Nick Pacelli with a 21 lb., 2 oz.
common landed in June.
For the last three months, our state carp fishing club, the RI Carp Anglers Group, has been running a Big 3 tournament.  Those members who participated entered their biggest carp for each of three months.  The event ran for the months of April, May and June. The total poundage was their score. The fish were weighed on accurate scales, and in some cases photographed, and then released. The prizes for the top three scorers were engraved medals provided by the national Carp Anglers Group.
The event proved to be very  popular with our members.  And man, did they land some impressive fish, including a 30 lb., 8 oz. brute landed by Kev Wasliewski in May.  This proved to be the biggest common carp entered.   The biggest mirror carp entered went to Jack Sprengle for a 24 lb., 9 oz. mirror landed back in April.

The top three winners are listed below along with their catches and total scores:
1st place- Kev Wasliewski- 27 lbs., 30 lbs., 8 oz,, 24lbs.   (total- 81 lbs., 8 oz.)
2nd place- Nick Pacelli- 18lbs., 8 oz., 26 lbs., 4 oz., 21 lbs., 2 oz.  (total- 65 lbs., 14 oz.)
3rd place- Todd Richer- 21 lbs., 5 oz., 21 lbs., 8 oz., 21 lbs., 13 oz. (total- 64 lbs., 10 oz.)

I want to personally congratulate all the winners as well as all of those who entered fish in our contest.  We have one heck of a bunch of good carp fishermen in our group!
