Good post. Thanks for the offer. I don't need anything at the moment. Making plans for a fall fish-in, but the guys who usually attend come for the fellowship and fun, and not for prizes or medals. I still have a decent supply of CAG brochures and stickers, so I'm probably good for this year.
Not much going on right now. It's too HOT here in GA to do much fishing (we've had a stretch of more than a month with temps at least 90, except for just 1 or 2 days). Most of us won't be fishing for more than a few short sessions until fall.
Two years ago I ran a year long contest and awarded medals (1st, 2nd, 3rd place) for the "Outstanding Carp" caught in the state. I had ZERO entries from CAG members and only a few from other anglers. As I said, most of the guys don't fish for awards. Unless they're pay lakers fishing for cash, they're just fishing for the enjoyment of it. I thought about trying it again, but based on that response, it might not be worth it. Maybe next year???
Anyway, I don't think I need anything this year. I'll let you know later if I do for next year. Meanwhile, good luck and "tight lines".

After some of the dust settled following the massive effort to rebuild the CAG website and database, as the State Chair for Georgia, I'm trying to follow up with the guys here in GA who have been active on the site.
The new format isn't very intuitive, and the member search is difficult because of the free-format entry in the location field (thus, a search for "GA" matches members in "Atlanta, GA" as well as those in "MichiGAn".
Anyway, I found your profile and see that your location is Acworth. I haven't seen any activity from you in the last 3 years, so I was wondering if you've been fishing recently. If you still live in Acworth, you might be interested in coming to our May fish-in, which will be at Salacoa Creek Park in Gordon County (I-75 north to US-411 at Cartersville, then about 25 miles north). It will be on a Saturday, but I have not yet decided between the 14th and the 21st for the date.
If you're interested, watch the CAG Calendar and/or PM me -- or email me at email@example.com.
Regardless, I hope you're still fishing, and have been catching some good ones.
