Here is another video my wife took last weekend during the Midwestern Regional. I didn't know she was filming this until she showed it to me a few days later. The fish ended up weighing 18 pounds, but fought harder than the 25 pounder I landed a few minutes later. The dog barking in the background was pretty excited with the entire process. I think the dog brought good luck with him because it had been pretty quiet until the dog stopped by to visit.
Brian Pearcy posted a topic in Pictures, Stories & VideoI look forward to attending the Carp Anglers Group Midwestern Regional each year. I have been making plans to attend the 2016 event since late 2015, so Friday morning I headed out early for the trip to Saginaw as a member of Team Michigan. On Friday I fished a new area of the river (for me) and within 30 minutes of casting out I landed the first fish – a small 10 pounder. Sorry for the photos. My photographer decided to sleep in a few hours before driving up to Saginaw shortly after lunch. It took several more hours to land a second fish, at 15 pounds, which was unfortunately my last fish for the day. Saturday morning we arrived at the peg draw anticipating a day filled with carp fishing and hoping for high quantities of high quality fish topping the 20 pound mark, which on the Saginaw River is fairly common. I landed a 13 pounder very early on and a nice channel catfish later in the day, but unfortunately carp were regretfully absent from my swim the remainder of the day on Saturday. Team Michigan was in second place heading into Sunday. My teammates started landing fish early in the day, but unfortunately my luck was running cold for the first few hours. I was fishing the Bigelow Park peg for the first time. Heavy winds impacted my casting and prevented me from putting the bait in the proper zone. Teammates were landing fish closer to shore, so I tried that awhile. But I kept trying my preferred spot off and on with little success. The winds subsided in the late afternoon. Casting and current improved substantially as a weather front approached. The skies turned dark blue and it looked like rain was imminent. I commented to my wife that all heck was going to break loose at any minute. Sitting back in sport umbrella out of the wind, she asked why and I explained that was likely to start raining hard soon and I had a feeling the fish were about to start feeding heavily. It turns out I was incorrect about the weather, but right about the fish. After a tough day playing the waiting game on Saturday afternoon, these fish were a welcome arrival. Just when it seemed like they'd never come, things turned around. This was my third time fishing the regional. I think this year's conditions offered the biggest challenges (at least for me), but a tweak here and there; and suffering through a pity party or two paid off with some nice fish at long last.
