  1. Hi there, Access to NC lakes is usually limited. All the Catawba Valley Lakes hold carp, some are big. James is full of them, find some public bank Access. Mountain Island is also good. Hickory difficult, Access and fish numbers.. Rhodiss has plenty as does Lake James...check out the State Park.
  2. Recommend you do not pay for fish tanked from our N.C. public waters. That would be a great start.
  3. I use both (soaked and cooked) in my mix, along with other sized particles (pigeon mix, maples etc) . They perform different purposes. The cracked corn will get them digging around, and hopefully eating the larger particles, such as maize. Depends what you are trying to achieve I suppose...
  4. I would like to participate in CAG's FFF 2019! Your name: Tim Marshall Your CAG forum name: UKTim Your state or province of residence: NC The state or province of your FFF 2019 fishing venue, if it differs from your residence:
  5. Just seen this. I strongly suspect we are now well connected on the Crabtree FB page. If not, do message me 919360-9747 Tim
  6. Agree, another great video by the young English lads, and I was so pleased how well the Pass brothers handled those 'tricky' southern day ticket lakes. Some packbait skills on display too! And a home 30 at the end, brilliant.
  7. Hi Tim, I have just accepted a job with the NCWRC and will be located somewhere near Raleigh (within ~30mi of Nashville, NC). I was wondering if there is anything you can tell me about fishing there and where my best hope of a 30+ would be (if you don't mind telling!)? I was wondering if anyone had tried the tidal rivers that you know of? They look to me like they might have some really big fish. Thanks for any help! Regards, Evan

  8. Hi Mark, I've listened to, and enjoyed most of the first 8. Particularly likely the Hughes and Holmes sessions. Much to learn there, even for a very old school carper. Some even translates to our fishing over here!! Hope you get the support to continue for a long time.
  9. Hi Eric. Most of our known carp fishing in NC is Raleigh and west. But we know there are carp in the tidal waters close to Jacksonville. The Neuse and Cape Fear river systems definitely contain a good stock. Let us know if you head west in NC and we'd be happy to share what we know. Do let us know what you find down there...
  10. Thanks a lot for these e-zine pointers! I had subscribed to Advanced Carp Fishing (via Pocketmags) for 2012. Have to admit that for me, the format was challenging to read (Windows Laptop user) and have about 6 months worth not touched. I have resubscribed to hard copy Carpworld for 2013 (arm-and-leg, yes) and just received January (they had some distribution issues, apparently). I'll certainly test drive someof these on Kindle too.... Does anyone else feel that the tactics & bail approaches described for much UK pressured-carp fishing does not translate for them for wildwater US fish?
  11. Lovely and interesting looking fish. More, please!
  12. Lovely looking spots. The boats do find them....!
  13. A monster...... what a fish. These rivers........ what else is in them?
  14. Well done! Looking forward to see what you catch next......
  15. Pawel ..... this marvellous catch gives us all hope that these fish exist in yet more places. Sincere Congrats to you.. and to Matt for the pioneering work. A wonderful Feb fish too.
