  1. TROPHIES FOR ALL JOLIET TOURNAMENT CHAMPIONS I've decided to award trophies to the Big 4 Champions of the following carp tournaments in Joliet: October 28, 2017 November 11, 2017 November 25, 2017 December 9, 2017 December 31, 2017 - January 1, 2018 The usual medals will be awarded to the 2nd and 3rd place Big 4 winners, to the 1st and 2nd place Most Carp winners, and to the Specialty Event winner. The first Championship trophy for October 28 is the smallest of the bunch, but it might be the nicest of the group. It's a 6", all metal, carp-themed trophy from the U.K. A metal plate indicating you are the 10/28/17 Big 4 Champion along with the tournament name, date, and place will be installed prior to the event. Good luck! --Frank Rink, Joliet Fall 40's Tournaments organizer
  2. Tracy Jourdan is in. Thanks, Tracy! We are now full for October 28 as Tracy's entry competes the field of 16.

Participants, so far:Anthony HartungChad BettischCory BohmannEmilio Montoya Mike Sabia Chuck Ferczok Ronnie Harding Radu Volintir Mike Olinger Jeff Conroy Walter Wheeler Michael Zemeckis Victor Zemeckis Justin Von Hinkeldey Tracy JourdanFrank Rink The field is full and entries are now closed.
  3. BIG 4 Fall 2017 - Bragging Thread

    Nice job, Jerome. You pretty much killed any more registrations in the Big 4 contest with those catches. Just kidding. Those achievements will be motivating factors for those in your neck of the woods and in the south. I also know of a few midstate Illinois anglers going to Dale Hollow in a month and they'll be doing their best to catch you. Nice work in setting a high bar early! --Frank p.s. Don't blame the photographer for making that 38 pounder look like a mid-20. Knowing how to hold and position those fish plays a big part in providing an accurate depiction .
  4. BIG 4 Fall 2017 - Bragging Thread

    My meager Big 4 catches will be inconsequential within the next couple of days or hours, but I always like to try to get something on the board early to . . . . . . 1. help motivate more entries into the CAG Big 4. . . . 2. help motivate CAG anglers to get out there and fish. . . . 3. help enhance awareness that CAG’s Big 4 event has begun! Registration runs to October 15. Calendar parameters for fishing are from now until November 15. Are you in? Thanks for your consideration! —Frank No matter what the size, my October 1catches are on the CAG Big 4 Board with a 10-0, 10-1, and 7-6 caught at the Chicago River. They won't even come close to denting the Big 4 contest when it's all said and done, but the early pre-8:00 a.m. catches on the first day of the event were fun. p.s. Don't forget that photos of you and your carp must include your scale and the 2017 Big 4 Logo (downloadable on the CAG forum).
  5. Justin--You have signed up for one or more of my events and never showed up. If you are unable to attend, please let me know asap, so I can open a slot for the angler next on a potential waiting list. Much appreciated. Thanks for your interest. Justin Von Hinkeldey is in!

  6. OFFICIAL 2017 FALL BIG4 LOGO

    Thanks, Willem. Nice work! - Frank
  7. Larry Seeman and Connor Reno will be unable to attend, but that still puts us at 14. I'm going to cap this event at 16, so most have a decent shot at an end or bridge or close to it. Pegs 1 and 2 at Jackson (slip) will be open! Two angler openings remain! Good luck!
  8. Victor Zemeckis is in! Thanks, Victor! Participants, so far:Anthony HartungChad BettischCory BohmannEmilio Montoya Mike Sabia Chuck Ferczok Ronnie Harding Radu Volintir Mike Olinger Jeff Conroy Walter Wheeler Michael Zemeckis Victor ZemeckisFrank Rink
  9. To plan for a short, but early, Big 4 session on 10/1/17, I was wondering if someone in the know can indicate at what time the logo will be available for download. Thanks! --Frank
