  1. In my experience in creeks, the bite is very slow, very subtle in the winter. I switch from my 3oz method leads heavily packed on 9ft rods to using very little pack bait (I use the 15-30g NGT method leads and only cover the ribs), ultralight rods (5-6' Pfleuger trions), 8lb line and fish the holes that are several feet (5-10') holes. I use a pod or bank sticks but no bite alarms-very seldom do I get runs or bites strong enough to trip the alarms. The fish are very slow and I think that though they eat, they mouth the bait more slowly simply due to the cold/slow metabolism. You have to constantly watch the line and pick up when there's a slow short pull................again, just my experience, but I'm pretty consistent. if the water's high or murky, I catch very few................good luck- patience and perseverance win out!- Its not like they crawl out of the water in winter-they are there! MO
  2. Hit the creek today, tryin to prep for the FFF, and had these two, a great golden 16-8 and a darker 10-0 and lost another. Very soft bites and slow fight but beautifully fat fish!!..........good fishin all!- go to the creeks- the fish are always there!! MO
  3. Heya!- hope you had a great Thanksgiving!- I've followed the ATC for years and always wanted to go but I don't see a list, for next year- is it happening?......MO
  4. Your name: Kirk Suedmeyer Your CAG forum name: MO Carper The state or states in which you will be fishing: Missouri/Kansas Oh yea I'm in!!!!
  5. I tie my rigs with the hair long enough to hold a third fake corn kernel, but I only use two. However, I have shortened the length of the rig to about 1.5". This allows the rig to float just above the pack. To me, the pre-tied rigs are far too long; I tie all my own and feel I have more consistent catches.....Here's some creek carp from this week, including today's baby carp!
  6. That's why you go to the creeks!!!.......find the holes with riffles filling in, fish no more than halfway through the hole-chum the riffles above the hole, use small 15-30g lead and patience-in summer 10min max before recasting, in winter, 20-30......or use straight sweet corn on a korda crank hook #4 or #6..........you will catch them- no runs, just soft taps and they fight like logs, but still fun!!!......going tomorrow or Monday and I'll show-em......... MO
  7. Welcome to CAG!- you will find all of the tips and advice right here!- You are in a good spot- Texas has the numbers and sizes to keep ya happy!!!...... MO
  8. It is great to be in the stands watching this unfold!!......I on the other hand haven't had the time or places to fish this fall. It actually makes each session more important though, and, in the end, fishin's fishin!!... Great job again!!!!... MO
  9. So.....the start of my CAG Fall 2019 started with a blip....fished a local lake where I had caught fish up to 26lbs, but alas, lost one in a snag with the rig- carp 1, MO 0, then hooked a solid 8-10lbr and it ran along the shore into a snag and was gone, carp 2, MO 0, then hooked a little guy, brought to shore but off at the bank; carp 3, MO 0. Hooked a 4th and final smallie and was off halfway to the shore; carp 4, MO 0.....so............went back to the creeks and caught 6 fish, my first CAG fish at 8lb, 13-8, 8-6, and 12-0, and a little 5-6, but of all things, a bighead carp!-wouldn't have believed it, but hooked like a common- this is a small creek but it eventually runs to the Missouri. This was the only hit on a panko, dried bloodworm pack bait, and it beat the daylights out of me and escaped!..........so, my four didn't even cross 45lbs!!!.......oh well, just getting started.... MO
  10. WOW- And I haven't even started fishin!!!! :0 Well done all!... MO
  11. Well..........not going to touch that total, but WELL DONE JEROME!!!!!!
  12. heya- I paid, but my names not on the board.........can't download the logo either,but Im at conference,so can't fish til next week anyway....I'll pay again just to make sure? MO.
  13. Hey Ian I renewed, then registered, but I don't see my name on the board. I am at conference this week and can't fish till next week.....can you check for me? thanks! MO
  14. .........they were just looking to make money-didn't know anything about the rods, fishing, etc., If they did, you'd never see them again....so I doubt they're damaged, and you may just recover all of them. I'd check all your tackle/bait shops as well..... Just maddening!.....Unfortunate, as they likely have/can afford cell phones, a car, tools to open the garage, etc. so they didn't "need" the money, they just wanted more. I could almost see if a person stole a rod to fish for food/family-My brother and I give away rods/gear routinely to people/kids who really need/can't afford but also to people "just for"..........so sad. Good luck!!!....... MO
  15. Yea, I agree- I used grass stems all the time for the sweet corn, but now use the plastic stops for the fake corn- grass stems don't work well as you will lose the majority of your fake corn when you hook a fish.....too expensive (or I am cheap :)).................
