Blue Mesa perch n trout

Post By: Digginjiggin      Posted: 8/7/2023 1:43:04 PM     Points: 505    
Fished BM with Mason, my oldest grandson today. Got some nice perch and several of rainbows. A few samples of what we kept to make a meal of tacos. Went out of Iola boat ramp, worked well. Ended up with 10 trout, 2 keepers and 30 perch, 13 keepers.. Great day with the kid!

A new boat Jerry? Is this part of your retirement plan? Hopefully you didn't cash in your pension to purchase it.
I know you are in love with Blue Mesa, but you really should meet me at that little river northeast of you. Its finally coming into shape and giving up some monster trout. I will be up there Sunday and Monday. And bring as many grand kids as you want to.

No worries, Lance. The boat is a lightly used 2015 Alumacraft Trophy that I found in Rochester, MN for a great price, sold my old one for almost half of that. Loving it, but you are right, the Gunnison is calling. Had a nice day there a week ago, I lost your number and email with the new phone, email me at, and letís meet both days. We have an extra bed if you are tired of camping.

I haven't been able to score any fresh fish for a few months. Those perch got me drooling on my shirt.
