I've binned my microcat, rods reals and all my gear now. I've decided to become a carp tickler. I hear it works well on trout so thought I'd have a go at catching carp this way. Not having much luck with my tickling stick at the moment, doesn't work so well under water. Any tips anyone?

Better still, with the RC mini sub camera, locate the fish you want, stun it with the patent Korda Carp stunner, drag the bugger back to shore, net it, weigh it and once it recovers bung it back. No need for rods, reels, bait , hooks etc etc. People scoff at technology but there's a lot you can do with it! Or you could harpoon, but that would just be silly!

Or really cut out the middle man... as we all fish catch and release, just leave the carp in the water and throw bait in with no hooks. Never have to worry about break offs, getting caught in snags or being bothered by 'nuisance fish' ever again...

Or just cut out the middle man and have the little arm grab the carp and drag it to the bank for you.

How about a modified RC submersible camera submarine with a tiny grab arm to carry the hook and bait. Great for locating clear spots that can't be easily located from the bank. Brilliant!!

For some people the issue is as simple as do you use a boat or not. Bait boats have been around for a long time - I remember seeing them used in the early '80s and i'm sure they were used before that.

However, what do you define as a bait boat ? Something that can place your rig and some freebies in a spot you navigate it too using a remote control, or something that includes a sonar, camera, GPS and navigation control ?

The last 10 years or so has seen a lot of "additions" available for boats, technology that can put your rig on a particular spot that only requires you to load the boat - you don't even have to have the skill of operating the remote control to navigate it to the spot, key in coordinates (or click on a map) and off it goes. Where do people draw the line with technology ?

And - as this thread is about boats, I won't mention the whole other can of worms brewing on that other technological "advance" - drones Ö

Casting isn't difficult...casting accurately can be though!

The only skill it removes is casting, which isn't exactly rocket science to start with.

wow!

Most bait boat users can cast... agree, impossible to know.
I own a bait boat and consider myself a good caster. Bait boats are abit of a pain in the arse, itís much easier just to cast out.
But without repeating myself on posts below I use them when required. As Iíve said below I fish a lot in the Lake District. Itís a 3 hour drive one way for me so if I turn up and all the swims that are fishable with a cast able range are taken and I have to fish say a spot where the drop off is 100 yards, in a cross wind with a whole joey mackerel then Iím not going to drive home Iíll use my bait boat.
They should be should when necessary, I would never dream of using one on your big standard day ticket lake just for the sake of it, but to be totally against them is narrow minded.

I best most boat users can cast accurately anyway....... Not true, some but not most.
Rock guitarists defunct.....

It reminds me of how rock guitarists all went mental in the late 80s / early 90s about dance music producers having no "skill" because they used computers and not guitars to make music. They were wrong - they just didnt like that a new method came along and made the "skills" they'd been practising for years and years defunct.

Lots of folks don't like change it's part of some peoples nature.
