    Thanks..
  5. We are back for yet another series of carp fishing tournaments from September 1 through December 31, 2018 at the DesPlaines River in Joliet, Illinois! Entry fees have been reduced for this Fall 2018 Series: $15 for main tournament, $5 for optional Most-Carp Contest. I have tried to avoid any conflicts wth other Midwest events. If a conflict occurs, I will reconsider dates; but, at this point in time, I will apply for tournament approval to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources for carp tournaments that are scheduled on the dates that follow. I hope you consider participation in some or all of the following tournaments, all of which are held on Saturdays (except the Monday-Tuesday, Dec. 31-Jan. 1 team event at the end of the year): 1. “See you in September” Big 4 Carp Tournament - Saturday, September 1, 2018; Bicentennial Park and surrounding locations, Joliet, IL -- 7:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. with a 6:00 a.m. peg choice. 2. “Fall is Here” Big 4 Carp Tournament - Saturday, September 29, 2018; Bicentennial Park and surrounding locations, Joliet, IL -- 7:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. with a 6:00 a.m. peg choice. 3. “Autumn Colors” Big 4 Carp Tournament - Saturday, October 27, 2018; Bicentennial Park and surrounding locations, Joliet, IL -- 7:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. with a 6:30 a.m. peg choice. 4. “Honor the Vets” Big 4 Carp Tournament - Saturday, November 10, 2018; Bicentennial Park and surrounding locations, Joliet, IL -- 7:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. with a 6:00 a.m. peg choice. 5. “12th Annual Paul Wells Memorial - Thanksgiving Weekend” Big 4 Carp Tournament - Saturday, November 24, 2018; Bicentennial Park and surrounding locations, Joliet, IL -- 7:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. with a 6:00 a.m. peg choice. 6. “Sam Snow Memorial - Let it Snow” Big 8 Carp Team Tournament - Saturday, December 8, 2018; Bicentennial Park and surrounding locations, Joliet, IL -- 7:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. with a 6:30 a.m. peg choice. 7. “Midnight Madness - CAG FFF” Big 6 Carp Team Tournament - Monday, December 31, 2018 through Tuesday, January 1, 2019; Bicentennial Park and surrounding locations, Joliet, IL -- 11:00 p.m. until 7:00 a.m. with a 10:00 p.m. peg choice.

    Well, with 1 day to go, and fishing being terrible, I managed my last couple fish to break 1,000lbs for the CAG tournament!-this last 11lbr yesterday came with temps in the mid 90s and no wind!......one hit, one fish on a homemade boilie which made it even more special!!!............91 fish, 1,006 lbs for an average of 11lbs/fish!!!.....my personal bests, as well as about a dozen grass carp with my personal best of 46-13!!......especially after a disastrous week of losing gear, tennis shoe soles, a rod (left unintentionally for the next angler (:)- fortunately not a carp rod, tackle, an isolite from my bobbin, 5 swims in 36 hours, 3 hours apart, etc. etc.....may even try tonight........great tournament!- who else can say that the top ten finishers of a freshwater tournament averaged 25lbs for 4 fish!!!!!!!- no-one- Congrats to all!!!!
  15. Congrats John!......that is a beauty!!!!!, and Congrats to Ron!- that's a nice looker as well!!!.................always love your videos!

    Are Boilies Overrated

    well, because of this topic, I did my own little test the past 3 nights. One pole- home made boilie (wheat, strawberry, egg, flour and creamed corn balls, then boiled) vs 2 poles (identical poles, reels and cast distance- I usually keep my lines pretty close together) pack bait of panko/strawberry/birdseed and sweet corn.........and........ the past two nights EVERY fish (2 grass carp, 3 commons, 5 catfish) all came on the boilie!......try as I might though I cannot get my homemade boilies to float!- I did the microwave trick, but while a couple may float for a bot, they all sink within several minutes....I added cork pieces to some and it doesn't float either- thoughts/suggestions?- I've looked through most videos about making them.................

    Carpin help in Iowa

    Check out Roberts Creek State Park, by Red Rock Reservoir, it's prime carp water.

    IA Carpin'

    I'm from Iowa City and I fish with a guy from East Moline. We fish the LeClaire Canal and the Hennepin at the Rock on the IL side. The Lock and Dam 14 Recreation Complex has access to Smith Island which will give you good access to the canal and to the lagoon on the other side. Both hold lots of carp. The Hennepin has lots of carp as well, maybe not as big as those Mississippi carp, but we have pulled a couple of mirrors out of there. If you ever want to get together, I work the fishing counter at Fin and Feather in Iowa City, stop in, I work till 5 Monday through Friday, and we'll go get some 20's at MacBride.

    Simple tactics with method, pack or feeder & sweetcorn on the hook have worked very well for me over the years.

    Well, maybe there is such a prize... Since neither awards nor prizes were documented so far on this Spring Big4 forum, I can dream!
  21. Any info about how to fish this River would be much appreciated. Thanks

    If there was a prize for the biggest Big 4 logo you'd be a contender!

    Who's "THEY" . . . ? I don't recall anyone asking for my help . . . I here they asked everyone but me though . . . Funny how that works out sometime . . .
  24. The carp and coffee gods just continued to show me favor this spring; the coffee just kept on flowing ! With thunderstorms forecast we returned to Chatfield Reservoir for an afternoon session with Bob and Ron. By mid afternoon the storms blew through and the fish started to show. Our efforts were rewarded late afternoon with another new PB mirror for me and the first ever carp for Ron. For just a short session, great results. Hope you Enjoy. John CarpQuest

    Fixed! My father always said 'better do things now than later'. So I did enter my Big4 1-12lb catch, as I believe that it did technically qualify! That would have been a great idea, I love bouillabaisse! But I had some remorse, and I ended up dutifully releasing this baby carp, maybe a tad traumatized by a 'nail biting' experience!
