Home / Fishing Videos / Carp / CARP AND CATFISH FISHING on the Ebro 🎣 THE EBRO SAFARI


Carp and catfish grow huge on the river Ebro. We go fishing with Ditch Ballard from Ebro Mad Cats and our friend Ryan and try to catch some big carp and catfish. The fishing was tricky at first but towards the end we caught some big carp!

Our channel, Carl and Alex Fishing was launched in 2013. Our aim was to inspire people to go fishing, because at the time we did not have many friends who fished. Over the years we have filmed carp fishing, coarse fishing, fly fishing and even a bit of sea angling. We do not earn money from making these videos, in fact it costs us quite a lot to make each film. Because of this we don’t upload as regularly as other YouTubers as we both work full time, however we hope you still enjoy watching our films and maybe a few of you are inspired to get out and catch some fish.

    Thanks again Lads. Nicely put together video.

  8. Hi great video again could you tell me what camera you use ?

  9. watched it twice now lol good on ya lads

  10. Fat bloke on a bicyle

    Great film as usual guys, however I'd personally be a little disappointed that my guide first of all puts me on a swim that is actually unavailable and causes me to get thrown off the bank – I'd want my guide to be tuned into the local angling scene enough to know when and where a match was taking place and what swims would be available? And secondly, having to supply all my own general baiting supplies etc? Having to go shopping midway through a session? And finally didnt appear to have a very well developed relationship with the local fishing authorities when questions over whether you were retaining carp arose?

    • Carl and Alex Fishing

      I get what you're saying, however Ditch is a friend of ours and he did have a broken leg. haha. If we had required anything of us I'm sure he would have sorted it ;)

  11. Hey dudes, i really enjoy your fishing and brotherly banter. Would love to drown a maggot with you boys on a rad overnight sesh. Cant wait for the next vid lads. I reckon alex is the better angler ;) but carl is the perfect entertainer hehe P.S struggling with the carp in my local any tips would be appreciated

    • Carl and Alex Fishing

      Alex is definitely the better angler but don't let him hear me say that, don't want it going to his head. lol!!

  12. Hey Carl and Alex great video I am coming from Canada to the UK in august for my first time for about one or two weeks I was wondering if we could do a short session whilst i am there? Cheers guys!

    • Carl and Alex Fishing

      Hi mate, we got your email too. August is likely to be very busy for us, there is a very small chance we could make time, but it's unlikely i'm afraid mate. Hopefully you enjoy your time in England though.

    • Alright cheers I'll let you know when I get confirmed dates if its possible

    • if you want catfish :) come across to Spain.

  13. The ebro river.. Spain!

  14. Hi Carl and Alex. I take great inspiration from your videos and I'd like to improve my catfish setup what type of line and at what breaking strain would you suggest for fishing from the bank to get some distance and to land 50lb catfish.

    • Carl and Alex Fishing

      We use 40lb braid for our UK catfishing, it should do the trick. Just make sure you use a decent length mono leader of 30lb+ so it doesn't cut into the fish if it rolls on the line.

    • Gee thanks guys you are legends. I'll send you a photo of the fish.πŸ‘

  53. perch and zander why the bait shop had plastics ?

  54. I would spend the whole trip catching those big zander, but I'm an American walleye fisherman. :)

    Beautiful big fish guys, most zander look exactly like walleye. I have seen some that look different , there is a video of a 102cm(40"!) zander that looks totally different than a walleye.

    You ever want to catch big walleye come to Lake Erie late February and March but truth be told Zander get bigger I think in certain countries. I Never seen a 100cm walleye and never will.

    • Carl and Alex Fishing
