Fair enough. Just trying to settle into this. I have never joined a forum, so there's a small learning curve. Thanks for the advice.

You'll be OK...if you ever want to head up to 11-Mile or Rampart with me, let me know...I try to get out every other weekend, not too piss off the wife to much; otherwise, I'd be out every weekend!

It's somewhat similar to asking for GPS coordinates.

If someone would've told you big fish were in Monument and this is how you catch them.... Monument would look like this



Keep good spots in private messaging, blur out the backgrounds of your pictures that you post and your honey holes won't be devastated by online lurkers.

haha funny thing is that monument does look like that from time to time (i.e. memorial day weekend). Good points though. Should have thought a little more about what I was asking.

I appreciate the offer! Maybe we can do that sometime.

No problem TBW - as others have said people goof around and slam each other pretty regularly; it's usually fun but it can be annoying at times so you have to have thicker skin here... Have a good time though there are a lot of good folks here and if you PM them you are likely to receive more specific help/offers to fish etc...
