  1. This is great Philip. Really appreciate the super responsiveness. Many thanks!
  2. Totally agree Keith. This would eliminate the confusion. Rule says this: "To qualify for a Regional Award you must act within all the Rules for the Spring Big 4 2019 and have the State of Capture started in the Leaderboard for all fish in your top 4 which MUST be the same State. " Should say this: "To qualify for a Regional Award you must act within all the Rules for the Spring Big 4 2019 and have the State of Capture started in the Leaderboard for all fish in your top 4 which MUST be the same REGION. "
  3. Thanks for responding Ian. My question is particular to the Regional award only. I will only fish Region 1. I fish the Potomac River and can fish it from several swims in 2 different states. Can I enter 4 fish (total) from 2 different STATES in Region 1 and still qualify for a regional award (like say 2 from DC and 2 from VA)? The rules (see below) seem to indicate they have to be from the same (one) state in the region. That's what is confusing me. If it has to be one state, then I will know to concentrate my efforts in just one to qualify for a Regional Award. "To qualify for a Regional Award you must act within all the Rules for the Spring Big 4 2019 and have the State of Capture started in the Leaderboard for all fish in your top 4 which MUST be the same State. " BTW, thanks for everything you do for the club!
  4. Thx MO. I hope someone in charge clarifies this for certain because that seems to be opposite of what I see in the rules: "To qualify for a Regional Award you must act within all the Rules for the Spring Big 4 2019 and have the State of Capture started in the Leaderboard for all fish in your top 4 which MUST be the same State. " I just would like to know for sure in order to plan my fishing and not find out later I wasted trips if I fish 2 different states (in my Region 1).
  5. Thanks Barry, that's my question too. If I can, I'd like to fish 2 states in the same Region 1 (same water). Doesn't look like I can if I read the rules right but that's what I want clarified.
  6. Thanks Sam but I will only be in one Region (Region 1), but have the close by option of 2 states. I fish the Potomac and have options to fish it both in DC and VA (close to me), both of which are in Region 1. So this means I can only fish ONE of those 2 states, DC or VA but not both? "To qualify for a Regional Award you must act within all the Rules for the Spring Big 4 2019 and have the State of Capture started in the Leaderboard for all fish in your top 4 which MUST be the same State. " I just want to clarify so I can plan to fish just one of these 2 states if that is the case.
  7. Hi. Have a question please to clarify regions: I fish the Potomac, sometimes in DC, sometimes in VA. If I read this right, in order to qualify for a regional award, I must catch all of my fish in only 1 of those jurisdictions correct (even though both are in Region 1)? I can't enter 2 fish from DC and 2 from VA even though both come from the same Potomac river? Assuming so, this means I'll need to concentrate my efforts in only 1 of those jurisdictions (why I want to be sure I understand). Thanks for any help.
  8. Oh yeah Chi! Been there, done that, back when I had a bass boat (which I hope to rectify next year)!!
  9. Cool, thanks for the tip on the Dipsey sinkers Chi, I'll check them out (and the braid). Ditto on the method leads, that is mainly what I use also (2.5 - 3 Oz. Fox Paste Bombs) but here on the Potomac, there are some main river spots that when the tide gets ripping (and when the fish seem most active) nothing can hold you except something like a 5 Oz lead so yeah, I think I will pick up a few as Lizardman suggested. Tight lines!
  10. Hi Lizardman529, thanks for your reply! I now have 12' 3.5 TC Diawa rods which should cast those 5 Oz. Korda Gripper leads you recommend. Using braid in this situation certainly makes sense, any brand you recommend? I've tried Suffix Fluorobraid which sinks but unfortunately I have found to be very inconsistent breaking off WAY too many fish so any braid recommendation you can provide would be welcome. I am currently using Fox Submerge 40# braid which I assume should work? My next step will be getting some back leads and giving this a shot. Thanks again!

  12. Thanks Chicarp. I think I was only getting that distance because I was using a method lead and was afraid I'd whip the method off the sinker if I wailed it too hard to get distance, You're line loading routine sounds quite ingenious! I was looking at those 9' salmon Ugly Stiks. I am afraid where I fish due to overhanging trees I'd have a tough time casting with a 12 footer so those might be a great compromise and a money saver. Coupling those with big pit reels might be the ticket. Thanks very much for the info and I will be looking into this further. Tight lines to you!
  13. Thanks Moon! That looks like the ticket. Yes I really don't like fluoro, but use it for bass fishing when necessary, but avoid it whenever I can so this looks like a good line to try. Really appreciate all the help for everyone on the forum! Once I get these suggestions incorporated I'll let everyone know how it goes.
  14. Thanks Todd! This might be the best route since there is much floating weed snagging my line. Wondering, since the line would lay along the bottom between the 2 leads with a back lead, would fluorocarbon main line be best since it sinks? I prefer braid and mono, but if I have to use fluoro I will. Thanks again for your help.
