This is my first time posting on this site. Hello to all. I am a Colorado Springs based angler mainly interested in brook trout, brown trout, and smallmouth bass.
However, I recently received some valuable intel from SGM that "artic bass" could be found in Pueblo Reservoir if one could only get past the voracious hordes of smallmouth and walleye. After a couple of scouting trips from both the shore and boat, I was finally able to locate one of these beauties.

It was definitely a fortunate catch for a first spot. I did get a good length measurement on it as I had been measuring a few 17"+ walleyes. Regarding the weight, I was guessing somewhere between 3.5 to 4 pounds. The problem with my guessing is that I tend to overestimate. However, I bet that fish in pre-spawn condition (full of eggs) could get close to the record.
