canal session 4/21/14

Recommended Posts

I had a very monumental session at the canal the other day as far as numbers went! I had been prebaiting this spot new spot for four days with birdseed and sweetcorn whilest spodding it into little gaps in the tree line on the opposite bank. I had started my session at around 7am and instantly had a double of some decent mid teens. I was not giving these fish anywhere to run as I was fishing completly locked up to avoid getting snagged up at all. I proceeded to catch over 20 carp all in the mid to low teens with my biggest being a 21,18, and a 17. The bait that all the fish were caught on were k-1 mullberry boosted oats and k-1 mullberry wafters in conjunction with a piece of yellow buyoant corn to make it that little bit more buyoant but the hook still stayed on deck. It twas was a fun day but not what I was looking for. The biggest carp ever documented by a carp angler from this canal is 26lbs (not by me) and I plan to spend a lot more time here in search of my bounty which is to break 30lbs from this water. This canal is only 8 miles long but just as the 26 that was caught from here was caught only in the same spot that every other carp fisherman fishes when they come here. I know shes in there somewhere! On a side note dont ask runners or joggers to help take a picture for you as they are clearly in the zone and do not want anything to disturb it!

Excellent session. Canal fishing is very similar to creek fishing. But theres no current, lots of snags and the fish are bigger. :)

I hope you get a 35lber outta there.

Nice going. Quite a haul. Canals can be very productive.
