Samantha's Aunt and Uncle came to visit us recently, of course to see Sam but they also wanted to go fishing with the both of us! We wanted to get some channel objectives done and also take them somewhere nice so we went to one of the main clusters of lakes up on Grand Mesa. We hit Alexander Lake and Hotel Lake, and got into a few decent trout. Neither Sam nor I had ever fished either of these. Sam's Uncle also had an unfortunate hand hook with one of the crankbaits.
Lots of activity, really thinking if I had fly fishing down I would've landed 10x more fish as lots of them were rising and eating bugs off the top.... Speaking of that I've gotten the fly rods all lined up and ready to go, going to start practicing some casting and hoping to get out and get into some bluegill this weekend (Friends tell me best place to start if learning on my own). REALLY REALLY EXCITED TO LEARN THIS TECHNIQUE!!
Back on track, had a great time with Sam's Uncle and Aunt, wish we would've gotten them into some more fish. We considered belly boating but didn't want to leave Sam's Aunt and Uncle on the shore LOL. Hope you enjoy the video, we switched up the intro on this one! [log in for link]
