  2. Vendor Profile: RecordBaits from Attila Horvath Record Baits is making its debut with a booth at the NECC. Owner Attila Horvath is a name that will be familiar to many carp anglers. He has successfully competed in many tournaments and has influenced many anglers with his carp fishing techniques & experience learned from World Champion competition carp anglers. Attila started boilie rolling in the basement of his apartment in New York City and these prototypes baits brought him success in several tournaments. Attila then started to research both American & overseas suppliers to find high grade, quality ingredients to ensure the baits were among the best available. This research and continued improvement will never end says Attila. Stop by the Record Baits booth at the NECC and take a look at their new range of baits and tackle. You can be sure a top angler like Attila has invested a lot of time and experience in this new business. \
  3. Vendor Profiles continue with CAM Magazine Carp Anglers Magazine (CAM) was created in 2012 to promote the growth of carp angling in the USA. It evolved from the Carpaholics Anonymous group to become a monthly online publication in May of 2014. The magazine is a collection of articles by anglers with an array of videos, pictures, and testimonies of baits, tackle, tips and tactics of all kinds. The magazine promotes all styles of carp angling from Pay Lake to Euro style with features from both North American and Europe. It also features the latest tackle, baits and companies from the world of carp angling. The CAM publication is available on line and has attracted subscribers throughout the United States, Canada & Mexico and even over the pond in countries like the Netherlands, France, and Germany. Tight lines and wet nets from all of us here at CAM. We are looking forward to meeting you at the NECC!

  5. NECC Speaker Profile Dean Brookes Spring Awakenings - My Approach for Big Carp Like many UK born anglers Dean Brookes grew up fishing for a wide range of species but always found himself drawn to specimen fish. In 1990 he made the move to carp fishing, targeting mostly estate lakes in the North West of England. Over the next several years he fished many waters, including the historic 'Farmwood' which was acquired by the Carp Society and had original Leany strain fish with many over 60 years old. One of his greatest achievements was to catch a carp from Farmwood. At over 65 acres it held only 25 carp and out of 100 members that year Dean was one of only 12 who caught a fish! As a busy soccer coach & family man Dean tends to focus on fishing 8-12 hour overnight sessions, usually about once per week, in the spring and fall. In just the last 4 years he’s caught around a 100 carp over the 30lb mark with more than a dozen of these being over the magical 40lb barrier. A remarkable achievement in the USA. Dean’s presentation will explain how he targets these large pre-spawn carp in the spring with a focus on location, watercraft, baiting approaches, rigs and tackle together with a general overview of his own personal experiences. Dean is a Fox International Consultant as well as an editor for Big Carp News and the North American Carp Angler
  6. Today we are introducing Trilogy Baits in our vendor profile. Trilogy Carp Baits was born from one man’s passion and the dreams of 2 young anglers to share together the awesome sport of carp fishing. Trilogy baits have been developed for anglers who strive to catch bigger and better carp every time they go out. These specially designed baits have been proven for well over a decade by a select few with outstanding results. The baits have been developed through an alternative method, using only high quality, human grade ingredients that create a long lasting bait without the need for refrigeration. Whether you use them in day or longer sessions or even in a tournament setting Trilogy baits have been created ‘for anglers by anglers’ so you can be sure of getting the best results.

  16. I’m delighted to announce that the BOD has approved Vince Shiflet's application to the position of State Chair in Ohio. He was the State Chair of Ohio in 2010 for a few years until Craig Welsh took over the position. Since Craig has stepped down Vince has agreed to once again take up the position. Vince is looking to continue the monthly fish-ins that run from April to October. He will also welcome members new and old to the yearly social gathering in February where plans are laid for the fish-Ins, raffles are held and everyone can learn and improve their techniques. Thanks again to Vince for stepping forward and our thanks also to Craig for his past efforts and continued membership of CAG.
  17. I am delighted to announce that Barry Howard is our new Membership Director. Barry is already in charge of running the CAG store and his taking on this additional responsibility is very much appreciated.
  18. CAG Member Renewals Update. It appears that recent changes with PayPal have resulted in some members not seeing a 'Renew' button in membership section. If you are are having an issue in renewing your membership please send Willem a PM and he will get it fixed.
