About that big bluegill of mine ... um, April Fool's!

First of all, folks, my thanks to all who expressed their admiration for yesterday's Master Angler and a Half-size entry into the annual competition for Loveland Fishing Club's top angler. (see story below)

Second of all, I made it all up, even the part where I generously credited Merle Boden with recording the catch.  If it makes you feel better, I really am intent on winning the 2015 contest with a big old bluegill.  I did catch a very fat green sunfish yesterday at the little pond just south of the Loveland Recycle Center.  Does that count?  Bluegill Bill

Prater holds growing lead in race for Loveland Fishing Club Angler of the Year!

While other club members were contemplating what to order at next Friday’s breakfast, Immediate Past President Bill Prater was hauling in this handsome 20-inch bluegill from River’s Edge this morning.

It is easily twice the qualifying length for a Colorado Master Angler award.  Bill, in line with his vegan, catch and release nature, released the fine specimen unharmed.  But a tearful Tom Miller, forced to eat canned tuna for a lakeside lunch, can confirm the catch. 

Meanwhile, the contest for Angler of the Year continues through Dec. 31, with the prospect of bigger fish to come.  Submit nominations to Jim Roode.  Bragging rights will go to the LFC angler who records the biggest single fish caught in Colorado waters in 2015, based on Master Angler criteria.  Click here for details.
