    2018 CCC Rules

    Good questions Mike. On the wading question I think the highlighted text in rule 9 covers that point? If there is an obvious risk to the fish then wading to net a fish in shallow water is certainly allowed. 9. No boats, bait-boats or wading, use of floatation devices or swimming (except in an emergency!); fishing from the shoreline only. Exception – an angler can enter the water by authorization from a Weigh Offficial or Angler at the next peg, to free a fish caught in a snag, weed or otherwise in distress or possible danger. Please ensure that you receive a verbal authorization from the Angler at the next peg or Official present before you enter the water. On point 2). You are not allowed to throw your chum in another persons peg. There are plenty of ways to ensure your 'chum' reaches the bottom within the confines of your pegged area. Pack or method around the lead or hook bait, bait dropper devices, PVA bags etc.

Peg draw will be October 10th (location TBD) and awards ceremony will be October 14th (Middletown Elks Club). https://www.facebook.com/groups/313001709231412/about/ This tournament will be similar to the tourneys that were held in 2015 & 2016 with some minor adjustments. It will remain a Big Fish, Big 4, and Big Mirror tournament. Massive prize pools, $25,000 jackpot prize for establishing a new CT State Record Carp, double peg draw format, and hosted during the peak New England foliage time when carp are feeding hard! This tournament needs 40 anglers minimum for it to go off and provide the currently established prize pool. But ready for the rich part? Every angler who registers over the minimum then their entry money will be divided up 100% back into the big fish & big 4 payout categories. Don't hesitate to sign up! To sign up either go in person to Fishin' Factory 3 in Middletown, CT (forms available sun 5/20) or fill out the registration form and mail with your payment to address on form. Cost is $400/angler and anglers can fish solo or in teams of 2. Runners are optional (and free) and they will be limited to only spombing, checking depths, netting fish, and campsite duties (they cannot partake in the fishing). Proper carp care is required and local fishing licenses are required. For all your carp angling needs and for fishing licenses please stop by Fishing Factory 3! We hope to see everyone there! Please stay tuned for updates on ceremony venues, prizes, updated payout schedule after 40 anglers enter, etc. For registration forms and rules sheets please visit the "files" tab on this group.

    Big 4 rules

    Please keep the feedback coming. The aim of creating regions for 2018 was to encourage more interest from other parts of the USA. I think you also have to ask the question as to why so few folk enter from other parts of the USA? There has been a lot of discussion over the years about how the Big 4 is biased towards certain areas (like New England, PA or Michigan). If you take a look at the top 3 weights or the top 10 winners for the last 5 years you'll see that is very much the case. Spring Big 4 Results 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018 First 170.11 129.13 120.12 162.09 138.10 Second 154.04 127.15 106.04 135.06 136.06 Third 143.04 122.13 106.02 129.03 122.15 Big Fish 56.04 36.10 37.00 48.04 39.05 Big Mirror 40.02 30.01 37.00 48.04 39.05

    Big 4 rules

    Perhaps I’m missing your point regarding the Big 4 Rules and the Zones this year. Are you saying you think the ‘zoning’ limits your ability to travel in order to catch big fish?
