  6. I went back on Tuesday for another go... but just after I set up the USCG boat in the background docked above me for the night. Lot of noise from the on board generator. Gave it another hour but no bites.
  7. We are aiming to hold a fish-in for CAG members on Saturday Nov 11th at Harbor Park, Middletown. Details to follow but please let me know who is interested. If there are spaces available then we'll open it up to non members.
  8. Navigating the Forum

    Anyone Navigating the CAG forum might find the following helpful. The "Unread Content" button is probably the most useful... well for me at least! Click on it and it brings up ALL the posts that you have not yet read over the past 365 days... You will then see a page like this... now you can scroll down click on and read any posts that interest you. Just underneath where it says "Unread Content" is a series of headings. If you click on the "V" arrow to the right of each heading (e.g. Following or Time Period) it will give you a series of options that allow you to change how your unread content is organized. Just remember that once you've read an individual post won't appear again in your 'unread content' search again. If you click on 'Read Status' and choose 'Everything' you'll see all the posts arranged by Today, Yesterday, Last Week etc. Any you've already read will appear faded rather than in bold. Another useful 'search' tool is the Activity button. If you are looking to find something you started, posted in or are following then just click on "My Activity Streams". I hope this helps and let me know if you find other useful ways to browse content on the forum!
  9. Water temps were 47-48F (high for this time of year) so I was still hopeful of one or two being caught especially when we saw several fish over the baits late in the pm. I think the sudden cold and high pressure killed it.
  10. A good turnout despite the frigid conditions... sadly the fish didn’t cooperate. A few fish showed but declined to pick up a bait.
  11. So please take note of the parking areas... Parking off Harbor Drive is limited to the small area shown. You can also use the large lot off Melili Plaza. There is an underpass with a ramp that will take you to the park. Please do not use the area next to the Canoe Club Restaurant.
  12. Final count for Saturday Roy Haney Jordan Brown Fran Slasinski Blake Carlson Steve Clow Norman Finke Iain Sorrell Phil Nathan Mike Hudak Jimmy Ayala
  13. The Fishing Factory III in Middletown is offering fish in participants 20% off Carp tackle & bait. Stop by and see them! Saturday 6:00 AM - 4:00 PM Sunday 6:00 AM - 1:00 PM https://maps.google.com/maps?rlz=1CDGOYI_enUS717US717&hl=en-US&um=1&ie=UTF-8&fb=1&gl=us&entry=s&sa=X&ftid=0x89e64a6b43bb84e7:0x12f6a1cdf416843a&gmm=CgIgAQ%3D%3D
  14. Tides for Saturday Nov 11th are as follows: High: 6:59am Low: 2:15pm High: 7:30pm It will be an outgoing tide in the morning and usually that does not fish so well so I would suggest that there is no rush to be there early... how does 9am sound? With no more rain in the forecast I'm hoping that the river flows will continue to drop and be back to near normal by the weekend. We'll limit rods to two per angler to keep things simple and to help minimize crossed lines etc. If you have a long handled net, drop net or other set up for landing fish from the wall (6-8') please bring it! I will post a parking map & directions tomorrow but for those familiar with the venue PLEASE DO NOT park in the area around the Canoe Club Restaurant. This is private parking.
  15. Roy Haney Jordan Brown Fran Slasinski Blake Carlson Steve Clow Norman Finke Iain Sorrell Phil Nathan Mike Hudak Jerome Mosiand We should have room for a couple more... if you cannot make it please let me know so we can offer spaces to others.
  16. I’ll be posting details for the fish in Tuesday.
  17. Cold Fronts in November

    How are the water temperatures? Over 50F and that level of chum should be fine. In New England they are way above average and hopefully we’ll be fishing well in to December this year.
  18. So far we have... Roy Haney Jordan Brown Fran Slasinski Blake Carlson Steve Clow Norman Finke Iain Sorrell I have a couple more who are waiting to confirm...

  21. I'm delighted to announce that the CAG BOD has voted to create this new director position and that Phil Nathan has been accepted to take on this critical position. CAG Events Director A) Responsible for organizing and coordinating key annual CAG & other related events B ) Will ensure key people, as needed, are available to run such events and will monitor their progress and outcomes. C) Shall ensure such events are added to the CAG calendar in good time, well promoted & supported, prizes & trophies available, provided updates on outcomes featured via the CAG Forum, social and other forms of media.
  22. Like any body of water it is all about location. I would spend some time looking for signs of fish (early morning or evening is best) before even taking the rods out. Check out likely areas where there are river or stream inlets or outlets, bays or areas with structure. Wind and sub surface currents will play a major factor. A windward shore may reap rewards as it usually brings food and warmer water. The more you break it down into smaller segments the less overwhelming it will seem and the more you will see the opportunities.
  23. This was announced as part of the CAG Plenary Meeting minutes back in 2016 and posted by Jerome on the Public Announcements. The 2016 Champion of the Queen was awarded to Jo Ann Roberts for her extraordinary decade of work with young carp anglers at the St Lawrence Junior Tournament. She is the first woman (and first of many we hope) to win our most prestigious CAG award. Here she is with president Bob Giordano. Here is the Press Release: CARP ANGLERS GROUP NAMES FIRST WOMAN “CHAMPION OF THE QUEEN” CANTON — For the first time in its 23-year history, the national Carp Anglers Group (CAG) has given its highest award to a woman: Jo Ann Roberts of the St. Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce. Roberts was selected for CAG’s 2016 “Champion of the Queen” honor because she has been a champion of the annual St. Lawrence International Junior Carp Tournament for nearly 10 years. Since joining the County Chamber in 2007 as its events coordinator, she has been the primary force behind the local carp tournament for boys and girls. “Jo Ann is very deserving of this award,” CAG President and local carp angler Bob Giordano said. “She has been dedicated to the Junior Carp Tournament, the biggest contest in the country for young carp anglers, and a great promoter of catch-and-release carp angling on the St. Lawrence River, one of North America’s premier carp fisheries.” Giordano said that the vote for this year’s Champion of Queen award was announced at CAG’s annual meeting, shortly before the Junior Carp Tournament in August. “We had multiple nominations” he said. “Jo Ann was the unanimous choice.” The award is named for the carp’s worldwide status as “queen of the river.” Roberts was surprised with the honor at the closing ceremonies for the 2016 Junior Carp Tournament. She planned those closing ceremonies, as she has done for several years now. From registering participants to lining up sponsors to ordering participant t-shirts, Roberts has been responsible for coordinating all aspects of the annual tournament. Local CAG members have been integral volunteers with the tournament, and in 2015 CAG officially partnered with the County Chamber to manage the event and promote it to their members and beyond. “It’s always been one of my favorite events,” Roberts said. “The tournament gets families and kids out from behind computers and into the great outdoors along the St. Lawrence. It’s wonderful to see kids forming friendships, and learning to appreciate the fish and the river.” The tournament is open to boys and girls ages 11 to 18, and Roberts has met and followed young anglers and their families over the years. “I’ve known many of them from the first year they fished until they ‘age out’ at 18,” she said. “It is so rewarding to see these kids grow up. I love it.”
  24. Champion of the Queen – 2017 This year’s recipient is Dave Pickering. Dave has exemplified the Objectives of CAG in every way. As the State Chair for Rhode Island for the past 10 years Dave has demonstrated exactly what it takes to grow membership, run fish-in’s and perhaps most importantly teach people about the joy of carp fishing. He gives talks at sportsman’s shows, is a renowned freelance writer and member of the New England Outdoors Writer’s Association (NEOWA) and has also appeared with On The Water TV. Dave is also the CAG Secretary and as an active CAG director has given countless hours of this time to supporting the organization & its obejctives. As an angler Dave has captured some remarkable sized carp over the past 25 year and since retirement averages 1000 a year (including 1300 carp in 2015!) As an all around angler Dave also manages to fish for a wide range of species in both fresh and saltwater. You can follow Dave on his blog: http://ricarpfishing.blogspot.com/ Dave with a 36lb common from Rhode Island On The Water TV http://www.onthewater.com/video/water-tv-blackstone-river-valley-monster-mirror-carp/
