When you say Lake Mary, do you mean Mary's Lake (in Estes)? If so where is Mcall? I'm assuming the lakes were close, and if so I'd want to try Mcall.
When my buddies go fishing w/ me, we always bring 3 $1 bills. At the end of the day the person w/ the 1st of the day the biggest, and the most gets the $ for that catagory.
I don't know much about the place on 66. I know it's next the water treatment place. I've heard it's $1,500 to join w/ $500 as a yearly fee?
Oh, and if it is Lake Mary and it's somewhat close to Estes where is that ? :)
Thanks

McCall's is about 1 or 2 miles past the Longmont private lake. Its on your left if heading west, nice lake and some big bass and cats.

sorry marys lake... take hwy 7 out of estes and go to the mary lakke road you will see the signes ... it is very easy...ya and mcall is heading into liyons...not in estes i like mcalls i could see a lot of bass in that there water... i was even playing with one... i threw a spinner bait in and when i realed it in i would stop right infront of his face...the slowly jerk it in and i could see him fallowing... i did that several times until he got impatient...then i re cast and just realed it right by his face with out slowing it down... and he jumped right at it... i yanked and pulled him out of the water and then he flopped off... so i never got him all the way in :-[

also across mcall there is like this house with a pond and u can fed their fish... holy poop i have never seen such big trout in my life... they have like 20+ in trout in there ...and i am sure some are even way bigger then 20in.. obviously u cant fish the pond but just to see these fish we awesome

Jenedorn --- No Worries, and Thanks. Mcall sounds like it would be a great after work place.
Earlier you asked for advise on Bass. I just started, but I'm doing aright. When I'm not catching any, but I'll see them cruising through. I use a Creme Trout Worm. You can get them anywhere, they are sort-of Carolina rigged, but w/ 2 expossed hooks. Anyway, use a real light cast. Try to almost drop it in, about 2 feet in front of them. Most of the time they hit before it hits the bottom, even in 2 or 3 feet of water. Otherwise, find anything sticking out of the water and cast plastics (unweighted) or cranks at it until you get a strike. I've been retrieving the plastics slow, no slower! The cranks have been working at differant speeds. Experiment. I've been using Rappala DT Divers, and small Bombers.
Good Luck beating your husband!  ;)
