  1. CAG Big Four Spring 2018

    Yea-hah!!....can't wait!- have two new Daiwa baitcaster reels with 9' rods!!!.......trying new method lead pack this year.....looks promising!!....Good luck all!!!.........
  2. Day Off Carping @Ray Hubbard

    Great job again!!!....send some warm weather our way would-ya?........the first carp has lost some scales, likely some form of trauma, then the healing tissue response takes over......if the carp is healthy, it should heal.....................
  3. Fishing New Venues

    I'd go to the creeks-they warm faster than lakes, which are still a couple weeks away with the delayed spring.......creeks are nice cause you can disseminate the scent better-the water does it for you!...I'm having good success when I go out, which hasn't been daily due to work, etc........I agree to move if no hits, but usually I only wait 15 minutes before moving, or recasting.............this time of year they're a little slower and the bite is very subtle- you'll catch far more fish if you pay attention to your lines instead of waiting for runs............just sayin... :)..........I'm only 3 hours away from the Iowa border-we should set somethin up!................
  4. Carp Fishing the 'vine Round 2

    Great job!!!....that's an excellent day anywhere!
  5. April carpin

    Yes!, so.....longer story- I used what I call a pea-corn sandwich a couple years ago, with a subtle bite technique- one kernel of sweet corn on a #4 gamakatsu circle hook (now use only korda krank microbarb), then a crushed sweet corn kernel, then one canned sweet pea, then one more kernel, on a slip-sinker system- deadly on creek carp!!...graduated to hair rigs and almost always use those now, but you loose more in rocky creeks.......there's something about peas that is a definite attractant- caught several fish in the low 20s on that combination....so....simply mix sweet pea juice, panko, and bird seed together in a pack on a method lead with a hair rig.- The carp that hit, smashed it-wild run!.......the carp still aren't very active yet, but much better...only days away from a big upswing I think!.....

    Hi all!.... Rocky winter-too prolonged, but managed to catch fish every month so far!....Had 90 minutes to fish this evening, just before dark at the local creek.......just came up with a new pack bait, and low and behold, caught two on a strawberry, panko, sweet corn, bird seed combo on a fake corn hair rig, but one on the new combo- sweet pea panko and bird seed!........the first strawberry was 4-15, then the sweet pea 6-5 and finally topped it off with a very nice 10-10!........stuffs warmin up!!!.........good luck all!......
  7. Quick River Session!

    No giants?...I beg to differ-those are class fish anywhere!- good job!!!!!
  8. I can't find the ATC leaderboard!

    Good luck all!.....sorry we couldn't attend........
  9. URGENT - CT Regulations!

    Sent mine with a personal note as well................good luck!........CAG needs a more solid footing and stronger voice-we will be over-run with the money and politics of bowhunting, culling, mis-information, etc. across the U.S.......................
  10. Please Release the Big Fish

    I like it!
  11. Marchin carp!

    Hi all! Haven't been fishin for awhile, but the weather cooperated today and i hit the creek-my first spot, one I rely on close to home, produced nothing in 2 hours....I moved (literally 30 yards away) to a hole under a heavily traveled bridge and within 14 minutes, had this 14-2 fighter!!....Not the slow cold winter carp, but a spring carp!....then about 30 minutes later, this banged up 10-0lbr.....misshapen face, damaged left eye and an old scar on the right side, but, fought just as hard as the 14lbr......both fish caught on hair rigs with double fake corn-elevates the hook just a bit.................startin to heat-up!!!...........Go fishin!- don't think about it, just go!!!.......MO CARPER.......
  12. About ATC 2018

    Wellllll thank ya!!!
  13. cracked corn

    I generally soak whole corn for a day or two, then boil it with tap water in a crock pot, keeping enough water just above the kernels. Boiling does eliminate chlorine. Once the corn is soft, I drain it, then add vanilla and place in a bucket and keep it cool til use; the day of baiting, I usually add a can of whole kernel sweet corn and stir it in....generally about 2-3 gallons...Since switching to hair rigs with pack bait, I am using less baiting.....especially short sessions-longer sessions, I almost always do.....For my pack bait and boilies though I don't use tap water-just sweet corn juice.......I agree with the old sages though-they'll pretty much take anything you use-finding them is key!!.
  14. Email notifications

    Easy......don't have Facebook......I don't...it does maybe cause a few issues, but prevents more!.......
