I get so much info off this site, so im going to chip in and give my first fishing report! Had some time off, so i decided to spend it fishing Big Thompson Ponds. only 7 minutes from my house, so its easy enough.



Wednesday morning I arrived about 6am. Started fishing the first pond, walked around the back side, no luck. I did manage to lose 2 of my favorite lures.. made my way to the back pond around 7am. No hits, nothing till about 1pm. landed a 15" largemouth. stayed for another hour or so before heading home.



Thursday evening I arrived about 5pm. About 8pm I got a 16" largemouth in the exact same spot i got the one the day before. Again, on a gulp minow. Nothing special, but he was fun bringin in! (im still looking for my trophy bass) I headed over to the first pond to try catfishing. Tried cut bait & chicken livers, nothing...

Last night, i talked my girlfriend into going catfishing with me. Tried a couple new tricks. I was there from 11pm to 4am. Caught one baby, but he managed to snake off before i got him in for a picture.
I could barley tell he was on my line once i started bringing him in, but when he first hit, i coulda sworn it was a nice one..

I dont know whats going on with me and NOT catching cats.

Havent spent much time fly fishing, so I think ill be hitting Big Thompson River a bit east of I-25 tomorrow afternoon into the evening. I need a trout fix after seeing Roadkills Lilly Lake pictures!! Too bad gas is so stupid expensive.. need to stay close to the house. $65 to fill my car today!!!! OUCH!
