My wife and I took Diggins and his wife out to Pueblo today and had a great day. Weather was nice until about 1100 when the wind started to whip. Even with the wind we boated 85 walleyes, 7 SMB and 8 spots. Of the eyes we got 5 keepers. Great day with some great folks. Day 2 tomorrow but the ladies are going to go shopping so it will just be me and Diggins.
Digging and I each got a 16 inch spot which was really cool.
Well Day 2 is done and it went well again. Ladies did their own thing so diggens and I hit the water. Was a good day with 93 eyes (2 keepers), 4 spots, 6 SMB and a carp about5 pounds. Thought we beat the rain but it got us just as we where putting the tarp on. Oh well we will see how it goes tomorrow.
Fantastic trip for both Becky and I. It was 1978 when I last fished P’lo from a boat and the 3 of us caught maybe 20 fish altogether. This time I felt We were with a guide but way better. Lots of laughs, some trash talk, and a bunch of corny jokes. In between was hollering for the net every few minutes to measure the “sure keeper” that was 1/8” too short. And at least half the time Russ caught em. He is an amazing stick and also gets the Carp King Belt! We both loved the variety and quality of the warmwater species that Western Slopers are denied on our own waters. Russ and Karen make the best Philly Cheese Steaks on the planet and their place is like an upgraded Cabelas with all the mounts and collectibles. Felt like we won an expense paid trip to a Canadian lodge and lake. Hopefully we will return the favors sooner rather than later!

I am planning to go down to Pueblo with my Kayak this coming Thursday. Any suggestions on what I should be using to get into the Walleye? I've heard a jig head in about 15 feet of water would work but have never fished Pueblo. Any help would be great!
