Hows the fishin? I've been locked in a studio....

I've been recording an album and have not been out.  Still bike-bound so as you can imagine getting the boat to the lake is hard.  The animas is clearing up and I've seen some caddis activity.  Get'em!

Pike!

Forgive me for the lack of posts, home improvements, car trouble, and all sorts of things have kept us off the water, but it hasn't stopped us from hearing tales of glory from around the state. To the North, giant Lake Trout are biting again in Blue Mesa Reservoir. Pike action at Vallecito is off the hook, although I have a hunch once all the big pike are speared and killed, there will be a bloom of little pike, so catch the monsters while you can! Pike are an interesting bunch. One of the best predators for Pike control is... well.. Pike! Pike will happily eat their own kind, and pretty much anything else that fits in their mouth. Pike are also delicious fish, contrary to popular belief, and the bones can be dealt with nicely with a little skill and a sharp knife. Happy fishin!
