  10. After a spring of fishing we finally got some footage edited, the coffee pot filled and a mug ready for some victory action ! Our first trip of the new season took us to Adams County Fairgrounds. The calm morning quickly turned into a cold, blustery afternoon. Our efforts were rewarded towards the end of the session with a with a nice low double common. We were lucky and shot some footage of a magnificent bald eagle flying over the lake. A very short video from a very cold few hours on the bankside! Hope you enjoy this teaser of the season to come! Best Regards John

    Nothing in the public realm fitting that description. I’m going to try Busch 33 next week. Been using the Panko, strawberry jello, sweet corn and hominy on my method lead, along with some Korda IB flavors. I’m hoping once I find a carp water, I’ll hook up. On on another note, I have 250 pounds of grains to boil for my particle bait.
  12. Yeah, the Asian carp will bump lines as they go past, but you won't catch any. Try to find an old lake with a feeder stream into it ( older than 15 years-better 20-30 years)......patience grasshopper!...

    Well, the carp haven’t showed after fishing there four times. I called the conservation Department and the lady checked with a fishery biologist, who confirmed that this lake isn’t a good venue for carp. He recommended a lake off the Meramec River that has been flooded for a couple of months. This lake also has a large population of Asian carp.
  14. Has Wacker baits closed it's doors or just it's store front?
  15. Earlier
  16. Awesome captures everybody !!!!
  17. I was rather lucky this spring and landed both my pb common (27lb) and pb mirror (30lb). Photo credit for the 30 goes to the local police department who showed up while I was standing knee deep in the water netting the fish.
  18. True! Now it is all about the grandkids.
  20. I want to say huge props to Kody Clayton and Sean Clayton. Congratulations to you both. Very impressed spring season and very dedicated too. You’re hard work paid off. I tip my hat to you both. And you Kody a true hardcore carper for sure my friend..👍🏼

  23. Congratulations to Kirk (MO) MOCarper for his winning tip for the month of May. Kirk wins a $25 CAG Store gift certificate. You can post Carp Tips & Tricks for June at the following link. http://www.carpanglersgroup.com/forum/index.php?/forum/171-members-only-diy-section/ Carp’n Tips & Tricks Over the years we often come across some clever ideas or neat tricks that enhance our carp fishing experience. As an encouragement to share these ‘golden nuggets’ I’m proposing that members post them in the Members Only DIY Section of the CAG forum. As an added incentive we’ll be awarding a $25 CAG store gift certificate to the best idea posted each month (based on views and responses to the topic thread and as judged by the CAG BOD). You don’t have to be the originator of an idea but it would be nice to give credit to those you think deserve recognition. I’ve posted a couple of my own to get the ball rolling so now it’s over to you!
  24. I had a blast fishing the big 4 this spring!! Thank you all for the participation and most of all the competition. And a special thanks to all who put this together. I managed to get out on the last day and put up a good number of fish. This big gem clocked in at 29.00 on the nose she’s a beauty. To everyone out there in carp land keep the lines tight and the net/mat wet 👍🏼.
  25. OMG!!! Just when I thought there was simply no way to up my tally i DOUBLED on two monsters!- this 23-3 and this 35" 22-3lbr!!!!, the latter of which wrapped around three moorings and an outboard motor, shredding the mono but it held (12lb test) til I could land it , while holding the 23lbr in my sling in the water......What an incredible, incredible ending to CAG!!!!!........So....my totals are 24-0, 23-3, 22-3 and 22-2- all from the same spot at the lake with no chumming. Tonights fish were just before a Northwest storm moved in, with wind and lightening- SO EXCITING!!!!!!!!, and my two buddies, a great blue heron and a toad (toady) present!!!!..................oh, and landed an 11 lbr earlier- a real screamer!..................................YEEEEEEEE HAWWWWWWW YALL!!!!!!!!!
