1. Well with a little contemplation and advice from Capt. Morris I picked me up a Lew’s Mach Crush Baitcaster Reel on sale at Cabelas for $119 + tax! They had the Crush ...more Combo for $149 + tax but with more presents to buy I just bought the reel! (😢) I already had a 7’1” MH St. Croix Mojo Bass Baitcaster Rod that I got in the Bargain Cave at Cabelas last Spring for a fantastic deal at $35 + tax!! That rod usually goes for $129 + tax! Now all I have to do is hope for some large amount of snowfall to fill up are really low Reservoirs and get out in Spring for the pre-spawn bite!

      Morris is correct! You will not be disappointed Bryan! Awesome reels, loved the grips on them.... no slip! Flawless👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
    9. Those big bass don't stand a chance now!
    10. Nice Bryan !! Ask Robert, Jared and Arlen how the liked them. They all caught many bass last week on the Mach Crush and all landed one over 10 lbs. Robert of course ...more was over 12 lbs..:))

      Man that was a steal. Those are good Rod's Bryan. I've got 4 of those St Croix Mojo's and love them.

  2. Here’s Chet’s best Brown from today! The fish were really lethargic due to the Browns being in Post Spawn! Surprisingly no Bows today! This area is a really scenic ...more place to fish!

  4. Cold and slow day fishing the Colorado River today with Chet! The temps ranged from 35-44 degrees with partly/mostly cloudy skies! I caught this nice chunk 19” Brown ...more as well as a nice 18” Brown on a #5 & #7 Rapala Countdown in the Hot Mustard Muddler Pattern while Chet caught the first fish of the day a fat 18” Brown on a 1/16 oz Crappie Jig.Chet ended with the most numbers wise but I caught the best fish!

      Thx Jimbo! We enjoyed the few fish we caught! He talked to a head cancer doctor in Denver and they have another step to attack the cancer that spread to his liver! ...more The only thing is this next procedure is new and expensive so he’s hoping his insurance will cover it! Appreciate all your comments! 👍🍻

      Awesome brown! 👊 Looks like it wasnt to bad for you guys lol. At least you had another memorable fishing trip with a great buddy 👍🍻🎣🎣
    4. Noah Shapiro 0
      Yea, but don't get them wet or they are useless
    5. Yea they are nice because the fingers are accessible and you can tie knots and so on! If your fingers get cold just flip them for a bit.
    6. Bryan Harper 0
      I’ll be getting a pair soon!👍
    7. Noah Shapiro 0
      I just got some like that before nationals, trust me Brian they are life savors
    8. Bryan Harper 0
      Thx Kevin! I’ve seen the ones you’re talking about! I really don’t like wearing gloves while I’m fishing but do need a pair! 👍🍻
    9. Nice Browns Bryan! Just an FYI I where bow hunting gloves They are gloves with fingers cut out and mittens that flip over them which you can put hand warmers in ...more They work great the only down side is you have to remove them to handle fish. I don't like the neoprene ones! Hard to fish with them on!
    10. Bryan Harper 0
      Thx guys! Noah it was pretty cold on the hands with releasing the fish! I need to get me some good gloves! When you reach the age of 50 a lot of things change! Lol!

      Oh please Bryan, that ain't cold. ;)

  6. I fished the Colorado River today with my friend Lee for about 5 hours! It was a little slower than the last two trips numbers wise but after landing some decent ...more Browns on those trips I finally got into a nice chunky Bow on this trip as the sun was setting! I caught it using a Dynamic J-Spec in the Brown Trout Pattern!

  8. I fished the Gunnison River in the East Portal section of the Black Canyon National Park today with really low flows landing 28 Trout! I had to get back down here ...more to fish because they close this road after the first good snow! It’s a 16% grade downhill with lots of switchback making it extremely dangerous,especially with icy conditions! The day was chilly with mostly cloudy skies!! I started the day off with five little Browns and then got into some decent vivid Bows on Rapala Countdowns! It wasn’t until the last couple of hours that the fishing really turned on.I lost two of my Dynamic J-Specs so I had to switch to a 3 1/8”” Rapala Husky Jerk in the Redfire Craw pattern which preceded to land me a 17” Bow and Brown! In the same area I pitched the Husky Jerk out again and got slammed by this nice 19” Male Brown! Fun day despite losing 3 Lures ,which is never good!

    7. Bryan Harper 0
      I use 8-10 lb Power Pro,Berkley Nanofil or Tuf-line with a barrel swivel and a 18-24” P-Line Fluorocarbon Leader! The Braid on a slack line jerk gives the lure way ...more more action than either fluorocarbon or monofilament alone

  9. I stopped and did a “little” Bass fishing today on my way back from picking up some Dynamic Jerkbaits in Grand Jct! (60 miles) I know the owner and get a slight ...more discount! I caught quite a few hungry dinks both Largies and Smallies on Cranks and Jerkbaits. I did manage to get one decent one! But with the temps getting into the 30’s at night I guess I can’t complain! It was fun seeing the little aggressive bass hitting a Jerkbait half there size! I caught my best Largie and Smallie on a 2” square bill in a Crawdad pattern.

    1. Jimbo Harwood 0
      Damn!! that is some tanks. lol
    2. Bryan Harper 0
      Oh yeah there’s a few tanks in there! I know a few people that caught the Bass up to 7+ lbs! An occasional big Bow and few big Walleye! I seen a pic of a friend ...more the other day landing a 32” Walleye near Colorado Springs,Co! This Reservoir that I caught this Bass has a few Walleye in the 30” range! This lake can be tough but has some tanks in all of the four main species and an occasional Bluegill to 12”
    3. Jimbo Harwood 0
      Damn! im sure theres a 5 in there the way that chuncker .. Always one bigger lmao 👊🍻🍻🍻

    10. Bryan Harper 0
      Thx Robert & Josh! This lake is 500 surface acres but it’s shore only fishing! There are some big Largies and Smallies as well as a few Big Walleyes(29”)! It ...more can be a really tough lake sometimes but I know a guy who caught a 7 lb Largie on a Whopper Plopper
    11. Nice chunk Bryan.
    12. Very nice Bryan! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

      Thx Morris & Tod! Tod there’s only supposed to be a few lakes in Colorado that have them and they’re in SE Colorado? Unless someone did some bucket biology? ...more This Reservoir is in Western Colorado! I’ve never caught a spot that I know of but it does kinda look like one with the smaller mouth! I’ll have to take a closer look next time! This fish did strip some pretty good drag for its size!
    14. Tod Fisher 0
      Nice looking fish Bryan, is that a Spot though?
