I have just signed in hoping to learn from some experienced shore fishermen.
I went with my 14 year old son to Fanshaw today in the hopes of catching a few carp. We have had success in the past but only managed a large sucker (my son) and 2 small cats. It seems we have had little success there in the past 3 goes-used to do very well there. My son loves the power of the fish (as do I). Time for me to try some other shoreline spots. One thing I hate at Fanshaw is the amount of fishermen so closely packed together. Sortof started to remind me of my river salmon days of my youth. (well.... not that bad I guess!)
I used a millet/flour strawberry jello mix as pack bait and corn on hair rig.
Tight lines all. Looking forward to reading some of these old posts.
