So if you guys are curious they were biting every time we dropped the bait down. If you hang the leech right below the bait ball you'll get a hit every single time. They were obviously not all keepers but I would say every 1 out of 7 or so fish were legal size. It wasn't on the video but we caught some huge trout in the 22 - 24 inch range as well with the leeches.

Never tried that at Pueblo. I've got a friend that rigged LED lights from Tractor Supply all around his boat... angled down to the water. He just fips one switch and lights up the world. Works great. I have the floating "crappie lights" on my boat, They work good but they can hog some battery.
Hey guys! Sorry was out of town for a bit. Yes, it's south shore marina and yes it's $46 per night. I think the leeches may be out of season already but in the past crawlers have worked around this time. So far none of the 18 - 22 inch walleyes have sandy flesh disease but I did fillet one from Nebraska that had it.
Welcome back Big D . . .I'm headed down to Pueblo tonight to try my luck . . .my lights came in from Amazon and I reserved a slip at the South Shore marina . . .I got a cooler full of crawlers and plenty of finger food/snacks ,ect. will report when I'm back. The lights I ordered from Amazon came in and I tested them out . . .guess what? The lights are polarety smart . . .I got the clamps on the wrong posts of the battery and the light didn't turn on . . .I reversed the polarity and they worked just fine.

I've fished both marinas at night and from my experience I've caught about the same amount of wipers on both side. I do like the north shore cause the rules are more laxed but the south shore is much cleaner and quieter.

Gurnman, as I understand it you can only tell after I you filet the fish. It is not a problem at Pueblo as only one case has been identified that I am aware of. Iíve cleaned hundreds of walleye from Pueblo and have never seen any signs of the sandy flesh.
