Shallow Arizona Canal Fishing for Big Fish!
I am loving this Arizona canal fishing! This day me and the wife were in search of fish along the canal. We had tried a few different spots before this one, so we were ready to start catching fish. Canal carp is what we ended up with! First cast with bread balls we end up hooking up! The fight for these canal carp is always good on 4 lb test. It did not take long before another fish bit the bait. We ended up losing it though. These Arizona carp are so common in these canals, it is hard not to catch them. After I had some luck, I decided to get wifey on her first carp ever. Not long after casting into the water, she hooked up on a nice 12lb carp. All of these fish were safely released back into the canal. That was her first fish of Arizona! You never know what you are going to catch canal fishing in Arizona. The srp canals are home to so many different species. Grass carp are protected though, so it is important you release them if caught. I am not going to lie, I am loving the Ariz
Catching Fish on Tortillas in an Arizona Canal
Let’s go! The canal fishing continues! I was on my way out after a skunk while catfishing and spotted these carp sitting under a bridge! All I had on me that I was able to use was the tortilla from my burrito that I had for lunch. Carp are big fans of tortilla, including the grass and common carp in the Arizona canals. All it took was a small piece of tortilla on a finesse hook, and boom! Fish on. These canals are full of grass carp and common carp. When you decide to try and fish the canals, bring some kind of carp bait. These fish get huge! And can give you a great fight. I was also using 4lb test, so the fight was much for emphasized. These canal fish pull hard. So far, these grass and common carp have pulled drag the hardest in Arizona. I have already filmed 2 more trips that will be posting sometime next week. This is only the beginning of the Arizona fishing adventures!
