  1. Thanks, yes love the fantails!! I'm sure Carl and Alex will show us some skills!
  2. I thought id share a few of the better fish I've had this year as i don't post on the CAG forums as much as id like to, Ive been more on Facebook the last two years. I still fish as much if not more than i used to when i was still posting on here, most of it just goes on Facebook. Id like to change that though and get back on here again as well. Also Brendan, former CAG president Andy Sprinkle, and myself have started up a bait company named Trilogy Baits. We sell all kinds of Particles, Flavors, Methods and Packbaits, Ingredients, and tackle items as well. So we are looking forward to finding where this new venture takes us. If anyone would like to check us out here is a link to our website http://www.trilogycarpbaits.com. A few of the better fish I've had this year, sorry kinda picture heavy. 32lb+ 31lb+ 29lb+ 28lb+ 27lb+ 27lb+ Did not weigh this fish, guessing around the 27lb to 28lb mark 26lb+ 26lb+ 24lb+ 24lb+ Don't know the weights of a couple of the mirrors, did not weigh a couple. 21lb+ 22lb+ 24lb+ 24lb+ 24lb+ Also today Brendan and I are leaving for the UK to do two weeks of fishing and filming with Carl and Alex, hoping all goes well. We are both very excited!
  3. sterling is a seasonal water all around the the lagoons, you will do best there in the spring and fall. During the summer it's small carp, cats, and buffalo. In the fall the fishing there can be very good for size and numbers. It also stays weed free year round. My favorite area on the lagoon are the few openings on the opposite bank of the parking lot. Also ford and Belleville lake have a lot of carp in them, try ford lake park or north bay park on ford lake!
  4. First fish from a new lake was this 26lb common Next fish was this 24lb+ common
  5. A post spawn recap of my PB koi which had dropped a little over a pound in weight Beautiful fantail ghostie I had the other day
  6. A few Israeli mirrors from a trip to Ohio!
  7. A couple koi! One of which we call the cow and the other we named Houdini! After that fish we have now caught all 8 of our target koi!
  8. Alright thank god lol, you had me worried! Look forward to the event as usual, should be a great time!

    To early still?

    No problem chance! I will be out fishing saline on Thursday hopefully and will let you know how it fishes. I know a few weeks ago some of the north end of ford was unfrozen but the rest of the lake was solid. Not sure now thougv

    To early still?

    Hey chance, for some venues yes it's still too early. If you want a good chance at catching try saline mill pond. Should be mostly unfrozen and will give you a good chance at a fish this time of year as it warms up quick. A couple fish have been caught out of it as of last week. I would stay away from erie right now as the water level has dropped tremendously because of the winds today. Although sterling should start producing within the next two weeks once unfrozen
  14. I will be there hopefully we have some open water lol!

    Congrats on the win Christian very well deserved!! Cant wait to see a few of the pics from the event, saw that ghostie you had, unreal!
  16. My next entry is a smaller fish but the backdrop makes up for it I think lol, I was fishing on top of some huge ice cliffs and they made for some good pictures!
  17. I guess since nothing has been added i will add these two. This first one was a 21lb from a recent session here in Michigan
  18. Oh yes definite heat wave, it's been absolutely frigid here this February!
  19. Skeet we had a very mild day with the temps hovering around the 40's!
  20. Thanks guys! Andy I think it was a little of both
  21. I've been pretty inactive on the forum this past winter as I usually am every winter, but I thought I'd share some picture from my last session out. I've never fished for carp in February here in Michigan but since it was around 40 degrees this past Sunday I decided to get out and try to catch a carp or two. When I showed up to the spot I wasn't to confident I'd catch because of the huge ice piles that had built up from the wind blowing in ice chunks off the main lake, but Kyle and I decided to fish anyway. We had to set up our rods on top of all the ice because the shoreline was non existent anymore. Any way I did end up catching 5 fish up to 21lbs which I was extremely happy to just be catching some fish as spring is still some time away up here. So here are the pictures, I though the ice and stuff made for some cool photos! The rods on top of all the ice! First fish! Biggest if the session at 21lb 8oz! Kyle on top of all the ice
