  1. Richard, Welcome to the Queen City. There are quite a few of us in the area that use the variations on the "traditional" methods you describe. However, you will find that since carp are not pressured here, simple rigs and baits are common, and most of us fish "the method" using American style packbaits (See Brian Wingard's YouTube channel or the latest video from Carl and Alex Fishing, which features the Pass brothers from Michigan). To fish most public waters in The States, you will need a non-resident fishing license for the state you wish to fish. These can be purchased online, at sporting
  2. I posted this over on Ohio Game Fishing to get the word out. If anyone has any Cowan trophy shots, post them up here: http://www.ohiogamefishing.com/community/showthread.php?t=261548
  3. Rocky Fork might actually be a good spring location. The campground area is located in a large shallow bay, which should warm quicker and provide a prime spawning area. We did have a fish-in there back in 2004 or 2005, but I only recall small carp. 2005 is a LONG time ago, when you consider the possible growth rate of carp, let alone other factors which could naturally cull large populations of small carp. Paint Creek, not far from Rocky Fork, my be another option. The Rattlesnake Creek section has a lot of backspace and is also in a shallower region of the lake. Please do not consider
  4. I'm afraid I have to pull out as well. I managed to injure my knee last week and I have been stupidly using the pain while packing as a barometer to see if I could endure the trip. I was really looking forward to seeing some individuals I haven't seen in years. I apologize for the late notice. Go Ohio!
  5. I love this venue. Count me in Ohio, but never consider me a Buckeye.
  6. Here are a couple of old favorites: RODMAN Mandisa the mirror at 26lb 8oz by TimJC513, on Flickr TIMJC 34lb 8oz common carp by TimJC513, on Flickr RODMAN Rod w/ 11-6 koi from small pond in Knoxville, TN. First fish of trip. #carp #fb by TimJC513, on Flickr
  7. Where in Cincinnati will you be staying? Like Rod mentioned, Pine Hill is only a couple minutes from King's Island/Great Wolf Lodge. I haven't fished there this year and only fished there once last year, but in years past I have landed mirrors to 28lbs and a common at 32lbs. If you are interested in fishing there, I can prebait a swim and even meet you there. The only downsides are that there is no bankside parking and you have to purchase a daily fishing pass from the Mason Community Center for $7/day. Some photos of fish from Pine Hill
  8. It sure was an awful lot of planning, just to have it all thrown out the window. I'm starting to think that Dale Hollow, is cursed, at least for me. Both trips down that have been during brutal storms. Fortunately, the bankside entertainment was enough to lift spirits. For those that want the details: <iframe width="560" height="349" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/C3Dx-hri_x8" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> and a rough approximation of the top secret location: <iframe width="560" height="350" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" src="h
  9. David, When exactly is "take a Hooters girl to work day," so I can mark my calendar for next year.
  10. You and/or Keith should consider doing a formal writeup for Discovery Month. Your whole session was in the month of October and while others have fished Dale Hollow, I doubt anyone has been within sight of your swim. http://www.carpanglersgroup.com/forum/inde...c=41872&hl=

    CCC 2010

    What is the format for the Friday night event (payout and entry), and will the Saturday night event (after the CCC) be the same? I'm just curious how much money I will be losing.
  12. I love that swim . I was wondering when the biggies would start to show down there. Thanks for the narrative.
  13. I think it would be cool to do it in the spirit of Movember where you start off clean shaven and use trophy shots of fish caught over the month to document the growth of the 'stache throughout November gaining attention for both CAG and prostate cancer. The main deterrent would be that it is similar in format to Discovery month and would be following the very next month. Piggybacking on Movember could get us some notoriety by stepping outside the fishing world to cross promote another cause. I think you can create teams for Movember so we could have an official CAG Movember group.
  14. Sounds like an idea for Movember
