod, many many times the carp either disregards the bait or flicks it, side swipes it, fans it, head butts it, or picks it up, moves it around its mouth, and spits it out, and the carper on the bank never even knows it has happened, except for the odd bleep. "[bet that was a line bite]"

We can watch them clear a bed of bait leaving the hook bait alone, for whatever reason, suspicion, does not look natural, shiny hook and swivel and line, perhaps even the hook being magnetized, does not lay like the free ones, mouth the bait, feels the foreign body, and rejects it, and the carper on the bank is unaware.

So what sort of silly carp will go for this below?

put it this way, if you found this in your takeaway, what would you do?

watching the underwater vids, I cannot agree with that, so most carp are caught on that? unless there is a English how and what carp were caught on that rig, leader board, its only speculation.

it looks very crude to me, not very well thought out, or presented, and unnatural, absolutely no attempt to "blend in" just raw presentation. Rolling Eyes

I think a chod rig, can be a bit more sophisticated than the one in the pic.

If most carp are caught on that rig, they must be mugs. Very Happy

Only my opinion.

To be honest i've never seen a carp study a rig for its subtlety but then i don't watch the underwater dvd's, the way i see it is they either take it or they don't.
Having used the hinged stiff rig for many years i would agree it is probably the most unnatural, blatant or crude looking rig you can lay your eyes on especially when its attached to 3ft of leadcore but in my opinion it is an extremely effective rig (especially when using single hookbaits).

Looking at the videos which show carp feeding on and rejecting baits, I can't help feeling that the old school twitcher hitters were actually on to something, in that they were responding to the speed of the takes and rejections. In other words, the twitcher hitters were attuned to the way in which carp appear to feed, naturally, at least where small to medium-sized baits are concerned.
A float, down the side, obviously offers great advantages too. These just are my hunches..just saying...
