From the bank or boat? I've never fished Pueblo but I need to try it one of these days. The hour drive from the Springs is a turn-off but I sure would like to launch my boat and catch some of those Pueblo Wipers. Before I moved out here in 2003 from the Bay Area in Kalifornia I used to take my boat out the Golden Gate for Salmon but mostly fished the San Francisco Bay for Stripers, Halibut, and Sturgeon. I miss catching and eating that nice white flesh of those Stripers. I really miss catching those BIG fish.

From shore. Ive caught lots of wiper from the boat. Not many this big. First Ive caught from shore in years.

Im not trying to steal anyones spot or tactics but if there are any tips or rough locations that could help a guy find some night wiper from shore, I would greatly appreciate the wisdom since the topic came up.

gravemind.dj, I've caught all kinds of nighttime bass, walleye, and just about everything else on this chartreuse colored shad rap. Another good option (especially for wiper) is a dark colored rattletrap. A shallower jerk bait can be good on the flats and points. A few general tips for night fishing:
1) A big high moon helps. Time your trips when you have some good moonlight. It helps the fish & makes it easier if you're stomping around in rocks.
2) Use "hard" colors, my favorites for night are chartreuse and black
3) Something that rattles is good
4) At night, fish above where you think the fish are.

Hope that helps a little. Good luck, and send us some pictures.

I'm going to try and head out tonight. Are there any areas I should try to find them. Any information is greatly appreciated. Sorry for all the questions but I feel like you are the right people to ask. If you don't want to make it public my email is gravemind.dj@gmail.com
