Hi guys,
Newbie to the forum but not to carping, been fishing properly for 7-8 years now and my pb is a 26lb mirror hoping to smash that this year. Any way i moved to bournemouth about a year ago but havent managed to get much fishing in so would love to know of some decent specimen lakes round here instead of tiddler bashing.
Cheera guys
Matt.

Thanks for your great response,

I will try to ask a question in the correct thread next time, or start my own.

Great photos by the way, it has certainly inspired my to try again.

Hi Matthew.

Welcome and are sure you will learn allot on this forum.

Not really the best thread I think to post questions in but seeing as your question stir's up some dear memories I will try to answer you as quickly as I can.

In short Canal's tend to be very shallow, next time you are out take your landing net and poke it into the water in the margin till you find the bottom, this will answer your question I think.
It would generally be the deepest in the middle of the Canal but this won't be much deeper than the margin a couple of feet at best.

Each stretch of the Canal you fish will be different though and will differ in the makup of the bottom but my advise to you would be to pull up your lines when a boat is approaching and to recast it after the boat has passed.

I know this is very frustrating and one of the main reasons apart from the crayfish that I don't fish Canal's much threw the summer no more.
In the colder months the traffic on the Canal's will die down and I find the winter months VERY productive for catching carp from the Canal and best of all the banks will be empty.

You will also find that the carp on the Canal tend to follow the narrow boats down the Canal as the boat turns up the bottom and they love this.
I have had numerous captures just after a boat has passed and then just casting behind the boat.
Give this a try.

Then but definitely not lastly as far as Carp Safety is concerned, much better to rather pull up lines when a boat is approaching than to risk having a cut off and maybe even leaving a baited rig behind in the water for a carp to be picked up.
Remember Carp Safety always first and foremost.

Canal fishing is exciting and one of the best places I think personally to learn to catch Carp.
I hope this helps, tight lines and remember to look after our Canal's.

2 Canal Carp to wet your Appetite.

A Canal 20.


Not alway's about the size but some 'Minters' to be had.


EDIT: My appologies to the mods but the question flooded me with memories.

Hello Everyone,

I am new to this forum and have a question but don't know where's best to post it, its my first post so this thread seemed appropriate.

I have been fishing on and off for 8 years but over the past 2 years I have been gradually been trying to focus on catching carp.

From reading online I quite like the idea of catching a canal carp, and apparently its good to do this at night. Last night I used my new bivy for the first time and slept on the bank with my fiancée and blanked, best I had was a very small knock. This is fine, my problem is that this morning I hooked into a barge! Fortunately the bloke stopped and wasn't too upset with me. Despite the line being around his rudder he reversed and I rescued everything without any line snapping. The rudder picked the line up from the middle so when my other rod got knotted I could untie both rigs.

My question is why did the boat pick up my line? I had two ledgers out, both with backleads on. The spot I was fishing was a barge turning spot, both rods were cast into this area close to the weeds. My rigs have a 1oz inline lead on the back lead is 1.5oz, are my leads too small?

Any help or advise would be much appreciated.

Sorry for a long first post.

Morning all,

I've been lurking around these parts for a while now and found peoples impartial views invaluable when lookin for new kit, so i though i'd best say hello!

Fished every week as a kid but as i got into my teens other things took priority. Anyway i've been fishing a week in france every year now for the past 6 years, just a boys holiday really, nothing too serious, but i'm now getting the bug again. Joined a local club with a couple of friends and looking forward to getting back out on the bank

Rob
