  1. Sounds that the water might not be iced out after all... I'll give it a try. Your name: Jerome Moisand Your CAG forum name: Jerome Your state or province of residence: MA The state or province of your FFF 2019 fishing venue, if it differs from your residence: same And Frank, while you're at it, please register Iain Murray (redcoat), he volunteered to be my net man... 😉
  2. It was early Christmas today! I received my prizes for the big mirror, very cool. Many thanks to Iain and to the sponsors. PS. I landed this beautiful mirror after 2 days of catching one catfish after another. 15 minutes before giving up at dusk after a long and windy day. Quite the reward.
  3. You can easily find pictures of Kody and Sean on Facebook.
  4. Well done, Sean and Kody! Amazing fish you caught! Barry, there is no freaking way you are going to beat me *again* next year... 😉
  5. Region I. 30-0lb. NY. 29lb. PA. 26-8lb. NY. 22lb. NY.
  6. Leaderboard doesn't display anything nowadays? Yes, I tried multiple browsers with my laptop, and even my smartphone...
  7. I played my last card today, caught several upper teens, but no 20+... And I needed a 30+ to catch up with Barry... LOL Oh well, I made a youngster play the last fish of the day (and probably of the year) and he was a happy dude... Made my day too.
  8. What an amazing fish... Can't recall seeing one that long... Congrats Roland!
  9. The other one was 26lb, but it wasn't mine. We had a double run with Iain Sorrell, and had a cool 56lb brace!
  10. A nice 30lb fish to end a tough day of fishing on a pleasant note...
  11. Thank you. Not a leather, it has (some) scales on the body, and the upper row of scales is regular size (leather's are really small). Just a very cool mirror. Saved the day. Well, saved the week, in truth...
  12. After two days of hard fishing in a cold wind, catching one catfish after another, here is what took my bait in my last 15 minutes of fishing... 29 pounds even.
  13. The biggest fish of my discovery story, 26 pounds and change. In a very scenic location.
  14. Fantastic! And well done managing a double run of 20s, that is impressive. Yes, seasons have a major impact on fishing and fishing locations, you're right. A few days ago, I royally blanked at a state park I fished with great success last spring. And it's October, and carp are biting all over the place... If you are in the right place, that is. You clearly were. Congrats. Do it again!
  15. And here is the link to the registration/login page for the leaderboard (took me a little while to find it, so here it is, so I can find it again!): http://ldb.carpanglersgroup.com/
  16. My first decent fish... 22lb from a brand new spot in upstate NY. Please note the BIG BIG4 sign!
  17. Please note that those fish were actually monsters compared to the one I caught on Sep 30th, as a warm-up for the Big4... This wasn't the same location at all, 3 hours of driving apart, actually. Tomorrow, enough with the babies, I'll go after the biggies... And probably blank. Oh well.
  18. I'm traveling right now, so I had to go to a copy shop to print the Big4 logo. The lady saw it, liked it, and decided (without asking me!) to print it to a double-size letter (more or less A3) format... I thought this was funny, and paid for it. Then I went fishing to a brand new spot. First catch was very small, second one was even smaller, and I decided to go get the BIG BIG4 logo from my car! Sure enough, I caught another baby in no time (I landed 10 of them before I got bored of it, and went to explore something else!). Here is the pic. And this wasn't the smallest... We really should have an extra prize for the smallest carp for this event!
  19. The perfect choice! Congratulations to a well deserving champion of the queen!
  20. The proposal described in the first post for the fall event seems an excellent compromise to me, much better balanced than the ill-formed change from last year. And yes, why not extend the event till the end of November (fishing remains excellent throughout November in most Northern states, and yes, fish will get fatter in the South by then, this sounds fine and fair). No more than 2 months though, otherwise we'd lose focus. About separate events in the spring between north and south, this made me cringe a bit to start with, a nation-wide event really should occur at the same time for everybody, but it is certainly true that the regional conditions are very different by then, and yes, this would basically end up with 3 distinct events. Why not give it a try and see what goes. It's good to experiment a bit, as long as feedback is sought for, and the changes are well communicated ahead of time.
  21. This is an absolutely gorgeous fish. Well done, Rex. And I love the passion about fishing you keep displaying...
