In caught a 7.5 lb'er at Barbour Ponds also in the early 90's. Got it on a yellow spinner bait.

On a side note my biggest Walleye was 11lb @ Cherry Creek

I caught an 8 pounder twice out of a private pond in my parents' neighborhood. The first time it was on a foxee jig, the second on a slug-go. Those times were in the early to mid nineties as well.

The bass ponds on Ft. Carson I'm told have produced 8-10lbers but I know one was drained due to drought I'm not sure about the others.

I guess they use to be private and rarley fished. DOW has said there are some really nice Bass (8#) 2 ponds will be bait allowed while the back pond will be lures only and catch and release only. wont open until mid summer....

Largemouth: almost 6 lbs. (juniata, connected lakes, and jerry creek)
Smallmouth: almost 5 lbs. (yampa river.)
I broke off about a 10 lb bass last year at connected lakes on a popper, hooked him near the bank and he broke my 8 lb test before I could loosen the drag.
