I was on Rixton Clay Pits today and saw a Carp angler using a Bait Boat (see photos). Is this fair,is it in the true spirit of angling?
I can understand why the Carp anglers use them, to get their baits into dificult swims and swims which are outside casting distance.
I can't help but think it must disturb the rest of the anglers and their swims, to have a remote control boat running around the water!
This boat I saw today was a fantastic piece of kit,it had a sonar fitted,so the angler could see the contors on the bottom of the lake,and judge the most likley fish holding areas.It also charged it's batteries by solar power.
I'm not sure I can't see myself using one but you never know!
