Hello fellow carpers, Tracy here. The new year finally got under way for 2012 and started out on fire. Weather-wise it was sunny, blue-skies and a forecast of mid 90's. My truck registered 95 degrees. South/southwest wind between 10/20 mph. Felt more like Texas than Chicago. Fortunately this venue has trees to hide under. The fish were rolling and cavorting while I put out peg markers at 6am. The draw was 6:30 with a start time of 7am. First fish was only a few minutes after the whistle and was fairly steady for the north sections all day but the southern sections slowed as water temperatures increased. I installed a "new" or different scoring system that will pit each carper only against the carpers in their section. As such the scuffle for the 4 points of each section were fought for with some very close results. Section D had only a 3lb. difference from 1st to 3rd. While section A/B each had 2 carpers over 100lbs. and fought for their 4 points also. Most were within 1 fish of changing their result. For those that follow such: Team Polonia has 2 members competing(Andy B. and Marcin) of which Andy is the current league frontrunner.
