Blind Adventurer Miles Hilton-Barber Comes to the Long Sault
By Lawrence Euteneier
The 3rd and final leg of my fishing adventure with Mile’s
Hilton-Barber involved fishing for Carp on a section of the St.
Lawrence River that is now known as St. Lawrence Lake. Miles
contacted me through my website ( www.blindfishingboat.com ) to
set up a Blind Canadian fishing adventure, and what adventure
wouldn’t be complete without a session of monster Carp fishing
on the St. Lawrence Lake.
Family to Carp Fishing
I thought what better way for my Dear Wife (DW) to
develop an appreciation for fishing for monster Carp than to
have her catch a few herself. To this end, I arranged for us to
go camping for the weekend along the shore of the St. Lawrence.
I reserved a camp site that provided direct access to the River,
and with the assistance of some local outfitters, had the waters
in front of the site chummed with soaked corn for several days
prior to our arrival.
Benson (1984 – July 2009) was "Britain's biggest and best-loved"

during the afternoon out on the boat checking water temperatures
and depth readings etc, and of course putting baits into areas

I guess we are going to have to accept defeat and tell the full
story of Shamu. Colin first saw the fish quite a few times
before I did. After baiting up we always wash out the bait
buckets and brush the spilt corn off the boat in the same place,
and Colin came back breathless and excited about this huge fish
he had seen feeding over this bait. He of course put more bait
down and revisited often.
