Last spring I kept running into huge schools of small walleye and perch at Pueblo mixed together. I have a couple of mud areas that were loaded with 8-10 perch. I think the high water has really helped them out and there are bluegills now everywhere. I think Pueblo could be a really good perch fishery?

I wouldn't doubt it Neal. i imagine no one really targets them from the boat and it stays soft water mostly so there probably is some big ones in there

I heard that there were a bunch of noisy ass locals up there on the ice. Drinking and blaring music and such, spooking the fish. SMH.

I have caught some bigger females slabbing spoons and Lindy rigging. When the water is up in the spring you can go up shallow area's and find open mud and they are there eating worms and juvenile crawfish.

I didn't notice a thing (well, maybe a few crash landings-LMAO!)

I have uncoordinated friends. But at least they weren't snuggling each other!
