  1. Carp Guide services and lessons

    There should be some that would teach you the finer points of carping. Go to the Beginner section of the website and start there. Keep in mind, many of us have adopted the Euro style of carping with the long rods and alarms, etc. but you can start with basic tackle for bass fishing. Whoever "guides" you will be a volunteer, I would think. Here in TN, if you guide for $$, you have to have a special license. Also, look at the calendar of events and see what fish-ins are in your area or within driving distance. Welcome to the wonderful world of carping! BTW, I would recommend you consider a membership.

    I clicked on the 2012 Q4 NACA magazine and get a 404 error message. What's up?

  5. Hi from a new member

    Welcome to CAG. I didn't get a chance to try for carp on the skinny stick. May not be too late yet.
  6. A quick introduction and my PB carp

    What a job! Captain D's on wheels? I'm intrigued by the looks on the faces of the kids. May be the only time they have seen a fish up close and their environment. Welcome to the forum.

    Welcome to CAG.
  8. A GARgantuan surprise!

    Saw a head mount of an alligator gar in a place in Shreveport. Over six feet long and about 100 pounds. That's a lot of fish. BTW, Jeremy Wade, River Monsters, fished with a guide on the Trinity River in Texas. It was a river but looked like a muddy ditch but had big gar.

  10. Throw back pic 06!

    Nice photo- good to recall the good ol' days. 2006? I could use the first photo as a cover for the newsletter....if that is OK with you. I recognized Ed in the plaid jacket, second from the right, back row.
  11. What are Some Good Carp Waters in Ohio?

    Not familiar with carping waters as I haven't lived in Ohio for many years. Should be some good carping just about anywhere. Get a map and start looking. While there, check out the Amish community. Holmes County has one of the largest populations of Amish in the country. Off topic but interesting trivia. Back in the early 50s, Smithville was known for their speed trap. They cut you no slack whatsoever. If you were clocked at one MPH over the posted limit, you were given a ticket. The town saved up the money from the fines and used it to build a new high school.
  12. CAG Big Four goldfish!!

    You can make turtle soup. The nice is that you turn them upside down and they come with their own bowl.
  13. Most unusual catch ever!!!!-

    Just don't forget to strain the corn from the mixture. Sign in gift shop- I cook with wine. Sometimes I even put it in my food.
  14. When can you say you have caught a fish?

    I'm trying to think of the salmon that is snagged as they don't feed during spawning. The fly is cast out and the tippet is allowed to be caught in the jaws of the salmon and the hook is set. Sort of a way of snagging.
  15. When can you say you have caught a fish?

    IMHO, if it's on the mat or in the net, it is caught. I have foul-hooked a couple of trout that way. If you bring it in and unhook it, it is considered caught. Case in point- if you hole out a shot from the tee or fairway, it counts whether you use a wood, iron, or putter. You don't have to use a putter on the green for it to count.
