OK, time to fess up. I told you (Terry) that I caught this big pike at the Gap on a Huddleston, but I caught it on a Dynamo. I was mad at you cause of the way you guys pushed that couple in the canoe out of their spot when she had just caught/lost a big trout there. Then Brian gave Fred a free one, but mine was free too because Steve at GT's gave it to me to try. Ordered six more today. ;D But I have to give credit where credit is due on the baits, all 4 pike over 30" were caught on the Dynamo. This was the big guy, 38", 17 #. The blood came from extracting both treble hooks from his gullet as he swallowed almost the whole swimbait.
Not going to affect a lot of fishing areas, Clear Creek Reservoir is the only one I can think of. Camping should be better.
New member here. I started fishing when I moved out to CO just over 4 years ago. I've done a lot of stream and river fishing (both spinning and fly-casting), probably because that is what CO is best known for? But recently I decided I wanted to become a more competent lake fisherman, and catch...
Anyone have any reports on fishing at Vallecito Lake? Northern's, bows, browns? Are there other fish here? Taking my 12 year old son there next week and we'd love to get into a snake or two but also want to catch some trout. Any guidance on tackle/lures/bait would be much appreciated.
