36(almost) common from Allegan...


Recommended Posts

Those who are looooong term veterans here will recall I once declared I would never bother taking a pic of a fish..but today, I just happend to have my camera with me when I took a decent fish. 35. 8 on my cheap Berkley digital scale, from the Allegan tailwaters. Took a poped up chick pea soaked in salmon oil, I had baited the area up with corn for maybe 20 minutes previously.

Lots of small fish as usual today, total take was about 20 fish..this being the best by a large margin.

Not the best pic, but I had some asian guy take the pic, and it' was a strugle to just tell him how to work the camera!

whoa... what a nice lump... it looks massive to me...  :D

what's that fish in the left hand corner doing?

Playing dead, unfortunatly. The spawn always takes some fish, who don't make it through the rigors of it..likely a half dozen dead small males floating around the backwash.

Nighwing,

Traitor

You know if you net the dead ones you can count them in your days catch.

Phone

A traitor because the Allegan tourney is a kill tourney?

Nightwing - did you win the largest fish prize this weekend? I happen to know that the winner admitted to catching the largest fish below the dam, which was off limits to tournamnet anglers/bowfisherpeople.

No traitor in my book. Fish looks huge, live, and unshot...

  Again, Paul, atta boy!

I'm no carphugger, so I don't care if was live or dead, shot or whatever. My concern is violating tournament rules by fishing outside of the designated area.

While I was not present at this year's Allegan tournament, I happen to know this year's third place finisher in the largest fish category.

Mind you, no grudge is held by me or the third place angler, just curious to see if Nightwing's fish was the winner. If so, rest assured, the fish was killed.

Nightwing - that fish is a serious lump. And now I think on it, I think that is the first picture of your smiling face I've ever seen you post. Anyway, congrats and take a camera along more often - love to see some action shots of you with a monster on your fly rod.

Interesting KingKool.

You have just pretty much accused Paul of cheating and taking money for it. I know him from quite a few years of forum posting (way before CAG was in existance) and I seriously doubt he was fishing that tourney but I am dead certain that if he had been, he would have fished it honestly.

My apologies then. But I don't know the guy from Adam.

The winning fish was reported to have been approx. that size, and the winner admitted to have caught it below the dam. Along with the mighty "Phone" calling him a traitor and stating that dead fish could be netted and turned in, I assumed that he was the person who caught the winning fish. (Phone - apparently you are aware of this tournament???) Seems very coincidental to me.

But I could be wrong. Again, my apologies to you Nightwing if I sounded accusatory in my earlier post.

FYI - no money awarded in this tournament - small prizes and low $ amount gift cards. So not much reason to bend the rules. Except for braggin rights.

Huh?

I have never even heard of an Allegan tournament of any kind..kill or otherwise...and I've fished Allegen for many years.

Rest assured, this was caught below the dam, not entered in any contest(not a big contest person), and live released about 5 seconds after that photo was taken.

There were perhaps 10 other people fishing, and I did not see a single carp kept...so if it was a tournement, and "kill only"...it was not very popular.
