Trying to avoid smaller carp, I made some big boilies in the 30mm to 40mm range last week. For reference, the smaller ones in the pic are the 16mm version I normally use.

Move paid off today, landed my biggest one so far this season on a 36mm fireball (red) boilie.

good job to be catching in this heat , btw i have seen it the other way around when 20 mil boiles were catching 4 lb commons , so size may not be that crucial . depends what size fish are in the area imo .

Update: Ended up catching a one eye 14 lb common on a 40mm sweet dream boilie last night, so going to produce some 50mm - 60mm boilies, both for selective prebaiting and hookbait.

My top 2 spots have been taken over by turtles. The other night I got 12 turtles, 3 cats and one carp.

Doesn't always work out, since then I've managed to catch some mid size ones on even bigger boilies.
