I'm getting a Hall pass next Sunday when the Broncos have a bye week. Been on leave and at home with our first baby the past couple weeks but have been dying to get out and fish.

Never fished for lakers in open water and heard the fall might be a good time to do it. GM? Jefferson? Granby? Throw the usual... Metal... Tubes... Tipped?

Or go for pike down in south park?

Any suggestions or tips would be awesome!

I suppose it depends on whether you want to catch pike or lakers?

Down for either slayer! Both bites should be decent by then I think. I'm leaning towards lakers but am addicted to topwater and to get a pike on topwater blow my mind!

Congrats on the kiddo! Life changing to say the least
Little early for post spawn lakers... Maybe not at the highest lakes if it gets cold cold.
Pike and topwater when the water is under 55 or so will be kinda rough.
Would pick pike myself...
Or you could do Taylor and fish for both!

Thanks Boon! It's been pretty awesome!

Wish we could do Taylor but it's gonna be a day trip so most like South Park. I'll throw swimbaits, jerkbaits, whatever baits...just wanted one on top!

I third the fork. I'll be out there in a canoe this weekend.

I got my 15lb pike at WF on the north side fishing the coves towards the dam in November on a kasty.

I weighed a 17lber for a kid by the inlet near the trees on the west side. He was using a buzzbait in November-
