I Hooked a Huge Fish in the Canal!

We hooked something MASSIVE! Whatever this fish was I could not stop hi from running. The Arizona canals are home to some giants. This day I was canal catfishing and canal carp fishing. We had some chicken liver and bread for bait. Bread balls have been the best bait so far for grass carp and common carp. After getting a few grass carp on bread, we hooked into a huge fish. He immediately took me upriver. All I had on was 4lb test, so this fish did as he pleased. Unfortunately he popped off after about a 3-4 minute fight. My guess was a huge carp. After this epic fight, my catfish rod ended up getting a huge bite on chicken liver. I was really hoping for a big channel catfish, but it ended up being an even bigger grass carp! A crazy day in the Arizona canals to say the least. I am hoping to do some more big lake fishing when I get my big fishing rods back! I currently in the process of moving so I do not have all my usual gear.

Hello all, My name is mark Pickett and I love fishing and exploring the outdoors. I have been fishing “seriously”for about 11 years now. I film fishing videos a few times a week and I am excited to share that all with the people online. Fishing is my passion, so I am always trying to bring the best content as possible. As time goes on, I look to improve the quality of my videos. Right now I do a lot of fishing for big catfish, but I enjoy catching multispecies as well. Enjoy the videos!
