  1. This weekend Saturday June 29th 2019 - CAG Social Thomas Bull, NY This social will be held on a NY free fishing day. That means no fishing license is required for anyone from anywhere. That being said it is a great opportunity to get people from everywhere together to wet some lines and teach the youngsters a thing or 2. The venue is just a few miles off I-84 in the town of Montgomery NY 38 min from PA & NJ and 50 min from CT. This social is aimed towards introducing the next generation of carp anglers to the sport and or helping them hone in on there skills. Bring your kids and their friends. We would prefer if you brought you own bait and tackle and maybe an extra pole or 2 if you could, but if you don't have the proper gear don't worry we will get you set up. This park lake was stocked with Mirror carp some time ago. It is believed that there are mirrors up to 20lb but the majority of the stock are in the 5-12 lb range. The fish see bread often from people feeding the birds and do respond to corn and other hook baits. I hope to see some of you there. Tight lines until then. Johnny Jackets
  2. Congratulations to Kirk (MO) MOCarper for his winning tip for the month of May. Kirk wins a $25 CAG Store gift certificate. You can post Carp Tips & Tricks for June at the following link. http://www.carpanglersgroup.com/forum/index.php?/forum/171-members-only-diy-section/ Carp’n Tips & Tricks Over the years we often come across some clever ideas or neat tricks that enhance our carp fishing experience. As an encouragement to share these ‘golden nuggets’ I’m proposing that members post them in the Members Only DIY Section of the CAG forum. As an added incentive we’ll be awarding a $25 CAG store gift certificate to the best idea posted each month (based on views and responses to the topic thread and as judged by the CAG BOD). You don’t have to be the originator of an idea but it would be nice to give credit to those you think deserve recognition. I’ve posted a couple of my own to get the ball rolling so now it’s over to you!
  3. The 2019 CAG Carp Classic (CCC) will take place on Saturday September 28th along the Des Plaines River, Joiliet IL ! Fish-In on the Friday 27th plus an optional to enter tournament at the same venue Sunday 29th. More details to follow in the CAG Carp Classic Forum section! Chris Labucki was the big winner in 2018... who will be the winner in 2019?
  4. Please write to Tennessee email FishingReg.Comments@tn.gov to propose protecting trophy carp from being taken from Dale Hollow Reservoir and sold to other lakes. Here is my letter. Please feel free to write your own response or copy from mine: The rapid growth in the catch and release of trophy carp has brought anglers to Dale Hollow Reservoir in search of its remarkable, trophy sized fully scaled mirror carp. Carp anglers come from all over North America as well as parts of Europe often fishing for periods from a few days to 1-3 weeks at a time. The anglers spend significant tax dollars and often rent house boats to access key areas of the reservoir. They bring significant economic opportunity to TN & KY by extending the business opportunities before and after the regular tourist season (April, May and Sept, Oct & Nov). Paul Hunt of Canada with a Dale Hollow Fully Scaled Mirror Carp Unfortunately it has come to our attention that commercial operations are catching and removing trophy carp (possibly catfish & as well) from Dale Hollow then transporting the live fish for sale to small ‘paylakes’ and ponds in North Carolina and other states. This is not only detrimental to the stocks of trophy carp in Dale Hollow but also brings the risk of transporting unwanted species or invasives such as zebra mussels or hydrilla, especially as these commercial operations are also taking & moving live fish from other lakes and rivers around the USA. We would propose introducing restrictions on the taking and movement of common carp (especially of trophy size over 30”) to protect the long term fishing & economic prospects of common carp fishing in Dale Hollow Reservoir. The unique nature of the fully scaled mirror carp in Dale Hollow makes them a very valuable resource. The taking of common carp over 30” has been shown to rapidly diminish the number of trophy fish in a water. Trophy common carp are usually considered to be fish in excess of 30 inches. They can reach weights in excess of 50lb and may be upwards of 15-20 years in age. Catch & Release anglers go to great lengths to ensure the care and safe handling of these trophy fish to ensure they can be released to grow bigger and bring pleasure to other anglers in the future. In Europe catch and release fishing for trophy carp is now worth an estimated US$ 7 billion. We hope you will consider introducing regulations to limit or prevent the taking of trophy common carp from Dale Hollow Reservoir. I would be happy to help answer any questions you might have in relation to trophy carp fishing or proposed regulations. Sincerely,
  5. The Fishin’ Factory in Middletown will be bringing a huge range of the latest & very best in carp tackle & bait to the Carp Conference on Saturday!
  6. We are monitoring the CT River carefully... The flow is up due to recent snow melt up north and temps stuck around 40F. Steve Clow took a look along Harbor Park in his lunch break today and said he could hold bottom with 5oz at 25yds out with 2 hours before low tide (so very much on the outgoing). Low tide on Sunday is 9:52 am so it should be fishable from around 9 am until around 3pm. One positive is that the higher water level will make netting fish easier!
