  1. Yes you are registered. Good luck!
  2. What's your last name?
  3. Here is an interesting perspective on the Round Gobies https://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/27/us/27cncgoby.html There are also claims that the common carp have started eating them
  4. It is a great experience and if you go you will meet some wonderful people. I attended my first in 1996 and still have many friends from that first CCC
  5. More Prizes Added! The revolutionary Top-Baiter that delivers pellets or 'slop' right next to your hook bait for optimum surface and top water presentations See the Top-Baiter in Action!
  6. It largely depends on the number of carp in the lake but one or two gallons twice a week should keep them coming back for more. Try and bait the same time on each visit that way you'll be able to see if they are feeding when you get there.
  7. Check received for her entry

  10. This weekend Saturday June 29th 2019 - CAG Social Thomas Bull, NY This social will be held on a NY free fishing day. That means no fishing license is required for anyone from anywhere. That being said it is a great opportunity to get people from everywhere together to wet some lines and teach the youngsters a thing or 2. The venue is just a few miles off I-84 in the town of Montgomery NY 38 min from PA & NJ and 50 min from CT. This social is aimed towards introducing the next generation of carp anglers to the sport and or helping them hone in on there skills. Bring your kids and their friends. We would prefer if you brought you own bait and tackle and maybe an extra pole or 2 if you could, but if you don't have the proper gear don't worry we will get you set up. This park lake was stocked with Mirror carp some time ago. It is believed that there are mirrors up to 20lb but the majority of the stock are in the 5-12 lb range. The fish see bread often from people feeding the birds and do respond to corn and other hook baits. I hope to see some of you there. Tight lines until then. Johnny Jackets
  11. Not sure if you want to splash out on a guide but might be easiest way to get on some fish. http://freshwaterphil.com/carp-fishing-guide.cfm Basically its the St Larry so if you can find river access you stand a good chance, same tactics as the CT River will work.
