Went to another pond on Ft. Carson that I never fished before. (the woman had to work and the kid had a friend over so if I'm not sleeping we were goin fishing) Thought there might be some bass under the dock so I casted a jig under there and boy was I right 500 3-5 inch bass come hauling up after it. Think the first one I caught was 3 inches (HUGE). The kids started chasing them around catching them left and right. (his friend never fished before so it was fun for a while) I moved down to the windy side of the lake and caught a couple 6 inch rainbows on a floating jighead tipped with a worm. The kids wanted to catch bigger fish so we went to Townsend and my first cast caught about an 11 inch rainbow. Next cast caught about a 10 inch bass, the kids threw their lines out for about a minute or 2 then went to throw rocks on the other side of the lake where there was no one fishing. I ended up catching 5 more bass all between 10-12 inches.

Cody's first bass of the day.


Cody's friends biggest.


My biggest rainbow (the only 1 I caught at townsend)


And the first bass from Townsend.

Haha when I saw the picture I said the same thing, most people who see his pole say something about it.

Re: Ft. Carson Ponds

ePic-Those lakes are gonna be excellent for bass in 2-3 yrs IF people will just return them to the water. Both those lakes have lots of weed growth, good forage-everything you need to grow nice largemouth. I can't wait. Haynes has big bass right now but those fish are very smart and this time of year its 1-3 bass in an afternoon of fishing. Come fall they will put on the feedbag and get easier to catch-many of these fish were brought up from Teller Res when it went dry about 3 yrs ago.

Its a beautiful thing. ;D
