Twin Lakes 4/15

Drove to Twin Lakes Saturday afternoon. Fished Sunday morning targeting big Lakers. Threw big swim baits, spooks, and spoons. No luck. Downsized to a husky jerk and caught a couple of stockers. Going to try again in a week or two and see if I can catch the Lakers up shallow.

Cherry Creek 4/5

Windy day. Slow fishing, managed 3 walleye, two keepers. Trolling about 1.8-1.9mph. Used the new Marcum camera to look at a ... poll or something I kept getting snagged on.

Cherry Creek w/ Dan

My friend Dan took me fishing at Cherry Creek to show me how to troll there. We trolled bad shads at about 1.8 mph just above bottom. Caught about 6 fish with one keeper. Not a bad day. Learning how to long line and use down riggers was interesting. I think it will be very useful when the fish are scattered.

First trip of 2018

Chatfield and Cherry Creek are open for boating. Now that I only live about 10 minutes from Cherry Creek I want to starting fishing there more often. I think early spring, and during the week in the summer are the only times I'll really be able to go. On the weekends in the summer Cherry Creek gets too much boat traffic to fish.

Anyway, got the boat ready Friday after work and took off to the Creek late Saturday morning. Only got a few bites, but It was really good to get the boat out.

Removing annoying seat pedestals!

My 17' boat has 7 frigging pedestals for seats! Two of them are in the back of the boat where Diane and I stand when jigging. Standing on the pedestal is uncomfortable and drives me crazy. Today I start the process of removing the back two. I have pulled the floor boards out and will plug the two holes used by the pedestals I'm removing. Then I'll take the boards to Paul's Custom Canvas to get them recovered with vinyl flooring. Hopefully I'll have everything back together in a few weeks.

Wisconsin and 11 Mile Trips

Went to Wisconsin to hang out with Christa and Burt. Did a lot of red neck stuff and had a great time. The weekend after we got back Diane and I took her son and Paul's grandson to 11 Mile to camp and fish. Both the boys caught rainbows and pike.

Granby w/ Wade July 7

Went up to Granby Friday after work with my friend Wade. Saturday we fished Granby in the morning, then went to Williams Fork in the afternoon. We did pretty good at Granby. We saw a bunch of pike at Williams Fork but could not get any to bite. We did catch one small laker there though. Sunday morning we fished Granby again. The first hour we did not get a bite. Moved back into A-Bay and the fishing was great till we had to leave around 10am.

Boat Camping At Granby 7-1

Drove up to Granby at 4am Saturday morning. We fished all day. Diane did really well, almost caught twice as many fish as I did! At the end of the day we tied the boat to a bush in Grand Bay and setup a make shift bimini/tent with a tarp. I can't get my full bimini for this boat for two more weeks. Using the tarp was ok... but wow it got cold that night. Neither one of us slept well due to being cold AF.

We got up about 6:30 am, made coffee on the bank and went fishing. Today I did really well lol. Caught a bunch, one pretty nice 22"er.

I'm really looking forward to having the new bimini. Being on a boat high in elevation on a sunny day is pretty rough.

Twin Lakes 4/15

Drove to Twin Lakes Saturday afternoon. Fished Sunday morning targeting big Lakers. Threw big swim baits, spooks, and spoons. No luck. Downs...
