Fish: Smallmouth Bass

GF PB Smallmouth Bass, Killed me

Post By: Team CO.F.F.      Posted: 5/5/2020 12:32:53 PM     Points: 86    
GF Got her PB Smallmouth in this one! She was very excited!! She was also very excited because she 100% Outfished me for the 3rd time in her life...She always lets me know when that happens😂🤣 Very happy for her! She's really getting better at fishing, which in turn makes her want to go more...which makes me happy in the end lol!

Warm day but with the runoff flowing into the lake, it was still pretty cool water overall...Should've chose the evening bite instead of midday! Glad we at least got some though!

Hope you guys all enjoy, it was a really nice day out on the Western Slope!

How cool. My kids are full grown and cant handle touching slimy fish or bait and bugs freak them out. They like to eat fish though!!!

Sam never has had an issue with touching the fish, she used to hate the bugs but got over it thankfully. We camp the Grand Mesa and in the Flat tops area so she sort of had to or it wasn't going to work out lol. Reading your last line made me hungry haha, shouldn't have skipped breakfast...

More of my home waters - there are some great fish in there, but the bite can be finicky, especially for the bigger ones. In a couple more weeks the water should warm up and they should turn on.

Haha Glad you get to see some of your local stuff on here!! Your area seems to have the only good consistent bass fishing around. My area has a few ponds here and there and some OK stuff in some reservoirs but nothing consistent. I hear you there, I feel we chose a tough time being middle of the day...Everyone that went that evening did pretty well I heard lol. Can't wait though for it to heat up in a few weeks.
