Hit Spinney Mountain yesterday and did well despite the cold and brutal winds. Ended up catching 22 with over half being 20 inches or better. Had at least another 20 hits/fish on that I lost. All caught using tube jigs and fishing them slow on the bottom. Will make another trip next week and hope the winds are down a bit from the 25-30 MPH they were. Rainbow was just under 24 inches and the brown just over 23.

SGM, now you got me trying to get a fishing trip up to Eleven Mile and Spinney worked out here in the near future! Seriously, that is some serious gold medal fishing you got in there. Not many places here in Colorado you can go and have action like that on quality sized fish. Congrats and thanks for posting it up!

SoCo, lots of fun and well
SoCo, lots of fun and well worth the trip. What sucks is I cannot get back out for at least 2 more weeks due to a weeding I have to go to back east. Wife and I went to Blue Mesa yestreday and did well on trout catching 27 along with 6 nice salmon. Trout were between 12-18 inches so not as big but still fun. If you go to Spinney let me know and I can tell you what and where I fished.

Thanks, back east is cool but
Thanks, back east is cool but the wedding is in Chicago, not much for the big city. I have a friend who lives down your way in Glouster Ohio.

Thanks man! Appreciate the info offer. If I can get a trip together I will hit you up! Survive and enjoy your trip to the big city and the wedding (I'm like you don't like big cities)!

Great catch, I haven't been
I haven't been able to get out this year yet at all. Tree branch fell on my boat and caused 7k worth of damage a couple weeks ago so the curse on my boat continues.lol Insurance approved the claim but it will be a few weeks for sure to get it all fixed.

Man that really sucks. Hope
Man that really sucks. Hope it gets fixed sooner than later. We talked last year about fishing Blue Mesa so once your all fixed up let me know and maybe we can meet up for a weekend at BM.
