Hello,

Best thing to do to get tips about technique and species would be to use the search engine on this sight and look at past posts.

This link will give you all you need in the way of limits in respective water:

Lurkeradvice lmao

Tikee, glad to have you aboard. My suggestion would be to log on and actually post some stuff so people can see where you are coming from. A lot of us are uncomfortable with sharing our experiences on the wild west that is the internet (myself included) but are more willing to dish the goods in personal messages (PM's) to folks we are comfortable with.

Cheers man.

Shaun

Welcome to the site and thanks for your service. Up at the top it lists all or most of the fish in Colorado. Bass, Walleye and trout (lake trout, brown, Brooke, and rainbows). You can fly fish in a very nice setting in the mountains or chase Wiper (stripped bass+whitebass), walleye and large and small mouth, on the plains. Best bet is fishing close to home book, the Colorado Department of Parks and Wildlife or whatever the new name is, has all the regs and a lot of useful info. What saltwater fishing did you do?

Welcome to the site and thanks for your service. Just curious, what is your rate? I was a Sonar Technician Submarines on the USS Ohio (SSBN 726)

Look forward to hearing more from you and welcoming you to the metro area. Give us a little more information about what you want to do.

my rate is AD2(AW), 8 years in norfolk virginia, 1 year in afghanistan, 2 years in mayport fl. i fish big fish, some over 200 pounds like tarpin, stingrays and sharks, but mostly grouper, redfish, croaker, and anything really that you can catch surf fishing or off a jetti even pulled in a few crabs that just wouldnt let go lol. i just love to fish so i dont really care what i catch. i will definatly miss catching monster fish though. that stingray in my profile pic took 4 of us 3 hours to pull in.
