Just wanted to give all the entrants a quick update on the pegging for this years event. All of the Austin Carp Angler crew have been working hard clearing swims in preparation for this years event. We have lost a few of the traditional swims due to construction and as of right now there are still three swims on our list that may or may not be available (depending on the city to finish working in the area). We have added two swims that have never before been used during the ATC (both are swims we have fished and caught from so there are definitely carp to be caught there) as well as bringing back a couple of swims that did produce reasonably well in previous ATC's. We are still working on a few more potential new swims that have never been used before and one that has but may not be fishable by a team of two without more hard work. I will say that all of the swims we have cleared and fished have produced numbers of carp so the lake is still pretty healthy even after the flooding at the end of October 2013. Once we get the pegs finalized we will release the peg map to Neil and Willem in case they want to post it here in advance of the event. Stay tuned for further updates as the date gets closer.
A quick reminder to all that Sunday 8th December 2013 is the final event of the WCC of Austin monthly series. We will meet and draw for partners and swims at the I35 bridge. Draw time is 6:30 am, fishing from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm. Each angler will draw a chip from the bag. Chips are paired together and the nuymber of the chip will determine the order of the walk off. Pairs must decide on their pegged area together and decide where in the peg each would like to fish. Rock, Paper, Scissors in case of any issues at the swim. In the case of an odd number of anglers attending there will be one solo number in the bag (it will be the last number), the angler drawing this number will have to ensure that they fish near to one of the pairs to ensure that his or her fish are weighed/witnessed by another angler. There are plenty of locations that three anglers can be close enough that this can happen. Anywhere on Ladybird Lake is open to fish but be aware that lots of swims are currently overgrown so you may need to beat down some of the growth to fish some spots. The lake is currently fishing very well with multiple fish being caught on a daily basis. Come and join us and enjoy some end of year sport on Ladybird Lake.
