The last few days I have seen several Tigers cruising along the shores at Prospect Ponds. Haven't been able to get a bite yet tho.

I'm pretty sure he's talking about the ones in Fort Collins. I don't think the Prospect Park Ponds in Wheatridge have ever been stocked with tiger muskies.

Prospect Pond No. 3 in Ft. Collins has them. I saw one a few months ago (about a 25-27 incher) chilling near a submerged tree. Now that they're starting to pop up more, I'll have to start hitting that pond more often. That pond is full of nice bass also. However, there was apparently a chemical spill in the first pond, near the paved parking lot. That used to be my favorite bass pond. I used to sight fish with plastic worms and catch about 15-20 largemouths (between 13-16 inches) every three hours or so. Not any more though :-[

MileHighBassin --- Thanks! Now I'm psyked again. ;D
I've only the fished the Ft. Collins ones a few times. (I ussually fish Dixon, if I'm out there). I'm going to have to go back now though.

No, I was talking about the Prospect Ponds in Fort Collins. I think the ponds you are thinking of are Prospect Park Ponds.

Do you ever do well at Dixon? I used to hear that there were some big bass in there, but I've never really given that lake the attention it probably deserves.

I fish off the cement thing? I don't know what you'd call it? :-[
I caught one of the best Bass I've gotten so far there. I ussualy catch 2 or 3, w/ only one of those being over 15. I like it bacause it's consistant, and I've heard there are some giants in there. I'm still hoping ;)
The last time I was there (maybe 3 weeks ago?) it was real low. I'm hoping it gets higher soon. I want to take a kayak there, and try some of the spots that don't get as much pressure.
