  1. NECC - Fish In Update

    Update on Fish-In for Sunday April 22nnd... Option B it is! The weather has caught us out once again! I looked at the CT River in Middletown today and I think we'd struggle to hold bottom even with a boat anchor! Batterson Park Pond is just off Rt 9 and Interstate 84. We'll meet at the Boat Ramp (see mark on attached map) just off Alexander Road. Easiest access is off Exit 37 from I-84. Come down and hang out, fish, cast some rods or perhaps bring any tackle or bait items you might want to swap out. Anytime from first light onwards.

  8. In Fisherman February 1995 'America's Greatest Sportfish! View File In Fisherman Editor-in-Chief, Doug Stange, wrote this article around his trip to fish 130,000 acre Mille Lacs Lake in Minnesota with UK legends Bob Roberts & Peter Clapperton. It foretells much of what has now happened in the development of USA carp fishing and also of what has yet still to come. Doug has given his permission for us to share this with our CAG members in honor of our 25 year anniversary. Enjoy! Submitter (CT) Savayman Submitted 04/04/2018 Category General

  13. CT Trophy Carp Regs - Urgent Update!

    I’ll be providing an update end of this week on the next steps we need to take. Still not letting this go through without a fight!
  14. CT Trophy Carp Regs - Urgent Update!

    Exception to bow fishing attached to HB #5360
  15. Trophy Carp Regulations update! Please visit: https://www.cga.ct.gov/asp/menu/CommDocTmyBillAllComm.asp?bill=HB-05360&doc_year=2018 If you submitted testimony please check to see if it was added. If not please send and an email as follows: Please send you email to: envtestimony@cga.ct.gov Subject line: HB 5360 exceptions to Trophy Carp Regulations I am against the exceptions for bow fishing introduced and added to HB 5360, especially for the Connecticut River & its Coves. As a catch & release angler I fully support and endorse the legislation to create Trophy Carp Waters and Creel Limits for common carp. The Connecticut river offers an exceptional opportunity to create a trophy carp water without impacting other fish species or the water quality. As noted by DEEP Fisheries scientists common carp rarely, if ever, pose any issues to water quality in Connecticut & surrounding New England states. Since their introduction in the 1800’s common carp have become naturalized and their spawn and fry provide exceptional food resources for other fish and wildlife. Where you find big carp you invariably find big bass, walleye, pike, perch and other species. The killing of many hundreds of trophy carp by bow fishers during the spawn is not only highly detrimental to creating a trophy carp fishery but has been documented to result in potential problems due to an increased biomass of smaller carp. The rapid growth in catch and release trophy carp fishing and the creation of Trophy carp waters, especially the CT River, is of significant economic importance to Connecticut. <Your Name , State> Please indicate if you travel to carp fish in CT?
