Well it’s been a long time since I have posted anything about my fishing adventures! This year has been the most trying year financially since moving to Colorado, and my boat project took a hit due to it. Everything from a busted transmission, to moving the old lady in has kept me from workin’ on my Colorado XT. That is over! Aside from a pretty slick fish finder mount I am workin’ on and a drift sock, I am on the water. So far, my trips have been humorous, and when I get a chance I will fill you in on my (mis)adventures. This month happened to be the first month I have had to put some serious time in on the boat, and needless to say I am in love!

I am actually rather happy how everything turned out. The extra time I had sitting in my apartment and setting the boat up, allowed me to do it the right way. By the time I hit water, it felt like I had been using the boat for the last three years! Everything worked like a champ, as did my anchoring system. I did actually lose my secondary anchor on a trip, as I didn’t have it tied off (dumb). It was a four prong grappling anchor, and there wasn’t much love lost as it actually sucked at Pueblo (and was cheap). I had my “anchor bag” that the boat came with, and loaded it with rocks. Total shock! The damn thing works almost as good as my primary anchor!
I hit Pueblo Reservoir early in the mornin’ last week. Nuthin’ big to write home about, but managed to get a pretty small channel cat upon arriving. Most of the day was overcast, and as the sun came out I switched to a Rapala shad rap on my ultra light, pickin’ off five small mouth in a one hour run. I then tried to move through some sticks as the wind changed, and almost pooped on myself trying to get outta them, fearing a puncture.

And finally, some big boat action and one crazy fish story! My cat fishing partner and I are preparing for the Cabela’s King Kat tournament in Nebraska this month, and are trying out different rigs and patterns. By mornin’, we had boated only one ok’ish channel cat, and the bite had died down. As we were preparing for a nap at 2:30AM, my bite alarm starts to go bonkers. As I am getting up, the rod holder starts to get pulled from it’s clamp, going “THUNK-THUNK-THUNK-THUNK”. The rod started to pull out as it got horizontal, and as my fingers touched it, it was ripped outta the holder! We figured it was either a twenty five plus pound channel cat, or a twenty pound carp. I licked my wounds realizing that I had just lost a damn nice setup, and went to sleep. At 5:30AM, my other rod starts to do the shimmy shake, and as I am reeling in I find braid wrapped around my hook? I pull the braid in to find a six pound wiper, and my rod and reel that had been lost! Needless to say, I have the wiper in my freezer right now. Revenge is a dish best served with panko breading and crushed red pepper! Smile
