Here is a collage of catches so far this year. Met some cool people, reconnected with a great fishing bud and connected with another. So far, its been a good ride.
All fish were caught in Colorado lakes and ponds. Cold water jerkbait fishing for the most part. Some on jigs and blades.
For Boss4Hoss: Yes, they are ALL FAKE--and photoshopped because there are NO big WALLEYE in CO.
Some backgrounds have been modified to protect the innocent and/or to needle the not so innocent.



First eye of the year :)



14", 15" and 18" Saugeye.



Momma Saugeye. Just shy of 5 lbs.



11 Lb eye! I was like a little kid. I thought she was hooked under her chin and I thought she was about to get off. Shaking the whole time after I saw that huge white belly roll. Thank god for the Cambodian Bandito--Tony. Bought the boga the next day. I clearly need to work on my posing. The photo doesn't do justice to how incredibly fat she was.

It was crazy. She sat there after I released her for a good 4 minutes. Just idling. Tony got video and we snapped a ton of pics: Not sharing those.

Funny. It felt like somebody was watching me the whole time I fished that night...


SUPER FAT 23" er.

9 Lb 'er!!!!


Just a cool pic of an "average" 21" er. Very brown.



11.5 Lb er Last Night!!!!! 29" by 19" Girth. I like big EYES and I cannot lie...

All in all, a pretty good spring. Looking forward to more. Kinda addicted to big eyes now :)

Karma plays a huge part in this. These fish are due in no small part to tips and aide from some great people including you. Andrew and Tony's advice help me nail down the retrieve. Took that retrieve to the ponds, modified it, perfected it and used it to catch two 11 lb eyes. As we all say all the time, methods will pay greater dividends than locations. Learn, tweak, hunt catch. Lather rinse repeat.

Saturday at work we poured and tested a bridge deck at 5 am. I left my house at 3 am. Took a little nap after the pour then hit the lake and fished for another 6 hours. Why? I KNEW they were gonna be on the bite. Crazy? You betcha. I was wiped out yesterday but it was worth it. What pour?

Still, the best thing has been hangin with Z and Tony. Funny fuckers and great fisherman.

Slayer: Its ok that your old eyes cant handle the dark anymore. It happens. Too bad Geritol doesn't make night vision goggles for AARP members... ;)

I had already heard about your monster eyes, but hadn't seen the pics yet (well, maybe one). Awesome fish, and on $5-$6 lures! Attaboy! Those expensive lures have their time and place but I'm perfectly happy when I can get away with cheap ones. Nice artwork too!

Thanks hoss! Funny that you said that about the lures. Pretty sure I'm going to buy some of those Duo's: Good colors and its something different. Runs about the same as big x-raps pricewise.
