Took some newbies and my mom & dad to a few spots around Granby yesterday....fished from 3 until 6 and managed some nice ones in 60-80 fow. Was pretty cool because every consecutive fish was bigger than the next. Started with a 16, then an 18, then a 22, 24, two that measured 27, another at 28 1/2, and then a fat 33 that was 27 lbs to finish the day! Spectacular afternoon, but unfortunately most of the fish didn't make it because the newbs didn't handle the fish properly, and my mom insisted on keeping the big guy....oh well she's a good cook and I'm sure they'll be tasty! Tubes were the ticket, but the big guy was caught on an airplane jig.

Well - hopefully you educated the newbs on proper handling for the future? ???

Glad you had a good day, hopefully your mom enjoys them, We've been saving them for years and your group just wiped out about a hundred years of combined growth with those last 4 fish you killed.

BS, the lake is 23' down right now and that second picture shows full water and if you look at the treeline it is not lake Granby and I doubt it is even Colo. and a 33" fish is not 27lbs.

It's not easy to fool a bunch of wily fisherman, especially on today's particular date. So if you fell for this joke, even for a second, then all I can say is HAPPY APRIL FOOLS DAY!!! Hope nobody was offended....the pics are stock shots from Canada...tightlines ladies & gents
