  1. Cristian, im going to try my absolute best to make it down there for the ATC this year. Two years of not going down killed me. You and your bro have held onto the trophy for long enough time to bring it back to MI muhahaha lol ?
  2. With Fall fast approching I would like to share with you guys a collection of photos that have been captured over the course of this summer by myself and my friends and family. Honestly they are all closer to family. All the fish pictured with the exception of the mirrors are 20lb-36lb. It has been an awesome summer with some steller results every time we have hit the bank. I am very thankful to be able to enjoy these beautiful fish that we all love with some of the best people i could ask to share the bank with. Unfortunately i dont go on CAG as much as i used to which is why this post is so pic heavy. I hope you guys enjoy and i wish you all the best of luck this Fall!
  3. For those of you not on Facebook, we created a video of our week long session on Dale Hollow this spring. I hope you guys enjoy, and let us know what you think!
  4. Welcome to the group! Most of the core group of Michigan is located somewhere around Detroit. However there are a group of us that venture over to the west side on a decent basis.
  5. Sorry guys just now seeing these replys. A massive baiting campaign was used involving several key elements. The first and in my opinion most important element was quality k1 baits boilies, the second was range cubes (absolute gold to any baiting campaign imho), and the third was a quality mix of particals containing maiz, chicken feed, whole oats, Rolled oats, sweet feed pellets, crack corn, sweet corn, and panko bread crumbs. this was added in every two days at about 60-70 pounds a pop for over a month before seeing the first signs of life on this particularly small water. The head of fish is just so small that to get them activly feeding to a point where we could catch them we had to have nearly the entire population in front of us at once lol. After doing this campaign and starting off with my hopes of success so low and then haveing it work out so well my opinion is that you can catch from Literally any water in the usa that has an active head of carp in it if you are persistent and use the right bait.
  6. My 2015 season is starting off with a bang! I have captured another new PB and already my 8th carp over 30lb with this stunning 40lb 2oz Michigan Record Mirror!! And a fully scaled to boot. My father and I have been working extremely hard this year in order to make this PB possible. I would like to thank Bogdan, Mihai, and Istvan at K1 Baits! Without you guys this would never have been possible. With the help of K1 Baits we have been, and will continue baiting this new venue. This has been an exhausting campaign as this venue is over three hours and 200+ miles away from home. But it's results like these that make it all worthwhile! This fish just goes to show that hard work and a diligent baiting campaign using top quality baits will pay off. Again thank you K1 Baits for making this possible and believing in our efforts!! without further ado here is my reward for all the hard work, a true stunner in my eyes. 40lb 2oz of Michigan Record Mirror!!

  11. New Personal Best 34lb 14oz Mirror, and a nice looking FSM to boot.
  12. If there is one thing I have learned in life, it's that if your not going to go for broke, you mine as well not go at all. And when my girlfriend Courtnie and I planned this trip.... we defintly had this thought lingering in the back of our mind. With that in mind I ramped everything up. Instead of a week long trip let's do three, instead of 20 pounds of boilies let's take 90, instead of a couple hundred bucks to explore the beautiful state of Tennessee let's take a grand. My thought's preparing for this trip were, let's live it up while we are young and we still can! This is the time in our lives for small paychecks and big adventures. The bucket list is gathering more checks and the bank acount is receiving fewer. With everything spinning in my head trying to prepare for what is most certainly my biggest adventure to date, the one thing that was not hard to decide was the venue. Dale Hallow has been in my crosshairs for quite a long time, and most certainly on my bucket list. With the venue chosen... and everything in order, nothing stood in our way but an eight hour drive with a Suburban fit to burst with gear. When we planed the trip we figured we would fish about half the time we were there, and adventure the other half. So this left about a week and a half to break PB's and have the time of our lives. Well let me tell you boys and girls, that is what we did. In the time we were there we broke three PB's, caught five fish over 30, and had an absolute blast... on and off the water. The fish worth listing went 35lb 4oz, 34lb 14oz, 31lb 0oz, 30lb 10oz, 30lb 1oz, 29lb 2oz, and 27lb 6oz. We spent time on the bank with some of the absolute hands down best company we could ask for, and I could not even tell you how many laughs we had in our down time. Overall this was one of the best experiences I have ever had. I would like to think I have learned and grown from this trip, and moving forward with the rest of this year, I may not top these last few weeks, but I'm darn sure going to try my best. Here's to a great 2015 for everyone!Tight lines, wet nets, and screaming drags... Go get em boys. 34lb 4oz PB Mirror And there she goes off to fight another day!
