    Fall Big 4 2018 - Proposal

    Sounds like a plan to me. That would basically expand our popular Big 4 event to 3 tournaments which I think is a good thing!

    Fall Big 4 2018 - Proposal

    I see a compromise here. How about running this for 2 months.....Oct./Nov. in the fall and May/June in the spring. The problem we have in the northeast is nasty weather in Dec. and nasty weather in early April. In some years, parts of both months are not fishable.

    Catching Carp In The Charles River This Weekend

    Very impressive video, and a real nice common that you landed. You are on your way and I see a 30 lber in your future! Keep up the great fishing.

    Big 4 rules

    The Spring Big 4 is one of our signature tournaments. If we were going to make big changes (as we did in 2018) on how things were going to run as well as the outcome (winners and prizes), it should have been addressed beforehand on this Forum with the members. The BOD should have also discussed these changes and approved/disapporoved of them before the Spring Big 4 was held.

    Big 4 rules

    I also did not like the regional aspect of this tournament. That tends to work when you have equal number of entrants from each zone. If you look at the list of entrants at least half were from the northeast zone. Some zones had almost no one. So, no question, the NE guys were at a big disadvantage. I agree with Dave on this point. And only one winner from each zone. Come on man. The BOD discussed this several years back when numbers were way down in the tournament, and we decided to up the number of winners to get more participation. That was the policy we adopted. At the time we decided to award the top ten finishers and this happened several years in a row. I assumed this would happen again this year. And, we had no idea of the number of winners or the prizes until after the tournament was over. This should have been all set up and explained beforehand just like what is done in the FFF. I'm sure this will affect how many enter the Fall Big 4 unless it changes. By the way, I do think this is all a good idea to get input from members as to what they think about how things run. Sometimes, we, as the BOD tend to act on our own as was done here and maybe it is not what the members want. I, too, would like to see input on this from all who entered so we can better serve you next time.
  9. Rex, some nice fish posted. You will find that the Blackstone has many surprises. I have caught a lot of bullhead or horned pout there, but I have also caught large white catfish, hybrid goldfish and even a pike while fishing for carp in the river.

    CAG Spring Big 4 2018 The RULES

    One issue that I see is that on the leaderboard there are several people who are entering fish but not indicating their location or region. Shouldn't that be a requirement since this is a regional event?

    Wow, terrific fish. Congrats.

    OK, been trying like a son of a gun to get a big mirror. It happened today with this gorgeous 31 lb., 8 oz. fully scaled beauty. Ah, persistence (with a little luck) pays off!

    Picture Submissions to big 4

    I'm guessing your pics should have been reduced as you suggested. This has been a problem in the past. Reducing to 640 wide should work. Noticed most of the photos downloaded to the leaderboard did not work. Maybe this should have been explained ahead of time.....
