  3. Great to see some top entries for the September competition. Keep them coming!
  4. And don't forget that the photos do not have to be of someone holding a fish... The photos do not have to be of someone holding a fish (this is NOT a Trophy fish competition) but they should be recognizable as being related to carp or buffalo fishing in North America and should reflect the capture of a special moment.
  5. Yes photo must be taken in the month of the competition. So September 2020 to qualify for this current month.

  7. Please cast your vote in the poll that follows this post! Photo A: Mirror Magic Photo B: Got Turtle
  8. Have you tried an iPhone remote for taking pictures? This might be an ideal option as you can hold the fish AND then operate the remote when you are ready to take a photo. $6 via Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Bestshoot-Wireless-Bluetooth-Shutter-Smartphones/dp/B07BLWY9BP or other options here: https://www.bestreviews.guide/iphone-remote-for-photos
  9. Would a small stool or upturned bucket to sit on help? What kind of photo set up do you use? Some offer remote trigger options instead of relying on a self timer which allows more time to get settled and in position to take a photo.

  14. Instead of fluoro use 30lb braid to tie your rigs. It will fish much more effectively. As also noted make the hair shorter so the bait hangs 1/4 - 1/2" below the hook bend. Good luck!
  15. Are their restrictions on floating the Blackstone? http://www.dem.ri.gov/programs/fish-wildlife/freshwater-fisheries/troutwaters.php http://www.dem.ri.gov/programs/fish-wildlife/freshwater-fisheries/index.php

He worked tirelessly in making the ATC a truly great event & helped so many newcomers get into carp fishing. Neil was renowned for boundless energy and generosity. We are hugely grateful for everything Neil did for CAG over many, many years, including his time as CAG Membership Director. On behalf of all our members we extend our condolences to Neil's family.
  18. CAG Membership Drive For over 26 years the Carp Anglers Group (CAG) has been dedicated to introducing anglers in North America to the excitement of catch & release carp fishing as well as the protection of trophy carp. Strength in Numbers: One of the critical factors toward ensuring the protection of trophy carp (especially from indiscriminate bow fishing and unregulated or illegal movement of fish) is the continued growth of our membership base. Simply put - More members equals a greater presence, influence and representation to help grow appreciation and respect for carp and ca
  19. It is available to listen here: https://bigcarpnews.podbean.com/ I believe it will also be available on other podcast services such as Spotify etc. Well worth a listen. Mike Dragone is a first class angler and not just for carp. I've been lucky to know Mike for 25 years. Great guy!
