All weight verifiers must make sure that the weigh sling is tared on the scale prior to weighing the fish. Let us know if you have any questions or concerns!

  8. Just a heads up... There are still a few teams that don’t have a partner yet, and there are teams on the waiting list. If you are still unsure of who your teammate will be, you may want to consider teaming up with another angler without a partner, so we can open up another spot. If you are considering dropping out, please let us know ASAP, so we can get another team on board. Let us know if you have any questions. Thanks!
  9. About ATC 2018 Wednesday March 21st - Corn boil, rules, and BBQ at the Wyndham Hotel Thursday March 22nd - Peg draw at Wyndham Hotel and Fishing Day 1 Friday March 23rd - Peg draw at Wyndham Hotel and Fishing Day 2 - Awards Banquet at Restaurant Whats the same and whats different: 32 Teams It will continue to be a two-person team event. Teams will be allowed one runner, who will not be allowed to touch any rod/reel with bait, or fish on. Draw will remain the same, with Chad pulling a team name out of a hat. That team will pick first, and then they will draw the next team out of a hat. Rinse and repeat. On day one, teams will pick in order, drawing two pegs and choosing one, within 15 seconds. Day two, the same procedure will apply, with teams drawing in the reverse order of day one. 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place winners will be determined by Big 6 format Teams DO NOT need to have 6 fish to qualify Corn Boil will still be at the same place and time (Wyndham hotel pool area), and good ol' Texas BBQ will be the fare. Traditional buckets will contain scorecards, and goodies. Lunch will be provided for both anglers, on both days, by Thundercloud Subs, or Delaware Subs. Teams may choose from a limited selection of subs when registering online (Turkey or Ham). Post event celebrations and prize giving will be held at Threadgills on Riverside Dr, near the S. 1st St. peg. Teams must choose from the restricted menu, which will be available at the banquet dinner. Non-team members/guests choosing to attend may pay $15.00 to join in for banquet food. Special Award for the largest Carp (Commons, Mirrors, or Koi). Special award for the largest Smallmouth Buffalo. Special award for the largest Grasser!

Entry fees can include membership at $25 for one non-member ($200 team total) and $50 for two non-members ($225).
  10. Prepping for the FFF, and carpin in general, I was continually frustrated driving to a swim, going through the woods, etc. and getting my rods tangled; whether in the car or walking to the swim...........I don't like putting my hooks off my method feeders to the hook holders, or line guides on the rods-it damages the hook point, bends the shrink tubing and puts pressure on the line at the rod tip-sooooooooo, I tried a simple, simple thought-I looked for little nylon bags to cover the hooks, but after not finding any, I used zip-lock sandwich bags-simply placed my method feeder/hair rig in the bag and zip-lock....no tangles, no hooked on brush, etc.!!!......worked well hauling gear for the FFF!!

  14. ATC 2018 Rules: All anglers are required to have a VALID Texas fishing License ; you may purchase them by phone at (800)895-4248. Or online at: http://tpwd.texas.gov/business/licenses/online_sales/ Licenses are also sold at Wal-Mart, Academy, and other sporting goods stores. No pre-fishing in Ladybird Lake (Town Lake)from Sunday, March 11th through the start of the event. Anyone seen not complying with this will disqualify his or her team from the competition and the entry fee will not be refunded. All participants are allowed to plumb and research the lake; this includes the use of SMART CASTS. If you would like to fish prior to the tournament, we can recommend areas that will be permitted. Austin Lake has a campground (Emma Long) and it is a very similar type of venue (see rules). Another Venue is Decker Lake, known for Large Buffs. A representative of each team MUST be present at the peg draw, if one is not present that peg will be forfeited and the team will be issued whatever peg is left. You will draw 2 pegs and pick 1 within 15 seconds. The peg chosen is the peg you must fish. All of the city park rules must be observed. This will be a Big 6 event. This means that the team's 6 biggest fish will be the only ones that count towards the team's score. Teams DO NOT need to have 6 fish in order to qualify for the leader board or podium. Only Cyprinus Carpio count for Big 6 and Big Fish (no buffalo, grass carp, old tires, tennis shoes, dead anglers, lousy team members, etc.) A special award for the biggest Buffalo (any variety) will be presented. ALSO, a special award for the biggest Grass Carp will be presented. Each two-person team may fish anywhere within half the distance of opposing team pegs, ( this means the casting distance, you may not physically walk to and fish in the other teams peg) including pegs on the other side of the lake (you must, however, be in the same Zip Code & County). Each team MUST have 1 knot-less net that provides a safe way to land fish. Nylon knotted nets will not be allowed. Each team MUST have a scale that has been checked and calibrated at the Corn Boil for the event. We will calibrate with 5 pounds of water in a bucket, check your scales before you get there. Each team MUST have a well-padded unhooking mat and weigh sling. Each team MUST have a tape measure; all fish are to be measured and recorded on the score cards. We do this to assist Parks & Wildlife. A max of 6 rods in the water (having hooks on them) per team, at any one time. One hook per rod and no treble hooks or any multi-pronged hooks allowed. SPOD rods and Marker rods are permitted, but they must not have hooks on them. Opposing teams will weigh and record captures. Remote locations will have a Weigh Marshal to do this. Fish must be weighed, measured, and then verified by an opposing team member or a Marshal. Please return fish to the water promptly, after taking your photo(s) releases should also be verified by the opposing team member or Marshal. Only one fish per sack, if necessary. All Scorecards MUST be turned in. The scorecards have the opposing teams verification on them. These must be submitted at the end of each day, irrespective of whether you caught or not. If the scorecard is NOT turned in at the end of the days, angling captures WILL NOT COUNT!! Turn them in to HQ. Scorecards not turned in will result in DISQUALIFICATION Boats will not be allowed during the event; this includes kayaks, row boats, submarines, and bait boats. If a fish is hooked before the competition ends, there will be a 15-minute extension time limit allowed to land the fish. Any foul hooked fish will not count; all captures must be hooked within one inch of the mouth. CAG and non CAG members may attend, please see registration form for details and fees for each category.
