Well I've finally broke the 100th post barrier, so I thought I'd put up a few pics to entertain everyone -enjoy! I look forward to the next 100 ;D


This bass came from a pond that was 30s from my house in Ft. Collins. I could put a pizza in the oven and go catch a few bass before it was done.


pretty little greenback


had to throw in a Redfeather brown


my wife - catching bigger fish than me (again)

100th Post

I grew up in Oregon, and I really miss the fishing out there!  I'm sure that the fishing here in Colorado is better than a lot of other places, but it doesn't even remotely compare to what I grew up with.  I could catch 6lb trout, 10 lb steelhead, 10 lb bass, and 40 lb salmon, all less than 30 minutes from my house, and with not a single person in site! Here's some pics from out west -enjoy.

jk any place that is coastal has better fishing than inland places in general. We have decent fishing in CO however. Ya just have to know the secret spots.

Basshunter --- you hit 100 post awhile ago !  Alot of your posts a worth about 10  ;D  Nice Pics. I don't think I'll catch anything like that out of Estes, but I have to go fish NOW after seeing those. Thanks.

P.S. love the background of the nice bow photo. If you get the job (20 mins away), make sure there's room in your yard for a couple of tents !

hahaha, my wife's not for sale - sorry for the confusion.

I just read through my text again and it kinda sounds like I'm puttin' down CO...that's not what I meant at all! I actually left Oregon cuz I was tired of catching the same old thing every year. Since I've been in Colorado I've caught wipers, tiger muskies, pike, grayling, greenback/colorado river/rio grande cutthroats, lake trout, big browns, walleye, saugeye, channel cats, largemouth/smallmouth bass, perch, and kokanee. Most of which don't even exist in Oregon. It a great thing to have to decide what to fish for every day.


BND - I'm from S. Oregon, Medford area. Amen to fishing from a sled!!! Things are changing fast down there. If you listen carefully you can hear the sound of Californians slamming their U-haul doors shut and heading north :'(
