  1. Water levels until quite recently have played a part in the spring fishing. One thing that I have had great success with is dried fruit for hook/ hairbait. Raisins (golden and red), dehydrated cranberreries (craisins) have done remarkably well. Try any tribs off of Lake Erie..... I have broken the 30 lb mark on 2 occasions and 20lb + fish can be expected at each session. Chumming to excess has always worked for me ...I'll go through a 5 gallon pail of boiled feed corn at each session. Good luck to all this season, it's going to be a good one.

  3. Very interested in your endeavors, this is what this forum needs.. April 15 is my estimated splashdown date....
  4. Just checked with the google gods and some scientist claims that carp feeding patterns are the same from 4 - 34 degrees Celsius.... we'll be there before months end. Long range forecast for spring is warm and dry, sounds like heaven is just around the corner....
  5. Great venue, nice clean looking fish. Your smile says it all....can't wait for spring... Let's keep the carp eye candy going .....love this stuff

  8. Thanks Mike, have gone 0 for 3 on the salmon front.....but did learn how to tie an egg loop knot......comes in handy carping to hold a PVA stick...
  9. November 5th was one of those June days in November. I was fortunate to get out with my fishing buddy and enjoy the warm day and some scrappy specimens...... Here are some pics...

    Unreal

    Mixed emotions about this as an angler. In a lot of ways I like the enigmatic state of carp fishing. I wouldn't want to have it become a shoulder to shoulder sport like the steelheaders. Even if they held the tournament the gov would find another way to be a smile wiper...just saying....
  12. Thanks guys, as a footnote. I bought some prepared hookbait from Sail, called licorice lust....it was the hot bait....very pungent..
  13. Spent a great morning with a coworker and his young son....I think they are hooked
  14. Just a few pics of me and my son. Got to get out there....
  15. It's in the hands of the carp Gods....but I'm sure going to give it a go....

    Pay Dirt

    Last Friday we decided to roll the dice and attempt a day long session at our favourite spring location. The weather networks had various ideas what the day would be like so we decided to man-up and face the elements. We arrived at our spot at 7:30 after an hours drive and immediately setup camp, especially the day tent as it was cloudy and looked like rain. Water temp seemed cold but we saw some surfacing so we knew they were there, but would they bite? We used strawberry flavoured maize and some home-made boilies to prime the swim. Honey cucc was used as hook bait on the hair. It didn't take long at all before the action started. Julian was leaving me behind as he banked 3 fish before my first good run. The action never let up, we had 10 fish in before 10 am and it kept on going. Our previous record was 28 fish for this spot so we set our sights on breaking 28 before calling it a day. We ended up breaking the record at 29 fish just before 6 pm......too tired to get to 30 ...but I guess its good to leave something to shoot for next time. I lost the competition 17-12.... The fish ranged from 10 lbs to 26 lbs, only two over 20 were caught but were all feisty and fighting well. Here are some pics, we did have a double header and a near mishap with a new rod and reel (carp know when the bait runner is off or too tight). It's time to get out there ...they are hungry...
  17. Thank-you sir!
  18. I see that there are carp matches held in Guelph and I suspect its Guelph Lake. I've bass fished the lake years ago and remember seeing carp jumping. Has anyone fished it recently? It's a bit of a drive for me but the it looks like a nice venue. Appreciate some help. Kevin
  19. Hearing it loud and clear, too early, too cool..... May will be the month!
  20. Went out today to my favourite spot.....chum chum chum....wait wait wait...... Couple of light bites but thats all folks..... Felt good to be at the waters edge ....
  21. Georgeous fish, the black n white is awesome...... Looks like you're first out of the gate....congrats. Good stuff...
  22. Getting my gear together.. I'm looking to have my first session in two weeks, can't wait.....
  23. Thanks Mark, problem I don't have the bait n wait time that it takes.... Have you been out yet? I'm hoping to wet my line in about 3 weeks ......my spot is open but temp is not there yet
  24. Need to hear an alarm soon ..........

  25. Something I want to try this year but I'm intimidated with the amount of shoreline to choose from. Has anyone had luck fishing carp in Lake Erie from the beach and if so is there any area that you can suggest?
