RI CAGers Score Big in Big 4 Tournament

Todd Richer....4th place
Three RI CAG members entered the national CAG Big 4 Tournament and all came away winners, a phenomenal feat for RI carp fishermen.  This tournament was open to all CAG members.  The idea was to go out and fish from October to mid November and log in your four biggest carp.  The poundage total would be your points.
Tom Perron....10th place
Note that some of the best carp fishermen from all over the country were involved in this tournament so the competition was stiff. At stake were prizes (gift certificates) for the top ten finishers. Here's how we did;
Todd Richer came in fourth place overall with 113 lbs., 4 oz.  In that haul of fish, Todd had a PB (Personal Best) 33 lb., 8 oz common, a stunning fish.  If you remember, it was Todd who had the biggest mirror at 30 lbs. in the Spring CAG Big 4. Todd is quickly becoming one of New England's top big carp hunters.
Dave Pickering....7th place
I came in seventh place with 83 lbs., 2 oz.  All my fish were in the low twenties.  This goes along with my 5th place finish in the Spring CAG Big 4.
Tom Perron came in tenth place.  Tom is a first year CAG member and part of our up and coming group of young carp fishermen in this state. Tom's total was 66 lbs., 2 oz. and he had a very impressive mirror of 22 lbs., 3 oz. in the mix.  You might remember that Tom and his partner came in second place in the recent Merrimack River Regional Tournament.
Make no mistake about it...we have some of the best carp fishermen in New England here in our RI CAG group.  And, we are now raising some eyebrows on the national level.
