Fisheries and Oceans Canada released a study on the Ecological Risk Assessment of Grass Carp for the Great Lakes. The study found that the ecological effect of these fish in most areas of the Great Lakes could be extreme within the next 50 years. From 2013 to 2016, the DFO’s Asian Carp Program has recorded […]
This Fish’n Canada episode has Pete Bowman visiting the Otonabee River in downtown Peterborough, where he and local carp guide Will Muschett strategically feed a specific, “easy to access” area and then proceed to catch fish after fish after fish. This is city fishing at its finest!
On this episode, we highlight the inaugural Canada Carp Cup Classic tournament, held in Long Sault, on the banks of the famous St. Lawrence River. This World Carp Classic qualifier event is the first of its kind, and had both highs and lows throughout the two rigorous days of fishing…with the ultimate high being the 2 winners catching OVER 1800 pounds of Carp… yup you read that right!
Pete takes his son Hunter on a Carp adventure “extraordinaire” to Lakeside Cottages on Katchewanooka Lake. Hunter soon learns that in order to catch the biggest fish of his life, it will take a world of patience. Will “the kid” have it… Pete has his doubts!
On this show Angelo takes the custom Fish’n Canada rig to Rice Lake Ontario and tries to go the unconventional route for Carp. Pete on the other hand sticks to the tried and proven shore for a more traditional Carp fishing approach. Will Ang come up with a whole new Carp system, or will Pete laugh at Ang’s $100,000 gamble?
This Fish’n Canada Carp Hotspot is on Rice Lake in southern Ontario. Rice Lake, along with the rest of the Kawartha Lakes, is known as an all-round fantastic fishing lake, with Carp included. During a past Fish’n Canada shoot, we pre-fed the area with boiled corn as to draw fish in. Next, we cast out sweet corn, extra large flavoured corn, as well as Pineapple Boilies on various slip and bolt rigs, and waited for our bite alarms to start singing. We feel Carp fishing is here to stay, so why not join us in seeking this great sportfish!
Ang and I are probably boarding a British Airways jet right about now, on our way to the UK for our annual visit to again spread the good word about the amazing fishing that Ontario Canada has to offer. This time we are heading to Manchester. The show we are attending is called the Northern […]
In a recent Fish’n Canada episode we featured Carp fishing on Rice Lake. Ang and I learned a ton on this shoot as we put our Princecraft to use… not a normal practice while Carp fishing. I used the same boat in a previous show but in a different manner. During that show I put the […]
Today, we’re gonna talk about what we’re using: rod pods and bank-sticks. Carp fishing in Canada is still in its infancy, so many anglers may not even have heard of these tools. But in Europe and the UK they’re as common as rods and reels. This gear is primarily used by carp fishermen, but any […]
This month’s Hotspot is the Pickering Nuclear Power Generating Station. It’s a fish magnet all year round, but it really excels when Lake Ontario turns cold. Ang & Pete fish this spot when the main lake temperature is in the 50’s, while the outflow from the power-station is well into the 60’s. Both baitfish and game fish are attracted to this area.Try sweet corn and boilies for Carp and small dropshot baits or live bait for the Smallmouth. Remember to bring polarized glasses as you will be amazed just watching big fish swim by.
Trust me, I am not making this up. The Ontario government, through the Minister of Natural Resources, has refused to host one of the biggest fishing events on Earth. Turned thumbs down on an event that would have profiled to the rest of the world some of the province’s most unbelievable natural resource-related tourism […]
