  1. WOW, WOW, WOW!!!!!!!!..... lOOK AT THIS FISH!..........I was fishing the afternoon of August 21st, when, low and behold, I hooked and landed the Missouri, ( and maybe a national record common carp!) at 60lb 3 oz.........back and forth, back and forth trying to land it; too large for the net, so I had to wade in and hand land it directly into the sling............Only able to get this one picture at 1:09 pm..................hee, hee, hee.......ok, so not really .............not sure why scientists said you couldn't get pictures of the eclipse with your phone- no problem here!!!....just placed it face down on my desk, took the photo, and voila!!!.......totality!!!
  2. BIG 4 Fall 2017 - Bragging Thread

    .................ok, so a little braggin!- finally broke 20lbs with a 23-1!!!........what a fight as well!!........and then, well.....babies are carp too!....Caught this 13-0, 17-14, 11-8, 6-9, then the 23-1, and 1-4, and 1-4-twins!!....oh, and one turtle!!...............
  3. BIG 4 Fall 2017 - Bragging Thread

    .....and topped off the evening with this 12-6......local lake where I caught my PB 33lbr, but alas, not to be tonight...................
  4. BIG 4 Fall 2017 - Bragging Thread

    Sooooooooo......I'm not bragging, and certainly not hiding any "biggies", but here's this afternoons fish.....I say afternoon cause that's when we started catching them.......Kevin (Zirjacks), AJ, and I spent 5 hours with only a single carp by Kevin, then I hooked 4, landed 3........12-5, 14-1 and 11-15......just not biggies, but lots of fun and great company!.....good luck all!!!
  5. Nash alarms for sale

    ........not familiar with alarms at all, though always wanted to try-what is the need for the receiver?- do they not work if you don't have it?....
  6. that makes sense!...............uggghhhhhhhh-totally blanked last night except for this large cat-- 11lb, 13oz-the only hit.................used panko/strawberry/sweet corn/bird seed pack bait on hair-rig method feeder-one rod homemade boilee, one fake corn, and one pineapple crush pop-up....on top of boiled corn/creamed corn chum (but only about 5-8 lbs, and 3 hours fishin)........nuthin (and during solunar table major bite!)....oh well.......
  7. I would hazard to guess "bowhunters"....the majority of which I have seen are indiscriminate-taking any and all carp......I lob balls of pack bait, but none as large as oranges- I'll give it a whirl!!......
  8. You left out the mix- do you regularly use tap water, lake water or sweet/creamed corn?...I like sweet corn juice with panko/bread crumb balls, but my base is the boiled corn, sometimes with vanilla added..........
  9. BIG 4 Fall 2017 - Bragging Thread

    .......followed by a nicer day today-at a lake I had only caught a couple grass carp, but today this nice 16-0lbr followed by a smaller 6-14........
  10. BIG 4 Fall 2017 - Bragging Thread

    ........and then there's days like this..............a set of three fish, 10, 11 and 14-10, but then the bottom fell out last night!- 6 fish, but only 7-2, 4-3, 3-11, 3-5, 2-11 and 5-3......in the same spot, same set-up, same chum, etc........ugghhhhhhh!!!!....only comfort was I lost no rigs, caught all on home made boilees on a pop-up blowback rig, and the last two was a double.......-didn't even make one nice fish combining them!....ugghhhhhh again, but fun fishing anyway!....I think once I find big-carp waters, I'll do a little better!!........
  11. BIG 4 Fall 2017 - Bragging Thread

    That is a VERY nice fish!!!- Great job!!!!........
  12. Self Photos with Your Smartphone

    and when you don't...... :).....not quite Big Four quality from this spring and fall.........:).....catfish do it too!!!...
  13. Self Photos with Your Smartphone

    ........or......................go to your camera; hit the 10 second remote button, and the reverse button- set the phone where you can see yourself-hit the button and you have 10 seconds to position the fish/scale/logo.....works very well (with cooperative fish)....For evening shots I place a small lantern-put the phone in front, between you and the lantern/light-I also turn off the flash-gives a more night time feel..... .........I also have a $1.00 tiny tripod which fits my phone (dollar store/cvs/)....you can also set the "bursts" which takes 5 photos at a time- there are subtle differences in each pic- I happen to like using the ones with the carp's mouth open........ , but I'll try the app too!!.....
  14. Two PBs busted in one session!

    Very very nice!!.......I'll join ya sometime on a Sunday/Monday; I've tweaked my hair rigs to a pop-up boilee blowback rig and caught all my fish last night (9 in 4 hours) on them.......That 31lbr is a beast!!!...........Great work!!....
  15. BIG 4 Fall 2017 - Bragging Thread

    Welllllllll the moon cooperated with me tonight!- 9 fish in 4 hours and averaged just a tad larger........AND all on hair rigs! tied as blowback rigs and using a 30g method feeder with bread crumb, strawberry jello, birdseed and creamed sweet corn mix on two poles, and one with a homemade boilee!- crushed wheat, strawberry, flour, egg, and 30-45 seconds in the microwave makes em a pop-up...., 4-2,14-3, 8-1, 6-1, 14-0, 14-10, 2-11, 4-1 and 12-4......the 8-1 and 6-1 were a double, with the third pole in the water....I just prayed not a triple!!!........Simply not going to catch Jerome!!
  16. BIG 4 Fall 2017 - Bragging Thread

    I haven't found the "sweet" spot for 20s and 30s, but I'm just a newbie!...............tried out the local lake last night in the rain, all with hair rigs and my first attempts at home- made pop-up boilies! One very large channel cat, then these 3- tiny carp!- 3-11, 9-12, and 3-5.......still fun to catch!!.....If I position the fish just right, the 9lbr looks more like a 15!, but alas...not to be.......and none as thick as Jeromes!!............(and this really can't count as "bragging"
  17. BIG 4 Fall 2017 - Bragging Thread

    Congrats Jerome!!........give the rest of us a chance!.... :).....Is that the Connecticut river?..........I'm already way behind ya!!........tonights creek catch- a really nice, thick 14-4.........really nice orange cheek patches!!-hadn't seen that before.....

    It doesn't work over a phone-use a laptop.......go to live leaderboard and click at the bottom-you need to go up to the toolbar when it comes up-click events, go to the CAG Big Four Fall 2017 event, click on that, and you should get a green "Apply to event"- apply and that should do it! ..........Kirk
