cherry creek eye = hard work...

Hit the creek from 1630-1840, and it was an awesome temp of the day(77 degrees), no wind, few boats. I long lined a silver spoon about 2"s long 75' back on one rod, and a bomber/or flicker silver blood shad on a second rod every 15-20 minutes to no avail...after hitting the usual better spots, I put the trolling gear away. I went to jigging the best humps I know, and caught one -14"er and one -18 1/2"er. Hard work, but to compete with a gazillion shad all over was tough. My Lowrance actually seemed to appear as if I turned on simulation mode, due to all the blobs of bait fish on the screen, hard to pick out wally's out. I set up on the humps on the top with no luck and jigged, but on the steeper end of the humps, jigging from shallow to deep 6-14' was the ticket for me.

Nice reward. May I ask what spoons or jigs worked for you?

FJ- the spoons were Williams spoons-plain silver 2" long, made in Canada, you can get them off the shelf at Cabelas, and regular old silver and gold jigging spoons off the shelf at wal mart or Cabelas. Hope that helps-nothing fancy on the hardware, just persistence and a good cadence to the jig-lift and reading your line on the fall... hop hop-pause etc.
