I would like everyone to jump on this and show our support for carp angling. The GoFISH'n guys have more than 165,000 followers on Facebook so this is an awesome chance to promote carp angling and CAG. Also, the cooperation with USCP has been more than excellent and a big thank you to Dave, Tony and everyone else involved on their side.

Also Ned and Brian from GoFISH'n have been extremely supportive. This is probably the most mainstream any carp event has ever gone in the US. Help us out promoting the sport and CAG and as Neil said correctly, please do ignore the negative comments. There's no point to get into a slug-fest right now.

Go CARP WEEK!

It's a fantastic opportunity to raise the profile of carp fishing in this country and to show (politely) the knee-jerkers that carp represent outstanding sports fishing opportunities for all. Also, there are 160,000 followers of GoFISHn's facebook page. If only one percent decided to join CAG it would represent the single biggest boost in paid memberships ever! Post pics, like others posts, and show your support for Carp Week.

You can find GoFISHn's facebook page at: http://www.facebook.com/gofishn

THIS IS CARP WEEK,,,,,,, :D

I believe Senor Possum makes a good point. Name calling with a group that has a different point of view about our fishing resources can only alienate other anglers who share similar sentiments but do not necessarily buy into their style of fishing.

Hearts and minds are won on the bank with the casual observers who witness a spirited fight from the lowly carp. I have had other anglers plus families enjoying the river and lakes here in Texas come over to see the carp on the bank and all are impressed. I try to be the diplomat and answer their questions about my methods and tackle. The looks on the children tells me that they will remember.

Where I can improve my presentation skills is by how I release the carp back into the water. I throw all my fish back, after they are caught but I guess I will need to show a little more respect to the carp and cradle them, then let them swim off.

FYI.. Mr Stern, I am not unarmed, I own a Taurus Public Defender with 410 shells in the first 3 chambers backed by 45 hollow points in the next 2 for the purpose of snake killing don’t ya know. Its right and proper down here in the Lone Star state.

I don't think Neil's point was to attack any one with name calling. On the contrary, he was merely pointing out what usually happens on any public web site when carp become the topic of discussion. He was asking for us to show up in numbers to voice our support of the fish that we all love.

Guys.....Guys...... y'all read it wrong........let me try this again......

any forum, discussion, blog, will have people pro and people con, to whatever it is that is being discussed,,,,,

Carp have long been the subject of controversy,,,,,Trash fish, Sewer Trout, destructive critters that need to used for fertilizer,,,,,,my point was,,,DO NOT get into heated discussions with these people if you do get on line on the sites alluded to or on FACEBOOK,,,,,,,,don't start an argument, and don't attempt to finish one....just promote what it is that we do,,,,,,and let the readers make their own decisions,,,,,,that's all I intended to state,,,,,

sorry if it was taken the wrong way,,,,really I am,,,,,,

so??? now that I've clarified,,,,does that make it more better????? :)

No shots intended,,,,,,Sorry if there was a misunderstanding,,,,,,,,I hang my head in shame,,,,,BAD NEIL :o

This is a huge opportunity to raise the profile of carp angling in North America and reach an audience of more than 160,000 anglers. Go post positive comments, "like" posts and pictures, and support CAG.
