  1. The CT Open Carp Tournament is back and being organized by local store the Fishing Factory in Middletown. The CT Carp Open is BACK!!! October 11th, 2018 through October 14th, 2018. Peg draw will be October 10th (location TBD) and awards ceremony will be October 14th (Middletown Elks Club). https://www.facebook.com/groups/313001709231412/about/ This tournament will be similar to the tourneys that were held in 2015 & 2016 with some minor adjustments. It will remain a Big Fish, Big 4, and Big Mirror tournament. Massive prize pools, $25,000 jackpot prize for establishing a new CT State Record Carp, double peg draw format, and hosted during the peak New England foliage time when carp are feeding hard! This tournament needs 40 anglers minimum for it to go off and provide the currently established prize pool. But ready for the rich part? Every angler who registers over the minimum then their entry money will be divided up 100% back into the big fish & big 4 payout categories. Don't hesitate to sign up! To sign up either go in person to Fishin' Factory 3 in Middletown, CT (forms available sun 5/20) or fill out the registration form and mail with your payment to address on form. Cost is $400/angler and anglers can fish solo or in teams of 2. Runners are optional (and free) and they will be limited to only spombing, checking depths, netting fish, and campsite duties (they cannot partake in the fishing). Proper carp care is required and local fishing licenses are required. For all your carp angling needs and for fishing licenses please stop by Fishing Factory 3! We hope to see everyone there! Please stay tuned for updates on ceremony venues, prizes, updated payout schedule after 40 anglers enter, etc. For registration forms and rules sheets please visit the "files" tab on this group. Peg maps will be uploaded as soon as the CT DEEP approves of them. Tight lines, wet nets and stay Carpy! https://www.facebook.com/groups/313001709231412/files/
  2. Please keep the feedback coming. The aim of creating regions for 2018 was to encourage more interest from other parts of the USA. I think you also have to ask the question as to why so few folk enter from other parts of the USA? There has been a lot of discussion over the years about how the Big 4 is biased towards certain areas (like New England, PA or Michigan). If you take a look at the top 3 weights or the top 10 winners for the last 5 years you'll see that is very much the case. Spring Big 4 Results 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018 First 170.11 129.13 120.12 162.09 138.10 Second 154.04 127.15 106.04 135.06 136.06 Third 143.04 122.13 106.02 129.03 122.15 Big Fish 56.04 36.10 37.00 48.04 39.05 Big Mirror 40.02 30.01 37.00 48.04 39.05
  3. Perhaps I’m missing your point regarding the Big 4 Rules and the Zones this year. Are you saying you think the ‘zoning’ limits your ability to travel in order to catch big fish?

  11. Hi Dane, Looks like you are on the leader board. So you should be all set?
  12. This years North East Carp Conference (NECC) was, by all accounts, deemed to be bigger and better than ever. There are of course a lot of folk to thank for helping make the NECC such a great event. Thank you to our speakers Joe Arvizzigno, Attila Agh, Dave Pickering & Blake Carlson for the excellent presentations. They were not only thought provoking but also entertaining. A special thanks to Peter Aarrestad, Director of Inland Fisheries for his update on the fishing in Connecticut and his continued support to help grow Trophy carp fishing here in Connecticut. Frank Warwick and Mark Pitchers thank you for taking the time to join us by the live link. I’m only sorry that the connection issues we suffered did not allow us to see you as well as hear you. We’ll do better next year! A very big thank you to our vendors especially those of you who drove hundreds & even thousands of miles. You all helped make the NECC THE place to be and to come see the very latest and best in bait and tackle as well as THE place to support all your customers carpy needs for the coming season! A special thank you to all our sponsors who provided the fabulous prizes for the raffle. We could not do this without your generosity. As a not-for-profit organization CAG relies on much needed funding we raise at such events to help support the CAG mission and to continue developing & promoting carp fishing in North America. My fellow Board and CAG members thank you! Barry Howard for handling entry and membership, bringing & setting up the CAG Store and Bob Hall for running the store and selling SO MANY raffle tickets. Dean Brookes & Steve Clow for all your help and Phil Nathan who’s remarkable eye for detail and getting things done proved invaluable. Thank you to our friends at the Elks Club who once again provided a great venue and kept everyone well fed and watered! My wife and daughter deserve a very special thank you for not only putting up with me over the recent weeks but after both being quite unwell for the past couple of weeks still managed to come and lend a hand on the day… although the Mrs is now sick again. And of course, last but not least, thanks to all of you who came along and made this such a great event. One of the key aims of the Carp Anglers Group and the NECC is to bring everyone together so we can share in our passion for carp angling. It was well worth all the effort to see so many folk enjoying themselves with friends old and new. Thank you everyone for your kind comments and messages. See you all next year!

  15. Update on Fish-In for Sunday April 22nnd... Option B it is! The weather has caught us out once again! I looked at the CT River in Middletown today and I think we'd struggle to hold bottom even with a boat anchor! Batterson Park Pond is just off Rt 9 and Interstate 84. We'll meet at the Boat Ramp (see mark on attached map) just off Alexander Road. Easiest access is off Exit 37 from I-84. Come down and hang out, fish, cast some rods or perhaps bring any tackle or bait items you might want to swap out. Anytime from first light onwards.

  21. In Fisherman February 1995 'America's Greatest Sportfish! View File In Fisherman Editor-in-Chief, Doug Stange, wrote this article around his trip to fish 130,000 acre Mille Lacs Lake in Minnesota with UK legends Bob Roberts & Peter Clapperton. It foretells much of what has now happened in the development of USA carp fishing and also of what has yet still to come. Doug has given his permission for us to share this with our CAG members in honor of our 25 year anniversary. Enjoy! Submitter (CT) Savayman Submitted 04/04/2018 Category General
