Spinney 7-25 and 7-26

Water level down 5 to 8 feet. Water pretty clear, lot of floating weed. Water temp about 62-65. Did well in the back on edge of drop off from 8' to 13' FOW. White tubes and perch pattern blade.

Pike was 33". Lot of 20"-22" bows, cutbows, and browns. Diane got a MA Cutbow. We didnt get a picture because it was bleeding.

July 1st to 18th

I have mostly been hitting Chatfield. Bite has been pretty solid. Last weekend I caught 26 and Diane caught 6 from 5am till about 11am. Went out on Tuesday for a few hours in the evening and caught 8, one keeper. Today managed 20, no keepers. Shad are really going off. Water temp is 71-74. Water looks to be down 10 feet or so. Clarity is not bad. The worm and jig bite seems to have slowed. Most fish have been caught with reaction style lures - JiggingRap, Blades, and snapping plastics. Been catching in 10-16 FOW. Road bed, hump around no wake buoy line, north east ledge. Have not fished Cherry Creek in a few weeks. That lake just feels so small and so little structure to fish. I feel like I run out of spots to fish. Last time out I went with Luke and did okay. I think we got 10 or so, 1 keeper. Got my MA certificate and patch for 33"ish Carp and my 34" Laker from Granby.
