  4. CAG Monthly Photographic Competition ‘The Essence of Carp Fishing in North America’ CAG members are invited to submit photographs that capture what is unique and exciting about carp fishing in North America. Each month the winner will receive a special prize and recognition. The photos do not have to be of someone holding a fish (this is NOT a Trophy fish competition) but they should be recognizable as being related to carp or buffalo fishing in North America and should reflect the capture of a special moment. The ‘essence’ of carp fishing in North America might memorialize a remarkable scale pattern, someone’s first carp, a group of friends fishing together, a spectacular sunset, time of year or perhaps a dramatic background or landscape. The judges will be fellow members who should pay particular attention to the subject matter and composition and not just the photographic or editing skills. In the event of a tie or any disputes the CAG BOD will be the final arbitrator. Each month we’ll announce a winner and award a prize or voucher (worth $100) with the winning photo appearing in a forthcoming NACA magazine as well as the CAG Forum Site and Facebook page. The top 3 will also receive CAG Medals. The Rules: The entrant must be a Full CAG Member & the owner of any copyright to the photograph. An entrant may submit a maximum of TWO photos only in each month. The photograph must have been taken in the submission month (final date for submissions is 3 days after the end of each month) All fish photos must demonstrate appropriate carp care and catch & release Each submission must include the following details: 1. The type of device (e.g. camera or phone) used. 2. The date the photo was taken. 3. Location (nearest Town and State). Entries should be submitted to the “CAG Essence of Carping Competition” under the appropriate "Month" below. Entrants agree that CAG may use or display a submitted photo on the CAG website and Social Media resources.

  8. I have also been remiss by not posting to this thread sooner. But being a life long, and practiced procrastinator I suppose posting just a week late is tolerable. I've been getting more than my fair share of fishing in this year, but haven't been setting the world on fire with a lot of fish or many big fish. The first week in April started off with a bang with that one big one and several more in the high teens. I must have patted myself on the back too hard because the blanks then started rolling in, session after session, and nothing was working. I pig headedly stayed on the Mohawk knowing it would suddenly pick up and I would start hauling, as I've always done there in April and May in the past. That never happened. I did a tremendous amount of experimenting with different baits and rigs, but to no avail. Finally the water chestnuts came up and closed off much of the "good" shoreline, and I moved to the Hudson. And started catching a few fish. So far I've caught 47 carp, with five twenties mixed in with mostly all doubles. But with the hours I've put in, that's not as good as it sounds. The canal corporation has had both rivers down to a trickle all spring, with the locks closed until the past week. Perhaps that had something to do with the scarcity of fish. Scarcity of carp I should say. There has been no scarcity of catfish on the Hudson. It seems those pests know when and where I'm coming and school in front of me by the dozen. I've been fattening them up with chum and tubs of pack bait all season.

  10. By a unanimous vote, the BOD has approved Louis-Philip Lortie as the CAG state chair for Quebec. Thank you Louis for volunteering for this position and good luck.
  11. nice captures keep 'em coming.
  12. Nice work, and a stunning fish! Fair play to you for releasing it. You know and we know that it's a record. What a special moment.
  13. You absolutely did the right thing releasing that fish! And as far as I'm concerned, and I'm sure everyone else on here, you are the owner of the RI state record. Congratulations.
  14. Nice session! - sometimes its just nice to catch a couple in a short time and yes- river/creek carp are always stronger- they constantly swim against current-even if it seems like slack water, it isn't; though mostly smaller on average.......fishin's fishin!! MO
  15. I agree- state record carp for Rhode island- that's enough info for me!!! Way to go Dave!!!! MO
  16. Spectacular! Kudos to your sense of conservation by returning this beautiful girl. Classy!
  17. What a beautiful river to fish.
  18. Last week the unthinkable happened. I landed what I believe is the first 40 lb. common carp to be caught in RI waters. The massive fish weighed exactly 40 lbs., and was 40 inches long. It was caught on a hair rig combo bait that was made up of a kernel of maize along with a white, artificial, plastic corn. This combo bait has been a killer for me all spring. Unlike in other nearby states, thirty pound carp are rare here in RI. There are a few low thirties landed every year in RI, but 40 lbs. is a mark few sharpies would have ever thought possible. My previous biggest carp in RI was 36 lbs., a fish thought to be the biggest ever taken up until now. The crazy thing about monster fish is that it was landed in exactly the same spot that I caught my 36 lber. eight years ago. It is not the same fish. This forty pound carp would have easily shattered the official RI state record of 32 lbs. But, to claim that record in this state, the fish must be taken to an official weigh station and weighed. Knowing this fish would have died, I chose to release it in good shape quickly after a few photos. Note that had it been caught in many other states, I could have easily claimed the record with the info I had. The fish was weighed on a certified Reuben Heaton scale, I got a measurement, I had a witness and I had a photo. A fish this size is a female capable of producing eggs that will produce offspring that could grow to enormous sizes. No way I would keep a fish like this just for the official record. And, besides, I just might meet up with her again some day!
  19. Hey all!! I've been remiss in posting the last couple months, mostly due to the covid-thing, but also diversifying my fishing a little-boat/bank/day/night/fly/spinning/sets, etc. etc trout, bluegill, largemouth, spotted bass, red ear sunfish, green sunfish, white bass, drum, white and black crappie, golden shiners, channels, flatheads.-just passed the 400 count across species, but here's a compilation of some of my recent carpies in the past month or so- 2-21lbs, pushing 14lb average and have found a spot with no less than 13lbrs, but, just not as often-1-2/night instead of 1-2/hour.....hope everyone doing well- more updates more frequently!.....MO
  20. Is there anyone living in North Dakota that fishes for carp? How about Smallmouth Buffalo?
