Pueblo 5/19 to 5/22

Wore out, so just going to post notes. I love the campsite, we stayed at #52 in Arkansas loop, might try 53 next time if possible. It looks a little more private. Arkansas loop is super close to the South boat ramp.

  • when water was flat calm snapping plastics did not work - seemed better with worms then
  • when wind picked up I could search for pods of 3-6 fish and catch a few pretty much everytime
  • caught a 19.5" super close to the bank
  • Jigging rap was working well in 20mph winds
  • Lost a LOT of gear. Looking into weed guards and Texas rigging - skin hooking.
  • Spent way way too much time tying leaders, hoping weed guards and Texas rigging will help with this, if not I might need to ditch braid for PLO - Also, maybe a barrel swivel.. the hope would be the floro would break off and I could just retie to the barrel swivel.
  • Use a shorter leader - 3' ?
  • Big fish really like shallow
  • SMB seems to be getting more active
  • Need to try different styles of working soft plastics - snap and pendulum, tiny snaps, draging etc
  • Water temp mid to high 60s
  • Broke the tips of 3 rods!! (Me one, Diane two)
  • Fished with Russ and Chris.
