Depends what Iím fishing over.
Solid bags will work fine on silt or low silkweed, but you wonít get a drop.
So having leaded around with a bare lead and canít find a hard spot, donít pierce the bag, let it sink slowly
then it will rest on top of the silt or silkweed.

I still try to feel for a drop and find a well packed tight bag will greatly help you in doing that!

I always try to feel for a drop with a bag this can be hard sometimes I find if you pierce the bag just a couple times it takes most the air out of the bag and you get a much better drop.

You donít always need to worry tho because unless itís over very thick high weed most of the time you will be fine and presented anyway

One LAST thing lads I promise and then Iíll stop being a noddy!

Do you all Ďfeel for the drop?í I get it is important to know what you are fishing over and generally I know my club waters pretty well. Am I at any advantage, trying to feel the bag down to the lake bed?

Merry Christmas to All and a Carpy New Year

This time of year i like lower oil, food based liquids. In the summer, hemp oil, salmon oil etc. Just don't add the oil/liqiids if you make bags up in advance

The vast majority of my fishing is done at around 40 yards so Iím hoping that 1.5oz will be plenty once the bag is loaded. Obviously Iím open to changing this should that distance need to be increased. 80 yards would be absolute maximum to be fair.

What are peoples thoughts on liquids inside of the bag? All year round thing? If so, what liquids?

Sorry for all the questions lads

Knowledge is power right?!

Another big advantage of solid bags is if you use a 3-3.5 oz flat pear in line with 3 to 4 ins of soft uncoated braid with a balanced bait you have the best self hooking rig there is imho and you can be confident it is presented.

You might struggle to get 80 yards with a 1.5 oz lead
I use 3oz flat pear or square pear inlines. so yes with a total weight of around 4.5oz you need rods that will cast that sort of weight.

When fishing at that sort of range you will need to load the bag with the lead going in first, otherwise they don't cast very well and wobble in flight,
When fishing closer you can load the rig in first.

A bottom bait would certainly work but for the reason you mentioned a balanced bait is preferable.
A solid bag presentation is designed as a mouthful, so you are aiming for the fish to take in the whole contents in one go.
If that does not happen the rig will still be fishing, providing it resets effectively, but has lost the added attraction the bag gives.

Seems as I thought that dropping the lead is unnecessary. Iíve never been a fan of this, unless it can cause damage to the fish obviously! Iíve bought some 1.5oz square pear inlines. Iím guessing that with that added content of the bag, it probably makes casting weight of around 3oz in total. (Dependent on choice of bag size) Max Distance of 80 yards really. Does this sound ok?

Would I be right in saying that the reason for the hookbait having some bouyancy, is so that it makes its way to the top of the free feed and makes it one of the first things to enter the carps mouth? Are bottom baits as effective inside a bag?

Thanks for all the advice already
