  1. Last week
  2. I'm not sure how you come to your conclusion that CAG 'dropped the ball'? Chad and others tried to find people to take over running the ATC but in the end we had no takers for 2020. I've personally talked to several folk and there are still conversations ongoing but it won't happen until someone steps up to run it.
  3. great job i need to catch a bite soon lol just fished this past weekend after not fishing for over 4 months,
  4. sadly no CAG dropped the ball had another group here locally host the tournament for them they changed a lot of things around (from total weight to big 6 even have it a month later march instead of february) and now we have to tourney i heard the locals let them know they werent going to host it again. they might make their own i heard. but at the end of the day CAG upper body didnt press to have another ATC at least it seems that way hopefully they get their stuff together. ATC has been ran by one or two CAG members in the past with assitance i dont know why it didnt happen again. Thats how many CAG members from around the US met each other with this social/ tournament event even one year off doesnt sit right ☹️ if i didnt have so many obligations with church my kids being a coach I wouldve been all for it to step up and do it. I have swims that can be made with a little work that can make it easier for marshalling. sorry for the long reply
  5. January 1 will be here soon! Register for FFF 2020!
  6. Sage advice, thanks! The spot I fished I was lucky to get out! I’ll break out my smaller rods/reels☺️
  7. No I haven’t put any time into welland. Mostly Hamilton harbour and the grand river. If you ever want to meet up just let me know.
  8. Just 23 days until FFF 2020! Are you registered?
  9. In my experience in creeks, the bite is very slow, very subtle in the winter. I switch from my 3oz method leads heavily packed on 9ft rods to using very little pack bait (I use the 15-30g NGT method leads and only cover the ribs), ultralight rods (5-6' Pfleuger trions), 8lb line and fish the holes that are several feet (5-10') holes. I use a pod or bank sticks but no bite alarms-very seldom do I get runs or bites strong enough to trip the alarms. The fish are very slow and I think that though they eat, they mouth the bait more slowly simply due to the cold/slow metabolism. You have to constantly watch the line and pick up when there's a slow short pull................again, just my experience, but I'm pretty consistent. if the water's high or murky, I catch very few................good luck- patience and perseverance win out!- Its not like they crawl out of the water in winter-they are there!

  10. Nice fish, MO! I swear it’s been 7 or 8 outings without a carp now. I must not be holding my mouth right as my grandma always said 🤣
  11. Had 3 kernels of pineapple maize on one hair rig and an orange tutti fruiti Tiger nut with pink pop op tutti fruiti maize.
  12. Went to the mouth of a creek and the Meramec River for five hours, blanked. Put a gallon of boiled seed mixture soaked in RH chili hemp oil and spimbed a quart or two of fresh boiled maize, wasn’t lazy on the baiting campaign. Had a few taps on the oatmeal-creamed corn-pineapple method, but alas no fish to show for again😩
  13. Hit the creek today, tryin to prep for the FFF, and had these two, a great golden 16-8 and a darker 10-0 and lost another. Very soft bites and slow fight but beautifully fat fish!!..........good fishin all!- go to the creeks- the fish are always there!! MO
  14. Heya!- hope you had a great Thanksgiving!- I've followed the ATC for years and always wanted to go but I don't see a list, for next year- is it happening?......MO
  15. Are there any Carp Fishing Tournaments or carp fishing events near North Dakota in the state or in any of the adjacent states? I live in Minot, ND.
  16. Another thing to keep in mind though is that the North Dakota regulations define common carp and silver carp as None-game Class III Aquatic Nuisance Species (ANS), which "can be kept for consumption if legally harvested." but "cannot be released alive back into a waterbody after they have been harvested." So apparently, catch and release carp fishing is illegal in North Dakota. I was fishing the Garrison Dam in ND, with worms and was catching suckers. A game and Fish officer came up to me and asked for my Fishing License. I asked him, "What does Harvest mean for carp fishing/" He said the rule was written that way for bowfishing. They did not want bowfishing hunters to put the carp they shot with an arrow back into the water. He said that for catch-and-release I could release them back into the body of water where the fish were caught, but could not transport them alive. They just do not want carp getting into other bodies of water where there are no carp. I am still going to send a message to the ND DNR and ask again although they never responded back last time. I will let everyone know if they say something different. If they do not respond, I plan to go to one of the DNR fishing shows and ask someone directly at one of their booths. There are lots of carp at Garrison Dam, so I think it will make a great spot to fish in 2020.
  17. August can be a tough month for fishing in our area, unless your fishing in the right area. Ive had success fishing deeper waters at this (August) time of the year or give night fishing a try if you can handle the mossies.😦
  18. Welcome Tyler. Have you done much fishing on the Welland canal?
  19. Yeah I would think so too. However the Canadian govt supporting the Salmon derby, $$$$$ is what they are after, they dont particularly ever see logic!! They are only now considering 2 rods for carp because of the embarrassment after the World carp fishing tournament was pulled out of Canada!
  20. This video says it all. Where I live, Carp are underestimated game fish. Anyone that see how quickly they can peel drag would agree! Hope you enjoy, and please let me know what you think. Thanks https://youtu.be/6ofbw6n2ZKc
