We fished Pueblo Res form 2:00 PM until Dark. very windy until 6:00. It was Slow all day. We mainly fished the south side. I did have some excitement about three quarters of the way up the south shore. I marked a nice school of fish on a drop from 25 fow to 40 fow. I decided to try to slab to them with a three ounce rainbow pattern. On the first drift I hooked something big. I brought it within a few feet of the surface and it got off (another fishing story but, I have witnesses). It did't run when I hooked it but, was a lot of weight and good head shakes. It had my 7 1/2' trolling rod bent double. I am guessing it was a cat or walleye. I have never caught a stripper. I would assume a stripper would have put up a more energetic fight? I drifted the spot and had two more strong strikes and no hook ups. It does keep my blood flowing to at least hook a rod bender. I'll be back.
