Match runs from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM on Saturday, September 27th.

• 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, $40 for a two year or $65 for a three year family membership.

• The entry fee for the Classic is $30.

• Pegs will be assigned to all registered anglers by random drawing. If you wish to fish with a group, the names of all members of the group 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 $30. 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 must not start until 8:00 a.m. All these activities must be done within 10 ft. from the number marking your peg.

• Chumming is allowed. Spods, PVA bags and stringers, catapults, spoons, method feeders and packbaits are all acceptable. Please bait intelligently, don't over do it and don't let your bait drift into your neighbor's swim.

• Fishing stops at 5:00 p.m. Any fish 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. Please use an unhooking mat - don't lay the fish on concrete. When you catch a fish, record its weight on your score card, have the witness (an opposing team) weight and initial the scorecard. At the end of fishing, be sure to return your scorecard at the CAG desk located in the parking lot immediatley following the event. Also ensure that the total weight of your four largest fish and the total weight of all your fish have been accurately determined.

Washington DC has plenty to keep the family entertained. Check out a small portion of the many family attractions here: Top 10 Things to Do in the Washington, DC/Capital Region

The venue is tidal water - deep water right in the margins - 8'-15' with some water up to 25'+ . The pegs will have a large guard rail that is about 4' to prevent people from falling over and getting swept down river. A bucket pod is a great way to fish this area or just attaching a buzz bar to the top rail by use of plastic ties. There aren't many stores that are close (walking distance) so be sure to pack a few drinks and snacks. Pizza and sodas will be served for a small fee on the day of the event. There is a variety of fish that swim these waters and including some big Blue Catfish this time of the year. They aren't part of the competition but fun to catch when they pick up your baits :)

Hope to see you all there!!
