  1. SAIL has expanded their carp section again this year with a number of added goodies. Lots of hook and rig accessories, good selection of corn, pellets and tiger nuts and they carry several bank sticks. They also have a basic Carp Zoom bite alarm for around $25 and a number of swing arms to get you going Was skunked totally Saturday and Sunday. First "get out" of the year and bad luck was everywhere. One secluded shoreline spot was completely underwater with no way to fish. Another area was overrun with dead heads blown in and then spot 3 had nesting cormorants in the trees above and bird **** was raining down everywhere. Water levels were so high and very dirty in the other spring spots I was checking. Last holdout spot I checked was overrun with hikers and no parking.
  2. Well done! It has taken a few weeks for things to get back to “normal”. Spot#1 for me is always hit and miss but I seem to have better days fishing the inside ponds. Yesterday I spent 3 hours looking at the nose of the big red ship. Spring has arrived and managed 3 on the mat but all smaller fish. i have noticed a lot more line movements this spring but figure with the small twitches and pulls they must be gobies plan to get back out Sunday hopefully, gonna miss today’s fish in unfortunately

    Early spring bait prep

    did about 3-4 hours on several spots, kept moving if no signs of life after 30-45 minutes, final sandy beach spot had 2 line bumps and saw one small carp breach. water temps were still in low 40's
  4. Yikes repeat post?
  5. Sitting here watching the ice pellets and driving winds and hoping spring might get here soon. Spent this morning at the grocery store picking up additional ingredients to get some bait ready for spring. For the last few years this boilie recipe has been a very reliable chum as well as hook bait. Share your go to spring bait. Purple fish boilies ( used to be natural colour until the squid craze) 1 cup Seminole flour 1 cup corn meal flour 1/2 cup corn meal bits - basically fine chopped maize ( find at chinese grocery store) 1/2 cup hemp seed or bird seed your choice Start with wet ingredients in a bowl, 3 eggs, juice of 2 cans of tuna oil or water, plus secret ingredient of 4 big spoons of 3 crab fish sauce and 1/2 container of blue and pink neon food colour dyes. Add dry ingredients and mix to playdoh consistency. Add Seminole flour or water if too wet or dry. Final dough will be nice purple colour. I roll out a good batch of a hundred or so 12-15 mm size and the same 8-10 mm size. Boil for 2 minutes or so and dry 24-48 hrs. I bag up the leftover into fist size chunks and freeze for later use. The better spring set up has been the smaller size for hook boats with pink or yellow fake corn at the stopper. Rig with method feeder filled filled oats, hemp seed and corn meal bits from above. looking to get out next weekend, anywhere, anyhow!
  6. Just in from few hours site seeing some carp spots. Looks like they’ve all gone back to hibernating. Not even any ducks around on a couple spring spots. Just 1 big swan. was at dollarama on brant street, just north of lakeshore and they had packs of #4 and #2 black nickel hooks, 10 hooks $2. Bought a pack and boy are these things sharp and I had a hard time trying to roll the point. Gonna tie up some hair rigs and give them a shot and hope for some warmer weather next weekend
  7. Good on ya for getting out, winds kept my interest level at low yesterday so I just drove around and checked out a couple spots. Spot #1 was way to windy/wavy so headed more inland. #2 no parking spots so headed to bulk barn and picked up 12 grain cereal, hemp seed and red lentils to start on my pack bait. also wandered through the new Chinese grocery store at Britannia and Winston Churchill, found bags of hominy (white corn) and a ton more possible bait items to experiment with this year. So many items and flavours to try, if you’re by that area stop in a d wander the aisles. Reels and bait will be ready mid week, see ya’s out there
  8. Nice catch, had a great day myself on Sunday with 6 in the net off a shallow sand shoreline in Hamilton. Pics turned out horrible but I did manage my new pb 35+ inches and took the scale down to 32.4 mussel corn with a wire feeder packed with oats and ground dog kibble A couple other high teens in the mix http://s119.photobucket.com/user/canadafang/media/IMG_0394_zpscvw38skk.jpg.html

    Hopefully more reports will come with better weather first time out this spring, more mile than I cared to put on but extreme high and cold water every place I stopped. Tried several spring backwater spots around west end of Lake Ontario with no luck. Headed back to Hamilton harbour and found a nice warm shore line but still about 2 ft high and carp cruising in around flooded trees. lots of fish cruising and managed to land 4 fish over 2 hours, nothing special, all on garlic honey homemade corn. Fish very close to shore - 10 to 15 ft and nothing farther out. Float and bottom rig both took fish grabbed 1 photo will try and upload later
  10. Same for me so far this year. Any spot I've been looking at close to Lake O hasn't really warmed up enough and nothing is moving. Out 3 times and nothing showing in any of my springtime spots. Was gonna try more inland this weekend to see if some of the real shallow flats, slower rivers or ponds have warmed up enough. Have a few spots in mind
  11. With the sun shining all day I figured a little afternoon road trip was needed to see if any carp were moving into the shallows. Hit one early season spot on the big water and not a sign of anything for over an hour. Water is still pretty frigid. Decided to try upriver and hopefully the water temps were rising and drawing in some fish. As soon as I stepped out of the truck I saw a fish rise right up tight to the bank in front of me. Dropped in a small float and one single kernel against the reeds and watched some fish cruise up and down the reeds for about 2 hours with no takers. Dead slow cruisers and just under the surface so my guess is another couple days of these temps to start them moving. Still really nice to get out. An evening in the garage getting stuff ready for this year. Did a batch of "weenie" dumb bells tonight. These are potato flour base with hemp seed and caught me some nice fish last year. Picked up some seed and pink salt at dollarama today so adding to the spod mix. Yellow and green peas plus a few other goodies go in the pot after the seed comes out. Might head back out tomorrow after the sum warms things up more. http://i119.photobucket.com/albums/o121/canadafang/image_zpshtjwscva.jpeg

    Getting some respect, I gotta try this http://www.in-fisherman.com/tv/sight-fishing-carp
  14. nothing too special to report but things have been slow for me the last 3 weeks trying to find some active fish. have been focusing on some river mouths around Lake Ontario and seeing lots of fish in the shallows cruising but no takers on a number of trips so far. today I abandoned rivers and heading for a sandy shallow beach that has been good to me from end of April to mid May -based on the dates from previous years pictures. Wind was up and made fishing a float very difficult so I made a choice to switch over to a bottom rig. Had the baitrunner rigged up with 10 lb braid and started with some honey cumin corn. Saw several carp breach along the shore but no takers. I had put together a tub of oats and bits and pieces from odd particles from bulk barn and thought I'd change up. Put a wire feeder on and switched to good old mussel corn. Now I did start balling up some oats and chummed the area. In about 10 minutes I started to see the line jump around a lot. My buzzer was starting to do a lot of single beeps and you could just tell something was on the feeder. They'd clean the feeder and I'd repack it. This went on for a bit and then had the first good take. Was pretty wild to see the line jumping the way id did. 29" fatty This went on for a while and I was able to land another 5 from 26" to 31.125" Ran out of oats so I gotta hit up Dollarama and bulk barn tomorrow

    My day in the sun

    Nice Going, was in there last night after dinner for a hour testing out the new kit I picked up from Simon last week. I really love my new Roving Sling. Makes packing over to this area so much easier. Similar results - had 3 smaller males in an hour on honey corn topped off with pink pop up maize. Loads of line bumps, had to go completely slack line.
