Lake: Jumbo Reservoir (Julesburg)

Bluegills, bass, and eyes

Fished Jumbo from shore for a couple hours at first light. I was targeting crappie and fished with a sliding bobber with a one inch Gulp minnow. No crappie but 5 nice bluegills, and a half dozen smb up to 15 inches. I also had a crawler on another rig and managed five eyes all about 14 inches. Lots of fun.
The lake is almost full with good visibility.

How big were the bluegill? and what part of the lake did you fish

The bluegill were about the size of your hand, very colorful and robust. The location is secret.
