The bite wasn't as great as usual at The Rocks peg in 2012. Windy City Carpers (Tracy Jourdan and myself) drew it the first day, and we managed three fish that counted. The eventual 2012 ATC champions drew it the second day. They held on for the victory, but The Rocks didn't help them much.

Tracy's first fish was a 37 pounder, BUT it was the wrong variety--a grasser. A Texas DNR official had told us the evening before the event to hold the grassers for DNR study. However, when we heard the fish would have to be destroyed, the grass carp somehow "slipped" out of our keep sack and swam away. ;)

In addition to our three commons and a grasser that day, we both caught a case of poison oak, so be careful if you draw The Rocks. On the second day, we drew one of those swims with the buoys, and the boundary ropes, and the rowers. Needless to say, we blanked. Good luck in 2014.--Frank

Not my biggest, but one of the best-looking commons I've gotten. Caught it from the Gazebo in 2012.

here is one from 2012. my partner Cory got a screaming run towards the end of the second day. A great hookset!!! This was his second coot of the day. the first wasn't hooked but instead was drug through the water holding onto the bait and let go when i reached down to unhook him.

Here's a picture of the corn boil in 2012. Of course, being in Texas, we had to use a hot tub to cook the Texas-sized corn kernels.

Carlymoomoo, just think how big the corn is in Alaska, which is twice the size of Texas. :carprock:

Looks like everyone had great times at the ATC in the past years.

More pictures... ATC is a great event. If you're there just for the fish you'll miss out.

RIP Richard -- I miss you man!
