Arizona Canal Spillway Fishing! (Underwater Canal Footage)
The canals here in Arizona are on fire for carp fishing right now! Arizona fishing can be good all through the year, even in the heat of the day. Me and my buddy headed out to a canal spillway we have never fished before in hopes of just catching something. We managed a decent carp that bit on bread. It was a pretty slow bite after that. After a short 20 minute drive to another section of the canal, we found ourselves in a mess of grass carp. The Arizona canal program actually stocks these fish into the canals to control the vegetation. Catfishing Arizona can be very good in the summer as well. We saw more fish on the underwater camera than we even caught! You would not think there is that many fish down there on the bottom. The gofish cam was able to get some great underwater canal footage. All in all a great day fishing kin the Arizona canals. I will be back out again soon to get on some fish.
Arizona Pond Fishing for Catfish, Carp, and Giant Goldfish!
It is not everyday you get to catch so many fish in one pond! The giant goldfish were probably the coolest to catch! A big shout to AZfishkid for letting me know about this spot! We headed out to a small community pond here in Arizona. Luckily for us, this pond was full of catfish, carp, and goldfish. The whole time this day we did not have to wait long at all for a bite. For bait we used plain ole bread. That is what every fish was caught on this day. Between the huge mirror carp, and monster goldfish, we were pretty busy. Arizona fishing has been tricky for me lately, I have been struggling to think of new fishing ideas for you all. Hopefully I can think of something soon! There is definitely no shortage of fish here, just showing you all a non repetitive video can be tough. From catfishing Arizona to carp fishing Arizona, I have enjoyed it all. Arizona has more species to offer tho, so I may be switching it up a bit more! Thank you all my loyal subscribers for watching! And m
Fishing for Massive Tilapia in Crystal Clear Water!
Today we tilapia fished in this pond loaded with big fish. From small tilapia, to big albino tilapia, this pond has got it all. For bait we used worms and bread, and this seemed to do the trick. We started the day fishing with a bobber, but then switched to sinking the bait to the bottom. The bigger trophy tilapia were near the bottom. Pond fishing is so much fun especially when you are fishing in crystal clear water. This Arizona pond is so clear that you can see tilapia all the way out in the middle. We caught some nice tilapia, including a very big albino one at the end! This place was a lot of fun to fish, and I will definitely be back to see if I can catch some more Arizona tilapia.
Chumming the Pond for 3 Days... Then Fishing It! (Catfish Edition)
We literally could not keep a rod in the water for more than 30 seconds… It was non stop action all morning. After chumming the canal for 3 days and fishing it, I decided to give this local pond a try! Like I said before, this pond already has good fishing, so this chum worked extremely well! I chummed the pond every morning for 3 days, and on the 3rd day I fished. The chum was made mainly for catfish and consisted of hotdogs, chicken liver, oatmeal, breadcrumbs, shrimp, fish sauce, garlic powder and corn. This is a catfish and carp recipe I modified slightly. As you can see it did an amazing job at drawing in the channel cats! Urban pond fishing in Arizona can be very crazy if you chum! We literally could not keep a rod in the water for more than 30 seconds. It was completely on fire. The catfish were slamming the garlic chicken liver.
Catching Channel Catfish in the Arizona Desert
Me and mark from fishing with strykerbait headed out to the gila river in search of some channel catfish! This spot happens to be in the desert of Arizona so it was amazing scenery. I was using chicken liver to catch all my fish, and as you can see it did great for the catfish! The day started slow with only a few bites, but then picked up when we found the fish. Arizona catfishing is super fun, especially when you can find the off the grids spot like this one! From channel catfish to bass, you can catch it all out here.
Roadside Canal Fishing for Catfish and Carp (Urban Arizona)
We are back on a new spot on the canal! Arizona has been getting very hot lately, so the canals have been the spots I have been targeting the most. Running canal water stays much cooler than stagnant pond water. This day we used bread and worms and caught almost every species you can catch in the canal. From both species of carp, catfish, and even some bass and bluegill. Arizona fishing has a good array of freshwater species. Arizona canal fishing is a lot of fun, but during this hot summer, you need to exercise caution while fishing. Bring plenty of food and water whenever your outside. You may just get lucky enough to catch a canal catfish, or even some canal carp.
Canal Spillway Fishing in the Arizona Desert!
We are back with some more Arizona canal fishing! We headed out to a deeper section of the canal in search of whatever we could get to bite. We were using worms and corn as well as some chicken liver. We actually managed to find a flowing spillway out on the canal! I had never fished a true spillway before, so that was cool to do. Spillway canal fishing will definitely be on the agenda for the future videos. These canals are some of the best catfishing, carp fishing, and bass fishing in the state. They are accessible to just about everyone, and they are full of fish. Go down to your nearest canal and see what is swimming around.
Urban Arizona Canal Fishing with Worms! (Big Fish)
We hit the Arizona canals not knowing what we were going to catch, but ended up getting a mini slam! We caught bass, tilapia and also carp! Worms are such an underrated bait now a days. Everyone is into using the fancy new baits and forget that worms are just as effective. The summer is hitting hard here in Arizona, so the fishing can be tough. It is important to find the shade in the canals or even in the urban ponds. Urban fishing can be really fun especially when you find those really big bass or tilapia. Get yourself a bobber and start drifting it under those bridges!
How Catfish React to PUNCH BAIT Underwater!
Here we go! We caught some really nice channel catfish in this urban Arizona pond! Underwater fishing has been so helpful to me so far, so I want to continue to help you all get a look at what these fish are actually doing down there underwater. The bait of choice was punch bait. The flavors I used were echo gizzard, alpha blood, and garlic. The channel catfish here in Arizona love punch bait. I have never really seen any success with it until I tried here. The fish were all big in this pond! As you can see they have a great supply of food down there. Healthy and hungry fish were the name of the game. We got a good mix of fish both on the camera rod and off the camera rod. This underwater fishing camera sure is cool!
Arizona Urban Pond BIG Channel Catfish (Underwater Footage)
This was a crazy day full of catfish action at the pond! This urban pond was stocked just a day before this with tons of channel catfish. The underwater shots are a bit hard to see, but I put the ones in there that came out okay. We caught some really nice size urban catfish! Arizona has a great stocking program to provide anglers with fish. These urban Arizona ponds already received their last stock until fall, so go get em while you can! The hot bait today was stryker punch bait. The gizzard and alpha blood were the ticket today. Urban Arizona catfishing can be very fun as long as you fish the stock! I have been exploring all over the place looking for new places to fish here. Underwater catfishing footage is a great way to see how the fish are acting down there. It does not always come out great but you can still see the catfish swimming around down there.
Sight Casting Channel Catfish in an Urban Pond!
I was on my out from a fishing trip when I spotted some fish! The turned out to be feeding channel catfish! We decided to throw our chicken liver at them and boy did they eat it. You never know what your going to see in the Arizona urban pond setting. This pond happened to be stocked with catfish a day before this, so it was loaded with fish. This is something you do not really see too often, so it was cool to experience. Channel catfish put up a great fight, especially on light tackle. Sight casting for any kind of fish is fun, but sight casting for catfish is just something you have to appreciate. These urban Arizona ponds are stocked heavily, but they are now done with stockings until august. There are still catfish to be caught in these urban ponds! Go get them while you can. If you get lucky you may see a few swimming around in front of You!
Arizona Urban Pond Catfishing (Non-Stop Bites)
The stockings have finished up for the spring and won’t begin again until fall! These urban ponds still hold fish! Arizona does a great job at making sure the ponds are full of fish. This day started out extremely slow, I only had a few small finicky bites. As soon as I switched to the garlic scented stryker punch bait, the bite turned on. It is amazing what a small change can do. We missed fish, we lost fish, and we caught fish. These urban catfish really turn on when you give them what they want. Channel catfish bite all kinds of baits, but for some reason here they just love punch bait. It is important to have different bait options to try in your body of water. Urban pond catfishing can be very fun so long as you choose the right bodies of water. As you can see you can get on some awesome catfishing action in a short span of time.
Chumming the Canal for 3 Days! Then Fishing It!
Canal fishing at its finest! I chummed this section of the canal for 3 days and then fished it! I boiled about 10lbs of corn and included some panko and jello in the mix. This type of chum can attract all kinds of species of fish. From carp and catfish, to even small baitfish. After dumping all this food into the Arizona canal, the fish were mostly congregated in this spot! Arizonas canal systems go on for miles, so it was great to concentrate the fish to catch them easier. As you can see me and my buddy had a pretty awesome day of canal fishing. We almost fell in the canal a few times but hey its all in fun XD. Canal carp fishing can be so much fun. Arizona fishing is mainly carp and catfish for bait fisherman, so go out there and chum up your canal! This method works in any body of water, if you feed fish long enough, they will come.
Arizona Canal Catfishing with Punch Bait!
We headed out for a short urban Arizona canal trip and it paid off! The channel catfish were biting! Canal fishing can be very tricky, especially when you can’t find the fish. I had fished 2 other spots this day with no luck until I came here. The canal catfish were eating the Stryker punch bait, specifically the anchovy and garlic flavors. This bait has yet to fail me in an area with fish. The bites came fast for these catfish, but after about an hour and a half it just died. This tends to happen. Catfishing Arizona can be very fun! You just need to be willing to move around to find the fish. The urban fishing scene here is amazing and loaded with canals and ponds. Channel catfish are all over the place. Go find them!
Fishing a Tiny Roadside Canal in Urban Arizona
These urban tiny canals are so much fun! We caught a fish in the tube! You never know what you are going to catch in these little canals along the city. We managed a few bass and tilapia in this urban canal. Most of the fish were spawning but we plucked a few out of there! Arizona has hundreds of these little canals all along the city. Urban spots are plentiful, so go out and explore. I am sure most of the people passing by me fishing were thinking I was crazy, but hey I will fish anywhere there is fish. Go get out there and explore those urban Arizona canals people! Arizona canal fishing is something I will be starting to do more of again. The sawn will be over soon.
Arizona Catfishing a Small Desert River!
We explored some desert catfishing today! I headed out to a more remote part of the desert to search for some catfish! I have heard that Arizona catfisherman catch some real giants out here on the river. We struggled a little bit to get livebait in the early part of the day so that swayed us away from flathead fishing. This was my first trip out to this desert river so I will be back. We also had some surprising by catch first thing in the morning! We ended up using our tried and true chicken liver for some channel catfish. We turned the day around and ended with 4 fish! These channel cats are so much fun in a small river like this. Arizona catfishing is really growing on me, as there are so many cool fishing spots that you can find fish in. I am looking at exploring some punch bait soon, because the locals swear by it up here! Stryker punch bait is coming soon!
Urban Arizona Catfishing! (Underwater Catfish Footage)
Urban Arizona catfishing! These ponds were just stocked with channel catfish, so it was time I headed out to try my luck! Urban fishing is something I have always loved, so why not throw the underwater camera down there to see what was around. The underwater catfish footage turned out great! This pond was very clear, as most of arizonas fishing ponds are. We saw some awesome channel catfish, panfish, and even trout down there! Chicken liver attracts all kinds of species! My go catfish bait has always been garlic flavored chicken liver, and as you can see it did produce us a few channel catfish. However, the clear pond water was making the fish a bit weary, and they soon stopped biting the bait after catching some of them. The Arizona department of fish does a great job at stocking the community ponds with fish, so if you can, get out there and catch some!
Catfishing an Arizona Canal with Chicken Liver!
Back with some more canal fishing! The catfish were out and biting chicken liver this day! We managed to get some awesome canal fishing done here in Arizona. We even got a surprise catch on the chicken liver! With the help of chum pods, we were able to keep these canal fish in one spot so they were easier to catch! As I said I have been exploring Arizona fishing, and I try to fish a new spot every time I go out. This canal has provided some great fishing for me especially being in the desert! Whether I am catching carp, catfish, bass, etc… I know I can catch all of those fish in the canals. Chicken liver has really helped me catch more fish here! Catfish and carp seem to love it! I would give it a try if I were you! Arizona canal fishing will never get old, as I will continue to explore more of my home fishing waters. Flathead fishing is coming soon! I have already been out looking for spots.
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
Roadside Ditch Fishing in Urban Arizona
I am continuing to explore these canals! Arizona has not let me down so far! Canal fishing is quickly becoming my new favorite type of fishing! This day we fished a literal puddle of water that was separated by a shallow section of water. Ditch fishing is what I liked to call it. Roadside fishing can be very productive if you are in the right spot. Talapia and bass were the fish we were able to catch today! We even switched up rigs a bit and caught them bobber fishing. Worms were the bait of choice, as most species of tilapia and bass eat worms. We did lose a fair number of fish also, so who knows what else is down there. We did not catch any big tilapia or bass, but it was fun to get out and find a new unique fishing spot. I did do some more fishing later this day, but you will have to wait till Sunday to see that!
