  3. Date/Time 11/2 7am - 11/4 12pm Location: 30 Main St, Huron, OH 44839 The Over 30 Challenge will occur during this fish-in. See: Details: A 6 foot net handle can be used to net fish but something longer will make it easier. Releasing the fish with a sling and 2 dog leash clips attached to a rope is a good idea, but not absolutely necessary. I will have mine so anyone fishing around me is welcome to use. Many big fish have been caught at this venue. Countless 20's and even a couple over 30. Bring plenty of bait and when you think you have enough, bring more. There is enough room for about 12 people on the grassy area and if more come we can always overflow down the pier. If you do attend please allow 3 "spaces" between the next angler. You'll know what I mean when you arrive. If my calculations were correct it will allow 12 people. There is a Comfort Inn literally 30 seconds from the fishing location or a Motel 6 five minutes away. I've stayed in the Motel 6 twice and have had good experiences. The Motel 6 also has many fast food restaurants around. Staying in a bivvy is at your own risk.
  4. As posted earlier, the Rayland fish-in was moved to Urbana. I arrived Friday around 830am and John showed a little bit thereafter. He managed the first fish within 20 minutes of being in the water which was very surprising. The next fish didn't come for another 4 hours. A few more hit the bank until nightfall and that's when the catch rate was pretty consistent. John and I managed 6-8 fish during the night, but nothing of any size. I woke up around 8am Saturday morning to see Bobby setup down the bank. Sleeping in an overwrapped bivvy didn't exactly let much light in which was nice for sleeping. Bobby had his first fish later in the afternoon around 3pm and then another about an hour later. The wind gradually got stronger and stronger through the day and we were mostly confined to our bivvies. John packed up around 6pm and left Bobby and I to catch all the fish. My biggest of the night came right after John left which weighed in at 18lbs. I probably caught 6 more throughout the night and ended up keeping one rod out. Running outside in 30 degree weather with wind was not that fun. Luckily, I had my Mr Buddy heater to warm me back up before falling asleep. All and all a pretty decent fish-in despite the turnout. We raised $55 dollars for the "Over 30 Challenge" which will carry over to our next fish-in at Huron on November 2nd-4th. Just remember, Craig caught a 30 at Huron last year. Who's coming to take the money? For more information please see: )

  9. After another month of computer issues, editing s/w updates, corrupted templates, I was FINALLY able to get another episode edited and released. So, it's time to sit back, grab an extra HUGE mug of java and watch the show. https://youtu.be/nv1CQwVaGnI An overnight session at Chatfield Reservoir resulted in many common and mirror carp for me, including a great mid 20s mirror just after midnight. James caught consistently throughout the night with some good fish banked. Hope you Enjoy! John CarpQuest

    Carp fishing newbie - any good spots around Fort Worth?

    " But I only know one decent spot, and its full of big commons." Sounds like you already found THE spot! But seriously... there are Carp just in about every creek, lake, pond, etc, you can find in the Ft. Worth area. One of THE best things of beginning Carp fishing is finding out that special place you caught your first bluegill, channel cat, bass, etc, more than likely...also has plenty of Carp to catch! So I would suggest exploring places close to home first (you're only 13.. right?). Chum out a few cans of corn, wait a while, and start fishing.

    Thank you. Not a leather, it has (some) scales on the body, and the upper row of scales is regular size (leather's are really small). Just a very cool mirror. Saved the day. Well, saved the week, in truth...
  12. The 25th Anniversary issue of the NACA is now at the printers! Here's a preview of the cover together with the special 25 anniversary year pin mounted on a presentation card. I'll announce when mailing to CAG members begins in the next couple of weeks. Please note that we use bulk mail so I 'd imagine you should see its arrival before the end of November. >> If you have changed address recently PLEASE be sure to update your address in your member profile! << It's taken a lot more work to source some of the material and images than anticipated... Thanks for your patience everyone!

    Well, not as impressive, but 5 fish in just over two hours, all in mid to upper teens or a 20lbr (sans one that got in the way :)), it was a nice evening for fishing. Tried, and was successful with the green glow corn on the hair....we will see how that plays out over time!......so's a 20-6, 13-6, 16-8, 1-0 and finished with a nice 14lbr. The 13-6 jumped clear of the water 3 times!!- exciting these poor mans tarpon.

    Panko Pack Bait

    I use glycerin, karo syrup, hemp oil, or any other flavored glug and coat the entire pva stick. I am not a fan of the rapid break down. pva bags, also not a big fan. Yea they catch fish and work but I am very picky and don't like the break down of the bag. when nash came out with there micro mesh, it was advertised as a prolonged break down. I did testing and it dissolved fast. Did it in different water temps as well. was told they were looking into another pva mesh. But so far nothing came about. I will only use mesh when I am boilie fishing. I like to grind them up and add it to my mix. when I fish particles, pop ups, south african floaties, puffs, I go straight to my method feeder or just mold my method and or packbait around an inline lead. Its more rapid for me as well.
