Cag Spring Fish-In/ 2012 Announcement

0 posts in this topic

I would like to announce 2012's first CAG fish-in to be held @ The Canada Centre For Inland Waters (C.C.I.W) or known as "Inland" to some. C.C.I.W is located on the north eastern shore of Hamilton harbor in Burlington (by the skyway bridge). It will officially start at 8AM and finish by 4PM. This is a free event open to anyone interested regardless of your fishing skills or if your a CAG member. Come down and meet other carpers both new and seasoned. Swop tips and carp stories. This is a family oriented event based on fun and showcasing carp angling. There is plenty of bank space and easy access to the water. Parking is near by.

I will be running a 'big fish' pot for those from 9AM-1PM for those interested. All participants will recieve a carpkit discount card worth $35. The card entitles you to a 10% discount on carpkit products for 6 months. post-2992-0-74090100-1332849111.gif

Contact me if you have any questions

Hope to see you there!

About CAG Fish-Ins

A fish in is just a casual meeting of carp anglers on the bank. Some

are elaborate- including weeks of pre baiting, bbq smokers and friendly wagers

for the biggest fish; others are just impromptu get-togethers set up so carp

anglers and new can meet to have a little fun together while fishing. Some

fish ins last for an afternoon, and some are whole weekend camp-outs. The two

things they all have in common is fun with friends and carp fishing. Most fish-ins are set up by local state chairmen of CAG, but any member can host one if

they like. Hosting a fish in can be loads of fun. You get to share your

local water with other CAG members; many of our members love to travel even

hundreds of miles to fish a new place and meet new friends.

Some people are volunteering to buy some hot dogs, burgers and snacks for the fish-In. If anyone wants to volunteer bringing a BBQ it would be much appreciated.

If you are coming from Hamilton/Niagara you will need to take a detour because the lift bridge is out. Take the Skyway and stay on the right. Exit onto the Northshore offramp. Make a left at the light and then a right at the next light onto the QEW Niagara onramp. Stay on the right and take the Eastport offramp . Make a right at the light into CCIW. Please excuse the sloppy line making but you get the idea.

Hi Guys

I'm calling the big fish pot off. ( To those who don't know what that was is when we all put money together and the biggest fish wins the money.) I will explain at the fish-In if you need to know. Sorry for any inconvienience.

The fish-In is STILL ON . NOTHING ELSE HAS CHANGED.

I look forward to Seeing you all there.

Mark

IM bringing my small bbq. You are all welcome to use it but if any one has some Coleman propane tanks to pitch in would be good, I'm bringing 2 tanks. Might be enough but I'm not sure how many dogs need cooking

Not sure, Tony. I posted that just so people know they have the option of bringing their family. Hopefully everyone will be respectful and mind their 'P&Q's" if kid's are present. I don't want people feeling uncomfortable.

Hahaha. No worries on the p's and q's , nothing she hasn't heard before. Just wondering if they'll be " playmates "for her in case she gets bored. (like that choice of words, Lorne?) I'll bring the nintendo ds as a backup.

She loves fishing and really wanted to come, hopefully the fish are biting so I can get her into one. Wanna see "pb carp on the sponge bob"?????
