  2. they have a couple near KC Kirk should be able to hook you up
  3. welcome!..be sure and join the CAG fb
  4. I have been doing research for a while on the impacts on all of the "invasive" species and in a nutshell this is what seems to happen, 1st a population explodes then after seeks equilibrium...gobies have made the smallmouth bass population boom, also I have talked to carp anglers in the great lakes including carp flyfishing guides at beaver island and commons eat gobies, do gobies eat fish egg? sure just like bluegills do...many times the sky is falling on what ever invasive of the month is..its a SCREAM for $$$$..anyone who's old enough remembers just how nasty the water was in the great lakes, zebras def cleared the water and fish populations got better....the big issue was cleaning the mussels off things in the water....it was an issue with barnacles in salt water so the tech to address that issue existed...the silver carp issue..seems that traditional game fish feed heavy on them and get fat, the illinois river is experiencing a game fish boom because of them.....now I see the black carp is the next bad fish, they eat native mussels and they will take over the world....just another scream for $$ to watch them or else......I am all for good science, yet we risk the boy that cried wolf situation, I think this winters bitter cold has killed back many non-native species because over our last 10 years the winters have been mild, just like the global warming situation....anyone who wants can google up tons of data....we have been warming ever since the end of the last last age, some 13k years ago, and since the 1850's we have been having good weather data and have had faster warming...the big question is wether man is causing it......want to know how minor mans effect is on weather? google the year without a summer...a volcanic eruption caused weather to get much colder short term, snow in colonial new England in June, 1816 two foot of snow fell as far south as Virginia!...so many things have effected earths weather, the last 5k years have been some of the most stable....its a fascinating subject for anyone who wishes to read about it
  5. I know how much work people have done that make an organization like CAG run, many times the bulk of what is heard is complaints, yet I would like to take this post to thank everyone who has stepped up all these years, carp angling is at that tipping point.... so many things are on the edge of our sport exploding across the USA. You can see it , feel it, even taste it...so much is being done behind the scenes...so much great news is so close it hard not to get excited....this is your time to step up and volunteer in some small way, it could be making polite posts about carping on a local fishing FB... getting a few carpers together and picking up trash at some local fishing holes.... to manning a table at a sports show handing out flyers....or sharing a day fishing with youth or perhaps a veteran/wounded warrior.....so many kind acts..CAG has 1st always been about sharing what a blast it is to fish for carp.... Some of the best people I have ever met are carpers, so take someone new fishing, that more than anything grows our sport, social media is a tool to reach out to new fishing buddies, Meaasge someone who's is interested and new, Go out and fish somewhere in 2018 that no-one ever fished for carp before...someone did that at Austin all those years ago...or dale hollow ....or lake fork..and all the other great places that remain secret until that day we no longer worry about its destruction. here is to a great 2018!!!! .
  6. Sad a person that so much started putting Carp on the USA map...life is short
  7. I did an survey a while back and about 12% of fly anglers chase "golden bones" and its growing....considering how wide spread carp are vs trout its no surprise
  8. wow... crazy mofos!...LOVE IT!!!!!!.......this has to be the coldest FFF ever
