My First Canadian Mirror !


Recommended Posts

So finally after 3 years of Carp fishing here in Southern Ontario a Mirror Carp hits my net
Spent yesterday down at my Local creek and all thanks to my Wife as i was going to fish at the Canard River instead as its nearer her work
but she said why don't i just drive back for the day to our local creek and what a good call that turned out to be.


After 6 hours and only 2 runs but no pick ups i was just thinking of changing down to my stalking Rod and have a mooch along the Margin's
when my reel went screaming off , when the fish first come up and i saw it was a Mirror the adrenalin really kicked in " Must not loose this one must not loose the one " oh and what a beauty it turned out to be for my first Mirror here in Ontario . And what a buzz it was to land such a nice fish
certainly put a huge big smile on this face and i was still shaking for some time after aaaaaaaaaaaa this why you angling brilliant !!!.

It was caught using a inline lead with a pack bait of Crushed Corn , Bread Flake and Crushed Dog Kibble and a hook bait of Strawberry Monster maze. with a size 6 hook .


Later that evening 3 other fish also hit the net a 14 and 15 Lbs common and a smaller fish of around 7 or 8 pound so all in all what a good call by the wife to head on back to our local creek Get IN !!.

That's awesome! I am glad my videos were able to help you create a bait that worked to catch that great mirror. As always I will be adding more as time goes on.
