Finally got a chance to get out and fish after having to work the past three weekends. Hit a little spot that very few know of. Went for five hours total (2 in the morning and 3 after lunch) and was targeting largies. Got into them heavy using 2.5" crawfish pattern tubes. Ended up with 22 with the biggest being 16"

Switched to a Gene Larew Biffle O 5.5" thinking I could get some big girls to smash em. It worked as I landed another 10 over 16" with two over 20" and much to my surprise the crappie hammered 'em too. Ended up with 12 crappie and kept 7 for dinner.

No pics of the bass. Don't want to give away any secrets. Biggest crappie was just over 12"

Way to go-you've got a boat ride at Pueblo whenever you want one.

Thanks Byron. My weekends should be more consistent now that the rainy season has passed (hopefully). I have a few more business items to sell off and then I will have three day weekends the rest of the year. For now, I really only get one day off and its normally Friday or Saturday.

Thanks Pikester. I appreciated the almost invite....LOL We'll get together I'm sure. Like I said to Byron; I have a few loose ends to wrap up with selling my business and then
"Its on like Donkey Kong". My yak is looking kinda lonely on the driveway for sure...

Stoked and quite shocked at the size. I knew there were some in there, but didn't expect anything quite that big. PM me and I'll fill you in on some details.

Way to get into em, sounds like a great day of bass fishing. I love me some tube jigs. Just got back from a week long fishing trip and went through sooooo many tubes.
