    Thanks?.... It's not a great picture because I was fishing alone, and the guy down the bank took the picture for me, but he couldn't get an understanding of how to work the flash on my iPhone

    I know, right, just 4 more ounces, Lol. I know there are probably some 30# plus fish in Lake Arlington. The lake record was 13.25 lbs for a common, but I've been baiting out and fishing this same spot for 2 years now, and it just keeps getting better. I started just using a rolling pin and a cutting board and a pizza cutter when making my pre-bait boilies.... Cutting rectangles/ squares/ triangles/ and hand rolling a few round ones to mix in. All different sizes, but everything pretty big, and it saves a lot of time. I still use my sausage gun and rolling trays for my hook baits. I bait this spot out at least 2 days a week because it's only about 10 minutes from the house. We will see what the rest of the season brings, but I have high hopes for a bigger fish there.

  10. First Fish In of the Year

    Glad to see y'all caught some nice fish, and glad the weather worked out. Sorry I missed it , but it looked really bad for the weather. I hope we do another one soon for all of us who missed out

  12. First Fish In of the Year

    I'm pretty flexible so I'm ready to go whenever it works out best for everyone..... Please keep us updated

    Sounds Great to me! I want to go back there and fish a few days. I fished the ATC, but it would be really nice to fish there in some warmer temperatures, LOL. It's only about a 3 1/2 hou drive for me.

    Tank you!!!?
  15. Pegs

    This is our first visit to Austin and our first carp tournament. I believe we are also first in line to draw for pegs either on day one or day two. Therefore, we have no knowledge to base a decision between pegs on. Can anyone advise us on what factors to consider when choosing between the two we draw?

    Thanks for the clarification

    Ok, Thank You. Everything looks pretty big and spread out on the peg maps, so I just wanted to make sure I could find it. I'm sure if I need help , it will be available,as everyone has been very considerate.

    I would at least like to go Thursday evening and figure out parking etc. for our peg.

    Can we prebait Thursday after the corn boil or just early Friday morning? Same Question for using our marker rods?
  20. ATC 2015 Info

    It's going to be cold.... And probably raining on Saturday also. I will be bringing plenty of warm clothes and Rain gear.... And a good pair of waterproof boots because I am sure it will be muddy even if it's not raining.
  21. ATC 2015 Info

    I believe that the corn boil will be at 3:00 pm at the pool at the Wyndam..... I know that the link for the rules and regulations says 2013, but this is what they sent out to us for this year, so I'm sure that it is the same. I would like to know if we can start setting our peg up at first light, and also if we are allowed to use our marker rods or spod rods before 7:00 am.... This is my first year also.

    I Believe that these are the rules and regulations http://www.cag-atc.com/2013/

    Thank you so very much.... That is very kind of you, and VERY much appreciated. I bought a nice Mat, and really nice weigh sling, the Nash monster zip sack, and the 66# Reuben Heaton digital scale from David at Big Carp Tackle today. I Love Big Carp Tackle. I'm going to use my Transit tripod to hang my scales on. It's a very heavy duty extendable tripod, and with the transit unscrewed I can rig it to work with the scales without messing it up. I have a nice rubber net already. It's pretty big, but I could use a bigger net if I caught a nice buffalo, lol.
  24. ATC 2015 Info

    Just wondered if I needed my own scales and weigh sling and or a bag to keep the fish healthy until it is weighed ,if I don't need all that I don't want to spend the money.but I want to have what I do need. This is my first time so I wasn't sure of what type of safety and weighing equipment that I might need.
  25. ATC 2015 Info

    Hi! I have all my fishing gear.... Pod/ rods/ alarms/boilies / hook setups etc. but I need to know what I need in the way of carp saftey... Weigh slings.... Carp safty bags... Do I need my own certified scales? Money is a little bit of an issue, but I still want to have what I need . Any help will be greatly appreciated....... Rance.
