I hit Estes from about 3:15 - 4:15 (After work & before a hockey game). I caught two 14inch rainbows off the point. I was using powerbait. I had heard the fishing was pretty good there the past couple of days.
Hit Estes again after work today (March 5th). Again using power-bait. I tried salmon eggs also, but they weren't having it. We were meeting 2 of our buddies, but they decided to get a head start. They both did really well (5+ fish each). I got four, all pretty nice sized rainbows, (12-15 inches). We got most of them between 4:30-6:00. I told the 3 guys I was fishing w/ about this site, and they're going to register.
I fish this lake every month of the year. There is a little ice by the damb, but we're not allowed to fish near it anyway. When I fished it last there was also some ice at fisherman's nook (golf coarse parking lot), but not much. New years eve I got 7 (including a nice brown), after work, and before dark (about 4:30 then). It's a lot nicer of a lake than most people think. I catch a brown for about every 12 rainbows, and last spring I caught a 21'' rainbow. I know a guy that has a 28.5" mounted that he got out of there. Funny thing is he caught it w/ a nightcrawler but mounted it w/ a fly in it's mouth.
We found a few schools of wipers at Pueblo in Plum Creek cove and No Name cove this past weekend. They were hitting all day on shad jigs. I was wondering if there are better areas on the lake? Here's pops with a nice one. I think they are one of the hardest fighting fish in fresh water!
course so did minnows, nightcrawler, leeches and anything else thrown at them today. caught one eight inch walleye wich was more than the four boats I talked to combine, blame it on the full moon , the heat, whatever only thing I know is I lost four dozen worth of minnows with two blade baits ...
...but I didn't. Metal Militia strikes again!!
After my commenting to Z I would be down for hookers and blow I figured I had better post and let everyone know all I really want to do is catch eyes. Don't want this kind of stuff getting back to my wife or, Jenny for that matter - don't want...
Got another eye tonight and lost a couple. Fished a couple hours!!! Got this dude on a lipless crankbait I found on the shore!!! Can’t wait til the fall. I feel like it’s gonna be money

I hit a lake near steamboat this evening from shore. It was my first time fishing it. Got two nice bows. They were both about the same size. Then I lost another. Got one on a kasty and one on a jerk my college buddy made several years ago. It’s been chilling in my box and I finally pulled it out...
