Finally, Fish Landed at a Fish-in!

Up until today we had been on a poor streak at fish-ins.  At the two previous ones, we landed nothing, so today's event , held on the Blackstone River was an exciting change.  We didn't kill the fish, but we did manage to bank 6 fish in some real lousy weather.  We had 8 hardy fishermen attend this get together.  These included 6 of our RI CAG members (Todd, Daphne, Bob, Armando, Nick and myself along with 2 MA CAG members (Jerome and Iain).  Five of the fish were mirror carp in the 8-15 lb. range and there was one common landed.  We also missed a couple of runners and lost a couple of fish that we had on. The fish were landed on all different types of baits that ranged from chick peas to boilies.  The RI CAG holds at least two fish-ins a year along with several informal get togethers.  Fish-ins are great times to reconnect with friends and fish and talk fishing all day long while sometimes landing a fish or two.

  1. Hi Dave!
    It was very nice to meet you and the rest of the team at the fish inn.

    You must do more fish inns during the year!
