Looks like you lost a bunch of weight. What were you wearing a shirt for? I even shedded mine for a while on Saturday.

Kremmling... Where the men are men, the women are men and the sheep are damn scared!!

Dantonio's rocks, he likes getting my Halibut, haven't seen him in a while I'll have to take him some Tuna. I hope he taught you not to disrespect the garlic knots.

Funny how few of those over 23" lakers are in there.
It's typical for Co. Lake Trout lakes, very few make it to or past 20"s and it takes many years, then you have an 8 fish open limit at WF up to 30" so the few that do get picked off.
Green mtn is even worse, we caught 30 in a half a day last week between 14"-17", they all were in pitiful condition suspenders eating Plankton and cigar shaped. Very few make it past 18"s and no protection on the large ones.
At Granby we learned long ago to let everything over 20" go and set the tournament at under 19"s.
The eater size fish are in much better shape at Granby than most Lakes due to the Mysis Shrimp diet.
That fish on Dave's scale is 3 pds, I'm assuming thats the 23"er. At Granby 19"ers get over 3 lbs and average 2.5.

Yep, the Fork is a great fishery, it has everything and is a model lake.
The dpw can complain about it being a feed lot for Pike all they want but the fact is the predators do way more to improve the health of the lake than harm it. The lake was overrun with Suckers prior to stocking Pike that were put in to control them. They have done their job well as the Fork does not have a Sucker problem now.
Only the hatchery products are sick with diseases.

Yesterday it was 50 degrees, Granby had standing water on the whole lake from the snow melting.
Snowing again now.
