  1. Thank You

    As you may know I have been fighting a long illness. What started as a simple surgery turned into a long battle with sepsis and a knee replacement. I have done what I could but it is now time for me to step down to make way for a new leader. It has been my honor to serve as CAG's President and I want to thank all of you for the support and best wishes while I was sick. It is now time for CAG to select a new President to lead us into the future. Over the next few weeks we will be looking for candidates to fill this role. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at (315) 323-4632. The pay for the job is not very good but the rewards are great. You can help grow our sport, introduce kids to fishing and work with state officials to protect the fish we love so much! You will also get the chance to work side by side with a great group of guys on the BOD. They all work extremely hard behind the scenes to make this group function. I owe so much to all of them. I want to publicly thank our VP Iain Sorrell for his leadership during my illness. He has done a fantastic job for all of us. In closing, I want to say I have had many opportunities to volunteer in this great organization. I was a State Chair for MA, NY, CO and eventually became the Director of State Chairs. A few years ago I got the privilege to serve as our President. Each position was unique and presented its own challenges but they were all extremely rewarding. I now ask all of you to please consider becoming a volunteer. The future of our organization depends on you! Sincerely, Bob Giordano (AF Bob)
  2. We are very excited to announce the CAG Spring Big 4 contest. Please go to the 2017 Big 4 thread to get contest rules and information. The contest will run May 1, 2017 thru June 15, 2017. We are now working with our sponsors to line up some great prizes which will be announced shortly. I wanted to thank Barry Howard for stepping up to make sure this great contest continues! We know that all of us have a choice when spending our money on carp gear and tackle. So please support the people that support CAG and our events! Thanks AF Bob
  3. Rules Registration is open from April 15th until Midnight May 15thSpring Big 4 Competition runs from May 1st through June 15th 2017Must be a CAG Member to participateCost: $10Only Common Carp, Cyprinus Carpio, Count for Big 4 Total, Big Mirror & Big Common Anglers can fish any combination of legal waters anywhere in North America Anglers must register and manage their own catches and photos in our online leader board - Follow instructions posted under the leaderboard topic in this section.

You only have to register ONCE, if you've already registered, lets say for the ATC, then all you need to do is Log in and add the Big 4 event to your name. Instructions on how to use the leader-board can be downloaded here: Leaderboard Instructions.pdf Any questions, e-mail Willem @ BIG4@JOINCAG.COM The Logo You are required to submit 1 photo of each fish you catch along with it's weight. This photo MUST show the angler holding the fish, a printed 2017 Sprin Big 4 logo, and your scale. Remember, the star of these photos is you with your fish. Your photo may end up in a magazine! The logo and scale just need to be there somewhere to prove you have them. They can be anywhere in the photo as long as they are identifiable. The best way to manage this is to tape the logo to your scale: The Big 4 Logo is only 3.75 x 2.75." This is the size of many state/provincial fishing and hunting licenses. You can Also put your logo in a standard license holder from any tackle shop, and pin it on your clothes, or even your unhooking mat. Just try not to put the logo in your mouth, that's not going to look good in a magazine!
