FISHING with NO sleep for 48 hours – FISHING WITH LURES

Fishing when you’ve not slept for ages is tough. We catch a load of predators with lure fishing tackle, having just returned from an epic adventure in Canada!

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, bass 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 these videos. 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.

    • Carl and Alex Fishing

      School work always came first, I always worked as hard as I could to get school work done and out the way and spent the rest of my time making videos! It wasn't easy but loved it! ๐Ÿ™‚ I think my class mates thought I was a bit mad! Good luck!

    • Thanks! The only problem is I don't know much about filming or editing.

  13. Carl and Alex, I've been watching your videos all over Xmas/NY and follow your sections in IYCF. I have a small fisher of a couple of Farm ponds in Nottinghamshire. One has a good head of Crucians (True Crucian carp), Tench (and gold ones) and some good rudd! Let me know if you fancy some fishing for True Crucian carp. Love to see a bit more coverage on the shy but stunning fish!

    • Carl and Alex Fishing

      Thanks! Glad you've read the IYCF articles! Thats cool ๐Ÿ™‚ Cheers for the lovely comment, and best of luck with your fishing ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hopefully one day we can visit your ponds!

  19. Awesome video and I am excited about that float fishing video

  23. love the video as always! every Friday I am full of excitement for the new video. good work guys!

  24. What rods do you guys use?๐Ÿ‘

  25. Do you guys ever eat perch? If not you should. Some of the best fish you'll ever put in your mouth!!!

    • Carl and Alex Fishing

      To be honest, we never really eat the fish we catch in UK waters, only because most places have rules disallowing it, but also because a lot of the places we fish are pressured by lots of anglers and if we all took a couple they would quickly dent the populations. That said, I've also heard perch are nice so might try one some day!

    • Carl and Alex Fishing Thanks so much for the reply. Keep up the good work and know that I am watching intently.

  26. The walleye are excellent eating as well!!!

  27. How do Zander compare to their close cousin the walleye as far as the fight goes? I've caught walleye here in the US and sometimes it felt like I was dragging up a wet sock.

  28. Iโ€™m a young fisherman myself started at least a year ago loving the vid I recommend visiting Yateley pad lakes keep it up

  29. Where is the lakes

  30. Big cock Carl ๐Ÿ˜‰
    You guys should try a good old Canadian spinner or spoon eh

  31. Nice one guys I know an excellent place for big perch pike and chub get ya selfs to the river Ouse just out side Buckingham some hidden treasures their ent fished it for a very very long time but itโ€™s a place you should defo try lads nice fishing ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŽฃ๐Ÿ™

    Enjoyed that boys๐Ÿ‘ get some sleep now ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  35. What you call Xander we call walleye

  36. If you guys can stay up for 48 hours you'd be great competitors for the 39 hours series

  37. You need some sleep ha love it ๐Ÿ‘ ๐ŸŽฃ ๐ŸŽฃ

  38. Good video guys but I'm a little confused. In the first minute of the video you say never fished at Gratham before, yet Alex says he on day two that he hasn't caught a zander since you were last there?

  39. Nice video, you should try a series where you go to fish day ticket venues that are cheap and no night fishing just to show that you donโ€™t have to be part of some secret syndicate to catch a big fish. Great video guys Iโ€™m living the weekly uploads!

    • Carl and Alex Fishing

      Ok mate will keep this in mind in future! About 90% of our videos already are on day ticket or open access waters. Like this vid for example ๐Ÿ™‚

  40. Yeah – i'm confused use are willing to drive whilst supposedly mega tired. Shocking!

    • Carl and Alex Fishing

      It's not ideal. But I've done plenty of 15hr + drives across Europe with work so I guess you become less conscious of it. Got to be careful though of course. ๐Ÿ‘

  41. lovely.more like this please.

  42. Hi Guys! Great vid as usual. Looking to upgrade my fish finder and looking at the Humminbird Helix 5 with down imaging but struggling with a portable transducer that i can obvs remove from the reservoir boat at the end of each day. Noticed your tidy set up and was wondering what transducer set up you had?
    Any info would be greatly appreciated ๐Ÿ™‚

    Keep up the good work!!!

    • Carl and Alex Fishing

      Yeah we have the Helix 5 with the transducer that comes with it. Don't know what its called but works fine. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Cheers for the reply chaps! So that clap etc comes with it? You don't know which Helix 5 model you have? Soz for all the questions!


  43. I would be up for a somewhat fishing marathon lol. Do you guys know about the WPC world predator cup, there is an england qualifier this coming aug 18,being held at grafham water entries taken up untill may im seriously thinking of taking part

  44. Hi Carl and Alex you met me at horseshoe carp weekend Walst you were filming Alan Blair AY

  45. I saw you driving at the top of Tanyard s lane on the 6th of January

    • Carl and Alex Fishing

      Haha thats pretty cool ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • I was in the gold Reno I think you are awesome and could you tell me the name of the park lake as I am getting into speci fishing more and more pb 10lb grass carp and I have just got my self a KNX Colt rod 3.5lb tc

  46. Hi both. Have watched your stuff since the beginning. I love watching your vids. Great camera work, nice editing, skills and decent pair of bro's!…Looking back (ended up in period property restoration) what you are doing now is what my ancient (43) heart has always wanted to do!!!. Top work to you both!

  47. I met you Carl when you came and helped us surface fish with dan in the evening for carp

  48. Hi there Carl and Alex, I was wondering if youโ€™ll be at the big one this year? Jack

  49. Nice catches!
    Do you (or can you?) ever keep perch or zander to eat?
    Here in the US, yellow perch and walleyes are some of the best fish for eating!

  50. Deos any one else think that Carlโ€™s and Alex are the best fishing YouTubers in the world I think that they deserve more credit than they allready have

  51. Hi guys … interesting vid as always, quick question ….. was that your own 'fishfinder' or did u rent it with the boat? tyia.
