Were Gonna Need a Bigger Boat

Were Gonna Need a Bigger Boat

Ben Krosschell

Denver CO

Glorious day in Colorado, my buddy and I got on our personal pontoon boats and went straight for the Walleye at Chatfield Reservoir in the Denver Metro area. Around 8:45 I tied on a 1/8 oz. Black Jig with a 3" Mister Twister Silver Shiner Tri-Alive Meeny Curly Tail Grub and a couple casts in it was crushed. I had never caught a fish that big in that little pontoon boat so it was kind of nerve wrecking landing him when there's really no place to put it and you have to row back to shore. Everything worked out and ive never been so thrilled. Makes me feel like im back in Minnesota!
