At least where I have been this weekend. Caught a decent fish earlier in the week that still seemed to have eggs. Got my ass kicked for six hours last night:mad: Had a much better night tonight. It has been tough so far!

I ended up with six decent Eye's tonight plus a bonus smallie. I caught a 7 lber that was completely spawned out! No wonder she was hungry!

The hunt for the big fish has been tough for me too. Eaters, I can catch. Finally got a 10 pounder yesterday. I might post it later. There were days when I would have killed to know where you fish. Now, I'm fine with where I fish, but it's nice to have more options. One of my goals this year is to catch 10 pounders from a couple of more places. Have you got your boat out yet?
I was ready to take here out a few weeks ago before we got that cold spell:( Then I got about 40 inch's of snow in 7 days. My drive way is 50 yards long and narrow. We are at 7000 feet right at the base of a higher ridge. We get very little direct sun in the afternoon. I tried to plow with one of the ATVs and broke the plow cable. Then it turned to ice.

Last week after everything melted we got the other ATV ready to pull the boat in and out of the garage and down the driveway. Something blew and it spewed oil all over the place:eek: It is now at the shop also, lol. I hope to get the boat out on Pueblo Thursday or Friday? I also have the option of storing it a t a boat storage place in Castle Rock?

I ate little pink butterflies the other night on a dam, I don't usually flat out fall but this time I did. Everything flew out of my hands, I was just glad no rods or reels broke, because I have broken both things that way a couple times.
Been there done that! I have had some nasty encounters with both rocks and hooks, LOL.

Nice fish Neal. If I remember right, the last time I fished the rocks at night, I lost five Rogues in eight casts..expensive evening.

Shoot, I stumbled on the boat last week in the light...got my feet caught in the net. Luckily my shin and head kept me from going out of the back of the boat.. Shin still hurts like heck to touch.

I found the perfect nighttime jerkbait. It has a superior action, suspends and only runs 2-3 feet deep8) So of course Rapala discontinued the Max Rap:mad::mad:
