    CAG Spring Big 4 2018 The RULES

    Er, could we get an answer to this question? I'm going to travel, I have no idea if I'm going to cross a section boundary or something. Also, I don't see anything about the awards, the prizes, etc.

    Amazing!! That is quite the monster. Bigger than my own PB Grasser by a solid 10 pounds. GIANT CONGRATULATIONS, you must be over the moon!

    Frenemies - 15 Apr

    Five years later, still cracks me up. Thank you for sharing. Franklin is smiling.

    So, so sorry to hear that. I always enjoyed your posts about your 'rivalry', Craig. You guys had a wonderful (and entertaining) friendship.
  5. We had a few really cold & harsh ones, I am no stranger to nets and fishing lines freezing up, or hot spot at midnight found frozen solid later in the morning, but I agree with you, this was undoubtedly the coldest ever.
  6. The three of you guys have an A+ for effort (fishing-wise and writing-wise)!! I really enjoyed reading all stories. Thank you for sharing.
  7. You have quite a cool brother! This sand sculpture is fantastic!
  8. PS. in MA, it is currently 6 degrees. Goes straight in the negative if you account for the 10/15mph wind chill. I don't think there is a lot of clear water right now! LOL
  9. A new PB on January 1st? That's a really cool story! Well done!

    As your new President - Thank you!

    I wish you (and CAG) good luck. Big task ahead.
  11. I'll issue a better formatted post later on, but here is a snapshot of the leaderboard, sorted by Big4 combined weight. Click on the image to see a larger version. Well, it seems that I won a few prizes! As to the big mirror, it was won by Craig Welch with a beautiful 30-9lb fully scaled. Congratulations to all participants!

    CAG Big 4 Results - Fall 2017

    Thinking more about it, there is a little something I could easily do. I forwarded to NACA editor the pics from contestants I received by e-mail (folks having troubles with PNG to JPG conversion). Who happen to be #3 and #4 in the ranking. So Todd, if you could please send your own best pic (in high resolution) to the NACA editor, I think we'll be all set.

    CAG Big 4 Results - Fall 2017

    Todd, I hear you, and yes, the Leaderboard had issues this year, and Willem has been a bit stumped about the root cause of the problem. As an admin, I could access the leaderboard while being able to see the (compressed) pics and sort by columns, but as a regular user, I had the same "loading" issue as you did. I just don't know how to address your request, except ask the contestants to post their own pics in the bragging thread, and/or to send their favorite pic to the NACA editor, as suggested in the previous post.

    CAG Big 4 Results - Fall 2017

    The pics on the leaderboard are compressed to a very small size, and I don't have access to the originals. You're welcome to post on the 'bragging thread'. Oh wait, you did! ;-)

    CAG Big 4 Results - Fall 2017

    LOL, and here I was hoping to get all the credit... Just kidding. Yes, Frank, you'll get full credit in the coming NACA, I just sent the corresponding write-up to Iain. Many thanks for your help, this design was really cool.

    CAG Big 4 Results - Fall 2017

    The BCT account of all winners should have been credited by the proper amount by now, according to the prize list documented in this post: http://www.carpanglersgroup.com/forum/index.php?/topic/57779-cag-big-4-prizes-fall-2017/&do=findComment&comment=731250 If you notice anything strange, or didn't receive an e-mail notice from BCT, please let me know.

    FFF 2018 - Contest Categories and Prizes

    Can't do it this year, due to a conflict with a planned celebration for my wife's birthday (yup, a round number), but I wish good luck to you all. You're in good hands with Frank as organizer extraordinaire.

    CAG Big 4 Results - Fall 2017

    By the way, I just figured out that Craig Welch wrote a great article on his session at Dale Hollow where he landed most of the fish that made up his impressive score. A truly excellent read.
  21. Feel free to brag on this thread with the big ones you landed during the Big4 Fall 2017 event...

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. Any number of fish can be added, but only the bigger ones count. Submissions must include 1 photo- -a trophy photo of the fish with angler, the scale used and a printed Big Four Logo shown below All submissions must be made by Nov 15th (11.59pm) Fish must be caught on rod using legal methods and be released safely Live leader board will be displayed on the home page from Oct 1st through Nov 15th Corresponding stories in the forum are encouraged and will be linked to the leader board Catches logged at any other event will count, but all event requirements above must still be fulfilled FISH SUBMISSIONS Please make sure you are registered on the New CAG Leader-board. You only have to register ONCE, if you've already registered, let's 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 Any questions, e-mail Willem @ BIG4@JOINCAG.COM The Logo The logo will be posted in a separate thread. 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!

    Young fellow, it seems to me that you should write an article for a carp magazine... Not only did you catch amazing fish, but you also write well... If interested, send an e-mail to naca@carpanglersgroup.com...
