"WCC Warm-Up"
Big 5 Carp Tournament
Sunday, April 23, 2017
Two Rivers, WI Harbor

I've blanked and I've done relatively well at Two Rivers, Wisconsin, the home, during the past decade, of the Wisconsin Carp Championship (WCC).  The one constant is that I thoroughly enjoy fishing that venue.  Recent Facebook posts indicate that there will be no usual "Trivers" events leading up to the 2017 WCC, so I thought I'd test the waters to see if anyone would be interested in a "WCC Warm-Up" Tournament on Sunday, April 23, 2017 at the Two Rivers Harbor.

If enough sign up, a friendly "WCC Warm-Up" Big 5 Carp Tournament will be held on Sunday, April 23, 2017 at the Two Rivers Harbor.  The tournament will be held under rules similar to those used for Lee Young's Trivers ABC, Trivers Part Deux, etc. and under the following conditions:

1.  At least four anglers must show interest by posting on this thread.  If there are fewer than four interested, the tournament will simply not take place.

2.  Due to the pegs available at the harbor, the tournament is limited to 12 anglers (first to post, first in). 

3.  We will meet at the Harbor in Two Rivers at 6:00 a.m. for peg draw, entry fees, waivers, etc.   For peg choice, we will draw numbers to indicate who has first choice and so on.  Then, anglers will choose their own pegs in the order of the numbers they drew.

4.  Fishing will be from 7:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.  If few fish are caught by noon, we will possibly re-choose pegs at another Two Rivers location.

5.  There will be a $20 entry fee with 100% payout (50% for 1st, 30% for 2nd, 20% for 3rd).  Medals will also be awarded to the top three anglers.  There will be an optional $10 side-pot for most carp caught, awarded at a 60%-40% ratio if 6 or more anglers participate, and winner-take-all if fewer than 6 take part.

6.  High total weight for 5 fish wins.  You can still win if you catch fewer than five.  If there is a tie, the biggest single fish is the deciding factor

7.  Three rods are allowed.  Carp-friendly nets (long-handled ones are needed here), soft unhooking mats, and quick, catch-weigh-photograph-release procedures are essential and required.

8.  Fish will be weighed on the buddy system.

Who is interested?  Four anglers are required to make this a go.  Angler limit is 12 (first come, first served).  Post here if interested.  Thanks. --Frank Rink

It looks as if we'll have a full house (12) or close to it on April 23.  I'm going to provide a little more elbow room by marking the usual 12 pegs at the harbor area and adding another 6 pegs at the Coast Guard.  We are still fishing essentially the same water but just expanding the area.  There have been years, in April at Two Rivers, during which the Coast Guard pegs fish as well as or better than the harbor pegs.  This gives those who are in the bottom half of the peg choices some better options. 

If we run into the possibility that the East Twin is like chocolate milk (too many of us have blanked there when the water is dirty), then the entire tournament venue will switch to the West Twin at Vet's park, consistng of 12 pegs from just below the boat ramp to the bridge.

If the alewives are present again this year, we'll decide, as a group, what to do   --Frank

If the rivers cooperate, the tournament will be pegged as follows.  Anglers will choose pegs based on a draw for peg choice order.  Good luck!

I noticed on the WCC Facebook page that an April 9 event may be held at Two Rivers, limited only to Wisconsin residents.  Perhaps any Wisconsin residents (Jerry, David, Dave, Carver) who may be fishing both the Apr. 9 and Apr. 23 events can let us know how the April 9 bite was, so we can better decide on the best venue for 4/23.  Thank you.

One opening still remains for the April 23 "WCC Warm-Up" Big 5 Tournament at Two Rivers, WI.  Post here if you wish to participate.

In addition to the monetary prizes, medals will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place angler, to the top two "Total Number of Carp" winners, and to a "specialty" category winner. The "specialty" category will be announced at peg draw.  A first and second place medal will also be awarded to our top two junior anglers (age 18 and under).  So far, that means David L. and Jakub S. will receive medals

Medals for this event are pictured below.  They include 2 3/4" diameter medals in gold, silver, and bronze for 1st, 2nd, 3rd in the Big 5 event, in addition to a gold and silver for the top two junior anglers.  The top three finishers in the Big 5 event will also receive 50%-30%-20% of the entry fees for their accomplishments ($20 entry fee). (Click on the images for a larger view)

Two inch medals will be awarded to the top two anglers in the optional Total Number of Carp contest at the tournament ($10 entry).  Recipients will also receive 60%-40% of the contest pot for their accomplishments.

A two-inch "Specialty Event" medal will be awarded to the angler at this event who comes closest to fulfilling the specialty event criteria (announced at peg choice).  For this tournament, the "specialty event" winner will also receive a small bait or tackle prize.
