    Any fishins for this spring around here?

    Got one tentatively planned for Lenoir City Park, Fort Loudon Lake, on May 4, 2019. Will be posting later on the forum and the CAG calendar after checking with the park office to make sure it doesn't interfere with any other functions. There will be some of us who will fish on the 3rd and put out bait.

    Madisonville Lake

    Welcome. We had chatted by PM. Keep an eye on the calendar as there are some fish-ins coming up in GA and TN. M'ville is not far from me so we'll keep in touch.

    Catch and release.....illegal???

    You might point out that the US government was one of the main instigators for the introduction of the common carp in the US.
  5. Good advice.

    2019 CAG CTX Throwdown - *New Format*

    Let the sling drain a bit, hang the sling and set the scale to tare weight if possible, the weigh the fish. The dial scales might not be able to do this but my electronic scale has this feature. I'm trying to figure out to set the tare weight to zero and program it to add three pounds.😈
  7. There are fly rods that have as many as seven pieces for backpacking. With any graphite rod, make sure the ferrules are snug. The least little bit of play will cause the female ferrule to crack. Had a fellow who cracked his rod tip by doing this. He asked if I would fix it. He wrapped it with sewing thread and coated it with super Glue! Totally ruined it.
  8. Can't help with your question but I have advocated a 10-13 foot rod with three pieces. My 13 footers broken down into two pieces fit in my Honda Odyssey van but the little Ford Ecosport is too short.

    That is a memorable catch! Your oatmeal packbait mix is interesting. Thanks for sharing.

    Winter creek carpin!

    Good day on the creek bank. All our lakes and rivers are blown out from all the rain here in the SE. Getting more later this week.

    Carp: length, girth, weight ?

    Like carp anglers?😊

    Pack bait help

    I like the oatmeal mix that I posted earlier. If it dries, as Manosteel said, add a bit of lake or river water to moisten it and fish!

    Tips for river fishing in GA in late 2018

    Same goes for Tennessee. Lakes, rivers, creeks are running full and more rain expected tomorrow and Saturday. If it keeps up, I'm going to start baiting the ditch by my house.
