  2. FFF 2018 - Post ALL Carp Entries/Captures here!

    That's crazy... an FFF PB! I'll be shocked if anyone in the north zone catches a fish in this weather... possibly the coldest FFF on record?

  4. FFF Advice?

  5. 2017

    Awesome fish! Congrats!
  6. FFF Advice?

    Hello everyone, I wasn't sure where to post this since I couldn't put it on the FFF forum itself... anyway, I'm getting a CAG membership this Christmas and I plan on participating in the FFF this year. However, I've never fished in the winter before and I'm not sure what works best. Recently, water temperatures have been in the mid 40s, and I predict they will approach the high 30s on January 1st. With that being said, I assume I should focus on the deeper water? I've also heard that oxygenation is important, so I've found a swim where a shallow creek flows into a deep hole, around 15 feet, in a secluded bay off a large river. Does this sound like a productive swim, or should I concentrate more on the shallower areas that might get more sunlight exposure? Finally, I'm used to prebaiting large amounts in the spring and fall but I'm aware less is more in the water months. I plan to chum half a gallon of particle on December 30th, simply to get them rooting around on the bottom for freebies. Any opinions or other tips are welcomed and appreciated. Thanks for your time! Ryan

    Nice fish! I plan on participating in this years FFF.. do you need to fish at night? I was hoping to fish for a few hours on new years day, because I might not be able to fish at night
  9. Self Photos with Your Smartphone

    +1 on the tripod and 10 second remote button.. That's exactly what I did here:
  10. This weeks carp-beautiful mirror!

    Is that a fully scaled beauty I see? Incredible! I'm still patiently waiting for my first mirror...
  11. Cold weather baits

    I'd love to try this out, but water temps around here are bottoming out in the 40s! Fish not biting recently, been hit with cold front after cold front and it's really shutting them down
  12. Epic Vacation Session!

    hmm.. just tried and I got this error
  13. River carping frustration!

    Personally, I use 30lb power pro in moss green, but any power pro line in a camo color like dark green or brown in the 30 - 50 pound test range should also work excellently.

    I'd definitely recommend the 12' rods. Personally, I use Sonik S3 3.5 TC rods and I can easily cast 100 yards with them. As for your debris problem, I definitely recommend a backlead on braided line. Don't use Fluro or mono, because in my experience they stretch too much to allow for bite detection at long distances. Finally, definitely use a much heavier gripper style lead. I use Korda big grippa leads exclusively in 5oz size. If you buy a >3.25 TC rod you should be able to cast it with ease. They hold pack bait/method mix wonderfully, and I rarely have it fly off on the cast. They hold bottom wonderfully, too.
  15. Carp Probability Calculator

    Hello fellow CAG members! Lately I've had an idea that, if followed through, could be my next go-to tool in carp fishing. As you can see in my interests column, besides carp fishing I love computer programming. So I've decided to combine my two passions to make a probability calculator, where you input several factors such as wind, moon phase, tide (if applicable), water temperature, etc., and a general probability of catching a certain number of carp is calculated. Of course, the program will never be completely accurate, but I would like to take on the challenge of programming such a tool. Who knows, it may become a carp anglers' best friend! My question to you is what variables/factors should determine the outcome? Which circumstances of said variable will catch the most and least fish? For example, if one of the variables you have in mind is water temperature, you could say, " Water Temperature - 5) 60-70 Degrees 4) 70-80 Degrees 3) 50-60 Degrees 2) 80-100 Degrees 1) 0-40 Degrees " Based on the user input, a percentage for that variable would be calculated. For example, if the user says that the water temperature is 65 degrees, that would be considered a 5/5, or a 100% chance. These percentages would be calculated for every variable and averaged. If the average percentage is 0 or 100 percent, since there are no certainties in fishing, the program would output a 1 or 99 percent chance of catching a carp, respectively. The odds of catching two carp would be half the odds of catching one, three carp a third, etc. Any ideas?
