  1. I only got mine in CT yesterday (Monday). The mailing house uses bulk mail so it can take a while.

  4. Unfortunately the admins won't admit anyone with such sparse Facebook profile information. Some basic info, fishing photos, friends etc will help convince them you are a 'real' person.
  5. The 25th Anniversary issue of the NACA is now at the printers! Here's a preview of the cover together with the special 25 anniversary year pin mounted on a presentation card. I'll announce when mailing to CAG members begins in the next couple of weeks. Please note that we use bulk mail so I 'd imagine you should see its arrival before the end of November. >> If you have changed address recently PLEASE be sure to update your address in your member profile! << It's taken a lot more work to source some of the material and images than anticipated... Thanks for your patience everyone!
  6. At the CCC 2018 Plenary meeting it was my privilege, as CAG President to award Barry Howard the Champion of the Queen Award for 2018.

Congratulations and thank you Barry!

  8. CAG Spring Big 4 2019... I would welcome some input as we look ahead to planning this event. One of the key issues is which months to hold the Spring Big 4. Clearly timing of the spawn in different states is a key factor that influences the size of fish. So first Question - which TWO months do carp typically spawn in your state?
  9. The overall feedback is certainly very positive to run the Fall Big 4 October 1st - November 30th. The Spring Big 4 is still work in progress and I've asked folk on Facebook and here to give their input on the typical 2 month spawning window for each state. Once we have the data we can make some decisions and have folk review the options. Thanks everyone!
  10. *Call to Arms! State Chairs Needed!* We are in need of a few good anglers to step up and help their state, and their resident anglers, to help spread the word for this amazing species/sport! Below is a list of the state chair responsibilities, as well as a list of states that are still needing a state chair. Please let me (Chad Woolard (TX) djkleen02) know if you are interested, and we can discuss further. Our goal is to get a state chair in place for all 50 states, and then some! Requirements include, but are not limited to: 1. Host at least one event per year, two events if possible 2. Submit all events on the CAG forum calendar 3. Actively promote CAG and help recruit new members 4. Keep in communication with all of your states members (forum or social media) 5. Create a Facebook group for your state (i.e. "Carp Anglers Group - North Dakota") 6. Be active on social media and/or the forum to help other anglers/members Items available upon request: 1.CAG Promotional Brochures 2.Business cards 3.Event Medals Open States: Alabama Alaska Arkansas California Delaware Florida Hawaii Idaho Iowa Kansas Kentucky Louisiana Maine Mississippi Montana Nebraska Nevada New Hampshire New Mexico North Carolina North Dakota Oregon Pennsylvania South Dakota Utah Vermont Washington Wyoming
  11. I certainly think we should make the Fall Big 4 to run Oct 1 - Nov 30th as that seems to cover all states quite well. As for the Spring that might need to be a different scenario as the spawn in TX and other states takes place as early as mid March. Perhaps we run a Southern State Big 4 for March & April and Northern May & June? That way there is no overlap and for folk who want to travel they can enter both events?
  12. Posted from Facebook. Responses from Keith Thompson & David Moore
  13. Iain you have been a true & loyal supporter of CAG over many years. In your capacity as State Chair you helped create a solid foundation not just in MA but around New England. Thank you for all you have done and we hope you will continue to join us at fish-ins and other events as time allows.
  14. Congratulations to Lee Hurn on becoming the new CT State Chair. I know Lee will do a great job and will have the support from fellow CT Carp Anglers You can message Lee via his CAG Name: (CT) Lee
  15. After listening to the feedback from the Spring Big 4 competition the CAG BOD has voted in support of the following. 1. Starting with the Fall Big 4 2018 CAG will return to prizes being awarded to the TOP TEN BIG 4 Fish winners (i.e caught across ALL 5 regions of North America) (see prize list below). This returns to the original format in recent years. 2. Additional Prizes will be given for the Biggest Common and Biggest Mirror 3. NEW - A Photo Plaque will be given to honor the Biggest 4 Fish winners in each of the 5 Regions (anglers will be required to indicate the state in which those fish were caught). There will no additional prizes. 4. Entry Fee will remain at $10 for the time being. 5. Date will be as follows: Fall Big 4 will run October 1st - November 15th (please see note at the bottom)* Top Ten Prizes (based on retail value of prize or gift certificates) 1st - $300 2nd - $150 3rd - $100 4th - $75 5th - $50 6th thro' 10th - $30 each We hope this proposal will not only recognize the honor the efforts of ALL anglers taking part but also continue to encourage anglers in regions with smaller average sized fish to take part. * We've also received suggestions to extend the end date for the Fall Big 4 to run from Oct 1st - Nov 30th 2018. This would allow States in warmer regions a better 'window' of opportunity to catch fish as the water temps become cooler. We believe this is a good idea and would like to go with these extended dates. Now it is your opportunity to speak up. We hope to announce this Fall Big 4 Format by the middle of September at the latest. The Big 4 Regions plus Region V = Canada & Mexico
  16. It is easy to do! Click on the Store tab in the Menu bar at the top of the page. Once you click on Addresses under the My Details tab you will be able to see your mailing address. If it needs changing then simply click on the Edit button just below the address.
  17. Apologies they are up now. I posted a review in the eNews then completely forgot to post them in the usual place. Thanks for the positive feedback on the Business Supporter program. We need to keep working on this as there are increasing demands on vendors for support & not just from CAG.
  18. Event runs for 6 weeks from Sept 1 to October 15. Details While many CAG events are based on fish size and number, Discovery Month is based on writing, photography and documenting an angler’s success or even failure. That’s because behind every fishing trip is a story! A Discovery Month story should highlight the adventure and experience of carp fishing rather than a list of the fish that were caught. Discovery Month is a FREE competition. You do not need to complete a registration form but you must be a CAG member. You just need to go out and fish a new venue (new to you) and report on your experiences (for example what you learned, what you did that worked or did not work, any fish captures or not, why you chose this spot to fish and so on). Rules will be posted in a separate thread but remain the same as past years. Discovery Month runs from September 1st until October 15th 2018. Only stories that took place in this time period will count. Ideally, contestants will start to post their experiences from October 1st to 15th but feel free to post them anytime up to Midnight of the end date. A separate thread will be created to post reports and experiences. Prizes This year we will offer FOUR prizes. We will have 1st place awards for One Adult & One Junior (under 16) CAG member. There will also be additional prizes for Best Photo plus another for the Best Video submission. Please note that all winners will be determined by a CAG Member poll. For more details on Prizes, Rules and Entries please follow the Link Below (access for Paid CAG Members Only).
