  1. Finally gotta chance to fish this afternoon-tried a local river with no success after an hour, so went to a creek and caught 5 in just over 2 hours, all from 6-8lbs or so and one double!!. Had just cleaned, oiled, and re-spooled all my rods (17 in all!)-nice to have clean gear that worked perfect!.....I know most of us stay indoors til spring, but, on a nice day try your local creek- the carp are there!!!!........good fishing all!!!
  2. Hey all!! The weather finally warmed in KC so I took the opportunity to take a stab at one of the very few open water access, which is a reliable, though smaller-fish venue. Set one corn-rig, and two hair rigs, and viola!- this beautiful 4-13 golden carp- it fought like a summer fish and just before netting I thought I had a mirror, but alas, not to be......still, nice to get out -only a couple months til ATC!!!!......hope everyone had a great holiday season!!.......
  3. Hello everyone, I wasn't sure where to post this since I couldn't put it on the FFF forum itself... anyway, I'm getting a CAG membership this Christmas and I plan on participating in the FFF this year. However, I've never fished in the winter before and I'm not sure what works best. Recently, water temperatures have been in the mid 40s, and I predict they will approach the high 30s on January 1st. With that being said, I assume I should focus on the deeper water? I've also heard that oxygenation is important, so I've found a swim where a shallow creek flows into a deep hole, around 15 feet, in a secluded bay off a large river. Does this sound like a productive swim, or should I concentrate more on the shallower areas that might get more sunlight exposure? Finally, I'm used to prebaiting large amounts in the spring and fall but I'm aware less is more in the water months. I plan to chum half a gallon of particle on December 30th, simply to get them rooting around on the bottom for freebies. Any opinions or other tips are welcomed and appreciated. Thanks for your time! Ryan
  4. Hi all, Nothing fantastic, but just a nice afternoon fishing today....had two poles; one with light-weight (two split shots) sweet corn, one with oat/corn juice/corn/vanilla pack bait......within 5 minutes had this 9lb grass carp on the sweet corn, then this 8lb 4oz common on the sweet corn pole (not a hit on the oats), lost a larger fish, then this 8lb 12oz common on the same pole....I switched to both poles with sweet corn, but only one pole had the hits-tied the same, weighted the same (two round split-shot 4" up the line)....both poles 8lb mono, identical reels (Pflueger Trions), no alarms-just watching the VERY subtle bite..(any wind and I'd miss every fish), one pole with all the hits 5'6" and the other 5'....cast to within 2ft of each other and on elevated bank stakes......can't explain and don't really care, but...what if I had decided only the one rod?....my creek fishing observations of no carp would have been justified.....this is at least a 12', maybe 15' deep hole and I fished at the edge of the fast-moving inflow (X)......the farther spot (A) is a curved dead-end which the inflow bypasses....maybe my back-up FFF 2017?....very secluded area!!!......saw many breaching carp just in front of the tree-stump, which is inaccessible slack water..i can cast there but the current will pull my line away I think....thoughts on fishing that spot?.Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving!!....
  5. I've been pretty inactive on the forum this past winter as I usually am every winter, but I thought I'd share some picture from my last session out. I've never fished for carp in February here in Michigan but since it was around 40 degrees this past Sunday I decided to get out and try to catch a carp or two. When I showed up to the spot I wasn't to confident I'd catch because of the huge ice piles that had built up from the wind blowing in ice chunks off the main lake, but Kyle and I decided to fish anyway. We had to set up our rods on top of all the ice because the shoreline was non existent anymore. Any way I did end up catching 5 fish up to 21lbs which I was extremely happy to just be catching some fish as spring is still some time away up here. So here are the pictures, I though the ice and stuff made for some cool photos! The rods on top of all the ice! First fish! Biggest if the session at 21lb 8oz! Kyle on top of all the ice
  6. After many questions and encouragement from eager carpers, I am happy to announce the unveiling of a new CAG event. Following in the foot steps of the very successful CAG May Big 4, we have now opened up registration for the Fall version. Prizes will be announced shortly. If you thought about packing in the rods for the winter, you may want to hold off, because the fishing and competition will be heating up. So sign up, talk some smack to fellow anglers, and encourage others to sign up and compete as well. Registration is open till November 5th due to the expedited nature of the announcement. All fish caught in November will qualify as per usual big 4 rules. SIGN UP HERE Questions about the leaderboard? They should be covered HERE
