SGM Owns Pueblo

Post By: anglerwannabe      Posted: 8/19/2020 8:34:24 AM     Points: 59330    
Back in May 2020 I went to Pueblo Reservoir with my buddy SGM (Russ) for some walleye fishing. Well he put us on them as you will see. Russ is The Master there at Pueblo. We caught 60 plus fish with Russ out catching me 3 to 1. He has his technique down there and it shows. At the end we get a surprise that was lots of fun.

Thank you for letting me tag along Russ

Russ is the man on several bodies of water. I think it is his good luck charm - Libby!

Pueblo........and John Martin, Trinidad, Rifle Gap, Steamboat, Elkhead, etc. There’s a pattern there. Walleye whisperer, Jumbo Perch Jerker, Slimer King (Lol). Best I’ve ever fished with.

Very cool guys! Russ, you should have tail slapped Jim just once. That wiper was a tank!

I don’t know about owning Pueblo but we do pretty good. It’s a great fishery.

Thanks guys always nice to get out with my friends.

Brad you figured it out. Libby is the key to it all. I need to start making hair jigs from her fur. Lord knows she sheds enough of it.

A10, Always lots of company at Pueblo, especially if you’re catching and they are not.

gonna tell you SGM's secret. If you look in the background you will see JDavis and his wife. Fishing with SGM is like fishing with a pod of Orca's. All those boats are SGMs pod. They start with huge nets and a huge circle then they slowly tighten the circle driving the fish into SGM's area until finally all the fish are herded to underneath his boat. After that... it's all easy pickens.

The Pueblo Walleye Flotilla gets it done. It's pretty cool to fish with a community of people who really share the wealth. Russ is an awesome guy and always willing to point you at the fish.

thanks for the support guys.... surprised no one commented on Russ's giant stick fish. He's pretty good at catching those too.

I’ve only fished Pueblo once with Russ, and I can tell you he has that reservoir figured out!
I will also tell you he’s a person of integrity, and an all around good guy.
He’s had more than his share of adversity in his life, but just like the Energizer Bunny, he just keeps going and going...(and fishing and fishing!)
I am privileged to know him. Ski

American Wolf - does he make you bait his hooks for him? Apparently that's why he takes me along.. he likes using worms but doesn't like touching them. Says they're icky

Ski - man SGM already has an oversized head! lol
