  1. There is a wide range of material available for making your rigs. Different diameter and stiffness mono, flourocarbon, braid and coated braids. You can also use rig tubing and heat shrink tubing on your rig. Coated braids are popular because they are stiff enough not to tangle with your mainline on casting. They strip off enough of the coating in order to tie the hair rig, It is expensive at about a buck or more a yard and you'll need a stripper tool as well. Mono will do a good job but needs to be replaced often. That should not be a problem as the hair rig is very easy to tie once you tie a few. Also by using a semi fixed lead you will reduce the strain on a mono hook link because the weight will detach from your swivel and slide up the line when the carp shakes it's head.
  2. Here is the information on the grass carp from Jordan Harbour. http://nas.er.usgs.gov/queries/SpecimenViewer.aspx?SpecimenID=877688
  3. Anybody hear about a grass carp caught in Jordan Harbour a couple of weeks ago?
  4. Thanks guys. I had been told that it stays 10 -12 ft for a long ways out , over 200 yards. But I wanted some conformation from you guys.
  5. YY Yes they are different. The troubling part for me is, as Snags stated the grass carp are triploids that are released into ponds and reservoirs for weed control. Where did someone in Toronto get a hold of live fertile grass carp. That's assuming they were released there.
  6. I wanted to ask if anyone knows the waters off of Charles Daly Park. I had been told that the depth is pretty uniform out to about 200 yards from shore. Any body have some input on this.
  7. Even if they are fertile grass carp require a specific set of factors to spawn successfully. They cannot reproduce in Lake Ontario. The need flowing water that moves at a certain speed for the right distance. I have read that it is challenging to get them to breed.
  8. steelshady. Perhaps you are not familiar how carp tournaments are run. In this case a two man team draws a number that corresponds to a numbered marker on the bank called a peg. This is the spot from which they must fish. They get so many feet to the left and right of the peg but that is it for the next five days. Having 4 rods, two per angler allows them to explore all the possibilities in front of them . The equipment used, bait runner reels with sophisticated electronic bite alarms assures that fish that take the bait are attended to in a timely fashion . This is a standard practice for these tournaments world wide. Their fish handling and care are the best the world has to offer and their record of released fish surviving puts bass, walleye and any other species specific fish tournaments to shame. This was an opportunity to see the best in the world and see how it is done and our government blew it.
  9. Yes it is unbelievable. I thought that resources were supposed to be managed for the benefit of the people of Ontario. I guess the money and global recognition are not considered benefits . Well spoken Bill.
  10. Try outside of the spawning activity. Not all the carp spawn at once and there should be some carp close to the spawners that will take your bait.
  11. Nice carp.. Looks like you had a blast.
  12. Here you go . If you have any questions I will try to help. https://youtu.be/2Ksd3phNxjc
