Antero Fishing Well

Post By: SGM      Posted: 9/21/2018 8:50:38 AM     Points: 9425    
A buddy and I hit Antero yesterday and caught a few piggies and had a ball. Tried to get out in our small kayaks but the wind and chop on the lake proved to be a bit to much for us so we shore fished it. Started fishing about 7 once we got the yaks back into the truck. Once in our spot it did not take long to hook into the first fish a nice fat 21.5 inch cutbow. We fished until 1 pm and ended up landing 13 with 4 being 21.5, 22, 22 and 23 inches. The rest where in the 17 to 19 inch range. Had several other fish on that jumped and tossed the hook. also had several other strikes that we just did not close the deal on. Oh well that is fishing. 10 of the fish caught where cutbows, the other 3 rainbows. Hit a few fish on Kastmasters but tube jigs where the ticket for us.

Sounds like a great day in spite of the wind, congrats and thanks for sharing.I seldom have caught fish without some wind down there as long as it doesn't get too strong.
