October 8th, 2020 (Session 68) – In this EPF episode, I went to one of my local canals for some Urban Sight-Fishing for BIG FISH. Read more about it below:
Did you know that…?
🤜…My PB Common Carp up to date is a measly 33lber. Over 9 years of fishing in Philadelphia, I have yet to break 40lbs on the Carp!!! I did start a “Quest for the 40lber” a few years ago; however, that series is currently on hiatus. If you missed those episodes:
🤜…My biggest Common Carp from the Delaware Canal was a 12lber that I pulled on June 29th, 2013. That photo is on the unlisted Common Carp folder on my Smugmug Fish Photo Database — Patreon & YouTube Monthly Members can access it. The fish was caught on a piece of corn UNDER A FLOAT. Hahaha. I remember seeing the float disappear, and next thing you know…it resurfaced 50 feet from its initial position. It was a wild fight, for sure!!!
🤜…The Manayunk Canal connects to the Schuylkill River; thus, all the species found in it originally came from the River. That includes the recently established population of Northern Snakehead (Channa argus) there. See this video, for example: youtu.be/69eBEVjDoPU
