    2019 CCC angler list

    method leads work great...3oz
  3. Hello everyone, here are the details of the post CCC tournament bieng held on the DesPlaines river in Joliet on Sunday September 29th. The peg draw will be at 6:30 a.m. in the parking lot in Veterans park. This will be the same peg draw location as the CCC from the day before. The tournament will be from 7:30 a.m. to 4p.m. This will be a full 100% payout tournament with first place getting 50% ...second place will get 30% and third will get 20%. The format will be big 3 carp. The cost will be $20 per angler and up to three rods will be allowed. This will not have weigh stewards but, you must have the angler next to you verify and sign off on the weight of your catch. There will also be an optional $5 big fish pot. This will be a peg choice rather than peg assignment. The great part is that if a certain peg puts out nice carp during the CCC, then you could potentially choose that peg. We will put chips in a bucket and they will be numbered. This will decide peg draw order. So...you could be last to get a chip out of the bucket and still get 1st peg choice. This keeps it random and fair. This event will be hosted by The Mid-State Carpers and other prizes will he awarded for small fish, most fish and last fish. Sign up....coming soon
  4. I’m looking to buy about $1400 worth of tackle and the shop I’m looking at wants $200 shipping. I order a lot of saltwater supplies online and most vendors offer free shipping after the first couple hundred bucks. Any carp tackle shops here in the US that don’t charge astronomical rates? Thanks

    Aniq Sajjed haa now been added to the angler list....welcome Aniq from Minnesota.
  13. Here is an interesting perspective on the Round Gobies https://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/27/us/27cncgoby.html There are also claims that the common carp have started eating them
  14. Hi Andrew, that was an awesome video.....What predator fish do you have in that lake, seems like that there may be a shortage of the predatory fish and do most of them not feed on the gobies? As far as I know we do not have those in the lakes I fish in SC, At least I have never heard of them around here. If you get more videos please post them, Todd

    yes....every peg that will be used you can scooter up to
  17. Great to see the King is going to defend his tittle!!!! lol right Carpist ????
  18. Is a buzz bait or a spinnerbait an acoustic, that is, it attracts by sound? Noisy surface lures as a Hula Popper has drawn fish from as deep as 20 feet.
  19. Welcome Steve Passaic River has carp in pretty much everywhere, just a matter finding a spot that you like and maybe chum it for a couple days prior to fishing and see if they are there but you can always scout any pond or lake close to you and see if you can find them, I think at least 90% of NJ waters has carp in it
  20. Looks like your situation is similar to what we have here in Colorado. Chumming (pre-baiting) is illegal. "It is illegal to introduce anything into waters of the state for the purpose of attempting to attract fish (e.g. chumming, artificial light, acoustic equipment, etc.) that is not attached or applied to a lure as defined" "A lure is defined as any man-made object comprised of metal, plastic, wood and/or other nonedible materials made or used to catch fish." So, if you use a method lead, or popup boilie rig, etc., you are fine as long as the bait it attached to the lure. Some here in Colorado question the use of pack baits and there seems to be some discretion among wildlife officers whether that is considered chumming. I do not consider it to be so, since I embed the hook in the packbait, and it remains attached by a hook link the entire time I am fishing. The packbait does tend to dissolve a bit and float around, but it was attached when I cast it out. An officer may disagree. I don't know, I haven't spoken with one. North Dakota regulations define bait in three categories: 1. Live bait and baitfish, 2. Terrestrial bait (such as nightcrawlers, and waxworms), and 3. Manufactured bait. "Products manufactured as edible fishing bait and other inert biodegradable substances are legal bait." Corn is not specifically manufactured to catch fish, but would certainly seem to fit within those definitions. It is certainly not prohibited. Same with bread, oats, bread crumbs, or other substances often used in carp fishing. Not specifically allowed, but it's hard to see a wildlife officer complaining about corn when nightcrawlers and salamanders are expressly allowed. As always, your mileage may vary. Game officers are very individual and may have their own definitions, especially for a species unfamiliar to them, such as carp. Another thing to keep in mind though is that the North Dakota regulations define common carp and silver carp as None-game Class III Aquatic Nuisance Species (ANS), which "can be kept for consumption if legally harvested." but "cannot be released alive back into a waterbody after they have been harvested." So apparently, catch and release carp fishing is illegal in North Dakota.
  21. As for the chumming, I would contact the fish & game office for an explanation. Make sure you get the name of the person you talk to. This is in case there is a difference of opinion with an officer. Can't help with the rest. Good luck.
  22. I was having trouble finding exact rules for carp fishing in North Dakota. It says there is no chumming unless the bait is attached to the hook. It does not say rather I can use sweet corn or field corn for bait or not. I am living in Minot, ND, and I wonder if anyone has any good carp fishing spots close to me.

    I’ll be there! Is is there a trail or path that I can ride my three wheel scooter down? I can’t walk very far these days.
  24. Beautiful carp and venue! Love your story. on the Heron thing, I’ve not caught any carp watching them all day, even when they walked by my rods setting off my Delkim’s.😂
  25. Congratulations on breaking the blank days. If carp fishing was so simple and easy, we would gotten bored and taken up knitting. Keep going!
