    The Wethersfield cove carp get together

    had a look at Hubbard park lake today in meriden ct and it looks good, small lake of what i would say is 4 acres with an average depth of 4-5ft but holds some wackers ! have seen pictures of 2 fish from there both low 30s and a story of a girl of 8yrs catching a 38lb fish on a barbie rod of all things. so, im proposing we change the Sunday fish-in to there instead, thoughts ?

  6. as ct state chair it would be great to meet the new carpers who are in Connecticut now, so i am proposing a little fish-in at wethersfield cove, a bit of a social if you will. 11/10/18 looks like a good weekend for it and the fish should be there in numbers,our distinguished leader Mr sorrell recently fished it and bagged up !. if anyone wants to bring a couple of B-B-Qs i will supply the meat from wholefoods and we can have a bit of a cook out. i will speak to Mr sorrell and see if we can get a small prize for the biggest fish caught as a little incentive. i would be grateful if anyone interested would reply to this post and i can sort out how many steaks,sausages,bacon and the such like we will need entertainment will be supplied in the shape of lain sorrell who's witty story's of his time on savey lake in England had them rolling in the isles at the cairns film festival in 1850. i hope to see you all there. cheers folks. lee

    Are Boilies Overrated

    look at it this way, your carp aint gona grow big and fat like the European carp eating sweet corn and chick peas , yes they catch a lot of fish but there not gona put on weight. as we all know sweet corn is the best bait ever made but that's just it , every fish that swims loves the stuff and you cant single out your carp quarry. the fish in Europe have got to the size they are by eating boilies pure and simple,you go back to 1952 when the great dick walker caught Clarissa there where no boillies/high nutritional baits as such and the fish weighed 44lb and that was a hippopotachunk for that time , the world record now is , i think a fish called shoulders that weighs 98lb...sweet corn fish ? i don't think so. keep persisting with boillies and you will see your carp record sizes start to grow to the point, i think, the American carp will start to get bigger than the European carp. just my 50 pence worth lads.

    Fishing New Venues

    go for places that warm up quickest in the early spring sun,shallow water will warm quicker. its really all about location,find the fish,let them tell you where to fish,the worst thing in the world is to have a pre designated plan on what swim your going to fish,if the fish are not there its a waste of your time.take an hour and do a lap of the water your going to fish leaving your tackle in the car and just taking a pair of Polaroids to look through the surface glare. just last week i spent 2 hours walking around a lake near to savaymans house and finally found feeding fish right on the back of a freezing cold wind bubbling like crazy in about 4 feet of water,i ended up loosing one but at least i was on the fish. don't go piling the bait in,single hook baits and a PVA bag or mesh would be perfect,i would not go out trying to fill the lake in,just fish for a bite,just enough for a mouthful is all they will be looking for at this time of year mate. i personally would not pre bait a swim coz when you get there you might find the fish in a totally different place. good luck mate.
