  1. Link to Leaderboard

    The problem I am having is seeing the breakdown of individual(s). Once I click on a entrants name to see the breakdown of their fish...it just says loading. No thumbnail pix either. The overall leaderboard seems ok. Just saying...
  2. Fox M+ Bite Alarm.

    This may be a long shot but I thought I would give it a shot... Does anyone have or know where I can get a replacement alarm cover for my Fox M+ bite alarm??? At some point this spring I lost one of the covers for my bite alarms. At first I figured it was in the bottom of my ruck sack or somewhere in my truck but after 4 months , no luck. If you have these alarms, you know all too well that the cover is the only thing that keeps the toggle switch (power switch) from inadvertently going on when you have them stored in your pack. Not Good.. And quite frankly, I'm having trouble sleeping at night knowing that its gone... ha ha jk. Any help would be appreciated.. Thanks Todd

  4. CAG Big 4 Registration and Logo - Fall 2017

    Wouldn't that be a little confusing? To have people on the leaderboard that did not register by the deadline? Am I reading this wrong? How will people on the board know who is actually entered or not?

  6. Fox M+ Bite Alarm.

    Unfortunately, he and I have had a falling out due to his level of commitment in this matter. He called me "cheep" and said I should just buy a new set of alarms.... What say you???? ha

  19. Bite indication without an alarm

    I have witnessed some people using small bells clipped to the tip of their rods. Crude, but can be effective.

  22. Title: A Day of Firsts and Pleasant Surprises Location: Massachusetts By: Todd Richer Today’s first surprise actually occurred very early in the morning during this year’s FFF. After waking up at 6:00, I immediately started the coffee pot and quickly took a look at the thermometer to see what I was going to be dealing with outside. Surprise #1: A mild 35 degrees!! I realize to some, 35 degrees may still seem cold but considering today was January 1st and I was in New England, 35 degrees would be considered balmy. Last year, it was 19 degrees when I got up and the two previous years were not that much better. On top of all this, the forecast for the day was” possibly 40 degrees”!! If I went fishless today, bad weather conditions and too cold would not be on my list of excuses. The second surprise of the day didn’t occur until I actually reached my fishing destination. Leading up to this year’s FFF, there was no shortage of talk regarding space availability at the “pond”. Last year, when I showed up at about the same time there were several, more hearty anglers already there that had apparently started much earlier than I did. Lucky for me, they were all great guys (and gals) and they quickly welcomed me and made room for me. This year I wondered during the ride over there if I would be as lucky… Would there be enough room for me to fish?? Big surprise #2: The parking lot was empty!! What?? Nobody else there….. Not only would there be enough room, but I had the entire place to myself! I actually looked at my phone to double check the date and time! Even as I write this story, I’m still not sure where everybody else was. Not being one to “look a gift horse in the mouth”, I quickly unloaded my truck and hustled down to the water’s edge and began fishing. One hour quickly turned into two and I had yet to see any action. At this point, I decided to pick up all my gear and move to another spot on the pond in an effort to change my “luck”. Also, at this time I decided to change my tactics as well. I put away my ‘standard “ rig and tied on a new cage feeder that I had recently built on the advice of fellow CAG member and friend Dean Brooks. Surprise #3: Bang! Two fish in quick succession within 10 minutes after moving and using my new cage feeder. They were not big but I was on the board and I caught them on something I had made myself. I compared it to catching fish on boilies you made yourself or a Bass on a homemade lure. Gratifying for sure.. Soon after, I had another run but unfortunately, that one did not result in a hook up. The fast action of the last 1.5 hr. quickly dissolved and I found myself sitting another two hours without a bite. Despite the reasonable temperatures, I was starting to get cold and tired and I considered “taking” my two fish and calling it a day. At this point, my friend and fellow CAG member Dave Pickering showed up to try his luck after going fishless in another swim earlier in the day. Needless to say, it didn’t take Dave very long to get a bite and he quickly had his first fish of the year in the net. I decided to hang in there after seeing Dave get that fish and in the next 2 hrs. We combined for another 3 small carp and the last of the surprises for the day. Overall, great day –great fun.
