Introduce Yourselves

Recommended Posts

I'm hoping some of our regulars who frequent this Forum will introduce themselves. We have a great bunch of guys (both CAG members as well as non-members) here in RI who fish together and share ideas.

Let me add a few things that may not have been included above. I am retired so I get to fish A LOT. In fact, I carp fish just about every day in the morning and sometimes at night also. I am also a fanatical stiper fisherman and I tend to do that at night. My claim to fame in the fishing world is that I have landed over 50,000 striped bass from the shore, a feat few fishermen, if any, have duplicated. I manage to catch a lot of carp from the state waters as well as from nearby MA waters. I especially enjoy river fishing and love fishing the Blackstone, Merrimack and CT rivers. Here in RI there is very little carp fishing pressure and I often fish places in northern RI that no one has ever caught carp before. It' s almost like fishing private waters!

I took over as state chairman of the CAG here in RI 6 years ago. At the time, I was the only CAG member. Now we have 12 members and we seem to have many newcomers sign up every year. I enjoy running the group and try to get out and fish with all our members.

Hey Guys, My name is Chris. I am a soon to be retired commercial diver and a fanatical kayak fisherman from the south shore of MA. I was introduced to carp fishing last fall and am completely hooked. I also fish for stripers and largemouth. I would love the oppertunity to fish with some of you weathered carp fisherman. Question,I have done a fair amount of fishing in the upper reaches of the Taunton river, but haven't tried it for carp yet. Any one fish it?

There are rumors that there are carp up there, but we have no confirmed catches from that area. That is an area in MA that we know little about. Good luck if you try.

Hey guys, my name is Paul and i'm a carp angler from the UK. I moved to Attleboro, MA 6 years ago at 18 and only recently found out there were carp in the states and even better locally. So far i have tried both Lake Mashapaug and Scott's Pond along with some local ones, so far no luck at all. Would love to chat with some of you guys about RI/MA Carp fishing maybe figure out what i'm doing wrong, also be nice to find some people to fish with. I'll be back at Scott's Pond today next to the fire station and also trying out the other side of Scott's Pond where there are garages and a boat place, seems to be better access there. Do they not like curried corn over here? :rolleyes:

Hi All, I'm Jeff Allard. I've been fishing RI and Carp for a handful of years now with some great success so far. I found the key to success is to fish with as many other carp anglers as possible, ask lots of questions and watch everything they do. In doing this you will get many new ideas, sometimes conflicting, but it'll give you many new things to try for yourself. I'm always happy to fish with anyone, newbie or seasoned to share ideas so feel free to contact me. I'm in Northern RI and do a lot of fishing in the Blacksone River.

I'm new to the board and while I live in Southeastern Mass I do a lot of my carp angling in RI. Years ago I fished with a transplanted Englishman named Nigel, I've lost touch with him and carping too. Time to start again seriously.
