Hey everyone! I spent my weekend in lindsay fishing the scugog river. Fished all weekend and caught tons of fish! i started fishing carp and got 3 fish, plus my new PB . One of them was 10 pounds, the other was 21 pounds, and my new best 32 pounds and 9 ounces when carp fishing was slow i went into the locks and tried some fly fishing. caught tons of nice bluegill one after another on many different fly patterns. the prince nymph worked really well but i tried some grasshopper patterns and caught lots . i even got a few crappie as well . It was funny watching the bluegill nail the dry flies i will post pics with it

Great post and pictures. Congrats on the PB Never fished for carp before but it looks like fun and nice size fish. I also have never fly fished before but would like to learn some day.

That's great! Looks n sounds like you had fun. Were you still fishing for the carp? I don't have the patience for still fishn anymore. I've had carp hit my jig once and a Texas rigged worm. Those were just coincidental of course. Well thnx for the report. Happy fishn!

Great report and congrats on the PB carp. 32 lbs is a whale of a carp.. Must have burned those biceps reeling it in..

Also good job fly fishing for crappie. Great way to catch panfish and lots of fun. Love the pics of those crappie with the flies.

Carp are a blast to catch......I am doing it more each year.

I was using an ambassadeur reel and one of my bass crankbait rods. I was using berkley 14 pound high-vis orange line attached to a barrel swivel to a 10 pound leader to the hook. i was just fishing with regular corn too. i would turn on the clicker on my reel and put it on free spool so i could tell when a fish was moving. i will try to upload more pictures once I take them off my phone. Thanks guys
