[nggallery id=811]We took a gamble on the weather this morning and hoped it would not rain and headed out to finish our trophy Lake Ontario carp TV show. I was accompanied again by Ryan Edenborough and Roger Holton and we met around 7:30am to fish the Carp Zoom bait & gear in search of 2-3 trophy carp. Roger was kind enough to do some pre-baiting which really helped us to catch our fish.
We landed 3-trophy fish weighing from 20-26 lb. that took our hair-rigs and prepared corn baits fished in 20-30′ of water. Ryan & I again used the Rapala North Coast 10 1/2′ Steelhead Salmon rods loaded with Sufix 832. 20 lb. test braid. To keep our baits on the bottom we had to go to 3 and 4 oz. flat-weights. Fishing the Hamilton, ON Canal poses a challenge since large barges navigate through pushing and pulling a lot of water. When they pass, the mouth of the Canal looks more like he Niagara River with currents up to 5 mph being created. This unfortunately really moves the bottom baits around, but we still managed to catch some nice carp. Not bad for November!!
