  1. While the President of CAG usually announces the Champion of the Queen Award winner, we will break with tradition this year. Behind the scenes, the BOD has unanimously voted our President, Iain Sorrell, as the 2020 Champion of the Queen award winner. Since the CAG inception, the Carp Anglers Group “Champion of the Queen” award (sometimes referred as “Protector of the Queen” award) has been used to acknowledge exceptional achievements in promoting CAG and carp angling in North America. Iain has been a tireless volunteer in the CAG organization for almost two decades. He joined CAG in 199
  2. For me, the essence of carp fishing here in RI is one word, "MIRROR". We have more mirror carp and more beautiful mirror carp than just about anywhere in the country.

  5. 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

  11. Yes, too bad that Big 4 was cancelled. But, I can understand the difficulties that fishermen face in many areas of the country. Here in the northeast we are basically in a lock down. Only travel by car to supermarkets and pharmacies. All state and local parks (where there are lots of lakes and rivers) are closed in RI. No travel out of state. However, I am lucky enough to live walking distance to some pretty good carp waters that hold good numbers of beautiful mirrors.These places are woodsy spots with no one around which is good. So, my fishing continues, though very local and limi
  12. Open water....doesn't matter the type. .When the shallow ponds are iced over, I hit the moving river waters.
  13. Snow all over me, all over the fish. Been great up here in southern New England. At this point almost 150 carp released in 2020. A warm winter has been the ticket.
