    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?

    Simple tactics with method, pack or feeder & sweetcorn on the hook have worked very well for me over the years.

    Hi Dane, Looks like you are on the leader board. So you should be all set?

    Adjustable Zig Rigs-Tips Needed.

    Straight black or red foam has worked best for me so far & fished to within 2’ of the surface.

    What wrong with this buffalo?

    How big was the fish? I wonder if it could be a lamprey scar? Odd that it should be on the head or gill plate rather than a softer tissue area.

    NECC - Thank you!

    This years North East Carp Conference (NECC) was, by all accounts, deemed to be bigger and better than ever. There are of course a lot of folk to thank for helping make the NECC such a great event. Thank you to our speakers Joe Arvizzigno, Attila Agh, Dave Pickering & Blake Carlson for the excellent presentations. They were not only thought provoking but also entertaining. A special thanks to Peter Aarrestad, Director of Inland Fisheries for his update on the fishing in Connecticut and his continued support to help grow Trophy carp fishing here in Connecticut. Frank Warwick and Mark Pitchers thank you for taking the time to join us by the live link. I’m only sorry that the connection issues we suffered did not allow us to see you as well as hear you. We’ll do better next year! A very big thank you to our vendors especially those of you who drove hundreds & even thousands of miles. You all helped make the NECC THE place to be and to come see the very latest and best in bait and tackle as well as THE place to support all your customers carpy needs for the coming season! A special thank you to all our sponsors who provided the fabulous prizes for the raffle. We could not do this without your generosity. As a not-for-profit organization CAG relies on much needed funding we raise at such events to help support the CAG mission and to continue developing & promoting carp fishing in North America. My fellow Board and CAG members thank you! Barry Howard for handling entry and membership, bringing & setting up the CAG Store and Bob Hall for running the store and selling SO MANY raffle tickets. Dean Brookes & Steve Clow for all your help and Phil Nathan who’s remarkable eye for detail and getting things done proved invaluable. Thank you to our friends at the Elks Club who once again provided a great venue and kept everyone well fed and watered! My wife and daughter deserve a very special thank you for not only putting up with me over the recent weeks but after both being quite unwell for the past couple of weeks still managed to come and lend a hand on the day… although the Mrs is now sick again. And of course, last but not least, thanks to all of you who came along and made this such a great event. One of the key aims of the Carp Anglers Group and the NECC is to bring everyone together so we can share in our passion for carp angling. It was well worth all the effort to see so many folk enjoying themselves with friends old and new. Thank you everyone for your kind comments and messages. See you all next year!
