    Saginaw River Carp

    Here are some fish from the CAG Regionals this past weekend. There were 10 other carp landed as well with weights ranging from 33#+ to low teens. It was best regionals to date and my best Saginaw River trip in the 5 years I've been going there.

    My NEW PB at 37 pounds 7 ounces

    Thanks guys. That fish was right at 40 inches long. I suspect it could be a 40# fish in a few weeks prior to the spawn. Water temp was barely above 50 when this fish was caught so it's going to much more actively feeding now.

    I like those buffalo. Nice job.

    My NEW PB at 37 pounds 7 ounces

    Thanks guys. We got real nervous after seeing it surface about 100 feet from shore. I could tell it was bigger than anything I had caught before.
  5. It was my only fish on the day, and it didn't even sound the alarm (drop back), but boy was it a special fish. It was my first 30+ pound fish I've ever caught. The 5 year wait is over.

    Sharp hooks??

    I change hooks every 3rd fishing session at least. More if I find one that's a little dull. A new hook is a small investment when we spend 8 hours or more on the bank.

    ALL GUESTS NON CAG Member Please read

    I have made offline friends through the membership that I wouldn't have otherwise. I've met many good fishing partners online and we fish very regularly locally.

    ALL GUESTS NON CAG Member Please read

    I think making a choice to join as a CAG member is a personal decision. People join for different reasons. I joined because as with several membership organizations I belong to, I knew I could short cut my learning curve by reading, sharing, and learning from others. The value in having a resource to ask questions alone, is worth the small cost of membership to me.

    Dead forum

    I think a forum or Facebook or personal relationships take work. The more you give, the more you get. The more you contribute that adds value, the more people share/contribute back to you in return.

    Favorite mirror

    To some who catch mirrors on a regular basis this fish may not be a stand out, but for yours truly who has only caught 5 or 6 mirrors in several years it's a special fish. There have only been 2 mirrors caught at this venue that I personally know about. Interestingly, the two fish have been caught by two different anglers.

    Favorite Picture from 2017

    Nice pics. Sometimes it's hard to pick just one.
  12. I titled the post "favorite picture" and not "favorite fish" because they are not one in the same for me. This fish picture is as close to perfect as any I have had in 4 years (in my mind/opinion). The fish weighed 23 pounds. The only processing completed on this photo is a few minor adjustments to contrast, saturation and I added a vignette to hopefully focus the eyes more towards the fish. What is your favorite fish picture from 2017?

    I realized I haven't visited in several months. I need to get back to the forum more often.

    NTrap vs. Coated Braid

    I have fished 4 years plus with hair rigs tied from PowerPro braid. I got some N Trap late in the season, but didn't have confidence to use it. What are some advantages of using the semi-stiff material for hair rigs? Have I been missing the boat all these years?
