Hello fella

They are superb baits, proven, and have been catching a lot of fish and they won't blow within a few weeks either.

First time I used the fruity trifle, snowman cast to a showing fish and 20 minutes later 37lb 6oz.

Well worth a try.

M8's just started to use the Raja Spice?

First trip out, new PB 30ish... and well chuffed! That on a lake that dosent produce to Boilies and most had been blanking all winter! he ended up with 9 fish in one trip on said bait... He had only managed 2 fish all winter till then! (Yep I have had a pot of popups off him!)

sounds like these baits are well worth a go then

Fished the Trent when Shaun was in the 80's 90's and he knows his bait..... But think you have to always look at any bait companies offering a bit sceptically..... They are out to make money from us punters, I have far more pots of pop-up than I will ever use for the rest of my life! but I still keep trying to find that perfect bait!

See what your water likes and try a few simlar offerings? I used to fish one water that you would slay on Solar Banna/Toffee etc and never really cought as well on it else ware!

Good luck

Mike wrote I have far more pots of pop-up than I will ever use for the rest of my life! but I still keep trying to find that perfect bait!
Then stop buying pop-ups as they are not designed to be the perfect bait as only a handfull of companies actuly make their pop-ups to match the bait you are feeding in .Most are over flavoured over coloured and are used as a single hook-bait approach , Pop ups are fine for zigging and fishing singles but whats the point in feeding 2kg of Bait in and fishing somthig totaly different over it .Why not just insert a piece of cork or rig foam into you standard bait that way you can control how you want to fish bottom balanced or popped up and know your fish with what the Carp are eating

A few of my friends took it to france (quest is owned by angling lines holidays) they did catch a few (no where near as many as me though http://www.cemexangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif http://www.cemexangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif) and the pop ups did not pop up for very long apperently http://www.cemexangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/confused.gif http://www.cemexangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/confused.gif

Quest is owned by Shaun and not the holiday company.

You should get your mates to contact Shaun and tell him what happened with the pop ups, he would like the feedback and will do something about it.

The baits are a good source of food and can't be compared to a high attract pop up which has about as much nutritional value as a bit of flavoured foam.

It's worth giving Quest a go, but a couple of kilos and see how you go, nothing ventured as they say.

Had a look at their website after reading this thread and its one of the better bait sites out there, loads of info

01-02-2007, 09:30
So did I ,and totally agree,Great Website and very informative.
Also rang Shaun this morning to discuss a few things gleaned from it,and found him incredibly helpful and very freindly.
Great Service.

Have to say that's some website.
Now why aren't they all like that?

01-02-2007, 17:02
i must admit its got to be 1 of the best sites on the net http://www.cemexangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif

01-02-2007, 18:11
it is defo owned by Anling Lines and not saun harrison, not that it matters any way, I just don't like to be corrected by people who think they know but don't http://www.cemexangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif http://www.cemexangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Blimey Norm, dodnt know you could write such a long thread............. But think he missed my point! More a case of find a bait that suits your water.... Pop-up/bottom Bait

01-02-2007, 22:50
There's a lot of things you dont know about me Mike http://www.cemexangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif http://www.cemexangling.co.uk/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Sorry Sly, if I'm wrong I apologise but I'm also confused as Shaun said that he left the shop to start the business on his own and be his own boss.

Maybe my mis-interpretation, certainly didn't mean to be a know all.

Quest are intrinsically linked with Anglinglines and as I normally organise my French trip thorugh them I have used quest for a couple of years and am currently preparing my order for this year.

Used it at Rosseau last year and had 2 x 35.4 commons amongst a few others and the lads I was with had 30's also. This was on the Tiger nut crunch and special crab.

Haven't had much success in the UK with it though. Benefit of using it in France is that as the lake your going to stock it so you know that a fair bit has gone in and the fish recognise it as a food source.

The extras that Quest offer is quite good for the holidaying angler. EG a 10kg bag of mixed size pellet, cheaper alternative to several smaller bags of different sizes. Also they do a hard hook bait which I will be trying this year at Old Oaks as they have poisson Chat present.

Has anybody used the special crab?

There dosn't seem to be many bait companys that do a frozen bait with crab anymore

Remember using hutchys monster crab in his super fish base mix many moons ago and had a really good couple of season on it.

Have a word with Ash over at Tails Up, Me mates been fishing the SC25 "super crab" all winter and has done really well on it to.
