In Alberta and Saskatchewan we are hearing of snow, meanwhile in Quebec some are having near fifty fish sessions in temperatures nearly ten degrees above seasonal. If this isn’t telling of our reach across this vast country, what is? Winter is soon to be upon all of us however, and that cabin fever and nagging need to do any and all things fishing to keep one’s sanity will once again return. As we near the end of the season, let’s talk about how incredible these past six plus months have been for our motley Canadian crew:

The 2022 SSF series has come to a conclusion with some absolutely incredible results for our Fall installment.

In our Solo event Ryan Ginter put out some OUTRAGEOUS weights with his top three fish weighing 40, 36 and 35 lbs for a total of 111 lbs! Congrats sir on another fantastic outcome! Adam Battersby and Nick Tietjen took second and third place with weights of 92.5 and 85.5 lbs respectively. With forty participants signing up for this past solo event we are once again pleased to see our members enjoying some friendly competition.

In our Teams event, we saw thirty teams compete and boy what a nail bitter right down to the finish! Congrats to Team Corn Walrus (Brendon Patteson, Dan Patteson and Galen Yerex) for taking the gold in this event. Following up in second was Poseiden’s Witness (Ilya Papkov, Vadym Hordov and Daria Voitovych) and Bangers and Mash (John Pundyk, James Capitain and Ben Radvanyi) taking third with only 4lb separating first and third. Unreal!

The 2022 Challenge Series started with 32 anglers battling it out for the crown and after five months and five rounds our winner is Julien Tremblay! After battling it out through all of the rounds to make it to the finals, Julien suffered a bad injury to his hand. By the grace of his competition in the form of a fellow Quebec native Alex Roy, Julien was given time to recover and once rested and ready the two took on a swim side by side to decide who would be crowned the victor. A true battle between two gentlemen ensued and Julien came out on top with some respectful fish to show for it! Koodos to a true showing of sportsmanship by Alex! Just goes to show that you NEVER know what might go down in these events!.

The 1st CCS Social by consensus of all of those present was a resounding success. Many of those who attended had the opportunity to meet anglers whom they have only ever spoken to or heard of via our platform or other social media. A BBQ, Tackle Swap and Sell, Coffee, great chats and laughs and of course a few fish thrown in the mix made for some memorable moments and newly kindled friendships. A big thanks to Nathan and Wayne for putting it all together.

With that being said, perhaps you are interested in signing up and participating in next year’s events. Be sure to stay up to date with our announcements, it is also never too early to start scouting and planning those campaigns.

Our friends at Pallatrax are hosting a giveaway for CCS members! All you need to do is head over to our “Competitions” heading in our Members tab and simply enter for your chance to win one of two prize packs that include:
– 3 Stonez lead free weights
– 5 packs of Gripz hooks (varying patterns)

Did you know that we now have over 100 articles written by our members? Everything from rig talks to philosophy can be found in our archives. With the colder months ahead and likely the end of the season for many, now is a great time to catch up on any and all you have missed.

Another fishing season is drawing to a close across much of this beautiful country, and yet those brave enough to face the elements could still pluck a golden treasure from the now darkening waters. Best of luck to those of you competing in the final SSF of 2022. Whether fishing solo, or with a trio, the SSF is a fantastic bit of fun. If you haven’t joined one previously, consider signing up for our Spring SSF next May!

The Challenge series has come down to our last two competitors. A battle of Quebec which has unfortunately seen a brief delay. However, some good sportsmanship has been shown by Alex Roy as his friend, and opponent, Julien Tremblay has suffered an injury to his hand and for the meantime must rest it up. More details will come as this event gets underway once again!

In other news, there is little that can be said about the CCS Social that hasn’t already been! A fantastic event that saw over 20 anglers from all over Ontario and Quebec, some of which meeting for the first time. With a tackle swap, a BBQ (cheers Simon and Kevin), free beer (thanks Tyler!) As well as giveaways (thank you sponsors and donors), banter, serenades (from the likes of James and Simon) and espresso (courtesy of Kevin). The fish also made an appearance for a number of participating anglers and some even earned the title Chub Master (Will). Thanks to Wayne and Nathan for organizing this incredibly successful event and to all of those that attended. A get together to remember!

Also be sure to check out our latest Podcast featuring Julian Cundiff and Paul Ferritto’s latest article on the Confirmation Bias… it’s a bloody good one!

The CCS Social is only two weeks away and it is sure to be an amazing event. For those attending, if you haven’t already joined the CCS Social Group, do so for necessary information and updates. The date is fast approaching!

In addition to this, our final SSF event of the year is to fall that same weekend! If you are looking for that kick in the pants for one last mega campaign, this is your chance to do so and compete against some other like-minded anglers for some swag and shiny things, sign up now!

The CCS Challenge Series is down to its final match up between Alex Roy and Julien Tremblay for the win! Beating out some tough competition, these anglers have certainly earned their way to this last stretch of the event, and there is sure to be some fireworks in Quebec! Best of luck gentlemen!

Those mornings are getting cooler, Fall is upon us! Those fish will be hard on the feed soon putting on those winter feed bags, be sure to check your kit and stock up at Carp Kit and Monster Carp.

Tight Lines!
