Today was TAKC, RI, or Take a Kid Carp Fishing Day here in RI. It is an event sponsored by the national Carp Anglers Group. State chapters all over the country are holding events this weekend. Our RI CAG group held our own event here in a small pond in Lincoln, RI. We had three kids, Austin, Ben and Peter show up to try their luck at carp fishing. At the end of the morning all three boys landed some good looking mirror carp. And, all three landed the biggest fish they had ever caught in freshwater. These fish were all in the 5-6 lb. range. They were all caught on chick peas fished on a hair rig.
By coming to the event and catching a carp, all three boys will be entered in a drawing for prizes that will be given out by the Carp Anglers Group. Congrats to all the boys on their catches and hopefully, this will be the first of many carp that will come their way!
