Nice job. Glad to see some open water fishing reports coming in. These were caught on open water right? Were you in a boat or from shore???

Hey Slayer! I was wondering if you have ever tried slip bobbers? I fished the stilling basin a couple of times in the past at Pueblo and also lost a ton of jigs :mad:

I have always wondered if a properly set slip bobber and 3" Shiner might "slay" them?

I tried 'em last year a little but the bottom has a large hump and the depth changes rapidly so you end up getting snagged anyway.
