Front range - Fast action Trout and Bluegills - with Jim and JWurgaft (w/ pics)

Jevan, Jim and myself hit the ice yesturday.

Due to various reasons, we couldn't go far, plus we all wanted to be sure to catch.. So we headed to a pond I know, hoping for a fast action day . . .


a hint, well...


The details . . .

We caught 67 fish between the 3 of us. Our search for fast bite wasn't in vrain. Mostly stocker rainbows, but a lot were colored nice. Plus quite a few Bluegills. There was no "majic jig" ;) As a matter of fact, everything worked (Jevan proved that by catching on almost everything he had in his ice arsenal. I caught on Ratsos, shrimpos, RatFinkys, and a Northalnd mimic minnow. We were lucky to have 3 Bald Eagles flying over occasionally too.

Pictures . . .

Dunno what you're thinkin bro.......mine don't even hold a candle to James' reports and then if you figure in the camera work it is a complete shut-out. I've been a big James fan for a grip now. BTW.....still have that 'wings jersey here with your name on it bro. One of these days soon we will have to hit some ice together so I can get it to ya.

Is that a joke?! Man, did you know I had to fetch a dog for three hours to get those jigs! The way you and Jim were catching I thought you guys did the same thing ;)..... O0




My dogs would really be jealous..... :D

JK Good fishin' with you guys I'm going to add a couple pics later.Tight lines.

Ron it really wasn't that cold...Didn't even wear gloves most of the day. I went back the next day with Jenn {Tuesday} And it was a lot colder, -10 drop from here in Estes.. :-\ But the action was still on fire....












Anyway thanks for the replies everyone. I'll add a couple pics sometime soon. First time using my new camera.

soulsearcher, I'd take the Monster fish (Walleye, Bass, Trout, etc..) you catch anyday! Let's definatly hit some water!



Jevan . . . :-[ I didn't want to say anything, but I did get some of those "majic jigs" I only got two (jigs) though, and figured Jim and I needed em more than you.. Unfortunatly I lost mine packing up. After reading you had one too.. I haven't gone back.. What would be the use. Trying to catch at that tough place w/out ba's jig (If anyone has any suggestions...? :D )



Thanks Mark (and for all you do for this site!)


Ron,

:D Nice! Water's opening up, hope you have your gear ready!


Thank you everyone, I appreciate it
