  1. I still have my CCC section win trophy from... oh god... 15 years ago or so? I got lucky at the peg draw, an end swim at the Des Plaines river definitely helped! Good luck to everybody, and many thanks to Chad for organizing the event this year. A seed planted a while ago did work! 😉
  2. I don't drink cheap beer... only expensive wine... 😉 Will give you tips by PM. For free.
  3. Here is another VERY unusual catch from yesterday... I was exploring a new lake, found a nice spot, I was doing some plumbing with my regular carp rig (3oz inline lead, size 6 hook), I didn't have anything on the hook, I reeled in and I felt a fish... HUH? Turned out to be a small pickerel! It probably went after the lead and somehow found the hook! Now that is a first for me!
  4. Even the fish looks proud of himself! Terrific!! PS. Darn it! You just kicked me out of the top-10... Intolerable!
  5. Ah, June 29th & 30th... I am actually going to Syracuse to help with their kids event (same week-end): https://www.facebook.com/events/1063185713882344/ I wish you luck, you're doing a good thing here. You may want to communicate on Facebook about this, on the CAG page.
  6. Hey Sam, I don't think I'll be able to make it due to other constraints, but very good of you to do so. Just to better understand (and maybe plan for next year), would you mind explaining a bit more what the event is made of? And what you expect the helpers to do?
  7. A brace of 30s? Very cool!
  8. I've seen a few fish like that, and I am pretty sure this is some sort of skin infection. I wouldn't touch such fish with my bare hands, quite frankly.
  9. Caught a nice thick one tonight... 29-12. Made my day.
  10. The rowing boat snuck on me (they really don't make much noise!) while I was deep in a book, and somehow my line got caught under the boat (and triggered my alarm!), so I had to reel in the whole thing (boat and girls!) to untangle the mess... Powerpro rules, I didn't break my line, nor lost my rig! And I released the slightly flustered girls (and the boat!)...
  11. I like a big fat wallet... Ladies... This is a family forum, I can't really elaborate, but let's just say this is a bit different..
  12. Yeah, well, my Big4 score so far isn't exactly 'legend worthy', LOL. But yes, I'll be happy to fish with you at some point. Don't hesitate to nag me by PM.
  13. A walleye, now that's a first. Very cool. So here is your new challenge. One day, I caught a wallet (with a couple of credit cards!). Another day, I caught a bra (I kid you not!). Oh, and yet another day, I reeled in a rowing boat with two pretty athletic girls on top. Money and ladies and fishing, plenty enough to make a man happy... Let's see if you can match that... 😉
  14. Oh boy. That is the next cover for the NACA, no doubt. Amazing!! Monster congratulations !!!
  15. A rather stunning 21lber I landed earlier today. Made my day! Incredible colors!
  16. Actually... it is indeed fed by a surprisingly small stream a couple of miles upstream... This being said, in French, ‘affluent’ can mean a fairly large tributary (for obvious reasons!)... and since the fancy words in English were usually ‘borrowed’ from French...
  17. Er, no... Do I really need to teach you some English? 😂 https://www.dictionary.com/browse/affluent noun 4. a tributary stream.
  18. This was in an affluent of the Potomac river.
  19. PS. the pic of the 30lb isn't too good, two very 'high' ladies took the picture, I was happy enough to see that they included all the required elements and didn't push it, LOL...
  20. Totally unexpected 30 pounder at the very end of the day (quickly followed by a fat 13lb blue cat!)...
  21. Sounds good, but then the rule that we shouldn't upload more than the 4 biggest fish on the leaderboard needs to be tuned a bit. Example: if one catches two 40s in March (you wish!), four 30s in April, four 20s in May, one will need to keep all those fish in there to compete for both overall event and the monthly prizes... Maybe the rule should be reworded as "don't create more than 4 new entries per month", or something like that.
  22. Young Ryan and his mom were STOKED when I sent them a link to the online magazine today (cf. pic on page 23)... Cool.
  23. I do appreciate (and agree with) the intent of this rule, but 24 hours is a little harsh. When traveling around, you often hit areas where proper Internet access (allowing to upload pictures) is hard to get. Some folks fishing big reservoirs for several days in a row (Dale Hollow comes to mind) may not have any access at all. Etc. Maybe relax a bit this rule? I'd suggest to play a bit on 'should' vs 'must', e.g. Captures SHOULD be reported within 48 hours of capture. They MUST be reported within one week of capture.
