  1. SOUND OFF if your a carper in MO-KS-OK-AR

    I am in Illinois, but only an hour from St. Louis. If you guys in MO start having tournaments or Fish-Ins, let me know. Contact me on Facebook as Paul Zucca-Scott.
  2. Carp "calming???"

    Yes, it works for any animal, but it does not mean they will not start flopping again or try to get away on you. Some guys say you can pinch the lower lip, but I am more concern about not touching the gills, and supporting the internal organs as best as possible. Really big fish probably should not be lifted at all to be honest because air cannot support the internal organs like water can. Gravity is different for a fish out of water. Also, keeping something soft under the fish while you hold it is a must. Last, be sure not to touch the gills because this can damage them or cause disease. But, yes, it does seem to help.
  3. Lincoln Park Rowing Canal NO FISHING?

    There was always the issue with rowers there. Probably someone complained about the carp anglers' lines being in the way or something.
  4. My phone number is (217) 556-8674.

    Thanks, Paul Scott

  5. Hotel is paid!!! I am coming for sure. I am assuming we will be meeting in the parking lot where we normally meet. If anything changes, please call me. I will send you my number Larry. Thanks. Paul Scott
  6. Sign me up too! Paul Scott! Just checking... This is a one day event, right? Anything counts, not just carp...Is that right?
  7. Our heart goes out to Sam's family. Laura and I really liked him, and he will be greatly missed.
  8. I would like to be put on the list to fish this tournament. Paul Scott
  9. Good ideas, I will make sure to brush up on the current World and IL State Records data. I tried this in Springfield, but only had a few people stop by for the official event, so this is going to be less formal. At that time, I was sponsored by Marukyu Baits (Japan), and they paid for the free bait. This time, I am going to give away some stuff I purchased myself for the prize. This lake is full of carp, and we did see some high teens flopping when we visited it. At the time, I did not have my fishing gear with me. I have heard stories of some real beast in the 3,000 year old natural lake. My understanding is that everything and anything that exists in the river also exists in the lake. The lake is located just East of St. Louis. There is camping right on the lake, but I am not sure you can fish the lake after dark except maybe from the camping area. There is probably motels and hotels near by too. Might be worth the trip, and then again it might not. Well, we will be out there Saturday the 23rd, if anyone is interested. Paul Scott
  10. Basically, if you go to the Central Illinois Fishing Club page on Facebook, you can see more details. Paul Scott and Dr. Laura Zucca-Scott will be hosting a carp clinic/Fish-in on Horseshoe Lake. I will be posting the exact location for this event sometime next week. We have never fished this lake before, so we will be scouting the lake for possible locations to fish next weekend. Here is the schedule: May 22nd (Friday), Laura and I will scouting the lake for possible places to fish. We probably will also be fishing and chumming. May 23rd (Saturday), Laura and I will be hosting the Clinic/Fish-in at Horseshoe Lake from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. This is not an official event, but rather just an invite to anyone interested in coming out and fishing the lake with us. At 10 am, I will be making a method bait in front of everyone, so everyone can see how it is made. After the bait is made, I will be giving a brief seminar on carp basics 101 of the tackle and equipment that I am using. Anyone who wants to take part in the seminar is welcome to speak or do some show and tell; I do not mind sharing the spotlight. We have not had much success with these things, so I am not expecting much of a turnout. There will be a bait prize package for the angler who catches the largest carp, buffalo, grass carp, or Asian carp on the day. On the CIFG Facebook page, I have asked anglers to bring basic rod and reel combos, dough baits, four cans of corn, rod holders, scales, cameras, and something padded to place their carp on instead of the ground. I am not going to be promoting anything, but carp fishing, so if someone wanted to come join us and try to sign up new members for CAG that would be fine. This is in no way an official event of any kind. I will tell you what I have told the anglers on the Central Illinois Fishing Group Facebook page, you fish and travel at your own risk. Laura and I are simply inviting anglers out to fish with us, but we are not responsible for any mishaps you might encounter. Hopefully, God willing, there will be no problems for anyone. So, this is basically an invite to come fish with us rather you call it a Clinic, Fish-in, or just a day of fishing is up to you.
  11. Results for "5 Bridge"

    So, who won?
  12. Dale Hollow Lake is where everyone goes to fish for carp in Tennessee too.
  13. I imagine everyone will start posting their events sometime by the end of February, but normally there is a lot more activity than what I am seeing. Has anyone heard any rumors or knows about any new carp fishing leagues or carp tournaments that are being planned for 2015?
  14. Kingston, Tennessee, I think. It has been awhile. I am not sure what river it was on though. I think we were near the I-40 bridge, but it has been awhile. I do remember there were several signs warning against Radiation poisoning. It is not far from where they destroyed an entire town to test an Atomic Bomb in the 40's or 50's. Our host had a whole story about it. He used to own K-1 baits, but I forget his name now. He was the guy who started the company.
