Wild Carp Fall Qualifier 2010

September 24-25, 2010
7550 State Fair Blvd, Baldwinsville, NY

Welcome to the 1st annual Wild Carp Fall Qualifier!

There will be a peg draw at the registration desk Friday morning at 6:45 AM. Anglers will set up and pre bait from the same peg location Friday and Saturday, 7:00 - 7:30 AM. Competitive fishing will be 7:30 AM – 7:30 PM both days.

Thank you to Duke and Karen Strache not only for allowing this tournament to take place on their private property, but also the incredible amount of work they put into site maintenance such as mowing and de-weeding peg locations for your benefit.

Please be respectful of the Strache property; no fires and leave your peg location as clean as it was when you arrived. Do not enter the property by the Strache household. Instead, continue along State Fair Blvd (Rte 48) and you will see a green and blue Carp tournament sign along the road next to the dirt road entrance. Follow the path to the railroad track, LOOK BOTH WAYS, then continue straight and the trail will lead you to the registration table.

This is a Big 4 tournament with payouts of cash prizes and vouchers for the Wild Carp Classic (May 14-17, 2011).

  • Two rods per angler, one hook per rod

The 2010 Wild Carp Fall Qualifier was a great success! 

There was 8 teams of highly-skilled anglers in attendance and competition was fierce with less than 10 pounds separating places 1-5 in the Big 4 competition.

In fact, of the 32 'Big 4' fish amongst all teams, 20 of them were 20+ lbs. There were plenty of teams releasing 20+ lb Carp that did not improve their score during day 2. What an amazing competition—we can't wait to do it again next Fall.

Thank you very much to all the competitors that came to Baldwinsville for this great event.  Each of you showed a high acumen for catching large Carp. 

Thank you to Duke and Karen Strache for allowing use of their private property for this event. The two teamed with John Virginia to do a tremendous amount of site preparation prior to the event, including mowing and de-weeding pegs locations.

Thank you also to team sponsors World Classic Baits (Ed Wagner and Val Grimley) and Yardsmith of Syracuse, NY (Chris West and Mike Haynes).
