All About Carp – Episode 511

Carp fishing has come leaps and bounds in Canadian waters lately and we feel it’s for good reason. Since Carp “get it”, that’s finding an angler’s offering and taking the bait, followed by a rip-roaring battle, then they too should be on the sport-fish list. We get it that some will disagree, it’s a to […]

Gettin’ There – Lake Scugog & St. Lawrence River

To get to today’s Carp fishing location, for Pete’s portion of the show, he took Hwy 401 to Simcoe street north in Oshawa. He then turned right onto 7A at Port Perry. After crossing the Scugog causeway, he turned left, heading north on Island road, and next turned left onto Stephenson Point road. He finally […]

Fish Talk – Some Do, Most Don’t

Hiya folks, Gord Pyzer here, from Outdoor Canada Magazine. Some do, but most don’t. What am I talking about? We just have enjoyed one of the best smallmouth days ever. We were catching 3.75 – 4.5-pound smallmouth up in Northern Ontario. But the reality is, you can’t see that on most lakes. If you want […]

Long Sault, Ontario

Location: Long Sault, Ontario GPS: N45º 01.513′ W074º 53.592′ Species: Carp This Hotspot is directly in front of the winning “Peg” in the 2017 Carp Cup. Although Carp anglers should not expect to catch 1,000+ pounds of fish in this Hotspot every weekend, the winning team proved that the potential is there by catching well […]

Lac St. Pierre, St. Lawrence River, Quebec

This Hotspot is a very specific break-line on Lac St Pierre on the St Lawrence River in Quebec. It’s a major feeding area for Large and Small Mouth Bass, as well as Walleye and Pike. The current is deceivingly strong here so drifting baits very close to the bottom is the key. Tube jigs are the #1 choice here followed by curly tailed grubs and Dropshot finesse worms. Experiment with colors as the fish’s preferences seem to change daily.

Ontario Road Trip – Episode 475

The province of Ontario is thought to have gotten its name from an Iroquois word meaning “Beautiful water”—and we couldn’t imagine a more fitting title. With over a quarter of a million unique lakes containing one-fifth of the planet’s fresh water, Ontario is a bottomless treasure chest for anglers of all types, delivering wonders and […]

Fish’n Canada Carp Cup (Part 2) – Episode 491

As mentioned on the previous episode, Fish’n Canada Carp Cup (Part 1), we hosted and filmed the inaugural Fish’n Canada Carp Cup, where 16 two-man teams from various provinces competed for three-and-a-half days to catch one of Canada’s strongest freshwater fish! The teams were set up in designated “pegs” along the Long Sault Parkway on the […]

Gettin’ There – Fish’n Canada Carp Cup (Part 2)

To get to today’s Fish’n Canada Carp Cup, we first drove east on Highway 401. We then took Dickenson Drive south to Highway 2 at Ingleside. The stretch along Highway 2 from Ingleside to the town of Long Sault on Ontario’s St. Lawrence River is, without a doubt, one of the best Carp fisheries in […]

Fish’n Canada Carp Cup (Part 1) – Episode 490

The Fish’n Canada Television Show has taken a turn in the last decade or so in that we are now looking at Carp as a viable target fish species as well as a great television subject. “Back in the day,” says Angelo, “we were like most other Canadian anglers… we didn’t even consider Carp fishing. […]
