Re: I'm fishing at Jefferson tomorrow and...
Well, my bro colonative said I have the job of posting Jefferson clean-up. Sadly to say, only three forum members and two non-forum members showed up to clean the whole lake. On the brighter note, someone must have gotten there before us because there was no where near the trash as last time. We started fishing at approximately 6:00 a.m. (still very dark out), very, very cold. colonative couldn't wait for me and the bf to get rigged up and he threw in a spin bobber with a night crawler...he got a nice bow within 30 seconds. It was on from there on. We were all using bobbers and bobbers with nightcrawlers. We were bringing them in right and left, some nice phatties. Kept 4 phatties and had to keep two 8ers that wouldn't have made it. Then colonative, using a kastmaster, brought in a very nice mac. Since my bro has so many fishies in his freezer, he let us keep all fish he caught, including the mac - I'm preparing that for dinner tonight. We caught and released more than we kept. But wait! Its not over. After the trash clean-up we decided to go elsewhere as it was soooo crowded. Headed over to Antero - first time for all of us. Unfortunately bro and I got pewed. My bf hooked a HUGE bow and as I was racing with the net to help, the bow snapped off - my bf is still cussing. I did see it though, head the size of a softball, must have been approximately 26". That was it for us. Fished a little longer and drove home all thinking what a great day it had been.
Sorry for the long wind. Combined two stories into one. I will try to post a pic of the "paper towel mortuary" later. Actually there is only one pic and I haven't posted a pic yet so if someone wants to take it on - I can email pic.
What goes around, comes around...sometimes it just takes awhile.
