2012 Ccc Updates, Questions And Answers Thread

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

We are proud to announce that this years CCC will again be held in Chicago on the Chicago Lakefront (same as last year) September 28th and 29th with optional fishing on the 30th. So make sure to reserve those dates!!!

"The Chicago Carp Classic is truly a classic. 2012 marks the 19th year for this event. Great fishing and great socializing with the best of America's carp anglers."

We will have early bird registration available very soon at a special low rate of $40 for members.

There will be a fantastic Raffle again this year.

We are asking participants to donate any items that they can for a fundraiser auction.

I will update this thread when more details become available.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

Six days out, the forecast calls for a high of 72 with partly cloudy skies and mild winds from the NW. Haulfest, boys and girls!

Dan, Could you re-post the directions in from 90 for those of us with Truck Plates that can't legally drive on Lake Shore or any of the Drives?

The restrictions on chumming rule was scatched.

Match runs from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM on Saturday, September 29, 2012.

  • You must be a paid-up member of the Carp Anglers Group to participate. You may join at the venue by paying $25 for a one year family membership.
  • The entry fee for the Classic is $50 ($40 before September 1, 2012).
  • Pegs will be assigned to all registered anglers by random drawing. If you wish to fish with another angler, the name must be submitted together before the drawing.
  • Pegs may not be traded or substituted but if not all pegs are filled you may purchase a vacant peg for $50. If you do so, you must abandon your original peg, which then may be resold by the registration manager.
  • You may setup your gear and plumb your swim as soon as it is assigned to you but fishing and baiting must not start until 8:00 a.m. All these activities must be done within 10’ from the number marking your peg.
  • Fishing stops at 4:00 p.m. Any fish hooked and being played at that time may be landed and counted.
  • Cyprinus carpio only. No goldfish, Crucians, hybrids, bighead, grass carp or anything else.
  • You have the ultimate responsibility for landing, accurately weighing and recording your fish. The stewards will have nets, weigh slings and scales and will do everything possible to help. When you catch a fish, record its weight on your score card, have the steward witness the weight and ensure that the steward transmits the correct information to the registration desk. At the end of fishing, compare your score card with the board at the registration desk and be sure that all your fish have been accurately recorded. Also ensure that the total weight of your four largest fish and the total weight of all your fish have been accurately determined.

The North American Champion trophy will be awarded to the angler with the four fish with the greatest total weight.

Additional trophies will be given to each section winner. In case of ties, the weights of your other fish will be considered.

The Chicago Carp King Jeweled Belt Buckle will be awarded to the angler catching the single heaviest carp.

The Westside Bait & Tackle prize will be awarded to the angler landing the first fish.

The Professor Lucifer Gorgonzola Butts Award for Creative Carp Gear will be given to the angler with the most creative yet functional, DIY carp gear. The stewards and the judges will make this admittedly subjective decision.

You are responsible for your own property and safety. Members and officers of CAG are not responsible for loss or damage to property and equipment. Please remember there will be spectators and children.

Anglers must adhere to the State of Illinois Fishing Code. You may use no more than 2 rods with no more than 1 hook per line. You must have a valid Illinois Fishing License.

All decisions by judges’ panel are final. The Judges Panel Include: Paul Pezalla, Dan Ramir, Andy Sprinkle

All Appeals must be filed immediately following the incident and must be communicated in person to the Judges Panel.

As a contribution to CAG, I'll be donating a once-used 9'6" St. Croix Avid Carp Rod. The rod retails new for $250. Andy and Paul can decide if it will be part of an auction, a raffle, or a prize. These are rods with great strength and full-rod action with portability and utility for the stealth carp angler, or it's a wonderful all-around rod for the multi-species fisherman.--Frank
